Arizona Cardinals defensive back Jeff Gladney dies in crash

DALLAS (AP) Jeff Gladney, a defensive back for the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals, died Monday in a car crash in Dallas. He was 25.

Gladney’s death was confirmed by the Cardinals and his agent.

“We are devastated to learn of Jeff Gladney’s passing. Our hearts go out to his family, friends and all who are mourning this tremendous loss,” the team said.

The crash occurred on the service road of Woodall Rodgers Freeway in Dallas, KTVT-TV reported. Another person also died.

The Dallas County sheriff’s department said no one was available on the Memorial Day holiday to talk about the crash.

Gladney played at TCU before becoming a 2020 first-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings. He played in 16 games that year but was released before the 2021 season, when he was charged with assaulting a woman.

Gladney was found not guilty in Dallas County, Texas, in March and was subsequently signed by the Cardinals. He participated in team drills last week.

“We are asking prayers for the family and privacy at this most difficult time,” agent Brian Overstreet said.

The NFL said Gladney’s death was a “tragic loss.”

Brewers take 2 from Cubs, Taylor HRs in both, Ashby fans 12

CHICAGO (AP) Tyrone Taylor homered in both games, Aaron Ashby struck out a career-high 12 in the nightcap and the Milwaukee Brewers swept a doubleheader from the Chicago Cubs 7-6 and 3-1 Monday.

Luis Urias lined three-run homer into the basket in left-center to break a seventh-inning tie in the opener. The Brewers trailed 4-2 before Taylor’s two-run homer in the sixth off Matt Swarmer.

Milwaukee led 2-1 in the second game when Taylor homered off left-hander Brandon Hughes in the eighth.

“Everyday playing baseball is fun, man,” said Taylor, who also made a terrific catch in right field to end the sixth inning in the second game. “It was a fun day … a long day but a fun day.”

Taylor went deep in consecutive games for the third time in his career and now has seven homers for the season. He’s 10 for 31 with three homers and 10 RBIs in his last nine games, all on the road.

“That catch kind of gets us out of an inning, then the homer to give us some breathing room,” Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said. “He had a wonderful day and he’s had a wonderful road trip.”

Victor Caratini hit a tiebreaking home run in the fifth inning against his former team, and the Brewers won their third in a row while getting just three hits in the nightcap. The Cubs extended their losing streak to three.

Ashby (1-3) allowed one run and five hits six-plus innings, giving up Willson Contreras’ home run over the left-field bleachers and onto Waveland Avenue in the fourth.

“This is what we think Aaron is going to be,” Counsell said. “He’s throwing the ball real well and he’s just got big-time stuff.

It was a nice follow-up for Ashby, who tossed 5 2/3 innings and allowed only one run in his previous start last Wednesday.

He left with the bases loaded in the seventh, and Brad Boxberger struck out pinch hitter Nico Hoerner and got Andrelton Simmons to ground into a 5-2-3 double-play.

“I owe some guys something,” Ashby said. “Steak dinners or something. Tyrone with that unbelievable catch. An awesome job by Box getting the strikeout and the ground ball.”

Josh Hader remained perfect in 18 save chances by getting his second of the day.

“I’ve been pretty fresh this month, so I felt like I was able to do it and I bounce back pretty well,” Hader said. “Give it a go, you know, and see what happens from there.”

Chicago’s Drew Smyly pitched three hitless innings in the second game, but left with right oblique soreness at the start of the fourth. Anderson Espinoza (0-1), a 24-year-old right-hander making his major league debut, allowed two runs and two hits in four innings.

“A couple of misfires there, but a really big outing for us, and to keep us in that ballgame, that was huge,” Chicago manager David Ross said of Espinoza.

The first game was tied at 4 when Mike Brosseau singled off Daniel Norris (0-3) with two outs and Kolten Wong walked. Urias hit a 3-2 slider for a drive that barely made it over the ivy, his fifth homer this season. Jace Peterson also hit a long solo drive for Milwaukee.

Swarmer and Milwaukee’s Ethan Small made their big league debuts in the opener. It marked the first time in Brewers history that both starters made their debuts and the first for the Cubs since 1944.

Swarmer allowed four runs (one earned), five hits and one walk in six innings. Small was charged with two runs and four hits with four strikeouts in 2 2/3 innings.

Rafael Ortega finished with three hits.

Miguel Sanchez (1-1) gave up one hit in two scoreless innings.

NIFTY GRAB

A video review confirmed Taylor’s leaping catch of a fly ball from Frank Schwindel. Taylor ran, timed his jump into the wall and fell to the warning track. The ball squeezed up and nearly out of Taylor’s glove.

“I didn’t know I had it all the way, but I was confident,” Taylor said. “I was certain that caught it, so I was a little tripped out that they challenged.”

BACK TO THE FARM

The Brewers optioned Small to Triple-A Nashville between games, then selected the contact of RHP Luke Barker to fill the roster spot.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Brewers: Placed RHP Brandon Woodruff on the 15-day IL with a right high ankle sprain a move retroactive to Saturday. Woodruff a two-time All-Star, sustained the injury on Friday at St. Louis. He’s 5-3 with a 4.74 ERA in nine games this season. The Brewers recalled RHP Peter Strzelecki from Triple-A Nashville.

Cubs: Placed rookie OF Seiya Suzuki on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to Friday, with a left ring finger sprain. Suzuki was injured in Thursday’s game against the Reds. . Placed OF Jonathan Villar on the 10-day IL, retroactive to Friday, with a mouth injury incurred while training. … Transferred RHP Ethan Roberts (right shoulder inflammation) to the 60-day IL.

UP NEXT

LHP Eric Lauer (5-1, 2.31) is scheduled to start for the Brewers on Tuesday and LHP Justin Steele (1-5, 5.40) for the Cubs.

Schoop 3rd from Curaçao with 1,000 hits, Tigers top Twins

DETROIT (AP) Jonathan Schoop became the third player from Curacao with 1,000 major league hits and finished a home run shy of the cycle, helping the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 7-5 on Monday in the opener of a five-game series.

Schoop, a 30-year-old infielder in his 10th big league season, singled in the third inning, doubled in the fifth for his 1,000th hit and tripled leading off the seventh as part of a 3-for-5 afternoon that lifted his average from .173 to .185.

