    Marquez throws 1-hitter, Rockies top SF 4-0, end 8-game skid
    April 14, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) German Marquez pitched a one-hitter, nicked only by Evan Longoria's single with one out in the eighth inning, and the Colorado Rockies ended an eight-game losing streak by beating the San Francisco Giants 4-0 Sunday.

    Marquez (2-1) struck out nine and walked none while throwing 105 pitches in the first complete game in the majors this season. It was the first-ever complete game for Marquez in 156 pro starts, including 69 in the big leagues.

    Marquez had allowed just one runner, hitting Kevin Pillar with a pitch to begin the sixth inning, and was in complete control heading into the eighth. Brandon Crawford opened the eighth with a hard, one-hopper that deflected off third baseman Nolan Arenado's glove. Arenado quickly grabbed the ball out of the air and zipped a throw to retire Crawford.

    Longoria followed with a grounder in the hole, just beyond Arenado's dive. The Gold Glover took off his mitt and slammed it to the ground, shouting in frustration that the no-hit bid had been broken up.

    Arenado hit a three-run homer, his first this season. The four-time Silver Slugger entered the day batting .246 with six RBIs.

    Derek Holland (1-2) allowed four runs on six hits in six innings.

    RED SOX 4, ORIOLES 0

    BOSTON (AP) - David Price pitched seven stellar innings with seven strikeouts, Xander Bogaerts hit a three-run homer and drove in every run, and Boston beat Baltimore.

    Boston's big starting foursome of Price, Chris Sale, Rick Porcello and Nathan Eovaldi entered Sunday 0-7 with an 8.43 ERA in 11 starts. Price (1-1) responded with clearly their best outing, mixing his mid-90s fastball with a sharp changeup and cutter to allow just three hits without issuing a walk.

    Baltimore's Chris Davis went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts a day after ending his record 0-for-54 stretch.

    Ryan Brasier escaped a jam in the eighth, and Matt Barnes worked the ninth, closing out the combined five-hitter.

    John Means (1-2) gave up a run and four hits in five innings, striking out three and walking one in just his second big league start. He made his first career appearance in Fenway Park last Sept. 26, allowing five runs over 3 1/3 innings.

    PHILLIES 3, MARLINS 1, 14 INNINGS

    MIAMI (AP) - Jean Segura's two-run homer to left in the 14th inning put Philadelphia on top, and the Phillies beat Miami in the longest game of the young season for either team.

    Andrew McCutchen tripled to the wall in left-center, and Segura followed with his first home run of the season. Cesar Hernandez also got his first homer of the season for the Phillies. Brian Anderson hit his second for Miami.

    Wei-Yin Chen (0-1) came on to pitch the 14th, was charged with both runs and his ERA actually dipped from 24.75 to 23.40. Chen - the highest-paid Marlins player this season, making $20 million - has allowed 12 runs over three innings of relief in his last two appearances.

    Miami batters struck out 18 times, tied for the fourth-most in franchise history. Victor Arano (1-0) pitched the 12th and 13th for Philadelphia, getting all six outs by strikeout. Jose Alvarez worked the 14th, gave up a leadoff single but finished out his first save.

    DODGERS 7, BREWERS 1

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Ross Stripling tossed eight strong innings to rescue an overworked bullpen, Joc Pederson and Alex Verdugo homered, and Los Angeles routed Milwaukee to snap a six-game skid.

    The Dodgers avoided back-to-back sweeps, something they haven't had since 2017 when they last dropped seven games in a row.

    Stripling (1-1) earned his first win in his fourth start of the season. The right-hander didn't record his first strikeout until the sixth inning and instead retired 14 of his first 17 batters on flyouts or grounders.

    The Dodgers jumped on Jhoulys Chacin (2-2) in the first inning, taking a 2-0 lead on a two-out RBI single by Verdugo.

    WHITE SOX 5, YANKEES 2


    NEW YORK (AP) - Tim Anderson hit his first career grand slam and Carlos Rodon pitched Chicago over scuffling New York.

    Jose Abreu nearly had a grand slam as well - to almost the same spot in the ballpark - but settled for a sacrifice fly when right fielder Aaron Judge made a jumping catch in front of the wall. Held to one hit Saturday in a 4-0 loss, Chicago chased Masahiro Tanaka (1-1) with nobody out in the fifth and won for only the second time in eight games.

    Yoan Moncada had three hits and a walk for the White Sox (5-9), who stole five bases in the last five innings - several of them uncontested. Chicago won two of three to take consecutive series in the Bronx for the first time since 2002-03. Before last August, the White Sox hadn't captured a series at Yankee Stadium since 2005.

    Rodon (2-2) allowed three hits in six innings and struck out five, improving to 3-0 in three starts at Yankee Stadium. Four relievers finished a four-hitter, with Alex Colome getting three quick outs for his third save.

    ROYALS 9, INDIANS 8

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Pinch-runner extraordinaire Terrance Gore stole a base and then scored on Hunter Dozier's single in the ninth inning, lifting Kansas City over Cleveland to complete a three-game sweep of the AL Central favorites.

    Ryan O'Hearn led off the ninth with a walk against Brad Hand (0-1) and was replaced by Gore. The speedster swiped second and advanced to third on a throwing error by catcher Roberto Perez. Dozier then singled to left for Kansas City's first walk-off win of the season.

    The Royals roughed up two-time Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber, who allowed 11 of his 18 batters to reach base safely. He gave up six runs, six hits and a career-most five walks in just 2 2/3 innings. The five walks doubled Kluber's season total - he didn't walk more than three batters in any game in 2018.

    Wily Peralta (1-1) pitched the top of the ninth.

    BRAVES 7, METS 3

    ATLANTA (AP) - Julio Teheran outpitched Jacob deGrom, Josh Donaldson and Nick Markakis homered, and Atlanta beat New York.

    Teheran gave up one run and six hits in six innings.

    It was a second straight losing performance for deGrom, who has allowed five homers in his last two starts. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner gave up 10 homers all of last season.

    Markakis went deep in the second and Donaldson added another solo shot in the fifth as the Braves won for the fifth time in their last seven games. Charlie Culberson's two-run drive made it 5-1 in the sixth. It was Culberson's fifth career pinch-hit homer.

    J.D. Davis' third homer gave the Mets a 1-0 lead in the second. New York got RBI singles by Amed Rosario and Keon Broxton in the eighth.

    DeGrom struck out nine, but allowed three runs and issued four walks.

    ASTROS 3, MARINERS 2

    SEATTLE (AP) - Gerrit Cole struck out 11 in six innings, Aledmys Diaz homered and Houston completed a three-game sweep of Seattle.

    Cole (1-2) gave up two runs on four hits, including a leadoff home run to Mitch Haniger, and did not walk a batter. Cole has pitched at least six innings in each of his four starts.

    Haniger's homer, his fifth, extended the Mariners' major league record streak of 18 games with a home run to start the season. Brandon Brennan (1-1) ended his season-opening scoreless streak at 11 1/3 innings.

    Hector Rondon, Ryan Pressly and Roberto Osuna each pitched a perfect inning in relief for Houston, with Osuna working the ninth for his seventh save.

    CARDINALS 9, REDS 5

    MONTERREY, Mexico (AP) - Marcell Ozuna hit two home runs and Matt Carpenter connected for a tiebreaking drive in the seventh inning that sent St. Louis over Cincinnati for a split of their two-game series in Mexico.

    Tyler O'Neill also homered for St. Louis. Yasiel Puig hit his first home run for the Reds and Jesse Winker hit his second in two days at Estadio de Beisbol de Monterrey.

    The Cardinals saluted the fans after the win and gave away their hats. The Houston Astros and Los Angeles Angels will play twice at this stadium in early May - Major League Baseball has committed to bring regular-season games to Mexico until 2021.

