    ST. LOUIS (AP) In a most sticky situation, Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina couldn't find a ball that clung to his chest protector and the Chicago Cubs turned the bizarre play into a late rally, beating St. Louis 6-4 on Thursday.


    The Cardinals led 4-2 in the seventh inning when things became kooky at Busch Stadium.


    Pinch-hitter Matt Szczur led off by striking out on a pitch from Brett Cecil that skipped in the dirt. The ball bounced into Molina's protector and appeared to get trapped by a sticky substance.


    Molina kept looking around for the ball, and didn't find it until Szczur safely made it to first base. The Gold Glove catcher could only smile and fans in sellout crowd laughed - really, who'd ever seen such a thing?


    Catchers sometimes put pine tar somewhere on their uniforms, often around the shin guards, to help give them a better grip.


    Once Szczur reached on what was scored as a wild pitch, the Cardinals lost their grip on this game.


    After a walk, Kyle Schwarber hit a go-ahead, three-run homer. The Cubs added another run later in the inning against Cecil (0-1).


    The World Series champions won two in a row after losing to the Cards on opening night.


    John Lackey (1-0) threw six solid innings against his former team and new Cubs closer Wade Davis got his second save. Addison Russell drove in a pair of runs on groundouts for Chicago.


    REDS 7, PHILLIES 4


    CINCINNATI (AP) - Relief pitcher Michael Lorenzen connected for a pinch-hit homer that put Cincinnati ahead and the Reds overcame a rough major league debut by Rookie Davis to beat Philadelphia.


    Adam Duvall also homered as the Reds rallied from an early three-run deficit to take the opening series, winning two of three.


    Lorenzen's solo homer - the second of his career - off Adam Morgan (0-1) put the Reds ahead 5-4 in the sixth inning. Manager Bryan Price used the reliever because he's working with a short-handed bench.


    Cody Reed (1-0) got his first major league win by escaping threats in each of his two innings. Drew Storen pitched the ninth for his first save.


    The Phillies blew a 4-1 lead set up by Daniel Nava's two homers off Davis.

    METS 6, BRAVES 2

    NEW YORK (AP) - Matt Harvey dominated with a fastball in the mid-90 mph range and uncommon efficiency in his return from major surgery, beating Atlanta and giving New York hope his injury woes are behind him.


    Travis d'Arnaud hit a two-run double and Wilmer Flores a two-run homer against Jaime Garcia (0-1), who made his Atlanta debut after eight seasons with St. Louis.


    Harvey (1-0) walked off the mound to a standing ovation, far different from his previous appearance on July 4, when he was chased in the fourth inning and stared at the field from the dugout, a white towel draped over his left shoulder, a despondent look on his face.


    With the Mets in Harvey's favored blue jerseys for the first time this season, he allowed three hits in 6 2/3 innings, leaving after Matt Kemp's second solo home run. Harvey threw 55 of 73 pitches for strikes, fanned four and walked none.

    DODGERS 10, PADRES 2



    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Yasiel Puig homered twice to help Los Angeles rout San Diego.


    Puig was 2 for 3 with two walks, two runs, four RBIs and a stolen base.


    Puig hit a two-run homer to left off the first pitch from Jered Weaver (0-1) in the second inning. The Cuban star homered off Weaver again in his next at-bat in the fourth inning, belting another two-run shot to left field to give the Dodgers a four-run lead.


    Brandon McCarthy (1-0) allowed just two runs on four hits in six innings.


    Weaver, who grew up in the Los Angeles area and played at Long Beach State, pitched in a different uniform for the first time in his career after spending 11 years with the Angels. He allowed four earned runs on five hits in five innings.


    Wil Myers hit a two-run home run to right field off McCarthy in the sixth.

    TWINS 5, ROYALS 3



    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jason Castro and Jorge Polanco hit consecutive RBI doubles in the seventh inning, and Minnesota dented Kansas City's bullpen again to sweep the season-opening series.


    After dropping their first nine games last season on the way to a major league-most 103 losses, the Twins are 3-0 for the first time since 2007. The Royals have their first 0-3 start since 2001.


    Salvador Perez and Mike Moustakas homered off Twins starter Kyle Gibson to take Jason Hammel off the hook in his Royals debut, but new reliever Mike Minor (0-1) let the Twins take the lead again.


    Taylor Rogers (1-0) worked the seventh for the victory, and Brandon Kintzler pitched a perfect ninth for his first save. Twins relievers have logged 10 scoreless innings, three games into the season.


    MARLINS 4, NATIONALS 3, 10 INNINGS


    WASHINGTON (AP) - Justin Bour doubled in the go-ahead run with two outs in the 10th inning after the Marlins erased two leads against a shaky Nationals bullpen, and Miami earned its first win of the season.


    In a game delayed by rain for more than an hour both at the start and in the middle of the sixth, Bour sent a shot off Joe Blanton (0-1) down the left field line. That brought home J.T. Realmuto, whose single in the 10th was his third hit of the game, including a two-run homer in the eighth that made it 2-all.


    David Phelps (1-1) earned the win with a scoreless ninth inning. A.J. Ramos, Miami's sixth pitcher, worked the 10th to earn his first save. He put two men on with one out, then retired Ryan Zimmerman and Anthony Rendon to end it.

    MARINERS 4, ASTROS 2



    HOUSTON (AP) - Jarrod Dyson hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the ninth inning and Jean Segura drove in a run later in the inning to lift Seattle over Houston.


    The game was tied at 2 entering the ninth before Danny Valencia walked with one out and Carlos Ruiz was plunked by Ken Giles (0-1). They were replaced by pinch-runners Taylor Motter and Guillermo Heredia before Dyson's fly ball landed between left fielder Nori Aoki and center fielder Jake Marisnick to allow Motter to score and put Seattle on top.


    Segura singled with two outs to send Heredia home for an insurance run that made it 4-2.


    Dan Altavilla (1-0) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win and Edwin Diaz struck out two in a perfect ninth for his first save.


    BLUE JAYS 5, RAYS 2


    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Kendrys Morales hit his fourth career grand slam, Marcus Stroman pitched 6 1/3 effective innings and Toronto beat Tampa Bay.


    Morales homered off Blake Snell (0-1) in the third. Stroman (1-0), the MVP of last month's World Baseball Classic, allowed one run and six hits in his 2017 debut.


    Snell gave up five runs and four hits in 6 2/3 innings. The lefty struck out five and walked five.


    Darwin Barney had a one-out single in the third, and Josh Donaldson and Jose Bautista both drew two-out walks before Morales sent an 0-1 pitch into left-center field seats for a 4-0 lead.


    Jason Grilli came in for Joe Smith with two on and one out in the ninth and threw a run-scoring wild pitch before getting his first save.


