    LEADING OFF: Martinez, Pudge tributes, Baker nears Bochy
    August 11, 2017

    A look at what's happening all around the majors Saturday:


    CATCH HIM IF YOU CAN

    Dusty Baker of the Nationals has posted 1,834 wins as a major league manager, one behind Bruce Bochy of San Francisco. Baker can even the tally when Washington hosts the Giants, a day after their series opener was rained out.

    ''We enjoy our battles and being competitive against each other,'' Bochy said.

    EDGAR'S ELEVEN

    Former Mariners star and current Seattle hitting coach Edgar Martinez will have his No. 11 retired by the team before it plays the Angels at Safeco Field. Martinez spent all 18 of his major league seasons with the Mariners. He hit .312 with a .418 on-base percentage, with 309 home runs and 1,219 RBIs. Martinez will be the second Seattle to have his number retired, joining Ken Griffey Jr. and his No. 24.

    PUDGE'S PRIME

    Ivan Rodriguez is set to have his No. 7 retired before Texas hosts Houston. The tribute comes two weeks after the star catcher was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Only two others who wore Texas jerseys have had their numbers retired - pitcher Nolan Ryan's 34 and manager Johnny Oates' 26.

    HOT HOT HOT


    The AL East-leading Red Sox and runner-up New York both start streaking pitchers at Yankee Stadium. Luis Severino has won four straight starts and is unbeaten in his last six outings for the Yankees, while Boston lefty Drew Pomeranz is 5-0 in his last eight starts.

    WHAT NEXT?

    The Red Sox expect to decide the next step for David Price, who hasn't pitched since July 22 because of inflammation in his left elbow. Price began the season on the DL because of his elbow, was activated May 29 and went 5-3 with a 3.82 ERA in 11 starts.

    Saturday’s six-pack

    — 96 major leaguers have been on the DL more than once this season.

    — White Sox 6, Royals 3- KC has followed 9-game win streak with a 2-10 skid.

    — Mets 7, Phillies 6— Amed Rosario’s first MLB homer was the game-winner.

    — Marlins 6, Rockies 3— Giancarlo Stanton hit his 40th home run.

    — Dolphins’ QB Ryan Tannehill will have knee surgery, is done for the season.

    — DL happenings:

    Cubs’ C Willson Contreras (hamstring) is expected to be out 4-6 weeks.

    New York P CC Sabathia (knee) goes on the 10-day DL.

    Seattle P James Paxton (pectoral) goes on the 10-day DL

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

    Saturday’s List of 13: Random stuff with weekend here……..

    13) Buffalo Bills had an active Friday; they traded WR Sammy Watkins and a 2018 6th-round pick to the Rams, getting CB E.J. Gaines and an ’18 2nd-round pick in return.

    They also traded CB Ronald Darby to the Eagles for WR Jordan Matthews and a 2018 3rd-round pick. Buffalo now has six picks in the first three rounds of the 2018 draft.

    In 2014, Bills traded two first-round draft picks to move up and acquire Watkins ahead of Mike Evans, Odell Beckham, Jr. Oy.

    12) Dallas Cowboys’ RB Ezekiel Elliott was suspended by the NFL for six games; Dallas has a Week 6 bye, so Elliott can return for the Week 8 game with the Redskins.

    11) Indians @ Rays Thursday night; attendance was 9,533
    Indians @ Rays Friday night; attendance was 16,794

    When the Rays move to Canada and become the Montreal Expos, this is why…….

    10) Eagles’ backup QB Matt McGloin was 28-42 passing in Green Bay Thursday; lot of passes for a third-string QB to throw in an exhibition game.

    9) Chicago Bears have a veteran QB trying to hold off a first-round draft pick, with a head coach on the hot seat. Sound familiar?

    The 2016 Rams had a veteran QB (Case Keenum) trying to hold off a first-round draft pick (Jared Goff), with a head coach on the hot seat (Jeff Fisher).

    Hope this season works out better for Coach Fox than last year did for Jeff Fisher.

    8) Didn’t help Chicago’s new QB Mike Glennon when he threw a pick-6 0:48 into the Bears’ first preseason game, Thursday vs Denver. People are not patient in today’s world.

