Wed May 2921:48Royals' Sparkman ejected after beaning Chicago's Anderson
CHICAGO (AP) — Kansas City Royals starter Glenn Sparkman has been ejected for hitting Chicago's Tim Anderson in the helmet with a pitch.Sparkman struck Anderson in the bill of his helmet in the second inning Wednesday night with nobody out, a runner on first and the White Sox leading 2-1. Anderson's helmet was knocked off his head, and plate umpire Mark Carlson immediately ejected the 27-year-old right-hander.It was Anderson's first at-bat of the series. He wasn't in the lineup the previous four games because of right wrist soreness.Last month, Anderson was hit by Kansas City's Brad Keller in the backside after an elaborate bat flip on a home run in his previous at-bat. That sparked a benches-clearing scuffle. Keller was suspended five games and Anderson for one.Sparkman was making his second start of the season.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

NEW YORK (AP) — Something figured to stop Christian Yelich's historic home run pace — and a balky lower back might just do it.The way things have been going, it certainly wasn't going to be an opposing pitcher.Yelich has carried over his outrageous finish to the 2018 season — one that ended with the Milwaukee Brewers winning the NL Central and Yelich earning his first NL MVP award — with an equally stunning start to 2019.The 27-year-old outfielder hit his 14th homer Saturday during an 8-6 win over the Mets, a shot that tied him with Albert Pujols (2006) and Alex Rodríguez (2007) for most through the first full month of a season.

Sat Apr 2020:54Amid plunking debate, MLB's marketing is all-in on bat flips
NEW YORK (AP) — When Tim Anderson spiked his bat and yelled toward his White Sox teammates, Major League Baseball's self-described "spicy" Twitter account was among the first to weigh in."LET THE KIDS PLAY," proclaimed @Cut4 , the offbeat arm of MLB's social media portfolio with nearly 1 million followers. The tweet Wednesday included video of Anderson's bat toss, and it sparked hundreds of comments — some cheering the fiery display, some condemning it.Baseball is stuck in an ongoing debate regarding on-field decorum, and MLB's marketing department is leaving no doubt where it stands. Since the group was restructured just over a year ago, MLB's promotional efforts have taken up arms against the old school. While traditionalists want to punish unabashed revelry with fastballs to the backside, MLB senior vice president of marketing Barbara McHugh wants her team feting those bat flips."That's certainly what we're trying to celebrate," McHugh told The Associated Press on Wednesday, hou...
