Chen Leads Orioles Past Red Sox,10-6

iStockphoto(BOSTON) — Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen had a perfect game through 5 1/3 innings as Baltimore (86-59) defeated the Boston Red Sox (63-83) on Wednesday, 10-6.

Chen (15-4) set down the first 16 Red Sox batters he faced before catcher Dan Butler took a 2-0 pitch and sent it off the Green Monster for a double. Chen finished the day allowing three hits and one earned run while striking out four over seven innings of work.

Baltimore scored six runs in the third inning off of Red Sox starter Brandon Workman (1-9). The O’s added two more on catcher Caleb Joseph’s ninth home run of the season.

The Red Sox scored five runs in the ninth. Orioles reliever Darren O’Day recorded his third save of the season by retiring shortstop Xander Bogaerts with two runners on.

Tigers Beat Royals, Earn Tie Atop AL Central

David Banks/Getty Images(DETROIT) — Max Scherzer gave up just one run in six and two-thirds innings, helping the Detroit Tigers defeat Kansas City 4-2 on Tuesday night. The victory pulled Detroit (80-65) within percentage points of the Royals (79-64) atop the American League Central.

Rajai Davis and J.D. Martinez both homered in the game, as Detroit took a 3-0 lead after two innings. Kansas City made an attempt at a comeback in the fifth on an RBI single by Omar Infante, but could not complete the big inning against Scherzer.

Last year’s Cy Young winner only gave up seven hits and four walks, but did strike out six to improve to 16-5 on the year. Closer Joe Nathan almost gave up the lead, allowing a pair of infield singles in the ninth, but finished the job to earn his 30th save of the year.

The Tigers, who had been scuffling in August, have stayed in the pennant race thanks to impressive play against Kansas City. Detroit is 11-4 this season against the Royals and can sweep their division rivals on Wednesday.

Both teams did leapfrog the Seattle Mariners for the second wild card spot on Tuesday, thanks to Seattle’s 2-1 loss to Houston.

Royals’ Danny Duffy Will Miss Next Start

Royals’ Danny Duffy Will Miss Next Start

BananaStock/Thinkstock(DETROIT) — Kansas City Royals pitcher Danny Duffy will miss his next start due to rotator cuff inflammation, the team announced Monday.

Duffy underwent an MRI and examination on Sunday and general manager Dayton Moore said his starter’s left shoulder is “structurally sound,” but that he will miss his next scheduled start “and will require three, four days’ rest before being re-evaluated.”

Duffy is 8-11 and has a 2.42 ERA in 29 games this season.

Blue Jays Lose Cabrera for Rest of Season

Blue Jays Lose Cabrera for Rest of Season

Major League Baseball(BOSTON) — Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera will miss the remainder of the season due to a broken right pinkie finger.

Cabrera suffered the injury when diving back to first base during a pick-off attempt in the third inning of the Blue Jays 9-8 loss to Boston Friday. Cabrera remained in the game until the sixth inning before having to leave the field in the middle of his at-bat.

“I thought it might be broke, but I wanted to stay in the game,” Cabrera said. “When I took a swing the next at-bat, the pain was too much and I had to come out.”

The 30-year-old Cabrera was hitting .301, with 16 home runs, 81 runs scored, 73 RBIs, six stolen bases and a .351 on-base percentage.

“That’s one of our top dogs,” Blue Jays skipper John Gibbons said. “He’s one of those guys that’s really tough to replace. He had a tremendous year for us. That’s tough.”

ESPN: Diamondbacks Fire General Manager Kevin Towers

ESPN: Diamondbacks Fire General Manager Kevin Towers

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — After about four years on the job, ESPN reports that the Arizona Diamondbacks have fired general manager Kevin Towers.

Entering Friday, the Diamondbacks sit at 59-81 and 19 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.

Towers first season with the team was a success as they won the NL West after going 94-68, but that was as good as it got for Towers in Arizona. The team went 81-81 the next two seasons, and this year they have a last-place squad.

Towers traded away players like Justin Upton, Adam Eaton, Gerardo Parra, Ian Kennedy, Trevor Bauer, and Martin Prado. Yet the team has seen very little return from trading away these players. As a result, the club’s performance on the field has suffered.

What is even more alarming is that many of those players have found success since being traded away that they never had while playing for the club.

It is unknown if manager Kirk Gibson will be brought back or not.

Cubs’ Starlin Castro Likely to Miss the Rest of the Season

Cubs’ Starlin Castro Likely to Miss the Rest of the Season

Kent C. Horner/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — Earlier this week the Chicago Cubs lost first baseman Anthony Rizzo for an indefinite period of time, and now it has been revealed that shortstop Starlin Castro is likely to miss the rest of the season with a high ankle sprain.

Castro injured himself when he slid into home during the first inning of the team’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers. His cleat got caught in the dirt around home plate. An MRI revealed the sprain.

“Right now the prognosis is four weeks to come back,” general manager Jed Hoyer said Wednesday. “We’re not going to shut him down. His mentality is he can beat four weeks and come back.”

After a down season in 2013, the 24-year-old Castro has rebounded quite nicely in 2014. If his season is truly over, he’ll have played 134 games this season while batting .292 with 14 home runs and 65 RBIs.

“In my mind’s eye he’s had a very productive season,” manager Rick Renteria said. “He’s dealt with a lot of different things very positively. He’s worked extremely hard.”

Rookie Javier Baez will shift over from second base to shortstop.

Rockies Reward Pitcher Jorge De La Rosa with Contract Extension

Rockies Reward Pitcher Jorge De La Rosa with Contract Extension

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Colorado Rockies were not about to let starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa hit free agency as the two sides have agreed on contract extension.

