    Jesús Luzardo’s first career Major League postseason start didn’t last long. Luzardo, 22, struck out five through three innings but also allowed a solo home run to Adam Engel in the second inning and a two-run shot to José Abreu in the third as the A’s fell behind 3-0. Both home runs came on fastballs over the heart of the plate. In the third with Tim Anderson on second base with two outs, Luzardo fell behind 2-0 to Abreu. Instead of walking Abreu, an American League MVP candidate, with forst base open, the A’s continued to pitch to him, and Luzardo’s 96 mph four-seamer was driven over the left field wall. Luzardo struck out James McCann...

At home, the Cubs are averaging 3.6 runs per games, the second-fewest in the league, while on the...
    For the first five innings of Tuesday’s game in St. Louis, Twins starting pitcher Jose Berrios was nearly unhittable. Berrios was sharp, giving up just a pair of hits while striking out eight, including a dominant fourth inning when he induced three swinging strikeouts against the heart of the Cardinals’ order. Though Berrios ultimately ran into trouble in the sixth inning, spelling the end of his day, his strong effort and three home runs helped propel the Twins to a 7-3 victory over the Cardinals in the first game of the Twins’ doubleheader at Busch Stadium. Berrios, though he got ahead of the first two hitters he saw in the sixth, allowed a walk to Kolten Wong and a two-run...

    Following an uncharacteristically quiet trade deadline for the San Francisco Giants, manager Gabe Kapler said he considered the organization’s lack of activity an “endorsement” of the 2020 club’s playoff chances. “It hasn’t been perfect,” Kapler said pregame. “Everybody knows that we’ve had some missteps along the way. But I think in general it’s an endorsement, and I’m glad to be here with this group today.” If the first 36 games weren’t perfect, Tuesday’s 23-5 win over the Colorado Rockies was as close as it gets. The Giants’ 23 runs were the most since the club scored as many against the Braves at Fulton County Stadium on June 8, 1990. Related Articles SF Giants bring newly acquired utility player onto...

    The Rays may add power to the lineup with Joey Gallo. The Tampa Bay Rays picked up yet another victory Sunday to improve to 24-11 on the season. That has the team atop the American League East and in a prime spot to fight with the New York Yankees for that division crown. But the Rays know a hot start doesn’t define a season, even a shortened one, so the organization is looking to improve before the trade deadline. Rumors have the Rays linked to several players, including a slugger currently with the Texas Rangers. Gallo would fit for Rays financially, at least for this season.

    The pounding Masahiro Tanaka absorbed was fading into the comfortable air above Yankee Stadium on Tuesday evening and providing hope that a lineup without Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and DJ LeMahieu could steal a win.

And when Gio Urshela stranded three with a routine ground ball to third, the threat was dead. Yes, the...

By the time Maeda had allowed a Milwaukee base runner with two outs into the fourth inning, the Twins had already scored seven times. It was just the type of bounce-back win the Twins (12-7)...

    NEW YORK (AP) — This was not what Gerrit Cole had in mind for his debut in pinstripes, and yet it was. Cole won his home debut for the New York Yankees, extending his regular-season streak of victories to 19 with a 6-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night. New York improved to 8-1 for the third time after 1988 and 2003. The major league-best Yankees have won seven straight — the equivalent of a 19-game spurt over a 162-game season. Cole (3-0) allowed six hits, struck out four and walked one on 91 pitches, leaving after a 1-hour, 7-minute rain delay ahead of the seventh. His grunts could be heard in empty Yankee Stadium as easily as...
    Cleveland’s starting rotation is rolling through the early stages of the season. The Houston Astros, on the other hand, are having to make do with a group that bears little resemblance to the one that pitched its way to the World Series last year. Someone forgot to tell the Indians that starting pitchers might struggle early in this abbreviated campaign. The short training camp doesn’t seem to have affected this Cleveland rotation. In 10 games, the Indians’ starters have struck out 86 batters with only nine walks, going 5-3 with a 2.57 ERA. Cleveland had a streak of seven straight starts by pitchers who went at least six innings with two runs or fewer. That was snapped Friday, but Shane...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Aaron Judge homered for the fifth consecutive game Sunday night, becoming the first New York Yankees player in 13 years to accomplish the feat. The big slugger connected off left-handed reliever Matt Hall in the second inning, sending a three-run drive off the facing of the second deck in left field at Yankee Stadium to give New York a 3-2 lead over the Boston Red Sox. The previous Yankees hitter to go deep in five straight games was Álex Rodríguez in September 2007.

