    Rangers 11, Angels 10: Holy schnikes! The Angels jumped out to a 6-0 lead and the fans were booing Yu Darvish and the local nine. Then the comeback. Make that the comebacks. Four runs in the fifth and then single runs in the eighth and ninth to force extras. Then, down by three in the…

    Francisco Rodriguez

    Phillies 7, Brewers 6: It’s hard to imagine a more demoralizing series than the one the Brewers just experienced. In all three games they fell victim to last inning rallies. This one after their own rally brought them back from a 5-1 deficit, tied with a Ryan Braun homer in the eighth. Then they take…

  3. Ryan Braun out of Brewers’ lineup today after aggravating season-long groin injury

    Jul 18, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Ryan Braun AP

    Ryan Braun left last night’s game after aggravating a lingering groin injury and as expected he’s not in the Brewers’ lineup for today’s game. Milwaukee has Thursday off, so this gives Braun some extra rest before potentially rejoining the lineup Friday in Cincinnati for what’s the start of 12 games in 12 days. Of course,…

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

    Jul 18, 2012, 6:12 AM EDT

    April

    Angels/Giants 22, Tigers/Braves 0: So, I’m a Braves fan and my girlfriend is a Tigers fans and each of our teams got the crap beat out of them last night. So we agreed that baseball sucks and decided to watch downloaded “Parks and Recreation” episodes instead. Good call, yes? I mean, Mike Trout and Buster…

  5. NL dominates in first All-Star shutout since 1996

    Jul 10, 2012, 11:17 PM EDT

    National League All-Star Cabrera holds out a hand to American League All-Star Cano after hitting a two run home run at the Major League Baseball's All-Star Game in Kansas City

    It was all National League, right from the start. Pablo Sandoval and company jumped on Justin Verlander to take a 5-0 lead in the top of the first and cruised from there on the way to an 8-0 victory for the NL in the 83rd All-Star Game, the third straight win for the Senior Circuit.…

  6. Justin Verlander gets lit up, puts AL All-Stars in 5-0 hole

    Jul 10, 2012, 8:48 PM EDT

    Justin Verlander

    Justin Verlander had made 13 career starts at Kauffman Stadium and never given up more than four runs. Of course, he was facing the Royals in those outings. The NL All-Stars roughed up Verlander in the first inning Tuesday, scoring five runs on four hits and two walks. Ryan Braun started the scoring with an…

  7. Tony La Russa adds Carlos Gonzalez to National League All-Star lineup with voted-in starters

    Jul 9, 2012, 2:04 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Tony La Russa officially named Matt Cain his All-Star starter at this afternoon’s press conference and also unveiled the National League lineup, with Carlos Gonzalez as the designated hitter/leadoff man and the past two MVPs, Ryan Braun and Joey Votto, batting third and fourth: 1. Carlos Gonzalez, DH 2. Melky Cabrera, CF 3. Ryan Braun,…

  8. Giancarlo Stanton to undergo knee surgery, out a month

    Jul 7, 2012, 7:01 PM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton

    Giancarlo Stanton‘s sore right knee failed its test Saturday when he was returned to Miami’s lineup, so he’ll undergo surgery to remove bone chips Sunday or Monday. Manager Ozzie Guillen said he expected Stanton to miss 4-6 weeks, but players have occasionally returned from such surgeries after two or three weeks. The Marlins will have…

  9. 2012 midseason awards: NL MVP

    Jul 7, 2012, 12:50 AM EDT

    Joey Votto

    There’s no doubt who has been the National League’s best hitter to date, what with Joey Votto leading the circuit in both on-base percentage and slugging. As for the best player, that’s still a difficult question. Here’s the top 10 in OPS: 1.082 – Joey Votto (1B Cin): .345/.464/.619, 14 HR, 47 RBI, 4 SB…

  10. Chipper Jones replaces Matt Kemp on NL All-Star team

    Jul 3, 2012, 5:43 PM EDT

    Chipper Jones

    It’s a case of very unusual timing, what with Chipper Jones currently leading the NL Final Vote, but the National League announced Tuesday that Jones would replace the injured Matt Kemp on the All-Star team. The most recent reports had Chipper holding a slim lead in the Final Vote balloting over Cardinals third baseman David…

  11. See the Brewers score two runs in .35 seconds

    Jul 3, 2012, 5:35 PM EDT

    Brewers score twice

    With runners on first and second and one out in the third inning in the game against the Marlins on Tuesday, Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez hit a deep fly to center that got over the head of Justin Ruggiano. It led to this scene. What happened was that Norichika Aoki, who was on second,…

  12. Matt Kemp picks his Home Run Derby squad

    Jul 1, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Squad captain Matt Kemp announced Sunday that he’s chosen the Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez, the Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton and the Cardinals’ Carlos Beltran to participate alongside himself in the Home Run Derby. Kemp plans to take part in the contest, even though he’s still expected to be on the disabled list as he continues his recovery…

    mlb all-star patch

    Major League Baseball is announcing the All-Star rosters for each league this afternoon during an hour-long special on TBS.

