      September 12, 2017

      CLEVELAND (AP) The Cleveland Indians share a record with a team celebrated by Hollywood.

      ''Moneyball'' has its sequel.

      Following a familiar script of scoring first, playing strong defense and riding dominant pitching, the Indians extended their winning streak to 20 games and matched the AL mark held by the 2002 Oakland Athletics, beating the Detroit Tigers 2-0 on Tuesday night.

      Cleveland's streak, which began on Aug. 24 in Boston, is tied for the majors' second-longest in 82 years - and the Indians show no signs of stopping.

      Corey Kluber (16-4) strengthened his Cy Young Award case with a five-hitter as Cleveland joined the 2002 A's, 1935 Chicago Cubs (21) and 1916 New York Giants (26) as the only teams since 1900 to win at least 20 in a row.

      Francisco Lindor homered leading off the first inning against Matthew Boyd (5-10), and Kluber sealed win No. 20 - and Cleveland's seventh shutout during the streak - by getting Miguel Cabrera on an easy grounder to third.

      DODGERS 5, GIANTS 3


      SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Clayton Kershaw pitched NL-leading Los Angeles to its first win in nearly two weeks, helping the Dodgers snap the club's worst skid since moving West at 11 games.

      Kershaw (17-3) took a share of the major league wins lead with Milwaukee's Zach Davies.

      Kenley Jansen recorded the final four outs for his 37th save but surrendered three straight singles with one out in the ninth to face a bases-loaded jam. He struck out Buster Posey and Nick Hundley to end it. Catcher Yasmani Grandal pumped his right fist and Jansen pounded his chest as the Dodgers hustled out of their dugout.

      Justin Turner hit a key RBI double in the eighth and Chase Utley homered leading off the fourth, splashing into the water of McCovey Cove beyond the right-field wall for the first time in his career - the 41st ever by an opposing hitter.

      Johnny Cueto (7-8) struck out eight over 3 2/3 innings for the Giants, allowing four runs and six hits with four walks in his third start since coming off the disabled list.

      BREWERS 5, PIRATES 2


      MILWAUKEE (AP) - Eric Thames hit his 29th home run, Domingo Santana went 3 for 4 with two RBIs and Milwaukee beat Pittsburgh.

      The Brewers pulled within two games of the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs who were playing the New York Mets.

      Gerrit Cole (11-10) took his first loss in 10 road starts since the Atlanta Braves beat him 5-2 on May 22. He slipped to 8-1 away from PNC Park over that stretch after allowing five runs and seven hits in six innings. He tied his season-high with 10 strikeouts in his fifth start against Milwaukee this season.

      Manager Craig Counsell turned to the bullpen to protect the 5-2 lead. Jeremy Jeffress, Oliver Drake, Jared Hughes, Anthony Swarzak and Josh Hader each turned in a scoreless inning. Jeffress (3-0) was the pitcher of record. Corey Knebel pitched the ninth for his 35th save in 40 chances.

      RED SOX 11, ATHLETICS 1

      BOSTON (AP) - Mookie Betts hit two home runs and a two-run triple, and Boston rolled past Oakland.

      The Red Sox, winners of five of their last six, pushed their American League East lead back to four games over the Yankees following New York's loss to 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay.

      Betts went 3 for 5 with six RBIs. He's driven in three runs or more in a team-high 11 games.

      The loss snaps a five-game win streak for the A's. They managed just one run and one hit off Eduardo Rodriguez (5-5), who struck out nine over six innings.

      Sean Manaea (10-10) was pulled after giving up seven earned runs on 11 hits in 3 2/3 innings.

      BRAVES 8, NATIONALS 0


      WASHINGTON (AP) - Freddie Freeman hit a three-run home run off Gio Gonzalez and Julio Teheran threw seven shutout innings as Atlanta cruised past Washington.

      Gonzalez (14-7) allowed five earned runs and seven hits in five innings and struck out eight. The left-hander did guarantee his $12 million option for next season with his first out of the game as he reached 180 innings this season.

      The Nationals, who clinched the division Sunday when the Braves came back to beat the Miami in extra innings, lost for just the second time in eight games. This loss kept them from closing the gap on the Los Angeles Dodgers for the best record in baseball and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

      Teheran (11-11) allowed seven hits, struck out five and walked two.

      BLUE JAYS 3, ORIOLES 2

      TORONTO (AP) - Richard Urena singled home the winning run in the ninth inning and Toronto handed slumping Baltimore its sixth straight loss.