    7) One of the prettiest plays of the weekend was Miami backup QB David Fales throwing a 99-yard TD to Damore’ea Stringfellow, an undrafted free agent from Ole Miss.

    6) Golfer Patrick Cantlay eagled the 7th hole at the PGA Thursday and Friday. Hard to do.

    5) Dodgers started this season 10-12; they’re 71-21 since. LA was 9-11 when they called Cody Bellinger up to the big leagues on April 25- you do the math.

    4) Houston Astros were 58-27 in their first 85 games, with a 3.91 team ERA.
    Since then, they’re 13-16, with a 5.20 team ERA.

    3) Cardinals’ pitcher Lance Lynn got drilled in the top of his head by a line drive hit by Lorenzo Cain Thursday night, but he stayed in the game and pitched six innings. St Louis swept four games from Kansas City- they hit grand slams in consecutive games Wednesday/Thursday for the first time in six years.

    2) Jeffrey Loria has apparently sold the Miami Marlins for $1.25B, thats billion, with a B, to a group of 16 investors, most famous of which is Derek Jeter, who will run the baseball side. Fans in Miami are better off without Loria.

    1) Over the last seven years, A’s/Nationals have made ten separate trades; it is almost like your local fantasy league, where certain people only trade with certain other people.

    But in a business where teams are worth $1B or so, or more, do teams really do each other favors when one team is in contention and the other isn’t?

    On July 16, the A’s sent Sean Doolittle/Ryan Madson to bullpen-starved Washington- the Nationals also added Brandon Kintzler from the Twins. Problem solved for Washington.

    When the A’s needed a catcher in 2013, all of a sudden Kurt Suzuki fell into their lap, a gift from the Nationals. It helps to have friends.

    MLB roundup: Benintendi fuels Red Sox past Yankees
    August 12, 2017


    NEW YORK -- Andrew Benintendi continued his torrid month by hitting two three-run homers as the Boston Red Sox posted a 10-5 victory over the New York Yankees on Saturday.

    Benintendi tied a career high with six RBIs by homering in consecutive at-bats off Luis Severino (9-5) when Boston scored five times in the third and fifth innings.

    It was Benintendi's third career multi-homer game. In his last eight games, he is batting .484 (15-for-31) with four homers and 11 RBIs after hitting .222 during July.

    Mookie Betts added a two-run single and rookie Rafael Devers hit a two-run double as the Red Sox won for the ninth time in 10 games and moved 4 1/2 games ahead of the Yankees in the American League East.

    Blue Jays 7, Pirates 2

    TORONTO -- Chris Rowley has made the unusual transition from West Point graduate to a major league pitcher and allowed one run in 5 1/3 innings in Toronto's victory over Pittsburgh.

    The 26-year-old signed a minor league contract with the Blue Jays in 2013 after he was not drafted before embarking on his U.S. Army commitment.

    Rob Refsnyder had three hits for Toronto, which gained a split of the first two games of the three-game interleague series.

    Indians 3, Rays 0


    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Jay Bruce drove in his first two runs since joining Cleveland, helping his new team to a win over Tampa Bay.

    Bruce had an RBI bloop double in the first inning and an RBI single in the sixth, accounting for the only RBIs for the Indians. Cleveland starter Mike Clevinger (6-4) held the Rays to four hits in seven innings, striking out nine batters while walking only one.

    Tampa Bay dropped to .500 for the first time since June 16, and the Rays were shut out for the second straight night and the fifth time in eight games. They've scored just eight runs in those eight games, the lowest-scoring eight-game stretch in the franchise's 20-year history.

    Diamondbacks 6, Cubs 2

    PHOENIX -- Brandon Drury's two-run double keyed a four-run sixth inning that broke up Jon Lester's pitching duel with Patrick Corbin, and Arizona ended a three-game losing streak by beating Chicago.

    Corbin (9-11) was coming off two successive rough starts that included a 16-4 loss to Chicago in which he allowed eight runs in three innings. On Saturday, he consistently shut down Cubs threats while scattering five hits in 6 2/3 scoreless innings.

    Arizona had dropped five of six before Saturday's victory. Archie Bradley followed with 1 1/3 scoreless innings, but closer Fernando Rodney gave up Kris Bryant's two-run single in the ninth to end the shutout. David Hernandez came on to strike out Ben Zobrist with two runners on for his second save of the season and first with Arizona.

