Davis, Lakers bounce back to beat Suns 109-102 in Game 2

PHOENIX (AP) The Los Angeles Lakers were reeling late in the fourth quarter on Tuesday night. The Phoenix Suns had made a big run, their home crowd was in a frenzy and the defending NBA champions were in danger of going down two games to none in the first round.

LeBron James and Anthony Davis weren’t about to let that happen.

James made a turnaround 18-foot jumper, Davis followed with a 3-pointer and the Lakers held on for a hard-fought 109-102 win over the Suns in Game 2 of the playoff series.

“This was a must win,” Davis said. “We all came out with that mindset and we were able to get the job done.”

It was a big bounce-back game for the Lakers, and especially Davis, who struggled in Game 1 and took personal responsibility for the team’s 99-90 loss on Sunday. His crucial 3-pointer with 2:15 left on Tuesday put Los Angeles up 98-92 and ended a late Suns rally.

Davis made 18 of 21 free throws and added 10 rebounds and seven assists. James added 23 points and nine assists.

“Those are two of the top five players in the NBA,” Lakers coach Frank Vogel said. “We have a formula where those guys carry a big load, especially at crunch time.”

James said he wasn’t surprised Davis bounced back quickly. He said the Lakers made it a point to get him involved as much as possible.

“Get him the ball early, often and always,” James said. “It’s that simple.”

Game 3 is on Thursday in Los Angeles and the Lakers suddenly have a lot of momentum.

Doncic and Mavs beat Clippers 127-121, take 2-0 series lead

LOS ANGELES (AP) A familiar face sat behind the Dallas Mavericks’ bench. Dirk Nowitzki, who led the franchise to its only championship in 2011 during his 21 seasons, came to see his old franchise that hasn’t won a playoff series since its title.

Led by Luka Doncic, this edition is looking pretty good.

“I certainly believe him being there tonight was a lucky charm for us,” Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said.

Doncic scored 39 points, Tim Hardaway Jr. added 28 and the Mavs again outshot the NBA’s best 3-point team in a 127-121 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night to take a 2-0 lead in the first-round playoff series.

“We can’t rest,” Hardaway said. “We know what they’re capable of.”

Kristaps Porzingis added 20 points and Maxi Kleber had 13. Hardaway hit a playoff career-high six 3-pointers and Doncic had five as fifth-seeded Dallas was 18 of 34 from long-range. The Mavs made 17 3-pointers in winning Game 1 on Saturday.

“The mentality was, go out there, play aggressive, have fun,” Doncic said.

The fourth-seeded Clippers were led by Kawhi Leonard, who scored 30 of his 41 in the first half. Paul George had 28 points and 12 rebounds.

Nets get 7 3s from Harris, rout Celtics 130-108 for 2-0 lead

NEW YORK (AP) Brooklyn is more than just its Big Three. There’s also Joe Harris and his 3s.

Even if a team can contain Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden, it still has to stop the NBA’s most accurate 3-point shooter.

That’s a lot of problems to solve, and Harris understands why teams don’t make him the priority.

“I think it’s just sort of, this is the reality of the matter,” Harris said. “I mean, we have three of the best offensive players that really have ever played.”

Harris tied a franchise playoff record with seven 3-pointers, Durant scored 26 points and the Nets routed the Boston Celtics 130-108 on Tuesday night for a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series.

Harris had a career playoff-high 25 points and Harden added 20 as the Nets unleashed their lethal offense after winning Game 1 largely with defense.

“Different games it’s going to be different guys,” Harden said. “Tonight it was Joe, next game, Game 3 it could be somebody else. So we’re just all locked in, we’re all on the same page and whatever it takes to win, we’re willing to do.”

Game 3 is Friday in Boston, where the Nets will attempt to build on their first 2-0 lead in a series since they swept the New York Knicks in the first round in 2004.

This one might be headed toward the same result, with the Celtics unable to do much scoring in Game 1 or stop the Nets from doing tons of it in Game 2.

Staal scores in OT, lifts Hurricanes past Predators 3-2

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Coach Rod Brind’Amour figured the puck would eventually have to bounce the right way for his Carolina Hurricanes.

