Brad Ziegler gave up a home run to Cody Bellinger in the ninth but earned his sixth save.Dodgers infielders Justin Turner and Logan Forsythe were activated from the disabled list but couldn't spark the defending NL champions, who have scored 11 runs during their skid.PADRES 4, ROCKIES 0SAN DIEGO (AP) — Jordan Lyles came (1-1) within five out...

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle already knew Robinson Cano would be out of the Mariners lineup for several weeks, the result of a broken bone in his right hand.His absence will be significantly longer.The All-Star second baseman was suspended for 80 games on Tuesday for violating baseball's drug agreement, becoming among the most prominent players disciplined under the sport's anti-doping rules.Major League Baseball's announcement was a stunning development for a middle-of-the-lineup stalwart and a club expected to contend for a postseason spot. Cano tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic that can be used to mask performance-enhancing drugs.In a statement released through the players' association, Cano said, "This substance was given to me by a licensed doctor in the Dominican Republic to treat a medical ailment."

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona's already sputtering offense has taken a severe hit: center fielder A.J. Pollock is expected to miss four-to-eight weeks with a broken left thumb.Pollock was injured diving unsuccessfully for Tyler Saladino's line drive that turned into an inside-the-park home run in the ninth inning of Monday's 7-2 loss to Milwaukee.Manager Torey Lovullo said Tuesday that Pollock has an avulsion fracture, which occurs where a tendon or ligament attaches to the bone.The 30-year-old Pollock leads the team with a .293 average, 11 home runs and 33 RBIs. He was an All-Star in 2015 but has not played more than 112 games in a season since because of injuries."It's tough to lose anybody," Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen said, "but A.J., the way he was playing, it's a pretty big blow. But nobody's going to feel sorry for us. We've got to pick up and move on."Pollock, who becomes a free agent after this season, missed all but 12 games in 2016 after fracturing his elbow in a head...

SEATTLE (AP) — Adrian Beltre's return from the disabled list lasted just five games.The Texas Rangers put the third baseman back on the DL on Tuesday, two days after he aggravated his left hamstring injury.Rangers assistant general manager Josh Boyd said Texas was awaiting results of Beltre's MRI and could not project a recovery period.

"I guess stay tuned. I know he's hungry. He feels the best he's felt in a long time."Drury hit .315 with two home runs and seven RBIs in 11 games with Scranton and six with Double-A Trenton as part of the rehab assignment."He's absolutely an option for us right now," manager Aaron Boone ...
