Rangers’ Guilder Rodriguez, 31, Gets First Major League Hit

Rangers’ Guilder Rodriguez, 31, Gets First Major League Hit

Tom Szcaerbowski/Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Tex.) — In what has been a lost season for the Texas Rangers, Monday night was a bright spot as career minor leauger Guilder Rodriguez played a big part in the team’s 4-3 win over the Houston Astros.

Rodriguez has spent the vast majority of his baseball career in the minor leagues before getting called up by the Rangers — 13 seasons and 1,095 games to be exact.

In his second-career start, Rodriguez belted his first Major League hit with members of his family in attendance. As if that wasn’t a big enough moment for him, in the seventh inning he hit a two-out single to drive in outfielder Jake Smolinski for what proved to be the game-winning RBI.

“This is my second-best moment after seeing my two daughters born,” Rodriguez said. “It’s unbelievable. I feel great. My first big league hit, my first RBI, my father in the stands, my wife.”

After the game, Rodriguez received a Gotorade shower from teammate Elvis Andrus.

Braves Fire General Manager Frank Wren

Braves Fire General Manager Frank Wren

Tom Szcaerbowski/Getty Images(ATLANTA) — After missing out on the postseason this season, the Atlanta Braves fired general manager Frank Wren on Monday.

Wren had been with the Braves organization for 15 seasons, and has served as the team’s general manager since 2007.

Team president John Schuerholz has named John Hart as the team’s interim general manager.

Even though the Braves have been competitive under Wren, they’ve had multiple September collapses and have had little postseason success.

Under Wren, the Braves won just three playoff games since 2007 and have not advanced further than the NLDS.

While the dismissal of Wren has been confirmed, there are multiple reports that the Braves going to retain manager Fredi Gonzalez.

The Braves have formed a three-person team to conduct the search for their next general manager. The committee will include Schuerholz, Hart and former Braves manager Bobby Cox.

Cardinals Clinch Playoff Spot, Lose to Reds

Cardinals Clinch Playoff Spot, Lose to Reds

Major League Baseball(SAINT LOUIS) — The St. Louis Cardinals clinched a playoff spot for the fourth straight season, but did so despite losing to the Cincinnati Reds 7-2 on Sunday.

St. Louis (87-69) reached the postseason thanks to Milwaukee’s 1-0 loss to Pittsburgh earlier.

Jay Bruce hit a pair of home runs, two of the four belted by the Reds (72-84), helping Cincinnati snap a six-game losing streak. Starting pitcher Alfredo Simon (15-10) gave up just two run over six innings for the win. Todd Frazier’s solo shot in the top of the sixth gave the Reds the lead for good, one that was ballooned by a Bruce RBI Single later that inning.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals must now fight for the National League Central division crown while battling a flu bug that is going throughout the clubhouse. Both Matt Adams and Matt Carpenter sat out for the second consecutive game due to flu-like symptoms.

“There are a lot of guys that are unavailable,” said St. Louis manager Mike Matheny. “Almost as many unavailable as available.”

Matheny also added that more than 10 players are sick, many of whom may be held back from the team flight to Chicago on Monday. The Cardinals will play the Cubs in a three-game series and currently hold a 2 1/2 game lead over the Pirates in the division.

Kershaw Wins 20th Game, Dodgers Clinch Playoff Spot

Kershaw Wins 20th Game, Dodgers Clinch Playoff Spot

Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — Despite only throwing five innings, Clayton Kershaw picked up his league-leading 20th win of the season as Los Angeles defeated the Chicago Cubs (68-86) 14-5 on Friday. It was the shortest outing in nearly four months for Kershaw (20-3), who was aided by his offense.

“Obviously, you want to go eight or nine every time and be the reason why your team won,” Kershaw said. “But sometimes your team does it for you and you just have to be out there. So that was the way it happened today and I’ll take it.”

The Dodgers hit four home runs as a team, including two from catcher A.J. Ellis. In total, Los Angeles (88-66) racked up 13 hits against Edwin Jackson (6-15) who was making his first start since coming off the disabled list. 

Los Angeles also clinched a playoff spot with Pittsburgh’s 4-2 win over Milwaukee. It’s the second straight season the Dodgers will be in the playoffs as they hold a 3 1/2 game lead over San Francisco in the NL West.

Umpire Suspended One Game for Involvement in Papelbon Incident

Umpire Suspended One Game for Involvement in Papelbon Incident

iStockphoto(NEW YORK) — Major League Baseball suspended umpire Joe West one game without pay for grabbing Philadelphia Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon’s jersey during an argument Sunday.

West and Papelbon got into the argument after West thought Papelbon made an obscene gesture toward the Philadelphia fans because they booed him.
                                                                                                    
After West made the ejection, Papelbon ran back out onto the field, bumping West, who then grabbed the pitcher’s jersey.
                                                                                                                                               

“Joe West handled himself appropriately in ejecting Papelbon after the player’s lewd gesture to the fans,” Major League Baseball executive vice president Joe Torre said in a statement. “I fully understand that Joe was reacting to a player who was acting aggressively, and can understand his frustration with the situation.

“However, Joe knows that an umpire cannot initiate physical contact with a player just as a player cannot initiate physical contact with an umpire. I spoke to Joe about the incident, and he admitted that there was a better way to handle the situation. I consider this matter closed.”

Papelbon has already been suspended seven games by the league after they concluded the gesture was directed at the crowd, and for bumping West.

Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton Out for Season

Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton Out for Season

Major League Baseball(NEW YORK) — Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is officially out for the season.