    It was 4-all when Carpenter opened the seventh with his second home run of the season, tagging Amir Garrett (1-1). Ozuna hit a solo homer off Jared Hughes and Jose Martinez capped the five-run inning with a two-run single that made it 9-4. Jordan Hicks closed for this third save. John Gant (3-0) pitched a scoreless inning.

    RAYS 8, BLUE JAYS 4

    TORONTO (AP) - Pinch-hitter Guillermo Heredia homered to cap a five-run burst in the eighth inning and Tampa Bay beat Toronto for its fifth straight series victory to start the season.

    Tampa Bay improved to 12-4 and matched the 2010 team for the best 16-game start in club history. The Blue Jays have lost seven of nine and haven't won a series this year.

    Blue Jays reliever Thomas Pannone became the 89th different pitcher in big league history to strike out the side on nine pitches. He fanned a swinging Avisail Garcia, then got Brandon Lowe and Daniel Robertson looking in the fifth.

    Adam Kolarek (1-0) pitched one inning for the victory. Marcus Stroman (0-3) allowed three runs, none earned, in four innings. He walked four and struck out five.

    PIRATES 4, NATIONALS 3

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Rookie Jason Martin hit a tiebreaking double in the top of the ninth inning against Washington's shaky bullpen, then Felipe Vazquez escaped a bases-loaded jam Pittsburgh a win.

    The Pirates took two of three and won a series at Nationals Park for the first time since 2013. Josh Bell drew a leadoff walk in the ninth from Wander Suero (1-1) and moved to second on Colin Moran's grounder. With two outs, Martin hit a ground-rule double to left for his second major league RBI.

    The Nationals loaded the bases in the bottom half on a single, walk and Adam Eaton's bunt single with one out. Vazquez (1-0) struck out Howie Kendrick and retired Anthony Rendon on a flyball to end it.

    Washington starter Max Scherzer allowed three runs and seven hits while working a season-high eight innings. He struck out seven.

    TWINS 6, TIGERS 4


    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jose Berrios (2-1) pitched into the seventh inning for his first win since opening day, Trevor Hildenberger struck out two with the bases loaded for his first save and Minnesota beat Detroit to complete a two-game sweep.

    C.J. Cron homered and drove in three, and Eddie Rosario was a triple short of the cycle for the Twins, who have won three of four.

    In his shortest outing of the season, Jordan Zimmermann (0-2) lasted three innings and allowed five runs and eight hits with one strikeout.

    RANGERS 8, ATHLETICS 7

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Danny Santana had a two-run, pinch-hit triple and scored the go-ahead run on Delino DeShields' bunt single during a four-run eighth inning, lifting Texas over Oakland.

    Jeffrey Springs (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth, and Jose Leclerc struck out three in the ninth for his third save.

    Joakim Soria (0-2) got one out in the eighth and was charged with four runs.

    DIAMONDBACKS 8, PADRES 4

    PHOENIX (AP) - Zack Greinke pitched seven strong innings and helped himself with two hits, pinch-hitter David Peralta connected for a three-run homer and Arizona beat San Diego to stop a four-game losing streak.

    Greinke (2-1) allowed two runs and four hits with six strikeouts. He won despite surrendering his seventh and eighth home runs of the season. Ketel Marte and Christian Walker also homered for the Diamondbacks.

    Manuel Margot led off the game with a home run and Fernando Tatis Jr. also connected for NL West-leading San Diego. The Padres had won four in a row. San Diego starter Eric Lauer (2-2) gave up three runs on eight hits over five innings.

    Monday’s 6-pack

    — Celtics 84, Pacers 74— Indiana scored 8 points in third quarter.

    — Blazers 104, Thunder 99— OKC was 5-33 behind the arc.

    — Rockies 4, Giants 0— Marquez had a no-hiiter into 8th inning.

    — Cardinals 9, Reds 5— NL Central rivals split pair of games in Mexico.

    — Astros 3, Mariners 2— Houston goes to Seattle and sweeps the Mariners.

    — Dodgers 7, Brewers 1— LA snaps its 6-game losing streak.

    Quote of the Day
    “Just the way he gave the deadline. He’s been a tremendous player there for them, but to me, that gives just enough ammo for the fans out there to not really like that and enough for the Seahawks to maybe do what they’ve done, jettisoning some of their other players before they overpay.”
    Former Raiders coach Jack del Rio

    Monday’s quiz
    What two colleges did Russell Wilson play football for?

    Sunday’s quiz
    Hubie Brown coached the Kentucky Colonels in the ABA.

    Saturday’s quiz
    Luke Walton played his college basketball at Arizona.

    *****************************

    Monday’s List of 13: Wrapping up a sport weekend……

    13) I’m listening to Hubie Brown analyze the Spurs-Nuggets game Saturday, and he talks about when he coached games in Denver in the old ABA, when he coached the Kentucky Colonels, who were a really good team. He was talking about the high altitude in Denver.

    Then it dawned on me; the ABA folded in 1976, WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL.

    Hubie is so awesome, so sharp, a pleasure to listen to. Absolutely no nonsense; he was coaching pro ball when I had a full head of curly hair, and thats a damn long time ago.

    12) The 1974-75 Kentucky Colonels were really good; they went 58-26, won the second-to-last ABA title, with a roster that included Artis Gilmore, Dan Issel, Louie Dampier, Will Jones, really good players.

    Had the Colonels’ owner not sold out to the ABA’s other owners and folded the Colonels (he was later allowed to buy the Celtics as a reward for screwing the Kentucky fans), Hubie Brown would have had a hell of a ballclub to go into the NBA with.

    Instead, the Nets, Pacers, Nuggets, Spurs joined the NBA for the 1976-77 season.

    11) One thing that disappointed me about Showtime’s 4-part Action series about sports betting is that they never showed the Westgate Theater on an NFL Sunday, which is my favorite place to be on any football Sunday. Just a perfect setup. Food to the left, betting in back, people are respectful of each other. I’ve had some excellent conversations in there with total strangers while watching football.

    On a college football Saturday, the Westgate SuperBook is great fun. The SuperBook is a cool place to hang out and the SouthPoint is awesome for baseball/basketball nights, but for an NFL Sunday, a 1,500-seat theater with food/betting is pretty much ideal.

    10) Last episode of the Action series last night focused on the Super Bowl, which was a very sad few hours at Armadillo World HQ (I’ve been a Ram fan since 1966). This isn’t an episode I’ll watch more than once. Too soon.

    9) FOX should have a much better #1 baseball analyst than John Smoltz, who doesn’t seem to like baseball that much. Listen to him for a few innings and it is obvious he’d much rather be out on the golf course. He should work for the Golf Channel.

    8) Congrats to the person who wagered $85,000 on Eldrick Woods this week at 14-1 odds; his payday is $1.19M, about half of what Woods won at Augusta.

    7) Baseball injuries:
    — Seattle put P Wade LeBlanc (oblique) on the IL
    — Braves put P Aroyds Vizcaino (shoulder) on IL
    — Boston OF Andrew Benitendi left Sunday’s game after fouling a ball off his foot.

    6) First two days of NBA playoffs, favorites were 4-4 vs spread; under was 8-0.

    5) Coaching carousel:
    — Cincinnati hired Northern Kentucky’s John Brannen as its new coach.
    — Utah Valley hired Lakers’ assistant Mark Madsen as its new coach.
    — Wofford promoted associate coach Jay McAuley as head coach.

    4) James Harden won the NBA scoring title this season by 8.09 points/game, the biggest margin of victory since Wilt Chamberlain won it by 16+ points in 1962-63.

    3) It is April 15; Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel are still free agents. Weird.

