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

    Aug 13, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Rajai Davis

    Blue Jays 10, Yankees 7: Holy frijole, did you see Rajai Davis’ catch, robbing Casey McGehee of a home run in the seventh? The guy is like 5”9″ and the wall is like ten feet and he went Spud Webb on that bad boy. Or Spiderman. Or something. Just wow. Otherwise, the Jays beat the tar out…

  2. Franklin Gutierrez suffers setback with concussion

    Aug 12, 2012, 7:45 PM EDT

    Mariners center fielder Franklin Gutierrez can’t seem to catch a break. He has appeared in only 13 major-league games this year because of heel and head injuries, and it’s suddenly looking like he won’t make it back from his most recent disabled list stint before the conclusion of the 2012 regular season. According to Geoff…

  3. Mariners end Jered Weaver’s long winning streak

    Aug 12, 2012, 6:50 PM EDT

    Jesus Montero

    Jesus Montero took the normally unbeatable Jered Weaver deep twice Sunday as the Mariners topped the Angels in Anaheim 4-1. Weaver entered the day having won nine straight starts. He was 8-0 with a 0.92 ERA at home this year and 15-1 with a 2.13 ERA overall. His only previous defeat came in Texas back…

  4. Mike Trout robs third home run of the season

    Aug 12, 2012, 10:40 AM EDT

    Angels phenom Mike Trout is an American League MVP candidate primarily because of his gaudy offensive numbers, but he’s also been a standout defensively since his arrival near the end of April. The 21-year-old made another spectacular play on Saturday night in Anaheim, robbing his third home run of the season with a perfectly-timed leap…

  5. Oliver Perez (yes, that Oliver Perez) pitching well for Seattle

    Aug 8, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Mets fans aren’t going to like this very much, but after years of being a horrible pitcher and one season of not even playing in the majors Oliver Perez is thriving as reliever for the Mariners. Perez, who despite seemingly being around forever is still just 30 years old, tossed two scoreless innings last night…

  6. Ichiro’s amazing string of 1-fors continues

    Aug 5, 2012, 4:53 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Ichiro Suzuki played in his 12th game for the Yankees in a 6-2 win over the Mariners on Sunday. Just like in the first 11, he had exactly one hit, no walks and no strikeouts. That makes for a few oddities: – His hitting streak with exactly one hit in each game is the longest…

    Aug 4, 2012, 4:17 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez AP

    After CC Sabathia pitched a complete game against the Mariners last night, Felix Hernandez thoroughly dominated the Yankees this afternoon. King Felix allowed just two hits in a complete game 1-0 victory over the Bombers. He struck out six and walked a pair while throwing just 101 pitches. The Yankees didn’t get a runner in…

    Aug 3, 2012, 11:14 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    CC Sabathia and Russell Martin were paired together tonight for just the third time this season and the first time since April 11. We’ll likely see them work together more often the rest of the way. Sabathia allowed three runs on three hits and a walk in a complete game 6-3 victory over the Mariners…

  9. Mark Teixeira back in Yankees lineup after wrist injury

    Aug 3, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeria pronounced himself ready to go after taking grounders and batting practice prior to Friday’s game and was inserted back into the lineup at first base after a two-game absence.

    It’s been five weeks since Franklin Gutierrez suffered a concussion when an errant pickoff throw hit his head on June 29 and manager Eric Wedge told Greg Johns of MLB.com that the center fielder is “almost out of the woods.” He remains on the disabled list–where he’s unfortunately been for most of the past two…

  11. Padres lose hot-hitting rookie catcher Yasmani Grandal to oblique injury

    Aug 1, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Yasmani Grandal AP

    Rookie catcher Yasmani Grandal has provided a huge spark for the Padres since being called up on June 2, hitting .312 with five homers and a .947 OPS in 24 games, but now he’ll miss at least two weeks with a strained oblique muscle. He’ll be eligible to return from the disabled list in the…

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

    Aug 1, 2012, 6:22 AM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 5, Cubs 0: A rejuvenated A.J. Burnett came into a Wrigley Field with the wind blowing in from center against a Cubs team hours off of a significant selloff and tossed a one-hitter. Oh, and Neil Walker drove in all five Pirates runs. Rays 8, Athletics 0: James Shields pitched a very relieved “oh…

  15. Justin Upton will not be part of any “blockbuster” trade for a pitcher

    Jul 31, 2012, 9:32 AM EDT

    Justin Upton

    Last night Ken Rosenthal reported the potential for a “blockbuster” deal involving the Diamondbacks. That deal, Rosenthal speculated, could involve Justin Upton and could be for a big name pitcher, names currently unknown. The Dbacks may make a blockbuster move, but according to Bob Nightengale, it won’t include Justin Upton: The #Dbacks say that Justin…

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

    Jul 31, 2012, 6:21 AM EDT

    Kendrys Morales, Albert Pujols

    Angels 15, Rangers 8: Kendrys Morales hit homers from each side of the plate in the sixth inning — one of which was a grand slam — and drove in six runs overall as the Angels make mincemeat out of the Rangers. Roy Oswalt got tattooed. Between that, Cliff Lee trade rumors and Roy Halladay‘s…

    Jul 31, 2012, 1:23 AM EDT

    Brandon League

    It was only a matter of when and where for Brandon League, and he was finally sent off Monday night, going to the Dodgers for outfielder Leon Landry and right-hander Logan Bawcom. League saved 37 games in 42 chances for the Mariners last season, but he lost his closer gig in May and was never…

    Jul 31, 2012, 1:19 AM EDT

    Eric Thames

    The Jays’ big position battle this spring was Eric Thames versus Travis Snider for left field. Thames was handed the job, but eventually both ended up back in the minors. Now both are out of the organization entirely, having been traded within a half hour of each other tonight. Thames was sent to Seattle for…

    Jul 31, 2012, 12:56 AM EDT

    Hisashi Iwakuma

    A whirlwind week for Seattle’s Hisashi Iwakuma culminated in far and away the best start of his major league career Monday against the Blue Jays. Iwakuma, just back from Japan after returning home to visit his ailing father, limited the Jays to one run in eight innings and struck out 13 in his second big-league…

  21. Like Ruth before him, Carlos Gomez is revolutionizing the home run

    Jul 30, 2012, 6:50 PM EDT

    Carlos Gomez

    Well, perhaps not the home run itself, but what comes afterwards. On Thursday, Carlos Gomez delivered the second fastest home run trot of the season. On Sunday, he completed the fifth fastest circuit of the bases, according to Wezen-ball.com’s Tater Trot Tracker. In all, Gomez owns four of the six sub-17 second-home run trots this…

    Jul 29, 2012, 4:55 PM EDT

    Brandon League

    To the Giants? ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick reports that the Mariners are close to dealing reliever Brandon League to an undisclosed team that isn’t the Braves or Rangers.

    Jul 27, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Toronto Blue Jays

A night after the A’s slammed the Jays, Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer to lead the charge for Toronto, ending the A’s seven game winning streak. This came after the A’s took a 3-0 lead, so nice moxie by the Blue Jays there. Mets 3, Diamondbacks 1:…
