ARLINGTON, Texas - Shohei Ohtani drilled a bases-loaded, broken-bat line drive right where Texas' second baseman stood on the dirt at Globe Life Park, and parlayed it into a double play in the 10th inning Monday night. One inning later, Luis Rengifo shot a 108-mph missile into the glove of the Rangers' right fielder. Both hard hits ended the last threats by the Angels, who were doomed to an ...

By HOUSTON - Maybe Miguel Cabrera will cut his manager a nice, fat check at the end of the year for all the ejections he's incurred on his behalf this season. It happened again Monday night, in the fifth inning of the Tigers' 5-4 loss to the Houston Astros. With the count 3-2 on Astros' Yordan Alvarez, home plate umpire Alfonso Marquez quickly pulled off his mask, turned to the Tigers' dugout ...

AUSTIN, Texas - Austin Police have identified 27-year-old Aamna Najam as the woman who was the passenger on former University of Texas football star Cedric Benson's motorcycle when the two were killed Saturday in a crash in West Austin. Benson and Najam were both pronounced dead at the scene, police said Monday in their first public comments about the incident. Najam, according to her Linkedin ...

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The walkoff victories the previous two days provided a mask for what's been an ongoing concern about the Rays recent lack of offense. At least they scored enough when it mattered to win another series. But Monday's abysmal two-inning outing by starter Brendan McKay in an ugly 9-3 loss to the Mariners came with no such salve. Plus, it dropped them to 73-53, reducing their ...

ST. LOUIS - Dakota Hudson did not allow a hit in 6 2/3 innings of work and the Cardinals held Milwaukee hitless until two outs in the eighth inning to post a 3-0 win at Busch Stadium on Monday night. Hudson (12-6) was removed with two outs in the seventh because he had thrown 111 pitches with four walks in addition to his seven strikeouts. Giovanny Gallegos relieved and carried the no-hit bid ...

ARLINGTON, Texas - Tyler Skaggs' jersey hung in the visiting clubhouse at Globe Life Park on Monday afternoon. Just like it did in April when the Los Angeles Angels visited for their first series against the Texas Rangers. And just like it did when the team played here the day after Skaggs' death July 1. Skaggs' locker has been set up in stadiums all over the country since the passing of the ...

Antonio Brown showed up to the last day of Raiders training camp Monday morning, presumably putting to bed the unrest that had surrounded him over the last several weeks. But that presumption was apparently wrong. Brown filed a second grievance against the NFL Monday seeking to be allowed to wear his preferred Schutt Air Advantage helmet, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. His initial ...

NEW YORK - During the start of Sunday's loss to Cleveland, the infamous Bleacher Creatures in right field of Yankee Stadium started their traditional roll call. The chants went to center fielder Brett Gardner, who has chosen to flex to the fans since his Yankees debut in 2008. But this time, Gardner put one fist on top of the other, forcing them in an upward motion. He wasn't pretending to ...