    2) Former Clemson QB Kelly Bryant is playing at Missouri now; when Mizzou had its spring game this weekend, 7 or 8 of his Clemson teammates went to Columbia to watch Bryant play- thats something NFL scouts will take note of down the road. A quarterback being liked/respected by teammates is a big deal to NFL scouts.

    1) NFL schedule comes out this week; seems like last season just ended.

    LEADING OFF: MLB celebrates Jackie Robinson Day
    April 14, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    A look at what's happening around the majors Monday:

    JACKIE ROBINSON DAY

    Major League Baseball observes Jackie Robinson Day at ballparks all over the country. Robinson broke baseball's color barrier when he debuted with the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947. All players, managers, coaches, umpires and other on-field personnel will wear Robinson's retired No. 42. Members of Robinson's family are expected to be at Dodger Stadium for the opener of a three-game series between the Reds and Dodgers.

    HE'S BACK

    Speaking of Los Angeles, Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw makes his first start of the season after being sidelined by left shoulder inflammation. Kershaw is 3-2 with a 2.54 ERA in 10 career starts versus Cincinnati. He likely will face former teammate Yasiel Puig in his return to L.A. after he was traded to the Reds in December. Puig spent his first six major league seasons with the Dodgers. Kershaw will be opposed by Luis Castillo, who has a sparkling 0.92 ERA over his first three starts this year.

    PATRIOTS' DAY

    The Red Sox are set to play their annual Patriots' Day morning game, hosting Baltimore for an odd 11:05 a.m. start. Last year's game was postponed due to poor weather, the first rainout on the Massachusetts holiday since 1994. Weather could be an issue again this year, although forecasts project the rain to ease up right around first pitch. Boston has a chance to win its first series this season in the finale of a four-game set with the Orioles.

    TIME TO RESET

    The Indians and Mariners open a series in Seattle, both coming off weekend sweeps to division rivals. Cleveland dropped three at Kansas City. The Mariners lost three home games to the Astros, dropping their early AL West lead to one game. Trevor Bauer (1-1, 2.29 ERA) pitches for the Indians against Seattle's Yusei Kikuchi (0-0, 4.15 ERA).

    SLUMPING

    Cardinals reliever Andrew Miller looks to get back on track after another shaky outing in Sunday's 9-5 victory over the Reds in Mexico. The 6-foot-7 left-hander allowed a single to Matt Kemp, struck out Jose Peraza and walked Curt Casali before he was replaced by Jordan Hicks. Miller agreed to a $25 million, two-year deal with St. Louis in December. He has a 6.35 ERA in nine games this season, allowing seven hits in 5 2/3 innings. The Cardinals begin a three-game series at Milwaukee on Monday night.

  5. #215
    STREAKING AND SLUMPING STARTERS

    STREAKING

    Matt Shoemaker, Toronto Blue Jays (3-0, 0.92 ERA, $429)


    The new digs in Toronto seem to really suit Shoemaker who is having a career year with the Jays. The 32-year-old has struck out 19 batters and allowed just nine hits in 19.2 innings, with a WHIP of 0.71. His early season performance has paid off handsomely for a Blue Jays squad that signed him to a one-year $3.5 million contract in December, and for bettors who've backed him their investment will have paid off as well.

    Today, Shoemaker and the Blue Jays visit Minnesota as +115 underdogs. He could be in for a tough challenge against the Twins who are third in the majors in batting average and ninth in runs scored per game.

    SLUMPING

    Yu Darvish, Chicago Cubs (0-2, 7.50 ERA, $-426)


    Darvish is another 32-year-old righty but he is off to a terrible start this season, allowing 12 hits and walking 11 batters through 12 innings with a WHIP of 1.92. He has struggled with his control, especially of his fastball.

    Darvish will be looking to bounce back tonight against the Miami Marlins who are 28th in the league in runs scored per game with 2.88 and 23rd in BA hitting .222. The Cubbies are -125 faves for this road matchup with the 4-12 Marlins.


    THREE STRIKES

    STRIKELESS IN SEATTLE


    Cleveland generally plays well with Trevor Bauer starting, going 8-3 in his last 11 starts but there's a couple trends to beware of before backing them today. The Indians are 1-6 in Bauer's last seven starts against the Mariners and 1-4 in his last five starts in Seattle. Bauer has also historically struggled in April, with Cleveland 1-6 in his last seven starts on the road during this month.

    THE CLAW MAKES HIS RETURN

    Clayton Kershaw makes his season debut against the Cincinnati Reds Monday night, with the Dodgers -160 home faves. Arguably the greatest pitcher of this decade (along with Max Scherzer), Kershaw had problems with his shoulder during Spring Training causing L.A. to shut him down and start his season on the injured list. He went 9-5 with a 2.73 ERA in 2018.

    The Dodgers are 42-12 in Kershaw's last 54 home starts, and with Cincinnati starting Luis Castillo who is off to a great year with an ERA of 0.92 and a WHIP of 0.66 through three starts, the first five innings Under might be a good play.

    COMING DOWN TO EARTH

    Colorado heads to San Diego as +135 underdogs. The Rockies are 21-5-3 to the Under in their last 29 games away from Coors Field while the Padres have cashed in on the Under in six of their previous eight contests at home. The O/U for this one is set at a low 7 (especially considering the mediocrity of starting pitchers Joey Luchessi and Antonio Senzatela) but might be worth looking at given how poor both teams have batted so far this year.

    Ballpark Figures - Week 4
    Joe Williams



    Wild Cards
    The St. Louis Cardinals meet the Milwaukee Brewers in a key early season matchup in the National League Central. The Cards enter play with six victories over the past seven outings, and they're a perfect 5-0 in the past five games against teams with a winning overall record. In addition, they're 4-1 in the past five games against a right-handed starting pitcher, while going 17-8 in the past 25 on the road vs. RHP. While all of that is well and good, they're 1-7 in the past eight matchups against the Brewers.

    The Brewers have emerged as a contender in the National League Central over the past two seasons, and they're have dominated against division foes lately. They're 23-8 in the past 31 games against NL Central teams. The Brewers are also 19-7 in the past 26 games against teams with a winning record, and they're 36-17 in the past 53 games at Miller Park, too. The Brewers have also handled themselves agaisnt winning teams, winning 19 of the past 26 against opponents over .500.

    Looking Ahead

    Monday, April 15

    The New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies do battle at Citizens Bank Park in what should be a solid pitching matchup. RHP Noah Syndergaard will go up against RHP Aaron Nola in what could be a low-scoring affair. The Mets roll into this one with an 8-3 record across the past 11 road games, while going 7-1 in their past eight games on the road against a right-handed starting pitcher. In addition, they're 9-4 in the past 13 overall vs. RHP. All of that is great, but the Mets are actually 2-5 in the past seven starts on the road by Syndergaard against teams with a winning record.

    For the Phillies, they're 11-5 in the past 16 games overall, and they're 8-3 in the past 11 at 'The Vault'. In addition, they are 9-4 in the past 13 games inside the division, while going 4-1 in the past five against teams with a winning overall mark. They're 21-6 in the past 27 home outings by Nola, and they're 22-10 in his past 32 starts overall, too. The Phillies have also won 13 of his past 19 starts against NL East opponents. The Mets have made themselves at home in Philly, going 36-17 in their past 53 trips to the City of Brotherly Love. However, the Phillies are 5-0 in Nola's past five starts against the Mets, and 4-0 in his past four at home against the Amazins. The under is also 4-0 in his past four home starts against New York, and 6-0-1 in the past seven meetings overall against the Mets with Nola on the bump.