Schoop joined Andruw Jones (1,933) and Andrelton Simmons (1,163 through Sunday) as players from Curacao with 1,000 hits,

“It’s a great feeling, because that’s always been one of my personal goals,” Schoop said. “It feels even better in a win.”

Rookie Spencer Torkelson, another slumping Tigers player, had his first three-hit game with two singles and a double. His seventh-inning RBI infield single off Joe Smith (0-1) put the Tigers ahead 5-4, aided by first baseman Jose Miranda badly overthrowing Smith as the pitcher covered first.

“That’s probably the biggest play of the game, and it ended up with a young guy who isn’t very experienced at first base,” Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said. “It might be the toughest play for an infielder, but there are tricks you learn to help you make it. Jose doesn’t have that knowledge yet, and it costs us there.

Willi Castro followed with another run-scoring single.

Gio Urshela cut the deficit with an RBI double in the eighth against Alex Lange, and Javier Baez had a run-scoring single in the bottom half to restore a two-run lead.

“We put the ball in play, and even though it wasn’t always hard contact, we were creating action,” Tigers manager AJ Hinch said. “There was a lot to like today, and that’s where it starts.

“This is a very good way to kick off a long series against a division rival.”

Detroit overcame a 3-1 deficit and scored more than four runs for the first time since May 15.

“We put together some really good at-bats and passed the baton,” Schoop said. “That’s how we need to play on a consistent basis. If we do that, we’ll be right back in this.”

Joe Jimenez (2-0) pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings of one-hit relief. Gregory Soto worked around Nick Gordon’s leadoff single in the ninth for his ninth save in 10 chances.

Tigers starter Beau Briske remained 0-4 in seven big league starts, allowing four runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings.

Twins starter Dylan Bundy gave up four runs and nine hits in six innings, throwing a season-high 95 pitches.

“As a pitcher, you try to limit hard contact, and I thought I did a pretty good job of that,” Bundy said. “It just seemed like every time they made soft contact, it was at an empty spot on the field.”

Gary Sanchez homered leading off the second, Derek Hill’s first home run of the season tied the score in the third and Miranda gave Minnesota a 3-1 lead with a two-run homer in the fourth.

Torkelson’s RBI double and Castro’s run-scoring single tied the score in the bottom half, and Jeimer Candelario’s single put the Tigers ahead in the fifth.

Urshela’s homer made it 4-4 in the sixth.

Hill nearly homered again in the ninth, but his drive down the left-field line was ruled foul after a replay review. He walked and scored on Baez’s single.

TRAINER’S ROOM

TWINS: The Twins placed INF Royce Lewis (knee) on the 10-day IL and recalled Miranda from Triple-A St. Paul. … Byron Buxton and Carlos Correa both had scheduled days off before Tuesday’s day-night doubleheader. Buxton pinch hit in the ninth inning, but Correa’s COVID test came back positive during the game, and he will miss the rest of the series. … OF Max Kepler sat out with a sore quadriceps. Baldelli is hoping to have Kepler available for at least one of Tuesday’s games.

TIGERS: The Tigers placed OF Robbie Grossman (neck) on the injured list and recalled INF Kody Clemens, a son of seven-time Cy Young Award winner, from Triple-A Toledo for a possible big league debut. Miguel Cabrera (back) was given an extra day of rest.

BUXTON’S STRUGGLES CONTINUE

After striking out in the ninth, Buxton is 0-for-22 with seven strikeouts this season against the Tigers. Baldelli, though, said that had nothing to do with Buxton not starting on Monday.

“I had no idea that was even the case until just now, and I will probably have forgotten about it five minutes from now,” he said. “That certainly didn’t play any role in my thinking.”

UP NEXT

The teams play a day-night doubleheader on Tuesday. Detroit RHP Rony Garcia (0-0, 3.00) will face Minnesota LHP Devin Smeltzer (1-0, 1.04) in the first game, while the Tigers are expected to start LHP Joey Wentz (0-1, 20.25) in the nightcap against RHP Cole Sands (0-0, 6.75).

Giménez homers, Guardians overcome rookie’s gaffe to beat KC

CLEVELAND (AP) Oscar Gonzalez bounced off the padded wall and the rookie outfielder casually flipped the ball into the stands, thinking the inning was over.

When he got back to Cleveland’s dugout, Guardians manager Terry Francona had a question.

“I just asked him `I haven’t been to Triple-A in a while,'” Francona said. ‘”Do they make you get three outs there?'”

Fortunately, the Guardians could laugh off Gonzalez’s gaffe.

Andres Gimenez hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning off Kansas City rookie Collin Snider and Jose Ramirez drove in three more runs, sending Cleveland to a 7-3 win over the injury-riddled Royals on Monday night.

Gimenez’s shot to center field off Snider (3-2) scored pinch-runner Ernie Clement and Gonzalez, who singled in the inning to make up for a bone-headed play in the sixth when he tossed the ball into the stands with two outs.

“There’s a lot of emotions happening in these types of games,” said Gonzalez, who was playing in his fourth major league game. “I was listening to the crowd and I thought there were two outs so I wanted to do something. I was able to flush it and focus on the next AB and help the team.”

Trailing 3-1 in the sixth, the Royals had a runner at first when Gonzalez made a nice play by tracking Salvador Perez’s slicing drive and making a catch in the right-field corner.

After making the grab, Gonzalez nonchalantly threw the ball to a fan, convinced there were three outs. Upon realizing his mistake, Gonzalez crouched like a catcher and bit the top of his glove.

“Honestly. I was like, `Oh, I screwed (up),'” Gonzalez said. “But my mind went to, ‘I hope he hits to me and I can make the inning over.'”

Andrew Benintendi was awarded two bases on Gonzalez’s mental error, but starter Zach Plesac, who pitched six solid innings, buckled down and struck out MJ Melendez to end the threat.

Plesac didn’t feel the need to say anything to Gonzalez afterward.

“Nothing came out of it so it was one of those, just kind of smile it off,” he said. “I’m not looking at him like, `Come on dude, you need to do better.’ He learned from it. He understood. He knew what he did. We got out of it with no runs, unscathed.”

Ramirez hit his 13th homer – a two-run shot in the fifth – and raised his major league-leading total to 51 RBIs. He reached 50 RBIs in 44 games, the second fastest in team history behind Manny Ramirez, who did in 38 games in 1999.

