Osuna was sidelined on Aug. 2, and this roster move guarantees he won't return until mid-September. The 25-year-old was removed from an outing against the Los Angeles Angels on Aug. 1 and sent for an MRI. After Osuna was placed on the IL with right elbow soreness, sources told Mark Berman of Fox the initial diagnosis indicated a need for Tommy John surgery.

  Tucker drives in 4 runs to lead Astros over Angels 9-6 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Houston manager Dusty Baker will take any wins he can get, even if they provide some anxiety. The Astros had a season-high 13 hits in their 9-6 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night, but it was far from a picturesque opening to their 10-game road trip. Six Houston pitchers issued 12 walks, but the defence turned three double plays and were able to respond to Angels' rallies with response runs. “Right now we are scuffling for victories. That was a tough one all the way down to the end.

MLB: Wild fight between Oakland and Houston

 MLB: Wild fight between Oakland and Houston Between the Oakland Athletics and Houston Astros the tatters flew on Sunday. The trigger was a second hit-by-pitch against A's outfielder Ramon Laureano, who then stormed towards the guests' dugout and triggered a fight. © Provided by SPOX The Oakland A's and Houston Astros had a wild brawl after a hit-by-pitch against Ramon Laureano.

Morrow, last seen giving up four runs in six pitches in Houston two nights earlier, appeared for the 13th time in the Dodgers' 14 postseason games. Verlander's fateful stretch in the sixth, which wound up saddling him with the loss, pivoted around a 59-foot slider that bounced and hit Chase Utley in the leg.

Some people will shrug off the illness quickly, but for others it could leave lasting This tends to happen about seven to 10 days into the infection. The transformation can be sudden.

TWINS 3, INDIANS 0

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Miguel Sanó homered twice and Kenta Maeda pitched six scoreless innings in his home debut for Minnesota.

Eddie Rosario added a solo homer for the Twins, who got another strong start from a veteran newcomer to its starting rotation. Maeda (2-0) retired 13 of the first 14 batters he faced and didn’t allow a hit until Bradley Zimmer beat out a weak ground ball to second base in the fifth inning.

Carlos Carrasco (1-1) gave up six hits in six innings for Cleveland and was done in by three solo home runs from the Twins.

Maeda, acquired in an off-season trade from the Dodgers, was one of three key additions to strengthen Minnesota’s rotation along with Rich Hill and Homer Bailey.

Baker: Verlander 'not progressing as quickly' from forearm injury

  Baker: Verlander 'not progressing as quickly' from forearm injury Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker said Saturday that ace Justin Verlander's recovery from a forearm strain is going slower than expected. "Verlander, to my knowledge, is not progressing as quickly as he'd like to," Baker said, according to Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle. "But does he ever? Verlander wanted to pitch yesterday." The reigning AL Cy Young winner refuted a report late last month that he wouldn't pitch again in 2020 due to"Verlander, to my knowledge, is not progressing as quickly as he'd like to," Baker said, according to Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle.

Josh Tomlin (1-0) pitched 2 1/3 perfect innings with three strikeouts for the win.

WHITE SOX 11, ROYALS 5

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Gio Gonzalez made his first start for the hot-hitting Chicago White Sox more than 16 years after they drafted him, and the veteran responded by holding the Kansas City Royals scoreless into the fourth inning.

Eloy Jimenez hit a three-run homer and finished with a career-high four hits, and rookie Luis Robert had four hits while finishing a triple shy of the cycle, leading a White Sox barrage of 21 hits in all. Leury Garcia also pounded out four hits, Yoan Moncada added three and Yasmani Grandal had a pair of hits while driving in two runs.

That was plenty of support for Gonzalez, who scattered five hits and three walks while striking out six in 3 2/3 innings. Matt Foster (1-0), one of six White Sox relievers, got the win.

Much of Chicago’s damage came off spot starter Ronald Bolanos (0-2), who allowed five runs in 1 2/3 innings.

Whit Merrifield hit a two-run homer for the Royals. Ryan O’Hearn drove in their other two runs.

Dodgers win third straight, cruise past D-backs 6-3

  Dodgers win third straight, cruise past D-backs 6-3 PHOENIX — The Dodgers came into Chase Field on quite the high Thursday night, fresh off an emotional two-game sweep over the sign-stealing Houston Astros. Three homers and another solid Ross Stripling start later, Los Angeles kept right on rolling in the desert. A.J. Pollock hit a two-run homer, Corey Seager and Max Muncy added solo shots and the Dodgers rolled to their third straight win with a 6-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Even without the added motivation of facing the Astros — who beat Los Angeles in the 2017 World Series before the sign-stealing scandal was revealed — the Dodgers were impressively efficient.