Fittingly, his captain was ready when it did.

Jordan Staal scored off a rebound at 2:03 of overtime to give the Hurricanes a 3-2 come-from-behind victory over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night, pushing Carolina to a 3-2 lead in the first-round playoff series.

Staal was jostling for position just outside the crease when Brett Pesce fired a shot toward Juuse Saros, who made the stop and poked the puck forward. But Staal batted it out of the air and past Saros into the net.

Staal gave a yell and immediately skated backward with his arms outstretched until he reached the boards, where his teammates mobbed him in front of a roaring home crowd of 12,000.

“Not a whole lot of thoughts going through my mind besides just wanting some bear hugs from the fellas,” Staal said.

Staal’s score ended what was the third straight game to go to extra time, with the Predators winning a pair of grueling double-overtime contests in Games 3 and 4 in the best-of-seven series. This one, however, moved the Hurricanes within a win of closing it out and advancing in the postseason.

They’ll get that chance on the road in Game 6 on Thursday night.

Toronto blanks Montreal 4-0 for a 3-1 lead in playoff series

MONTREAL (AP) Alex Galchenyuk had plenty of memorable nights inside the Bell Centre. His latest standout performance pushed his former team to the brink of playoff elimination.

Galchenyuk set up two goals and scored into the empty net against his former team, Jack Campbell made 32 saves in his first playoff shutout, and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Montreal Canadiens 4-0 on Tuesday night for a 3-1 lead in their first-round series.

“It’s the playoffs, man,” Galchenyuk said when asked if he still speaks with anyone on the other team. “You know what time it is right now.

“There’s no friends.”

Galchenyuk was a healthy scratch in Game 1 before coming into the lineup when captain John Tavares was injured in a scary collision.

“Whatever role our team asks him to play, he comes in and does it tremendously,” said Campbell. “It’s not easy to come in and out of the lineup, but whenever he’s in, he’s given us a spark.”

Jason Spezza had a goal and an assist and William Nylander and Joe Thornton also scored for Toronto, which can wrap up the best-of-seven series at home Thursday in Game 5. Alexander Kerfoot had three assists.

“Scoring, defending, checking, all the way through the lineup, the guys dug down,” said Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe. “A lot of great efforts all the way.”

Carey Price stopped 24 shots for Montreal. The Canadiens have scored just four times in 12 periods against Campbell in the first playoff series between the teams since 1979.

Suarez homers in leadoff debut, Reds down Nationals 2-1

WASHINGTON (AP) Eugenio Suarez homered off Washington ace Max Scherzer in his first career start as a leadoff hitter, Tyler Mahle allowed three hits in 5 1/3 scoreless innings, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Nationals 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Kyle Farmer also homered off Scherzer to go with Suarez’s 10th of the season as the Reds snapped a five-game slide at Washington and five-game skid overall against the Nationals in the clubs’ first meeting since 2019.

Suarez still struck out three times – running his season total to 65 – and is batting .150. Manager David Bell bumped him up in the lineup in hopes of changing those trends.

“It’s really just to help Geno, doing anything to mix it up a little bit,” Bell said before the game. “More than anything (it’s) just giving him a different look.”

Quipped Suarez afterward: “Nothing different. I got four at-bats. I thought I was going to get five.”

Tejay Antone worked 2 2/3 hitless innings of relief to follow Mahle (3-2).

Washington’s Josh Bell belted his sixth homer in the ninth off Amir Garrett, and Lucas Sims got the final out for his second save.

Scherzer (4-3) allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings in his first loss since late April. He struck out nine in his fifth straight outing allowing two runs or fewer.

Both starters walked one, but Mahle won the duel thanks to two swings.

Farmer drove the opening pitch of the third inning into the seats in left, a fastball that caught too much of the plate.

“I’ve got to be better in that situation,” Scherzer said. “I even had a feeling he was going to be swinging.”

In the sixth, Suarez took a 1-1 changeup over the scoreboard in right-center.