      Facing Orioles closer Zach Britton (2-1), who had recorded the final out of the eighth, Kevin Pillar drew a leadoff walk in the ninth and went to third on Teoscar Hernandez's single. One out later, Pillar scored when Luke Maile singled off the glove of third baseman Manny Machado.

      Urena followed with a single to center. Darwin Barney raced around from second and slid home safely ahead of the throw from Adam Jones.

      Blue Jays left-hander Tim Mayza (1-0) got one out for his first career win.

      Tim Beckham homered for the Orioles.

      RAYS 2, YANKEES 1

      NEW YORK (AP) - Adeiny Hechavarria hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning off Sonny Gray and Tampa Bay, playing as the home team in a series relocated to Citi Field because of Hurricane Irma, beat the Yankees.

      Tampa Bay has split the first two games of the set held at the home of the New York Mets.

      The Rays will fly back to Florida immediately after Wednesday afternoon's game for firsthand looks at the storm damage. No word yet from MLB if Boston and Tampa Bay will play at Tropicana Field on Friday night as scheduled - the Rays expect to host the three-game set, but it could be reconfigured to give them an extra day off to handle personal matters.

      Tommy Hunter (3-5) pitched one inning to give Tampa Bay, on the fringe of the AL wild-card race, its second win in six games. Alex Colome closed for his 44th save in 49 chances.

      Gray (9-10) again pitched well but wound up with a loss. The Yankees, who hold the top AL wild-card spot, have dropped just three of their last 10.

      ROYALS 4, WHITE SOX 3

      KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Brandon Moss hit a grand slam in the first inning for his third consecutive game with a homer, powering Kansas City past Chicago.

      Scott Alexander worked out of a ninth-inning jam for his fourth save in six chances. He yielded a double to Adam Engel and a single to Yolmer Sanchez to lead off the ninth. He struck out Yoan Moncada, retired Jose Abreu on a pop to Whit Merrifield and got pinch hitter Matt Davidson on a grounder to end the game.

      White Sox rookie Dylan Covey (0-5) walked the bases loaded before Moss drove a full-count fastball to right-center. It was Moss's fourth career grand slam and his first since July 24, 2014. He has nine RBIs in his past three games.

      Sam Gaviglio (4-5) picked up his first Royals victory in his second start after being picked up on waivers Sept. 1 from Seattle.

      ASTROS 1, ANGELS 0


      ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Justin Verlander pitched eight innings of one-hit ball in a stellar second start for Houston, and the Astros snapped their four-game skid.

      Yuli Gurriel's second-inning single drove in the only run for the Astros (87-57), who lowered their magic number for clinching the AL West title to five by blanking the second-place Angels (73-71).

      Verlander (12-8) struck out nine and walked one in another overpowering performance for his new team. The star right-hander held the Angels without a hit after Brandon Phillips' leadoff double in the first, allowing only two more baserunners.

      Verlander pitched six innings of one-run ball in Seattle during his Astros debut last week, and he looks exactly like the stopper Houston wanted for the pennant race.

      PHILLIES 9, MARLINS 8, 15 INNINGS

      PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Nick Williams hit a walk-off, two-out double in the bottom of the 15th inning, scoring Aaron Altherr as Philadelphia rallied for the win.

      Innings-wise, it was the longest game of the season for the Phillies and second-longest for the Marlins.

      Williams had three hits and reached base five times in the marathon game. He has 47 RBIs since being called up the week before the All-Star break.

      The Phillies celebrated with Williams, but thought they actually had a walk-off win in the bottom of the ninth on an RBI single by pinch-hitter Hyun-Soo Kim, but while the Phillies mobbed Kim at first base, ripping off his jersey and dousing him with water, Gatorade and sunflower seeds, the Marlins challenged the play at the plate.

      After a lengthy review, it appeared catcher J.T. Realmuto's glove nicked the finger of a sliding Cesar Hernandez an instant before it touched the plate and the call on the field was overturned, and after the grounds crew had to clean up the mess around first base, Odubel Herrera struck out, sending the game to extra innings.

      TWINS 16, PADRES 0

      MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jason Castro homered twice and Brian Dozier was a double from the cycle as Minnesota routed San Diego.

      The Twins hit a season-high seven home runs, setting a Target Field record for most homers in a game, to back another strong start from Kyle Gibson. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Twins set a major league record by homering in each of the first seven innings with Jorge Polanco, Eddie Rosario, Eduardo Escobar and Kennys Vargas adding to the total.

