Goldschmidt, Cardinals tighten NL Central race, top Cubs

  Goldschmidt, Cardinals tighten NL Central race, top Cubs CHICAGO — Paul Goldschmidt hit a three-run homer off a struggling Jon Lester, and the St. Louis Cardinals gained ground in the NL Central race by beating the Chicago Cubs 7-3 on Sunday night. St. Louis pulled within 1 1/2 games of Chicago with its third consecutive win over the division leaders. The longtime rivals have one game left in their pandemic-shortened season series on Monday. Dakota Hudson (2-2) worked five innings of three-run ball, shrugging off a shaky start. Chicago dropped to 10-15 since its 13-3 start. Anthony Rizzo and Jason Kipnis homered for the Cubs, but Lester (2-2) lasted just 3 1/3 innings in another lacklustre performance.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Kyle Cody earned his first major league win as the Texas Rangers hit a season-high five home runs to power past the Los Angeles Angels 7-2 on Sunday.

Joey Gallo, Anderson Tejada, Sam Huff, Rougned Odor and Derek Dietrich homered for the Rangers.

The Angels are several games out of a playoff spot going into the final week while the Rangers have been eliminated.

Cody (1-1) allowed just three hits and one run in a career-high five innings, striking out five without a walk. He retired 11 straight before Chris Woodward went to the bullpen.

Dodgers beat Padres, become 1st to clinch post-season berth

  Dodgers beat Padres, become 1st to clinch post-season berth SAN DIEGO — The Los Angeles Dodgers became the first team to clinch a playoff spot in the pandemic-shortened season, beating the San Diego Padres 7-5 Wednesday behind Dustin May’s gutty effort out of the bullpen and home runs from AJ Pollock and Chris Taylor. Will Smith drove in three runs for the seven-time defending NL West champion Dodgers, who opened a 3 1/2-game lead in the division by winning two of three in the matchup of the NL’s two best teams. Mookie Betts tied his career high with three stolen bases, had two hits and scored a run. At 35-15, the Dodgers breezed into the expanded 16-team post-season field.

Cody knew he had a five-inning limit, and he punctuated his strikeout of Andrelton Simmons to end the fifth with a fist pump.

“I’m not a huge fan of showing emotions and all the antics, but it’s been a long time since I’ve gone five innings,” Cody said. “It’s been two, three years since I’ve gone that long and to be able to go and continue to execute pitches and give my team a chance to win, that felt really good in that moment.”

The 26-year-old rookie exited with a 1.53 ERA in seven big league games, including four starts.

Cody gave up a double to Justin Upton in the second and Taylor Ward had an RBI single to get the Angels within 3-1, but otherwise he kept the Angels off-balance.

Julio Teheran (0-4) was chased in the second inning for the second consecutive game.

Rendon, Trout power Angels past D-backs 7-3 in series finale

  Rendon, Trout power Angels past D-backs 7-3 in series finale ANAHEIM, Calif. — Although the Los Angeles Angels probably will miss the playoffs for the fifth consecutive year, their offence is finally performing up to its pedigree and looking like one of the AL's best. Manager Joe Maddon hopes that's good news for a brighter future amid the Angels' fairly dismal present. Anthony Rendon hit a two-run homer and Mike Trout drove in two runs in the Angels' 7-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday. David Fletcher and Taylor Ward had three hits apiece for the Angels, who jumped to a 6-0 lead in the third inning and pounded out 14 hits on the way to their ninth win in 14 games.

Gallo hit a two-run homer off Teheran in the first and Tejada had a leadoff drive in the second. Teheran has given up 12 home runs in 30 1/3 innings this season.

Huff, the 22-year-old catching prospect who made his big league debut earlier this month, hit his first career home run, a shot in the fourth to left-centre field off a rock in the water fountain.

It was a banner day for the batterymates who were both drafted in 2016. And it took Huff a while to even realize he’d hit a 410-foot home run.

“I looked up and recognized I did it,” Huff said. “It got on me quick. It was fun. I was rounding second base and it didn’t really hit me before that.”

He said he’ll give his first home run ball to his father.

Patrick Sandoval pitched 4 1/3 innings of solid relief for the Angels, with his only blemish the homer to Huff. He kept the Angels close but Odor and Dietrich homered off reliever Ty Buttrey in the eighth.

Jared Walsh's 1st grand slam powers Angels past Rangers, 8-5

  Jared Walsh's 1st grand slam powers Angels past Rangers, 8-5 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Jared Walsh was a 39th-round pick who got a humble $3,000 signing bonus from the Los Angeles Angels. He used his cash to pay for an off-season of workouts, and then he never stopped grinding. Five years later, the 27-year-old rookie is the AL's leader in slugging percentage for September, and he's standing out in a lineup featuring Mike Trout, Anthony Rendon and Albert Pujols. Walsh's grand slam against the Texas Rangers on Monday is just the latest superlative in an improbable success story that's getting better almost every day. “It’s been really exciting,” Walsh said. “Something you dream about your whole life. Try not to get too sentimental.

QUICK HOOK

With the Angels in a must-win situation to have a shot at the post-season, Maddon pulled Teheran after he allowed three runs on two home runs and faced just seven betters.

“Everything’s a little bit off. There’s no deception in the zone right now for him, which he’ll eventually get back,” Maddon said. “But for right now under the shortened conditions, the fact that, like I said, had a late start, all these things are contributing factors. But I talked to him about it. I let him know it was something I had to do. He understood. He understood it was about the team first. But it wasn’t going to get any better and that’s why I did what I did.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Rangers: INF Ronald Guzman left the game with tightness in his right hamstring after he tried to run out a grounder to first.

Angels: INF Franklin Barreto will have shoulder surgery this week, according to Maddon ... OF Upton, who was hit in the helmet on Friday and left the game, was back in Sunday’s lineup.

UP NEXT

Rangers: RHP Kyle Gibson (2-5, 5.18) is coming off one of the best starts of his career, throwing a complete game shutout in Texas’ 1-0 win over Houston. He struck out nine and allowed just four hits in the win.

Angels: RHP Dylan Bundy (5-3, 3.12) is 4-1 with a 2.61 ERA in eight career appearances against the Rangers. He ranks sixth among American League pitchers with a 1.01 WHIP.

TRADE COMPLETE

The Rangers acquired minor league RHP Stephen Villines from the Mets to complete the Aug. 5 trade that sent RHP Ariel Jurado to New York.