    DIAMONDBACKS 9, GIANTS 3


    PHOENIX (AP) - Jake Lamb hit a three-run homer and Arizona won a four-game series over San Francisco at Chase Field for the first time in nine years.


    The Diamondbacks needed seven tries to win a home series in 2016 but are 3-1 for the first time since 2013 under first-year manager Torey Lovullo. And they did it against the Giants, who won nine of 10 in the desert last season.


    Arizona's David Peralta and Paul Goldschmidt hit solo homers off Jeff Samardzija (0-1), and Peralta and A.J. Pollock each had two RBIs.


    Jorge De La Rosa (1-0) got one out and walked two after replacing Robbie Ray in the sixth inning.

    ROCKIES 2, BREWERS 1



    MILWAUKEE (AP) - Nolan Arenado and Mark Reynolds homered and Antonio Senzatela pitched five strong innings in his major league debut to help Colorado beat Milwaukee.


    Arenado homered off Neftali Feliz (0-1) leading off the ninth. Former Brewer Reynolds led off the third against starter Chase Anderson with his second home run of the season.


    The Rockies won three of four games in the season-opening series.


    Kirk Nieuwenhuis tied it in the seventh with a solo homer off reliever Adam Ottavino.


    Mike Dunn (1-0) picked up the win with 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief. Greg Holland finished for his third save in three chances.

    WHITE SOX 11, TIGERS 2



    CHICAGO (AP) - Matt Davidson had his first career triple and first home run with Chicago.


    Geovany Soto, the catcher who joined the White Sox as a free agent this offseason, added his first two home runs for Chicago to help give Rick Renteria his first victory as the team's manager.


    James Shields (1-0) threw 5 1/3 innings, allowing two hits and striking out five. Shields allowed Tyler Collins' solo homer in the second inning to open the scoring, but the Tigers managed only four hits.


    Soto's three-run home run in the third made it 5-1 and chased Detroit starter Matthew Boyd (0-1).

    ATHLETICS 5, ANGELS 1



    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Andrew Triggs pitched into the sixth inning for his second major league win, Ryon Healy homered to cap a four-run third and Oakland beat Los Angeles for an opening four-game split.


    Triggs (1-0) allowed an unearned run, four hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings. The right-hander gave up Albert Pujols' RBI groundout in the third and left after consecutive singles in the sixth.


    Liam Hendricks, Santiago Casilla and Sean Doolitte combined for hitless relief.


    Tyler Skaggs (0-1) had gotten a victory in his first start each season from 2013-16 but that streak came to an end. He gave up five runs, five hits and three walks in 5 1-3 innings.

    Armadillo: Friday's six-pack


    — Baylor’s Jonathan Motley tore his MCL in the South Carolina loss; will that cause him to come back to school next year, or will he still enter the NBA Draft?


    — Houston Astros shifted their defense 2,236 times LY, 347 more times than anyone else.


    — Duke’s Luke Kennard is off to the NBA Draft; Blue Devils will once again have a lot of new faces.


    — Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is on the bereavement list, is out until Monday.


    — Ryan Howard signed a minor league deal with Atlanta; surprised it wasn’t with an AL team, where he could DH.


    — Irony: The Kentucky Coal Museum is installing solar panels to save on energy costs.


    **********


    Armadillo: Friday's List of 13: Random stuff with weekend here…….


    13) RIP Don Rickles, 90, the comedian who became famous by insulting EVERYONE. The guy busted Frank Sinatra’s chops and got away with it- not many people did that. Rickles wasn’t the least bit politically correct, back in an era where people could laugh at themselves instead of being so damn sensitive, the way we are these days.


    Reading social media Thursday; Rickles was beloved by modern entertainers, from Chris Rock to Jimmy Kimmel. RIP, sir.


    12) Saw a great story of how Rickles was in Tommy Lasorda’s office in Dodger Stadium late in the 1977 baseball season; Lasorda told him to put a uniform on and sit next to him on the bench, so he did.


    In the sixth inning, Lasorda tells Rickles to go out and change pitchers; seriously, he did, and Rickles went out and changed pitchers, though the pitcher (Elias Sosa) apparently wasn’t real happy about it. Harry Wendelstedt was the ump; when he went to the mound and saw it was Rickles, he asked him if he could get him tickets to see Dean Martin in Las Vegas.


    11) I’m watching the Padres this week and I’m wondering, if Trayce Thompson was a Padre, would he hit 4th or 5th? With the Dodgers, he is in AAA.


    10) San Diego’s TV analyst Mark Grant owns a Toyota with 274,000 miles on it; that must be one hell of a car.


    9) Dustin Johnson withdrew from The Masters; here at SouthPoint, they refunded bets made on Johnson, but at William Hill sportsbooks, there were no refunds. Would be a cold day in hell before they got any more of my business- thats just common sense.


    8) When the Giants lost in Arizona Sunday, after Madison Bumgarner homered twice, it was just the third time since 1960 that a pitcher homered twice in a game that his team lost.


    7) Mets faced a lefty last night and Wilmer Flores batted cleanup; I’m thinking, jeez thats not good, but Terry Collins is a sharp guy— Flores homered to break the game open as the Mets won 6-2.


    6) Reds 7, Phillies 4— Not often the game-winning hit is a pinch-hit HR by a pitcher, but Michael Lorenzen got one here- it is the first pinch-hit HR by a pitcher since 2009, when Micah Owings hit one, also for Cincinnati.


    5) Stanford-Notre Dame played a regional final in the womens’ tournament in Rupp Arena in Lexington, a building that seats 23,000- they drew 2,527 fans. Only one of the four regional finals in the womens’ tournament drew more than 3,200 fans.


    4) December 5, hoop doubleheader in Phoenix: St John’s-Grand Canyon, Arizona-Texas A&M.


    Chris Mullin must think his team will be pretty good next year; they’re involved in another twinbill, this one in Staples Center; St John’s-Arizona State and Oklahoma-USC.


    3) Atlanta Hawks’ Thabo Sefolosha banked a $4M settlement from an incident outside a New York City nightclub couple years ago where the NYPD beat him up pretty good and broke his leg. The incident was captured on film, which usually helps the plaintiff.


    2) A woman on Jeopardy lost $17,200 on Final Jeopardy because she couldn’t come up with the Raptors as the answer— she guessed Timberwolves as “the animal that is this NBA team’s primary mascot peaked 75 million years ago.”


    1— Quote of the Day, Part 2: “Isaiah Briscoe leaving UK. Don’t want to be mean-spirited but not sure he has single NBA skill. And shooting is critical for NBA guard.”
    ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla, who isn’t normally very critical.