      Gibson (10-10) pitched six innings with four hits and six strikeouts. He has allowed two runs or fewer in five straight starts for Minnesota, which maintained its hold on the second wild card spot in the American League.

      MARINERS 10, RANGERS 3

      ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Ben Gamel and Kyle Seager both hit three-run homers to lead Seattle past Texas in a matchup of wild card hopefuls.

      Texas (72-72) and Seattle (72-73) have split the first two games of their four-game series. The Rangers dropped three games behind Minnesota for the American League's second wild card, while the Mariners remained 3 1/2 back after the Twins also won.

      Seager's homer in the third made it 7-1 and chased Miguel Gonzalez (7-11), who made his second start overall and first at home for the Rangers since they acquired him in an Aug. 31 trade with the Chicago White Sox. Gonzalez allowed seven runs and seven hits while recording only seven outs.

      Marco Gonzales (1-1), traded from St. Louis to Seattle on July 21, got his first victory in six starts for the Mariners. The lefty struck out six while allowing three runs over five innings, his longest outing this season.

      CARDINALS 13, REDS 4


      ST. LOUIS (AP) - Paul DeJong homered, Yadier Molina drove in three runs and streaking St. Louis outslugged Cincinnati.

      The Cardinals have won four straight and six of their last seven to stay two games behind the first-place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central.

      Molina's two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the first gave the Cardinals a 2-1 lead. He drove in his 10th run over his past three games with a single in the sixth. Molina leads the team with 75 RBIs.

      Matt Carpenter walked a career-best four times, doubled in a run and scored twice.

      Lance Lynn (11-7) allowed four runs, three earned, on six hits in five innings.

      Robert Stephenson (4-5) was pulled after three innings, the shortest career outing for the Reds rookie. He allowed six runs, four earned, and all three of his walks scored.

      CUBS 8, METS 3

      CHICAGO (AP) - Kris Bryant hit a three-run homer, Jose Quintana pitched seven effective innings and Chicago got a sorely needed victory.

      Quintana (10-11) also helped himself at the plate with a pair of sacrifices, including a perfectly placed safety squeeze that drove in Kyle Schwarber in the fourth. Quintana got another bunt down in the sixth, sending Javier Baez to third ahead of Ben Zobrist's RBI single.

      Chicago had lost three in a row and six of eight, making for a crowded race at the top of the NL Central. St. Louis and Milwaukee also won Tuesday night, so the Cubs remained two games ahead of the Cardinals and 2 1/2 games better than the third-place Brewers.

      ROCKIES 4, DIAMONDBACKS 2

      PHOENIX (AP) - Carlos Gonzalez, heating up for the stretch run after a subpar season at the plate, homered twice and Colorado won its sixth in a row.

      Gonzalez drove in all four Colorado runs in his first multihomer game since Aug. 16 last year and is batting .451 (14 for 31) in September.

      Jon Gray (8-4) gave up two runs and scattered seven hits over seven solid innings, striking out 10 with no walks and a hit batter for the Rockies, who won their eighth straight road game to pull within three games of Arizona for the first NL wild card.

      Gray matched the season high for strikeouts he set in a win at Arizona on June 30. Chris Rusin got two outs for his second save.

      • MLB notebook: 2018 MLB season has early opening
        September 12, 2017


        Major League Baseball released its 2018 regular-season schedule on Tuesday with a wrinkle that hasn't been seen in 50 years.

        All 30 teams will begin their respective season on March 29, marking the first time in a half-century that every club opens play on the same day. The 1968 campaign began with all 20 teams in action.

        In addition, March 29 represents the earliest start to a major league season, excluding special international events. It also marks only the 12th time in league history -- and first since 2011 -- that the season will begin on a Thursday.

        Opening Day features eight divisional matchups among the 15 games, in addition to an interleague contest between the Detroit Tigers and host Pittsburgh Pirates. The New York Yankees open at the American League East-rival Toronto Blue Jays for the first time since 2003 while the San Francisco Giants visit the Los Angeles Dodgers to highlight the divisional contests.

        The Oakland Athletics will play a game against the Chicago White Sox on April 17 in which admission will be free. The date is the 50th anniversary of the club's first game in Oakland.

        The final day of the 2018 regular season features 12 divisional games on Sept. 30, including the Yankees visiting the rival Boston Red Sox.

        --The St. Louis Cardinals recalled outfielder Magneuris Sierra from Triple-A Memphis, the team announced.

