Souza’s home runs lead Rays to victory

Thursday, 2 a.m. Steven Souza said he had to figure out a way to get a runner home. He did. After all, hitting the ball over the fence usually will get runners in from anywhere on base. Souza homered twice Wednesday night, leading the Rays to a 5-2 win over the Angels, Tampa Bay's first […]

Red Sox 9, Rangers 4: Red Sox lineup comes through with late rally

Red Sox 9, Rangers 4: Red Sox lineup comes through with late rally

Things are starting to trend in the right direction. In yesterday’s recap, I talked about how the Red Sox consistently found ways to pick up Rick Porcello after he had a rough inning. Tuesday’s game went back and forth and the Red Sox never really felt like they were out of it because they kept tying things back up before exploding late in the game. It took a little longer to come through on Wednesday, but eventually they exploded once again and it led to a big victory to keep the team’s momentum up the standings going. For the most part, the offense was quiet against Rangers starter...

Tanner Roark more like Tanner Roark in Nationals’ 5-1 win over Mariners in D.C.

Tanner Roark more like Tanner Roark in Nationals’ 5-1 win over Mariners in D.C.

Tanner Roark gave up just one run in seven innings as he bounced back from a recent run off less-than-stellar starts for the Nationals. Winless in his last four starts before Wednesday night’s (and 0-2 with a 6.23 ERA and 4.98 BB/9 in 21 2⁄3 IP over that stretch), Tanner Roark told reporters in Pittsburgh last week, (after giving up eight hits, four walks and seven earned runs in five innings), that he felt he was being tested. “The game is testing me right now,” Roark said, “and I just got to fight back and not give in and continue to work hard and keep doing my thing.” “He...

Washington Nationals’ lineup for 2nd of 3 with Seattle Mariners in D.C.

Washington Nationals’ lineup for 2nd of 3 with Seattle Mariners in D.C.

Joe Ross has received a ridiculous amount of run support (62 runs in 4 GS), but among qualified starters, Tanner Roark has the third-highest run support in the NL. In nine starts this season, Washington Nationals’ right-hander Tanner Roark has receieved 55 runs of support from his teammates, good for the third-highest average run support in the National League in 2017. Roark currently trails only Zach Davies of the Milwaukee Brewers (6.44) and Colorado Rockies’ starter Antonio Senzatela (7.11) in terms of average run support among the qualified starters in the NL. That’s nothing, of...

Chris Bassitt’s locker becomes A’s Zen zone

Chris Bassitt’s locker becomes A’s Zen zone There was something Zen-like in the air before the A’s played the Marlins on Wednesday. Was it the pervading presence of something supernatural? Did it help the team win? Whatever it was, it emanated from pitcher Chris Bassitt’s locker, which was converted into a Zen garden. Sonny Gray, who occupies the neighboring locker, said the calm and relaxed attitude carried over to the game. If we’re going to put this thing together here,” Gray said, “we’re going to have to play well at home and we’re going to have to get everyone...

The Tigers snapped a three-game losing streak with a 6-2 win over the Astros. HOUSTON -- Daniel Norris got stronger as game went on, and the evidence showed in the box score and the radar gun.

The Tigers snapped a three-game losing streak, won their first game against the Astros and made at least modest progress in breaking through an offensive slump.

Injuries to Hahn, Alonso compound A's loss to Marlins

Tuesday's 11-9 loss to the Marlins was costly for the A's as starter Jesse Hahn exited and Yonder Alonso left in first game back from an injury.

Giancarlo Stanton, Justin Bour power Marlins' best offensive night of season in win over Athletics

It’s not a winning streak, but it’s the next best thing: two out of three. The Miami Marlins beat the Oakland Athletics, 11-9, on Tuesday at Oakland Coliseum, their second win in their past three games — a feat they hadn’t accomplished in a month. In their best offensive night of the year, with...

Jesse Hahn, Yonder Alonso hurt in A’s loss to Miami

Oakland’s feel-good vibe at home was tested severely Tuesday when the A’s starting pitcher and their All-Star candidate first baseman exited with injuries. Jesse Hahn left in the third inning with a right triceps strain, and first baseman Yonder Alonso - who’d hit his 13th homer earlier in the game - was struck on the wrist by a pitch in the sixth and left after the inning. Hahn, whose velocity dipped significantly in the third, gave up a season-high five earned runs in the A’s 11-9 loss to the Marlins. Alonso had just missed the previous four games with a slight knee sprain, and...