    LEADING OFF: Scherzer ready; Wheeler, Ryu return to majors
    April 7, 2017


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



    PITCHING IN

    Reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer takes the mound for Washington against the Phillies in their home opener. Scherzer's spring preparation was delayed because he was still in pain from a fractured knuckle on his pitching hand. ''I'm good to throw 100 pitches. ... That's what's so exciting about where I was at, to where I am now,'' Scherzer said, adding that he considers being able to make his first start without missing time in the regular season ''a major accomplishment.''


    WHEELS UP


    Mets righty Zack Wheeler is set to start a series opener against Miami, his first big league appearance since Sept. 25, 2014. Wheeler injured his elbow pitching against Miami in a spring training game on March 9, 2015, and had Tommy John surgery 16 days later. He returned last summer and threw 17 pitches over one inning in a rain-shortened start on Aug. 6 for Class A St. Lucie, then complained of elbow discomfort and didn't pitch again. ''Certainly, he'll (be) amped up,'' New York manager Terry Collins said. ''Emotionally, I'm sure he'll be nervous.''

    LONG ROAD BACK



    Hyun-Jin Ryu returns to the mound for the Dodgers after making just one start over the past two seasons because of left shoulder surgery and other injuries. The South Korean left-hander was excellent for Los Angeles in 2013 and `14, and he looked sharp this spring training, putting up a 2.57 ERA over 14 innings. Lefty Kyle Freeland, the eighth overall pick in the 2014 draft, will make his major league debut for Colorado.

    SECOND TIME AROUND



    The reigning Rookie of the Year in the AL has another honor to look forward to: Michael Fulmer is set to start the home opener for Detroit. Fulmer takes the mound when the Tigers host the Boston Red Sox in Detroit's first home game of the season. The right-hander went 11-7 with a 3.06 ERA last year, helping Detroit contend for a postseason spot until its final game.


    KANSAS CITY SCUFFLE


    The winless Royals travel to Houston looking to get their offense off the ground. Kansas City amassed five runs on 16 hits while being swept over three games in Minnesota. The Astros, meanwhile, are coming off a series win against Seattle to begin the season. Jason Vargas starts for the Royals, and Mike Fiers is up for Houston.


    HARDCOURT TO HARDBALL


    Former St. John's basketball player Amir Garrett will make his major league debut when the Reds face St. Louis. The left-hander played two seasons with the Red Storm even after signing as a 22nd-round pick with Cincinnati in 2011. He eventually gave up hoops to focus on baseball full-time, a move that seems to have paid off. The 24-year-old had a 2.55 ERA last season split between Double-A and Triple-A.

    Weekend Outlook
    April 7, 2017



    Should Win Total bettors that took the Minnesota Twins Under 70.5 be concerned about a perfect 3-0 start to the season? No need to sweat just yet with 159 games to go, but as for the next two weeks the Twins might be a good team to support while getting longer plus-money prices. Keep the rally going while it's hot.


    The Twins hit the road this weekend to take on the White Sox and a sweep against a team figured by Las Vegas to win 68.5 games isn't beyond the realm of reality.


    The big question for Minnesota moving forward is how its starting pitching will hold up. After three games; so far, so good.


    But we'll get a look at that back-end of the rotation with Phil Hughes on Friday who comes off a spring of allowing opponents to bat .353. And then on Saturday left-handed rookie Adaiberto Mejia, who was sensational in spring, gets the nod. Then its back to the top of the order on Sunday with ace Ervin Santana facing Jose Quintana, who just allowed six runs to Detroit on opening day.


    Because of the Twins No. 4 and 5 starters, the White Sox are going to be favorites to win the series. Sox No. 4 Derek Holland and No. 5 Miguel Gonzalez just don't evoke enough fear to halt making a wager on the Twins to win the series as an underdog while momentum is in their favor. You just have to win two out of three.


    Momentum, Sunday's Santana start and possibly the bats bailing out Hughes is what's at stake.


    Here's a look at a few series I'll be keeping a close eye on this weekend:


    Cleveland (3-0) at Arizona (3-1)

    Scheduled rotation: Tomlin vs Miller, Bauer vs Greinke, Kluber vs Corbin


    Arizona had high expectations out of the gate last season and failed, but this year we're seeing a little bit of the line-up production expected which has had all four of its games go 'over' the total. They came from behind to win three of four against the visiting Giants to start the season and it's something to think about when Cleveland visits this weekend when just handicapping pitchers. A.J. Pollock back in the lineup after missing all of last season has been huge so far. So has Chris Ownings, Jake Lamb and Paul Goldschmidt.


    So before just thinking about the great Indians rotation that won the A.L. Pennant last season, think about a hot team like Arizona hitting well at home. However, Cleveland just comes off a successful campaign 3-0 campaign at Texas. It's just part of the reason why Arizona will be a significant underdog in the series.


    NY Yankees (1-2) at Baltimore (2-0)
    Schedule rotation: Severino vs Jimenez, Tanaka vs. Gausman, Sabathia vs. Miley

    C.C. Sabathia gave a nice five inning shutout performance against Tampa Bay is his first start to get the win and it will be interesting to see how the 36-year old veteran follows it up. The good news is that Chase Headley is hitting .636 and Jacoby Ellsbury .455, which is huge while while franchise-phenom catcher Gary Sanchez (.071) finds his groove. The Yankees are a team I'm high on this season, or at least to fare better than expected which was 83.5 wins in Las Vegas.

    Seattle (1-3) at Los Angeles Angels (2-2)

    Scheduled rotation: Gallardo vs. Chavez, Hernandez vs. Nolasco, Iwakuma vs. Shoemaker


    I'm anxiously awaiting to see how King Felix performs Saturday at Anaheim following being yanked after five innings and 65 pitches Monday at Houston. Groin tightness is the issue, maybe caused by Hernandez going through a rigorous off-season regime of building lower body strength for his legs. This could be a lingering issue despite Hernandez saying it isnt and that he'll start. As for Nolasco, his pitcher rating might be too low. He found a place that wants him enough to make him the No 1 starter based on winning his final three decisions last year and only allowing three runs in a 4-2 loss at Oakland.


    San Francisco (1-3) at San Diego (1-3)
    Scheduled rotation: Bumgarner vs. Perdomo, Cain vs Chacin, Cueto vs. Richard


    Saturday's game is the one that looks the most intriguing with Matt Cain getting the start after seven spring appearances allowing 23 runs where opponents hit.343. But before you go jumping on the Padres to win, consider that "No. 1 starter" Jhoulys Chacin gave up nine runs in 3.1 innings opening day at Dodger Stadium. The thing that could save both their ERA's is the park itself and the 5:40 p.m. PT start time causing some unique shadows.


    The other starter to take note of is the Padres' Clayton Richard on Sunday who beat the Dodgers on Tuesday with eight shutout innings after San Diego lost 14-3 the game before. He's going to present value in the first half of the season, especially at a pitchers park like Petco Park.


