    PHOENIX (AP) — Geraldo Perdomo hit a two-out, two-run single in the eighth inning, then made a terrific diving snag on a grounder in the ninth to preserve the lead, lifting the Arizona Diamondbacks over the Colorado Rockies 6-5 on Friday night. The Rockies led 5-2 after six innings, but the Diamondbacks cut the deficit to 5-4 after Josh Rojas hit a two-run double in the seventh. Arizona rallied again with one out in the eighth when Jake McCarthy hit a single and Emmanuel Rivera doubled to put runners on second and third. Carson Kelly grounded out, but Perdomo followed with a soft liner to right-center that just cleared the glove of leaping second baseman Brendan Rodgers. Perdomo followed in the ninth with a fantastic defensive play, diving for a grounder up the middle by C.J. Cron, before jumping to his feet and firing across the diamond for the second out of the inning. Alex Colomé (2-5) took the loss, giving up the two eighth-inning runs. Chris Devenski (1-0) got the win with a scoreless eighth. Ian Kennedy worked...
    CINCINNATI (AP) — Brandon Drury reached 20 homers for the first time in his big league career — when he hit a tiebreaking drive in the eighth inning to give the Cincinnati Reds a 3-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday. Drury broke a 2-2 tie in the eighth with his homer on a splitter off Felix Bautista (3-3). ″I was trying to stay on the fastball,” Drury said. “I was a little bit late on one. I was trying to cover for the split. He threw the split and I barreled it.” Drury, whose previous high was 16 homers for Arizona in 2016, entered as a pinch hitter in the sixth inning. “Really good players, great players want to be up in that spot,” Reds manager David Bell said. Cincinnati went 14-12 in July following a 6-4 homestand. Alexis Díaz (3-1) won despite allowing a tying home run in the eighth to Anthony Santander. Buck Farmer got his first career save in six chances after an eventful ninth inning. “It has been a long time coming, six years...
    MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers have displayed a flair for the dramatic ever since returning from the All-Star break. Luis Urías delivered a game-ending sacrifice fly in the ninth inning to bring home Andrew McCutchen as the Brewers edged the Minnesota Twins 7-6 on Tuesday night. The NL Central-leading Brewers have gone 4-1 since the All-Star break. In three of those wins, they were tied or behind in the eighth inning or later. “It’s certainly been a dramatic homestand from that perspective,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “You fight to get the wins. This is an example of home games, really, just being at home and having that last shot.” McCutchen started the winning rally with a one-out single off Tyler Duffey (2-4), who then walked Kolten Wong and Hunter Renfroe to load the bases. Urías followed with a fly ball, and McCutchen slid home head first well ahead of right fielder Alex Kirilloff’s throw. This came four nights after Urías hit a walk-off single in the 13th inning of the Brewers’ 6-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies....

    .The Athletics don’t do things the easy way. That much was evident during a 9-7 road win Saturday over the Kansas City Royals, a game the A’s appeared to have in hand before reliever Sam Moll failed to get an out in giving up a three-run home run to Michael Taylor in the eighth inning. The A’s led 8-4 after Tony Kemp’s two-run home in the top of the eighth. Kemp also had a pair of doubles and the game’s defensive gem, spearing a line drive out with a sprawling dive in the first inning. The win in 95-degree heat and Midwest humidity snapped a four-game losing streak as the A’s improved to 24-49. The Royals, who came in having won five of seven, fell to 26-44. “This game kind of showed this team’s fight,” A’s manager Mark Kotsay said. “They won as a team today. Each guy picked each other up. Every single guy that came into the game just grinded.” The A’s got an insurance run in the ninth when Christian Bethancourt scored on a two-out wild pitch...
    ST. PETERSBURG — Gerrit Cole paced up and down the dugout between the late innings. The Yankees ace has accomplished a lot in his career, but he had never thrown a no-hitter. He sprinted onto the field to start the eighth. The crowd of mostly Yankees fans at Tropicana Field were growing louder. Cole wanted it. Isaac Paredes denied Cole the no-hitter and Clay Holmes finally allowed runners to score on him, but Aaron Hicks and Wandy Peralta wouldn’t let the night get away from the Yankees. Hicks’ triple and Peralta’s scoreless inning both in the ninth sparked the Yankees to a 4-2 win over the Rays. It’s the 13th time this season the Yankees (50-17) have responded with a win after losing a game. They have only lost back-to-back games three times this season and they’ve not had a losing streak longer than three games. The Rays (36-31) have lost four straight to the Yankees now and six out of their last seven games. The Yankees improved to 25-11 against the American League East, and are the first team...
