    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Tony Gonsolin pitched five scoreless innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers threw a four-hiter against the San Diego Padres’ supercharged lineup, winning 8-1 Friday night after honoring Vin Scully. Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts led the stadium in a unison call of Scully’s signature “It’s time for Dodgers baseball” during a memorial before the game. Scully died Tuesday at age 94. The NL West rivals met for the first time since San Diego acquired superstar Juan Soto, Josh Bell and Brandon Drury ahead of Tuesday’s trade deadline. The Dodgers extended their division lead to 13 1/2 games over the Padres and showed no signs of slowing down. Gonsolin (13-1) struck out six and allowed three hits. Soto was showered with “Future Dodger” chants at Chavez Ravine last month when he played in the All-Star Game with his name on the trade block. Washington sent the 23-year-old to Los Angeles’ rival instead, and Soto was booed in each at-bat Friday. Soto and ex-Dodger Manny Machado had two of the Padres’ four hits. The Dodgers...
    CINCINNATI (AP) — Tony Gonsolin said he hasn’t done anything extraordinary on the way to becoming the first nine-game winner in the majors this season. “It’s just throwing a lot more strikes,” the 28-year-old righty said of his success in 2022, which includes a 9-0 record and sparkling 1.58 ERA. He hasn’t gone more than 6 1/3 innings in a start and exited after five in the Dodgers’ 8-2 cruise over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. He allowed three hits, two of them solo homers that accounted for the Reds’ only runs of the sweltering evening. He leaned on his four-seam fastball, and his slider and splitter got even better as the game progressed. He struck out four. “I feel like I’m throwing a lot more competitive pitches this year and able to get some early contact, which allows me to be more efficient and go deeper into games,” he said. Gonsolin said he still felt great when he came out after 87 pitches. “Weathered some traffic, gave up a couple homers. But man, I thought he was fine,”...
    The ball off Adley Rutschman’s bat rattled its way into the right field corner, allowing the catcher to cruise into second base with a double. That was as close as the Orioles would get to crossing home plate Tuesday night against the Washington Nationals. The 24-year-old rookie became the first Baltimore hitter to reach scoring position, and it took until the seventh inning to do so. He would be the last, too. The Orioles managed just three hits to accompany Rutschman’s seventh double of the season, a flat effort against another losing ballclub that halts the momentum from a series win against the Tampa Bay Rays. Right-hander Erick Fedde got away with several mistake pitches en route to his 3-0 win, weaving his way past the 26 pitches the Orioles fouled off him to post six scoreless innings. Baltimore (30-39), meanwhile, failed to back up right-hander Jordan Lyles in his best start in a month. “Hopefully I’ll be able to build on the last start or two,” Lyles said, “and for us tomorrow to pick up the bats and try...

