  1. No homers, no problem for Chris Davis

    Oct 9, 2012, 12:59 AM EDT

    Chris Davis

    When he’s not winning games as a reliever, Chris Davis is pretty much known as a home run guy. He hit three of them in a win over Toronto on Aug. 24, and he homered in six games in a row coming down the stretch, helping the Orioles lock up a wild card bid in…

  2. The Yankees gotta get Alex Rodriguez out of the three hole

    Oct 9, 2012, 12:28 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    I’m not going to go all “blame A-Rod” here. The fact is that baseball’s active home run leader wasn’t half bad on Monday night. He lined into a double play in his first at-bat, but that as just bad luck: the ball was scalded. He had a clean single his second time up. Of course,…

  3. Jim Johnson bounces back as Orioles even ALDS with Yankees

    Jim Johnson took the loss in Game 1 of the ALDS against the Yankees last night by giving up five runs (four earned) in the ninth inning while retiring just one batter. But he redeemed himself tonight. Johnson, who led the majors with 51 saves during the regular season, pitched a perfect ninth inning for…

  4. Derek Jeter drives in run to cut into Orioles lead

    UPDATE: The Orioles got out of it. Darren O’Day struck out Alex Rodriguez swinging for the second out before Buck Showalter made another change, this time bringing in Brian Matusz. The southpaw issued an intentional walk to Robinson Cano before getting Nick Swisher to fly out to left field to end the inning. The Orioles…

  5. Jaime Garcia to be removed from NLDS roster due to shoulder injury

    Oct 8, 2012, 10:10 PM EDT

    Jaime Garcia Getty

    UPDATE: According to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Garcia will be removed from the NLDS roster due to his shoulder injury. The Cardinals can replace Garcia on the roster, but this makes him ineligible to pitch if the club advances to the NLCS. Of course, depending upon the severity of the injury, it’s…

  6. Chris Davis puts the Orioles in front of the Yankees with a two-run single

    The Orioles have taken the lead over the Yankees in Baltimore. Chris Davis just knocked in two runs with a bases-loaded single off Andy Pettitte in the bottom of the third inning to put the Orioles on the board and give them a 2-1 lead. Adam Jones followed Davis’ hit with a bleeder that went…

  7. Jon Jay made a pretty incredible leaping catch today

    Getty Jon Jay

    The Cardinals ended up blowing out the Nationals 12-4 in Game 2 of the NLDS in St. Louis today, but Jon Jay‘s leaping catch in the top of the sixth inning came at a point where the game was far from decided. Heck, even without context, it was a pretty fantastic catch. Only a few…

  8. Jordan Zimmermann has no answer for Cardinals’ onslaught

    Oct 8, 2012, 9:31 PM EDT

    Jordan Zimmermann

    Jordan Zimmermann spent some time as the NL ERA leader this season, and while he did have  a hiccup in August, he bounced back to go 3-0 with a 2.61 ERA in his final five starts of the season. Overall, he was 12-8 with a 2.94 ERA that ranked seventh in the league. Which is…

  9. Yankees take early lead thanks to some fancy footwork by Ichiro

    Oct 8, 2012, 9:10 PM EDT

    Ichiro Suzuki

    They’ll call it “The Ichiro Shuffle.” The Yankees struck first tonight in Game 2 of the ALDS against the Orioles. Derek Jeter led off the game with a single and Ichiro Suzuki reached on an error before Robert Andino made an excellent diving catch off a hard-hit ball of the bat of Alex Rodriguez. Andino…

  10. Mike Matheny’s quick hook pays off as Cardinals even NLDS with Nationals

    Oct 8, 2012, 8:29 PM EDT

    Mike Matheny Getty

    UPDATE: Well, this adds a new wrinkle to Matheny’s decision. According to Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Jaime Garcia was pulled from the game because he aggravated a previous shoulder injury. He has been sent for an MRI. 8:13 PM: After being outmaneuvered by Davey Johnson in the Cardinals’ Game 1 loss to…

    Another day, another rain delay. The start of Game 2 of the ALDS between the Yankees and Orioles is being delayed due to rain in the Baltimore area. It shouldn’t be as long as what we had to sit through last night, though. According to Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com, first pitch is expected to be…

  12. Cardinals cash in on early opportunities against Nationals, grab 7-1 lead

    Oct 8, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Daniel Descalso Getty

    The Cardinals had all sorts of opportunities in Game 1 of the NLDS against the Nationals yesterday, but they collected just three hits and went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position. They aren’t wasting those chances today. The Cardinals got to Jordan Zimmermann early and currently lead the Nationals 7-1 through four innings in St.…

  13. Giants announce that Barry Zito will start Game 4

    Oct 8, 2012, 6:23 PM EDT

    Barry Zito

    Rather than go back to their ace on short rest, the Giants plan to start Barry Zito against the Reds if they extend the NLDS to four games, manager Bruce Bochy announced Monday. The Giants picked Zito over Matt Cain even though it would be a do-or-die situation. Down 2-0 in the best-of-five series, they…

  14. Mike Lowell says he isn’t ready to manage

    Mike Lowell

    Former All-Star third baseman Mike Lowell has been linked to the possible managerial vacancy in Miami and has also gotten some mentions as an option for Boston, but he told CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman that he’s not ready for such a gig. “It’s not for me right now,” he said. Two years into retirement, the 38-year-old…

  15. Jim Leyland wants to return in 2013, likely will

    Oct 8, 2012, 5:33 PM EDT

    Jim Leyland

    Jim Leyland is in the final year of his contract, and as the Tigers struggled through much of the season, there was speculation that he may not be back in the dugout next year.  Danny Knobler from CBS Sports.com reports, however, that the seemingly ALCS-bound Tigers are likely to have Leyland back in 2013: Jim…

  16. Yankees designate Cory Wade for assignment

    Oct 8, 2012, 5:20 PM EDT

    New York Yankees Joe Girardi removes Cory Wade in MLB game with Chicago White Sox in New York

    Last season Cory Wade had a 30/8 K/BB ratio and allowed five homers in 39 innings for the Yankees. This season Wade had a 38/8 K/BB ratio and allowed eight homers in 39 innings for the Yankees. Unfortunately for the 31-year-old reliever his ERA jumped from 2.04 to 6.46, thanks largely to his batting average…

    Harper eye black

    It’s really sunny in St. Louis today. Like, blindingly so. But don’t worry, folks, because Bryce Harper‘s got his: That’s gotta be the second most offensive eyeblack of the season. And even Yunel Escobar is probably watching this on TV and saying “damn.” We laugh, but when he’s the only one who isn’t blinded by…

    Brett Anderson Getty

    As soon as Oakland included Brett Anderson on the ALDS roster despite not pitching since injuring his oblique on September 19 it was clear they planned for him to start a game against Detroit and sure enough he’ll get the call for Game 3 tomorrow night. And if the A’s are able to extend the…
