    The Yankees brought half a team to Houston, but that was enough to get a three-game sweep and conclude the Astros’ historic season with 15 straight losses. They’re the first team since the 1899 Cleveland Spiders to lose their final 15 games. The Astros ended up 51-111. They’re the 12th team since 1900 ever to…

  2. Anibal Sanchez shuts down Marlins, wins AL ERA crown

    Sep 28, 2013, 9:38 PM EST

    Anibal Sanchez

    In what was otherwise a meaningless tuneup for the Tigers, Anibal Sanchez entered Saturday’s start against the Marlins with the slightest of all leads for the AL ERA crown: 2.64 to Bartolo Colon‘s 2.65 mark. The margin is a little wider now: Sanchez threw five scoreless innings and struck out eight in a brisk 66-pitch…

    Despite a valiant effort at a comeback this afternoon, the Athletics lost to the Mariners 7-5. The loss drops them to 95-66 and, with one game remaining, locks up home field advantage throughout the playoffs for the 97-63 Red Sox.

    Jon Morosi of FOX Sports spoke with Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips, mostly about swag. Phillips says that baseball needs more of it, saying, “That’s exactly why African-Americans don’t play baseball. [There’s] no passion in the game. You’ve got to be like a robot. Look at basketball. Look at football. When you make an exciting…

    Sep 26, 2013, 12:48 PM EST

    Hisashi Iwakuma

    Mariners right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma put the finishing touches on a fantastic season last night with eight shutout innings against the Royals, lowering his ERA to 2.66.

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

    Sep 25, 2013, 6:51 AM EST

    Chicago White Sox v Cleveland Indians

    Indians 5, White Sox 4: Unbelievable. Chris Perez blows a save in the top of the ninth and the ancient Jason Giambi picks him and the Indians up in the bottom, smacking a two-run walkoff homer. Still life in that old bat. Still life in the Indians, who remain in wild card position. Rangers 3,…

    This afternoon’s series finale between the Mariners and Angels was delayed for 23 minutes in the third inning due to a swarm of bees in the outfield.

    In the top of the fifth inning this afternoon against the Mariners, Prince Fielder attempted to chase down a foul ball off the bat of catcher Mike Zunino. While he was unable to catch the ball, he didn’t walk away completely empty-handed. The best part about that is that the fan appeared to be completely…

  11. X-rays negative on Jose Iglesias’ hand

    Sep 19, 2013, 6:03 PM EST

    Jose Iglesias Getty

    The Tigers were given quite the scare this afternoon when Jose Iglesias was hit in the left hand by a pitch from Mariners reliever Tom Wilhelmsen in the bottom of the sixth inning, but it sounds like he’s going to be fine. According to Bobby Nightengale and Jason Beck of MLB.com, X-rays came back negative…

    Sep 17, 2013, 6:23 AM EST

    Texas Rangers v Tampa Bay Rays

    Rays 6, Rangers 2: A homer and three RBI for Wil Myers as the Rays send the Rangers spiraling ever further into despair. Because the Indians lost too the Rangers didn’t fall out of the wild card slot, but they did fall out of the top spot, meaning that they’re now closer to falling out…

  19. Derek Jeter is VHS

    Sep 12, 2013, 11:03 AM EST

    jeter rehab getty

    Grant Brisbee pretty ably sums up the future of Derek Jeter at shortstop for the New York Yankees. Specifically, that he has none. That even if he exercises his player option for next year and comes back it’s likely to be as the Yankees DH/utility guy because he’ll be 40 and shortstops just don’t play…

  20. Yankees acquire shortstop Brendan Ryan from Mariners

    Sep 10, 2013, 11:32 PM EST

    brendan ryan getty

    As first reported by MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart, the Yankees have acquired shortstop Brendan Ryan from the Mariners for a player to be named later. If you needed any further indication that Derek Jeter‘s left ankle soreness is a concern, this would be it. Ryan is one of the best defensive shortstops in baseball, but he…

  22. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 10, 2013, 6:58 AM EST

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Dodgers 8, Diamondbacks 1: Three bombs for Juan Uribe and four driven in. What a season for the guy who, in his first two years in Dodger blue, looked lost and, frankly, over. This year he’s hitting .279/.334/.476, is playing excellent defense at third and who has been, by all accounts, a great guy in…

  24. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 6, 2013, 6:30 AM EST

    Chicago White Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles 3, White Sox 1: The Orioles win and, frankly, I’m going to credit playing at home. Yep, nothing like a home game. Makes all the difference. And if you think for a minute I’m irrationally beating this into the ground, go take a gander at the NFL Industrial Complex’s collective and concerted moaning and…

  25. Felix Hernandez’s next start delayed by back issues