    CINCINNATI (AP) — Tony Gonsolin became the first pitcher in the majors to win nine games, Freddie Freeman drove in five runs and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-2 on Tuesday night. Gonsolin (9-0) gave up two runs and three hits through five innings and 87 pitches, relying mostly on a four-seam fastball and mixing in a splitter and slider. The 28-year-old righty has a 1.58 ERA. Of the three hits Gonsolin surrendered, two were solo home runs, by Jonathan India leading off the Reds first and Albert Almora Jr. in the second. Four Dodgers relievers threw scoreless innings to wrap it up. Meanwhile, Reds starter Tyler Mahle (2-6) was lucky to give up only four runs through six innings. He allowed 12 hits but manage to strand eight runners. Will Smith homered into the left-field seats in the first inning for the Dodgers, his ninth the season. Freeman put the Dodgers ahead in the third after back-to-back singles by Gavin Lux and Trea Turner, hitting a two-run double into the right-field corner. Freeman delivered...
    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jack Suwinski hit his third homer of the game in the ninth inning, giving the Pittsburgh Pirates a 4-3, walk-off victory over the San Francisco Giants on Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep. The rookie drove a slider from Tyler Rogers (0-3) to right for his second game-ending home run of the season after connecting for one June 4 against the Arizona Diamonbacks. Suwinski is the first Pirates rookie to hit three homers in a game since Andrew McCutchen on Aug. 1, 2009. The 23-year-old Suwinski took a sinker from starter Alex Cobb deep for a solo shot in the fourth before doing the same to Sam Long for a 3-2 lead in the sixth. He has 11 home runs in 47 games this season, tied with Bryan Reynolds for the team lead. Thairo Estrada homered off Pittsburgh closer David Bednar leading off the top of the ninth, tying the game at 3. Bednar (3-1) was working his second inning of relief and struck out two of the final three batters to end the ninth. Mitch...
    CINCINNATI (AP) — Josh Rojas hit a go-ahead single during a four-run rally in the ninth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-4 on Thursday, earning a split in the four-game series. The Diamondbacks went into the ninth trailing 3-1, but got help from reliever Tony Santillan’s wild tosses. Pavin Smith drew a leadoff walk, went to second on a wild pitch by Santillan (0-1) and scored on Alek Thomas’ single. Santillan then threw away a bunt for an error, and a sacrifice set up Rojas’ two-run single through a drawn-in infield that made it 4-3. Rojas later scored on a grounder. The blown lead by the Reds wasted a solid pitching performance by starter Tyler Mahle, who allowed one run and four hits with a season-high 10 strikeouts over six innings. His biggest mistake was a fastball left in the middle of the zone that Smith snuck just inside the right-field foul pole for a home r leading off the Arizona fifth. Mark Melancon (2-6), the second of three relievers for the Diamondbacks, got the win....
    AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Ethan Gourson and Carson Yates hit home runs, catcher Darius Perry went 4-for-4 and UCLA steamrolled Southeastern Louisiana 16-2 in an elimination game of the Auburn Regional on Saturday. UCLA (39-23) will play another elimination game on Sunday morning against the loser of Saturday’s nightcap between No. 14 overall seed Auburn and Florida State.

Ethan Flanagan went four innings in a start for the Bruins, allowing an unearned run on two hits and three walks. Jake Saum (4-0) relieved Flanagan and picked up the win with a scoreless inning of work.

    CHICAGO (AP) — Luis Urías lined three-run homer into the basket in left-center to break a seventh-inning tie, and the Milwaukee Brewers held on to beat the Chicago Cubs 7-6 in the opener of a day-night doubleheader on Monday. With the score 4-4, Mike Brosseau singled off Daniel Norris (0-3) with two outs and Kolten Wong walked. Urias Urías hit a 3-2 slider for a drive that barely made it over the ivy, his fifth homer this season. Milwaukee trailed 4-2 before Tyrone Taylor’s two-run homer in the sixth off Matt Swarmer ied the score on a warm afternoon with the wind blowing out. Jace Peterson lofted a long solo drive for Milwaukee, which won its second straight and dealt the Cubs a second straight loss. Swarmer and Milwaukee’s Ethan Small made their big league debuts. It marked the first time in Brewers history that both starters made their debuts and the first for the Cubs since 1944. Swarmer tossed six innings, allowing four runs — one earned — five hits and one walk in six innings. The 28-year-old right-hander...

(AP) — Sophomore Timmy Manning and freshman Fisher Jameson combined to throw a six-hitter, Jud Fabian gave No. 7 seed Florida the lead for good with a second-inning home run and the Gators advanced to the championship game of the SEC Tournament with a 9-0 romp over No. 2 seed Texas A&M on Saturday.

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Leadoff batter Angel Zarate reached base five times, scoring four runs, to spark No. 8 seed North Carolina to a 9-2 victory over No. 12 seed Clemson in first-round pool play at the ACC Tournament on Tuesday.