    Cardinals 6, Braves 5

    ST. LOUIS -- Paul DeJong and Randal Grichuk each homered to support Carlos Martinez's six solid innings as surging St. Louis edged Atlanta.

    DeJong's team-leading 17th homer in the bottom of the seventh finished the scoring for St. Louis, which was held below eight runs for the first time since a 4-1 win on Aug. 5 in Cincinnati.

    Martinez (9-9) allowed seven hits and three runs in winning his second straight start, walking one and striking out seven. Tyler Lyons followed with two scoreless innings out of the bullpen and Trevor Rosenthal survived a shaky ninth for his 11th save.

    Royals 5, White Sox 4

    CHICAGO -- Melky Cabrera hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning and Kansas City held on for a win over Chicago.

    Eric Hosmer also homered as Kansas City snapped a five-game losing streak. Jose Abreu hit two solo home runs to lead the White Sox at the plate. Leury Garcia drove in two runs for Chicago, which had its four-game winning streak end.

    Cabrera stung his former team with a two-run shot to erase a 4-3 deficit in the eighth. He lifted a low pitch to the opposite field for his 16th homer of the year and his third since Kansas City acquired him from Chicago. Scott Alexander (3-3) posted the win in relief.

    Tigers 12, Twins 11


    DETROIT -- Justin Upton drilled a walk-off, two-run homer with nobody out in the bottom of the ninth inning to give Detroit a comeback victory that snapped Minnesota's six-game winning streak.

    Mikie Mahtook lined a single to right-center field off reliever Matt Belisle (0-2) to start the ninth and Upton followed with his 22nd home run off a 2-1 fastball. Detroit blew a 5-0 first-inning lead and trailed 11-6 in the seventh before mounting its comeback.

    Joe Mauer hit a three-run double and added a two-run homer to drive in five runs for Minnesota. Jose Iglesias hit a two-run homer, his fourth home run of the year, in the eighth inning after James McCann reached a career-best five RBIs by hitting into a forceout with runners on first and third. McCann's grand slam in the first put the Tigers on top 5-0.

    Marlins 4, Rockies 3

    MIAMI -- Giancarlo Stanton, who leads the majors in homers, drilled a tiebreaking, three-run shot to left field to lead Miami over Colorado.

    Stanton has 41 homers, one short of the franchise season record set by Gary Sheffield in 1996. Stanton has 20 homers in the past 32 games.

    Former Marlins manager Mike Redmond, now a bench coach for Colorado, directed the Rockies. The Rockies announced that manager Bud Black missed the game because he was "under the weather." Charlie Blackmon led Colorado with four hits and two steals.

    Brewers 6, Reds 5

    MILWAUKEE -- Eric Sogard scored on an 10th-inning wild pitch as Milwaukee snapped a six-game losing streak by beating Cincinnati.

    The Brewers and Reds combined for six homers, with each side hitting three. Milwaukee's Eric Thames tied it in the sixth with his team-leading 27th homer of the season.

    Corey Knebel (1-2) worked around a one-out single in the top of the 10th, giving his offense one more shot. The Brewers loaded the bases with two outs against Tim Adleman (5-10), whose 0-2 curveball to Ryan Braun got past catcher Tucker Barnhart, allowing Sogard to slide home with the winning run.

    Phillies 3, Mets 1

    PHILADELPHIA -- Aaron Nola stifled New York for seven innings, allowing one earned run and two hits while striking out eight in Philadelphia's come-from-behind victory.

    Nola (9-7, 3.02 ERA) is one of the hottest pitchers in baseball, posting a 1.71 ERA in his last 10 starts.

    Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes crushed the only bad pitch from Nola, a 2-1 curveball, deep over the left field fence to give New York a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning. Cespedes continues to swing a hot bat in Philadelphia. His 10 home runs in 18 games at Citizens Bank Park are the most he has in any visiting ballpark.

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

    Sunday’s List of 13: Clearing out a cluttered mind…….

    13) There is only one cut in the NFL this summer, from 90 to 53 players on Labor Day weekend, which means that 1,184 guys will hit the streets all at once, and lesser teams will scurry around and try to improve their roster by adding guys the better teams release.

