  • Mariners fail in clutch, fall to Orioles 5-4

    BALTIMORE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners spent nearly six hours trying to get a win that ultimately eluded their grasp for a variety of reasons, not the least of which was an ejection that infuriated manager Lloyd McClendon. Seattle rallied from a four-run deficit before the Baltimore Orioles got a tiebreaking RBI single from J.J. Hardy in the...

  • Garcia goes 7 in return, but Cardinals lose 5-0 to Mets

    NEW YORK (AP) — Back on a major league mound for the first time in 11 months, Jaime Garcia gave the St. Louis Cardinals good reason to believe he can help.

  • Organization's best defensive infielder, Yadiel Rivera, fitting in nicely with Sky Sox

    It didn't take Colorado Springs shortstop Yadiel Rivera long to demonstrate why he is rated as the best defensive infielder in the Brewers' organization.

  • Kennedy falters in Padres' 10-5 loss to Nationals

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — Ian Kennedy was close to perfect through four innings, holding the Washington Nationals without a hit and getting a double play to erase the only baserunner.

    The Sky Sox sent 3,501 fans home happy after a 7-6 walk-off win over the Express in game two of Sunday's doubleheader at Security Service Field.

  • Phillies beat D-backs 6-0 for 5-game winning streak

  • Squandered chances end Pine Creek's season at 5A baseball tournament

    DENVER - Pine Creek left 16 runners on base over two games and lost both by one run. That's a painful way to make an early exit to the 5A state tournament.

Two hits weren't enough to satisfy Marlins owner Jeffrey...

  • Angels' winning streak ends with 3-0 loss to Orioles
