SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Colorado Rockies will be without the reliever who boasted he could strike out Babe Ruth, but they believe the bridge between their solid starting rotation and premier closer Wade Davis remains sturdy.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Padres manager Andy Green told Franmil Reyes that he'd have the winning hit Thursday night.
Reyes sure did, and in a big way. The rookie hit his first career walkoff homer with two outs in the 13th inning to give the Padres a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies.
Reyes connected to left-center on a 1-1 pitch from Bryan Shaw (4-6) for his 12th homer. It was only the sixth hit for San Diego. The Rockies had only three hits against seven Padres pitchers.
DENVER (AP) — The Colorado Rockies added another reliever by acquiring right-hander Seunghwan Oh from Toronto for minor league prospects.
Oh was 4-3 with a 2.68 ERA in 48 appearances for the Blue Jays this season. The 36-year-old South Korean signed a $2 million, one-year contract in the offseason after two seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals.
It's unclear where Oh will fit into Colorado's bullpen. The Rockies have Wade Davis as their closer and Adam Ottavino as an eighth-inning specialist.
DENVER (AP) — J.T. Realmuto was focused purely on putting the ball in play with the bases loaded and two strikes on him.
He ended up putting it out of play.
Realmuto hit a grand slam during a five-run seventh inning and the Miami Marlins beat the Colorado Rockies 6-2 Saturday.
DENVER (AP) — Paul Goldschmidt keeps providing souvenirs at Coors Field. What killed the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night wasn't his second straight two-homer game but a soft dribbler back to the mound by pinch-hitter Ketel Marte that keyed Arizona's 12-7 comeback win.
The possible double play became a double error when Bryan Shaw booted the ball, and then whipped it into right field.
DENVER (AP) — Joc Pederson has been in a long-ball dry spell.
There's nothing like Coors Field — with the baseball carrying — to remedy that.
Pederson hit a pair of solo homers, Matt Kemp went deep during an eight-run seventh inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers routed the Colorado Rockies 12-4 on Saturday night.
NEW YORK (AP) — The revolving door of Cleveland's bullpen took a turn for the fourth straight day when the Indians acquired reliever Oliver Drake from the Milwaukee Brewers for $110,000.
Andrew Miller has not pitched since April 25 because of a strained left hamstring and will not come off the disabled list Sunday, the first day he is eligible.
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Free agent reliever Matt Belisle has agreed to a minor league contract with the Cleveland Indians and would get a $1.5 million, one-year deal if added to the 40-man big league roster.
The 37-year-old right-hander would be able to earn an additional $1.75 million in performance bonuses based on games as part of the agreement announced Sunday: $100,000 for 20, $150,000 for 25 and each additional five through 55, and $200,000 apiece for 60, 65 and 70.
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — The Cleveland Indians have agreed to a minor league contract with free agent reliever Carlos Torres, who could fill a bullpen opening.
Torres pitched in 67 games last season for the Milwaukee Brewers. The right-hander will join the Indians in training camp once he passes a physical. The 35-year-old went 4-1 with a 4.21 ERA last season, his second with Milwaukee following three with the New York Mets.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Closer Cody Allen and the Cleveland Indians have reached agreement on a $10,575,000, one-year contract.
The 29-year-old righty had been eligible for salary arbitration before Wednesday's deal. He made $7.35 million last season.
Allen was 3-7 with 30 saves and a 2.94 ERA for the AL Central champions. Cleveland led the AL with 102 wins before losing to the Yankees in the division series.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Trevor Bauer pitched well, but he credits his defense for this victory.
Bauer threw 6 1/3 innings as the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals 5-0 on Saturday night.
Bauer (12-8) won his fifth straight decision - the longest winning streak of his career that started after a July 17 loss. He gave up seven hits, walked two and struck out four.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Trevor Bauer pitched 6 1/3 innings as the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals 5-0 on Saturday night.
Bauer (12-8) won his fifth straight decision — the longest winning streak of his career that started after a July 17 loss. He gave up seven hits, walked two and struck out four.
Relievers Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen did not allow a hit over the final 2 2/3 innings to complete the shutout.
CHICAGO (AP) — After the Chicago White Sox continued their tear-down on Sunday, two players they hope will be part of the eventual rebuild led them to a much-needed win.
Matt Davidson hit his first career walk-off home run, Carlos Rodon had his longest start of the season and the White Sox beat Cleveland 3-1 to end the Indians' nine-game winning streak.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Their worst season in years has afforded the San Francisco Giants few light-hearted moments.
A second straight dramatic win against a pennant contender gave them one such moment, and it happened to coincide with a Game of Thrones promotion they were plugging anyway.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Buster Posey pinch hit a two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the eighth inning as the San Francisco Giants defeated the Cleveland Indians 5-4 on Wednesday.
Posey, on a scheduled rest day, doubled off the wall on a 3-2 slider on the seventh offering from Indians reliever Bryan Shaw (2-4).
Indians first baseman Carlos Santana booted an infield grounder that figured prominently in the three-run rally.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Carlos Carrasco got the Cleveland Indians to the sixth inning, and Andrew Miller and company took over from there.
Miller, Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen combined for 3 2/3 innings of one-hit relief, helping the Indians top the Chicago White Sox 4-2 on Sunday.
"We have an unbelievable bullpen," Carrasco said. "It was amazing."
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Indians got it right with four pitchers on Friday.
Cleveland reached agreement on 2017 contracts with closer Cody Allen, starter Danny Salazar and relievers Bryan Shaw and Zach McAllister, four right-handers who were eligible for arbitration and are key members on one of baseball's deepest pitching staffs.
OXON HILL, Md. (AP) — Ned Yost enjoyed watching the Cleveland Indians' lights-out bullpen go to work in the playoffs because it was so familiar.
"It was amazing to see — to watch games and kind of understand the feeling that other teams had against us," the Kansas City Royals manager said.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians sat through a 17-minute rain delay before resuming Game 7 of the World Series in the 10th inning with the score tied at 6 early Thursday.
The Indians rallied for three runs with two outs in the eighth, with Rajai Davis hitting a tying home run off All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman.
The umpires called for the tarp before the 10th began. Play started up again at 12:11 a.m., but more rain was in the forecast.
CHICAGO (AP) — The Latest on Game 3 of the World Series at Wrigley Field on Friday night (all times Central):
Cody Allen struck out Javier Baez with two runners in scoring position for the final out, and the Cleveland Indians held on to beat the Chicago Cubs 1-0 for a 2-1 lead in the World Series.
It was the first Series game at Wrigley Field in Chicago since 1945.
Cleveland pitched its fifth shutout of this postseason.
TORONTO (AP) — Before the Cleveland Indians could even consider giving the ball to Andrew Miller, their bullpen faced a daunting task in the very first inning.
After Trevor Bauer's bloody exit , these remarkable relievers had to stitch together almost an entire game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