    ST. PETERSBURG —  Gerrit Cole had his no-hit bid broken up in the eighth, and Clay Holmes finally surrendered a run. It didn’t matter. After watching their bullpen blow a lead for the second straight day, the Yankees simply rallied in the top of the ninth for a 4-2 win over the Rays at Tropicana Field. It’s the 13th time this season the Yankees (50-17) have responded with a win after losing a game. They have only lost back-to-back games three times this season and they’ve not had a losing streak longer than three games. The Rays (36-31) have lost four straight to the Yankees now and six out of their last seven games. The Yankees improved to 25-11 against the American League East, and are the first team in baseball to reach 50 wins. Josh Donaldson singled with one out off Jason Adam and scored when Manuel Margot was injured on Aaron Hicks’ fly ball to the wall in right field. Margot crashed into the wall and had to be carted off after apparently injuring his knee. Hicks scored...
    STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) — Catcher David LaManna had a two-run double in the bottom of the first inning before a 5-hour, 59-minute rain delay and Jared Miller scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the eighth after play resumed as Notre Dame held off Texas Tech 3-2 in the Statesboro Regional on Friday. Notre Dames (36-14) will play the winner of Saturday morning’s postponed game between tourney host Georgia Southern and UNC Greensboro, later Saturday. Texas Tech (37-21) will play the loser of the postponement in an elimination game prior to the Fighting Irish game. Texas Tech pulled even at 2-all in the top of the eighth on Easton Murrell’s two-out two-run single. Notre Dame pushed across the winning run in its half of the eighth. LaManna reached on catcher’s interference to lead off the inning and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Jack Penney. Miller came on to pinch run, stole third base and scored on a wild pitch by Mason Molina. Chase Hampton took the loss in relief for the Red Raiders despite allowing...
    BOSTON (AP) — Anthony Santander hit a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning and also had a two-run homer, helping the Baltimore Orioles overcome a pair of six-run deficits to beat the Boston Red Sox 12-8 Friday night. Baltimore trailed 8-2 before Jorge Mateo hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning and Austin Hays added a two-run shot in the eighth. The Orioles also capitalized on a throwing error by third baseman Rafael Devers for the tying run in the eighth. READ MORE: Maryland Weather: Rain Showers Continue But Expect A Sunny WeekendSantander’s single against Matt Strahm (2-2) dropped just in front of sliding right fielder Jackie Bradley Jr., allowing Cedric Mullins to score. Mullins led off the inning with a single, then took third on Trey Mancini’s single with a slick slide around Devers’ attempted tag. The Orioles piled on three more runs in the ninth, and Jorge Lopez didn’t allow a runner in the bottom half. Baltimore’s bullpen limited Boston to one hit after the fifth inning. Boston fans booed as the Orioles celebrated. Baltimore outhit the...
    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Bradley Brehmer pitched a complete game four-hitter and eighth-seeded Indiana scored six runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to eliminate fourth-seeded Illinois in the Big Ten Tournament on Friday night. The Hoosiers (26-31) bounced back from a heart-breaking 11-inning loss to top-seeded Maryland to face the loser of the Michigan-Maryland game on Saturday. Brehmer (5-4), a senior transfer from Wright State, had his best outing for the Hoosiers, holding the Illini (31-22) to a sixth-inning run that tied the game 1-1, a tie his teammates quickly broke with an unearned run in the bottom of the inning. He struck out six, walked two and hit a batter. Five different players drove in a run in the eighth when Indiana used four hits, two errors, a walk and a hit batter to break it open. Phillip Glasser finished with two hits and two runs batted in, Carter Mathison drove in a pair of runs and Tyler Doanes scored twice. ___ More AP college sports: https://apnews.com/hub/college-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25 Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Whit Merrifield drove in two runs with a double and scored on Bobby Witt Jr.’s double, as the Kansas City Royals rallied for three runs in the eighth inning and beat the Minnesota Twins 3-2 Thursday night. Josh Staumont (2-1) worked a scoreless inning and picked up the win.

