Rays 0, Yankees 9: Odorizzi blinks first before pitchers duel turns to blowout

Rays 0, Yankees 9: Odorizzi blinks first before pitchers duel turns to blowout

Brian McCann still owns Jake Odorizzi, and one of the Chris Youngs hits a grand slam. It was bound to happen sooner or later; the Rays played a game where you look up at the final score and say "well, I guess I didn't miss anything." Except you kinda did. Because for six innings, this was a helluva game. The First Five Through five inning, both Tanaka and Odorizzi had shutouts working. Jake had scattered three singles over those five innings -- two of them to his nemesis, Brian McCann -- to go along with seven strikeouts and zero walks. Included among the strikeouts was a first inning K...

White Sox 12, Tigers 3: Offense unloads in support of Chris Sale

Melky Cabrera, Jose Abreu and Adam LaRoche at center of season's biggest explosion The White Sox offense isn't so bad that it was going to continue averaging 2.8 runs per game. The Tigers pitching staff isn't so good that it was going to continue limiting opponents to one earned run every 36 innings at home. Today went a long way to correct those two outliers. The Sox scored a season-high 12 runs, which was 12 times as many runs as the Tigers had allowed over their first four dates at Comerica Park combined. The White Sox posted their biggest inning of the season with a four-run third,...

Felix Hernandez pitches through sore quadriceps as Mariners beat Rangers, 3-1

SEATTLE – Six days removed from leaving his last start due to a tight quadriceps and a twisted ankle, Felix Hernandez’s health on Saturday night was an estimated “98 percent,” according to Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon. The Texas Rangers, who found Hernandez mostly unhittable, might disagree. Or simply wonder how much better The King might have been with that other two percent. Sharp as ever, Hernandez struck out 12 batters and allowed only two hits in seven innings – and the only run he allowed was the byproduct of a puzzling hit-by-pitch ruling – as the Mariners snapped … ...

Analysis: Detroit Tigers dealt only second loss in 2015, but this one was ugly from start to finish

For just the second time this season, the Detroit Tigers suffered a loss. But unlike the first defeat, which was dealt last Monday, this loss was ugly -- from start to finish. DETROIT -- There's going to be days when Detroit's explosive bats will bail out a poor pitching performance. And days when Detroit's starting pitching will rescue a sluggish offense. Then there will be days when it will all go wrong for the Tigers. Like Saturday. For just the second time this season, the Tigers suffered a loss.
