Avalanche beat Oilers 4-2 to take 3-0 series lead
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Pavel Francouz took J.T. Compher off the hook for a penalty with a key save on Connor McDavid. A few seconds later, Compher took the life out Rogers Place – and put the Colorado Avalanche on the cusp of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Compher came out of the penalty box to give Colorado the lead with 7:18 left and the Avalanche beat the Edmonton Oilers’ 4-2 on Saturday night to take a 3-0 lead in the Western Conference finals.
Called for tripping Leon Draisaitl just three minutes after Ryan McLeod tied it for Edmonton, Compher raced out of the box, beat defenseman Evan Bouchard for control along the boards and scored between goalie Mike Smith’s legs.
Valeri Nichushkin scored twice for Colorado, Mikko Rantanen had an empty-netter with 30 seconds left, and Francouz made 27 saves.
Francouz stepped in midway through the Colorado’s 8-6 victory in Game 1 when Darcy Kuemper sustained an upper-body injury, then made 24 saves Thursday night in a 4-0 win for his second career playoff shutout. In Game 3, he made the big stop on McDavid to keep it tied before Compher scored.
“Frankie’s quick and got over there and made a great stop on it,” Colorado forward Nathan MacKinnon said. “That shows some strength to be able to reset after they tie it up in the fashion they did and be able to reset and get back to it.”
McLeod tied it at 2 at 7:34 of the third, going the length of the ice and beating Francouz with a snap shot from the high slot.
McDavid opened the scoring 38 seconds in for Edmonton. Smith made 39 saves.
“Our goal is the same as it was today, which is we’ve got to win one hockey game,” Edmonton interim coach Jay Woodcroft said.
Game 4 is Monday night in Edmonton, with Colorado a game away from advancing to the Stanley Cup final. The Avalanche won titles in 1996 and 2007.
“No doubt, obviously, a big win, but the job’s not done,” captain Gabriel Landeskog said.
After McDavid’s quick goal, Edmonton killed a five-minute penalty on Evander Kane for boarding Nazim Kadri just 28 seconds after McDavid’s goal, and stopped the Avalanche power play again midway through the period after Oilers defenseman Darnell Nurse was called for shooting the puck over the glass. Kadri was injured on Kane’s hit and didn’t return.
Coach Jared Bednar ruled out Kadri for at least the rest of the series, if not longer.
“He’s out,” Bednar said. “The hit? It’s the most dangerous hit in hockey.”
Nichushkin scored on two fortunate deflections to give Colorado the lead. He tied it with 3:48 left in the first period when his centering pass deflected in off Nurse. Then at 4:37 of the second, Nichushkin controlled a deflection off a shot from the point that MacKinnon and fired a wrist shot through Bouchard’s legs and past the screened Smith.
“Val is a huge part of our team and our offensive game and our checking game and helps out in all areas of the game,” Landeskog said. “Tonight, obviously, he was a force and comes up with two big goals for us, and I thought did a great job on the forecheck and neutral zone, staying above their top players and not giving them much room. It’s a tough task, but he’s been huge for us and he just continues to get better and better and a big, important piece for us.”
Colorado killed off MacKinnon’s tripping penalty late in the second, and Edmonton stopped the Avalanche’s power play again early in the third with Draisaitl off for high-sticking.
Only four NHL teams have ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a seven-game series. The Los Angeles Kings were the last to accomplish the feat in the first round of the 2014 playoffs against San Jose.
“Every play counts,” Smith said. “The desperation level has to be at an all-time high in order to win at this time of the year. It comes from everybody in the room – just a little bit more.
“There’s not a lot of space out there, but you’ve got to give everything you have for one game.”
Soto hits 2 homers, Nationals rally to be beat Reds 10-8
CINCINNATI (AP) The Nationals trailed by four runs with one out in the seventh inning when Juan Soto hit a fastball from Reds reliever Alexis Diaz 419 feet into the right-field seats for a three-run homer.
Soto’s second homer of the day energized the Nationals, who scored seven runs in their final three at-bats to rally for a 10-8 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday.
Washington, like Cincinnati languishing in the basement of its division. tied the score in the eighth inning on an RBI double by Luis Garcia, then took over in the ninth on Maikel Franco’s two-out, run-scoring single and a single by Garcia that drove in two more off Reds reliever Hunter Strickland (0-2).
“(In the) dugout, I tell the guys to keep good energy,” said Soto, who had the 12th multi-homer game of his career. “Whenever we do something like that, everybody gets motivated.”
Tanner Rainey, the last of six Nationals pitchers, came on in the ninth and gave up a homer to Brandon Drury and a single to Tommy Pham, but got Joey Votto to fly out to left and struck out Tyler Stephenson to end it.
“The boys battled back and the at-bats were getting better,” Washington manager Dave Martinez said. “These guys don’t quit.”
Kyle Finnegan (2-1) , who pitched a hitless eighth inning, got the win for Washington, and Rainey picked up his seventh save.
Reds starter Tyler Mahle worked six solid innings, allowing seven hits and three runs, all in the fourth, and struck out six. Strickland (0-2) took the loss for the Reds.
It was in that fourth inning that Soto crushed a 423-foot homer to center. The three-run shot in the seventh gave him a dozen for the season.
“I was just trying to make contact, to get a couple barrels and saw the ball flying,” he said. “For me, the work I’ve been doing the last couple weeks has been working. It’s been getting better and better, and we will see how it ends up.”
Kyle Farmer’s bases-loaded single drove in the Reds’ first two runs in the first inning.
The Reds put two runners on in the fifth, chasing Nationals starter Erick Fedde. Reliever Jordan Weems walked the bases full and walked in a run in before Albert Almora hit a 1-1 slider into the left-field seats for his second homer of the season and his first grand slam since 2019, when he played for the Cubs.
“We haven’t had too many like this,” Reds manager David Bell said. “When we get a lead, our bullpen has done a nice job for the most part. They’re going to happen. We kind of had it lined up the way we wanted, and it was really just a tough day.”
OH SO CLOSE
Soto timed his leap at the right-field wall just right in the first inning to rob Votto of what would have been his third three-run homer in as many days. Votto’s single his next time up was his 2,049th hit, good for fifth place in Reds history, one ahead of Hall of Famer Johnny Bench.
FRANCO IS FINE
Franco was 3 for 5 to push his season average to .270. The Nats third baseman is 13 for 37 with three doubles, five RBIs and three runs scored in his last nine games. This was his fourth multihit game in that stretch.
After a good outing on Friday night with Triple-A Rochester, Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg was expected to join the team in Cincinnati on Saturday. Manager Dave Martinez said he expected to talk to Strasburg after the game to see how soon he can plug him into the rotation.
The Nationals send left-hander Patrick Corbin (1-8, 6.96 ERA) against Reds right-hander Luis Castillo (2-2, 3.38 ERA) in the series finale on Sunday. Corbin was pummeled in his last start Tuesday against the Mets. He allowed seven runs and 12 hits in 4 1/3 innings and took the loss. Castillo gave up one hit and no runs through six innings in Tuesday’s win over the Red Sox.
Swarmer earns 1st MLB win, Cubs top Cards to open twinbill
CHICAGO (AP) Matt Swarmer earned his first big league win and Frank Schwindel homered in a three-hit showing to lead the Chicago Cubs over the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 Saturday in the first game of a doubleheader.
Swarmer (1-0) allowed two hits and one earned run in six innings, striking out six and walking two. The right-hander made his first start Monday, getting a no-decision while giving up one earned run in six innings against Milwaukee.
Swarmer helped snap Paul Goldschmidt’s 25-game hitting streak. The Cardinals star went 0 for 2 with a strikeout, a groundout and two walks, and fell one game short of the longest hitting streak in his career.
Drafted in the 19th round in 2016 out of Kutztown University, the 28-year-old Swarmer stifled St. Louis’ bats with firm control of his fastball and slider. With his father, sister and agent in attendance, he retired nine straight batters between the second and fourth innings.
“I’m just locked into the glove,” Swarmer said. “I was going off (catcher) Willson Contreras’ (calls) and then not trying to think about the hitters as much. I know (St. Louis) has some big-name guys. It’s definitely hard. You’re like, `Wow, he’s actually in the box with me.'”