    Boston (2-0) at Detroit (1-1)
    Scheduled rotation: Wright vs. Fulmer, Rodriguez vs. Zimmermann, Porcello vs. Norris, Sale vs. Verlander.


    On Monday, the fourth game of the series will have newly acquired Chris Sale against Tigers' ace Justin Verlander who comes off a solid spring where he allowed opponents to hit only .208. This past Tuesday in his season debut, he allowed two runs over 6.1 innings in a win against the White Sox.


    Chris Sale went seven strong innings at home against the Pirates where at he allowing no runs and three hits over seven innings where the pitching staff let him throw 104 pitches. Boston would win in extra innings.

    Thursday's Sports in Brief
    April 7, 2017


    GOLF



    AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) Dustin Johnson has withdrawn from the Masters after injuring his lower back in a fall at the home he was renting for the week.


    The world's No. 1-ranked player arrived at Augusta National on quite a roll, having won his last three starts.


    But he never took a shot at the first major championship of the year.


    Johnson walked to the first hole as if he was going to play in the final group of the day, but changed his mind at the last possible moment. Bubba Watson and Jimmy Walker teed off while Johnson sauntered back to the clubhouse, a stunning start to the tournament.


    His Masters was over before it ever began.


    Johnson was injured late Wednesday afternoon when he took what his agent described as a ''serious'' fall down a staircase.

    BASEBALL



    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Of course he did.


    Tim Tebow hit a home run in his first official at-bat as a New York Mets minor leaguer, a charmed start for a popular yet polarizing athlete who seems to have a knack for these remarkable moments.


    Playing a sport where many thought he didn't even belong in the batter's box, the former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner launched a two-run drive for the Columbia Fireflies in a Class A South Atlantic League game against Augusta. It was his only hit in five plate appearances.


    ''All of my sports experiences helped me for moments like that,'' Tebow said.


    With a 15 mph wind blowing out, Tebow hit a shot just over the 372-foot sign in left-center field. He stopped at second base, thinking it was a double - but the ball hit a railing above the fence at the Bojangles Berm, and an umpire twirled his hand to indicate it was a homer.


    PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks are following the Colorado Rockies and adding a humidor to store baseballs.


    Diamondbacks President and CEO Derrick Hall told Arizona Sports 98.7 FM that the team had been considering it for some time and hopes to have one installed in about a month.


    Hall said the team asked former Diamondbacks pitchers what they liked and didn't like about pitching at Chase Field. Most said gripping the baseball in Arizona's hot, dry air was the biggest issue.


    The Rockies installed a humidor in 2002 to combat the effect Denver's high altitude has on the baseballs. Colorado is the only team in Major League Baseball to use a humidor.


    HOCKEY


    If another labor war is brewing for the NHL, Jonathan Toews won't be caught off-guard.


    The Chicago Blackhawks captain shrugged when asked this past week about the bad, old days, like the lockout that wiped out the 2004-05 season and the delayed beginning of the 2012-13 season not all that long ago.


    ''Wouldn't be surprised,'' he said. ''Can't say anyone should be surprised at this point.''


    The NHL announcement Monday that it won't participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea next February shattered the harmony that appeared to be building after the return of the World Cup last year. To many players, it also seemed like an odd choice with the NHL adding games in Europe and making distinct efforts to gain a foothold in China, site of the next Winter Games in 2022.


    While Olympic participation isn't an issue central enough to all 700-plus players to trigger a work stoppage as early as 2020, frustration over how the situation was handled has led many to wonder if the next collective bargaining negotiations will take an ugly turn.

    IAAF



    Defending Olympic and London marathon champion Jemima Sumgong has failed a drug test, the IAAF confirmed.


    The sport's governing body says Sumgong ''tested positive for EPO following a no-notice test conducted by the IAAF in Kenya.''


    Sumgong was the points leader in the World Marathon Majors series and was in line to receive a $250,000 bonus when the two-year cycle is completed in Boston on April 17. The series said it won't name a women's winner until doping officials have resolved her case.


    WMM general manager Tim Hadzima said the series is distressed to learn of the reports but that, ''if true, they indicate that we are gaining ground in our long-standing fight against doping.''


    The World Marathon Majors awards prizes to runners with the top finishes over six of the most prestigious annual marathons, plus the Olympics and world championships.

    Armadillo: Tuesday's six-pack


    Odds to win the Stanley Cup this spring:


    3-1— Chicago, Washington


    7-2— Minnesota


    5-1— Columbus


    8-1— San Jose, Montreal, Pittsburgh


    10-1— Edmonton


    16-1— Anaheim


    **********


    Armadillo: Tuesday's List of 13: Nobody asked me, but…….

    13) Steve Fisher retired as San Diego State’s coach Monday night, ending a 26-year career where he compiled a 495-288 record, winning the 1989 national title with Michigan, when he replaced Bill Frieder just before the NCAA tournament, after Frieder bolted for Arizona State.


    Fisher later built San Diego State’s program up from practically nothing to one of the best programs in the west- he will be missed.


    12) Cubs raised their World Series championship banner last night; they’ve moved the bullpens to under the outfield bleachers, and put in 500 new, premium-priced seats down each foul line, where the bullpens used to be. Cubs beat the Dodgers 3-2 to win their home opener.


    11) What have you done for me lately?


    NHL’s Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014, their only Cups in 52 years of existence, but they fired coach Daryl Sutter Monday, after six full seasons with the Kings- he won two of the last five Stanley Cups, but got canned- doubt he’ll be out of work long.


    10) Reminder; if you’re in Las Vegas and come to the SouthPoint Casino, bring a fleece or a light jacket- excellent place to watch sports, but a little cool in here.


    9) You meet people from all over the country here; was talking to a guy from Louisiana Sunday night— he told me one of the main reasons Ben Simmons chose to play basketball at LSU was that lot of the bigger-name schools wouldn’t OK a camera crew following Simmons around all the time so Showtime could do their infomercial/documentary on him.


    Hard to figure out why LSU’s season went so far into the dumper that season.


    8) Then there was the conversation between two friends sitting behind me last night, while I was watching the Padres-Rockies game. These two guys were talking politics and apparently they hadn’t seen each other since last November’s election. It was a spirited discussion between two friends, but it got heated now and then- they didn’t agree on too much.


    7) Padres 5, Rockies 3— Wil Myers hit for the cycle, just the second Padre (Matt Kemp) ever to do that.


    6) Mets 4, Phillies 3— Teams carry so many pitchers these days, their benches are short; Mets were tied 2-2 in the 7th inning last night- they had go-ahead run on second with two out and a righty on the mound for the Phils.


