Top Play: Craig Gentry makes two amazing catches

Texas Rangers outfielder Craig Gentry made two amazing catches on Sunday, including a home run saving catch to rob Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer. The first excellent grab occurred in the fifth inning when Gentry and second baseman Ian Kinsler collided in short center field. Kinsler collided with Gentry, but the fourth year player from the University of Arkansas held onto the...

Will Red Sox bite bullet on Mauer?

Here's the first test for the Boston Red Sox, the first chance for general manager Ben Cherington to demonstrate what his newfound commitment to "discipline" in player acquisitions truly means. The Minnesota Twins placed catcher Joe Mauer on trade waivers Monday, according to a major-league source. The Red Sox not only have long-standing interest in Mauer, but also...

Beltre named AL player of the week

Adrian Beltre, who had a three homer game as well as hit for the cycle last week, was named American League player of the week. Beltre hit .433 for the week with five home runs and nine RBIs. He led the major leagues in slugging, OPS, total bases, extra-base hits, home runs and hits. Beltre did all that despite going hitless Saturday and Sunday against Minnesota. He made up for...

Sweaty Rangers fan got a little emotional in the 9th inning (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. I’m not sure there was anyone at the Ballpark in Arlington on Monday night who wanted a win more than this guy. This Rangers fan was hooting and hollering to the point where both the people next to them were full of embarrassment during the 9th inning of Texas’ 6-5 win over the Rays. I was trying to figure out if this guy was so emotional...

De Vries: ''It will be a good flight back''

They say everything is bigger in Texas, but Twins right-hander Cole De Vries' ERA is smaller when he pitches in Arlington. De Vries made his second start of the year in Texas on Sunday and held the powerful Rangers offense -- which scored 27 total runs in the first three games of the series -- to just two runs in five innings. De Vries' performance helped the Twins cap their...

Report: Minnesota gets 2014 MLB ASG

A person with knowledge of the decision says the 2014 All-Star Game will be played at Target Field in Minneapolis. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the news has not yet been announced by the Twins or Major League Baseball. The news was first reported by the Star Tribune. The Twins scheduled a news conference for Wednesday afternoon...

One bad pitch keeps Hendriks from earning his first win

Before the Twins played host to the Seattle Mariners on Monday at Target Field, Minnesota general manager Terry Ryan spoke of several players who need to use the last 35 games of 2012 to "give us some hope that they're going to be part of the 2013 club." Among them is Liam Hendriks, who entered Monday's game with an 0-6 record and a 7.06 ERA. Though the Twins...

Twins' Hendriks battles King Felix

MINNEAPOLIS Felix Hernandez's Seattle Mariners teammates are running out of superlatives to call their ace. King Felix will continue to do just fine. Two starts after tossing a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays, Hernandez picked up another complete game shutout Monday against Minnesota. He wasn't quite perfect, but the 26-year-old right-hander was certainly impressive...

Feldman fails to complete Twins sweep

I was pleasantly surprised on Saturday when Ryan Dempster broke his good game-bad game pattern yesterday with a decent outing that ended up being a win.  All we needed was another decent start from Scott Feldman for a four-game sweep of the Twins. So close and yet so far. Six runs on ten hits in 5.2 innings is not a decent start, Feldman.  Not at all.   Sure, only five of those...

Price chased early as Rangers edge Rays

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Adrian Beltre was 3 for 3 with a home run and four RBIs, including the go-ahead run in the bottom of the fifth inning, to lead the Texas Rangers to a 6-5 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night. Elvis Andrus scored on Beltre's single to give the AL West leaders a series-opening win. Nelson Cruz also homered and Mike Olt added an RBI for Texas...