Swarmer is the first Cub pitcher since Gene Lillard (1939) to start his big league career by allowing one run or fewer in consecutive starts of at least six innings.
Schwindel hit his eighth homer, connecting against Johan Oviedo for a drive that nearly cleared the bleachers in left-center field for a 2-0 lead in the fifth.
Rafael Ortega hit an RBI double later in the inning.
Schwindel added two more hits, including an RBI single in the sixth that extended Chicago’s lead to 5-1. He is batting .298 since May 11 and leads Chicago with six homers and 20 RBIs in the stretch.
Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols played in his 3,000th major league appearance after Corey Dickerson left the game early with left calf discomfort. Pujols went 0 for 3 with a walk.
The only other active player with at least 2,500 major league appearances is Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera.
Swarmer tried not to let the occasion get to his head.
“I always watched those guys on TV,” Swarmer said. “Now, to have a chance to face them, it’s really special in that moment. I have to soak it all in.”
Chicago manager David Ross liked what he saw from Swarmer in his first week as a major leaguer.
“Very impressive, never really in trouble,” Ross said. “I don’t know the stat, but it felt like maybe one guy got on second. It wasn’t many. Had both the slider and fastball working up and out.”
Cubs rookie Christopher Morel had the first three-hit game of his career. He has reached base in all 18 of his major league games.
The Cubs have won four of five. They’re playing their second doubleheader in a six-day span.
Oviedo (0-1) allowed three earned runs in five innings in his first big league start this season. He dropped to 0-9 in his career as a major league starter.
“When it’s in the zone, we saw what he was capable of doing,” Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said. “He was able to settle down a little bit and give us a chance. In the zone, his stuff plays. It’s a matter of the consistency of that.”
Tommy Edman homered in the sixth for St. Louis.
Scott Effross escaped a bases-loaded jam in the seventh by fanning Edman with a called strike.
Marmol was ejected for the first time in his career after arguing Edman’s case with plate umpire Bruce Dreckman. Marmol appeared to mimic the ejection motion toward Dreckman during a heated exchange at the plate.
“Bases loaded there, that changes the game,” Marmol said. “It’s a big part of that game. We weren’t happy with it, I expressed my thoughts on the field and we’ll move on.”
Chicago called up RHP Caleb Kilian from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday morning and optioned RHP Mark Leiter Jr. there in his place.
Kilian, acquired in last summer’s Kris Bryant trade, is expected to make his major league debut in the second leg of the doubleheader on Saturday night.
Ross didn’t want to set expectations too high for his organization’s top prospect.
“You try not to hype it up too much,” Ross said. “I don’t think any one player is ever like the savior, right? We put these labels on young men. He’ll come up, he’ll make the start and we’ll see how it goes.”
If the 25-year-old settles in quickly, he could factor into Chicago’s pitching staff this year. Kilian went 2-0 with a 2.06 ERA in nine starts with Iowa.
“It’s exciting from his standpoint, hard work, coming over,” Ross said. “He’s been impressive in a lot of ways, but still, you’ve got to make your major league career and come up, and no one knows how it’s going to go. But I’m happy for him. All the work has paid off.”
Cardinals: LHP Zack Thompson was called up from Triple-A Memphis. LHP Matthew Liberatore and RHP Kodi Whitley were both optioned to Memphis on Friday night. The Cardinals designated Memphis infielder Kramer Robertson for assignment to open a roster spot for Thompson. … OF Tyler O’Neill (shoulder impingement) will head to Memphis for a rehabilitation assignment. OF Dylan Carlson is going to Double-A Springfield as he works back from a left hamstring strain that has kept him out since May 22.
Cubs: LHP Conner Menez was designated for assignment to clear a 40-man roster spot for Kilian. RHP Anderson Espinoza was added to the roster as the temporary 27th man for the night game of Saturday’s doubleheader. Espinoza gave up two earned runs in four innings during his major league debut on Monday against the Brewers.
Cards score 4 in 10th to beat Cubs 7-4, split doubleheader
CHICAGO (AP) Cardinals rookie Brendan Donovan hit a two-run double in the 10th inning and St. Louis overcame a baserunning mistake to beat the Chicago Cubs 7-4 and split a doubleheader Saturday.
Tweets that Donovan sent as a teenager containing homophobic language surfaced during the doubleheader, and Donovan apologized after the nightcap.
Ian Happ had two doubles for the Cubs, who won the first game 6-1.
Donovan doubled after Michael Rucker (0-1) walked Nolan Arenado. Harrison Bader followed with an RBI single, and another run scored on a double play during a four-run 10th.
A Cardinals mistake kept them from taking the lead in the ninth. Edmundo Sosa missed third base attempting to score from second on Nolan Gorman’s single off David Robertson. Sosa had to return to third, and Paul Goldschmidt grounded out to end the threat.
“I’ll talk to him,” Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said of Sosa. “He missed first, too, had to come back and get it. I think part of it is not trying to hit it with the foot that hurts.”
Donovan had three hits and Sosa added two in the nightcap for the Cardinals, who have won 11 of 16.
“He’s taking whatever’s given, using the whole field, just grinding, wearing the pitcher down, taking his walks when needed, using the middle of the field,” Marmol said about Donovan.
Jason Heyward doubled with two outs in the 10th off Cardinals closer Giovanny Gallegos (1-2) but was stranded when Nick Madrigal struck out.
Happ doubled with two outs off Gallegos in the bottom of the ninth. Gallegos intentionally walked Frank Schwindel before striking out Patrick Wisdom to send the game to extras.
St. Louis loaded the bases in the seventh with three walks by Mychal Givens, but Robertson took over and struck out Goldschmidt.
“Really nice job of taking the ball and giving us a chance to win the game,” Cubs manager David Ross said about Robertson, who pitched 2 1/3 innings. “We just couldn’t push that next run across.”
Right-hander Caleb Kilian allowed three runs and three hits in five innings for the Cubs in his major league debut. The right-hander – who was acquired last season in the trade that sent former MVP Kris Bryant to San Francisco – struck out six and walked two. He went 2-0 with a 2.06 ERA in nine starts with Triple-A Iowa.
“Best day of my life,” Kilian said. “To be able to debut at Wrigley, Saturday night against the Cardinals and it starts raining, tied game in the ninth, I couldn’t ask for anything better.”
Kilian retired his first nine batters before walking Tommy Edman and allowing a one-out single to Goldschmidt, who extended his on-base streak to 41 games. Arenado walked to load the bases, and Edman scored on a wild pitch to tie it. Donovan doubled for a 3-1 lead.
Goldschmidt’s 25-game hitting streak was snapped in the first game. He went 0 for 2 with a strikeout, a groundout and two walks, and fell one game short of his career-best hitting streak.
Christopher Morel singled and Willson Contreras doubled to put the Cubs ahead 1-0 in the nightcap. Morel had a career-high three hits in the first game.
Rookie Andre Pallante allowed a run and four hits in four innings for the Cardinals in his first start. He struck out two but walked four.
The Cubs left the bases loaded in the fourth when Andrelton Simmons grounded into a double play.
Matt Swarmer earned his first big league win and Schwindel homered in the first game.
Swarmer (1-0) allowed two hits and an earned run in six innings, striking out six and walking two. He is the first Cub pitcher since Gene Lillard in 1939 to start his big league career by allowing one run or fewer in consecutive starts of at least six innings.
Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols played in his 3,000th major league appearance after Corey Dickerson left the game early with left calf discomfort. Pujols went 0 for 3 with a walk.
The only other active player with at least 2,500 major league appearances is Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera.
Johan Oviedo (0-1) allowed three earned runs in five innings in his first start this season. He dropped to 0-9 in his career as a starter.
Twitter users directed Donovan’s tweets to the attention of reporters, including at least one that used an anti-gay slur. Donovan’s Twitter account was deleted shortly after the second game.
The flagged tweets were sent in 2011 and 2013, and the 25-year-old Donovan said they were part of “playful banter” with a friend.
