The Dodgers tied a Major League record with their 13th consecutive Interleague victory, capitalizing on a Tigers defensive miscue with an Adrian Gonzalez RBI single in the seventh inning en route to a 3-0 win Saturday at Comerica Park.
Even Rockies leadoff hitter Charlie Blackmon isn’t sure what to make of a recent happy trend. He opened Friday night’s 8-4 victory over the Brewers with his career-high-tying 29th homer. It went the opposite way to left-center field — which is becoming less unusual.
The San Diego Padres optioned outfielder Hunter Renfroe to Triple-A El Paso and recalled outfielder Jabari Blash from El Paso to take his place on the 25-man roster, the club announced Saturday.
Giants head athletic trainer Dave Groeschner acknowledged Friday that Mark Melancon might require offseason surgery to fix his arm fully. Nobody divulged much about the possible procedure, though Melancon indicated that, after years of stoicism, he needs to heal.

The Rockies are about to spring rookie right-hander Antonio Senzatela from the pitching lab. Senzatela, 22, unexpectedly made the season-opening rotation and had a 2.86 ERA through his first seven starts.