    12) I’m thinking it hurts HBO’s Hard Knocks some that there is one less cut date; that is the best part of the program, watching coaches tell guys they didn’t make the team. Sad for the player but compelling TV— lot of times those players move on and play for other teams anyway.

    11) St Louis Cardinals are first team to score 8+ runs in six straight wins since ’06 Braves.

    10) Cardinals-Pirates are playing a game in Williamsport, PA next weekend, five miles from where the Little League World Series takes place.

    Williamsport has a team in the Class A NY-Penn League, so there is a stadium in place there, unlike last year, when Marlins-Braves played a game on a military base in South Carolina, where a stadium was basically built for that game.

    9) Tampa Bay Bucs traded up to draft Florida State kicker Roberto Aguayo in the 2016 Draft, but he’s been a disappointment and been beaten out by Nick Folk. Aguayo missed an extra point and a 47-year old FG Friday night— he got cut Saturday, which should make for an interesting scene on Hard Knocks Tuesday night.

    8) If you’re not contending for a Wild Card spot in the American League, your team stinks, because some of the contending teams aren’t very good.

    7) Pat O’Hara is a QB coach for the Houston Texans; he was in the terrific football movie Any Given Sunday, playing Dennis Quaid’s backup QB who also gets hurt, which forces Jamie Foxx’s (#3 QB) character into the game, where he becomes a star.

    In real life, O’Hara was mostly a backup QB at USC; he played for seven different Arena League teams and has had a very interesting career. NFL Films should do a feature on him.

    6) Total plays run from scrimmage in last February’s Super Bowl: Patriots 93, Falcons 46.

    5) Cincinnati Bengal fans should be slow to criticize coach Marvin Lewis, who is 118-110-3 in 14 years as the Bengals’ coach, From 1984-2002, before Lewis took over, Cincy went 116-192 under four different head coaches. Be careful what you ask for……..

    4) Denver Broncos have only one road game in the first six weeks this season; they have a bye and four home games, then play on road in Weeks 7-9, with a Week 8 Monday night game, then a Week 9 game in Philly six days later. Unusual schedule; Denver has a new head coach and very little experience at quarterback.

    3) Consider the career of former NFL QB Tony Banks:
    — From 1996-98, Banks went 14-29 as QB of the Rams. When they cut him loose after 1998, they won the Super Bowl in ’99 behind Kurt Warner, who backed up Banks in ’98.

    — In 2000, Banks started the first eight games for the Ravens, going 5-3, but Games 7-8 were 10-3/14-6 losses, so Banks was replaced by Trent Dilfer……and the Ravens won the Super Bowl.

    I’ll leave the facts there and let you make your own judgments.

    2) Gregg Williams is the new defensive coordinator in Cleveland; he has his son Blake back on the coaching staff this year. Blake Williams was on the Rams’ coaching staff as linebackers’ coach in 2012, the year Gregg Williams was suspended by the NFL because of Bountygate, but apparently the other coaches couldn’t stand young Williams and he was shown the door.

    1) If I was an NFL head coach (a frightening thought), my team would go for it on 4th down a lot and go for 2 after every TD in exhibition games. Games don’t matter; it is a good chance to get more plays to evaluate your players. Thats what these exhibition games and mainly for….that and ripping off fans who pay regular season prices to watch games that don’t matter.

    MLB notebook: Yankees place Tanaka on DL
    August 12, 2017


    The New York Yankees placed right-hander Masahiro Tanaka on the 10-day disabled list Saturday because of right shoulder inflammation.

    Tanaka, 28, has battled elbow injuries over the last two years. The move is retroactive to Thursday.

    "We had him talk to our doctor," manager Joe Girardi told reporters prior to Saturday afternoon's game against the Boston Red Sox. "Our doctor prescribed that he's fatigued and he's probably got some inflammation. Nothing structural."

    Tanaka (8-10, 4.92 ERA) last pitched on Wednesday in a poor outing against the Blue Jays, walking a career-high five batters and allowing three runs -- two earned -- and two hits in four-plus innings in the Yankees' 11-5 win in Toronto.

    --Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia returned to the 10-day disabled list with left knee inflammation after just one game and four at-bats.