“He’s the best player in the game, hands down,” Plesac said. “I don’t care who wants to challenge him. He hits from both sides of the plate. He doesn’t strike out. He does his job and he puts up runs, so it’s phenomenal.”

Nick Sandlin (4-2) got the win in relief.

Emmanuel Rivera homered for the Royals, who rallied in the eighth but couldn’t stop from falling to 16-31 – the AL’s worst record. Before the game, Kansas City made roster moves involving eight players.

Down 3-1, Kansas City tied it in the eighth on back-to-back RBI doubles by Whit Merrifield and Benintendi that tied it 3-3.

But in Cleveland’s half, Josh Naylor drew a one-out walk off Snider, and Gonzalez singled to right before Gimenez drove a 3-2 sinker from Snider over the wall in straightaway center for his fifth homer.

The Guardians tacked on a fourth run on a throwing error by Royals rookie shortstop Bobby Witt Jr.

“We got into a spot where we had to fight back and the guys did a great job with that late in the game against a good bullpen and gave us a chance,” Royals manager Mike Matheny said. “Unfortunately a one-out walk put us in a bit of a bind and then a pitch that wasn’t where we wanted it to be ended up being the home run.”

MUSIC MAN

Gonzalez’s choice for walk-up music raised some eyebrows.

It the theme song from “SpongeBob SquarePants.”

Why?

“Because kids love that song and this is a kid’s game after all,” he said. “I’ve had it since Triple-A.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Royals: Veteran RHP Zack Greinke was placed on the 15-day IL with a strained right forearm, one of several roster roster moves before the series opener. The 38-year-old Greinke complained of tightness in his arm following Sunday’s start in Minnesota. Greinke’s 0-4 with a 5.05 ERA.

Guardians: There’s still no timetable for DH Franmil Reyes (hamstring) to return from the injured list. He met with trainers, strength and conditioning coaches and Francona to map out a long-term plan. … RHP Aaron Civale (strained gluteus) underwent another MRI after throwing a side session in anticipation of a scheduled rehab start at Triple-A Columbus Tuesday. Francona said Civale didn’t feel ready to “ramp up” to game intensity so the team decided to have him checked further.

UP NEXT

Cleveland’s most consistent starter despite a lack of run support, RHP Cal Quantrill (1-3) starts Tuesday against Royals LHP Daniel Lynch (2-3).

Pirates rally in 9th inning for wild 6-5 win over Dodgers

LOS ANGELES (AP) Michael Perez hit a tying single in the ninth inning and pinch-runner Michael Chavis scored the go-ahead run on Freddie Freeman’s error to give the Pittsburgh Pirates a wild 6-5 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night.

The Dodgers scored twice in the eighth to take their only lead before the Pirates charged right back against closer Craig Kimbrel (0-1), who was handed his first blown save of the season.

The Pirates have beaten the Dodgers in three of four games this month. Pittsburgh manager Derek Shelton earned his 100th career victory. He was hired in November 2019.

The loss snapped the Dodgers’ four-game winning streak. They were coming off an 8-2 road trip that included a four-game sweep of Arizona.

With one out, Diego Castillo walked and moved to second on Kimbrel’s wild pitch that went to the backstop. Perez singled to deep right field, scoring Castillo, and advanced to second on the throw home.

Chavis scored the go-ahead run on Freeman’s error when a ball hit by Cal Mitchell went off the first baseman’s glove.

The Dodgers weren’t done yet.

Mookie Betts’ ground-rule double in the ninth off David Bednar (2-1) put the potential tying run in scoring position. With fans chanting his first name, Freeman drew a seven-pitch walk, putting the potential go-ahead run on.

Betts stayed put on Trea Turner’s long fly to right field for the second out. Will Smith struck out swinging to end an 0-for-5 performance.

The Dodgers trailed 4-0 early and briefly took the lead in the eighth against Bednar.

Turner doubled leading off as the ball popped out of second baseman Castillo’s glove as he went to tag Turner, who slid headfirst into the bag. After Smith flied out and Edwin Rios struck out, Justin Turner doubled to left-center, scoring Trea Turner with the tying run.

Chris Taylor, who entered as a defensive replacement in the seventh, followed with a bloop single to right-center, scoring Justin Turner and giving the Dodgers a 5-4 lead.

Tucupita Marcano hit a three-run homer, his first in the majors, in the second inning off Walker Buehler to give the Pirates a 3-0 lead.

The Pirates made it 4-0 in the third with a solo shot by Bryan Reynolds on the first pitch from Buehler.

Pirates starter Zach Thompson allowed two runs and four hits in 5 2/3 innings. The right-hander struck out four and walked one.

The Dodgers had the potential tying and go-ahead runs in scoring position in the seventh. With two outs, Hanser Alberto reached on an infield single to shortstop off reliever Dillon Peters. He walked Betts before Freeman hit a chopper to Peters, who threw underhand to first to end the threat.

The Dodgers trailed 4-2 in the fifth after consecutive two-out homers by Alberto and Betts. It was the third time this season the team homered back-to-back.

Buehler gave up four runs and seven hits in six innings. He struck out seven and walked one.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Dodgers: OF Cody Bellinger was removed from the lineup before the game with left leg tightness. Kevin Pillar started in center field. … LHP Clayton Kershaw (pelvis) threw a 35-pitch bullpen. “He was outstanding,” manager Dave Roberts said. Kershaw will throw another bullpen in a few days and go on a rehab assignment. … LHP Andrew Heaney (shoulder discomfort) threw a 35-pitch simulated game. He’ll throw a side session this week before going on a rehab assignment Friday. … 1B Max Muncy (left elbow inflammation) will return to the team’s spring training site in Arizona later this week. He didn’t swing a bat during the four-game series against the Diamondbacks. “We don’t want to put a (recovery) time on him,” Roberts said.

PIRATES MOVES

Infielder Yu Chang was acquired from Cleveland for cash and added to the active roster before the game. To make room for Chang, infielder-outfielder Hoy Park was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis.

UP NEXT

Pirates: Had not announced a starter for Tuesday.

Dodgers: LHP Julio Urias (3-4, 2.49 ERA) faced the Pirates for the first time in his career earlier this month, allowing two runs and 11 hits in six innings.

Gorman’s 2-run homer, 3 hits lift Cardinals over Padres 6-3

ST. LOUIS (AP) Fast-starting Nolan Gorman hit a go-ahead, two-run homer, rookie Andre Pallante got his first big league win in his 17th appearance and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the San Diego Padres 6-3 on Monday.