“He missed the changeup right in my strike zone,” Suarez said, “and I was ready to hit it.”

Pederson’s 2 homers, Arrieta lead Cubs over Pirates 4-3

PITTSBURGH (AP) Joc Pederson hit two home runs, Jake Arrieta beat Pittsburgh for the third time this season and the Chicago Cubs defeated the Pirates 4-3 Tuesday night.

Pederson hit a solo shot in the third inning, and his two-run blast in the fifth tied it at 3. It was the 16th multihomer game of Pederson’s career, and he doubled his season homer total to four.

The leadoff-hitting left fielder also doubled and is hitting .369 in May. He had a .137 batting average in April after the longtime Los Angeles Dodger was signed as a free agent in the offseason.

“I’ve had a roller coaster of success over the years, and I’ve learned you do your best by staying out of the results because they can really drag you either way,” Pederson said. “You have to stay on an even keel and just trust yourself. You can’t really force anything in this game. It’ll tell you when it’s time to do it.”

Arrieta put the Cubs in a 3-0 hole after two innings but settled down to raise his record to 3-0 against Pittsburgh in 2021. He has a 15-6 lifetime record versus the Pirates.

Arrieta (5-4) went five innings and gave up three runs – two earned – on five hits with seven strikeouts and one walk.

“In the first inning, I just made some mistakes, elevated some pitches in the strike zone and they were able to take advantage of that,” Arrieta said. “I gave up two in the first, one in the (second), then it was a matter of minimizing the damage. Then the bullpen was lights out again.”

Four Cubs relievers combined for four scoreless innings, with Craig Kimbrel working the ninth for his 10th save. The bullpen has allowed only one unearned run over its last 29 2/3 innings.

Kimbrel gave up a leadoff double to Cole Tucker but retired the next three batters. He moved into a tie for 11th place on the MLB all-time saves list with Troy Percival with his 358th.

“Right now, we’ve got a good game plan, a good mentality and we’re attacking guys and getting them in swing mode,” Kimbrel said of the relief corps.

Chicago won for the seventh time in nine games and is 14-7 in May. Pittsburgh lost again in its first game back home following a 1-5 road trip.

Giolito, White Sox beat Flaherty, Cards 8-3 in HS reunion

CHICAGO (AP) Sharing the mound with an old friend, Lucas Giolito soaked it all in. And he won, too.

In a major league matchup of former high school teammates, the cooler hand prevailed.

Giolito pitched six effective innings, beating Jack Flaherty and leading the Chicago White Sox to an 8-3 victory over the sloppy St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night.

Earlier in his career, during his bumpy rise from top prospect to major league ace, Giolito said he might have mishandled a hyped matchup like the one with Flaherty.

Not this time.

“I feel like now I’m able to enjoy these kinds of moments and these kinds of experiences rather than stressing about them,” Giolito said. “When it comes time to stepping between the lines, I’m going to do my job and just stay on my path, have my focus at the glove, execute my pitches and kind of drown everything else out.”

The Harvard-Westlake High reunion also had a little history behind the plate, with Joe West working a record 5,376th regular-season game, snapping a tie with Hall of Fame umpire Bill Klem.

West was saluted by many of his longtime friends, including country music veterans Garth Brooks, Emmylou Harris and The Oak Ridge Boys, during an experience that he described as humbling.

“It was a very nice thing,” West said.

Giolito (4-4) permitted two runs – one earned – and six hits in his second straight win, easily getting the better of a shaky Flaherty hurt by another poor defensive performance by the Cardinals.

Flaherty (8-1), leading the majors in wins, lasted just 3 2/3 innings in his shortest outing of the season. He was charged with three earned runs and six hits.

Kershaw’s strong start gives Dodgers 9-2 win over Astros

HOUSTON (AP) The last time Clayton Kershaw pitched in Houston, the Los Angeles Dodgers ace was heckled and booed by Astros fans as he trudged off the field in the fifth inning during Game 5 of the 2017 World Series.

Things were much different Tuesday night in his first game against Houston since, when he received a rousing ovation from scores of LA fans after pitching into the eighth inning in a 9-2 victory.

