Mariners unleash fireworks in 13-2 victory over Royals

Just a few hours after he admitted that his team wasn’t an “offensive juggernaut” — a premise few would argue with him about — Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon watched his team look like one on Tuesday night. The Mariners scored a combined 10 runs in the fifth and sixth innings and rolled to an easy 13-2 win over the Angels. The victory snapped a three-game losing streak...

Now that we are well past the point of worrying about jinxing things (if the Angels now lose their next 19 games, I apologize), it is time we start talking about what the Angels playoff roster is going to look like. The Halos have had a remarkably stable lineup and pitching staff the last few months, especially by Scioscia standards, but there are some things they need to sort out...

Due for a clunker, Tribe sleepwalks through makeup tilt

I woke up yesterday and had completely forgotten that the Indians had a makeup day game at Progressive Field. Judging by the attendance, so did the rest of the city. I hate the attendance conversation and it is completely irrelevant to Monday afternoon. I follow this team as closely as anyone and even I didn’t have the game on my radar. Nevertheless, The Los Angeles Angels came...

Boxscore Breakdown #139: Back on track – Angels 5, Twins 4

Well, it wasn’t pretty and more difficult than it really needed to be, but the Angels are back in the win column and back on track for their smooth ride to the AL West crown. The offense showed some life, too. The poor Santiago start was less than ideal, but after getting swept by the Astros, this is a real step forward.

Boxscore Breakdown #136: OakLOLand – Angels 8, Athletics 1

Well, that couldn’t have gone better. Not only did the Angels beat the pants off the A’s in the finale, but they sent them into full-on self-destruct mode afterwards. After losing all four games and scoring a combined three runs in the series, Oakland is in utter disarray. Their hitters were awful in the series. They made several fielding blunders. Scott Kazmir continues to implode...

Mookie Betts’ Outfield Defense A Work In Progress For Boston Red Sox

BOSTON — Mookie Betts still is navigating through unfamiliar territory. Some turbulence should be expected. Betts, drafted as a second baseman in 2011, has been learning the outfield for roughly three months. He has adapted well to the position change, largely because of his natural talent, but there are going to be growing pains. The Red Sox were offered a reminder during Tuesday’s...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Aug 18

Welcome back to another week of our Daily DraftKings Picks! We only have about six weeks of baseball left, so it’s time to make our picks count. I didn’t get a chance to do that last Friday as I only entered one $2 contest on the day (I knew I wouldn’t be able to update my lineups before gametime) which ended up being a smart decision. Devin Mesoraco didn’t get the start...

How the Angels lost (8/5): Error by Freese scores winning run for Dodgers

Dodgers 5, Angels 4: Clayton Kershaw is apparently human

It wasn’t a classic Clayton Kershaw game, and Andre Ethier came through — even if it wasn’t in his “Captain Clutch” fashion — but the Dodgers still pulled out a 5-4 win against the Angels on Tuesday night. Ethier came in the ninth inning with runners on the corner and one out. He hit a weak chopper to David Freese at third base. Freese made a great attempt by bare-handing...