“I take full responsibility,” Donovan said. “It was something I sent out a long time ago. I’m truly sorry to anyone I may have offended. Anyone that knows me as a person knows I see everyone the same, and I do not condone that type of behavior or anything.
“If I’ve offended you, I truly apologize. Hopefully, I can do my part to show you that’s not who I am.”
Scott Effross escaped a bases-loaded jam in the seventh of the first game by fanning Edman with a called strike.
Marmol was ejected for the first time in his career after arguing with plate umpire Bruce Dreckman. Marmol appeared to mimic the ejection motion toward Dreckman during a heated exchange.
The Cardinals recalled RHP Jake Woodford from Triple-A Memphis as the 27th man.
The Cubs optioned RHP Mark Leiter Jr. to Iowa and designated LHP Conner Menez for assignment to make room for Kilian. RHP Anderson Espinoza was added as the 27th man. He allowed two earned runs in four innings in his major league debut Monday against Milwaukee.
Cardinals: Dickerson did not play in the second game. … RHP Jack Flaherty (right shoulder) is expected to make a rehab start Sunday with Double-A Springfield.
RHP Adam Wainwright (5-4, 2.75 ERA) will start for the Cardinals against LHP Justin Steele (1-5, 5.40) and the Cubs in Sunday’s series finale.
Severino, Yankees combine on 1-hitter, blank Tigers 3-0
NEW YORK (AP) Luis Severino combined with two relievers on a one-hitter to continue New York’s run of outstanding starting pitching performances as the Yankees beat the Detroit Tigers 3-0 on Saturday.
Aaron Judge hit his MLB-best 21st homer on the first pitch in the bottom of the first inning. The Yankees won their fifth straight and for the ninth time in 11 games since their only three-game losing streak this year.
Anthony Rizzo also went deep and Josh Donaldson lifted a sacrifice fly for the Yankees, who have outscored opponents 33-3 in their winning streak.
After Jameson Taillon retired the first 21 hitters Thursday night against the Angels and Gerrit Cole followed by setting down the first 20 batters Friday night against the Tigers, the suspense ended early for Severino and it ended by mere inches.
Miguel Cabrera’s 3,033rd career hit opened the second after Severino (4-1) needed just 12 pitches in the first.
“It was a really good pitch and Cabrera is Miguel Cabrera,” Severino said. “It was hit pretty hard.”
Cabrera singled when his sharp 109.6 mph liner glanced off the top of shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa’s glove and into left field for the slugger’s fifth career hit off Severino. It was the only ball the Tigers hit over 100 mph.
“It was tough,” Kiner-Falefa said. “If I didn’t move out of that, it would have hit me in the face probably. It was a tough play. I moved to my left a little bit and it took off like a slider right in my face.
“At that point, I was kind of just trying to save my face. I really wanted to come up with it but it took a crazy turn,” he said.
Severino struck out 10 in seven innings. His only walk came to Derek Hill in the third, and he was thrown out trying to steal second during an at-bat to Jonathan Schoop – who ended Cole’s perfect game.
Detroit was blanked for the seventh time this year, two shy of its total from last season. The Tigers were also held to one hit for the second time this season. On May 8, Jake Odorizzi combined with two relievers on a one-hitter in Houston against the Tigers, whose only hit in that game was a double by Schoop in the second inning.
“He was very dominant,” Detroit manager A.J. Hinch said. “He got us to chase when he needed it. We didn’t hit a ton of balls hard. He pitched a great game.”
Following Hill’s walk, Severino retired the final 13 hitters. He struck out the side in the sixth, getting the final out after Willi Castro pulled a ball foul to right field, and ended his outing by fanning Cabrera for the second time with his slider.
Severino posted his 11th career double-digit strikeout game and first since also getting 10 against Detroit on Aug. 31, 2018.
Severino’s outing marked the ninth straight time a Yankee starter pitched at least six innings, their longest since also doing it in nine straight starts May 18-27, 2016. It also was the MLB-best 13th time a New York starter finished at least seven innings, one ahead of San Diego.
“It’s like a rewind of the day before,” Severino said of New York’s dominant starting pitching.
Michael King breezed through the eighth. Clay Holmes notched his eighth save, extending his career-high scoreless streak to 26 innings.
“It’s been special to watch them go at it,” manager Aaron Boone said. “We talk about passing the baton in the lineup, well they’re doing it from the starting staff every day we’re getting that kind of outing.
It was New York’s 62nd one-hitter of at least nine innings. The last was April 13, 2019, when CC Sabathia allowed a third-inning single and combined with three relievers against the Chicago White Sox.
Detroit rookie Beau Brieske (0-5) allowed two runs on three hits in six innings.
ANOTHER CLEMENS IN THE BRONX
Kody Clemens, the youngest of Roger Clemens’ four children, went 0 for 3 in his fifth career game.
Clemens started in left field and had his father sitting in a suite. The rookie is 0 for 12 to start his career.
Clemens, 26, was born May 15, 1996, when his father was in his final season with the Red Sox. The elder Clemens signed with Toronto after 1996 and pitched three seasons there before being traded to the Yankees before the 1999 season for David Wells. He won his sixth Cy Young Award in 2001 and then won his final Cy Young in 2004 in Houston when Kody was eight.
The youngest member of the Clemens’ family was Detroit’s third-round pick in 2018 out of Texas, the alma mater of his father, and made his debut earlier this week against Minnesota.
Tigers: RHP Michael Pineda (fractured right middle finger) threw a bullpen session Saturday. . LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (sprained left ribcage) will throw a bullpen session Sunday and could begin a rehab stint if it goes well.
Yankees: DH Giancarlo Stanton went 1 for 4 after being activated off the injured list following a brief absence with a sprained right ankle.
Yankees LHP Jordan Montgomery (1-1, 3.04 ERA) faces Detroit RHP Rony Garcia (0-1, 4.70) in Sunday’s series finale.
Alonso homers twice, Mets roll to 9-4 victory over Dodgers
LOS ANGELES (AP) Pete Alonso homered twice for the second time this season, drove in five runs and bounced back from a costly error as the New York Mets beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-4 Saturday night.
Francisco Lindor and Eduardo Escobar also went deep for the Mets, who bounced back after being held to one run in dropping the first two games of the four-game series between the NL’s top teams. Coincidentally, that run was also on an Alonso homer.
Dodgers starter Walker Buehler was chased early, and Los Angeles ended up using seven pitchers. Manager Dave Roberts tried to bring in infielder Zach McKinstry to pitch the ninth inning, apparently unaware of a rule barring position players from pitching in games with a deficit of five runs or fewer. Umpires halted McKinstry from taking the mound, forcing Roberts to warm reliever Evan Phillips.
Colin Holderman (3-0), the second of seven Mets pitchers, was credited with the win.
Mookie Betts drove in three runs for the Dodgers, who have dropped four of six on their current homestand. Buehler (6-2) had the shortest outing of his career, allowing five runs in 2 1/3 innings.
Trea Turner went 0 for 4 to snap his 26-game hitting streak, which was the longest in the majors this season.
Alonso has 16 homers, tied with Betts for the NL lead and Cleveland’s Jose Ramirez for the major league-lead in RBIs with 53. The power-hitting first baseman is also the first player in the 60-year history of Dodger Stadium to go deep seven times in his first 11 games played here.
The Dodgers took a 4-1 lead in the second, mainly on an error by Alonso. With one out in the second, he fielded Cody Bellinger’s grounder, but his throw to second base drew Lindor off the bag, allowing Hanser Alberto to get in safely. The Dodgers would eventually have the bases loaded with two outs when Betts lined a double to the wall in right-center to clear the bases.
The Mets responded with four of their own in the third. Starling Marte had an RBI double, and Brandon Nimmo scored on Lindor’s grounder to bring New York within a run before Alonso chased Buehler after driving a slider over the wall in left field to give the Mets a 5-4 lead.
Alonso then notched the 13th multi-homer game of his career with a three-run shot to right in the seventh to extend the lead to 9-4.
Lindor got the Mets on the board with a solo shot in the first inning, and Escobar homered in the fourth. It is the second time the Mets have gone deep four times in a game this season.