    Terry Collins had Michael Conforto in the on-deck circle, but if he uses Conforto there, Philly puts a lefty in, and Collins counters with Wilmer Flores. So he used Flores against the righty, preserving Conforto for later in the game (he never got in) if he needed him. Smart.


    5) Heat 124, Cavaliers 121— Miami stays alive in the playoff race, barely beating a Cleveland team playing without Lebron James/Kyrie Irving. Heat still needs the Pacers to lose a game to make the playoffs— Indiana beat the 76ers in Philly last night.


    4) Giants 4, Diamondbacks 1— Buster Posey got beaned in his first at-bat yesterday, was removed from the game as a precaution. Giants later scored three runs on a ground ball to the pitcher, something you rarely see, even in a Little League game.


    3) NFL announced the Saints-Dolphins game from London will be one of those hideous 9:30am ET kickoffs. Imagine working in a sports book here in Las Vegas, with a 6:30am kickoff? Oy.


    2) Active managers who will be in the Hall of Fame someday: Bruce Bochy, Joe Maddon and Terry Francona. Cubs’ GM Theo Epstein will also get in.


    1— Lawson brothers bolted Memphis’ basketball team last week; four of their teammates have since followed them out of town, gutting the Tigers’ roster- they’re basically an expansion team right now, a total rebuild.


    Lawsons surfaced Monday at Kansas; we’ll see how that goes.


    I know this; recruiting is a cut-throat business and it never seems to end.

    Tuesday's MLB Game of the Day: Orioles at Red Sox
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Pomeranz originally was slated to make his season debut over the weekend in Detroit before a rainout on Thursday curtailed that plan.


    Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox (A: -105, H: -115, Total: 9.5)


    What oddsmakers consider most when making MLB betting odds: Live From Las Vegas
    Ever wonder what goes into those daily MLB moneylines and totals? We get the inside story behind the numbers from Johnny Avello, executive director of race and sports for the Wynn Las Vegas.


    It may only be a week into the regular season, but the early story of the Boston Red Sox's campaign has been manager John Farrell's inability to fill out a lineup card in the way he had hoped during spring training. One day after placing Jackie Bradley Jr. on the disabled list, the Red Sox expect to get back Xander Bogaerts from bereavement leave on Tuesday as they return home to begin a two-game series with the Baltimore Orioles.


    Farrell told reporters Monday the clubhouse at Fenway Park was fumigated and disinfected a few times while Boston was visiting Detroit over the weekend in an effort to fight a flu bug that has sidelined Hanley Ramirez and Mookie Betts while also sending reliever Robbie Ross to the disabled list. To add further insult to injury, Bradley joined Ross on the 10-day DL on Monday after learning he suffered a right knee sprain, while Bogaerts' return from Aruba was delayed a day when his flight never was cleared for takeoff Sunday night. The Orioles took a day off Monday to lick their wounds after becoming the last major-league team to suffer a loss in Sunday's 7-3 setback against the New York Yankees. Baltimore's dominant bullpen imploded in that defeat, as its relievers were charged with every run - including four in the ninth inning to Darren O'Day.

    TV:
    7:10 p.m. ET, MASN2 (Baltimore), NESN (Boston)

    LINE HISTORY:
    The Red Sox opened at -120 and that moneyline has come back slightly to -115. The total hit the board at 9.5 and hasn't moved.

    INJURY REPORT:



    Orioles - CF J. Rickard (Out Indefinitely, finger), SP C. Tillman (Early May, shoulder), OF A. Santander (Out Indefinitely, elbow).


    Red Sox - X. Bogaerts (Probable, personal), 1B H. Ramirez (Questionable, flu), RP J. Kelly (Questionable, flu), CF J. Bradley Jr. (Out, knee), SP D. Price (Early May, elbow), RP R. Ross Jr. (Late April, flu), SP D. Pomeranz (Probable, arm), RP C. Smith (Early June, elbow), RP T. Thornburg (Late April, shoulder).

    WEATHER REPORT:
    It should be a beautiful evening for baseball at Fenway Park on Tuesday. Evening temperatures are expected to be in the low-70's with partly cloudy skies. Hitters may enjoy the wind as there is a 10-15 MPH wind in the forecast blowing OUT to left center.

    PITCHING MATCHUP:
    Orioles RH Dylan Bundy (1-0, 1.29 ERA) vs. Red Sox LH Drew Pomeranz (2016: 11-12, 3.32)


    Bundy allowed one run and four singles while registering eight strikeouts over seven innings in a win against Toronto on Wednesday. The fourth overall pick in the 2011 draft threw 69 of his 99 pitches for strikes and did not issue a walk as he limited the Blue Jays to one hit outside of a stretch in the third inning, when he gave up three straight. Bundy went 1-2 with a 6.75 ERA in six games (three starts) versus Boston last season and struggled against the two hitters he has faced the most: Bogaerts (4-for-12) and Dustin Pedroia (5-for-11).


    Pomeranz originally was slated to make his season debut over the weekend in Detroit before a rainout on Thursday curtailed that plan, so he will draw his first start in the opener of this series instead after dealing with a flexor strain and a triceps issue during the spring. The 28-year-old struggled at Fenway after arriving from San Diego in a mid-July trade, going 0-2 with a 6.43 ERA in seven appearances (six starts). One of those poor home outings came in his lone 2016 start versus the Orioles, as he gave up five runs - including a pair of homers - over only two innings.

    TRENDS:



    * Orioles are 5-0 in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600.
    * Red Sox are 1-5 in their last 6 vs. American League East.
    * Red Sox are 1-4 in Pomeranz's last 5 home starts.
    * Under is 5-1 in Orioles last 6 games vs. a left-handed starter.
    * Under is 4-0 in Bundy's last 4 starts overall.
    * Under is 6-1 in Red Sox last 7 games vs. a right-handed starter.
    * Under is 10-1-1 in Pomeranz's last 12 starts overall.
    * Under is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.

    WALK-OFFS:



    1. Orioles CF Adam Jones and 1B Chris Davis have homered in the same game 36 times since becoming teammates in 2011 - the highest total for any teammates over that span.
    2. Boston is the only team that has yet to allow a stolen base, as Cs Sandy Leon (three) and Christian Vazquez (one) have thrown out the runner on each of their four attempts.
    3. All seven of the runs Baltimore's bullpen has allowed in 20 2/3 innings this season came in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.

    CONSENSUS:
    Early consensus on this rivalry matchup has 62 percent of the wagers on the home team Boston Red Sox and Over is picking up 52 percent of the totals selections.

    Tuesday's Diamond Notes
    April 11, 2017



    Hottest team: Angels (5-2) vs. Rangers

    Los Angeles pulled out a three-game sweep of Seattle in the most dramatic of ways by erasing a six-run ninth inning deficit in Sunday’s 10-9 triumph. The Halos have won five of six games since losing the opener at Oakland, while scoring at least five runs in each of their five victories.