        Infielder Breyvic Valera was optioned to the Redbirds to make room for Sierra, who has played at the Single-A, Double-A, Triple-A and major league levels this season.

        Sierra has batted a combined .270 in 101 games this season with Class A Palm Beach and Double-A Springfield. The 21-year-old will be making his fourth recall this season to St. Louis, with which he is 19-for-52 in 13 games.

        Valera went 1-for-5 in three games with the Cardinals since making his major league debut on Sept. 5. He hit a team-best .314 in 117 games with Memphis this season.

        --The Texas Rangers will give their fans a look at the biggest piece acquired in the Yu Darvish trade with the promotion of outfielder Willie Calhoun.

        The Rangers purchased Calhoun's contract from Triple-A Round Rock and activated 3B Adrian Beltre from the 10-day disabled list. To make room for Calhoun on the 40-man roster, the club also released right-hander Tyson Ross.

        Calhoun, 22, is starting on Tuesday when the Rangers host the Seattle Mariners. Calhoun hit .300 and posted a .927 OPS with 31 home runs and 93 RBIs at Triple-A this season while playing for Oklahoma City (Dodgers) and Round Rock. He was part of the trade that sent Darvish to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

        --The Baltimore Orioles activated outfielder Craig Gentry from the 10-day disabled list.

        Gentry had been out since suffering a fractured finger on Sep. 1 and will join an Orioles team 3 1/2 games out of the second American League wild card spot heading into Tuesday night's games.

        Gentry, 33, is batting .257 with 17 runs scored and five stolen bases in 74 games for Baltimore and serves as a solid defensive replacement in the outfield.

        --The Cleveland Indians announced Tuesday that rookie center fielder Bradley Zimmer underwent surgery on the fractured fourth metacarpal of his left hand at the New York Hand and Wrist Center of Lenox Hill in New York.

        The surgery was performed by Dr. Thomas Graham, who also examined Zimmer on Monday. The procedure required a plate and nine screws to be inserted in order to heal the fracture.

        The Indians estimated that Zimmer will be able to resume baseball activities in six to eight weeks.

        Zimmer was injured in the seventh inning of Sunday's 3-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles on a head-first slide into first base. He hit a ground ball to Chris Davis and the Baltimore first baseman stepped on Zimmer's hand while applying the tag.

        --San Diego Padres reliever Carter Capps will miss the remainder of the season after doctors discovered a blood clot when Capps went to the hospital late Monday night.

        Before Tuesday's game against the Minnesota Twins, San Diego manager Andy Green said Capps saw doctors at a Minneapolis hospital after not feeling well Monday. After initially thinking it might be kidney stones, Capps found out it was a blood clot.

        "A plan of action has not yet been determined for treatment," Green said.

        Green also added that Capps will remain in Minnesota until he is cleared to fly.

        • LEADING OFF: Indians go for 21st straight; Rays head home
          September 13, 2017

          A look at what's happening all around the majors Wednesday:

          BLACKJACK

          The amazing Indians go for their 21st straight victory when right-hander Mike Clevinger, who hasn't allowed a run in his past three outings, faces the Detroit Tigers in a 12:10 p.m. start. Cleveland can tie the 1935 Chicago Cubs for the second-longest winning streak in major league history. The record is 26 in a row by the 1916 New York Giants. Closing in on their second consecutive AL Central crown, the Indians ran their incredible string to 20 games Tuesday night, beating Detroit 2-0 behind Corey Kluber (16-4) to match the American League mark held by the 2002 Oakland Athletics. Cleveland's streak began on Aug. 24 in Boston.

          HOMEWARD BOUND


          Tampa Bay right-hander Chris Archer (9-9) faces the Yankees in the matinee finale of a series relocated to the Mets' home ballpark in New York because of Hurricane Irma. Immediately following the game, the Rays fly back to Florida for firsthand looks at the storm damage. No word yet from Major League Baseball if Boston and Tampa Bay will play at Tropicana Field on Friday night as scheduled - the Rays expect to host the three-game set, but it could be reconfigured to give them an extra day off to handle personal matters.

          POWER COMPANY

          Minnesota looks to keep up its home run barrage when it hosts another interleague game against San Diego. The wild card-hopeful Twins hit a season-high seven home runs Tuesday night, setting a Target Field record for one game, during a 16-0 rout of the Padres. Jason Castro connected twice and the Twins set a big league mark by going deep in each of the first seven innings, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. On the mound for Minnesota will be Ervin Santana (15-7, 3.45 ERA), who pitched a shutout in San Diego on Aug. 2.