“Everything that’s happened in the past has affected them just like it’s affected us,” Kershaw said. “You could feel it in the way they cheered.”

Kershaw (7-3) allowed a run and four hits in 7 2/3 innings, Justin Turner hit a two-run homer and Chris Taylor drove in two runs as the Dodgers got their eighth straight victory.

A crowd of 34,443 piled into Minute Maid Park in the first game open to full capacity since Game 7 of the 2019 World Series, which Houston lost to Washington.

Plenty of Dodgers fans helped fill out the crowd for the rematch of the 2017 World Series – a title Houston won over Los Angeles that was later tainted when it was revealed the Astros illicitly stole signs en route to the championship.

Kershaw certainly isn’t over what happened in 2017, but winning his first title last season took some of the weight off his shoulders that he’s carried since that loss.

“Anytime you lose a World Series, it doesn’t feel good, and then with everything wrapped around it, you don’t have the closure that you want,” he said. “You’re not going to change what happened in 2017 but (winning in) 2020 certainly helped alleviate some of those feelings.”

Loud cheers for LA and louder boos for Houston were heard throughout the game. One man in a Dodgers jersey held a sign that read: “Read This Sign … You Cheated.”

Civale dominates Tigers again in 4-1 Cleveland victory

DETROIT (AP) Aaron Civale dominated the Detroit Tigers again, taking a shutout into the ninth inning in the Cleveland Indians’ 4-1 victory Tuesday night.

“I really feel like things are going smoothly right now,” he said. “I’m having enough success that I’m not trying to make major adjustments between starts. I can focus on minor things.”

Civale (7-1) improved to 6-0 with a 2.19 ERA in seven career starts against the Tigers, including three wins this season. He allowed one run, six hits and a walk in eight-plus innings.

“I’m probably the wrong guy to ask about what he’s doing, because we certainly aren’t figuring anything out,” Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said. “All I know is he’s got a lot of pitches we can’t hit.”

Civale started the ninth but left after Jeimer Candelario singled and Miguel Cabrera walked.

“That was a great performance,” Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. “He moved the ball around and changed speeds like a veteran. He didn’t walk anyone until Miggy in the ninth and he could have finished the game if we needed it.”

James Karinchak allowed an RBI single to Jonathan Schoop and walked Akil Baddoo to load the bases with one out. Willi Castro took a called third strike and Eric Haase flew out to give Karinchak his sixth save.

“I knew James was going to get the job done for me,” Civale said. “I wasn’t worried if he gave up a run or two – I just wanted the victory.”

Tarik Skubal (2-6) took the loss despite a career-high nine strikeouts, allowing two runs, six hits and a walk in five innings. Detroit has lost four straight.

Cesar Hernandez hit Skubal’s second pitch over the Cleveland bullpen in left field – the major league-leading 13th homer Skubal has allowed this season.

TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY

1916       In Boston, Giants outfielder Benny Kauff is picked off first base three times by Lefty Tyler. The center fielder’s miscues don’t hurt the team when New York reels off its 14th consecutive road victory, beating the Braves, 12-1.

1925       In Chicago, Tiger outfielder Ty Cobb becomes the first player to collect 1,000 career extra-base hits when he doubles in Detroit’s 8-1 win over the White Sox. The ‘Georgia Peach,’ who surpassed Honus Wagner’s record of 993 earlier in the season, will finish his 24-year major league career with 1,139.

1929       Coming off the bench, Giants’ Pat Crawford and Les Bell of the Braves blast grand slams in consecutive innings, marking the first time two pinch-hit four-run homers occur in the same game. Crawford goes yard off Socks Seibold in the sixth inning, and Bell takes Carl Hubbell long in the seventh in New York’s 15-8 victory over Boston in the Polo Grounds.

1930       During the nightcap of a twin bill, Joe Sewell strikes out twice against White Sox southpaw Pat Caraway in Cleveland’s 5-2 victory over Chicago. The Indians’ infielder will be fanned a total of only three times in his 353 at-bats this season.