    Tyler Skaggs takes the mound tonight in the start of a three-game series with the Rangers. Skaggs was roughed up by Oakland in his last start by allowing five earned runs in 5.1 innings of a 5-1 defeat on April 6. The southpaw was winless in four home outings in 2016, including in a 2-1 defeat to Texas last September in spite of tossing six scoreless innings.


    Coldest team: Blue Jays (1-5) vs. Brewers

    Toronto finally plays its home opener after dropping five of six games to Baltimore and Tampa Bay. The Jays, a playoff team the last two seasons, are hitting .199 as a club and have plated two runs or fewer in four of five losses. The good, third baseman Josh Donaldson is batting .348 through the first six contests. The bad, shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has racked up three hits in 24 at-bats, while catcher Russell Martin is hitless in 14 plate appearances.


    Twenty-game winner from last season J.A. Happ looks to bounce back after losing his season debut at Baltimore, 3-1, in spite of striking out nine batters in seven innings of work. Toronto faces a Milwaukee squad that has stumbled to a 2-5 record out of the gate, while allowing at least six runs in four of its defeats.


    Hottest pitcher: Dylan Bundy, Orioles (1-0, 1.29 ERA)


    Baltimore has jumped out to an impressive 4-1 start as Bundy is responsible for one of those victories. The right-hander yielded four hits and one earned run in seven innings of a 3-1 home win over the Blue Jays last Wednesday. Bundy won 10 games last season for Baltimore, but didn’t have much luck against tonight’s opponent as the Orioles posted a 1-2 record in his three starts against the Red Sox. The 24-year old allowed 13 earned runs in 14.2 innings of work against Boston, but did pick up an underdog victory at Fenway Park last September.


    Coldest pitcher: Dan Straily, Marlins (0-1, 13.50 ERA)


    Miami heads back to Marlins Park for its home opener after splitting its first six contests to the Nationals and Mets. Straily was the only Marlins’ starter not to last until at least the fifth inning as the right-hander didn’t make it out of the fourth inning of a 6-4 setback at Washington last Wednesday. The former Reds’ hurler was roughed up by the Braves last season in a 7-2 loss at Turner Field, allowing six earned runs in 6.1 innings. Atlanta dominated Miami in 2016 at Marlins Park by posting a solid 6-2 ledger.

    Biggest OVER streak: Braves (4-0 last four)



    Sticking with Atlanta, the Braves’ pitching has not helped their cause early on by allowing six runs in four defeats and giving up five runs in another loss. Starting pitcher has been decent for Atlanta through the first two series by owning a 2.62 ERA, but the bullpen has imploded at the wrong time by posting a 5.79 ERA. The OVER streak may be in jeopardy with Bartolo Colon taking the mound, who scattered two hits and one earned run in six innings in a 3-1 victory over his former team, the Mets last Wednesday.

    Biggest UNDER streak: White Sox (3-0 last three)

    Chicago’s offense has seen its ups and downs through the first two series by failing to score at least four runs in consecutive games. Yes, the White Sox have posted 11 and six-run efforts in their two wins, but have also been limited to three runs or fewer in their three defeats. The White Sox head to Cleveland this afternoon to face an Indians’ squad that totaled seven runs in its three-game sweep at the hands of the Diamondbacks this past weekend. James Shields heads to the mound for Chicago today as the Sox eclipsed the OVER in six of his eight road outings last season, including an OVER in a 13-2 drubbing at Progressive Field.


    Matchup to watch: Diamondbacks at Giants


    Arizona will look to be a threat to San Francisco and Los Angeles inside the NL West this season as the D-backs have jumped out to a 6-2 mark. The D-backs suffered their second loss of the season on Monday in a 4-1 defeat to the Giants at AT&T Park as Matt Moore shut down Arizona by allowing three hits in eight innings of work for San Francisco. However, the Giants lost All-Star catcher Buster Posey early on after getting hit in the head by a pitch in the first inning. Posey is not expected to suit up in tonight’s contest as the Giants seek their third straight victory.


    Southpaw Robbie Ray heads to the mound for Arizona as he picked up a no-decision in a 9-3 victory over San Francisco last Thursday. Ray gave up three earned runs in 5.2 innings, but the D-backs exploded for seven late runs to clinch the series victory. Arizona struggled last season when Ray was listed as a road underdog by posting a dreadful 2-11 mark.


    Jeff Samardzija counters for San Francisco as he attempts to rebound from a loss to Ray and Arizona as the right-hander yielded six earned runs in 5.1 innings of work, including three home runs. Last season, Samardzija closed out with a 2-7 record in his final nine home starts, but one of those victories came against Arizona last July.


    Betcha didn’t know: San Diego dropped six of its final seven meetings at Colorado last season, but the Padres topped the Rockies on Monday at Coors Field, 5-3. Over the last two seasons, the Padres have actually won the first two games of a series at Colorado three times, including last April when San Diego plated 29 runs in two blowouts in the underdog role.


    Biggest public favorite: Indians (-235) vs. White Sox


    Biggest public underdog: Rangers (+105) at Angels


    Biggest line move: Pirates (-170 to -190) vs. Reds

    LEADING OFF: Indians play home opener, Red Sox fight flu
    April 10, 2017



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


    HELLO AGAIN


    The Indians play their first game in Cleveland since losing an epic Game 7 to the Chicago Cubs in the World Series last season. Most of the baseball world remembers the Cubs ending their 108-year title drought, but the memories aren't so positive for the Indians. ''It still hurts,'' star shortstop Francisco Lindor said last week. ''It's tough. But we've got to turn the page.'' They'll try to do that behind Carlos Carrasco (1-0, 3.18 ERA) while facing James Shields (1-0, 1.69) and Chicago's other team, the White Sox.


    BUSTER BEANED

    Giants star Buster Posey will likely sit out a day but was doing well after being struck in the helmet by a 94 mph fastball Monday. Posey will be re-evaluated before a game against Arizona, but San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy said the catcher is ''doing good'' following the scary moment. ''It's one of the worst sounds you can hear in baseball, the ball hitting the helmet,'' Bochy said. ''It's a scary moment. There's been a lot of damage to hitters hit in the head.''


    FLU FIGHTERS


    The flu-ridden Red Sox return to Boston still trying to kick the bug that's ailed the club during the first week of the season. The home clubhouse at Fenway Park was fumigated and disinfected ahead of this homestand after Mookie Betts, Hanley Ramirez, Robbie Ross and even broadcaster Dave O'Brien have been sidelined by illness. Drew Pomeranz (left forearm flexor strain) comes off the disabled list to make his first start of the season for Boston against Baltimore's Dylan Bundy (1-0, 1.29 ERA).