Stanton was hit in the face in a game last Thursday by Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers. The beaning resulted in Stanton suffering facial fractures, dental damages, two black eyes and more than 20 stitches.

Stanton was examined by doctors in Miami Tuesday when it was decided the 24-year-old needed more time to recover.

“As soon as the injury happened, the most important thing was obviously his health,” Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said. “That was always at the forefront. We wanted to make sure he received the best care he possibly could get from the second he was carted off the field.”

Despite being done for the season, Stanton is still a top candidate to win the NL MVP.

For the season, he hit .288 with 37 home runs, 89 runs scored, 105 RBIs, 13 stolen bases and a .395 on-base percentage.

Orioles Clinch AL East for First Time Since 1997

Orioles Clinch AL East for First Time Since 1997

Baltimore Orioles/MLB(BALTIMORE) — For the first time since 1997, the Baltimore Orioles are the American League East champions.

“It’s everything I hoped for, man. It’s an awesome experience,” Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis, who has played with Baltimore since 2006, said. “We worked hard all season long to get where we are now. We got one step out of the way. Now we have a couple more steps to go.”

First baseman Steve Pearce hit a three-run homer to help the Orioles top the Toronto Blue Jays 8-2, giving the O’s their ninth win in 10 games.

“We’re AL East champs,” Pearce said while celebrating in the clubhouse. “Awesome.”

It’s the ninth time the Orioles have won the division, but only the second time since 1983, when they won the World Series.

Ubaldo Jimenez (5-9) earned the win, pitching five innings and allowing two hits, two runs, and four walks while striking out six.

iStockphoto(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) — New York Yankees infielder/outfielder Martin Prado will miss the rest of the season after undergoing an emergency appendectomy early Tuesday morning. The team placed him on the 60-day disabled list.

The Yankees acquired Prado in a trade on July 31 from the Arizona Diamondbacks for minor league catcher Pete O’Brien and a player to be named.  In 37 games with New York, the former All-Star batted .317 with seven home runs and 16 RBIs. He also scored 18 runs and swiped a base.

To take Prado’s spot on the roster, the Yankees added infielder/outfielder Jose Pirela.

Phillies’ Jonathan Papelbon Suspended 7 Games for Lewd Gesture

Phillies’ Jonathan Papelbon Suspended 7 Games for Lewd Gesture

Tom Szcaerbowski/Getty Images(SAN DIEGO) — Philadelphia Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon has been suspended seven games by Major League Baseball for making a “lewd gesture” towards the fans and bumping an umpire.

Papelbon made the gesture towards the Philadelphia fans as he walked off the mound after blowing a save on Sunday against the San Diego Padres and then bumped into umpire Joe West.

While Papelbon admits to bumping West, he says the vulgar motion was not intended towards the Phillies fans. Papelbon grabbed his crotch as he walked off the mound as he was booed by the fans.

“While I completely understand how the fans would perceive my gesture while being booed, it was not my intent whatsoever to insult the fans of Philadelphia,” Papelbon said. “If it was perceived in that manner, I sincerely apologize.”

West had a different take though. “The whole thing started because the fans booed him and he made an obscene gesture. He had no business doing that,” he said. “He’s got to be more professional than that. And that’s why he was ejected.”

Now in his third season with the Phillies, Papelbon actually has a very good season for the last place club. He’s 2-3 with a 2.10 ERA with 37 saves.

White Sox Sweep Twins on Viciedo Walk-Off

White Sox Sweep Twins on Viciedo Walk-Off

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — A less than impressive season for Chicago saw a bright spot on Saturday. The White Sox swept a doubleheader with the Minnesota Twins at home, winning Game 1, 5-1, before a walk-off homer in Game 2 notched a 7-6 victory.

Jose Quintana paced the White Sox (68-80) in the opener with 13 strikeouts while Alexei Ramirez homered in the third to open the scoring. His 15th long ball of the year gave Chicago a 2-0 lead in the third inning before the team tacked on three more in the eighth. Meanwhile, Quintana (8-10) walked just two batters in seven innings of work.

The nightcap was a little more stressful for the White Sox as Minnesota (62-86) opened up a 4-0 lead in the first inning. After Trevoe Plouffe’s RBI single started the scoring, Oswaldo Arcia slammed a three-run shot off Logan Darnell.

Chicago did battle back though, Avisail Garcia’s three-run blast in the bottom of the first made it a one run game before rookie Jose Abreu tied things up with his 34th homer of the year. The White Sox rallied again in the seventh, tying the game on a Conor Gillaspie single, before the Twins took the lead in the ninth.

Kurt Suzuki doubled off Jake Petricka to give Minnesota a 6-5 lead, and seemingly the win. However, Abreu worked a 15-pitch walk from closer Glen Perkins, starting a rally. Pinch runner Jordan Danks was retired on a fielder’s choice from Garcia, but Dayan Vicideo launched a walk-off, two-run homer to left for the victory.

Chicago has now won four straight games for just the second time all season, the first since May 4-7.

“I apologize to my teammates, coaches, the Orioles organization and especially the fans,” Davis said in a statement. ““I made a mistake by taking Adderall. I had permission to use it in the past, but do not have a therapeutic use exemption this year. I accept my punishment and will begin serving my suspension immediately.”

The 28-year-old slugger launched 26 home runs in 2014 but holds a major league-worst .194 batting average for the Orioles, who hold a 10 1/2 game lead in the American League East with 17 games to play. Davis’ suspension will carry into the postseason, under the terms of the league’s drug policy.

Baltimore is already without catcher Matt Wieters and third baseman Manny Machado, who both have undergone season-ending surgery.
