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 […]

Texas Rangers trade Willie Calhoun to San Francisco Giants for Steven Duggar

The San Francisco Giants acquired Willie Calhoun on Thursday, sending outfielder Steven Duggar to Texas for the outfielder who was the main return for the Rangers when they traded pitcher Yu Darvish five years ago. It will be a homecoming for Calhoun, and a move he requested after being sent to the minors on May 1. The 27-year-old was born in the East Bay city of Vallejo and attended Benicia High School. “We wish Willie the best in his opportunity with San Francisco,” Rangers president Jon Daniels said. “It’s a fresh start for him, as well as being close to home.” San Francisco also gets cash in the […]

Gerrit Cole’s longest no-hit bid of MLB career broken up in 8th inning as New York Yankees beat Tampa Bay Rays for 50th win

Gerrit Cole will continue topping the list of best active major league pitchers without a no-hitter after a spectacular seven-inning performance in the New York Yankees’ 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field on Monday night. The triumph put the Yankees a season-high-tying 33 games over .500 at 50-17, matching the historic 1998 club for the third-best 67-game start in franchise history. Cole, trying to become the 13th pitcher to throw a no-hitter in pinstripes, permitted only three baserunners through seven innings before infielder Isaac Paredes’ sharp grounder up the middle in the eighth put an end to the longest no-hit bid of Cole’s […]

Chicago White Sox reinstate Tim Anderson from 10-day injured list, insert him back at top of lineup

Shortstop Tim Anderson was reinstated him from the 10-day injured list Monday prior to the Chicago White Sox opening a home series versus the Toronto Blue Jays. To make room on the roster for Anderson, Chicago placed third baseman Yoan Moncada on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to June 18, with a strained right hamstring. Anderson, who had been on a rehabilitation assignment with Class AAA Charlotte while working his way back from a groin injury, was inserted into his customary leadoff spot for the opener versus the Blue Jays. The 2019 AL batting champ left a victory over the Chicago Cubs late last month, going down in the […]

Ramírez, Guardians win 4th in a row, beat sloppy Rockies 4-2

José Ramírez doubled for his eighth consecutive game with an extra-base hit and the Cleveland Guardians matched a season high with their fourth victory in a row to beating the sloppy Rockies. Ramírez hit an opposite-field grounder that hugged the third-base line against an exaggerated shift in the first inning. He is the first major leaguer with extra-base hits in eight consecutive games since Cincinnati’s Joey Votto in 2020. The Guardians have won 13 of 16. “We come out of here feeling good, but there was some closeness to every game,” Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. “It’s not always perfect, but they keep plugging.

Max Scherzer, Jacob deGrom moving closer to return with New York Mets

Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom are moving closer to a return for the National League East-leading Mets. Scherzer, who injured his left oblique while pitching versus St. Louis on May 18, returned to New York after rehabbing in Florida and threw in the outfield at Citi Field before Tuesday night’s series opener versus Milwaukee. The 37-year-old right-hander, a three-time Cy Young Award winner, is expected to throw a simulated game Thursday. Scherzer stated he’s not ready to put a timetable on when he might return to the active roster. “The way to describe this injury, the rehab of this, half the battle’s getting back […]

Brewers beat Nationals 4-1 to halt 8-game losing streak

Willy Adames homered and drove in three runs, and the Milwaukee Brewers snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 4-1 triumph over the Washington Nationals on Sunday. Milwaukee’s Craig Counsell tied Phil Garner for the most managerial victories in franchise history with 563 as the Brewers snapped their longest skid since September 2015. Washington was denied its first sweep since taking two from Toronto on Aug. 17-18 of last year and its first three-game sweep since June 14-16, 2021 versus Pittsburgh. It was the first time this season the last-place Nationals entered the last game of a series with a chance at a sweep. Adames, […]

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 […]

Miguel Andujar requests trade from New York Yankees following demotion

Miguel Andujar has requested a trade from the New York Yankees after being demoted to the minors, according to multiple reports. Andujar informed Yankees manager Aaron Boone of his wish to be traded Friday after New York optioned the outfielder to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, according to reports. The New York Post reported that Andujar has been seeking a trade since the end of the 2021 season. The Yankees have not confirmed the reports, and Boone would not elaborate on his discussion with Andujar, calling the demotion a result of a “tough numbers game.” Looking for the best online betting site and Live betting?