1937       Appearing as pinch-hitters, Cleveland’s Billy Sullivan and Bruce Campbell both homer, marking the first time that two batters on the same team have hit pinch round-trippers in an American League game. The off-the-bench home run heroics prove to be the difference when the Indians beat Philadelphia at Shibe Park, 8-6.

1947       The largest crowd ever to attend a single game in baseball history occurs when 74,747 fans, watch the Yankees beat Boston, 9-3, in a Monday evening tilt at the Bronx ballpark. The previous mark was set in 1932 at Cleveland’s spacious Municipal Stadium with a Sunday afternoon game attracting 73,592 patrons to witness Philadelphia’s 1-0 victory over the hometown Indians, a contest that takes only an hour and fifty minutes to complete.

1953       Six years after Jackie Robinson makes his major league debut, the Cardinals sign their first black player when Fresno State College slugger Len Tucker agrees to a $3,000 professional contract. The 23 year-old speedy outfielder plays exceptionally well in the minors for Peoria, Saskatoon, and Modesto, but never gets the called up to St. Louis.

1956       Reds starter John Klippstein, Hershell Freeman, and Joe Black combine to hurl 9.2 innings of hitless ball in a losing effort to Milwaukee. Frank Torre’s 11th inning walk-off single scoring Hank Aaron is the difference in the 2-1 defeat at County Stadium.

1957       Cubs rookie Dick Drott establishes a franchise record when he strikes out 15 batters en route to a complete-game victory over Milwaukee at Wrigley Field. The 20 year-old right-hander’s mark, accomplished in his seventh major league start, will be matched by Burt Hooton (1971) and Rick Sutcliffe (1984) and will remain the standard for a nine-inning game until Kerry Wood’s 20-K performance in 1998.

1959       At Comiskey Park, another of Bill Veeck’s stunts features the return of 3-feet 7 inch Eddie Gaedel along with three other little people. Arriving by helicopter, the quartet, dressed as Martians greets Nellie Fox and Luis Aparicio near second base, giving the diminutive infielders toy ray guns to help the keystone combo in their struggle with giant earthlings.

1959       Pirates’ hurler Harvey Haddix pitches 12 perfect innings but loses 1-0 to the Braves in the 13th inning. The heart-breaking winning run scores on a Don Hoak error, a sacrifice, a walk, and a two-bagger by Joe Adcock.

1959       The Yankees obtain Jerry Lumpe, Tom Sturdivant, and right-hander Johnny Kucks to the A’s in exchange for Hector Lopez and Ralph Terry. In three years, Terry will become second Bronx Bomber hurler to pitch a shutout in the seventh game of a World Series, with the departed Kucks being the first in franchise history to blank opponents in Game 7 of the Fall Classic.

1964       In front of a meager crowd of 2,503 fans at Wrigley Field, the visiting Mets set a franchise record for runs scored when the team pummels the Cubs, 19-1. New York’s 25 year-old first baseman Dick Smith, batting leadoff, becomes the first player in franchise history to get five hits in a game, nearly 20% of his season total of 21 when he collects a double, a triple, and three singles.

1976       Ken Brett’s no-hit bid ends with two outs in the ninth when White Sox third baseman Jorge Orta hopes Jerry Remy’s slow roller will go foul. The ball stays fair, and the no-hitter is lost, but the southpaw, who tosses ten innings of two-hit ball, gets the victory when the Pale Hose beat California in the 11th, 1-0.

1990       Don Baylor, who will be the only Angel to win the American League Most Valuable Player Award [1979] until Mike Trout cops the honor in 2014, is inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame. The seasoned veteran averaged 23 home runs and 87 RBI while batting .262 in six seasons for the California team.

1990       The Phillies retire Mike Schmidt’s uniform #20, honoring the third baseman who played his entire 18-year Hall of Fame career with the team. During his tenure with the team. At the time of his retirement in 1989, the 12-time All-Star was the Phillies’ all-time leader in games played, at-bats, plate appearances, runs scored, home runs, RBI, walks, and total bases.

