Jiménez hits 3-run HR, rallies White Sox past Royals 5-3

Eloy Jiménez logged his first big hit of the season, launching a go-ahead, three-run homer in the eighth inning that sent the Chicago White Sox over the Kansas City Royals 5-3 Tuesday night. The 24-year-old slugger, who was the 2019 AL Rookie of the Year and then kept up his power surge during the pandemic-shortened season, tore a pectoral muscle in spring training. He hadn’t played in the majors until going 0 for 4 Monday night. But Jiménez quickly made up for lost time in his second match. After hitting a single in his first at-bat, he came up in the eighth after a […]

Kim earns 5th straight win on birthday, Cards beat Cubs 3-2

Kwang Hyun-Kim earned his fifth consecutive win on his 34th birthday and the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Chicago Cubs 3-2 Thursday night. Nolan Arenado and Dylan Carlson homered as the Cardinals improved to a game over .500 at 49-48. It’s the Cardinals first winning record since being 36-35 after winning the first game of a doubleheader at Atlanta on June 20. “I don’t think that the goal here is just to finish over .500.” Arenado said. “We’re looking at way more important things, and we’ve just got to continue to compete. We should finish over .500, but we want to get into the playoffs. “This series, […]

Arizona Diamondbacks’ 24-game road losing skid finally ends with rout of Padres

It had been 62 days and 24 road matches since the Arizona Diamondbacks shook hands on an opponent’s field after a triumph. “You can’t imagine how good it feels,” manager Torey Lovullo said after the Diamondbacks snapped their MLB-record, 24-game road losing streak by routing the San Diego Padres 10-1 on Saturday night. Merrill Kelly threw six strong scoreless innings, and Eduardo Escobar had four hits and five RBIs. Escobar and Christian Walker homered for the Diamondbacks, who hadn’t won away from Chase Field since April 25, when Madison Bumgarner pitched seven no-hit innings at Atlanta. “I’m proud of these guys,” Lovullo said. “We played a real good baseball game today, […]

Judge, Sánchez drive Yanks to blowout win over Royals

Yankees hitters have clawed out of an early season slump with a string of clutch, late-game hits. The Bronx Bombers needed no such fireworks in this one — a start-to-finish shellacking that’s inspiring confidence ahead of a weekend series in Boston. “It’s good to see these guys starting to get a little bit of that swagger,” manager Aaron Boone said. Aaron Judge homered for the first of his three hits, Gary Sánchez connected for the second consecutive game and New York got its first blowout triumph in a month, defeating the Kansas City Royals 8-1 Thursday. Judge got the Yankees started with a solo […]

It was the first match for the White Sox since they placed second baseman Nick Madrigal on the injured list with a torn right hamstring.
