Stros sweep, with 7-1 win

Another tightrope act by Reynaldo López, and that’s about it on the good side for the Sox Reynaldo López and the White Sox led through five innings by the slimmest of margins, but the Houston Astros offense proved too much for the Chicago bullpen, completing the sweep with a 7-1 win. López once again walked the tightrope, allowing four walks and four hits, but escaping with just one run. His ERA is now down to 1.50 for the season. The White Sox snatched a 1-0 lead in the second, with successive two-out doubles to right by Matt Davidson and Yolmer Sánchez. In the fifth, the third trip...

White Sox keep it below double digits but lose again to Astros, 7-1

Three days, three blowout losses to the Astros. The only difference Sunday is that there were some beanings, with Houston right-hander Lance McCullers plunking Wellington Castillo and Yolmer Sanchez. The White Sox bullpen was so wild in Chicago’s 7-1 defeat, you couldn’t tell the brushbacks from...

Big homers help Royals beat Tigers, 8-5

Abraham Almonte and Mike Moustakas come through in the clutch. It was a back-and-forth, wild affair on Sunday afternoon, but the Royals used two big home runs to beat the Tigers, 8-5, and salvage a split in the four-game series. The Tigers jumped to a 2-0 lead on Erik Skoglund, and Francisco Liriano held the Royals scoreless through the first five innings. Then came the sixth inning - the Sonic Slam inning.

Rays 8, Twins 6: Carlos Gomez walks off the Twins

Phil Hughes was shaky early, but bullpen ultimately loses game for Twins. Phil Hughes is finally back; he wasn’t awful but he wasn’t very good either. In the first inning, he threw a lot of pitches and surrendered a 2-run homer to C.J. Cron. Hughes would eventually work out of that inning after a mound visit settled him down somewhat. In the 2nd inning Eduardo Escobar hit a solo home run to right to make the score 2-1. In the third, Eddie Rosario singled to score Brian Dozier from 2nd to tie the game. Hughes worked 1-2-3 innings in the 2nd and 3rd, but opened the 4th with back to...

Yankees history: The 1941 Yankees’ crazy run

Yankees history: The 1941 Yankees’ crazy run

Maybe calm down on the hyperbole about this year’s bad start. The Yankees’ start to this season has been understandably frustrating to fans. It’s certainly got some wondering if they’re a playoff team, never mind a contender for anything more. It’s always possible that’s the case. This start could torpedo any chances they have at making a run. History, however, has shown that it could ultimately mean nothing. The 1941 Yankees were coming off a third-place finish in the American League the season before. Prior to that, the Yankees had won four consecutive World Series from...

Royals 8, Tigers 5: Bad, bad bullpen

The Tigers’ bullpen combined to cough up five runs in a disappointing loss. Francisco Liriano took a no-hitter into the sixth inning in his start against the Kansas City Royals on Sunday. Six batters later, Liriano was done for the day and Detroit’s 2-0 lead had become a 5-2 deficit. While the Tigers would tie the score in the bottom of the inning, Kansas City added three more runs off of Detroit’s relievers to win an 8-5 contest at Comerica Park. Liriano was charged with three runs, but only one — a Whit Merrifield solo home run — came when he was on the mound. Liriano departed...