  14. Where did all of the doubles go?

    Jun 28, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Does this look like a doubles swing to you?

    It’s still early enough to turn around, but there are a lot of hitters this year with many more homers than doubles: Jose Bautista – 25 HR, 9 2B Adam Dunn – 24 HR, 10 2B Curtis Granderson – 21 HR, 9 2B Carlos Beltran – 20 HR, 9 2B Dayan Viciedo – 13 HR,…

  15. Matt Kemp won’t pick Bryce Harper for Home Run Derby

    Jun 27, 2012, 11:50 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    MLB decided a year ago to spice things up a bit by letting a captain pick his roster for the Home Run Derby. It added to the fun the first time it was tried. Things might be starting to get interesting this time around, too. Despite popular demand, Matt Kemp told USATODAY that 19-year-old Bryce…

  16. Bronson Arroyo loses no-hitter vs. Brewers in eighth inning

    Jun 26, 2012, 9:01 PM EDT

    arroyo getty

    We have an official no-hitter alert in Cincinnati. Reds right-hander Bronson Arroyo, who entered the night with a pedestrian 4.19 ERA, has tossed seven innings against the Brewers without allowing a hit. He’s fanned three and issued zero walks, and the only thing keeping him from being on perfect game watch was a hit-by-pitch of…

  17. The final NL All-Star balloting update before the teams are set

    Jun 26, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    All Star Game Logo

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the NL All-Star team would look like so. Changes to possible starters: Ryan Braun pulled ahead of Melky Cabrera for the third outfield slot, reversing last week’s reversal. Otherwise, the same old same old, with the changes only affecting downballot stuff: CATCHER Buster Posey, Giants:…

  18. Ryan Braun takes over NL home run lead

    Jun 20, 2012, 6:07 PM EDT

    Ryan Braun, George Kottaras

    Ryan Braun has, temporarily at least, lost his hold on a starting spot for the National League All-Star team. He does, however, possess the league lead in homers after hitting his 20th today. He overtook Carlos Beltran, who has been stuck on 19 for a week now. Braun went 3-for-4 in leading the Brewers to…

  19. NL All-Star balloting update: Melky in, Braun out

    Jun 19, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Bochy's Angels?

    Just like in Monday’s AL balloting update, one spot in the National League projected All-Star lineup changed hands this week. Melky Cabrera moved ahead of Ryan Braun into third place in the outfield. Cabrera is deserving based on his performance this season, but one can’t help but notice that Giants fans have been awfully generous…

  20. This week’s NL All-Star voting update

    Jun 12, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    All Star Game Logo

    Biggest move: at catcher, where Buster Posey has passed Yadier Molina.  The results: Catcher Buster Posey: 1,713,839 Yadier Molina: 1,576,199 First Base Joey Votto: 2,108,725 Lance Berkman:851,373 Second Base Dan Uggla: 1,341,088 Brandon Phillips:885,250 Third Base David Wright: 1,358,992 Pablo Sandoval:1,103,650 Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki:1,200,256 Rafael Furcal: 1,183,096 Outfield Matt Kemp: 2,589,464 Carlos Beltran: 1,782,831 Ryan…

  21. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 11, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Torii Hunter, Mark Trumbo

    Angels 10, Rockies 8: Mark Trumbo hit two three-run homers to help the Angels complete what was nothing short of an annihilation of the Rockies’ pitching staff. Trumbo is at .326/.380/.632. It would have been optimistic to predict those numbers from Pujols before the season started. Nationals 4, Red Sox 3: Bryce Harper had the…

  22. Norichika Aoki proves to be a big find for the Brewers

    Jun 7, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Norichika Aoki

    Norichika Aoki‘s third big-league homer — coming six innings after his second — was a walkoff blast in the bottom of the 10th inning Thursday, giving the Brewers a 4-3 victory over the Cubs. Aoki ended up with his second straight three-hit game today, making this something of a coming out party against the Cubs.…

  23. Aramis Ramirez sits out fifth straight game with quad strain

    Jun 7, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    aramis ramirez ap

    Aramis Ramirez went through pregame drills today in the hopes of returning to the Brewers’ lineup, but instead he’ll sit out a fifth consecutive game with a strained quadriceps muscle. Cody Ransom is starting at third base in Ramirez’s absence and manager Ron Roenicke has juggled the batting order to get Corey Hart into the…

  24. The Ryan Braun Rules are in effect! MLB, MLBPA Announce modifications to joint drug agreement

    Jun 7, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    ryan braun wide getty

    In the recently-completed Collective Bargaining Agreement, the league and the union agreed to make several modifications to the Joint Drug Agreement which governs drug testing, suspensions and whatnot in baseball.  They just announced that they have reached agreement on the modifications. They’re all listed below. The ones that seem notable or major to me in…

  25. You asked me questions on Twitter. So I shall answer them.

    Jun 7, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    The Question

    We did the Twitter questions thing again last night. Let’s go: Q: How do the Braves end up as “your” team if you grew up in WV, TBS? Yep. That and an electric attraction to Andres Thomas. Q: Will Ryan Braun be elected to start the All-Star Game even with the PED cloud over his head? He’s…