    OUT OF THE GATE



    After a day the surprising Minnesota Twins try to maintain the momentum of a 5-1 start when they visit the Detroit Tigers. Meanwhile, the Toronto Blue Jays attempt to regroup from a 1-5 start when they play their home opener against Milwaukee.


    WELCOME SIGHT


    Trying to shake off his slow start, new Cardinals leadoff man Dexter Fowler faces Washington Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Fowler is 10 for 20 with a home run and four extra-base hits against Gonzalez in his career.

    DUSTY'S PRAISE



    The Nationals placed Trea Turner on the disabled list Monday with a strained right hamstring, but manager Dusty Baker was thrilled to only lose the shortstop for 10 days instead of 15 thanks to an offseason rule change. The minimum DL stay was shortened to 10 days for non-concussion-related injuries as part of the new collective bargaining agreement. ''I think baseball did one of the best things they've done in a long time,'' Baker said.

    Hot-hitting Diamondbacks on a roll to start the season
    April 10, 2017



    PHOENIX (AP) The Arizona Diamondbacks have apparently needed more time to warm up, falling behind in six of their first seven games before their bats got going.


    Arizona has wasted little time in getting up to speed this season, matching its best start as a franchise behind a powerful, late-starting offense, timely pitching and an enthusiasm that spreads across the clubhouse.


    ''When we have a lot of good moments, when things really go in our direction, that becomes contagious,'' Diamondbacks first-year manager Torey Lovullo said. ''We're doing a lot of good things, doing a lot of things right on a daily basis.''


    Few outside Arizona's clubhouse expected this.


    The Diamondbacks shook up their leadership, luring Mike Hazen away from the Boston Red Sox to replace Dave Stewart as general manager. Hazen brought in Lovullo, previously Boston's bench coach, to manage the team after Chip Hale was fired.


    They did little to change the roster, entering this season with, for the most part, the same team that lost 95 games last season.


    The affable Lovullo said he loved this team coming out of spring training despite the lukewarm prognostications and the Diamondbacks made him look prophetic by going 6-1, matching the 2000 team for the best start in franchise history, during the first week of the season.


    ''You always want to get off to a good start,'' Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin said. ''It's something we haven't done really since I've been here. I think it's important to keep things rolling. Guys are very confident right now so we've got to continue growing.''


    Arizona's offense always seems to be good and finished third in the National League in runs scored.


    This season has gotten off to a roaring start, even by their ball-crushing standards.


    Through Sunday's 3-2 victory over Cleveland, the Diamondbacks led the major leagues in runs - a franchise-record 48 through seven games - hits, RBIs, average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. They were also hitting .422 with runners in scoring position and .375 with two outs.


    Arizona won three of four against their Chase Field nemesis, the San Francisco Giants, then swept the Indians, the reigning American League champions.


    ''We're really not worrying about last year or anything,'' outfielder A.J. Pollock said. ''We're just going out and playing good baseball, playing good tough baseball with pitching, defense and hitting.''


    The pitching has helped fuel their fantastic start.


    Arizona failed to have a quality start five times in its first six games but the bullpen shut opponents down, leading to five wins in those games. Shelby Miller, Zach Greinke and Corbin each earned victories in Arizona's last three wins.


    The Diamondbacks entered Monday's game with baseball's 10th-best ERA at 3.57 and they shut down the Indians over the weekend, holding them to seven total runs.


    ''I think it starts in our starting pitchers,'' Corbin said. ''If we can go out and pitch deep in the ball game, we know offensively how good we are and defensively. And the bullpen's done a great job as well. So if we can just keep things rolling and keep things clicking it should be good.''


    Sustaining this success will be the key.


    A winning first week represents 4 percent of the entire 162-game schedule. The last time the Diamondbacks started 6-1, they finished a respectable 88-77, but were 12 games out of first in the NL West and missed the playoffs.


    Arizona kicked off a 10-game road trip against NL West opponents on Monday with a 4-1 loss to the Giants.


    ''We're in a good place right now,'' Lovullo said. ''We've got to earn the respect of the National League. We have to keep playing good baseball to get the fans to back us. We know they're there. We know they're supporting us. Hopefully we can keep this thing rolling and fill this thing up the rest of the year.''

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) Yoenis Cespedes hit three of New York's seven homers to back Matt Harvey, and the Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 14-4 Tuesday night.


    Harvey (2-0) left with tightness in his left hamstring after allowing two runs and five hits and striking out six in 5 2/3 innings.


    Phillies starter Clay Buchholz (0-1) also exited because of an injury, a strained right forearm. He gave up six runs and eight hits in 2 1/3 innings.


    Lucas Duda hit two homers and Asdrubal Cabrera and Travis d'Arnaud also went deep for New York, which has 46 homers in its last 21 games at Citizens Bank Park.


    Cespedes fell down on a wild swing on the first pitch he saw, then hit a three-run homer to straightaway center field off Buchholz in the first inning. He connected to deep left in the fourth off Adam Morgan and drove another one way out to left in the fifth against Morgan.


    INDIANS 2, WHITE SOX 1, 10 INNINGS


    CLEVELAND (AP) - Michael Brantley doubled home Francisco Lindor with two outs in the 10th inning as Cleveland celebrated its 2016 AL championship and then beat Chicago in its home opener.


    Brantley could only watch and cheer for his teammates last October during their postseason run after undergoing two surgeries on his right shoulder. But he's healthy now, and after playing in just 11 games last season, Brantley made the most of his first home game since May 10 with his game-winning hit.


    Lindor walked with two outs off Tommy Kahnle (0-1) before Brantley sliced a 3-2 pitch down the left-field line. Lindor was running on the pitch and scored easily while Brantley danced around second base before being mobbed by his teammates.


    It was the dramatic ending the Indians didn't get in their last home game, a 10-inning loss to the Chicago Cubs in Game 7 of the World Series. Cleveland led the majors with 11 walk-off wins last season.


    Bryan Shaw (1-0), who took the loss when the Cubs won their first title in 108 years, got the win.


    MARLINS 8, BRAVES 4


    MIAMI (AP) - A gray cat went scrambling for cover in the Marlins Park outfield midway through Miami's home opener, and no wonder, given the barrage off Marcell Ozuna's bat.


    Ozuna homered twice and had a career-high six RBIs to help Miami beat Atlanta.


    Announced attendance was 36,519, and that didn't include a cat that ran onto the field midway through the game. It scurried along the outfield warning track, ran away from right fielder Giancarlo Stanton, crawled up the center field wall and then appeared to get stuck in the animatronic home run sculpture.


