If the first inning was going to be an indication of how Clayton Kershaw’s night would go in the Dodgers’ 4-0 win against the Rockies on Saturday, then it seemed the career-high four home runs he allowed in his previous start were going to have a negative carryover.
Brewers right-hander Chase Anderson logged his sixth straight quality start and Travis Shaw homered and drove in three runs in a 4-2 win over the Pirates on Thursday at Miller Park.
The newest addition to the Phillies starting rotation is pitching like he’s been here before. With another serviceable outing Sunday, Ben Lively became the first Phillies starter to begin his Major League career with four consecutive quality starts since Brandon Duckworth in 2001.
When the Atlanta Braves close out their three-game series with the Giants at AT&T Park on Sunday, Kurt Suzuki will be back behind the plate where he always is whenever knuckleballer R.A. Dickey is on the mound.
Since moving into the rotation, JC Ramirez has been most vulnerable in the first inning, a trend that once again proved true in the Angels’ 7-1 loss to the Tigers on Thursday night at Angel Stadium.
JC Ramirez was only making his fourth Major League start, so when he was surprised he only got four or five pitches on the mound in warmup, it took him off his game early. But he rebounded with a second straight strong performance in a 5-2 Angels win over the Rangers.
Indians pitcher Danny Salazar had nowhere to go but up Saturday after a dreadful first inning against the Mariners.
It didn’t take long to realize that Jake Arrieta was not going to have the same kind of success at Fenway Park on Friday night that he did in 2014, when he flirted with a no-hitter. The Red Sox roughed up Arrieta for five runs in the first inning en route to a 5-4 victory […]
Darren O’Day is getting back on track. And that’s a very, very good thing for an Orioles bullpen that could soon see the return of closer Zach Britton.
The Blue Jays needed a win, and some rest for their bullpen, and starting pitcher Marcus Stroman delivered both with a complete-game victory Sunday against the Angels.
Jose Altuve drove in two runs and Charlie Morton pitched five scoreless innings to lead the Astros to their fifth consecutive win — 3-0 over the Angels on Monday night in the series opener at Minute Maid Park.
Derek Holland might be wearing a new uniform, but the results against the Indians looked the same. The White Sox left-hander has tormented Cleveland’s lineup over his career, and that did not change in a 2-1 victory for Chicago on Wednesday at Progressive Field.