    The Indians and Mariners hook up at T-Mobile Park (formerly Safeco Field) on Monday night, and it's a great pitching matchup with RHP Trevor Bauer and rookie LHP Yusei Kikuchi hooking up. Bauer has posted a 1-1 record with a 2.29 ERA through 19 2/3 innings across three outings. Kikuchi has yet to factor into a decision yet through 21 2/3 innings with just three walks and 15 strikeouts.

    The Indians have won just once in the past five games, and they're 1-4 in the past five on the road, too. That includes a three-game sweep at the hand of the lowly Kansas City Royals. Bauer should be the stopper, as the Indians are 8-3 in the past 11 starts overall by Bauer, and 5-2 in the past seven road outings weith Bauer on the hill. They're also 11-5 in the past 16 starts by Bauer against teams with a winning record. The M's have won 16 of the past 21 games overall, and they're 13-4 in the past 17 vs. RHP. However, they're just 0-4 in the past four against teams with a winning record.

    Weather Report
    In Philadelphia, the Mets and Phillies will be facing winds blowing left to right at 19-23 mph, potentially favoring left-handed hitters. At Target Field, the Blue Jays and Twins will be facing a stiff wind of 10-13 mph blowing in from right field to home plate. The Angels and Rangers will also see a strong wing blowing from the right-field foul pole into the face of batters, and the winds will be gusting from 15-18 mph.

    Tuesday, April 16
    The Red Sox and Yankees renew their rivalry for a quickie two-game set in the Bronx on Tuesday night. Neither team has gotten off to the kind of start they were hoping for, as the Red Sox enter the week at 6-10, while the Yankees are just 6-9. Boston tries to get LHP Chris Sale on track. They're just 1-4 in his past five starts, and he enters the game with a dismal 0-3 record, 9.00 ERA and .361 OBP by opponents, while managing just eight strikeouts over 13 innings. That's definitely not what we've come to expect from Sale over the years. The Yankees counter with LHP James Paxton, who isn't that much better at 1-2 with a 6.00 ERA and .388 OBP.

    Boston heads into this one 9-3 in the past 12 vs. LHP, and they'e 2-7 over the past nine games on the road, too. For the Yankees, they're just 1-4 in their past five home outings, and 1-5 in the past six games overall. They're also just 1-5 in the past six games at home vs. LHP. In the past five meetings, the Red Sox have won four of them, with the 'over' cashing in seven of the past nine games overall. The over is also 5-2 in the past seven tangles in the Bronx, while going 4-0 in Sale's past four against the Yankees.

    The Astros and Athletics kick off a set in Oakland with RHP Collin McHugh and RHP Marco Estrada squaring off. Oakland looks to cool off Houston, as they enter on a nine-game winning streak. The Astros have won six in a row against winning teams, and they're 6-0 in the past six against RHP, too. They're also 20-7 in the past 27 games against AL West foes. In addition, the Astros are an impressive 33-6 in the past 39 starts by McHugh against AL West opponents. On the flip side, the A's have dropped each of Estrada's past four outings, and they're 1-4 in the past five starts against AL West foes, and 2-5 in the past seven vs. RHP.

    Weather Report
    The winds will be gusting at 10-13 mph from home plate to Pesky's Pole in right field, so it could be a high-scoring affair. It will be the opposite conditions in Arlington, as the Angels and Rangers will have a strong 15-18 mph wind blowing in from right field to home plate. In San Diego, the Rockies and Padres will be battling winds blowing in from left-center field to home plate at an 11-14 mph clip.

    Yelich's 3 homers lift Brewers past Cardinals, 10-7
    April 16, 2019
    By The Associated Press

    MILWAUKEE (AP) Christian Yelich hit three homers, including a pair of three-run shots, and drove in a career-high seven runs to power the Milwaukee Brewers past the St. Louis Cardinals 10-7 on Monday night.

    Yelich, the reigning NL MVP, hit his first three-run homer to cap a six-run second inning. After St. Louis tied it with three runs in the sixth, Yelich answered in the bottom half with a towering three-run blast to right off Mike Mayers (0-1).

    Yelich capped his night with his eighth homer this season, going deep to lead off the eighth. He also lined out in the first and was walked intentionally in the fourth.

    Junior Guerra (1-0) worked 1 2/3 innings for the victory. Josh Hader struck out the side in the ninth after allowing Marcell Ozuna's sixth home run to open the inning.

    METS 7, PHILLIES 6, 11 INNINGS

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Juan Lagares scored from second base on Michael Conforto's hard grounder in the 11th inning and New York beat Philadelphia.

    Lagares led off with an infield single against Pat Neshek (0-1), and Brandon Nimmo walked. Two outs later, Conforto hit a sharp grounder that first baseman Rhys Hoskins couldn't field for an error. The ball trickled to second baseman Cesar Hernandez and Lagares kept running, scoring easily because the throw was way off target.

    Luis Avilan (1-0) pitched out of trouble in the 10th, stranding runners on second and third. Edwin Diaz struck out the side for his sixth save in six tries and his 16th in a row, dating to last season with Seattle.

    Noah Syndergaard had a rough outing for the Mets, giving up five runs and nine hits in five innings while fanning nine. Phillies ace Aaron Nola allowed five runs in four innings.

    CUBS 7, MARLINS 2

    MIAMI (AP) - Willson Contreras hit his sixth homer, drove in three and reached base four times, and Chicago thawed out to beat Miami.

    The temperature in Chicago was 33 when the Cubs' game Sunday against the Angels was snowed out, and it was 84 with the retractable roof open for the first pitch at Marlins Park.

    Yu Darvish (1-2) struck out eight in a season-high 5 2/3 innings. He allowed two runs, lowering his ERA to 6.11. Three relievers completed the six-hitter.

    Chicago scored three times in the first, and Javier Baez drove in a run with a two-out bloop double in the fifth off Trevor Richards (0-2), who allowed five runs in 4 2/3 innings.

    ORIOLES 8, RED SOX 1

    BOSTON (AP) - Dwight Smith Jr. hooked a two-run homer into the first row of seats down the right field line and drove in four, leading Baltimore to victory in Boston's annual Patriots' Day game.

    Baltimore salvaged a split of the four-game series. It had lost nine of its previous 11 games and was 4-21 in its last 25 against Boston. Chris Davis also hit a two-run homer - much further into the right field bleachers - and Renato Nunez had three hits with an RBI single.

    Dan Straily (1-1) rebounded from a rough debut start with Baltimore, giving up a run on two hits in five innings. He was tagged for five runs and eight hits over 3 1/3 innings by Oakland last week.

    Spot starter Hector Velazquez (0-1) gave up a run in three innings.

    RANGERS 12, ANGELS 7

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Joey Gallo homered and grounded a tiebreaking single to the vacant spot at shortstop against the shift, helping Texas beat Los Angeles in Mike Trout's return after missing three games with a groin injury.

    Trout, the designated hitter while the club waits a little longer before putting the two-time AL MVP back in center field, went 0 for 2 with three walks.

    Shin-Soo Choo, who had three hits, homered leading off the third for his first of the season. Asdrubal Cabrera matched Gallo for the team lead with his fifth homer , a two-run shot for an 11-4 lead in the sixth.

    Reliever Kyle Dowdy (1-0) earned his first major league victory, giving up one run on one hit in 2 2/3 innings. Closer Jose Leclerc got his fourth save. Cam Bedrosian (1-1) allowed five of the seven hitters he faced to reach, starting with Elvis Andrus' leadoff double in the fifth.

    BLUE JAYS 5, TWINS 3

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Teoscar Hernandez hit the go-ahead three-run homer in the eighth inning, giving Toronto a badly needed offensive boost with three hits in a victory over Minnesota.