1993       Carlos Martinez hits a fly ball to Jose Canseco that caroms off the Ranger outfielder’s head over the fence for a home run. The fourth inning solo homer will prove to be the difference when the Indians edge Texas at Cleveland Stadium, 7-6.

1996       Bobby Chouinard becomes the first player from Manila to appear in a major league game. The A’s hurler pitches five innings, giving up eight hits and five earned runs in a 6-1 loss to the Orioles at Camden Yards.

1997       Frank Thomas, Harold Baines, and Robin Ventura hit consecutive home runs in the eighth inning of the White Sox’ 12-1 win over Milwaukee. Chad Kreuter adds another round-tripper in the seven-run frame, making Chicago the 16th team in American League history to hit four homers in one inning.

1997       For the first time in twenty years, two inside-the-park homers are hit in the same inning when Sammy Sosa of the Cubs and the Pirates infielder Tony Womack both circle the bases for round-trippers five minutes apart in the sixth frame of the Cubs’ 2-1 victory at Three Rivers Stadium. Ranger teammates Bump Wills and Toby Harrah hit back-to-back inside-the-park home runs on consecutive pitches at Yankee Stadium in 1977.

2000       At Yankee Stadium, the game against Boston stops when a fan falls from the upper deck, remaining motionless for five minutes on the screen behind home plate. The 24 year-old man suddenly sits up and raises both arms high, and then is promptly arrested on a disorderly conduct charge.

2002       Royals reliever Cory Bailey becomes the first pitcher in a dozen years to win both ends of a doubleheader when team sweeps the Rangers at Kauffman Stadium, 7-5 and 9-8. In 1989, David Wells accomplished the feat for the Blue Jays in a twin bill against the Angels.

2004       In the Pirates’ 11-8 win over St. Louis at Busch Stadium, Daryle Ward hits for the cycle, collecting a two-run double in the first, a run-scoring triple in the fourth, a three-run homer in the fifth, and a single in the ninth. The Pirates first baseman and his dad Gary become the first father-son combination in major league history to hit for the cycle, with the elder Ward accomplishing the feat 24 years ago with Minnesota.

2006       Brandon Webb becomes the first Diamondback to start the season 8-0. The 27 year-old right-hander, who signed a $19.5 million, four-year contract in the offseason, beats the Reds at Great American Ball Park, 3-0, for his second consecutive shutout.

2006       Derek Jeter, with a dribbler up the third-base line for an infield single off KC’s Scott Elarton, becomes the eighth player in Yankee history to collect 2,000 career hits. The 31 year-old shortstop joins Yogi Berra, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Don Mattingly, Babe Ruth, and Bernie Williams in reaching the milestone.

2008       At Citizens Bank Park, Phillies’ second baseman Chase Utley homers and drives in six runs in the 20-5 rout of the Rockies. Philadelphia bats around three times, including two six-run innings, during their 19-hit attack against Colorado.

2011       Tossing a scoreless 19th inning in the Phillies’ 5-4 win over Cincinnati at Citizens Bank Park, Wilson Valdez becomes the first position player to record a major league victory since Brent Mayne accomplished the feat in 2000 with Colorado. The 33 year-old second baseman also became the first person to start the game in the field and then be credited with the win as a pitcher since Babe Ruth took the mound on October 1, 1921, after starting the game in left field.

2013       Twenty-year and 95 days old rookie shortstop Jurickson Profar becomes the youngest player in 55 seasons to launch a major league career with a home run when he goes deep off Seattle’s starter Hisashi Iwakuma in the Rangers’ 4-3 loss at Safeco Field. In 1958, Lou Klimchock accomplished the feat for the A’s at the age of 18 years, 348 days.

2016       Hall of Famer Wade Boggs became the tenth Red Sox player to have his number retired. The third baseman’s #26 joins 1 (Bobby Doerr), 4 (Joe Cronin), 6 (Johnny Pesky), 8 (Carl Yastrzemski), 9 (Ted Williams), 14 (Jim Rice), 27 (Carlton Fisk), 45 (Pedro Martinez), and 42 (Jackie Robinson) on Fenway’s historic right-field facade.