    Prior to Saturday afternoon's game against the New York Yankees, the Red Sox announced the move, retroactive to Aug. 9. Pedroia is on the DL for a third time this season. Manager John Farrell said there is no reason to believe Pedroia is lost for the season.

    "There's nothing we have right now that suggests he won't be back to us," Farrell said. "There's been no talk of any other kind of procedure, anything that's similar to what he went through after last season. I felt like he was getting there after the work. Obviously the irritation returned and he needs some more time at this point."

    Farrell said Pedroia, 34, has been dealing with a recurrence of swelling and inflammation in his surgically repaired left knee and did not respond favorably to treatment. Pedroia leads the Red Sox in batting average (.303) and on-base percentage (.378), with 17 doubles, six home runs and 54 RBIs.

    --Washington Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg is expected to start a rehab assignment Monday.

    Strasburg, who has been on the disabled list since July 27 with a nerve impingement in his right elbow, told reporters Saturday that he will make a start Monday at Class A Potomac.

    The 29-year-old Strasburg threw 57 pitches in a simulated game on Wednesday and said the elbow "feels really good." Nationals pitching coach Mike Maddux said that Strasburg is slated for five innings or 75 pitches Monday.

    Strasburg (10-3, 3.25 ERA) has been sidelined since pitched two scoreless innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks on July 23. He went on the disabled list four days later.

    --The Toronto Blue Jays placed catcher Russell Martin on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left oblique and selected the contract of catcher Mike Ohlman from Triple-A Buffalo.

    Martin left the game Friday night after the first inning when he grounded out. He is batting .223/.354/.381 with 12 home runs and 27 RBIs in 81 games this season.

    In five games with the Blue Jays this year, Ohlman is 2-for-9 (.222) with an RBI. He will share the catching duties with Raffy Lopez.

    --Right-hander Scott Feldman of the Cincinnati Reds was reinstated from the disabled list, and he started Saturday's day against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

    The 34-year-old Feldman, who entered the game with a 7-7 record and a 4.34 ERA in 19 starts this season, went on the disabled list because of right knee inflammation on July 18.

    To make room on the roster for Feldman, the Reds designated infielder/outfielder Arismendy Alcantara for assignment.

    --Pittsburgh Pirates right fielder Gregory Polanco left with a leg injury in the fifth inning of Saturday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

    Polanco limped off the field after charging a bloop single by Josh Donaldson in the bottom of the fifth.

    Sean Rodriguez entered the game to play left field and John Jaso moved from left field to right

    LEADING OFF: Scherzer vs. Giants, Kuechel vs. Rangers
    August 12, 2017

    A look at what's happening all around the majors Sunday:


    NIGHT MOVES

    Max Scherzer will start the second game of the Washington Nationals' day-night doubleheader against the San Francisco Giants on Sunday, well, because he feels like it. Manager Dusty Baker said Scherzer preferred to pitch at night, so the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner will get the ball for the 7:05 p.m. start after A.J. Cole starts at 1:05 p.m. ''You have to kind of acquiesce to what the aces want to do,'' Baker said. ''And until the other guys are aces, they have to adjust to your aces.''

    ---

    RIVALS

    Houston lefty Dallas Keuchel faces Texas while trying to bounce back from his first two losses of the season, making his fourth start since returning from his second stint on the DL caused by a neck injury. He pitched six shutout innings in his only start against the Rangers this season, a 7-1 win on June 2. That was his last start before spending nearly two months on the DL. Keuchel allowed eight runs and 10 hits in four innings in his last start, an 8-5 defeat to the Chicago White Sox that started the Astros' season-high four-game losing streak.

    ---

    ROLLING PITCHERS

    Two pitchers who have been on a roll face off when the Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks close a three-game series. Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta is 4-2 with a 2.18 ERA in seven starts since July 2, while Diamondbacks right-hander Zack Godley is 2-0 with a 1.37 ERA over his last three starts.

    ---

    UNDER THE LIGHTS

    Left-hander Chris Sale leads the majors with 229 strikeouts going into Sunday night's start at Yankee Stadium. He is 3-0 in his last five starts - he hasn't given up a run in four of them. Left-hander Jordan Montgomery is scheduled to start for New York, a day after he was hit on the head by a fly ball while he signed autographs as the Red Sox took batting practice. He bled from a cut on his ear.
