Tigers 8, Twins 6: Hunter, Cabrera home runs bail out Scherzer and bullpen

The Tigers' pitching staff blew a six run lead, but the offense bounced back behind back-to-back ninth inning home runs from Torii Hunter and Miguel Cabrera. The win allows the Tigers to maintain their 1 1/2 game lead over the Royals. Max Scherzer on the mound and holding a six-run lead, it appeared the Detroit Tigers were on their way to an easy win against the Minnesota Twins. Turned out the night was anything but easy, the Twins tying the game at 6-6 in thanks to a two-run eighth. But the surging Tigers flashed their power bats, Torii Hunter and Miguel Cabrera drilling back-to-back home...

Notes: Derek Jeter sits as he slumps

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Derek Jeter is hitless in his last 24 at-bats. He is also 40. Does one number have to do with the other? "I'm not sure," Joe Girardi said. "It is not like he hasn't been through the rigors of a long season before. He's done it. The question that is always going to come up is his age. I can't tell you yes or no. I can't give you an exact answer." Girardi chose to give Jeter the day off on Monday because of the late flight following the Sunday night game in Baltimore.

What is a Cole Hamels worth to Boston?

Cole Hamels would be a fantastic addition to the Red Sox rotation. But in a free agent market with plenty of options, is a trade really called for? While we've yet to glimpse even the smallest actual flame, there's been plenty of smoke surrounding the Red Sox and a potential trade for star Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels. Even before it was clear that the Red Sox would be heading into the offseason with neither a new contract for Jon Lester, nor John Lackey's option year, there was talk that the team would be looking to acquire Hamels and his four-year contract from Philadelphia rather than...

Nats Journal: Tonight’s Nationals-Braves lineups

Unless the Braves make a miraculous recovery and win their way into a one-game playoff, Stephen Strasburg will get his fifth and final shot of the season to beat the Braves tonight. He improved against them in their last meeting at Nationals Park, allowing three runs over six innings. For the season, though, Strasburg is 0-3 with a 7.17 ERA against the Braves. Strasburg is winless in nine starts against the Braves since the start of 2013. Read full article >>

Does Derek Jeter have any magic left?

There are, baring a miracle run to October, exactly two weeks left in his career -- and Derek Jeter has not had a hit since Derek Jeter Day. If you're counting, he is 0 for his last 24 at-bats. Over the weekend, his on-base and slugging percentages both dropped below .300. In the WAR category, Jeter is a negative-0.2, meaning, according to the stat that some love and others love to hate, the 40-year-old shortstop is technically having a worse year in his final season than your average, run-of-the-mill minor-leaguer, waiver-wire pickup or bench player.

Jonathan Papelbon Gets Tossed After Blown Save

Cinco-Ocho GonnoAh, the memories. Former Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon was ejected from yesterday's game after giving up four ninth-inning runs in a blown save at Citizens Bank Park. As he left the field to boos, Papelbon grabbed his crotch in a perverse salute to the fanbase. After that little move, umpire Joe West tossed the big righty. Entering the ninth ahead 4-1, Pap gave up a slew of hits—including a lead-off double to another Ex-Carmine Hoser, Jarrod Saltalamacchia. The scenario brings back bad vibes from the final game of the 2009 Division Series against the Angels.

Before final game at Camden Yards, Yankees' Derek Jeter shares memories

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter said his final visit to Camden Yards this week brought back memories of his first full season in pinstripes. That year, he played against the Orioles in the American League Championship Series and he was in awe of Cal Ripken, Jr., whom Jeter still regards as a role model.