    After Martin Perez finished six innings in his first start for the Twins with only one run allowed and Ryne Harper struck out two batters in a perfect seventh, left-hander Adalberto Mejia was summoned for the eighth with all righties due up for the Blue Jays. Freddy Galvis greeted Mejia with a single, Randal Grichuk doubled for his third hit of the game, and Justin Smoak hit an RBI single. Then Hernandez sent an 0-2 slider from Mejia (0-1) into the second deck for a 5-3 lead.

    Sam Gaviglio (1-0) picked up the victory with a scoreless seventh. Joe Biagini pitched a perfect ninth for his first save.

    WHITE SOX 5, ROYALS 4

    CHICAGO (AP) - Welington Castillo atoned for an error with a two-run homer in the eighth inning, and Chicago rallied to beat Kansas City.

    Castillo's poor throw on Billy Hamilton's steal in the seventh helped set up Whit Merrifield's tiebreaking sacrifice fly. But Castillo came up big after Tim Anderson led off the eighth with a double against Brad Boxberger (0-3), sending an opposite-field drive to right for his first homer of the season.

    Manny Banuelos (1-0) pitched three hitless innings for his first win since 2015, and Alex Colome worked the ninth for his fourth save in four chances and No. 100 for his career.

    Tuesday’s 6-pack

    Since 2001, longest streaks of consecutive games reaching base:
    63— Orlando Cabrera
    57— Barry Bonds
    56— Ryan Klesko
    53— Alex Rodriguez
    52— Shin-Soo Choo, Kevin Millar
    50— Gary Sheffield

    Quote of the Day
    “Just the way he gave the deadline. He’s been a tremendous player there for them, but to me, that gives just enough ammo for the fans out there to not really like that and enough for the Seahawks to maybe do what they’ve done, jettisoning some of their other players before they overpay.”
    Former Raiders coach Jack del Rio

    Tuesday’s quiz
    How many major league teams has Terry Francona managed?

    Monday’s quiz
    Russell Wilson played college football for NC State and Wisconsin.

    Sunday’s quiz
    Hubie Brown coached the Kentucky Colonels in the ABA.

    *****************************

    Tuesday’s List of 13: Nobody asked me, but……

    13) You never know about team chemistry, what goes on behind closed doors.

    Last week, Marquette G Markus Howard announced he was coming back for his senior year, which was surprising, considering the kid had skipped his senior year of HS to begin college when he was 17 years old. But you figured it was very good news for Marquette.

    Yesterday, brothers Sam/Joey Hauser announced they’re in the transfer portal, and will be leaving Marquette, which was really almost shocking news. As Darren MacGavin said in The Natural, “Something is amiss”

    You don’t have to be Columbo to come to the conclusion that the Hauser brothers didn’t enjoy playing basketball with Markus Howard.

    12) Fred Hoiberg is the new coach at Nebraska; in 2011, he quickly upgraded Iowa State’s program by bringing in transfers. Nebraska is the early favorite to land the Hauser brothers.

    11) In his last two starts, hitters swung at 103 of Jacob deGrom’s pitches:
    — 24 misses (23.3%)
    — 52 foul balls (50.5%)
    — 27 balls in play, with 13 of those hits (.481). Not good.

    Last year and in his first two starts this year, hitters swung at 1,725 of deGrom’s pitches:
    — 504 misses (29.2%),
    — 645 foul balls (37.4%)
    — 533 balls in play, with 188 of those hits (.353) Very good.

    Something to track moving forward; he’s having trouble putting hitters away.

    10) The gambler who won $1.19M betting on Eldrick Woods at The Masters? The guy is from Wisconsin; apparently it was the first-ever sports bet.

    First sports bet he ever makes and its for $85,000? Wow.

    9) Non-sports question: Why would someone pay $500,000 so their kid could get into a college? I don’t care if it is USC, Harvard, DeVry University or Ouachita Baptist; whats the point?

    If the kid isn’t smart enough to get in the school in the first place, how will they do enough work to get a diploma? Or does the $500K cover that, too? Too many weasels in the world today.


    8) Rockies 5, Padres 2— Colorado scored a run in 2nd inning for first time this season; they still haven’t scored in the first inning.

    Under is 21-5-3 in Colorado’s last 29 road games.

    7) Baseball injuries:
    — Rockies put C Chris Iannetta (lat strain) on the IL.
    — Phillies put P David Robertson (elbow) on the IL.
    — Angels put P Tyler Skaggs (ankle) on the IL.
    — Braves put P Jonny Venters (calf) on the IL.

    6) Clippers 135, Warriors 131- Golden State blew a 31-point lead, may have lost DeMarcus Cousins with a torn quad muscle. Series is even, 1-1.

    Sidebar to Clippers-Warriors series is that Doc Rivers’ daughter is engaged to Portland G Seth Curry, who is Steph Curry’s brother.

    5) Brewers 10, Cardinals 7— In five games vs St Louis this season, Christian Yelich has seven homers, 15 RBI.

    4) AA Arkansas Travelers didn’t get a hit Sunday, but they beat Tulsa 1-0 in 10 innings.

    Starting this year in extra innings in minor league games, innings start with a runner on 2nd base, an incredibly stupid innovation; the run Arkansas scored came in on a bases loaded walk.

    I’d rather see tie games than have innings start with a runner on second base.

    3) Sacramento Kings fired coach Dave Joerger last week; turns out Joerger wanted the Kings to draft Luka Doncic instead of Marvin Bagley Jr. Maybe Joerger should be the Kings’ GM.

    2) RIP to coach John MacLeod, who passed away over the weekend at age 81.

    When I was in college, I wrote several letters to coaches around the country, asking how they used statistics (what is called analytics today) in their coaching. Thats how I put myself thru college, as a student manager of the basketball team— we did some interesting stuff with stats.

    MacLeod was one of the few people who took the time to answer me, and I always appreciated that. RIP, sir.

    1) They ran the Boston Marathon Monday; running 26 miles (and 365 yards) seems excessive to me. Hell, if I drive my car 26 miles I’m looking for a Wendy’s or a McDonald’s. But more power to the people who are way tougher than me. Hope you all had fun.

    LEADING OFF: Red Sox-Yankees, Lindor begins rehab assignment
    April 15, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    A look at what's happening around the majors today:

    RIVALRY RENEWED

    Mookie Betts tries to get going at the plate when the Red Sox (6-11) visit the Yankees (6-9) in the first meeting this season between the longtime rivals. Boston knocked New York out of the playoffs last year on the way to a World Series championship, but both clubs are off to surprisingly slow starts in 2019. Same is true of Betts, who is batting .222. ''Basically, what I'm doing is unacceptable,'' the AL MVP said. ''I have to figure out a way to get something done and help the team.'' Yankees left-hander James Paxton (1-2, 6.00 ERA) gets his first taste of the bitter rivalry when he faces struggling Boston ace Chris Sale (0-3, 9.00) in the opener of a two-game set. Paxton told reporters he thought he was tipping pitches in Houston last Wednesday during an 8-6 loss.

    LINDOR LIMBERS UP

    Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor is set to begin an injury rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus. Lindor is working back from a left ankle injury, which occurred near the end of spring training while he was trying to come back from a right calf strain. Cleveland manager Terry Francona isn't sure how long Lindor will be with Columbus before joining the big league club.

    TOP OF THE TABLE

    Tampa Bay (12-4) takes baseball's best record into its series opener at home against Baltimore. On the mound for the Rays will be Tyler Glasnow, who is 3-0 with a 0.53 ERA. The big right-hander was acquired from Pittsburgh last year in a trade for Chris Archer. Tampa Bay has the lowest ERA in the majors at 2.44 - and the starters are even better at 1.47. In the other dugout, the Orioles hope Chris Davis is about to go on a long-awaited tear. Davis ended his record 0-for-54 slump with three hits and four RBIs on Saturday, then socked his first homer since August on Monday.