    Tony La Russa has been in baseball for a long time. The Chicago White Sox manager described Thursday night against the New York Yankees as “some ‘see it to believe it’ stuff.” The teams entered the eighth tied, but the Yankees scored seven runs with two outs in the inning to beat the Sox 15-7 in front of 20,050 at Guaranteed Rate Field. Said La Russa: “That eighth inning, two outs, nobody on, the way the ball is coming out of (reliever) Joe (Kelly’s) hands, to look up and see a seven spot, you had to see it to believe it.” Kelly retired the first two batters of the eighth, but walked the next three to load the bases for slugger Aaron Judge, who hit a slow grounder up the middle which second baseman Leury García fielded. Judge beat García’s off-balanced throw to first and two runs scored on the sequence. Anthony Rizzo walked and Giancarlo Stanton drove in two with a bases-loaded single against Tanner Banks. Josh Donaldson followed with a three-run homer, the fourth home run of the...
    Nestor Cortes had one question for Matt Blake this winter. The Yankees 36th round draft pick, who doesn’t light up a radar gun with a high-90s fastball, spent the first five years of his professional baseball career just trying not to get released. “He called and asked me if I thought he had an outside chance of making the team,” the Yankees pitching coach said. “I told him ‘I think you got a shot at making the team. We’ll see where it ends up.’” Monday, Cortes proved himself more than worthy of that rotation spot again, striking out 11 and taking a no-hit bid into the eighth inning as the Yankees edged out the Rangers, 1-0, in the series finale at the Stadium. The Yankees (20-8) have won 15 of their last 18 games and own the best record in the American League. Cortes worked around four walks, but pitched 7.1 scoreless innings. The Yankees were also being shutout until Aaron Judge scored from first on Anthony Rizzo’s fly ball double to left-center field in the bottom of the eighth....
    TORONTO — Aaron Boone pulled the wad of gum he had been chewing out of his mouth and tossed it to the left behind home plate as he came out of the dugout in a fury. The Yankees manager had been upset with home plate umpire Marty Foster’s strike zone, particularly against slugger Aaron Judge, all night. Boone was furious after Judge took two pitches — which appeared to be out of the zone according to the MLB Statcast — that were called strikes. Boone came out at 2-2 in the count to argue. “The time before (Yusei) Kikuchi was just trying to pitch around (Judge) and so I was obviously upset a little bit there,” Boone said referring to Judge’s sixth-inning strikeout. “And there were a couple of other (calls). But yeah, nothing more. Nothing more than that. We’re playing for a lot and it just felt like there were a couple (pitches) that didn’t go our way.” Foster and crew chief Ron Kulpa declined to comment on the ejection, but it is likely MLB will review video of the...
    Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw was on the verge of a perfect game when he was pulled in the eighth inning. The ace threw 80 pitches and struck out 13 batters in the first seven innings of Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Twins, falling two innings shy of a chance to notch a perfect game. Still, the Dodgers pulled through with a 7-0 win. Only 23 perfect games have been recorded in MLB history, the most recent by former Seattle Mariners right-hander Felix Hernandez in 2012. To constitute a perfect game, no batter from the opposing team can reach base. ALYSSA NAKKEN BECOMES FIRST FEMALE MLB COACH TO APPEAR ON FIELD Fans were visibly upset with the decision, many taking to social media to dispute Dodgers manager Dave Roberts's decision. "I don't care about any of your extenuating circumstances — Let the man go for the perfect game," Mark Freund, sports reporter for WHO 13 News, tweeted.

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Tylor Megill delivered his second straight scoreless start for the Mets, Brandon Nimmo homered and New York beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-0 on Tuesday night. Francisco Lindor had an RBI single for the Mets, who recovered from blowing a four-run lead in the eighth inning against Philadelphia on Monday night to snap a two-game skid. READ MORE: Northeast Philadelphia Community Members Call For Peace Amid Growing Gun ViolenceMegill (2-0), who got a spot in the rotation only when two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom was sidelined by a shoulder problem in spring training, again looked like an ace for 5 1/3 innings. After throwing five shutout innings to win on opening day at Washington, Megill outpitched Zack Wheeler (0-1). Megill gave up just three hits, walked none and struck out five. The burly 26-year-old righty has allowed just six hits while striking out 11 without a walk in his two starts. Mets manager Buck Showalter lifted Megill in the sixth after Johan Camargo singled and went to second on Simon Muzziotti’s sacrifice bunt. Reliever Chasen...
    Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm admitted that he said he “f—ing hates this place” during Monday’s game against the New York Mets at Citizens Bank Park. The Philadelphia Phillies had quite the eventful Monday night. They bounced back in the eighth inning from a 4-0 deficit to defeat the New York Mets 5-4. In the beginning of the game, Bohm managed to commit three fielding errors, all of which were on throws to first base. After throwing out Starling Marte in the second inning, Bohm was sarcastically cheered by the fans at Citizens Bank Park. That was when Bohm was seen saying “I f—ing hate this place.” Bohm was asked about it after the game, where he confirmed that he said it. Bohm said that he did not mean to say it and that his emotions got the better of him.

    WASHINGTON — A couple of defensive slip-ups and a questionable relief option sealed the Amazin’s first loss of the year, a 4-2 defeat to the Nationals on Sunday at Nationals Park. The Nationals erased the Mets’ 2-1 lead in the eighth inning after right-hander Trevor Williams came in to relieve southpaw Chasen Shreve with no outs and a runner on first in a one-run game. The goal, which was not accomplished, for Williams was to retire the bottom of the Nationals lineup before it reached Juan Soto. Instead, Williams allowed a single to his first batter, Maikel Franco, to put runners on the corners with no outs. Then came the defensive miscues, as the ball kept finding first baseman Pete Alonso. Nationals shortstop Lucius Fox placed a sacrifice bunt right toward the charging Alonso, who hesitated on his throw to home plate. The speedy Dee Strange-Gordan beat the throw to the dish, and the Nats tied the game. Moments later on a Cesar Hernandez ground ball, Alonso threw the ball wide to shortstop Francisco Lindor, and instead of a turning...
    ST. LOUIS (AP) — Adam Wainwright (1-0) pitched six scoreless innings, Tyler O’Neill hit a three-run homer and drove in five, and the St. Louis Cardinals celebrated Albert Pujols’ return with a 9-0 season-opening win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday. Yadier Molina threw out a runner trying to steal second in the first game of his final big league season, and Nolan Arenado and Tommy Edman also homered for the Cardinals, who won the managerial debut of 35-year-old Oliver Marmol. Paul Goldschmidt drew four staight walks, the first player to do that on opening day since Manny Ramírez in 2002. The Pirates had just six hits and lost budding star Ke’Bryan Hayes to left forearm spasms in the first inning — just hours after news began to spread that Hayes had agreed to a $70 million, eight-year deal. JT Brubaker (0-1) allowed four runs over three innings. Fans stood and cheered Pujols for nearly a full minute prior to his first at-bat, a flyout to left in the first inning. Pujols, who signed a one-year deal with St. Louis...
    LOS ANGELES (CNS) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers will attempt to even the National League Championship Series at two games apiece Wednesday at Dodger Stadium after rallying for a 6-5 victory over the Atlanta Braves in Game 3.Cody Bellinger hit a game-tying three-run homer in the eighth inning and Mookie Betts doubled in the game-winning run three batters later.Tuesday's victory averted the Dodgers falling behind in the best-of-seven series 3-0, a deficit which only one team in baseball has overcome, the 2004 Boston Red Sox, spurred on by a ninth-inning steal of second base in Game 4 by Dave Roberts, now the Dodgers manager."For us to go down 3-0 and hope for a 2004 miracle run is a tall ask," Roberts said. "And so we were dead in the water, you could see it. Luke's coming in and throwing 97 miles an hour and you get a squibber, you get AJ (Pollock) riding a base hit up the middle, to get behind in the count and to hit a homer, it just flipped everything."We got a very good ball club,...
    Yadier Molina and Paul DeJong were the key players for the St. Louis Cardinals as they got out of the eighth inning against the Dodgers. In sports, you never know when your moment might come. Yadier Molina and Paul DeJong were up to the task for the Cardinals when their number got called in the eighth inning of the NL Wild Card Game. Molina has been the old hat guiding St. Louis through thick and thin. He proved his defensive chops preventing Trea Turner from stealing by blocking two breaking pitches. Those were critical plays that saved the Cardinals in a tough spot. Turner is one of the fastest runners in all of baseball, and the fact he was able to keep him at bay without even a steal attempt with Gallegos on the bump is impressive.Yadier Molina and Paul DeJong were huge in the eighth inningMolina wasn’t the only one who came up big in that inning.