ROCKIES 6, PADRES 1

DENVER (AP) — Kyle Freeland pitched six innings of two-hit ball and was backed by the superb defence of Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado as Colorado beat San Diego.

Freeland (2-0) allowed a two-out single to Tommy Pham in the first and then retired 13 in a row before Francisco Mejia’s double in the sixth. The left-hander struck out four and walked one in throwing an economical 83 pitches.

Story contributed at the plate as well with a solo shot in the fourth. It was his second straight game with a homer. Matt Kemp hit a solo homer in the third for the Rockies.

Padres lefty Joey Lucchesi (0-1) had a forgettable outing in going 1 2/3 innings and giving up three runs.

Trent Grisham homered to centre in the eighth off Rockies reliever Yency Almonte.

DODGERS 11, DIAMONDBACKS 2

PHOENIX (AP) — Chris Taylor hit a three-run homer, A.J. Pollock and Edwin Ríos added two-run shots and Los Angeles rolled past Arizona.

The bottom of the Dodgers' order showed big power in the fourth inning when Ríos — who was hitting seventh — smashed a two-run homer over the 413-foot sign in centre field. Two batters later, Matt Beaty ripped another homer that barely stayed fair down the right-field line.

D-backs starter Luke Weaver (0-2) took the loss after giving up six runs in four-plus innings.

The Dodgers broke the game open with a five-run fifth when the first six batters reached base on Weaver and reliever Yoan López. Justin Turner hit a two-run triple and Pollock added a two-run homer as Los Angeles pushed its lead to 8-2. Taylor’s three-run homer in the eighth made it 11-2.

Astros' McCullers no-hit bid broken up in 7th against Giants

  Astros' McCullers no-hit bid broken up in 7th against Giants HOUSTON — Astros starter Lance McCullers Jr. had his no-hit bid against the San Francisco Giants broken up with one out in the seventh inning. Alex Dickerson grounded out to start the seventh before Donovan Solano extended his MLB-best hitting streak to 15 games with a grounder down the third base line that rolled just out of reach of Alex Bregman for a double. The right-hander retired his first six batters before plunking Austin Slater on the leg to start the third inning.

Dodgers starter Julio Urías (1-0) gave up two runs over six innings while striking out five.

CUBS 4, PIRATES 3

CHICAGO (AP) — Tyler Chatwood matched a career high with 11 strikeouts in another terrific performance, and Chicago used the long ball to beat Pittsburgh.

Javier Báez, Kyle Schwarber and Ian Happ hit home runs as Chicago won for the fifth time in six games. The Cubs have homered in each of their first eight games for the first time since 1958. Schwarber’s two-run shot in the eighth made it 4-0.

Chatwood (2-0) departed after Pittsburgh loaded the bases with two out in the seventh. Jeremy Jeffress came in and retired Phillip Evans on a grounder to third.

The Pirates got three in the ninth on Colin Moran’s two-run homer off Kyle Ryan and Gregory Polanco’s run-scoring groundout. But Rowan Wick got pinch hitter José Osuna to bounce into a fielder’s choice for his third career save.

The Pirates finished with six hits in their fourth loss in five games. Pittsburgh also lost Mitch Keller (1-1) in the third inning because of left side discomfort.

ATHLETICS 3, MARINERS 2, 10 innings

SEATTLE (AP) — Pinch-hitter Robbie Grossman lined an RBI double to score Tony Kemp in the top of the 10th inning to lift Oakland.

The A's snapped a three-game losing streak, escaping a major jam in the bottom of the ninth inning before Grossman came through in the 10th. Hitting for Ryan Murphy, Grossman lined a pitch from Dan Altavilla (1-1) into the right-centre field gap to easily score Kemp.

Liam Hendriks pitched the 10th for his second save of the season.

Oakland’s Joakim Soria (1-0) escaped a jam in the ninth after Seattle loaded the bases with one out. Soria struck out Jose Marmolejos and Shed Long Jr. to send the game to extra innings, leaving pinch-runner Dee Gordon stranded at third base.

Oakland trailed 2-0 until Chad Pinder’s two-out, two-run home run in the seventh inning off Seattle reliever Nick Margevicius.
