Seung-hwan Oh let two inherited runners score in the eighth inning, as the A’s came back to beat the Cardinals 3-2 last night.
Bartolo Colon nearly doubled his season hit total last night. When you consider that such a feat only required going from three hits to five, this is not as impressive as it sounds. When you consider that it involved Bartolo Colon getting not just one hit, but two, it might actually be more impressive than it sounds.
Chris Sale was peak Chris Sale last night.
Alejandro De Aza homered and drove in five runs Thursday as the Mets beat the Cardinals 10-6.
Dozens of Major League Baseball players have been suspended for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs, but relatively few stars have been caught. Could it be that there should be one more star on this list, but he instead paid his less heralded teammate millions of dollars to take the fall for him?
The Braves are 34 games under .500. Pretty much their only good player is Freddie Freeman. This is more or less by design—Atlanta dumped a bunch of talent so they would be at their worst right before moving into their boondoggle of a new suburban stadium, but they kept Freeman around as a lifeline to their remaining…
Matt Moore, who was traded to the Giants earlier this month from the Tampa Bay Rays, took a no-hit bid as close as he possibly could before it got dashed at the last second. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Corey Seager sent a flare into right field on Moore’s 133rd pitch. It landed squarely between Gorkys…
As eventually doomed runs of Idiots On The Field go, these dudes’ miracle jaunt all the way across the outfield, through stadium security, and into the bleachers was pretty damn spectacular.
Nobody has ever robbed a home run at the Marlins’ stadium, until this evening, when Royals center fielder Jarrod Dyson got all the way up to snatch one away from Christian Yelich.
Are you seated? Are you prepared to hear the rawest, truest sabermetrics take of all time from Blue Jays scout Steve Springer?
In a baffling move, the Los Angeles Dodgers traded away Clayton Kershaw’s personal catcher, A.J. Ellis (as well as a pitching prospect and player to be named later), in exchange for Carlos Ruiz of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Hey, what are you looking at, man?
Strong-as-hell swimming champion Katie Ledecky is from Washington D.C., and the Nationals invited her to come throw the first pitch tonight before their game against the Orioles. She arrived, as well she should, decked out in all five of her recently-acquired Olympic medals. Thankfully, Bryce Harper was kind enough to…
Yu Darvish hit his first career dinger tonight, sending a Tim Adelman pitch over the center field wall in the fifth inning. At the time of the homer, he had more stroked dongs than hits allowed, although the Reds put one on him shortly after.
It feels dumb to praise a team that has the highest payroll in the majors as some kind of underdog that’s bravely overcoming the long odds, but the Los Angeles Dodgers are 70-55, and here we are.
Chris Archer lost twice tonight, first to the Red Sox, then to his sweatshirt.
Billy Hamilton is one of the very best defensive center fielders in baseball, and tonight he went all out to make one of his best catches of the season. He’s really fast, man. Fast enough to get asked jokingly about racing Usain Bolt, and fast enough to chase this Carlos Beltran hit down.
The Little League World Series is good for three things: Feeling good for the happy children who win, feeling bad for the sad children who lose, and the occasional dose of good dadding.
David Price pitched a gem for the Red Sox this evening, striking out eight men and only giving up two hits in eight innings of work. His night would have been a lot less spectacular, had Andrew Benintendi not flown across the outfield to leap up on top of the wall to rob Steven Souza of a dinger.
The San Francisco Chronicle has gotten the full story behind the fight between Oakland A’s teammates Billy Butler and Danny Valencia, which apparently started because Butler ratted out Valencia for wearing the wrong cleats.