David Peterson allowed four runs in 3 2/3 innings but only one earned, and struck out six. The left-hander gave up only two hits but walked four and was at 90 pitches when Buck Showalter pulled him after Betts lined a foul ball down the left-field line.
Buehler didn’t get out of the third inning for only the second time in 105 career starts. He yielded five hits with two walks and three strikeouts.
Mets: RHP Tylor Megill (right biceps tendinitis) will throw 55 pitches or go four innings during a rehab appearance Sunday at Double-A Binghamton.
Dodgers: LHP Clayton Kershaw (right SI joint inflammation) will go at least three innings for Class A Rancho Cucamonga on Sunday. Roberts said Kershaw could throw an extra inning in the bullpen depending on his pitch count. Roberts added there is a possibility that Kershaw could return to the rotation during next weekend’s series in San Francisco.
Mets: RHP Trevor Williams (1-3, 3.58 ERA) starts against LA on Sunday. He threw five scoreless innings in his last start against Washington on May 31.
Dodgers: LHP Julio Urias (3-5, 2.89 ERA) pitches Sunday. He has dropped four of his last five starts.
Berríos fans career-high 13, Blue Jays beat Twins 12-3
TORONTO (AP) Jose Berrios struck out a career-high 13 over seven innings against his former team and the Toronto Blue Jays backed him with three home runs, hammering the Minnesota Twins 12-3 Saturday.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Alejandro Kirk and Bo Bichette homered as the streaking Blue Jays won for the ninth time in 10 games. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. added three hits as Toronto set season highs in runs and hits (16).
Jorge Polanco homered for the Twins, who have lost eight of 12 since a six-game winning streak.
Berrios (4-2) allowed two runs and three hits, matching Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw and Milwaukee lefty Eric Lauer for the second-most strikeouts in a game this season. Miami’s Sandy Alcantara struck out 14 against Atlanta on May 28.
“I just tried to be the Jose Berrios who I am, and I did it,” Berrios said. “I just tried to concentrate, be fresh, focus pitch by pitch, and I did it.”
Five of Berrios first six outs were strikeouts, and he finished his outing by fanning the final two batters he faced.
“His slider was huge,” Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said. “It was like a frisbee today.”
After taking no-decisions in his past two starts, Berrios won for the first time since May 17 against Seattle.
“His breaking ball was a real weapon,” Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said. “It was a tough day for us because of that.”
Polanco, who roomed with Berrios in Minnesota’s minor leagues, said it felt good to connect off his old pal, even if he came up empty in his next two at-bats.
“He was commanding his pitches,” Polanco said. “He was making good pitches to us and he did well.”
Berrios spent parts of six seasons with the Twins before being traded to the Blue Jays last July. The two-time All-Star faced his old team twice last September, going 1-1.
The Twins struck first against Berrios. Luis Arraez led off the game with a single and Polanco hit a one-out homer, his sixth.
“From that point on, there wasn’t a lot going on,” Baldelli said.
Bichette hit his eighth homer off Dylan Bundy (3-3) in the bottom half and Toronto took the lead with a three-run second. Cavan Biggio hit an RBI double, George Springer drove in a run with a dribbler up the third base line and Biggio scored on a fielding error by shortstop Jermaine Palacios.
Teoscar Hernandez tripled to begin the third and Kirk followed with his fourth home run.
Guerrero hit a two-run homer, his 12th, off Ian Hamilton in the fourth.
Bundy was tagged for five earned runs and eight hits in 2 1-3 innings, the shortest of his nine starts this season.
“This is a tough one to swallow because I felt really good,” Bundy said. “Probably some of the better stuff I had, just the command wasn’t there today.”
Bundy allowed one earned run through his first three outings of 2022 but has given up 25 earned runs in six starts since.
Berrios fanned 12 batters twice with the Twins, doing it June 24, 2018, against Texas and again April 3, 2021, at Milwaukee, when he tossed six no-hit innings in first start of the season.
Twins RHP Yennier Cano threw consecutive wild pitches in the sixth.
ONE TO FORGET
The Twins set season-worsts in hits and runs allowed, and lost by their biggest margin of the year so far.
Twins: OF Gilberto Celestino was activated off the COVID-IL and RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez was returned to Triple-A St. Paul.
Blue Jays: LHP Tim Mayza (forearm) will make a rehab appearance with Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday. . Springer stayed in the game and hit a sacrifice fly after fouling a pitch off his left foot in the seventh. Bradley Zimmer took over defensively in the eighth.
Twins LHP Devin Smeltzer (2-0, 1.50) starts Sunday against Blue Jays RHP Kevin Gausman (5-3, 2.51). Gausman is 0-3 with a 7.30 ERA in seven career games against the Twins, but has not faced Minnesota since 2018.
Phillies send slumping Trout, Angels to 10th straight loss
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Mike Trout flailed at strike three in the dirt his final at bat and a most miserable game was complete. The three-time AL MVP whiffed three times and went 0 for 4 in the Angels’ latest loss to extend his hitless streak to a career-worst 0 for 23.
Good thing his hometown South Jersey fan club stands by the Los Angeles slugger through even brutal slumps.
“I’m just trying to get into a good position to hit,” Trout said. “And right now, I’m not.”
He’s not alone in struggling on an Angels team muddling through their longest losing streak in almost six years.
Zack Wheeler struck out nine over six solid innings and Johan Camargo had four RBIs to help the Philadelphia Phillies win 7-2 Saturday night and send Trout and the Angels to their 10th straight defeat.
Trout’s previous worst stretch was 0 for 21 in May 2018, and he struck out three times in a game for the fifth time this season.
“I’m in it,” Trout said. “I’ve got to get out of it. I’m just searching too much right now.”
Wheeler (4-3) picked up where he left off as the NL pitcher of the month for May when he went 2-0 with a 1.65 ERA and 40 strikeouts over five starts. The right-hander gave up two runs and six hits and was just the latest starter to stymie the Angels. Three relievers kept Los Angeles in check with one shutout inning apiece.
The Phillies won 10-0 a night earlier in interim manager Rob Thomson’s debut and kept mashing with five runs in the first inning. J.T. Realmuto ripped a two-run, bases-loaded double to left field and Camargo slashed a two-RBI single to right. Mickey Moniak’s RBI infield single off Angels starter Michael Lorenzen (5-3) made it 5-0 – and 15 runs over the first full nine innings of Thomson’s tenure.
Thomson said he received about 350 text messages after his first win since he was promoted from bench coach after Joe Girardi was fired.
“I’m still preparing certain things that I need during the game, but there’s less of that and it’s more about being with the players, communicating with them,” Thomson said.
Camargo added a two-run single in the eighth. Realmuto doubled a career-high three times and the Phillies won their third straight game.
Lorenzen settled down and struck out a career-high nine over 5 2/3 innings. He walked four batters in the first inning.
But it was yet another numbing loss for the Angels, who are on their worst losing streak since they dropped 11 straight from Aug. 4-15, 2016. Five straight losses have come on the current road trip that started against the Yankees.
“We’re just not hitting,” Angels manager Joe Maddon said. “We can’t cover any of our mistakes. You have to be able to cover a bad lie every once in a while. We’re not able to do that right now.”
The Angels have lost 14 of 17 games overall and played nothing like the team that started 24-13 and was tied for first in the AL West on May 15. The Angels have scored only four runs over the last four games. It could get worse: Los Angeles wraps the three-game series Sunday and returns home to play the Red Sox and NL East-best New York Mets.
The former mayor of Trout’s hometown of Millville, New Jersey, organized a trip for about 75 people and rented a suite to watch the outfielder play. Jim Quinn also made the trek the last time Trout played in Philadelphia in 2014. The red in this suite was for Trout T-shirts and jerseys, and Millville represented the entire town as fans cheered his at-bats. When a TV graphic identified Trout as a “Philadelphia Kid,” fans shouted “New Jersey!” When Trout struck out in his first at-bat, a fan mused, “he’s just slumping right now.”
Maybe. But Millville backs its hometown home run hero.
“He’s such a good guy,” Quinn said. “He and I live close to the same Wawa. He goes to Jim’s Lunch, that’s his favorite place, so I see him there. People are very respectable toward him. I know some people criticize him for not being flamboyant. But he is what he is. He’s just such a nice guy. It’s just a good family all around.”