Paul Goldschmidt, batting just behind Gorman in the No. 3 slot, also hit two-run homer for the Cardinals.

Gorman, a 22-year-old who was the 19th overall pick in the 2018 amateur draft, made his major league debut on May 20 and hit his first home run Saturday off Milwaukee’s Adrian Houser. Gorman homered on a changeup from Nick Martinez (2-3) for a 2-1 lead in the third inning, had his second three-hit game and is batting .387.

“You got to be able to adapt super quickly,” Gorman said. “There’s quick adjustments that have to be made. Part of my game is drive in runs and hit the ball hard and far. Big thing for me to do is get a big pitch to hit and do some damage.”

He singled in the first but was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double. He also walked.

“He can put a little fear in that opposing side at any time,” St. Louis manager Oliver Marmol said. “He can leave the yard.”

Pallante, a 23-year-old right-hander, allowed one run and five hits over 3 1/3 innings with a career-high five strikeouts and no walks. He was the second of five pitchers in an all-bullpen game for the starting pitcher-short Cardinals.

“It’s pretty cool,” Pallante said. “I’ve been pitching here for a while. It’s kind of worn off a little bit. My dream was always to pitch in the major leagues. Once I got comfortable doing that, the wins and that stuff falls to the wayside. I just want to keep pitching well.”

Pallante gave his father baseballs from his first game and his first strikeout. The pitcher is keeping the ball from his first win.

“I’ve learned a lot about how to be a reliever. I’ve had bad outings and I’ve had good outings,” he said. “What I’ve been trying to learn is how to eliminate the bad outings. I’ve been learning from the experienced guys.”

Goldschmidt hit his 11th home run of the season, a seventh-inning drive off Steven Wilson that was his fifth in seven games. Goldschmidt is batting .352 with a 21-game hitting streak and has reached base safely in a career-high 35 consecutive games, the longest streak in the major leagues this season.

Goldschmidt has 32 RBIs in May, and 17 of his last 29 hits have been for extra bases (nine home runs and eight doubles).

“Any time you help the team win, it’s a good thing,” Goldschmidt said. “I just try to keep doing my job. I just try to stay in the moment.”

His 22 extra base hits this month tie him with Stan Musial (1954) and Albert Pujols (2009) for the most in any May in Cardinals history.

Before the home run, Goldschmidt popped up to second in the fifth. During a pitching change in the sixth, Marmol teased him about it.

“I was starting to think you’re not human,” Marmol recalled telling Goldschmidt. “He’s able to laugh. He has a complete and another level of confidence. What he’s doing right now is highly impressive.”

Packy Naughton, recalled from Triple-A Memphis, started for the Cardinals and went 2 1/3 innings. He fell behind on a third-inning RBI single by Jurickson Profar, who had three hits.

“We’re fighting to get hits, ” Padres manager Bob Melvin said. “We’re just not getting the big blow..”

Giovanny Gallegos and Genesis Cabrera each pitched a scoreless inning, and Ryan Helsley got four outs, allowing Manny Machado’s RBI single in the ninth.

“That was a huge job by our bullpen,” Goldschmidt said. “It was a great job by all those pitchers. We needed it.”

Tommy Edman boosted the lead to 3-1 with an RBI single in the fifth, but Austin Nola’s run-scoring single cut the gap in the sixth.

Yadier Molina added an RBI double in the three-run seventh.

Martinez gave up three runs and seven hits in six innings.

“I thought it went well for the most part,” Martinez said. “My stuff felt good. I felt like I was attacking the zone well. I’m not going to give in or give up.”

MILESTONE WATCH

Albert Pujols played in the 2,997th game and is four from tying Cal Ripkin Jr. for eighth. Pujols needs two hits to match Paul Molitor for ninth at 3,319 … Molina is one at-bat from tying Johnny Bench at 7,658 for fifth among primary catcher.

CARDS, PADRES ON MEMORIAL DAY HOLIDAY

The only prior time the Cardinals and Padres faced off on Memorial Day before was back in 1975 at Busch Stadium II. San Diego scored a 9-6 victory in a game that Bob Gibson started and Lou Brock recorded a double and stolen base.

ROSTER MOVE

Cardinals: Jake Woodford was optioned to Memphis.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Padres: 3B Machado was back in the starting lineup after missing two games with what the club described as the effects of tennis elbow in his right arm. … RF Wil Meyers, who missed Sunday’s game with right knee inflammation, ran before the game. … RHP Mike Clevinger (right triceps strain) is on track to rejoin the club during its June 2-5 series in Milwaukee.

Cardinals: CF Harrison Bader was back in the Cardinals’ lineup Monday. He missed Sunday’s game against Milwaukee when he was ill. … LF Tyler O’Neill (right shoulder impingement) is back to swinging the bat in the cage. His throwing program is progressing. O’Neill may begin a rehab assignment Tuesday.

UP NEXT

Paadres: LHP Blake Snell (0-2, 6.00) will be making his third start of the year. In his last start, he gave up three earned runs in 5 1/3 in a 4-1 loss to Milwaukee.

Cardinals: RHP Adam Wainwright (5-4, 2.13) will be facing the Padres for the first time this season and 18th time. He is 6-0 with a 1.73 ERA in eight starts and two relief appearances against San Diego during the regular season at Busch Stadium, never allowing a home run in 58 2/3 innings.

Kody Clemens brought up by Tigers for possible MLB debut

DETROIT (AP) Kody Clemens, the 26-year-old son of seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens, was brought up by the Detroit Tigers on Monday for a possible major league debut.

Roger Clemens planned to be at Comerica Park on Tuesday, when his son could make his debut.

“He’s scrambling and trying to figure out when he’s going to fly here,” Kody Clemens said after Detroit’s 7-5 win on Monday. “He loved it. He was like `You’re a big leaguer, kid.'”‘

Clemens was assigned No. 21, which hs father wore with Boston from 1984-96 and with Toronto for the following two seasons before switching to No. 22 with the New York Yankees and Houston.

“Obviously, I’m trying to create my own career path here, but to wear his number is awesome,” Kody Clemens said. “Luckily, we always say that I’m glad I’m a hitter, not a pitcher, so I don”t have to live up to what he did. Half a career as his is unbelievable.”

