  • Mets win 11th straight to tie team record, 6-3 over Braves

    NEW YORK (AP) — With a perfect ride through their first homestand, the surprising New York Mets matched the best start in team history.

  • Rodriguez exceeds expectations, helps Yankees stay relevant

    DETROIT (AP) — The New York Yankees missed the playoffs the last two years while saying goodbye to a pair of greats. Mediocrity — or, worse yet, irrelevance — was a very real possibility heading into 2015. Of all people, it's Alex Rodriguez who might keep this team from becoming an afterthought. Rodriguez is back from a season-long drug...

  • Close game gets away from Colorado Springs Sky Sox in 7th

    Colorado Springs made a game of it for a while but a five-run seventh put away an 8-2 victory for host Round Rock on Tuesday.

  • Reds manager Bryan Price goes on profanity-filled rant

    MILWAUKEE (AP) — Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price went on a profanity-filled rant during his pregame meeting with media Monday, taking exception with the way his team was being covered.

  • Chen's wildness, Orioles' errors lead to 7-1 loss to Red Sox

    BOSTON (AP) — Wei-Yin Chen's start was drastically different from his previous one in Fenway Park. Chen (0-1) walked five, gave up five unearned runs and even bobbled a grounder for an error in Baltimore's rain-shortened 7-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox in Monday's annual Patriots' Day game. "I didn't really allow a lot of hard hits balls out...

  • Red Sox get 5 unearned runs in 7-1 win over Orioles

    BOSTON (AP) — The way Justin Masterson was pitching, he didn't need much help. The Orioles gave it to him, anyway. On a rainy, chilly Patriots' Day holiday, Baltimore made three errors that led to five unearned runs, Wei-Yin Chen struggled with his control and the Boston Red Sox won 7-1 Monday in a game shortened by rain to 6 1/2 innings....

  • First-inning runs sufficient

    Nashville scored twice in the first inning, enough for a 2-1 victory over the visiting Colorado Springs Sky Sox on Sunday.

Sky Sox starter Tyler Cravy walked two in the first inning and they both scored on a two-out double...

  • Rangers fall 11-10 to Cruz, Mariners

    SEATTLE (AP) — Texas was forced to call on closer Neftali Feliz just to escape the eighth inning on Sunday because of the inability of his fellow relievers to throw strikes. It came back to bite the Rangers in the ninth. Austin Jackson singled in the tying run in the ninth inning, Nelson Cruz followed with a two-out single for his fifth RBI...

  • Cruz drives in 5 runs as Seattle beats Texas 11-10

    SEATTLE (AP) — Nelson Cruz showed power early on Sunday with two home runs, and patience and resiliency late coming through with the winning hit in the ninth inning after three strikeouts. It was a display by Cruz of the many reasons why Seattle paid last offseason to add him to its lineup. "Even when you hit homers you have to forget about...

  • McCarthy wins; Oberg gives up 3 HRs in 6th, Rockies lose 7-0 to Dodgers

    LOS ANGELES — The Colorado Rockies had swept their first two road series of the season at Milwaukee and San Francisco. Then they came into Dodger Stadium and got swept themselves.

  • Royals overcome 5 ejections to beat Athletics 4-2

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — After Oakland and Kansas City cleared the benches for the third straight game and five more Royals got ejected, Lorenzo Cain tried to put a positive spin on the day.

  • House struggles again as Indians lose to Twins 7-2

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — TJ House made strides toward rectifying his early-season struggles. It just wasn't enough to hold off the Twins.

Cleveland has lost six of its last eight games, and...

  • Marlins fight back, fall short again in 7-6 loss to Mets

    NEW YORK (AP) — For the second day in a row, the Miami Marlins fought back only to fall short. That was the closest thing to a positive development during their lost weekend in New York.

  • Hunter homers for Twins in 7-2 win over Indians

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Torii Hunter feels good about his swing and so do the Minnesota Twins.

"I'm just happy to get the home run out of the way in a Twins uniform in Target Field," said Hunter, flashing his charismatic...

  • Souza homers, has 3 hits, 3 RBIs as Rays lose to Yankees 5-3

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — A big game at the plate by Steven Souza Jr. failed to accomplish much for the Tampa Bay Rays.

  • Quintana allows 2 HRs to Cespedes as Tigers top ChiSox 9-1

    DETROIT (AP) — Whatever Jose Quintana is trying against Yoenis Cespedes, it isn't working.