CUT ME, MICK
Phillies 3B Alec Bohm slammed his bat into the bat rack after he struck out in the first inning, only for him to miss the hole and have the bat spring back under his face and cut him. Blood flowed down his neck and stained his uniform.
Angels OF Taylor Ward did not start because of right hamstring tightness suffered a night earlier.
Phillies INF Nick Maton sat out with a sore right shoulder and is day to day after a hard landing on a catch Friday night.
The Phillies send RHP Kyle Gibson (3-2, 3.83 ERA) to the mound against Angels LHP Patrick Sandoval (3-1, 2.70) on Sunday.
Swiatek surpasses Serena’s streak for 2nd French Open title
PARIS (AP) Iga Swiatek’s winning streak began to feel like a burden, she said, with all of the attention it gained as it grew, all of the pressure to keep it going, especially with a Grand Slam title in the offing.
As good as her forehand is, as skilled as her hit-the-ball early reflexes are, as much as her serve keeps improving, what Swiatek needed, above all, was a way to shut out the noise, to ignore all the stats and facts, and to find a way to focus – match to match, set to set, game to game, point to point, shot to shot.
During the French Open, she did that away from the court by reading (Alexandre Dumas’ “The Three Musketeers” was one choice) and on the court by singing in her head (a Dua Lipa song she called a “guilty pleasure”). Most of all, she allowed her play to rule the day. Thanks to a 6-1, 6-3 victory over 18-year-old American Coco Gauff in Saturday’s final, the top-ranked Swiatek leaves Roland Garros with her second championship – and a run of 35 matches without a loss.
“It is, like, basically the hardest part of the job, I would say, because you can see at Grand Slams that there are a lot of surprises. It’s not easy to cope with all that different atmosphere and the pressure,” Swiatek, who is 21, said after adding this trophy to the one she won in Paris in 2020 while ranked outside the top 50. “For me, I felt the baggage. The hardest thing is like not letting yourself think about that and overanalyze and not letting yourself think about all the numbers and the odds.”
Ah, yes. The numbers. They’re impressive.
Swiatek has won her past six tournaments. She has won 56 of her past 58 sets. She is 42-3 this season. She has won 16 sets by a 6-0 score. And her unbeaten streak now is one better than the best Serena Williams ever had, 34, and equals the longest this century (Williams’ older sister, Venus, had a 35-match run in 2000).
“Kind of doing something more than Serena did,” Swiatek said, “it’s something special.”
Swiatek has emerged as a dominant figure in tennis, stepping into a gap that presented itself with 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena out of action for nearly a year and three-time major champ Ash Barty announcing in March she would retire at age 25 and relinquish the No. 1 ranking.
That allowed Swiatek to move up to the top of the WTA, and she’s shown she is a deserving resident there.
“She does a good job of taking the pressure moments and really rising to the occasion. And today she rose to the occasion,” said the 18th-seeded Gauff, who was appearing in her first Grand Slam final and hadn’t dropped a set in the tournament. “I do that pretty well, too, but today, she was just on another level.”
Gauff is now 0-3 against Swiatek.
“The past couple months have truly been amazing and you totally deserve it,” Gauff told Swiatek, then added with a chuckle: “Hopefully we can play each other in more finals, and maybe I can get a win on you one of these days.”
On the warmest day of the tournament, with the temperature at 82 degrees Fahrenheit (28 Celsius), just a few puffs of white in the blue sky at the outset turned into thick, foreboding gray clouds by the second set, accompanied by a thunderclap. The match ended after 1 hour, 8 minutes, before the rain arrived.
Gauff did not get off to the best of starts: It was 4-0 in a blink.
Swiatek broke serve right from the get-go, with plenty of help from Gauff, who put a forehand into the net, double-faulted – eliciting some sighs of “Awwwww” from the crowd – dumped a forehand into the net, and pushed another forehand long.
Not in all cases, of course, but often, the spectators at Roland Garros tend to back an underdog or whichever player is trailing – both of which applied to Gauff. So there was a surfeit of shouts of “Allez, Coco!” One person yelled, “Coco, you can do it!” There were repeated cries of her chant-ready, two-syllable first name.
As things appeared to be getting away from her, Gauff slapped her thigh or covered her eyes, shook her head or looked up toward her parents in the stands.
What she never did was waver or concede anything.
Gauff began the second set by breaking Swiatek for the only time, and then holding to go up 2-0. Might this transform into a much closer contest? Might Gauff push Swiatek to a third set?
No. Swiatek quickly recalibrated and reasserted herself, breaking back for 2-all as Gauff’s propensity for miscues returned. By the end, Gauff had more unforced errors, 23-16, and also fewer winners: 14 for her, 18 for Swiatek.
Also key to Swiatek’s presence, and swiftly burgeoning aura, is her calmness on court. She has traveled on tour with a sports psychologist, who was in Swiatek’s guest box on Saturday, and works on various elements of her professional and personal lives.
That includes an emphasis on maintaining focus and setting priorities, such as the determination that she is still too new at this whole business of attempting to win Grand Slam titles that she decided it was best not to attend the Champions League soccer final in Paris last weekend, something Nadal did do.
Maybe a couple of years down the road, Swiatek surmised, a night out might be a welcome distraction. For now, Swiatek said, she felt she needed to keep all of her attention on tennis.
Why mess with success?
Horschel delivers a gem and builds 5-shot lead at Memorial
DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) Billy Horschel is more concerned with the way he is playing than the size of his lead in the Memorial. Either way, he’s in good shape going into the final round.
On a Muirfield Village course that is getting increasingly firmer, Horschel hasn’t made a bogey since the 10th hole of his opening round. There wer efive players tied for the lead at one point. Horschel finished the day five shots ahead.
It was the second straight year for a big 54-hole lead at the Memorial. Horschel at least get a chance to finish the job.
One year after Jon Rahm built a six-shot lead – only to be forced to withdraw after the third round because of a positive COVID-19 test – Horschel delivered a gem on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon with a 7-under 65 for his largest 54-hole lead of his career.
Horschel chipped in for birdie on his opening hole. Everything else was simply solid, with only one other birdie putt outside the 10-foot range.
He was at 13-under 203, five shots clear of Aaron Wise (69) and Cameron Smith (72).
“I just go to the tee understanding I’m leading the tournament. I know I’ve got however many shots I have ahead,” Horschel said. “I’m not going to be protective, I’m not going to be overly aggressive. I’m going to play the way I have the last three days. We’re going to hit the golf shots that are required, and I know if we do that it’s going to give me the best chance to be victorious come tomorrow.”
He will be going for his sixth individual title and seventh PGA Tour victory.
Daniel Berger had a 67 and six shots behind along with Jhonattan Vegas and former British Open champion Francesco Molinari, who hasn’t had a top-five finish since the 2019 Masters.
“I’m just happy to be up there,” Molinari said. “Billy is a really good player, but in golf you never know. On a course like this, it’s showing today that if you hit the fairways you get plenty of chances and you can shoot 6-, 7-under par. If you start missing fairways it’s a whole different challenge. I think there’s going to be an outside chance, but it’s just nice to be kind of up there.”
Smith started with a one-shot lead and ran into trouble immediately, with bogeys from the bunker on the first two holes. He played alongside Denny McCarthy, who on three occasions in the first hour was putting for birdie from closer than where Smith was putting for par.
It was a struggle for Smith to get back to even for the day, but by then, Horschel was starting to pull away from everybody.
He took the lead with a wedge to 3 feet for birdie on the par-5 seventh, and then stuffed his tee shot to a front pin within 6 feet on the par-3 eighth. He made birdie on all the par 5s. The four times he missed the green, he chipped in on No. 1 for birdie and made tough saves from bunkers and a delicate pitch behind the 12th green that ran quickly away from him.
Smith saved himself one shot at the end. The greens are firm enough that anything in the rough makes it hard to stop near the hole. Smith’s shot from deep grass right of the 18th fairway bounded to the back of the green with a front pin. The Aussie went with a flop shop that trickled near the hole and settled 3 feet away for par.