          LESTER IS MORE


          With the Cubs holding a slim lead over St. Louis and Milwaukee in the NL Central, veteran lefty Jon Lester (10-7, 4.35 ERA) looks for his third straight win when Chicago hosts Matt Harvey (5-4, 5.82 ERA) and the depleted Mets. The defending World Series champions had lost three in a row and six of eight before Tuesday night's 8-3 victory over New York.

          HARD EIGHT


          Rangers left-hander Martin Perez (12-10) tries to win his eighth straight start, which would match Kenny Rogers' team record set in 2005, when he faces Nelson Cruz and the Mariners. Perez is one of five big league pitchers this year to win at least seven consecutive starts - the others are Jacob deGrom and Clayton Kershaw with eight each; and James Paxton and Jason Vargas with seven each. Perez also joined Rogers and Hall of Fame pitcher Ferguson Jenkins as the only Rangers pitchers to twice win at least six starts in a row.

          MINUS ONE

          As the Red Sox try to hang onto first place in the AL East, they will be without speedy and versatile infielder Eduardo Nunez ''at least another week,'' manager John Farrell said. Nunez bruised his right knee on a headfirst slide Saturday and has experienced tightness and swelling. An MRI revealed a sprain, but it was ''not MCL or ACL-related,'' Farrell said.

          ROLLIN' ROYAL


          Brandon Moss has homered in three straight games as Kansas City gets set to face Lucas Giolito and the last-place White Sox. Giolito was ejected by plate umpire Gabe Morales last time out for arguing balls and strikes. Moss hit a grand slam in the first inning Tuesday against Chicago and has nine RBIs in his past three games.

                      September 13, 2017


                      Hottest team: Indians (20-0 last 20) vs. Tigers


                      The American League pennant will have to go through Cleveland once again. The Indians tied the 2002 Oakland Athletics’ record for most consecutive victories by an AL team after blanking the Tigers, 2-0 on Tuesday. Cleveland hasn’t allowed more than two runs in seven straight wins, while yielding only five runs in the past six victories over Detroit in September.

                      The Indians go for win number 21 in a row in a matinee at Progressive Field as Mike Clevinger takes the mound. The right-hander hasn’t given up a run in his last three starts, while striking out 22 batters in his past 18 innings of work. Clevinger owns a perfect 3-0 record against the Tigers this season, yielding one run in 18 innings, while scattering eight hits.

                      Coldest team: Dodgers (1-11 last 12) at Giants

                      Although Los Angeles snapped its 11-game losing skid in Tuesday’s 5-3 victory at San Francisco, the Dodgers still qualify for this category. It wasn’t easy, as closer Kelsey Jansen escaped a bases-loaded jam to give Los Angeles its first win since September 1 at San Diego, which was also started by Clayton Kershaw. The Dodgers have lost 15 in a row when Kershaw doesn’t toe the rubber, with the last victory by a starter other than the Cy Young winner coming on August 25 against Milwaukee.

                      Yu Darvish will look to extend the winning streak to two at AT&T Park as the right-hander has lost his past three starts, all as a favorite of -200 or higher. In Darvish’s previous two outings, he has allowed 10 earned runs in only 7.1 innings of work, but he does boast a 2-1 record in three road starts with the Dodgers since getting traded from Texas in late August.

                      Hottest pitcher: Doug Fister, Red Sox (5-7, 3.91 ERA)


                      In Fister’s first four starts with Boston, the Sox lost three times, while allowing 18 runs in that span. The right-hander has turned things around recently, as Boston has compiled a 4-2 record in his past six starts, including a pair of dominating performances against red-hot Cleveland. Fister has tossed at least seven innings in four consecutive starts, including recent victories over the Blue Jays and Yankees. The Red Sox continue their series with the A’s after Boston pounded Oakland on Tuesday, 11-1.

                      Coldest pitcher: Tyler Glasnow, Pirates (2-6, 7.45 ERA)

                      Pittsburgh couldn’t capitalize off Monday’s shutout of Milwaukee as the Pirates lost last night at Miller Park. Things won’t get easier as Glasnow searches for his first victory since May 18. Granted, the right-hander has been pitching at Triple-A the last few months, but he finished his tenure with the big club losing his final three starts, while giving up 16 runs in that span.

