19-31 - Cole Hamels cools off Yankees in 6-4 win for Rangers

Cole Hamels returned for seven sterling innings while cleanup hitter Jurickson Profar provided the big blast The Yankees have been on a tear of late, losing just four games in the last month’s worth of games.

Though the Yankees did hit three home runs tonight, the two that came off Hamels were both solo shots and the Rangers were able to get out ahead of that output just four batters into the game as cleanup...

Minor League Wrap: South Bend hammers Lugnuts

Minor League Wrap: South Bend hammers Lugnuts

South Bend won big. Iowa loses a controversial one. The “feud” between me and I-Cubs outfielder Lane Adams is over, thanks to one of you who asked him why he had me blocked on Twitter. Apparently it was the result of some sort of anti-spam program he was using (which raises a whole bunch of new questions) and he graciously unblocked me. So the whole thing was just a misunderstanding. Adams celebrated the “truce” with a triple and a run scored tonight in a 1 for 3 game. He also walked once.

18-31 - Yankees take it to Colon, Rangers lose 10-5

The Yankees hit five home runs and the Rangers only hit three home runs The Rangers tried really hard to help Bartolo Colon win his 243rd career game, which would have drawn him even with Juan Marichal for most ever by a Dominican born hurler. Unfortunately for the Rangers, the Yankees kept rudely hitting dingers off Big Bart every time the offense tried to get the squad back in the game. Despite bombs from Joey Gallo, Ronald Guzman and, yes, even Rougned Odor, the Rangers were outdone with Aaron Judge, Neil Walker, and Gleyber Torres (twice) taking Colon deep during his 5 1⁄3 innings....