    MISSING PIECE

    The Phillies will need to make do for a while without the biggest offseason addition to their bullpen. David Robertson was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday because of a sore right elbow. Right-hander Drew Anderson was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take Robertson's spot. Philadelphia manager Gabe Kapler said Robertson will have an MRI on Tuesday. The right-hander has a 5.40 ERA in seven appearances but hasn't allowed a run in his last four. The Phillies signed him to a $23 million, two-year contact in the offseason.

    STREAKY TEAMS (ENTERING MONDAY)

    Wins and Losses Streak Over/Under Streak

    Colorado 2-12 past 14 games overall Kansas City Over 11-2-1 past 14 games

    Houston 9-0 past nine games overall L.A. Angels Under 12-3 past 15 games

    Miami 2-10 past 12 games overall N.Y. Mets Over 11-2-1 past 14 games


    Wild Cards

    The St. Louis Cardinals meet the Milwaukee Brewers in a key early season matchup in the National League Central. The Cards enter play with six victories over the past seven outings, and they're a perfect 5-0 in the past five games against teams with a winning overall record. In addition, they're 4-1 in the past five games against a right-handed starting pitcher, while going 17-8 in the past 25 on the road vs. RHP. While all of that is well and good, they're 1-7 in the past eight matchups against the Brewers.

    Tuesday, April 16

    The Red Sox and Yankees renew their rivalry for a quickie two-game set in the Bronx on Tuesday night. Neither team has gotten off to the kind of start they were hoping for, as the Red Sox enter the week at 6-10, while the Yankees are just 6-9. Boston tries to get LHP Chris Sale on track. They're just 1-4 in his past five starts, and he enters the game with a dismal 0-3 record, 9.00 ERA and .361 OBP by opponents, while managing just eight strikeouts over 13 innings. That's definitely not what we've come to expect from Sale over the years. The Yankees counter with LHP James Paxton, who isn't that much better at 1-2 with a 6.00 ERA and .388 OBP.

    Boston heads into this one 9-3 in the past 12 vs. LHP, and they'e 2-7 over the past nine games on the road, too. For the Yankees, they're just 1-4 in their past five home outings, and 1-5 in the past six games overall. They're also just 1-5 in the past six games at home vs. LHP. In the past five meetings, the Red Sox have won four of them, with the 'over' cashing in seven of the past nine games overall. The over is also 5-2 in the past seven tangles in the Bronx, while going 4-0 in Sale's past four against the Yankees.

    The Astros and Athletics kick off a set in Oakland with RHP Collin McHugh and RHP Marco Estrada squaring off. Oakland looks to cool off Houston, as they enter on a nine-game winning streak. The Astros have won six in a row against winning teams, and they're 6-0 in the past six against RHP, too. They're also 20-7 in the past 27 games against AL West foes. In addition, the Astros are an impressive 33-6 in the past 39 starts by McHugh against AL West opponents. On the flip side, the A's have dropped each of Estrada's past four outings, and they're 1-4 in the past five starts against AL West foes, and 2-5 in the past seven vs. RHP.

    Weather Report

    The winds will be gusting at 10-13 mph from home plate to Pesky's Pole in right field, so it could be a high-scoring affair. It will be the opposite conditions in Arlington, as the Angels and Rangers will have a strong 15-18 mph wind blowing in from right field to home plate. In San Diego, the Rockies and Padres will be battling winds blowing in from left-center field to home plate at an 11-14 mph clip.

    STREAKING AND SLUMPING STARTERS

    STREAKING


    Shane Bieber, Cleveland Indians (1-0, 1.80 ERA, $200): It looks like it could be a breakout season for Cleveland’s 23-year old right-hander. Bieber has been almost unhittable in his first three games (two starts) with a 0.67 WHIP and a .196 opponent on base percentage.

    However, he faces his first real challenge of the season as the Indians visit the Mariners and their hot bats. Cleveland is currently a -120 favorite with a total sitting at 8.

    SLUMPING

    Dylan Bundy, Baltimore Orioles (0-1, 8.76 ERA, $70):
    We really are sorry Dylan. We just know he is much more talented than his numbers say. He is a man who just doesn’t want to waste away in Baltimore and his pitching reflects that.

    There is no way his opponents should have an OBP of nearly .400 with the stuff he has. Bundy will be in a familiar position tonight, as a big underdog. The O’s are currently +205 road dogs against the Rays with a total of 8.


    3 STRIKES

    BLUE BIRDS STARTERS STILL TAKING FLIGHT


    The Blue Jays continue to get great starting performances from there starters. Clay Buchholz joined the party last weekend, allowing one run in six innings in his first start against the Rays. Matt Shoemaker pitched another quality start last night against the Twins, and tonight it’s Aaron Sanchez’s turn. Sanchez has a 1.69 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP in his first three starts of the season. The Twins will be a tough challenge, ranking in the top 10 in batting average and OPS. With the Jays continuing to struggle to hit early in games, maybe take a look at the Under in the first five innings here.

    Yanks beat Red Sox 8-0 in matchup of struggling AL East foes
    April 16, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    NEW YORK (AP) James Paxton struck out 12 in his first stab at baseball's biggest rivalry, Red Sox ace Chris Sale found his fastball but not better results, and the New York Yankees three-hit Boston 8-0 on Tuesday night in the first game this season between the struggling AL East foes.

    Paxton (2-2) pitched two-hit ball for eight innings, walking one and going to just two three-ball counts in a game that took only 2 hours, 23 minutes.

    Mike Tauchman hit his first major league homer and drove in four runs, and Clint Frazier and Gleyber Torres also went deep for the Yankees. New York had dropped five of six and is 7-9 a year after winning 100 games.

    Sale (0-4) reached 97.5 mph - a positive sign for Boston after his velocity sagged this spring - but still got hit around, allowing four runs and seven hits over five innings. He struck out six and walked one while the World Series champions dropped to 6-12.

    PHILLIES 14, METS 3

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Scott Kingery and J.T. Realmuto each had three hits and five RBIs as Philadelphia routed New York.

    Kingery and Maikel Franco hit three-run homers and Realmuto had a pair of two-run doubles in a 10-run first inning. Realmuto also went deep for the Phillies in the fourth.

    Nick Pivetta (2-1) gave up three runs and seven hits in five innings.

    Mets starter Steven Matz (1-1) allowed eight runs - six earned - without retiring a batter. He had allowed only three earned runs total in his first three starts. The lefty's ERA rose from 1.65 to 4.96.

    Wilson Ramos and Michael Conforto each hit a solo homer for New York.

    PIRATES 5, TIGERS 3, 10 INNINGS

    DETROIT (AP) - Starling Marte hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning to lift Pittsburgh over Detroit.

    Jung Ho Kang also went deep for Pittsburgh, which blew a 3-0 lead but recovered to win when Marte hit a two-out drive off Shane Greene (0-1). Detroit's closer hadn't allowed a run all season.

    Keone Kela (1-0) gave up a tying single by Jeimer Candelario in the ninth, but Nick Kingham was able to close out the Tigers in the 10th for his first career save.

    Pittsburgh starter Joe Musgrove permitted his first two earned runs of the season. He yielded six hits and a walk while striking out six in seven innings.

    Tigers starter Matthew Boyd struck out the side in the first but eventually allowed three runs in seven innings.

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Tyler Glasnow allowed two runs over seven innings in winning his fourth consecutive start to begin the season and Avisail Garcia drove in three runs as Tampa Bay beat Baltimore for its seventh win in eight games.

    Glasnow (4-0) allowed hits to six of the first 13 batters, but allowed one hit over his final 4 2/3 innings and ended the outing by retiring 10 in a row.

