HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Astros have plugged in several different players at center field this season hoping one of them would get going at the plate and show they can contribute as the team looks toward another deep playoff run.
TORONTO (AP) — Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout homered, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-3 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
Ohtani had three hits and scored twice one day after he pitched seven crisp innings in a 2-0 victory.
SEATTLE (AP) — Mariners shortstop J.P. Crawford had his suspension stemming from last weekend's brawl with the Los Angeles Angels reduced from five to four games, and he was set to serve the ban Thursday.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Angels reliever Archie Bradley broke a bone in his elbow while climbing over the dugout railing during Los Angeles’ massive brawl with the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.
Bradley will be out for at least one month, Angels athletic trainer Mike Frostad said Tuesday.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels found out they'll pay a hefty price in suspensions for Sunday's big brawl with Seattle. In the short term, though, it seems that's galvanized a struggling ballclub.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Angels interim manager Phil Nevin was suspended 10 games and Seattle Mariners outfielder Jesse Winker received a seven-game ban from Major League Baseball for their roles in a benches-clearing brawl during the second inning of Sunday's game.
A look at what's happening around the majors today:
NEW YORK (AP) — Aaron Judge drove a three-run homer in the 10th inning for his second walk-off hit against the Astros in four days, and the New York Yankees recovered after nearly being no-hit for the second consecutive game to beat Houston 6-3 on Sunday for a four-game split between the AL’s top teams.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — When the Angels made a late decision Sunday to go with little-used reliever Andrew Wantz as their opener on the mound, the Mariners suspected they might be about to get payback for a fastball that got awfully close to Mike Trout's head the previous night.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Seattle Mariners and the Los Angeles Angels engaged in a lengthy full-team brawl in the second inning Sunday after tensions over two days of inside pitches boiled over.
Both managers and six players were ejected after the brouhaha, which stopped and started twice before Angels closer Raisel Iglesias came back out to the empty field to throw a tub of sunflower seeds and another bucket of gum onto the infield.