Detroit recalled the infielder/outfielder from Triple-A Toledo of the International League and put outfielder Robbie Grossman on the 10-day injured list because of a strained neck.

Clemens is expected to start in the second game of Tuesday’s doubleheader against Minnesota, when right-hander Cole Sands is slated to be on the mound for the Twins.

A third round pick in the 2018 amateur draft, Clemens was hitting .283 at Toledo with eight homers and 31 RBIs in 45 games. Drafted as a second baseman, he has played first, second, third and left this season.

“As soon as we got A.J. (Hinch) a couple years back, he took me into his office and just said, `Hey, do you play anywhere else?'” Clemens said. “I was like, I really played a lot of third in college. I’ll play third base, outfield, wherever you want.”

Detroit needed depth because of Grossman’s injury and Miguel Cabrera’s bad back.

Roger Clemens was an 11-time All-Star who won 354 games in a major league career from 1984-2007 and struck out 4,672, third behind Nolan Ryan and Randy Johnson.

Among the players implicated in the 2007 Mitchell Report, Roger Clemens denied using performance-enhancing drugs. In 2012, he was acquitted of charges he lied to Congress when he denied allegations of PED use.

VOLUNTEERS’ DOMINANCE EARNS THEM NO. 1 SEED IN NCAA BASEBALL

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) After finishing one of the most dominant runs in Southeastern Conference history, Tennessee was selected the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA baseball tournament Monday.

The Volunteers (53-7) won 31 of their first 32 games, swept the SEC regular-season and tournament titles and have the best pitching and batting statistics in the nation.

They’ve been the consensus No. 1 team in the polls all but one week since March 28 and enter regionals having won eight straight and 12 of 13.

“It’s really cool to win the SEC Tournament,” Vols slugger Drew Gilbert said, “but we have bigger goals in mind and know we still have a lot of baseball in front of us.”

The 64-team tournament opens Friday in 16 regionals. Winners advance to eight best-of-three super regionals. Those winners move on to the College World Series in Omaha.

The top eight national seeds are assured of hosting super regionals if they win their regionals.

The national seeds following Tennessee: Stanford (41-14), Oregon State (44-15), Virginia Tech (41-12), Texas A&M (37-18), Miami (39-18), Oklahoma State (39-20) and East Carolina (42-18).

Stanford, which won the Pac-12 regular-season and tournament titles, is a national seed for the first time since it was No. 2 in 2018. Oregon State gives the Pac-12 two of the top three seeds for the first time.

Virginia Tech, which was picked second to last in the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Coastal Division, has its highest seed in program history and will be playing in a regional for the first time since 2013.

Texas A&M won its last seven SEC series under first-year coach Jim Schlossnagle to lock up a national seed after not making the tournament last year.

East Carolina will play in the tournament for a 32nd time. The Pirates hold the distinction of having made the most appearances without reaching a CWS.

Seeds nine through 16: Texas (42-19), North Carolina (38-19), Southern Mississippi (43-16), Louisville (38-18-1), Florida (39-22), Auburn (37-19), Maryland (45-12) and Georgia Southern (40-18).

The ACC and SEC had the most teams selected, with nine apiece. The Big 12 and Pac-12 each got five teams in, and the Sun Belt Conference has four teams in the field.

Tennessee opens regional play against Alabama State (34-23). The other teams playing in Knoxville are Campbell (40-17) and Georgia Tech (34-22).

The Vols’ surge to their best season in program history, so far, comes in coach Tony Vitello’s fifth season. First baseman Luc Lipcius, a graduate student playing his sixth season, was on the 2017 team under Dave Serrano that went 7-21 in SEC play.

“When I came in here we weren’t expected to do much we were kind of the laughingstock of the SEC,” Lipcius said. “Coach V and the staff came in and did their thing. They recruit players and make them better. It’s really awesome to see it come full circle.”

The last four teams picked for regionals were Florida State, Grand Canyon, Liberty and Mississippi. The first four out were North Carolina State, Old Dominion, Rutgers and Wofford.

Selection committee chairman and Army athletic director Mike Buddie said Ole Miss got the nod over N.C. State because it performed a bit stronger in regular-season conference series.

N.C. State and Ole Miss each won four of 10 conference series, but only one of the Wolfpack’s was against a team in the NCAA field (Georgia Tech) while the Rebels had series wins over LSU and Auburn.

“That was a brutal one,” Buddie said. “When it comes down to the last three or four teams, you have to really split hairs. Baseball is a game played in series. We weren’t looking at one-game scenarios unless that was the only data point.”

Other notes about the tournament:

– Florida State has the longest consecutive streak with 44 straight appearances. Other notable consecutive streaks include Vanderbilt (16) and Florida (14).

– Coppin State (24-28) and Hofstra (30-21) are making their first appearances. Air Force (30-27) is making its first since 1969.

– The best regional storyline could be a day two meeting between Texas A&M and TCU in College Station. Schlossnagle left TCU for the Aggies’ job after last season. TCU’s coach is Kirk Saarloos, who was an assistant under Schlossnagle for 10 years.

– Michigan (32-26) was one of the big bid stealers, swiping the Big Ten’s automatic berth by winning the conference tournament as the fifth seed and denying Rutgers a spot.

– Coppin State is among three teams with losing records. The others are Binghamton (22-28) and New Mexico State (24-32).

AT FRENCH OPEN, SWIATEK LOSES SET, EXTENDS MATCH WIN STREAK

PARIS (AP) The loss of one set by a player is normally not the stuff of headlines at a Grand Slam tournament. That did constitute news at the French Open on Monday, because the player was No. 1-ranked Iga Swiatek and it had been more than a month since that happened to her.

The way it came about was noteworthy, too: She led the first set of her fourth-round match against 74th-ranked Zheng Qinwen of China 3-0, then 5-2, and was a point from claiming it on five occasions but could not seal the deal. Swiatek entered the day having won 20 sets in a row, and 48 of her preceding 49.

All that truly mattered, in the end, was that 2020 champion Swiatek would not lose another set on this cloudy evening, getting past the hard-swinging Zheng 6-7 (5), 6-0, 6-2 to return to the quarterfinals at Roland Garros and run her winning streak to 32 consecutive matches.

“I’m pretty happy I could come back after a pretty frustrating first set when I had the lead,” Swiatek said. “Pretty happy with myself that I’m still in the tournament.”