                      Biggest OVER run: Athletics (9-1 last 10)

                      Oakland’s offense took the night off on Tuesday following a productive weekend against Houston. The A’s topped the nine-run mark in all four victories against the Astros, but could muster only a single run in Tuesday’s 11-1 blowout at Boston. Another OVER can be in the works at Fenway Park as Jharel Cotton has registered three straight OVERS for Oakland, while allowing at least five runs in four of his past five road starts.

                      Biggest UNDER run: Orioles (5-0 last five)


                      Baltimore is going backwards at the wrong time by dropping its sixth consecutive game on Tuesday, 3-2 in walk-off fashion to Toronto. The Orioles’ offense isn’t helping the cause by scoring two runs or fewer in five losses during this stretch. Kevin Gausman looks to end Baltimore’s recent woes as the right-hander was knocked around in his past outing against the Yankees by allowing five earned runs in a 9-1 defeat. In spite of that OVER against New York, the Orioles are 7-2 to the UNDER in Gausman’s last nine starts.

                      Matchup to watch: Astros vs. Angels


                      Houston is still firmly in control of the AL West, but the Astros were tripped up this past weekend in a four-game sweep by the Athletics. The Astros likely won’t get home-field advantage in the American League as the Indians have passed Houston in that department following Cleveland’s massive winning streak. However, the Astros did end their losing streak on Tuesday behind Justin Verlander in a 1-0 shutout of the Angels to send Los Angeles to its fourth defeat in the last five games.

                      Lance McCullers, Jr. was set to start for the Astros, but he was scratched due to arm fatigue. Mike Fiers will take the mound in McCullers’ place, looking for his first victory since August 23 against the Nationals. The right-hander hasn’t pitched well of late, allowing 14 earned runs in a pair of starts against the Rangers and Mets, while giving up two earned runs in an inning of relief of a 9-8 setback at Oakland last Friday. Fiers has seen success against the Angels this season by posting a 2-0 record, including a 5-3 victory in Anaheim back in May.

                      Tyler Skaggs counters for Los Angeles, as the southpaw is winless in his last five trips to the mound. The Angels are 1-4 in this stretch with the only victory coincidentally coming against the Astros in a dramatic 7-6 triumph as L.A. erased a 6-1 deficit. The Angels’ offense has been quiet of late by scoring one run or fewer in three of its last four losses, but the Halos own a solid 7-1 record in their last eight Game 2’s of a home series.

                      Betcha didn’t know:
                      The Twins have the ability to bust out the bats at any given time. Minnesota dropped a 20-spot earlier this season in a blowout of Seattle, while ripping San Diego on Tuesday, 16-0. The Twins have responded well after scoring in double-digits by posting a 6-2 record in their next game in the last eight opportunities in this situation. Following last night’s win, Minnesota has compiled nine consecutive victories over National League opponents.

                      Biggest public favorite: Nationals (-325) vs. Braves

                      Biggest public underdog: Yankees (+105) vs. Rays

                      Biggest line move: Mariners (-105 to -110) at Rangers

                        • MLB notebook: Japanese star plans to join major leagues in 2018
                          September 13, 2017


                          Japanese sensation Shohei Otani, a 23-year-old right-handed pitcher and left-handed hitter, is expected to be posted by his team and play in the major leagues in 2018, according to multiple reports.

                          Otani has put up MVP pitching and hitting numbers for the Nippon Ham Fighters.

                          Otani, commonly referred to as the Japanese Babe Ruth, hit .322 with 22 home runs and 67 RBIs in 104 games and had a 1.86 ERA and 174 strikeouts in 140 innings last season.

                          Injuries to his ankle and thigh sidelined Otani for two months early this season and kept him off the mound for a stretch in July and August. He has still managed to hit .346 with seven homers and 28 RBIs in 51 games this season.

                          Otani signed a one-year, $2.37 million contract with the Fighters in December and said he wanted to move to the major leagues after the 2017 season.

                          --The Marlins agreed to move this weekend's scheduled home series against the Brewers to Milwaukee as Miami attempts to recover from the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, it was announced.

                          "Major League Baseball, in conjunction with the Miami Marlins, agreed that it is in the best interest of our community to relocate this weekend's Marlins games," Marlins president David Samson said in a statement. "Marlins Park stood ready to host the games, but we all agreed that burdening public service resources was not the proper course of action.

                          "Following Hurricane Irma, the Miami Marlins realize that all of our employees, as well as our entire community, have other needs that must take a priority at this time."