    Garcia hit a two-run homer during a three-run fourth, and added an RBI single in the eighth. Jose Alvarado and Diego Castillo, who earned his second save, each went a perfect inning.

    The Orioles got an RBI from both Rio Ruiz and Renato Nunez, and Dylan Bundy (0-2) gave up three runs and three hits over five innings.

    CUBS 4, MARLINS 0

    MIAMI (AP) - Jose Quintana gave up six hits in seven innings to lead Chicago over Miami.

    Quintana (2-1) struck out seven and extended his scoreless innings streak to 14. He didn't allow a runner to reach second until Austin Dean's two-out double in the seventh.

    Javier Baez went 3 for 4 and hit his fifth homer, a solo shot to the opposite field off Adam Conley in the eighth. Baez has three hits in each of his last three games. Ben Zobrist hit a sacrifice fly in the ninth for Chicago's fourth run.

    Brandon Kintzler relieved Quintana and surrendered a two-out single to Brian Anderson and walked Starlin Castro. Pedro Strop pitched a scoreless ninth for the Cubs, who have won five of six.

    GIANTS 7, NATIONALS 3

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Evan Longoria, Brandon Belt and Steven Duggar homered off fastballs from Stephen Strasburg and light-hitting San Francisco powered past Washington.

    The Giants entered the game with 10 homers through their first 17 games. They won for the fourth time in five games.

    Strasburg (1-1) allowed four runs in six innings. Still learning to pitch with a fastball that sits in the low-to-mid-90s, instead of the high-90s heat he possessed before Tommy John surgery and other ailments, he's served up five homers over his past two outings.

    Dereck Rodriguez (2-2), son of Hall of Famer and former Nationals catcher Ivan ''Pudge'' Rodriguez, gave up one run and five hits in five innings.

    DIAMONDBACKS 9, BRAVES 6

    ATLANTA (AP) - Christian Walker homered leading off the ninth inning and Arizona rallied against the shaky Atlanta bullpen. The Braves squandered a massive, knee-buckling homer by Ronald Acuna Jr. and another strong start by Max Fried.

    Johan Camargo's three-run double in the fifth put the Braves ahead. Fried finally gave up his first earned runs of the season but left with a 5-2 lead, only to watch the relievers give it away. Chad Sobotka and Jesse Biddle didn't retire anyone as the Diamondbacks pushed across four runs in the seventh to reclaim the lead.

    After Ozzie Albies homered in the bottom half to tie the game at 6, Walker drove the second pitch from A.J. Minter (0-2) deep into the seats to start the ninth. Adam Jones brought home two insurance runs with a double that deflected off the glove of Acuna.

    Yoshihisa Hirano (1-1) claimed the win. Greg Holland picked up his third save.

    Acuna launched a 448-foot shot over the Braves' bullpen in right-center field. Walker went 3-for-4 with two RBIs. Eduardo Escobar also drove in two runs.

    BLUE JAYS 6, TWINS 5

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Teoscar Hernandez and Justin Smoak hit two-run singles as Toronto rallied past Minnesota.

    Hernandez singled off Twins reliever Trevor Hildenberger in the top of the seventh to give Toronto a 6-4 lead. Hernandez had capitalized against Minnesota's bullpen a day earlier, too, hitting a home run in the eighth inning that gave the Blue Jays a 5-3 win Monday.

    The game ended with the Twins' C.J. Cron getting thrown out at home plate. Cron tried to score from first base on a double to left field by Byron Buxton.

    Eddie Rosario hit a three-run home run and Jorge Polanco and Marwin Gonzalez also homered for the Twins.

    Aaron Sanchez (2-1) allowed four runs in six innings to earn the win for Toronto. Reliever Trevor May (1-1) was charged with the loss for Minnesota.

    BREWERS 8, CARDINALS 4

    MILWAUKEE (AP) - Christian Yelich hit a three-run homer, his eighth against St. Louis this season, to help send Milwaukee to the win.

    Lorenzo Cain and Yasmani Grandal each homered in a five-run third against Jack Flaherty (1-1), when the Brewers went up 5-0.

    Yelich's 427-foot homer to right center in the fifth inning was his ninth of the season and put Milwaukee up 8-0. He is the first player to homer in six consecutive games against the Cardinals. The Brewers have won nine of their last 10 against St. Louis, including four in a row.

    Brandon Woodruff (2-1) held the Cardinals scoreless until Marcell Ozuna's two-run homer, his seventh, with one out in the sixth. Woodruff allowed two runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings, striking out six.

    The Cardinals added two in the eighth on RBI singles by Yadier Molina and Kolten Wong.

    RANGERS 5, ANGELS 0

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Mike Minor threw a three-hitter for his first career shutout, backed by two-run homers by Joey Gallo and Asdrubal Cabrera, as Texas beat Los Angeles.

    Minor (2-1) limited Los Angeles to three singles while throwing 103 pitches with seven strikeouts and two walks.

    Cabrera put Texas up 3-0 when his deep fly appeared to ricochet of the wrist of leaping right fielder Kole Calhoun and go over the 8-foot wall in the fourth off Jaime Barria (1-1).

    Gallo pulled a 439-foot shot that landed on the concourse beyond the lower-level seats to greet reliever Dillon Peters in the sixth and make it 5-0.

    It was the sixth homer of the season for both Gallo and Cabrera.

    WHITE SOX 5, ROYALS 1

    CHICAGO (AP) - Yoan Moncada hit a pair of solo shots for his first multihomer game and Leury Garcia added a two-run drive to power Chicago past Kansas City.

    Yonder Alonso also homered and went 4 for 4 as the White Sox won for the fourth time in five games.

    Reynaldo Lopez (1-2) allowed one run and five hits in six innings. Four relievers worked the final three innings for Chicago.

    Lucas Duda homered for the Royals.

    Kansas City starter Jorge Lopez (0-2) had a career-high 10 strikeouts but gave up three homers and allowed four runs on eight hits in six innings.

    ROCKIES 8, PADRES 2

    SAN DIEGO (AP) - Nolan Arenado homered for the third straight game - a two-run shot on his 28th birthday - and Jon Gray pitched seven strong innings as Colorado beat San Diego for a two-game sweep and its first three-game winning streak of the season.

    Gray (1-3) allowed a home run in an NL-record 16th straight game when Wil Myers connected leading off the fifth, but otherwise tamed the Padres, who have lost three straight for the first time this season. Gray improved to 9-3 lifetime against San Diego by holding the Padres to one run and three hits while striking out five and walking three.

    Rookie Garrett Hampson hit his first career-homer and Raimel Tapia had a two-run triple for the Rockies.

    Charlie Blackmon hit an RBI double in the second and Tapia a two-run triple in the third. Trevor Story had a career-high three stolen bases.

    Wednesday’s 6-pack

    — There have been 210 NHL playoff series where a team led 3 games to 0:

    — Team leading 3-0 was 128-82 in Game 4 (now 130-82).

    — Team leading 3-1 was 59-23 in Game 5

    — Team leading 3-2 was 14-9 in Game 6.

    — Team that led 3-0 was 5-7 in Game 7.

    — Columbus/Islanders were underdogs that led series 3-0 this week.

    Quote of the Day
    “If you can’t hit the fastball, I can’t help you.”
    Unnamed hitting coach to Nomar Garciaparra, many years ago. He told the story on the air during the Dodger game last night.

    Wednesday’s quiz
    When Gerald Ford became President in 1974, who was his Vice President?

    Tuesday’s quiz
    Terry Francona has managed the Phillies, Red Sox and Indians.

    Monday’s quiz
    Russell Wilson played college football for NC State and Wisconsin.

    ***************************

    Wednesday’s List of 13: Mid-week musings…….

