Brandon Ingram says he’ll be OK after jamming fingers in New Orleans Pelicans’ Game 5 loss to Phoenix Suns

New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram came to Tuesday night’s postgame news conference with his right ring and pinkie fingers taped up in black athletic tape, but he insisted he’ll be good to go for Game 6 on Thursday. “It’s fine,” Ingram stated following the Pelicans’ 112-97 loss to the Phoenix Suns. “It got a little banged up during the game, but I’ll be all right.” With 4:07 left, Ingram drove baseline and was met at the rim by Suns center Deandre Ayton. Ingram crashed to the floor and landed on his backside but also jammed his two fingers in the process. On the ensuing […]

Atlanta Braves OF Eddie Rosario expected out 8-12 weeks to correct vision issues

The Atlanta Braves placed slumping outfielder Eddie Rosario on the 10-day injured list with blurred vision and swelling in his right eye and anticipate him to miss eight to 12 weeks. The Braves made the move before Tuesday’s game versus the Chicago Cubs. Right-hander William Woods was recalled to take Rosario’s spot, giving the Braves 16 pitchers on their 28-man roster. A star of the 2021 postseason, when he was the MVP of the National League Championship Series and helped the Braves win their first World Series title in 26 years, Rosario was off to a miserable start with just three hits in his first 44 […]

Padres win 3-2 in 10 to end 10-game losing streak to Dodgers

Austin Nola hit a sacrifice fly with one out in the 10th inning for the San Diego Padres, who won 3-2 on Saturday night to snap a 10-game losing streak to the rival Los Angeles Dodgers. Nola’s sac fly scored rookie CJ Abrams, who started as the automatic runner at second base and advanced on Trent Grisham’s sacrifice bunt. Justin Bruihl (0-1) took the loss. The Padres had been outscored 57-23 during the losing streak to the Dodgers, which dated to Aug. 24. Losing three consecutive series to Los Angeles late last season helped contribute to the Padres’ stunning collapse, which left them with a losing […]

Royals bullpen backs up Daniel Lynch in 2-0 win over Twins

Daniel Lynch was pitching so well into the sixth inning Wednesday night that Royals manager Mike Matheny would’ve left him in the game versus Minnesota had the Kansas City offense provided a little more support. Two runs turned out to be plenty for Matheny’s bullpen, though. Four relievers followed Lynch, each delivering a shutout frame, and the Royals held on for a 2-0 triumph over the Twins on a dreary night at Kauffman Stadium that saw fewer than 9,000 fans walk through the gates. “Just that great mix of pitching, bullpen and defense is everything you could want,” Matheny said. Lynch […]

Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout day-to-day after pitch injures left hand

Mike Trout left the Los Angeles Angels’ 8-3 win over the Texas Rangers on Sunday after being hit in his left hand by a pitch, but the team said X-rays were negative, and the three-time American League MVP is day-to-day. Trout was struck by a 1-1 slider from Rangers right-hander Spencer Patton leading off the fifth inning. Trout said he had difficultly picking up the 81 mph pitch in the shadows on a day when Globe Life Field’s roof was open and that he lowered his hands to protect his midsection. “Like a normal day, I probably just turn like this [pivoting his left shoulder inward] and just […]
