    I don’t believe in destiny. I don’t believe in fate. I’m even pretty skeptical about momentum and the hot hand. But these Royals are testing my beliefs.

    Red Sox closer Koji Uehara has been human of late, blowing back-to-back saves and allowing a total of seven runs in his previous four appearances, which has people wondering if the 39-year-old right-hander might be wearing down.

    Oscar Taveras is playing and playing well lately, easing Cardinals fans’ concerns about manager Mike Matheny frequently benching the 22-year-old rookie for lesser talents, and now Matheny is full of praise for the work Taveras has put in to get better.

    The Yankees are, in my view anyway, unlikely to make the playoffs. Yet they refuse, Rasputin-like, to die.

    The A’s and Angels are tied again at the very top of the American League West standings. Jon Lester struck out seven and allowed just one run on five hits and a walk, and Coco Crisp scored the go-ahead run on an eighth-inning wild pitch as Oakland topped the visiting Halos 2-1 on Saturday.

    The Red Sox paid a lot of money to get this guy. Expect him in the Sox’ outfield early next season.

    He hit a combined .312 with an .863 OPS in 328 games for the Cardinals from 2011 to 2013, but Craig’s production has plummeted to a .237 batting average and .639 OPS in 98 total games this season.

    The Angels just got dealt a potentially-major blow. Garrett Richards — who has suddenly developed into an ace this season at age 26 — was taken off on a stretcher Wednesday evening at Boston’s Fenway Park after suffering what looked to be a very serious right knee injury in the bottom of the second inning of his start against the host Red Sox.

  16. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 20, 2014, 6:54 AM EDT

    Bases loaded walk

    A bases-loaded walk helped the Tigers win a game. A walkoff plunking gave the Cardinals the win. And the crew in Chicago couldn’t get a tarp on the field. Can anyone around here play this game anymore?

  17. Yoenis Cespedes to the Oakland A’s: “I hope you win it all”