“It was a nice one to get par out of,” Smith said. “There was lots of not-so-good stuff out there today, and just stuck in there. Managed to have a couple of birdies on that back nine. Just nice to get away with level par and keep myself in the tournament. I think especially today it could have got away from me a little bit.”
Rory McIlroy started the third round just three shots out of the lead, but as everyone else around him was piling up birdies, McIlroy was stuck on pars. He didn’t make his first birdie until the 11th hole and shot 73 to fall four shots behind.
Defending champion Patrick Cantlay began his round by pulling his tee shot into a stream and making double bogey. He atoned for that with a pair of eagles, finished with three straight par putts from outside 8 feet and shot 69. He was seven beind.
That would appear to be too far back – the largest comeback at the Memorial is five shots, most recently 15 years ago by K.J. Choi. Then again, players have rallied from seven shots behind to win the last two weeks by Sam Burns at Colonial and by Justin Thomas at the PGA Championship at Southern Hills.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s any different,” Wise said. “Anything is possible.”
Na resigns as tour member after signing up for Saudi league
DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) Kevin Na became the first player to publicly resign from the PGA Tour on Saturday, four days after the Saudi-financed LIV Golf Invitational listed him in the field for next week’s debut of the new series.
Na is one of six players to have resigned, according to a person with knowledge of their decisions. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the players have not said. Na announced his decision on social media.
Na is No. 33 in the world and among four players from the top 50 who have signed up for Saudi riches to play in Greg Norman’s new league of 48-man fields over 54 holes and as much as $25 million in prize money for each event.
The first one starts next Friday outside London.
“I would like the freedom to play wherever I want and exercising my right as a free agent gives me that opportunity,” he wrote. “However to remain a PGA Tour player, I must give up my right to make these choices about my career.”
Na is a five-time PGA Tour winner with $37.9 million in career earnings.
The PGA Tour requires members to play 15 times a year, and it historically grants releases for at least three overseas tournaments a year. However, it denied releases for the LIV Golf Invitational because of its threat as a series of eight tournaments, five of them in the United States.
The tour does not grant releases for events held in North America. The tour has said those who played outside London next week in the LIV event would face discipline that it has not specified, presumably losing membership.
One reason for players to resign is for the majors. The USGA has not said whether players who sign up for LIV Golf will be allowed to play the U.S. Open on June 16-19 at The Country Club. While the tour does not run the majors, the relationship is such that majors could honor PGA Tour regulations if a player is suspended.
“I hope the current policies change and I’ll be able to play on the PGA Tour again,” Na wrote.
Minjee Lee shoots 67, opens 3-shot lead in U.S. Women’s Open
SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. (AP) Minjee Lee appears to be on mission.
The 26-year-old Australian shot a 4-under 67 on Saturday to take a three-stroke lead over American Mina Harigae into the final round of the U.S. Women’s Open.
“My approach (Sunday) is going to be the same as the last three days – I’m just going to try and make as many birdies as I can and give myself as many opportunities as I can on the greens,” Lee said.
At 13-under 200, Lee was within striking distance of the U.S. Women’s Open scoring record in relation to par held by Juli Inkster, who finished at 16-under 272 in 1999 at Old Waverly. Inkster did that on a par-72 course, while par is 71 at Pine Needles.
“I haven’t really thought about it,” Lee said. “If I play good, it’s going to come with it, right?”
The fourth-ranked Lee won the Founders Cup three weeks ago in New Jersey in the tour’s last stroke-play event for her seventh LPGA Tour victory. She’s trying to win her second major title after taking the 2021 Evian Championship.
Harigae shot a 70. England’s Bronte Law was third at 7 under after a 68.
South Korea’s Jin Young Ko and American Nelly Korda, the top players in the world ranking, failed to take advantage of moving day.
The top-ranked Ko struggled with her putter and finished at even-par 71, leaving her tied for fourth place at 6 under with three-time major winner Anna Nordqvist, Xiyu Lin, Lydia Ko, Hye-Jin Choi and amateur Ingrid Lindblad. Lydia Ko had the best round of the day with a 66, while Lin shot 67, Jim Young Ko 71 and Nodqvist and Choi 72.
Korda was 4 under after a 70.
“Definitely not the finish I wanted,” said Korda, who bogeyed the last three holes after battling to get to 7 under. “That was tough. I’m sure that was tough to watch, too.”
It appeared Harigae might make a run when she used a pitching wedge from 115 yards and her ball rolled within an inch from the cup. She tapped in for birdie and moved to 10 under, taking a one-shot lead over Lee.
But that seemed to awaken Lee.
Lee stormed back, making birdies on Nos. 9, 10, 11 and 12 to get to 13 under and took a four-shot lead after Harigae bogeyed 11 and 12. Lee repeatedly outdrove Harigae and used solid approach shots to set up putts of 12, 12, 8 and 6 feet, all of which she made during the four-hole run.
Harigae birdied the 16th to pull within three.
“She hit some great shots the next few holes, and I just couldn’t keep up with that,” Harigae said.
Said Lee: “I didn’t really think about how Mina was playing. I was just trying to make as many birdies as I could just to try and post a good score. I didn’t really notice her playing that much because I was really kind of in my zone.”
Lindblad provided a little excitement early on when she birdied three of her first four holes to move into the tie for the lead at 9 under, creating a buzz around course over whether she could become only the second amateur to win the U.S. Women’s Open and the first since 1967.
However, the LSU player from Sweden played the final 14 holes in 3-over par.
“It was a good start, and then I kind of hit a really bad shot on five and made bogey,” Lindblad said.
If she wins, she would be unable to collect the $1.8 million first-place prize because of her amateur status.
Running back D’Ernest Johnson, Browns agree to 1-year deal
CLEVELAND (AP) Running back D’Ernest Johnson agreed to terms Saturday on a one-year contract with the Cleveland Browns worth up to $2.43 million, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said.
Johnson, who did a nice job filling in last season when Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt were out injured, will get $900,000 guaranteed.
The team placed a restricted free agent tender on Johnson in March. The tender was also worth $2.43 million, but the new deal gives him guaranteed money and the Browns some salary-cap flexibility.
The 26-year-old Johnson rushed for 534 yards and scored three touchdowns last season. He also caught 19 passes for 137 yards. He had his best game when Chubb and Hunt were out, rushing for a career-high 146 yards in a win over Denver.
Johnson gives the Browns added depth behind Chubb and Hunt. Cleveland also drafted Cincinnati’s Jerome Ford in the fifth round this season, and Demetric Felton is working in the backfield and as a wide receiver this offseason.
Johnson has become a fan favorite, partly due to him working on a fishing boat in Florida before making Cleveland’s roster in 2019 as an unsigned free agent.
TOP INDIANA RELEASES
Home Runs Not Enough for Indians in Saturday Night Loss
PAPILLION, Neb. – After a trio of home runs put the Indianapolis Indians up by four runs in the sixth, back-to-back multi-run innings gave the Omaha Storm Chasers a 7-6 comeback victory on Saturday night.
With the score knotted at 2-2 entering the sixth inning, Bligh Madris singled home Canaan Smith-Njigba from third base for his second RBI of the night. Two batters later, with two outs and a pair of runners in scoring position, Hoy Park launched his second home run of the season to straightaway center field to extend the lead to four runs.
A two-run homer off the bat of JaCoby Jones cut the Omaha (27-25) deficit to two runs following a leadoff walk in the bottom half of the sixth. In the Storm Chasers’ offensive half of the seventh, another leadoff walk came to score on a Vinnie Pasquantino one-out single en route to a three-run frame. Two batters later, Clay Dungan roped a two-out, go-ahead double off Hunter Stratton (L, 1-2).
Five of the six Indians (26-26) runs came via the longball. Oneil Cruz smoked his second leadoff home run of the road trip. After Omaha took the lead on a two-run homer by Freddy Fermin in the second, Bligh Madris levelled the contest with a solo shot in the fourth.
Zach Matson made his second career start and first for the Indians, surrendering two earned runs in 2.0 innings. Blake Weiman entered in relief and surrendered just one hit over 3.0 shutout frames before the Storm Chasers’ comeback.
