If there is a silver lining to the Astros’ 8-1 loss in Game 3 of the ALCS on Monday night, it’s this: Collin McHugh saved the bullpen, pitching four shutout innings and retiring 12 of the 13 hitters he faced.
The Stephen Strasburg flu game will go down in baseball lore. After almost not starting Wednesday’s Game 4 of the National League Division Series against the Chicago Cubs – a must-win game for the Washington Nationals – Strasburg set a franchise record for strikeouts in a postseason game, punching out 12 batters over seven shutout […]

When Washington Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg came off the disabled list for an Aug. 19 start, he allowed two runs in the bottom of the first inning.

Just when it looked like it was all over, the Cleveland Indians prevailed. The Indians extended their historic winning streak to 22 games Thursday night after defeating the Kansas City Royals 3-2 in a come-from-behind victory during extra innings at Progressive Field. With the Royals on top 2-1 in the ninth inning, Cleveland was down […]
The Twins made Major League history Tuesday, becoming the first team to homer in each of the first seven innings of a game in their 16-0 rout of the Padres at Target Field.
