Red Sox become 1st team in majors to clinch playoff spot
The Boston Red Sox became the first team in the majors to clinch a playoff spot this season, rallying on pinch-hitter Brock Holt’s go-ahead home run in the seventh inning to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 7-2 Tuesday night.
Guided by rookie manager Alex Cora, the Red Sox improved the best record in baseball at 99-46. They assured themselves at least a spot in the AL wild-card game while reaching the postseason for the third straight year.
The AL East-leading Red Sox began the night with an eight-game lead over the New York Yankees.
Boston starter Chris Sale came off the disabled list and pitched one scoreless inning, striking out two and throwing 26 pitches. Sale has been slowed by inflammation in his left shoulder, and the Red Sox had said they would ease their ace back into action.
Sale continued tossing in the bullpen after he was pulled, trying to rebuild his arm strength for the postseason.
The Red Sox matched a team record by making it to the postseason three years in a row. They also did it from 2003-05 and 2007-09 – with World Series titles in `04 and `07 included in each run.
Ryan Brasier (2-0) got the win with 1 1-3 innings of hitless relief as Boston used seven relievers after limiting Sale in his return.
Ryan Tepera (5-5) took the loss.
Donaldson hitless in Indians debut, 2-0 win over Rays
Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion are back together again and got a chance to celebrate a home run like old times in Toronto.
Donaldson went hitless in his Cleveland debut, Encarnacion reached 30 homers for the seventh straight season and the Indians beat the Tampa Bay Rays 2-0 on Tuesday night.
Donaldson was on-deck when Encarnacion went deep and the pair exchanged a high-five afterward.
“We try and have fun out there,” Encarnacion said. “It’s good to have him back in the same lineup together.”
Cleveland lowered its magic number to three for a third straight AL Central title. Second-place Minnesota was hosting the New York Yankees.
Acquired from Toronto on Aug. 31, Donaldson went 0 for 4 in his first big league game since May 28, a layoff caused by a strained left calf. The 2015 AL MVP flied out to deep center and deep right, struck out and grounded into a forceout. The third baseman made a nifty backhand grab on C.J. Cron’s sixth-inning grounder.
Quintana pitches Cubs past Brewers 3-0, take 2-game lead
Jose Quintana dazzled all night long.
The Chicago Cubs had the right guy on the mound for a big game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Quintana pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning, Victor Caratini drove in two runs and the Cubs beat the Brewers 3-0 on Tuesday to regain their two-game lead in the NL Central.
Quintana (13-9) continued his mastery of Milwaukee in a huge spot, improving to 6-2 with a 1.60 ERA in 10 career starts against the Brewers. The veteran left-hander struck out seven and walked two in 6 2/3 innings in his second straight victory over Jhoulys Chacin, also winning at Milwaukee last Wednesday.
“He always throws well, it seems, against the Brewers,” manager Joe Maddon said.
Quintana received a standing ovation from the crowd of 37,017 when he departed with the bases loaded after a replay review awarded an infield single to pinch-hitter Hernan Perez. Justin Wilson then struck out pinch-hitter Manny Pina on three pitches, preserving Chicago’s 2-0 lead and drawing another loud roar at Wrigley Field.
Marte drives in 4, D-backs beat NL West-leading Rockies 6-3
Ketel Marte was told his playing time would decrease. A struggling bullpen was informed their roles would be juggled.
They responded in a big way.
Marte drove in four runs, including a two-out, two-run triple to break a sixth-inning tie, reliever Yoshihisa Hirano helped Arizona weather a ninth-inning scare for his first big league save and the Diamondbacks pulled closer in the NL West standings by beating the first-place Colorado Rockies 6-3 on Tuesday night.
The Diamondbacks cut their deficit in the division to 2 1/2 games. The Rockies maintained a 1 1/2 -game advantage over the Los Angeles Dodgers, who lost for a second straight day in Cincinnati. Colorado is chasing after its first NL West crown in franchise history.
“We needed to win a game,” said reliever Brad Ziegler, whose team stopped a three-game skid. “It doesn’t matter how it happens as long as we walk away happy at the end of the night.”
Altuve hits leadoff homer, Astros power past Tigers 5-4
For five innings, the Houston Astros were one pitch away from blowing an important game.
Their relievers never gave the Tigers that pitch.
Five Houston relievers threw shutout innings, and the Astros’ three early homers held up in a 5-4 victory over Detroit on Tuesday night.
“None of those guys had a margin for error,” Houston manager A.J. Hinch said.
Houston maintained a three-game lead over the Oakland Athletics in the AL West.
Jose Altuve homered on the first pitch of the game, and the Astros hit two more homers in the first four innings to go up 5-0.
Houston starter Framber Valdez, though, couldn’t maintain that big lead.
Valdez allowed four runs in the bottom of the fourth, including a three-run homer by JaCoby Jones. That ended his night and started a parade from the Houston bullpen.
Will Harris (4-3) struck out the side in the fifth, allowing one walk, and Joe Smith pitched a perfect sixth.
Hector Rondon gave up two hits in the seventh but got out of the jam, and Collin McHugh and Roberto Osuna retired the last six batters in order. Osuna struck out rookie Christin Stewart to end the game and earn his 17th save in 18 opportunities.