                          Marlins Park sustained minor roof damage in the hurricane, which ravaged the state of Florida.

                          --The Rays
                          will return home to play at Tropicana Field on Friday following the relocation of the three-game series against the New York Yankees to Citi Field due to Hurricane Irma.

                          Players met Tuesday before a designated home game at Citi Field in New York and voted to travel back to the Tampa area after Wednesday afternoon's game against the Yankees to check on the status of their houses and belongings in the Irma aftermath.

                          The Rays host the Boston Red Sox in a three-game series starting Friday and the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday and Wednesday in the five-game homestand.

                          --Ten-time All-Star
                          and three-time World Series champion David Ortiz is returning to the Boston Red Sox ... in a front-office role.

                          The Red Sox announced they have a "long-term agreement" with Ortiz that "should link him with the organization forever."

                          Ortiz will act as a mentor for current players, participate in recruitment efforts, make a variety of special appearances and work in a business development capacity for Fenway Sports Management and its partners, the team announced.

                          --The Cincinnati Reds
                          placed right-hander Drew Storen on the 10-day disabled list with a right elbow sprain, the team announced Wednesday.

                          The move is retroactive to Sept. 10, although the 30-year-old Storen last pitched against Pittsburgh on Sept. 1. Storen posted a 4-2 mark with one save, a 4.45 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 54 2/3 innings of relief this season.

                          • LEADING OFF: Indians go for 22nd straight, Miller off DL
                            September 13, 2017

                            A look at what's happening all around the majors Thursday:


                            RECORD RUN

                            Now that they've set an AL record with 21 consecutive wins, the seemingly unstoppable Indians take aim at the major league mark of 26 in a row by the 1916 New York Giants. Cleveland tries for No. 22 when it hosts Kansas City in the opener of a four-game series. Josh Tomlin, who is 5-0 with a 2.57 ERA in his last six outings, pitches against Royals rookie Jake Junis. Kansas City was outscored 20-0 during its three-day visit to Cleveland last month, but maybe Junis can finally slow down the Indians. He is 4-0 with a 2.48 ERA in his past six starts. With a 5-3 victory Wednesday over Detroit, the Indians matched the 1935 Chicago Cubs for the second-longest winning streak since 1900. One note about those 1916 Giants - their century-old record includes a tie during the string. At 14-0, the Indians are off to the best September start since the 1991 Minnesota Twins went 15-0.

                            EVEN STRONGER

                            As if the Indians needed any help, they expect to get All-Star reliever Andrew Miller back following his second stint on the disabled list with knee tendinitis. Cleveland pitching coach Mickey Callaway said the club hopes to have Miller pitch Thursday in a ''low leverage'' situation where he gets one out in an inning. From there, the Indians will give Miller a few days off and then steadily increase his workload to prepare him for the postseason. ''He feels great,'' Callaway said. ''We're very encouraged with everything so far.'' One of the majors' best late-inning pitchers, Miller is 4-3 with a 1.65 ERA in 48 games.

                            KING FELIX RETURNS

                            Felix Hernandez (5-4) is expected to come off the disabled list to make his first start for Seattle since July 31, when he also pitched at Texas. Hernandez is set to start the finale of a four-game series against the Rangers, but could be limited to about 50-60 pitches. This is the second time this season Hernandez has been on the DL because of right shoulder bursitis - he missed almost two months the other time. Hernandez is 19-23 with a 3.93 ERA in 52 career starts against Texas.

                            MARLINS TO MILWAUKEE

                            After wrapping up their series in Philadelphia, the Marlins will head to Milwaukee rather than back home. The team's three-game series starting Friday against the Brewers has been moved from Miami to Wisconsin as South Florida recovers from Hurricane Irma. Miami, which has lost four in a row and 14 of 16, will be the home team in Milwaukee - but the first game at Marlins Park since the storm will instead be Monday against the New York Mets. Marlins officials didn't want to strain the resources of police and fire rescue crews to work the Brewers games.

                            ''All of our employees, as well as our entire community, have other needs that must take a priority,'' team president David Samson said in a statement.

                            Major League Baseball agreed the decision was in the best interests of South Florida, Samson said. The switch means three extra games at Miller Park for the Brewers, who are competing for a National League playoff berth.

                            ''It works out certainly good for us,'' manager Craig Counsell said. ''I hope it turns out to be an advantage, I'm not going to lie to you.''

                            The series is the third in the majors to switch sites in recent weeks because of hurricanes.