Swiatek regrouped by changing tactics – she sped up her forehand instead of absorbing Zheng’s power – and in a less conventional way, too, deciding to change her tune. No, really: She switched which song she was singing in her head during the match.

“It was Dua Lipa,” Swiatek said, “so kind of a guilty pleasure.”

She has won her past five tournaments, going unbeaten since February for the WTA’s longest such stretch since Serena Williams compiled a 34-match run in 2013. With 23-time Grand Slam champion Williams absent from the tour for nearly a year, and Swiatek’s predecessor atop the rankings, two-time major winner Ash Barty, having recently retired, there is no dominant figure in women’s tennis to mount a challenge.

Next to try to stop Swiatek will be 11th-seeded Jessica Pegula, who advanced to her third major quarterfinal – and first in Paris – with a 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 victory over Irina-Camelia Begu of Romania, who was fined $10,000 last week when she threw her racket and it bounced into the stands, brushing a child in a front-row seat.

Pegula, owner of a 2-3 record at Roland Garros before this year, saw two sides to taking on Swiatek, who beat her on a hard court at the Miami Open in March.

“Sometimes you’re like, `Oh, I wish I didn’t play her in the quarterfinals. I wish I played one of the other people and didn’t meet her so early,'” Pegula said. “But at the same time, it’s a great chance to have a great win and a great story.”

The other women’s quarterfinal Wednesday will be between two Russians: No. 20 Daria Kasatkina and No. 29 Veronika Kudermetova. They were teammates on the team that won the Billie Jean King Cup last year – Russia was barred from trying to defend that title because of the country’s invasion of Ukraine – and have known each other since they were kids, squaring off as juniors as long ago as 2011.

Pegula, whose parents own the NFL’s Buffalo Bills and NHL’s Buffalo Sabres, joins two other American women in the quarterfinals.

Coco Gauff, an 18-year-old seeded 18th, and Sloane Stephens, the 2017 U.S. Open champion and 2018 French Open runner-up, face each other on Tuesday, when the other women’s matchup will be No. 17 Leylah Fernandez, a 19-year-old from Canada, against 54th-ranked Martina Trevisan of Italy.

The most-anticipated men’s quarterfinal will be the 59th career meeting between defending champion Novak Djokovic and 13-time champion Rafael Nadal on Tuesday night. Also Tuesday, No. 3 Alexander Zverev plays No. 6 Carlos Alcaraz, a 19-year-old from Spain.

Men’s matches Wednesday are No. 7 Andrey Rublev against 2014 U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic, and Holger Rune, a 19-year-old from Denmark, against No. 8 Casper Ruud, a 23-year-old from Norway. Cilic swept past 2021 U.S. Open champion Daniil Medvedev 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 in Monday’s last match, adding the departure of the men’s No. 2 seed to that of No. 4 Stefanos Tsitsipas earlier in the day. With Rune, who eliminated 2021 runner-up Tsitsipas 7-5, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, and Alcaraz still in the field, it’s the first time in 28 years that two teens made the men’s quarterfinals at any Grand Slam tournament.

Zheng is 19, and Swiatek is just 20. Both are capable of playing like veterans.

Zheng, though, said she found it “tough to show my level,” because of stomach cramps and an issue with her right leg, which was taped by a trainer during a medical timeout at 3-0 in the second set. That was during a span where Swiatek grabbed eight straight games.

When it ended, Swiatek screamed “Come on!” and shook her right fist as she looked at the excited faces in her guest box.

“For sure, these matches are emotional for everybody,” she said, “because they are tight and not easy.”

Been a while since that was the case for her.

ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI SAYS TIME AT BAYERN MUNICH IS ‘OVER’

WARSAW, Poland (AP) Robert Lewandowski’s time at Bayern Munich appears to be over.

The Poland striker, who has been linked with a move to Barcelona, said at a news conference ahead of his national team’s training camp on Monday that a transfer would be the best outcome for all sides.

“As of today one thing is certain, that my story with Bayern Munich is over and after everything that took place in recent months I cannot imagine further good cooperation,” said Lewandowski, whose contract with the Bavarian club runs for another season.

His comments over what took place in recent months may have referred to Bayern’s offer to extend his contract, an idea he rejected.

Lewandowski added: “I am aware the transfer will be the best solution for both parties. I believe that Bayern will not stop me (forcibly) just because it has the opportunity.”

He was speaking in Warsaw ahead of Poland’s Nations League match against Wales on Wednesday.

Sitting next to him, Poland coach Czeslaw Michniewicz said: “It looks today that Bayern will use this year of contract and Robert will have to stay. The sooner it is sorted out the better for Robert because he will have his head clear and will focus on the work.

“I am sure that a new impulse in the form of a change of league and surroundings will have only good effects on Robert and he will be able to pursue his dreams.”

The 33-year-old forward previously told Polish broadcaster Eleven Sports it would be “hard to know if I’ll still be playing for Bayern next season.”

Lewandowski’s agent, Pini Zahavi, and Barcelona have reportedly verbally agreed on a three-year deal but Bayern has been firm in its stance that the player is not for sale.

Lewandowski’s latest comments – his strongest yet – are unlikely to be well received in Munich, where Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic and chief executive Oliver Kahn have both said he will fulfil his contract.

He has scored 312 goals in 384 Bundesliga games for Bayern and former club Borussia Dortmund.

Lewandowski hit 35 goals in 34 appearances last season to become the Bundesliga’s leading scorer for the fifth season in a row, and the seventh time overall.

He broke the old record for Bundesliga goals in a season with 41 last year.

TOP INDIANA SPORTS RELEASES

#14 IRISH EARN POSTSEASON BID, HEAD TO STATESBORO REGIONAL

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The 14th-ranked Notre Dame baseball team is back in the postseason for the second-consecutive season and the 23rd time overall as they were selected as the No. 2 seed in the Statesboro Regional. This is the first time since 2005-06, back when the Irish were in the BIG EAST, that the Irish have earned consecutive postseason berths.

The Irish (35-14) are joined in the regional by No. 16 national seed and host Georgia Southern (40-18) from the Sun Belt Conference, Texas Tech (37-20) from the Big 12 Conference and UNC Greensboro (34-28) from the Southern Conference.

The Irish will open the regional against Texas Tech on Friday at 2 p.m. ET from J.I. Clements Stadium in Statesboro. The game will be aired nationally on the ACC Network.

