Houston’s homers prevent Oakland sweep, A’s fall one game back

Houston’s homers prevent Oakland sweep, A’s fall one game back

Any time the A’s get to Justin Verlander the slightest bit and don’t come out ahead, it’s a stinging reminder of the 2012-13 postseasons, when Verlander was a constant irritant for Oakland. And the past two times the A’s have faced Houston, they’ve had a chance to sweep the series but both times wound up dropping the game Verlander started, despite some success against their longtime nemesis. Sunday, the Astros just outmuscled Oakland to salvage the final game of the series 9-4, just the second win in nine games for Houston.

Greg Bird belts grand slam, Yankees sweep Blue Jays with 10-2 win

J.A. Happ goes to 4-0 in pinstripes, but Didi Gregorius leaves the game with injury after collision. Maybe all it takes is the Blue Jays coming to town to get the Yankees back on track. The Bombers’ offense exploded with a six-run first, capped off by Greg Bird’s grand slam. J.A. Happ also improved to 4-0 in pinstripes. Add that together and you get New York downing Toronto 10-2 to sweep the series. Rookie southpaw Ryan Borucki made his tenth career start for the Blue Jays today, and the Bombers scored six times before he recorded a single out. Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton drew...

Braves come up short in 4-2 loss to Rockies

Losing streak now at four after Sunday’s loss to the Rockies Anibal Sanchez pitched well but the Atlanta Braves were unable to solve German Marquez in a 4-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies. The Braves suffer a four-game sweep and will now head out on a 7-game road trip. The Braves once again grabbed an early lead as Freddie Freeman doubled off the top of the left centerfield wall for a double and scored two batters later on a single by Johan Camargo. That lead however wouldn’t last long as Trevor Story went down and got a low breaking ball from Sanchez and drove it out to left to lead off...

Mychal Thompson says Klay Thompson will retire as a Warrior

Everyone thinks Klay is a Warriors lifer, but his dad really thinks so. It seems like everyone believes that Klay Thompson will spend his entire career with the Golden State Warriors. But no one seems to believe it quite as strongly as Klay’s father, Mychal Thompson. The elder Thompson, who was a former number one overall pick, won two titles with the Los Angeles Lakers, and currently serves as the voice of the Lakers, has long held a stance that Klay should stay in the Bay Area, rather than test the waters of free agency. But in addition to thinking that’s what Klay should do, Mychal...

Subtitle: Ex-prospect hands rare loss to former teamAs part of the Red Sox’ win-now strategy, the one Dave Dombrowski recently described as “all-in,” they’re inevitably going to lose a good young player who comes back to bite them in the future.They probably didn’t think it would happen this quickly with Jalen Beeks.Beeks, the underwhelming left-hander who was traded from the Red Sox to the Rays for Nathan Eovaldi in July, had an awful spring training with his former team.

Fresh off his ejection, José Ureña silenced the Nats’ bats and benefited from a rare offensive outburst. For the first time in more than four years, the Marlins took the series victory on the road from the division rival Washington Nationals. They made a national embarrassment out of it, too, overwhelming left-hander Gio González, piling on late against the bullpen and silencing the Nats’ bats during Sunday’s 12-1 final. José Ureña: 9.0 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K (108 pitches) Gio González: 4.2 IP, 10 H, 8 ER, 4 BB, 5 K (88 pitches) So many individual achievements for the...