    New York Yankees Recap: Yankees lose a squeaker in the eighth at Rogers’ Center William Parlee September 29, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit After an incredible run of winning seven games in a row, the New York Yankees hoped to win another one tonight, taking the series from the Blue Jays. The Yankees swept the Red Sox and, with the win last night, retook the number one berth in the wild card race, gaining home-field advantage and putting the Red Sox two games behind, but the Yankees couldn’t get complacent as the Blue Jays, and Seattle Mariners were nipping at their heels. With five games to go in the regular season, the Yankees sent their ace Gerrit Cole to the mound at Roger’s Center in Toronto to face the Jays Jose Berrios. At the end of the night, with a homer by Bo Bichette in the eighth, the Blue Jays edged the Yankees 6-5. The game started with DJ LeMahieu at the plate and Jose...
    Giancarlo Stanton followed a strong performance on Friday night against the Red Sox by creating a definitive moment in New York’s season — should it end memorably for the Yanks. Stanton went 3-for-5 and added his 32nd home run of the season on Friday. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM In Saturday’s Game Two against Boston, Stanton knocked a grand slam home run at the top of the eighth inning, bringing home Brett Gardner, Aaron Judge and Anthony Rizzo. Stanton’s go-ahead homer, off the left-handed Darwinzon Hernandez, was his 33rd score of the season — propelling the Yanks to a 5-3 lead at the top of the eighth inning. The Yankees held on for the win. Entering a crucial eight-game regular season stretch on Saturday, the Yankees were keen on surviving their consecutive game at Fenway Park, and was made possible by Stanton’s end-of-season clutch play. In a post-game interview, Yankees manager Aaron Boone described the dugout as "electric" after Stanton’s score. CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP "Just a lot of really big time at-bats...
    Corbin Burnes made a statement about why he’s the NL’s best pitcher with a dominant no-hit performance against Cleveland on Saturday. Corbin Burnes didn’t become the eighth pitcher to throw a no-hitter in 2021 tonight, but he may have just authored the most dominant performance of the season. Burnes, the Brewers’ golden-haired right-hander, breezed through the Cleveland Indians lineup on Saturday. He struck out 14 in eight innings. He struck out at least two in each of the first five innings, and at least one in every inning but the sixth. He didn’t allow his first baserunner until the seventh. But, three outs away from joining Juan Nieves as the only pitchers in Brewers history to throw a no-hitter, Burnes was lifted by manager Craig Counsell before the start of the ninth. He had already thrown a career-high 115 pitches and, with Milwaukee nursing a 3-0 lead at Progressive Field, Counsell didn’t want to risk any harm to his golden arm. Not since 1974 has a pitcher been removed from the game before the ninth inning with a no-hitter intact....
    Jonah Heim hit a two-run home run with two outs in the eighth to cap a five-run rally, lifting the Texas Rangers past the Oakland Athletics, 8-6, on Saturday. Trailing 6-2 after being held down by starter Cole Irvin, the Rangers took advantage of the A’s struggling bullpen. DJ Peters hit a two-run home run and Yohel Pozo added an RBI double off Sergio Romo before Heim’s homer on an 0-2 pitch from Andrew Chafin (1-3). The ball traveled an estimated 447 feet. "I don’t think I’ve ever hit a ball that far," said Heim, who spent last season in Oakland before being traded to Texas in the offseason as part of a deal that included Elvis Andrus. "As a young team and young guys, it shows you can win a ballgame at any time. It just proves to these guys to stay on course and keep fighting until the last out."

    New York Yankees: 4 Takeaways from the Yankees eighth win in a row William Parlee August 21, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit New York Yankees now just 4 games out The New York Yankees have been playing great ball since the All-Star Break. Since July 17, they have gone 25 and 8 during the period.  The Yankees had won their last seven series culminating with a sweep of the Boston Red Sox when they overtook them for a playoff berth. However, last night the Yankees won their eighth game in a row, and the Tampa Bay Rays lost to the White Sox, moving the Yankees just four games short of a tie in the AL East. “Nasty” Nestor does it again Nasty Nestor was nasty again last night.

    Elliot Page Celebrates the Weekend with a Shirtless Selfie from Set: TGIF Minorities and women are finally getting a seat at the IPO underwriting table © Provided by CBS Sports Philadelphia Phillies pitchers Matt Moore and Héctor Neris combined for seven no-hit innings against the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday, putting them in position to make Major League Baseball history with the eighth no-no of the season. Reds catcher Tyler Stephenson subsequently wrecked their attempt, delivering a solo home run to lead off the eighth inning against Archie Bradley. The modern record for most no-hitters thrown in a single season, then, will remain seven -- a mark reached this year, as well as back in 2015. (It should be noted that seven-inning no-hitters are not included in that figure, as they are not considered by the league to be official.) The only time the league has witnessed eight no-nos in a campaign was back in 1884.  Moore worked the first six innings, striking out eight batters and walking two on 76 pitches. It appeared that he would be lifted for...