The Indians were held to one hit over the final three innings. Foster Griffin (W, 4-0) fanned three batters over 2.0 shutout innings before Brad Peacock (S, 2) shut things down in the ninth.
Indianapolis and Omaha will face off for the final time of the series tomorrow at 6:05 PM ET at Werner Park. In a rematch of Game 1, RHP Jerad Eickhoff (2-2, 4.58) will take the mound for the Indians against RHP Jackson Kowar (3-3, 5.80).
USL Championship Recap: Charleston Battery 3 : 4 Indy Eleven
MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (Saturday, June 4, 2022) – Indy Eleven (6W-4L-2D) took home three points on the road Saturday night in South Carolina, defeating Charleston Battery 4-3 at Patriots Point. The Boys in Blue were bolstered by a first half hat trick from Manuel Arteaga plus two assists from two-time USL Championship Most Valuable Player Solomon Asante and a goal and assist from Stefano Pinho. The victory lifted Indiana’s Team into a three-way tie for fifth place on 20 points on the Eastern Conference table alongside the Tampa Bay Rowdies and its next opponent, The Miami FC.
While it took some time for both teams to get a feel for the game early on, by the 20th minute the Eleven in particular began to fire on all cylinders. Arteaga’s stunning three-goal performance highlighted the highest scoring half of the season for the Boys in Blue, in which the team netted each of its season-high four goals. Before Arteaga’s hat trick kicked off, it was Pinho who continued his early season hot streak, scoring for a second-consecutive game thanks to a well-placed pass from Asante in front of an open goal in the 21st minute. In his first start for Indy Eleven, Asante notched his second and already team-high third assists of the season, bringing him to a total of 44 in his career that is tied for the second most in USL Championship regular season history.
In the blink of an eye after Pinho’s goal, the Eleven were up 2-0. Arteaga scored the first of his three goals in the 25th minute, making a clinical finish off of a cut in the bottom right corner to double Indy’s lead. Just as quickly as 1-0 turned to 2-0, 2-0 turned to 3-0 thanks again to the heroics of Arteaga. The Venezuelan found the bottom right corner once more following a run down the middle of the pitch by Pinho, opening a lane for Arteaga to finish the job.
Arteaga’s third and final goal of the evening came just two minutes after Charleston’s Augustine Williams scored in the 35th, as he scorched another low ball past Daniel Kuzemka for a hat trick that opened his 2022 scoring account in grand fashion. The hat trick by last year’s leading scorer for Indiana’s Team is the first for an Eleven player during the team’s now four-plus seasons in USL Championship play and just the third all-time, joining Eamon Zayed (2016 NASL regular season) and Blake Smith (2014 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup).
While the Eleven were in control for the majority of the game, Charleston made a furious comeback to make things interesting in the closing moments of the match, this after a pair of apparent finishes by Williams were wiped off the board for justifiable offside calls during the second half. In the 89th minute, Emmanuel Johnson skipped a ball past Bryan Meredith’s right post in the goalkeeper’s first start for the Eleven, bringing the Battery within two.
Just three minutes later, Charleston found the back of the net again, this time with Williams earning his brace out of a scramble in front of the net following a corner. Ultimately it would not be enough as nearly six minutes of added time ran out, giving Indy Eleven its first ever win on the road against Charleston Battery in three tries and its second away victory of the season next to a 2-1 triumph at Rio Grande Valley FC Toros in early April.
Indy Eleven will play the second match of four on its month-long road trip this week, when the Boys in Blue take on The Miami FC in a midweek fixture in South Florida on Wednesday, June 8. The 7:00 p.m. ET kickoff can be viewed live in Central Indiana on MyINDY-TV 23 and seen nationally via live streaming on ESPN+.
Indy Eleven’s next home match will take place during the July 4th weekend, when Indiana’s Team will host Miami for their return match during its “Indy-pendence” Celebration game on Saturday, July 2. The special 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff at Carroll Stadium will be followed by a post-game fireworks display; more details on the evening’s festivities are available at indyeleven.com/promotions.

IRISH POWER PAST NO. 16 GEORGIA SOUTHERN, 6-4
STATESBORO, Ga. — The No. 2 seed Notre Dame baseball team (37-14) battled back from two separate deficits to defeat the No. 16 national seed Georgia Southern (41-19), 6-4, Saturday night at J.I. Clements Stadium. The Irish once again had to deal with a rain delay before they could get started but they came back from a deficit in the third and the sixth to advance to the regional final.
“Great game, the atmosphere was fantastic and the crowd was into it,” said head coach Link Jarrett. “Both teams clearly into it. Proud of the way our guys continue to just grind through. Didn’t know how this was going to shake out.”
The Irish faced their first deficit of the weekend heading into the fourth but solo home runs from Jack Zyska and Jack Brannigan pushed the Irish in front. After giving up three runs in the top of the sixth to relinquish the lead, the Irish tied it right back up in the bottom of the sixth. Zack Prajzner hit a two-run bomb to tie things up.
The game stayed tied until the seventh when the Irish scored two runs after consecutive hit-by-pitches with the bases loaded. The Eagles brought the go-ahead run to the plate in the eighth but Jack Findlay came on and got the final six outs of the game to close the door and advance the Irish to the regional final.
TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY

1920 Citing the abolition of the spitball as the reason for the dramatic increase of home runs, Tom Shibe denies the baseballs are livelier this season. The A’s vice president is also a member of the company which makes the baseballs.
1930 The Indians score nine runs in the first inning en route to a 17-7 victory over Boston. The Tribe bangs out 25 hits, with every starter collecting at least two hits, except for shortstop Carl Lind, who contributes a single in the League Park contest.
1939 Tigers right-hander Tommy Bridges limits the Yankees to just four hits, blanking the Bronx Bombers, 3-0. The shutout will mark the only time an opponent whitewashes New York this season.
1948 In a 6-5 victory at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, Phillies’ outfielder Richie Ashburn extends his consecutive hitting streak to 23 games, tying the major league rookie record. ‘Whitey’ establishes a 20th-century mark, which will be matched this season by Alvin Dark, an infielder with the Braves.
1949 Commissioner Happy Chandler lifts the five-year ban placed on players who jumped to the Mexican League due to the players’ plan to sue for reinstatement on the grounds of an antitrust violation, a challenge the owners do not want to defend due to the existing reserve clause. Lou Klein, who left the first-place Cardinals two months into the 1946 season to play with Vera Cruz, will be the first exile to return to the major leagues when he singles and scores as a pinch-hitter in the Redbirds’ victory over Brooklyn at Sportsman’s Park on June 16th.
1949 In a game put on pause by rain and fans, Boston drops into second place when the team loses to the Cardinals, 8-1, at Braves Field.

1982 Cal Ripken’s span of 8,243 consecutive innings begins with the Orioles’ 3-1 victory over Minnesota at the Metrodome. The infielder’s record streak, which will last for 904 games, ends when he is lifted in the eighth inning for a pinch-runner during an 18-3 September loss to the Blue Jays in 1987.
1985 Retiring the last 16 Angels, Orioles hurler Dennis Martinez tosses a one-hitter, beating California at Memorial Stadium, 4-0. Jerry Narron’s third-inning single spoils the no-hit bid as ‘El Presidente’ notches his 100th career victory.
1986 Casey Candaele makes his major league debut, pinch-hitting for the Expos in a 7-3 loss to Philadelphia at Olympic Stadium.

1989 The Mets select University of Arizona catcher Alan Zinter in the first round of the amateur draft, the 24th overall pick. The collegiate backstop will not play his first major league until 13 years later when he makes his debut with Houston as a 34-year-old pinch-hitter in 2002.
1992 At Three Rivers Stadium, Mets’ first baseman Eddie Murray drives in two runs, passing Yankee legend Mickey Mantle [1,509] as the all-time RBI leader among switch-hitters.
1997 In a 14-6 rout of the Tigers in Detroit, Alex Rodriguez becomes the first Mariner to hit for the cycle in a nine-inning game. In 1993, Jay Buhner accomplished the feat with a 14th inning triple at the Kingdome.