    PHOENIX (AP) — Zac Gallen struck out seven in seven crisp innings, Jose Herrera hit a two-run double for his first big-league RBIs and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Colorado Rockies 4-0 on Sunday. Ketel Marte had three hits to boost his average to .206 and the Diamondbacks took advantage of another shaky start by Colorado’s Germán Márquez (0-3) to win for the ninth time in 12 games. Gallen (2-0) allowed five hits and Arizona’s bullpen held a day after Mark Melancon gave up four runs in the ninth inning of a 4-1 loss. The Rockies failed to capitalize on an early opportunity against Gallen and finished with five hits to get shut out for the second time this season. Gallen and fellow right-hander Merrill Kelly have anchored an Arizona starting rotation that had the majors’ second-best ERA at 2.33 entering Sunday’s game. Gallen escaped runners on second and third with one out in the first inning and stranded two more runners in the fifth. He has allowed three earned runs and with 26 strikeouts in 28...
    A wayward throw from Boston Red Sox reliever Hirokazu Sawamura on Orioles catcher Robinson Chirinos’ bunt attempt allowed Jorge Mateo to score easily and give Baltimore a 2-1 walk-off victory Saturday at Camden Yards. With two on and no outs in the bottom of the 10th, Chirinos laid down a bunt that Sawamura fielded between the mound and home. He attempted to nab the lead runner Mateo at third, but his throw went high, and the speedy Mateo came home without issue. It gave the Orioles (7-15) a victory in a game in which Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning. Two turns through the lineup against Eovaldi, Baltimore’s only base runner came opening the second inning when Austin Hays reached on shortstop Xander Bogaert’s error. After Eovaldi recorded the second out of the fifth with his seventh strikeout — and Chris Owings’ 12th in his first 17 at-bats as an Oriole — leadoff man Cedric Mullins lined a double to left, but Anthony Santander followed with a groundout, continuing Baltimore’s yearlong struggles with runners...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Alex Wood pitched five effective innings and San Francisco’s bullpen closed it out, leading the Giants to a 5-2 victory over the Washington Nationals on Saturday. Wilmer Flores and Joc Pederson each had two hits for San Francisco, which won for the third time in four games. It beat Washington 7-1 in the series opener Friday night. Wood (2-0) allowed two runs and four hits. The left-hander struck out five and walked one. Wood’s career ERA at Nationals Park rose slightly to 2.85 in eight starts. It is second best among all active pitchers (minimum 40 innings pitched) behind Jacob deGrom’s 2.80. “I had a lot of good battles against the Nats my first three years with the Braves,” Wood said. “They’ve got a good mound, and just getting prepared and trying to stay sharp. I don’t think there’s one thing I can point to why I’ve had success here, but I like pitching here. It’s a good part to pitch in.” After Wood departed, Dominic Leone, John Brebbia and Tyler Rogers each pitched an inning...
    CHICAGO (AP) — Alfonso Rivas had three hits and five RBIs, and the Chicago Cubs stopped a four-game slide by pounding the Pittsburgh Pirates 21-0 on Saturday. Rivas, who was recalled Friday from Triple-A Iowa, capped Chicago’s eight-run second with a three-run homer. He tacked on RBI singles in the fourth and fifth. The Cubs finished with 23 hits in their most lopsided shutout win dating to at least 1901. Nico Hoerner collected a career-high four hits, and Seiya Suzuki, Willson Contreras and Ian Happ had three hits apiece. Each played that batted for the Cubs (7-8) collected at least one hit and scored at least one run. It was more than enough support for Kyle Hendricks (1-1), who pitched seven innings of two-hit ball.

Zach Thompson (0-2) was tagged for nine runs — four earned — and nine hits in two innings. Thompson allowed four consecutive hits with one out in the second...

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — Miguel Cabrera and Robbie Grossman hit back-to-back home runs to lead the Detroit Tigers to a 4-3 interleague victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night. Two days after hitting his 500th homer, Cabrera connected on No. 501. He crushed a 79-mph slider by starter Jack Flaherty into Big Mac Land, which is name of the upper left field deck, in the third inning. At 423 feet, it was his second longest home run this season. The Cardinals immediately removed Flaherty (9-2) with what the team said was right shoulder tightness. In two innings, Flaherty allowed four runs on four hits with three walks on 46 pitches. He velocity dropped dramatically after the first inning. The 25-year-old starter missed 60 games (June 1-Aug. 12) with an left oblique strain.