    There may not be fans at Yankee Stadium to rise, but that won’t stop Aaron Judge from hitting home runs. On Sunday against the Red Sox, the Yankees’ star right fielder hit a home run in his fifth consecutive game, extending his career-high stretch and giving him five home runs through eight games. Judge’s 419-foot blast brought him within three games of the MLB record, held by franchise great Don Mattingly (10 home runs in eight games in 1987) and former Pirates first baseman Dale Long (eight home runs in eight games in 1956). Alex Rodriguez was the last Yankee to hit five home runs in five games, back in 2007. The Yankees, who hit a home run in...

    No one is pulling harder for Major League Baseball to finish this abbreviated season than Minnesota Twins fans. It’s hard to blame them; that lineup is as potent as ever.

Ryan Braun’s two-out, two-run double off Kyle Crick drew Milwaukee even. Sogard led off the 11th with a liner down the left-field line, allowing Holt to score easily from second as the automatic runner. Colin Moran hit two home runs for the Pirates.

    CHICAGO (AP) — Leury García homered from both sides of the plate, helping Dallas Keuchel and the Chicago White Sox pound the Minnesota Twins 10-3 on Saturday. Edwin Encarnación hit a two-run drive as the White Sox bounced back nicely after losing 10-5 to the reigning AL Central champions on Friday night. Eloy Jiménez and James McCann also went deep on the second day of the pandemic-delayed 60-game season.

    HOUSTON, TEXAS - JULY 18: Jose Altuve #27 of the Houston Astros(Photo by Bob Levey/Getty Images) Jose Altuve might have injured himself via an awkward fall. Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve illustrates perfectly how things can change over the course of a few months. Altuve went from being hailed as the clutch leader of the American League champions following his ALCS-winning home run to a national pariah due to his involvement in Houston’s sign-stealing scandal. He might need to wait a little longer before he returns to the diamond and starts mashing home runs again due to a freak accident during a scrimmage. During a scrimmage against the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday, Altuve stumbled after crossing home plate,...

    Credit: Jennifer Stewart/Getty Images Manny Machado had a pretty disappointing first season with the Padres, but will be enjoy a bounce back this year? After lingering available alongside Bryce Harper, Manny Machado signed a 10-year deal with the San Diego Padres prior to the 2019 season. It was easy to see a drop-off with a move to a more pitcher-friendly home park, and naturally Machado’s OPS fell more than 100 point (.796, from .905 in 2018). However, Machado hit 32 home runs last year as he topped 30 homers for the fifth straight season. His 85 RBI and 81 runs scored weren’t too bad as well. But the eye sores, a .256 batting average, 24 double plays grounded into, striking...

"I had never done running in my entire life," Mohammed tells CNN Sport. "I just came to Israel and one of my best friends told me: 'You can run after the ball for three or four hours -- I think you better start running with this Alley Running team.'"This was in 2014, but Mohammed's endurance had already been tested four years earlier when he left the Sudanese province of Darfur and embarked on a journey that would require an arduous, three-day crossing of Egypt's Sinai Desert by foot.Violence and conflict had been the backdrop of Mohammed's early...
    New York City has been a baseball town since the 19th century. That span has seen countless memorable moments, the majority of which revolve around the longball. Legendary home runs have defined the sport in the city since even before Babe Ruth exploded the dead ball era with his power, and the great roar that accompanied blasts hit by the home teams has provided the Gotham soundtrack. For the moment, that particular music has gone quiet. So let’s take a moment to remember the greatest home runs ever hit by New York players, from the Yanks and Mets to the bygone teams still held dear in the city that never stops loving baseball. 50.