    13) 4:50am late Monday night/early Tuesday morning, my phone starts beeping; figured some other terrible thing must’ve happened in the world, but instead they announced that Russell Wilson signed a 4-year, $140M extension with the Seahawks.

    At 4:50am, 1:50am in Seattle.

    I’m guessing they could’ve waited a couple of more hours to announce it, but no……

    12) Tennessee basketball coach Rick Barnes was asked directly if he would have left for UCLA if the Bruins had covered his $8M buyout: “I think I would have been the coach at UCLA.”

    Why would he say that now, if he was happy in Knoxville? Once he turned down the UCLA job, why would he talk about it again?

    11) Baseball injuries:
    — Tampa Bay Rays’ ace Blake Snell (toe) goes on the IL- Apparently a granite pole fell on his foot in his bathroom at home. Seriously.
    — Brewers put P Freddy Peralta (shoulder) on the IL.

    10) When Golden State led the Clippers by 31 points Monday night, some courageous (or drunk) person in Las Vegas wagered $50 on the Clippers to win the game SU, at 100-1 odds. He/she collected $5,000 when the Clippers won, which buys a lot of alcohol.

    9) As of Tuesday at 2pm, there were 683 college basketball players in the transfer portal; with 353 D-I college basketball teams, that works out to 1.93 players per team, and it is a big part of what is hurting the quality of play in college basketball.

    There is so little continuity from year to year; look at Nevada, which just hired Steve Alford to replace Eric Musselman. Right now, Nevada has zero players who will be eligible to play when the season starts in November. Not one. None. Bupkis.

    8) In 2013, Aaron Rodgers signed a deal that pays him $23M a year, and ate up 17.9% of the Packers’ salary cap. In 2019, Seattle just signed Russell Wilson to a $35M a year contract that will eat up 18.7% of the Seahawks’ salary cap.

    7) Phillies 14, Mets 3— Phillies scored eight runs in this game before they made an out; Mets made four errors in first inning. This was only 2nd time ever the Mets allowed 10+ runs in the first inning, other time coming in July 1988.

    Steven Matz is first MLB pitcher since Paul Wilson in 2005 to allow eight runs without getting anyone out, although the shortstop did make two errors behind him.

    If you like to plan ahead, baseball’s 2026 All-Star Game will be held in Philadelphia, to help commemorate our country’s 250th birthday.

    6) New York 8, Boston 0— Chris Sale is now 0-4, 8.50 this season; Boston is paying him $15M this year, then $164M more from 2020-25.

    Red Sox found a scapegoat for their 6-11 start when they DFA’d catcher Blake Swihart Tuesday afternoon, and brought Sandy Leon back to the majors.

    5) Cardinals’ 1B Paul Goldschmidt hit his 7th home run Monday night; he hit 7th home run last year on May 30. St Louis has a very potent lineup.

    4) Columbus Blue Jackets have been in NHL for 19 years, had never won a playoff series, until they beat Tampa Bay 7-3 last night and swept the Lightning. Tampa Bay had 30 more points than the Blue Jackets this season, had the NHL’s best record.

    This is a big reason why the NHL playoffs are better than the NBA’s version; #8-seeds can and often do win playoff series. Hardly ever happens in the NBA.

    3) Temple/USC will start a home/home basketball series this fall, with the Owls visiting the Galen Center this year, with the Trojans coming to Philly in the fall of 2020.

    USC poached grad transfer Daniel Otumi away from the Akron Zips; Otumi averaged 14.2 ppg LY and shot 37% behind the arc.

    2) Most baseball strategy is fairly cut/dry, but one gray area that gets people’s blood boiling is when a game is tied going to bottom of 8th or 9th inning; does the visiting team use its closer with the game tied to keep the game alive, and then use a lesser pitcher to close the game if they get the lead later on, or do they hold the closer back for when they (hopefully) get the lead?

    It is an interesting question; pitchers are so pampered these days, managers more and more see the big picture instead of just today’s game.

    We’re a long way from 1980, when the A’s had there different starting pitchers throw 14-inning complete games, because the Oakland relievers back then weren’t very good.

    1) NFL Draft is a week from tomorrow; I’m tired of mock drafts, which are nothing but fake news that we learn nothing from. The draft is a fascinating process, but having media people guess multiple times at what is going to happen is simply a waste of time.

    NO ONE KNOWS what is going to happen; thats why it is so interesting.

    LEADING OFF: Cards decked by Yelich, Snell hurts toe at home
    April 17, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    A look at what's happening around the majors Wednesday:

    DECKED!

    Michael Wacha and the Cardinals will try to figure out a way to finally get Christian Yelich out. The reigning NL MVP has eight homers against St. Louis already this season, including three on Monday and a three-run shot Tuesday. Yelich is the first player to homer in six consecutive games versus the Cardinals. ''It's almost like he's psychic,'' St. Louis manager Mike Shildt said this week. Heading into the series finale, the Brewers have won nine of their last 10 against the Cardinals, including four in a row. Wacha allowed three homers over 3 2/3 innings in his last start but is 5-0 in 12 career games against Milwaukee. Yelich has 14 homers in 22 games vs. St. Louis since joining the Brewers last season - 12 of them in 16 meetings at Miller Park.

    MISHAP AT HOME

    Blake Snell, the 2018 AL Cy Young Award winner, thinks he might miss just one start after breaking a toe on his right foot at home Sunday night. Tampa Bay's ace left-hander got hurt when he stepped out of the shower and then attempted to move a large granite item. He said it was a ''really dumb'' move. ''It's like a three-piece set and this pole that comes up like 2 1/2, 3 feet. Went to move it, I lifted it up and it wasn't glued to the pole and the pole came crushing down,'' Snell explained. Snell is 2-1 with a 2.16 ERA in four starts this season. He was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday and is eligible to return April 24.

    HELP WANTED

    Cincinnati right-hander Sonny Gray, who grew up rooting for the Reds, looks to avoid the bad luck that's plagued his first three starts for them when he takes the mound at Dodger Stadium. Gray has a 2.03 ERA but is 0-2. The Reds were shut out in his first two outings, and in his most recent start, he took a line drive off his left calf and lasted only four innings. Walker Buehler (1-0, 8.25) starts for Los Angeles in the finale of a three-game series that marked Yasiel Puig's return to LA.

    COMING UP EMPTY


    He's not quite in Chris Davis territory yet, but Daniel Palka is really struggling. Palka, who led the White Sox with 27 homers as a rookie last season, is hitless in 32 at-bats this year. He is 0 for 34 dating to 2018, the longest current skid for a major league position player.

    BIRD DOGGED

    Greg Bird is back on the injured list for the banged-up Yankees, and that means more opportunities at first base for breakout slugger Luke Voit. Bird has a left plantar fascia tear, and manager Aaron Boone expects the left-handed hitter will miss at least a month. It's the fourth straight year Bird has been injured early in the season, including when he missed all of 2016 following shoulder surgery. He has never played more than 82 major league games in a year. New York (7-9) goes for a two-game sweep of the rival Red Sox (6-12) after James Paxton's dominant outing in an 8-0 rout Tuesday night. J.A. Happ (0-2, 8.76 ERA) faces Boston righty Nathan Eovaldi (0-0, 8.40).

    STILL SEARCHING

    Matt Harvey (0-1, 10.05 ERA) is looking for his first win with the Angels. The former Mets ace, who spent most of last season with Cincinnati, makes his fourth start for Los Angeles in the finale of a three-game series at Texas. Harvey has already faced the Rangers once this year, allowing eight runs and 10 hits over four innings April 4 in losing his home debut with the Angels, who won the other two games the right-hander has started. He gave up six runs and seven hits in 4 1/3 innings against Milwaukee during his last start, also at home.