    Marlins president David Samson said if Ozuna had hit a third homer, the sculpture would not have been activated for fear of harming the cat.


    Dan Straily (1-1) allowed three runs, two earned, in five innings for his first victory since joining Miami.


    Bartolo Colon (0-1) allowed six runs in four innings.

    ANGELS 6, RANGERS 5, 10 INNINGS



    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Carlos Perez's squeeze bunt in the 10th inning capped another comeback for Los Angeles, which scored three times in the ninth before going on to beat Texas.


    The Rangers led 5-0 through six innings.


    With runners on the corners and one out, Perez set down a perfect bunt that hugged the inside grass and died without going foul.


    The Angels had rallied to score seven runs in the ninth in the previous game on Sunday to beat the Mariners.


    The Angels' ninth-inning comeback Tuesday came off Rangers' closer Sam Dyson. Down 5-2 going into the inning, the Angels got a solo home run from Danny Espinoza, back-to-back doubles by Yunel Escobar and Mike Trout, and a run-scoring single from Albert Pujols to tie it.


    Trout then robbed Mike Napoli of a home run to lead off the 10th.


    Cam Bedrosian (1-0) got the win with an inning of relief and Jeremy Jeffress (0-1) was stuck with the loss.


    RED SOX 8, ORIOLES 1


    BOSTON (AP) - Drew Pomeranz struck out six in his season debut, Dustin Pedroia drove in four runs and Boston beat Baltimore.


    Christian Vazquez added a two-run triple in the eighth, capping off a 4-for-4 game, as the Red Sox tagged Baltimore pitchers for 15 hits and had back-to-back three-run innings in the seventh and eighth to blow the game open.


    Pomeranz, who opened the season on the disabled list with a strained left forearm, took a shutout into the seventh inning. He held Baltimore to four hits and one run in six innings and picked up his first win at Fenway Park.


    Pablo Sandoval had a sacrifice fly in the second and Pedroia had one in the fifth off Dylan Bundy (1-1), who was strong through the first six innings. Bundy pitched 6 1/3 innings, allowing three runs and seven hits.

    TIGERS 2, TWINS 1



    DETROIT (AP) - Matthew Boyd allowed one hit in six outstanding innings and James McCann homered in the fifth to lift Detroit over Minnesota.


    Boyd (1-1) took a no-hitter into the sixth before Robbie Grossman broke it up by lining a clean single to left field with two out. The Detroit left-hander struck out six and walked two before turning the game over to the bullpen. Tigers relievers have struggled so far this season, but they were able to close this game out.


    Francisco Rodriguez allowed a run in the ninth but recovered for his third save in four chances. Pinch-hitter Max Kepler hit a popup with two on to end it.


    Hector Santiago (1-1) allowed only three hits in 6 1/3 innings, but one of them was a two-run shot by McCann.


    NATIONALS 8, CARDINALS 3


    WASHINGTON (AP) - Daniel Murphy homered, doubled twice and tied career highs with five RBIs and four hits and Washington defeated St. Louis.


    Matt Wieters and Jayson Werth also hit solo shots to help Washington earn a second home series victory.


    Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez (1-0) allowed two runs - one earned - over seven innings. He allowed six hits before retiring his last 11 batters.


    Lance Lynn (0-1) allowed six runs - four earned - and five hits and four walks over five innings.


    ROCKIES 3, PADRES 2


    DENVER (AP) - Nolan Arenado hit a go-ahead homer in the seventh, Antonio Senzatela threw seven sharp innings for his first major league win and Colorado beat San Diego.


    Arenado lined a fastball from reliever Miguel Diaz (1-1) to right for his third homer. Carlos Gonzalez and Charlie Blackmon also hit solo shots to help Colorado knot the three-game series with San Diego at a game apiece. The Rockies have a chance to win their third straight series to start the season, a feat only accomplished in team history by the 1995 squad.


    Senzatela (1-0) and his blazing fastball made things difficult for the Padres. He allowed two runs while striking out five. The Rockies' reliable bullpen took it from there, with Greg Holland working his way around a leadoff walk in the ninth to earn his fifth save.


    DIAMONDBACKS 4, GIANTS 3


    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Robbie Ray pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning despite some control issues, Jake Lamb hit a bases-loaded triple and Arizona beat San Francisco.


    Chris Iannetta added an RBI single, and A.J. Pollock singled, scored and made a stellar play in center field to rob Aaron Hill of extra bases in the third.


    Arizona improved to 7-2, matching its best start in franchise history.


    Ray (1-0) settled in after pitching out of a pair of early jams and overcame matching his career high of five walks. The lefty struck out eight and allowed four hits over 6 2/3 innings.


    Fernando Rodney struck out pinch-hitter Brandon Crawford with the tying run at second to end the game. Rodney allowed two runs but earned his third save.


    Jeff Samardzija (0-2) allowed three runs in 6 2/3 innings.


    ASTROS 7, MARINERS 5


    SEATTLE (AP) - George Springer hit his fourth leadoff home run of the season, Evan Gattis had a bases-loaded pinch-hit double and Houston beat Seattle.


    Seattle reliever James Pazos gave up hits to all four Houston batters he faced in the sixth inning - including Gattis' double and a run-scoring single by Alex Bregman - as the Astros scored four runs to take the lead for good.


    Joe Musgrove (1-0) pitched into the sixth inning, giving up three runs and seven hits for Houston.


    Ariel Miranda (0-1) allowed four runs and seven hits.

    REDS 6, PIRATES 2



    PITTSBURGH (AP) - Scooter Gennett homered for the second straight night and finished with three hits, helping Cincinnati overcome the early departure of injured starter Rookie Davis to beat Pittsburgh for its sixth win in seven games.


    Davis, a rookie right-hander, left in the fifth inning with a bruised right forearm after being struck by a pitch from Pittsburgh's Jameson Taillon. He worked four innings in his second major league start, allowing a run, two hits and four walks while striking out three.


    Drew Storen (1-0) pitched the sixth for the win and Raisel Iglesias closed up shop for his third save. Juan Nicasio (0-1) allowed a run in the seventh for Pittsburgh.


    BREWERS 4, BLUE JAYS 3


    TORONTO (AP) - Keon Broxton and Domingo Santana hit solo home runs, Wily Peralta pitched six innings for his second victory in two starts and Milwaukee handed slumping Toronto its sixth straight home opening loss.


    Troy Tulowitzki went 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs but the last-place Blue Jays fell to 1-6, the worst start in franchise history. Three of Toronto's six losses have been one-run decisions.


    Peralta (2-0) allowed three runs and five hits. He walked four and struck out seven. Neftali Feliz finished for his second save.


    Both Milwaukee homers came off left-hander J.A. Happ (0-2), who gave up four runs and nine hits in 4 2/3 innings.