    SEATTLE (AP) — Kyle Seager hit a two-out, two-run single as part of Seattle’s four-run third inning, Marco Gonzales won his second straight decision, and the Mariners inched closer in the American League wild-card chase with a 4-3 win over the Oakland Athletics on Sunday. Seattle took three of four in the series and pulled within 1½ games of the A’s for the second wild card in the AL, perhaps setting up the Mariners to be buyers rather than sellers ahead of the trade deadline. The Mariners (54-46) are eight games over .500 for the first time since April 2019 and improved to 23-8 in one-run games. The Mariners did all their offensive damage in the third inning against Oakland starter Cole Irvin, scoring four times with two outs.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Alcides Escobar homered in the eighth inning and hit a winning single in the ninth Sunday as the Washington Nationals wrapped up a disturbing weekend with an 8-7 win over the San Diego Padres. A day after the game was suspended in the sixth inning because of a shooting outside Nationals Park, the Padres completed a 10-4 victory. Washington then came back to end a six-game losing streak. Tres Barrera singled off Mark Melancon (2-2) with one out in the ninth and, after failing on a bunt attempt, Victor Robles was hit by pitch.

    Yankees: Good news and bad news in Gerrit Cole domination over Chicago Alexander Wilson May 22, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees’ starting pitching has been so good the last four games, they have enjoyed 30 straight innings of scoreless play. The last time a streak like this was in flux, the year was 1932. Impressively, the Yankees have allowed just one run over the last four games, winning five consecutive contests despite lackluster offensive play at times. To start this incredible streak, Corey Kluber threw a no-hitter on Wednesday, followed by a phenomenal performance by Domingo German and Jordan Montgomery striking out 11 batters on Friday. Of course, Gerrit Cole couldn’t wait for his opportunity to shine, pitching 7.0 innings and allowing four hits, and striking out seven batters. Cole currently hosts a 1.81 ERA, and the relief pitching continues to dominate. However, the Yankees are dealing with significant injuries in the outfield and are being bailed out by their pitching regularly. This recipe can only last so long. Good news...
    Everything seems to be going right for Adam Frazier these days, so he's trying to keep his superstitions in check. Whatever he's doing has worked thus far as the Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman leads the NL with 58 hits and has hit .386 in 83 at-bats with eight doubles in his last 20 games since April 28. Frazier said he's even careful to put his toothpaste and toothbrush in the same spot to begin each day. "I put my pants on every day when I come to the field, which foot I put on the bench to tie my cleats first because I don’t tie my cleats until I get out in the dugout," he said.

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Nick Solak and Charlie Culberson drove in three runs apiece, Kyle Gibson pitched seven strong innings and the Texas Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-3 Tuesday night to end a season-high four-game losing streak. Solak delivered the biggest blow in a four-run fourth-inning against Ryan Yarbrough (0-2), a double down the left field line that cleared the bases after the Rangers loaded them with three consecutive singles.

    SOUTH WEBSTER — The No. 4 was the magic number for Clay senior Clay Cottle on Tuesday. In the Panthers’ 16-2 road win over South Webster, Cottle finished 4-of-4 at the plate, totaled a game-high 4 RBI and scored four runs to lead Clay offensively in each category. Cottle also pitched four innings in the winning effort, allowing no hits and no runs while striking out eight Jeep hitters.

    Fernando Tatis Jr. is feeling a lot better, a huge relief to the star San Diego shortstop, his team and his many fans. A day after Tatis walked off the field during an exhibition game in a worrisome scene, the Padres said the discomfort in his left shoulder had improved. In fact, the flashy 22-year-old wanted to play Wednesday night against San Francisco in Scottsdale, Arizona. No way, manager Jayce Tingler said. “He’s feeling really good today. In fact he was lobbying to get in the lineup today, so I thought that was very encouraging,” Tingler said. “He’s going to have a good work day today and we’ll kind of see where it goes. I think everybody’s kind of expecting him to be back in the lineup in the next day or two. Very encouraging news,” he said. The sight of Tatis suddenly leaving Tuesday’s game after making a backhanded play was a jolt to the Padres, who have high expectations for this season coming off San Diego’s first playoff appearance in 14 years. Tatis has quickly become one of...
    By The Associated Press No surprise here: Max Scherzer will have the ball in his hands when he begins the final season of his seven-year, $210 million contract with the Washington Nationals. Scherzer will make his Nationals-record sixth opening day start April 1, facing the New York Mets in Washington. It’ll be a rematch of an exhibition mound matchup Sunday, when Scherzer allowed two homers and threw 90 pitches in five innings of a 6-2 loss to the Mets and starter Jacob deGrom in West Palm Beach, Florida. “He’s the guy. He’s the guy that gets everything started for us,” Nationals manager Dave Martinez said in explaining his decision to use Scherzer in Game 1 — which, of course, was the expected outcome. “He competes. You know what we’re going to get from him,” Martinez said. “He loves opening day. So he’s a guy we want to follow opening day.” It’s quite a way to get things going for Major League Baseball: three-time Cy Young Award winner Scherzer against two-time honoree deGrom. As for the rest of his rotation, Martinez...

