No More Excuses for Sonny Gray

  No More Excuses for Sonny Gray Sonny Gray has not been the revelation the New York Yankees hoped he would be. The 28-year-old righty has largely been a disappointment since being acquired from the Oakland Athletics at the trade deadline last year. ​While he has had some stretches of success, they have been few and far between. Sonny Gray is like that one relative that ruins a holiday. — Vic DiBitetto (@vicdibitetto) June 23, 2018 Gray's Yankees tenure can be defined by what he has not been able to accomplish: namely, get batters out at the rate he managed to when he anchored the Athletics' rotation.

Brandon Morrow came in to get the final out for his 17th save.

Berrios lacked his usual velocity as he yielded a season-high six runs and four walks. The right-hander was 3-0 with a 2.10 ERA over his previlous five starts.

Mauer's homer was just his second this season, following a solo shot on May 1. The 35-year-old first baseman last drove in five runs in a game last Sept. 17 against Toronto.

After Max Kepler and Mitch Garver led off the second with singles, Mauer's drive with two outs made it 3-0. His fly carried into the left-field basket with help from the wind.

With Albert Almora, Jr. on first, Heyward lined Berrios' first pitch to him in the third into the right-center bleachers to cut it to 3-2.

Cubs’ Yu Darvish set for rehab assignment

  Cubs’ Yu Darvish set for rehab assignment Chicago Cubs pitcher Yu Darvish is inching closer to a return to action after a month of being sidelined. Darvish, who has been battling triceps tendinitis, will make his first rehab start on Monday, according to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times. Darvish will head out today for South Bend for rehab start Monday. — Gordon Wittenmyer (@GDubCub) June 24, 2018 It’s not clear how many rehab starts the Cubs will want Darvish making, and they may ultimately play it by ear. Initial fears that Darvish might not be back until after the All-Star break appear to have been unfounded, though we’ll see how much rehab Darvish needs. He’s been a disappointment in his first year with Chicago, posting a 4.95 ERA in eight starts in what has been an injury-riddled debut season with the Cubs.