TODAY IN BASEBALL HISTORY

1869       The first rainout involving a professional baseball team occurs when heavy rain postpones the Red Stockings’ tune-up game against the Antioch Nine, a Yellow Springs, Ohio college team. Aaron B. Champion, Cincinnati’s owner, had been a student at the school in the 1850s.

1914       At Comiskey Park, three fourth-inning White Sox errors ruin the shutout, but Joseph Benz still no-hits the Naps (Indians), 6-1. It will take the right-hander known as ‘Blitzen,’ only one hour and 45 minutes to accomplish the deed.

1927       Although it will be another 42 years before the next one, an unassisted triple play is made for the second consecutive day in the major leagues when John Neun accomplishes the rare play in the ninth inning, saving the Tigers’ 1-0 victory. The first baseman catches Homer Summa’s line drive, tags Charlie Jamieson, the runner on first, and then beats Glenn Myatt to second base, making it the first time the last three outs of a game result from a solo triple killing.

1937       In Game 1 of a Memorial Day doubleheader, Carl Hubbell’s consecutive-game winning streak, compiled over two seasons, ends at 24 when the Dodgers, led by Babe Phelps’ 5-for-6 performance, defeat the Giants at the Polo Grounds, 10-3. ‘King Carl’ is honored between games when Babe Ruth presents the southpaw with the 1936 National League’s MVP Award.

1938       Lou Gehrig plays in his 2000th consecutive game, collecting an RBI single in the Yankees’ 12-5 victory over Boston in the Bronx ballpark. The 34 year-old first baseman will play in another 130 straight games before amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) shortens his Hall of Fame career.

1941       Chuck Aleno establishes the longest hitting streak to start a career when he extends his string to 17 games with a single and a triple in the Reds’ 5-2 victory over St. Louis at Crosley Field. The 24-year-old third baseman, who is hitting .485, begins the record run with four consecutive multi-hit games.

1944       At Briggs Stadium, Al Unser, whose son Del will play in the major leagues, hits a pinch-hit grand slam with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the Tigers a 6-2 walk-off victory over New York. The game-winning round-tripper will be the second baseman’s only home run this season.

1948       Tommy Lasorda, best known as the Dodgers’ Hall of Fame skipper, strikes out 25 batters and collects the game-winning hit when the Schenectady Blue Jays defeat the Amsterdam Rugmakers, 6-5, in 15 innings. The promising southpaw, who goes the distance in the CanAm minor-league contest played in McNearney Stadium, believes he probably threw more than 300 pitches during the game.

1949       Charley Lupica announces from a twenty-foot platform atop a flagpole that he will remain on the perch until the Indians are eliminated from the race or win another pennant. Although the local grocery store owner abandons his post in late September with the Tribe in fourth place, Cleveland owner Bill Veeck will reward the loyal fan with a souvenir 50-foot flagpole and a brand new car.

1961       Carroll Hardy, batting for Carl Yastrzemski, bunts for a single in the eighth inning of Boston’s 7-6 loss to the Yankees. The Red Sox outfielder will be the only player to pinch-hit for both Captain Carl and Ted Williams.

1964       In the nightcap of a doubleheader at Shea Stadium, Gaylord Perry pitches ten extra-inning frames in relief, getting the victory when the Giants beat the Mets in the longest game ever played to a decision in baseball history, 8-6. The future Hall of Famer reportedly threw his first spitball in a major league game during the 23-inning, seven-hour, and 23-minute marathon.

1964       The Mets execute an unusual 6-6-3 triple play in the 14th frame of a 23-inning 8-6 loss to the Giants when shortstop Roy McMillan snares Orlando Cepeda’s line drive, tags second base to double off Jesus Alou, and then throws to first, catching Willie Mays off base for the third out. The play is the team’s second triple-killing in the franchise’s brief history, pulling one off against the Dodgers in 1962, the team’s inaugural season.

1965       For the first time in history, an all-switch-hitting infield starts a big-league game. In the nightcap of a twin bill, the Dodgers, with Wes Parker at first base, Jim Lefebvre at second, Maury Wills at shortstop, and Jim Gilliam at third, lose to the visiting Reds, 6-1.

1966       In a 14-5 thrashing of the Twins at Metropolitan Stadium, Orioles first baseman Boog Powell scores from second on a wild pitch. The 6′ 4″, 240-pound infielder, not known for his speed, will be thrown out in each of four attempts to steal a base this season.

1966       Ron Santo establishes a National League record when he appears in his 364th consecutive game at third base. The Cubs infielder’s streak, which started on April 19, 1964, will end at 390 contests after Jack Fisher fractures his cheek with a pitch.

1968       Don Drysdale’s shutout streak stays intact when home plate umpire Harry Wendelstedt rules that Dick Dietz, hit by a pitch, did not attempt to get out of the way of the right-hander’s delivery with the bases loaded in the ninth inning. The Giants catcher finishes the at-bat by popping up, and the next two batters also make outs to give ‘Big D” his fifth straight shutout, tying a major league established by White Sox hurler Doc White in 1904.

1975       The Astros establish a team record by scoring twelve runs in the eighth inning of a 15-3 rout of Philadelphia. Cliff Johnson, appearing as a pinch-hitter during the frame, doubles and hits a home run, but his round-tripper does not count as a pinch-hit since he batted earlier in the inning.

1975       For the fifth time in his career, Cesar Tovar gets his team’s lone hit in a game when he breaks up Catfish Hunter’s bid for a no-hitter with a sixth-inning single in the Rangers’ 6-0 loss to the Yankees. The Texas DH also accomplished the feat against Barry Moore (1967 Senators), Dave McNally (1969 Orioles), Mike Cuellar (1969 Orioles), and Dick Bosman (1970 Senators).

1976       In his final start, after basically forcing the Twins to trade him, Bert Blyleven is serenaded by fans with a “Bye, Bye, Blyleven” chant. The unpopular right-hander will be reacquired by Minnesota in 1985, helping the team to win a World Series two seasons later before becoming a very popular broadcaster in the Twin Cities after he retires.

1976       After an error sets up a six-run rally for the Padres in the eighth inning, Ted Turner, the new Atlanta owner, invites the 2,994 fans watching the Braves lose to San Diego, 10-7, to come back the next night as his guests.