    By The Associated Press Washington Nationals reliever Will Harris has a blood clot in his right arm and the team doesn't expect him to be in the bullpen on opening day. Harris is leaving spring training camp to be examined by a specialist, manager Dave Martinez said Friday. “I don’t know much about what’s going to happen here. But for me, when somebody mentions something like that, it’s kind of a scary deal,” Martinez said. “Until we know more about it, then I got to assume that he’s going to not start with us this season.” The Nationals open on April 1 at home against the New York Mets. “He felt weird his last outing,” Martinez said. “So we kind of backed off a little bit, got an MRI, and in the arm was a little small blood clot.” Harris last pitched in an exhibition game on March 9, throwing one scoreless inning against the Houston Astros. The right-hander appeared in a “B game” on Saturday. Harris, then with Houston, gave up a go-ahead, two-run homer to Washington’s Howie Kendrick...

    Just over two weeks before opening day, Francisco Lindor and the New York Mets have begun talking about keeping him in town beyond this season. The newly acquired All-Star shortstop and the team have started discussing a long-term contract, he said Tuesday. “I will not renegotiate during the season,” Lindor said after hitting his first home run this spring, connecting against Houston’s Jairo Solis during the Mets’ 8-3 win. “I will go to free agency. If something carries on during the season, it’s not fair for me. It’s not fair for the team. I’ve got to give everything I’ve got into winning baseball games. So if it doesn’t happen in spring training, I’ll go to free agency. We’ll talk in November, December, whenever free agency starts," he said. As for now? “Nothing serious,” Lindor said. “We’re just talking.” The Mets obtained Lindor from Cleveland in January, and he's signed for this season at $22.3 million. The 27-year-old Lindor was an All-Star for four straight seasons before 2020, when there was no Midsummer Classic before of the coronavirus pandemic. New York...
    The Boston Red Sox have plenty of questions heading into the season, and shortstop Xander Bogaerts doesn’t want to be one of them. "I will be completely ready for opening day," Bogaerts said after going 0 for 2 with one strikeout in Boston’s 8-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday, his first spring training game this year. "I feel completely ready right now."

    Michael Conforto and his New York Mets sprinted to celebrate the World Series title. While it was a spring training defensive drill, in their minds it was Game 7 of the World Series — and the New York Daily News captured it on video. That’s because first base coach Tony Tarrasco told them to simulate the sport’s ultimate game. "It’s fun to have a camp day like that and see the guys ramping up the intensity at game speed and also simulating our biggest goal," Mets manager Luis Rojas said Wednesday. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM The drill was to make 27 consecutive defensive outs without an error as Rojas and Tarrasco hit fungoes. New York last won the World Series in 1986, when the Mets rallied with three runs in the 10th inning to beat Boston in Game 3 on Mookie Wilson’s grounder past Bill Buckner, then overcame a three-run deficit to win Game 7. "It got really intense. That’s our goal here. We’re here because we want to win the championship," Rojas said. "We want to...

    HOUSTON (AP) — Yordan Alvarez hit a three-run homer in his first at-bat of the season after recovering from COVID-19, connecting during a nine-run burst in the first inning that sent the Houston Astros over the Seattle Mariners 11-1 on Friday night. Alvarez was the AL Rookie of the Year last season when he hit .313 with 27 homers. He missed the first 18 games of this season following a positive test for the virus before summer camp. Alvarez drove in four runs in his 2020 debut, including his opposite-field shot off Nestor Cortes in the first. Alvarez came up again in the inning with the bases loaded, but grounded into a double play. Cortes (0-1) was named the starter less than an hour before first pitch after originally slated starter Yusei Kikuchi was scratched with neck spasms. Cortes, who is primarily a middle reliever, was making just the second start of his career. Cortes allowed seven runs on five hits and retired only one batter before he was pulled. Houston starter Framber Valdez (1-2) settled in after a lengthy...