1997 The South Atlantic League’s RiverDogs announce a Father’s Day promotion, which features the opportunity for fans 21 or older, male or female, to register in a drawing for one guy to receive a free vasectomy. The Rays’ Class A affiliate snips the Joseph P. Riley Jr. Ballpark event in the bud after receiving several complaints from fans, including Bishop David Thompson, a season-ticket holder and head of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Charleston, and Monsignor Sam R. Miglarese, the diocese’s vicar-general.

2001 Mike Hampton throws 7.2 innings, giving up nine hits, earning his eighth victory in ten decisions when the Rockies beat the Astros at Coors Field, 9-4. The 28-year-old southpaw helps his cause with home runs in the fifth and sixth innings, both off Houston starter Wade Miller.
2001 The Mets draft Hickory High School (Chesapeake, VA) standout David Wright in the first round of the amateur draft, the 38th pick overall.

2001 In the Red Sox’s 4-3 victory, an 18-inning Fenway Park contest that lasts 5 hours, 52 minutes, the Tigers intentionally walk Manny Ramirez four times, tying an American League record. Yankee outfielder Roger Maris was passed intentionally four times by the Los Angeles Angels in 1962.
2001 By homering in his team’s 57th game, Barry Bonds becomes the fastest player ever to hit 30 home runs. In 1928, it took Babe Ruth 63 games to reach the same mark.
2002 The Houston-based fruit juice subsidiary of The Coca-Cola Company renames Astros Field as Minute Maid Park after acquiring the naming rights to the ballpark for 28 years at an estimated price of $170 million. The original name of the stadium, Enron Field, was dropped in February when the team regained the naming rights by making a deal to pay the debtors of the bankrupt energy corporation the sum of $2.1 million.
2002 Rangers’ designated hitter Juan Gonzalez becomes the 34th major leaguer and the first from Puerto Rico to hit 400 career home runs. Juan Gone’s milestone round-tripper comes off Anaheim hurler Jarrod Washburn’s first pitch in the second inning during a 7-5 extra-inning loss to the Angels.

2003 In the second game of a doubleheader loss to the Brewers, Mets southpaw John Franco pitches an inning of relief to become the eighth pitcher to make a thousand career appearances. The last time Milwaukee swept a twin bill on the road occurred eleven seasons ago when the Brewers of the American League beat the Royals twice on July 5th, 2002, 8-7 and 5-3.
2003 Tony Clark changes his number from 00 to 52. The Mets’ reserve player wanted to give the team’s mascot, Mr. Met, his identity back, as he and the congenial baseball-headed character shared double-digit ought.
2005 For the first time since 1933, a big-league team representing Washington, DC finds itself in first place at this point of the season when the Nationals take the top spot in the National League East. With the team playing so well, the recently transplanted Nats need only 32 games to attract 1,056,642 fans to RFK Stadium, breaking the District’s attendance mark of 1,027,216 in 1946 by the original Senators at Griffith Stadium.
2006 Reds’ slugger Ken Griffey Jr., who has homered in every existing ballpark, hits a round-tripper in his forty-third ballpark to tie the major league record of Fred McGriff. Junior goes deep twice in the new Busch Stadium, including a ninth-inning three-run game-winner off Jason Isringhausen in Cincinnati’s 8-7 victory over the Redbirds.
2008 In a televised game at Fenway Park against the Rays, NESN cameras catch Manny Ramirez and Kevin Youkilis fighting in the dugout. The altercation between the Red Sox teammates results from Manny taking exception to Youkilis’ demonstrative behavior after the third baseman returns to the bench after striking out.
2008 Joining Mickey Mantle and Eddie Murray, Chipper Jones becomes the third switch-hitter in major league history to hit 400 career home runs. The Braves’ third baseman milestone homer is just one of the four hits he contributes to Atlanta’s 7-5 comeback win over Florida.
2008 At Nationals Park, Mark Worrell becomes the eighth player in Cardinals history to hit a home run in his first big-league at-bat. The rookie reliever, who also pitched two scoreless innings, hit his monstrous three-run blast on a 3-2 pitch from Washington’s Tim Redding in the sixth inning of a 10-9 St. Louis loss.
2008 Red Sox outfielder Coco Crisp takes exception getting hit in the hip by Rays’ starter James Shields, showing his displeasure by charging the mound, igniting a bench-clearing brawl resulting in the ejections of the three players and the suspension of eight players. In yesterday’s game, Rays skipper Joe Maddon accused Crisp of intentionally injuring his second baseman Akinori Iwamura on a stolen base attempt.
2008 With the third overall pick, the Royals select American Heritage High School (Plantation, FL) senior Eric Hosmer in the first round of the amateur draft. The slugging first baseman, chosen after infielders Tim Beckham (Rays) and Pedro Alvarez (Pirates), will receive $6 million for signing with Kansas City, the largest bonus given to a draftee in franchise history.
2009 John Schuerholz publicly apologizes to Tom Glavine for the club’s handling of the southpaw’s release. The Braves’ president, who chose not to give the future Hall of Famer a million-dollar bonus by adding him to the 25-man roster, doesn’t regret the decision, but for how “it was portrayed and explained” to the veteran pitcher.
2009 Twitter reaches a settlement with Tony La Russa, who claimed an unauthorized page on the site that used his name caused emotional distress by mocking his DUI charge and minimizing the loss of two players who had died in recent seasons. The Cardinals’ manager drops his lawsuit when the social network agreed to pay legal fees and donate to his Animal Rescue Foundation.
2009 Alex Rios apologizes for shouting profanities, an incident caught on video, when he left a Blue Jays charity event. After appearing to ignore a youngster’s request for an autograph, the Toronto right fielder shouts an epithet when he hears an older man comment, “The way you played today, Alex, you should be lucky somebody wants your autograph.”
2009 Just hours before its scheduled demise, Tiger Stadium is saved from complete demolition when Wayne County Circuit Judge Isidore Torres stops crews from tearing down what’s left of the ballpark at the corner of Michigan and Trumbull Avenues. The Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy requested a temporary restraining order, giving the nonprofit group additional time to raise money to preserve and redevelop the historic ballpark.
2011 Albert Pujols beats the Cubs for the second consecutive day with a dramatic, extra-inning, walk-off home run when he takes a Rodrigo Lopez pitch deep over the left-center field fence, giving the Cardinals a 3-2 victory in 10 innings. Stan Musial is the only other Redbird player to have also accomplished the feat.
2012 On the 11th anniversary of being drafted by the Mets, David Wright becomes the franchise’s all-time run-scorer when he crosses the plate for the 736th time after homering in the team’s 7-6 loss in Washington. New York’s 29-year-old third baseman is already the franchise career leader in doubles, total bases, RBIs, and extra-base hits.
2012 The Royals select Alfredo Escalera-Maldonado in the draft, making the 17 years and 114 days old the youngest player to ever chosen. The 6′ 1″, 180-pound outfielder/third baseman, a National Honor Society student at the Pendleton School in Florida, is an unexpected eighth selection by Kansas City.
2013 The White Sox score five times in the top of the 14th inning, but the Mariners knot the score in the bottom of the frame thanks to Kyle Seager’s two-out, two-strike bases-loaded round-tripper. The third baseman’s homer, the first game-tying, extra-inning grand slam in major league history, isn’t enough when Chicago beats Seattle, 7-5, in the 16-inning Safeco Field contest that takes 5 hours 42 minutes to complete.
2015 Pat Venditte becomes the first full-time switch-pitcher in the modern era when he tosses two scoreless frames in Oakland’s 4-2 loss to the Red Sox at Fenway Park. The A’s ambidextrous reliever faces the minimum six batters in his two innings, allowing a single to Hanley Ramirez before getting an inning-ending double play in the seventh, and then proceeds to pitch a perfect eighth.
2015 In the team’s five-run 10th inning, The Biloxi Shuckers bat around, ending their season-long, 54-game road trip with a 6-2 victory over the Barons at Birmingham’s Regions Field. The Brewers’ Double-A affiliate, who moved from Huntsville to the Mississippi city in the offseason, had to play the first two months on the road because MGM Park, their new home, wasn’t completed at the start of the season.