    George springer didn’t beat Matt Barnes and with a three-run homer, the Toronto Blue Jays turned the game around for the Boston Red Sox in the bottom of the eighth inning in the second half of the season. 2021 of MLB. Matt Barnes repeated a pitch to George springer and he did not miss it a second time and sent it to the top and depth of the leftfield (left field) with two on bases for the Blue Jays to turn the game to the Red Sox in the bottom of the eighth inning with two outs like that. : The Blue Jays continue to deepen the poor pitching moment of the Red Sox, who are confident and hopeful in the return of Chris Sale.
    It was a tough night at the office for St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Alex Reyes, who gave up three straight walks with the bases loaded in the eighth inning. It seemed like Alex Reyes could not buy a strike on Thursday night. The St. Louis Cardinals reliever threw 21 pitches in the top of the eighth inning against the Atlanta Braves. Only four of them were strikes. To make matters worse, Reyes walked four batters, and in three of those instances, the bases were loaded. In all, Reyes failed to record an out and was charged with two earned runs. Talk about an inopportune time to forget how to find the strike zone.Cardinals developing habit of letting runners walk homeUnfortunately, walking batters with the bases loaded is a bit of a trend for the Cardinals this season. They’ve done it 25 times, which is both a club record and a bad number by any baseball standard. With over 100 games still remaining, who knows how many more walks with bases loaded St. Louis might rack up. #Cardinals have walked...
    More On: new york yankees Yankees star ‘doing a little bit better’ after injury scare Mets, Yankees bullpens equally bad lately Why Yankees will lose to Red Sox again Yankees starter takes first step in rehab from injury BOSTON — After a season filled with too many brutal losses to count, the Yankees put one on the other side of the ledger Saturday, with a 4-3 comeback win over the Red Sox at Fenway Park. After showing no signs of life for seven innings — and four outs away from falling 10 games behind first-place Boston in the AL East — the Yankees pulled themselves off the mat with four runs in the eighth inning. Clinging to a one-run lead, Aroldis Chapman barely held on in the bottom of the ninth. The closer, pitching better of late after a brutal stretch, got through the inning for his 18th save. Chapman threw his first pitch up and in to Alex Verdugo, before getting him on a groundout. After striking out Kevin Plawecki, Chapman went to a full count against pinch-hitter...
    New York Yankees Recap: Yankees come alive in the eighth to win one from the Red Sox William Parlee July 24, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit After losing the first two games of the four-game set against their rival Boston Red Sox, the New York Yankees entered this afternoon’s matchup with a certain urgency to win the game to at least split the series with the Red Sox. The Yankees were 2-11 on the season against the Sox and 9 games back in the AL East. Jameson Taillon took the mound for the Yankees facing the ex-Yankees Nathan Eovaldi. It was a perfect weather day for a ball game at Fenway Park in Boston. To start the game, DJ LeMahieu faced Eovaldi and ground out in the infield. Brett Gardner got a base hit to short, but Gardner runs so face he got the hit. Giancarlo Stanton struck out. Rougie Odor struck out for the final out of the half. Enrique Hernandez led off for...
    DENVER — A Sho-case for Shohei Ohtani became a grand stage for Vladimir Guerrero Jr., too. Ohtani unleashed his 100 mph heat while pitching a perfect inning for the win in becoming baseball’s first two-way All-Star, Guerrero rocked Coors Field with a 468-foot home run and the American League breezed 5-2 Tuesday night for its eighth straight victory. Near and far, the sport’s entire focus was on Ohtani from the very start. Players on both sides climbed to the dugout rails to watch him, and the Japanese sensation went 0 for 2, grounding out twice as the AL’s leadoff man and designated hitter. Jared Walsh, Ohtani’s teammate on the Los Angeles Angels, got a save — with his glove. He made a sliding catch in left field on Kris Bryant’s tricky liner with the bases loaded to end the eighth inning. So even with the teams decked out in new uniforms that social media deemed a strikeout instead of a home run, it was a familiar result. Mike Zunino also connected for the AL as...