1979       Pat Underwood, in his major league debut, blanks the Blue Jays for 8.1 innings, earning the victory when the Tigers beat Toronto, 1-0, thanks to Jerry Morales’ eighth-inning solo home run. The 22-year-old rookie’s mound opponent is his older brother Tom, now winless in seven decisions, who goes the distance in the Exhibition Stadium contest.

1980       Ken Landreaux’s 31-game hitting streak ends when he goes hitless in four at-bats in Minnesota’s 11-1 loss to Baltimore at Metropolitan Stadium. The 33-year-old outfielder’s accomplishment, the longest span in the American League since Dom DiMaggio’s 34 for the Red Sox in 1949, establishes the record for the most consecutive games with a hit in Twins history.

1980       Gary Carter hits the second of his two career inside-the-park home runs, and, an inning later, the Expos catcher adds an out-of-the-park homer as well. The pair of two-run shots is to no avail when Montreal drops the Busch Stadium contest to the Redbirds, 8-6.

1991       The Mets and Padres swap middle infielders, with second baseman Tim Teufel going to San Diego in exchange for shortstop Garry Templeton, who will retire at the end of the season. The Friars’ new keystone sacker will hit .232 during his two-plus seasons with the club.

1997       Ila Borders becomes the first woman to play in a minor league game. The St. Paul Saints reliever gives up three runs to Sioux Falls without recording an out but redeems herself the next day by striking out the side.

1999       After consulting a TV monitor in the dugout, Frank Pulli becomes the first umpire to use instant replay to make a call, changing Cliff Floyd’s fifth-inning home run to a ground-rule double in the Marlins’ 5-2 loss to the Cardinals. After the Pro Player Stadium contest, the National League officials clearly state that using technology to reverse the call should not have occurred.

2000       At Bank One Ballpark, Cardinals’ slugger Mark McGwire hits a fly ball snagged by Diamondback’s center fielder Steve Finley (1), who relays the ball to home to get Placido Polanco out trying to score (2), with backstop Damian Miller continuing the play by firing the ball to third base where shortstop Tony Womack tags out Edgar Renteria advancing from second (3). The 8*-2*-6* play in the fifth inning of the team’s 6-2 victory over the Redbirds marks Arizona’s first triple play in franchise history.

2001       For the first time in over a year since Pedro Martinez scoffed at the ‘Curse,’ the Red Sox finally beat the Yankees in their eighth attempt. The right-hander was 7-1 when he said, “Wake up the damn Bambino and have me face him — Maybe I’ll drill him in the ass,” but after the comment, he makes seven winless starts, marking the first time he did not earn a win in seven starts since his first seven major league appearances as a rookie.

2001       After 25 years in the organization, manager Felipe Alou, 66, is fired by the Expos and replaced by Jeff Torborg, an old friend of Jeffrey Loria, the team’s owner. The former Montreal skipper is the winningest manager in franchise history, compiling a 691-717 record during his nine-year tenure.

2001       The Padres pound the Mets, 18-6, setting a new scoring record for Petco Park. The team’s total number of tallies surpass the previous mark set in the 17-2 victory over Atlanta in the home opener played in April.

2004       Sister Susanna Helms wins $10,000 from U.S. Bank and WLW when Barry Larkin and Sean Casey hit back-to-back home runs in Cincinnati’s 9-7 victory over the Marlins at Pro Player Stadium. The nun will donate the cash she won in the Reds’ radio promotion when the team hit back-to-back home runs in the fifth inning to the Sisters of Saint Francis in Oldenburg (IN) to help the order meet expenses.

2005       Buddy Bell, who formerly managed the Tigers (1996-98) and the Rockies (2000-2002), becomes the first Kansas City manager in 19 years with previous experience to be hired as the team’s skipper. With the worst record in baseball, the Royals will respond by sweeping a three-game series with the Yankees.

2006       After the Royals get off to a slow start, the team replaces general manager Allard Baird with former Braves assistant Dayton Moore. During his seven-year tenure, the club compiled a 381-576 record, including one winning season and three 100-loss seasons.

2006       The Astros announced that Roger Clemens is coming out of retirement to pitch for the team for the remainder of the season, after coming to terms with the right-hander on a deal worth $22,000,022 (#22 is his uniform number), prorated approximately to $12.25 million due to his midseason start. The 43-year-old right-hander will finish the season with a 7–6 record, a 2.30 ERA, and a 1.04 WHIP, averaging just under six innings per start. which includes never pitching into the eighth.

2007       In a crisp, one-hour, fifty-minute contest at Rogers Centre, the Blue Jays beat Chicago, 2-0. Roy Halladay becomes the quickest pitcher in franchise history to record 100 victories, needing just 200 starts to reach the milestone.

2008       In front of many visiting Red Sox fans at Camden Yards, Manny Ramirez becomes the 24th and 12th-youngest major leaguer to hit 500 career home runs. The historic ball, thrown in the seventh inning by Orioles right-hander Chad Bradford, is caught in the stands by Damon Woo, who presents the Boston slugger with the ball after the game.

2009       Carlos Pena becomes the first player to hit a ball into the “A” ring, the highest catwalk at Tropicana Field. The Rays’ first baseman’s 190-foot pop fly, considered in play, is caught off the rebound by Jose Mijares, but the Twins’ left-hander has to roll onto his stomach to hold onto the ball for the out.

2012       At Coors Field, Carlos Gonzalez sets a franchise record and becomes the 22nd major league to hit a home run in his fourth straight at-bat. The Rockies outfielder’s first frame three-homer off Houston pitcher Bud Norris comes on the heels of CarGo’s three round-trippers in the fifth, sixth, and eighth innings of yesterday’s contest.

2012       With their 6-2 victory, the Brewers beat the Dodgers for the fourth consecutive day, making the Brew Crew the first visiting team to sweep a four-game series at Chavez Ravine since the Rockies accomplished the feat in August of 1993. The victories also mark the first time the franchise has ever swept the LA team.

2015       Derek Fisher, the Astros’ 2014 first-round draft pick, dramatically makes his California League debut, hitting a solo home run and two grand slams in his first three at-bats for the Lancaster Jethawks, Houston’s Class-A Advanced affiliate. The former Virginia Calavier outfielder establishes a new league mark when he clears the bases in the seventh inning with a bases-loaded double to raise his RBI total to 12 in the team’s 16-3 victory.
