Sun May 2720:25Tanaka pitches Yankees past Angels 3-1
NEW YORK (AP) — Masahiro Tanaka pitched six sharp innings and struck out Japanese countryman Shohei Ohtani twice as the New York Yankees defeated the Los Angeles Angels 3-1 Sunday.Brett Gardner had three hits for New York, which won five of six against the Angels this season.Although Ohtani was pushed back from Sunday's scheduled start due to what the Angels called "workload management," Tanaka (6-2) held up his end up of the highly anticipated pitchers' duel that never materialized. Tanaka struck out eight and allowed just Andrelton Simmons' sixth-inning home run in his longest outing in nearly a month.Pitching on his 30th birthday, Angels right-hander Garrett Richards (4-4) allowed three runs over 2 1/3 innings and matched a season high with five walks.Aroldis Chapman walked Ohtani to begin the ninth, but struck out a pair to earn his 10th save in 11 chances.BRAVES 7, RED SOX 1BOSTON (AP) — Prized rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. took a high-flying tumble while beating out an infield hit,...

Tue Apr 1712:30Twins, Indians getting 26th players for Puerto Rico
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Cleveland and Minnesota are both carrying a 26th player on their rosters for their two-game series in Puerto Rico.The Indians recalled outfielder Greg Allen from Triple-A Columbus, a move made official on Tuesday. Allen was on the team's flight to San Juan. He batted .229 in 25 games for Cleveland late last season.For the Twins, the extra player is outfielder Ryan LaMarre, brought up from Triple-A Rochester.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Rajai Davis made it all the way back with the Cleveland Indians. Mike Napoli remains on the outside.Davis, who hit perhaps the most memorable home run in club history during the 2016 World Series, was told Thursday by manager Terry Francona that he will be on Cleveland's opening-day roster. The 37-year-old outfielder signed a minor league contract with the club last month.With Michael Brantley and Brandon Guyer still not at 100 percent while recovering from surgeries, the Indians needed depth. Davis has filled a need and the Indians are thrilled to have him around."Raj looks like Raj," Francona said. "He does an amazing job at age 37 getting to his full speed. ... We had to play him quite a bit because we wanted to get a good look at him. It's a pretty good test for a 37-year old in spring training. He bounced back really well. I think he has the freedom to be himself. That's a good thing. We all feel that he has the chance to help us win."Davis cemented his na... [More]
