Giménez homer in 9th gives Guardians 5-3 win over Twins

Andrés Giménez watched his home run clear the center-field fence, kissed his bat and then flipped it while turning toward Minnesota’s stunned dugout. For the second day in a row, the Cleveland Guardians won a match they probably should have lost and handed the Twins another crushing defeat. Giménez blasted a two-run homer in the ninth inning as the Guardians walked off versus the Twins again, beating their AL Central rivals 5-3 on Thursday to take the five-game series and move within one game of first place. When he crossed the plate, Giménez was splashed with water and bubble gum rained down […]

Yankees’ Judge walks off Astros for 2nd time in 4 days

Aaron Judge drove a three-run homer in the 10th inning for his second walk-off hit versus the Astros in four days, and the New York Yankees recovered after nearly being no-hit for the second consecutive game to defeat Houston 6-3 for a four-game split between the AL’s top teams. Giancarlo Stanton ended a historic hitless drought for New York with a one-out homer in the seventh inning, and DJ LeMahieu followed with a tying two-run drive in the eighth. After Michael King stranded the bases loaded in the 10th, Isiah Kiner-Falefa dropped a two-strike bunt that moved automatic runner Aaron Hicks to third. Right-hander Seth Martinez intentionally walked pinch-hitter Matt Carpenter and struck out LeMahieu, setting […]

Minnesota Twins reinstate Carlos Correa from COVID-19 IL

The Minnesota Twins reinstated shortstop Carlos Correa from the COVID-19 injured list before their game versus the New York Yankees on Wednesday night, a small but significant step toward restoring their depleted roster to full strength. The AL Central-leading Twins conducted a soft launch, with Correa in the lineup as the designated hitter to face surging Yankees left-hander Nestor Cortes. “We do really miss him when he’s not here, the baseball discussions, the way he watches the game, all of those things,” manager Rocco Baldelli stated. Correa missed eight matches after testing positive while the team was in Detroit. He said his symptoms were strong, from headaches to chills […]

Los Angeles Angels rookie Reid Detmers throws no-hitter against Tampa Bay Rays

Los Angeles Angels rookie left-hander Reid Detmers pitched a no-hitter in a 12-0 triumph over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night at Angel Stadium, becoming at age 22 the youngest pitcher to throw one since Anibal Sanchez in 2006 for the Marlins. It was the majors’ second no-hitter this season, and the 12th in franchise history. “I just blacked out,” Detmers said. “I don’t know.” The closest play to a hit came with one out in the top of the seventh inning when Tampa Bay’s Brett Phillips hit a medium-hard grounder to the right of first baseman Jared Walsh. The ball bounced off Walsh’s glove and then he dropped the […]

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 […]

It’s been a wonderful ride but I am unbelievably excited for the next chapter of my life,” the statement says. The 34-year-old Seager became a free agent after the season when Seattle opted not to exercise a club option on his contract. Rather than test the open […]