                            The scheduling change means Miami's current trip will become a three-city, 10-game swing. In anticipation of Irma, family members accompanied the team on its trip, and they're expected to go to Milwaukee as well.

                            HOME RUN HAPPY

                            Philadelphia rookie Rhys Hoskins tries to go deep again when the Phillies host Miami. He hit his 17th homer in just his 33rd major league game Wednesday night. Hoskins, called up from the minors on Aug. 10, is the fastest player in big league history to get to 17 career homers. The previous record was 42 games by Wally Berger, an outfielder for the Boston Braves in 1930.

                              NFL trends for Week 2:

                              — Tampa Bay is 1-8 vs spread in last nine games as a home favorite.

                              — Oakland covered seven of last ten games when favored.

                              — 49ers are 5-10 vs spread in last 15 games as a road underdog.

                              — Minnesota Vikings are 13-6 in last 19 games as a road dog.

                              — Jets are 1-5-1 vs spread in last seven games as a road underdog.

                              — Green Bay covered just three of last 12 gamed when getting points on the road.

                              ****************************

                              Thursday’s List of 13: Doing some thinking out loud……

                              13) Houston Texans played terribly in their opener; now news that LB Brian Cushing is out for 10 weeks due to a PED suspension and things just got a little more depressing for the Texans.

                              12) Apparently the Denver Broncos lost interest in drafting Dak Prescott last year when he missed the flight to come visit the team after the NFL Combine. Prescott showed up later that night but you only get one chance to make a first impression. Denver drafted Paxton Lynch instead, a subplot to Sunday’s game at Mile High Stadium.

                              11) Marlins-Brewers series, scheduled for Miami this weekend, has been moved to Miller Park in Milwaukee as hurricane cleanup efforts continue in south Florida.

                              There is still no power at the Marlins’ TV studio in Miami.

                              10) Tuesday night in Philly, Giancarlo Stanton threw out a runner at second base, a runner at third base and another at home plate— that would’ve been the game-winning run. That was the first time an outfielder has thrown out runners and 2B, 3B and home in the same game since Dale Murphy of the Braves did it in 1991, also in Philadelphia.

                              9) The All-Star break isn’t the halfway mark of the season anymore; next year, the Orioles will play 98 games before the All-Star break. With the season starting in late March now to allow for four more off days per team, the halfway point in terms of games will be in June.

                              8) Cubs and Cardinals won’t like this; the All-Star break is four days for 28 teams, but these two teams play on Thursday, July 19, making their All-Star break only three days. That game will be the first of seven games in 11 days between Cubs/Cardinals.

                              All-Star Game is in Washington next summer.

                              7) Indians-Twins are playing a two-game series in Puerto Rico April 17-18. Figures to be a little warmer in San Juan than Minneapolis in April.

                              6) San Francisco Giants will open on the road in Los Angeles next year; it’ll be the 9th year in a row the Giants are opening the season on the road.

                              5) This guy Rhys Hoskins looks like the real deal for the Phillies; he has plate discipline, takes his walks and his power definitely plays in the Phillies’ small home ballpark. He is a keeper.

                              4) Dodger reliever Brandon Morrow appeared in his 39th game Tuesday night; if he appears in one more game, he nets himself a $250,000 bonus.

                              3) Indians 5, Tigers 3— Cleveland won its 21st straight game, but Detroit’s catcher/manager were both tossed in the 3rd inning for bitching about balls/strikes with plate umpire Quinn Wolcott, who had been squeezing pitcher Buck Farmer on balls/strikes early in the game.

                              Soon after play resumed after the ejections, new catcher John Hicks completely missed catching a Farmer pitch— the ball drilled Wolcott near the collarbone.

                              Immediately, Indians’ TV guys insinuated Hicks had missed the ball on purpose, so it would hit Wolcott. Only Hicks knows for sure.

                              2) They listed the attendance in Cleveland Wednesday as 29,346; looked a lot more crowded than that— people were still waiting outside to get in the ballpark in the second inning.

                              Their crowd of 24,000+ Tuesday night was disappointing, considering how great the Indians have been playing, but it seemed like Wednesday, everyone took the afternoon off from work and came out to the ballpark.

                              1) By the way, as an A’s fan, congrats to the Indians on this great streak. 2002 was so much fun for me, as the A’s found a way to win 20 games in a row at just about this same point of the season. Hope it translates to postseason success in Cleveland.

                              Maybe somebody will make a movie about them.