    SAN FRANCISCO — First Kevin Gausman lost his no-hitter, then the shutout and eventually the game. Matt Carpenter had the big blow with a two-run triple in the seventh inning against Gausman Monday as the Giants fell 5-3 to the St. Louis Cardinals at Oracle Park. Gausman (8-3) threw 6 1/3 no-hit innings before the Cardinals broke through, and St. Louis got an equally stout performance from starter and winning pitcher Kwang Hyun Kim (3-5). Kim, a left-hander, had little trouble navigating the Giants’ right-handed hitting lineup, giving up just three hits and no runs in seven innings. He threw 89 pitches and struck out two. The Giants didn’t have a runner past first base until Alex Dickerson hit a pinch solo home run (his eighth) against reliever Giovanny Gallegos with two out in the eighth inning. All-Star closer Alex Reyes pitched the ninth in a non-save situation for St. Louis, with the Giants making things interesting by getting a run-scoring single by Donovan Solano and an RBI groundout from Steven Duggar. Reyes, however, struck...
    The Milwaukee Brewers earned their sixth straight win by producing their biggest inning since manager Craig Counsell's playing days. Willy Adames and Keston Hiura each hit a three-run homer during a 10-run outburst in the eighth that lifted the Brewers to a 14-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Monday night. The Brewers hadn't scored that many runs in a single inning since getting 10 in the first in an 11-7 triumph at Washington on April 18, 2010. That particular 10-run outburst included a grand slam from Counsell, who was playing shortstop that day. "I remember it was a long time ago," Counsell quipped. "That was a good day also."

    The Oakland A’s beat the Los Angeles Angels 6-4 on Tuesday night at the Coliseum. Like he does in most starts, Frankie Montas looked unconquerable in the first and second innings firing 99mph fastballs and sinkers. They key to Montas’ success comes when he sustains that dominance a couple times through the opposing order. Montas went beyond the sixth inning for the first time this season, holding the Angels to two earned runs over seven innings. Paired with his fastball, Montas threw his biting splitter 26 times and generated nine whiffs on it and three of his eight strikeouts. Three of those whiffs came back-to-back-to-back against Shohei Ohtani, the final one Ohtani swung at for strike three to leave David Fletcher stranded in the fifth inning. Fletcher had batting in the Angels’ second run. They scored their first in the second inning in a quasi-rally ended by Matt Olson’s difficult 3-4-3 double play. The A’s scored their runs in bunches. In a now signature play, Tony Kemp singled up the middle, Mark Canha doubled him home...

    OAKLAND (AP) — Elvis Andrus hit a winning single in the ninth inning after making pair of fielding gaffes, and the Oakland Athletics beat the Kansas City Royals 4-3 on Friday night.

    The Oakland A’s came out on the short end of a back-and-forth game that ended with a 6-5 Seattle Mariners win on Monday at T-Mobile Park. Tom Murphy hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning to seal the win for the A’s division foe. The A’s put up a fight, though. Down two runs headed into the eighth inning, the A’s strung together some timely hits with a dash of luck to score two runs in the eighth inning. Pinch-hitter Aramis Garcia knocked the two-out single up the middle in the 10th inning to score Matt Olson from second to give the A’s their first and ultimate lead. Mariners starter Logan Gilbert has become a familiar face for the A’s, facing them a second time in a week. The pitcher’s 7.59 ERA was an opportunity for the slumping A’s to break out of a slump that’s plagued the entire team. Though the A’s made plenty of hard contact, they could only manage two runs off him. Chad Pinder was at the center of both. First scoring...

    When the Giants take the field, the only thing more concerning than a big deficit seems to be a big lead. Seriously. Wilmer Flores, Mike Yastrzemski and Mauricio Dubón each hit home runs while starter Logan Webb tossed six shutout innings, but the Giants still played a nail-biter and needed to use their best reliever, Tyler Rogers, to close out a too-close-for-comfort 6-3 win over the Reds. A Giants club that’s lost four games it has led after six innings and is 0-6 in games that have been tied after seven dealt with more bullpen issues on Monday as lefty Jarlín García gave up a run in the seventh before righty Matt Wisler surrendered back-to-back home runs to Tyler Naquin and Eugenio Suárez in the eighth. Flores and Yastrzemski each helped the Giants chase Reds starter Sonny Gray from the game after five innings before Dubón hit a solo home run to push San Francisco ahead 5-0 in the sixth. The lead appeared safe enough for manager Gabe Kapler to use some of his struggling relievers...
