Healthy and playing regularly for the first time in three years , Coco Crisp is finally producing the way he did earlier in his career with the Athletics. Not even a collision with teammate Chris Coghlan was enough to slow down Oakland's 36-year-old veteran outfielder. Crisp homered leading off the game, Khris Davis hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the sixth inning and the A's beat the Minneso

Mets RHP Matt Harvey (3-7, 6.08 ERA) tries again to get back on track when he faces the White Sox in a Memorial Day matinee at Citi Field. This is a guy who started an All-Star Game a couple of years ago and was one of the best in the game, and I think we need to push him a little bit farther.''

The last-place Minnesota Twins hope to keep improving their own dismal numbers when they visit the Oakland Athletics on Monday seeking their longest winning streak of the season. Minnesota (15-34) has won four straight for the second time, capping the run with a weekend sweep at Seattle. The Twins seek their first five-game run since winning six in a row from Aug. 20-26, and they can do so by sn

It hasn't been an enjoyable holiday weekend for the Seattle Mariners, and if it ends on a similar note, they're going to be looking at their longest losing streak since the first eight games of the season. Home struggles are complicating their otherwise promising year in the AL West, which they'll try to begin correcting Monday in the first of four games against the San Diego Padres. The Mariner

Walker allows 3 homers, Mariners swept by Twins (The Associated Press)
via Yahoo Sports - Twins May 29, 2016 at 08:19 PM

Felix Hernandez and Wade Miley both turned in lackluster outings for the Mariners this weekend, and Seattle was hopeful Taijuan Walker could provide a lift against the lowly Minnesota Twins. Walker allowed three homers and five runs over 4 1/3 innings and the Mariners lost to the Twins 5-4 on Sunday to cap a three-game sweep against the American League's worst team. Seattle starters allowed 16 e

Mike Pelfrey can point to a lot of good things that happened Sunday. Pelfrey (0-5) remained winless despite not allowing an earned run in the Detroit Tigers 4-2 setback to the Oakland Athletics in the series finale. ''I didn't start the sixth too well with the walk, but the guys turned the double play on Vogt for me,'' Pelfrey said.

Mariners baserunning gaffes lead to absurd game-ending double play (Big League Stew)

If you're a fan of the Minnesota Twins, then you're conditioned to expect the worst this season. That's how far the expectations have fallen with the team off to a highly disappointing 13-34 start entering play on Saturday. We're sure that overwhelming sense of dread crept into their minds on Saturday night too when the Seattle Mariners threatened to rally in the ninth inning at Safeco Field. Ho

Considering all the troubles of the first two months, the Minnesota Twins could laugh and crack some smiles after the wacky and unlikely double play to close out their third straight win. ''A lot of it blurs together after about four decades,'' Molitor said. ''But to record a double play when there's not a force in order like that, in a situation where the tying run is 90 feet away, it's just a

Highlights of Saturday's Major League Baseball games: Rangers 5, Pirates 2 Yu Darvish allowed one run over five innings in his first big-league start since 2014 as Texas topped Pittsburgh 5-2. Darvish, who was on a 90-pitch limit, struck out seven and threw 81 pitches.

Neither Ricky Nolasco nor Taijuan Walker has picked up a victory in May, though the latter seems to be far closer to earning one. Nolasco hopes to shake out of his month-long slump to lift the last-place Minnesota Twins to a series sweep of Walker's first-place Seattle Mariners on Sunday at Safeco Field. Minnesota (14-34) took the first two games of this series, 7-2 on Friday and 6-5 on Saturday

via Yahoo Sports - Twins May 28, 2016 at 07:01 PM

Following a brief major league debut, the Los Angeles Dodgers have optioned 19-year-old pitching prospect Julio Urias back to Triple-A Oklahoma City. In a corresponding move Saturday, the team selected the contract of right-hander Casey Fien from its top farm club. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says the team wanted another arm in the bullpen after Urias lasted only 2 2/3 innings Friday night.

Hernandez was rocked for five runs in the third inning and the Mariners couldn't recover against Minnesota rookie Pat Dean, who pitched seven effective innings for his first career victory in a 7-2 victory Friday night. ''That was a clunker,'' Mariners manager Scott Servais said.