Dodgers drop to 0-6 against Reds with 3-1 loss to Cincinnati
Not only did Los Angeles lose to the lowly Cincinnati Reds yet again, this time former Dodgers prospects did in their former team.
Former Los Angeles farmhands Brandon Dixon and Scott Schebler homered, and the Dodgers stumbled for the second straight night in a 3-1 loss Tuesday night.
“Two days ago, things were great,” Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said. “I don’t have an answer for the Reds. Obviously, we don’t. I wish I had an answer. We felt good about this series coming in. We were prepared. We can’t solve the riddle of their pitching. Our only thought now is to salvage the series and find a way to get a win.”
Defending NL champion Los Angeles is 0-6 against Cincinnati this season. The Dodgers, who lost Monday’s series opener 10-6 to the last-place Reds, remained 1 1/2 games behind NL West-leading Colorado and dropped three games back of St. Louis for the second NL wild card.
Yzerman steps down as Lightning GM, BriseBois takes over
Steve Yzerman stepped down as general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning after building them into a perennial contender, handing the reins to longtime assistant Julien BriseBois just two days before training camp.
Yzerman will move to a senior adviser role working under BriseBois and he said he was “100 percent committed” to the Lightning this season. Beyond that, Yzerman’s future is cloudy and BriseBois is now in charge.
“I feel this change in role is important for me to allow me to spend more time with my family and to still make sure the Lightning is managed to the level everyone has come to expect,” Yzerman said Tuesday. “We are all delighted that Julien is our next GM. He is more than ready.”
It was a surprising move for a powerhouse team, one that reached the Eastern Conference final last season. The 53-year-old Yzerman spent the past eight seasons as Tampa Bay’s GM, a tenure that included five playoff appearances, three trips to the conference final and an appearance in the 2015 Stanley Cup final.
Florence forces 3 games with ranked teams off weekend slate
Hurricane Florence has forced the cancellation of several Top 25 games this weekend, including No. 13 Virginia Tech’s home game against East Carolina, No. 14 West Virginia’s trip to North Carolina State and No. 18 UCF’s game at North Carolina.
The Category 4 storm’s approach led to a series of schedule adjustments Tuesday for teams in the Carolinas and Virginia. The University of Virginia’s scheduled home game Saturday against Ohio was relocated to Nashville, Tennessee and the start time for Wake Forest’s Atlantic Coast Conference home game Thursday against Boston College was moved up. The decisions were made as Florence appears set to come ashore along the Carolinas’ coastline late Thursday or early Friday with strong winds and heavy rain.
Several of the schools appeared to be publicly in agreement on the need for schedule changes due to Florence, though East Carolina’s decision not to travel to Blacksburg nixed Saturday’s game. ECU – which has already called off the rest of the week’s classes – cited “significant imminent safety concerns” that included “the high probability of a catastrophic impact on the region and perilous travel conditions before, during and after the storm.”
East Carolina’s announcement also noted the Greenville campus’ history with serious flooding issues from Hurricane Floyd in 1999 and Hurricane Matthew in 2016.
Stanford star Love to sit against UC Davis because of injury
All-America running back Bryce Love will miss No. 9 Stanford’s game against UC Davis on Saturday with an injury.
Cardinal coach David Shaw would not disclose specifics about Love’s injury. Love was the Heisman Trophy runner-up last season after running for 2,118 yards. He had 126 yards on 22 carries last week in a victory against Southern California after being held to 29 yards by San Diego State in the opener.
Stanford plays at No. 20 Oregon on Sept. 22.
Panthers’ Olsen breaks foot; Williams will need surgery
The Panthers will be without three-time Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen and second-team All-Pro Bowl right tackle Daryl Williams for the foreseeable future.
The team announced Tuesday that Olsen re-fractured the same right foot that kept him out of nine games last season in Carolina’s 16-8 win over Dallas on Sunday. Olsen will not have surgery and will be reevaluated on a “monthly basis.” He’ll remain on the team’s roster in hopes that he can return later in the season as he did a year ago.
Williams suffered an undisclosed knee injury and will need surgery.
Ranked as the top right tackle in the NFL last season by Pro Football Focus, Williams is likely headed for injured reserve. He tore the MCL and dislocated the patella in his right knee in training camp, but fought back to play in the season opener.
Rookie Ian Thomas is expected to replace Olsen in the starting lineup, while Amini Silatolu is next in line to take over at right tackle.
Unlike last year, the 33-year-old Olsen opted not to have surgery.
Falcons place Pro Bowl LB Deion Jones on IR with foot injury
The Atlanta Falcons placed linebacker Deion Jones on injured reserve on Tuesday, taking a second 2017 Pro Bowler from the defense in less than a week.
The move with Jones comes after coach Dan Quinn on Friday announced safety Keanu Neal suffered a torn ligament in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the season.
Jones hurt his foot in Thursday night’s 18-12 opening loss at Philadelphia . Quinn said Tuesday that Jones will require surgery, but is expected to return this season.
“We are bummed for Deion, but we do expect to get him back at some point this season,” Quinn said in a statement.
“He represents all that we are looking for in a Falcon player, and while he will not be on the field for us right now, he will continue to have a presence in our building.”
The Falcons didn’t release further details of Jones’ injury or surgery.
Jones led the defense with nine tackles, one interception and two passes defensed against the Eagles. It was his seventh career interception.
