Deserving better, Corbin gets another no-decision

PHOENIX -- Patrick Corbin deserved better Monday, but the Diamondbacks did little to help him in a 3-2 loss to the Marlins. Corbins third attempt at his 10th victory was compromised by Miamis Mike Stanton, who had two home runs, and a D-backs offense that fell into a funk in a three-game sweep in San Diego over the weekend and seems to have stayed there. Corbin is attempting to...

Marlins-Diamondbacks Preview

After getting the best of baseball's top team over the weekend, the major league-worst Miami Marlins visit the desert with momentum on their side.

Josh kicks up "failure" to epic proportions; Angels fall to the Mariners, 3-2

  Josh Hamilton grounded into three double plays and struck out the other two times he came to the plate. Mike Trout did everything he could to will his team's offense into something resembling legitimacy. Instead, he was anchored at first, with Scioscia failing to employ his favorite (until this year) offensive tactic of activating his speedy base runners.   The...

Sunday’s win sums up the Yankees season

For eight innings on Sunday, all was going right for the Yankees. CC was dominating, the offense was finally producing more runs than a taco bell, and overall, everything just seemed to be going their way. But with just three outs left, all hell broke loose.