De La Rosa’s new deal is for two years and will pay him $25 million.

The 33-year-old De La Rosa has been with the Rockies since 2008 and he has proven to be a solid, reliable starting pitcher during his time with the team.

Last season, De La Rosa had arguably the best season of his 11-year career as he went 16-6 with a 3.49 ERA. This season, he hasn’t had quite as much success as he’s 13-10 with a 4.26 ERA in 28 starts.

The Rockies are a pitching starved franchise. They rank near the top in most offensive categories in Major League Baseball, but dead last in Major League Baseball in team ERA.

Bourjos Leads Cardinals Past Pirates, 1-0

Bourjos Leads Cardinals Past Pirates, 1-0

iStockphoto(ST. LOUIS) — Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos drove home the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning to give St. Louis (76-63) a 1-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates (71-68) on Wednesday.

With two outs and runners on first and second, Bourjos took a 0-1 pitch from Pirates reliever Mark Melancon (2-4) and singled to center, allowing catcher Yadier Molina to score. St. Louis closer Trevor Rosenthal (2-6) picked up the win, tossing a scoreless one-hit ninth.

Cardinals starter Shelby Miller allowed three hits and three walks while striking out five over seven scoreless innings of work. Pirates starter Edinson Volquez gave up three hits, two walks and struck out five over 6 1-3 innings.

The Cardinals have now won five games in a row.

Cubs First Baseman Anthony Rizzo Out Indefinitely

Cubs First Baseman Anthony Rizzo Out Indefinitely

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — One of the feel good stories for the Cubs this season might have a rough ending as first baseman Anthony Rizzo is out indefinitely with a mild back strain.

“We’re going to be cautious with him,” Cubs president Theo Epstein said Tuesday. “It’s the type of thing where if it was before expanded rosters he probably would be a DL. With the expanded rosters in September there is no need to DL him. We’re going to be cautious and make sure we knock it out. It’s nothing chronic, nothing that will bother him long term, but it’s just something we don’t want to rush back from.”

In his second full season in Major League Baseball, Rizzo made his first All-Star team and gave Cubs fans hope for the future.

In 129 games this season, the 25-year-old Rizzo is hitting .278 with 30 home runs and 71 RBIs.

Reds Shut Down Homer Bailey for the Rest of the Season

Reds Shut Down Homer Bailey for the Rest of the Season

Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Image(CINCINNATI) — Following a disappointing season coming off signing a mega-contract extension, the Cincinnati Reds have decided to shut down starting pitcher Homer Bailey for the rest of the season with an elbow injury.

Bailey had been on the shelf since being put on the DL back on August 16 with a flexor mass strain in his right elbow. Despite the injury, the team was hoping to get him back this month as the Reds fight for a playoff spot in the National League.

According to C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Reds are mulling whether or not surgery could be the best option for the 28-year-old Bailey.

Now in his eighth season with the Reds, the team signed Bailey during the offseason to a six-year extension worth $105 million.

In 23 starts this season, Bailey went 9-5 with a 3.71 ERA along with a 1.23 WHIP. Despite the lucrative contract, Bailey has a career record of 58-50 with a 4.17 ERA.

Mariners Suspend Jesus Montero the Rest of the Season

Mariners Suspend Jesus Montero the Rest of the Season

Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Following a bizarre incident involving an ice cream sandwich, the Seattle Mariners have suspended catcher/designated hitter Jesus Montero the rest of the season.

This past Thursday, during a minor league game for the Boise Hawks, Mariners scout Butch Baccala sent over an ice cream sandwich to the dugout for Montero as a way to heckle him.

Montero has battled weight issues this season, reportedly showing up nearly 40 pounds overweight to spring training earlier this year.

Angered by Baccala’s attempt to embarrass him, Montero reportedly tried to go after him in the stands with a bat.

“I want to apologize on behalf of the Mariners franchise to the Boise Hawks and their fans,” Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said. “We recognize that fans, including children, were impacted by this incident, and the language that was used. We recognize the severity of this incident, and want to assure the Hawks and their fans that it will be dealt with appropriately. In addition, I want to thank Todd Rahr, president and general manager of the Boise Hawks, for his assistance in helping me ascertain what occurred last night.”

Montero was acquired by the Mariners in 2012 for Michale Pineda. He’s struggled to stay in the Majors and produce like the top prospect he once was. The 24-year-old Montero is hitting just .251 during his time with Seattle.

Brewers Activate Starting Pitcher Matt Garza

Brewers Activate Starting Pitcher Matt Garza

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — With the St. Louis Cardinals breathing down their neck in the NL Central, the Milwaukee Brewers are getting reinforcements as the team has activated starting pitcher Matt Garza off the disabled list.

Garza had been on the shelf since early August as he dealt with an oblique injury.

During the offseason, the Brewers signed 30-year-old Garza to a four-year deal worth $50 million.

Aside from the injury, it’s proven to be a wise investment so far. In 23 starts this season, Garza has gone 7-7 with a 3.58 ERA to go along with a 1.13 WHIP.

Garza’s return to the Brewers could not have come at a better time. The team has lead their division for the majority of the season, but now find themselves trailing the Cardinals by one game in the division with just 25 games to play.

The team has Garza scheduled to return to the mound on Wednesday night against the Chicago Cubs.

Four Phillies Combine for No-Hitter Against Braves

Four Phillies Combine for No-Hitter Against Braves

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(ATLANTA) — Phillies starter Cole Hamels left after the sixth inning on Labor Day with a no-hitter in place and watched three other teammates complete the no-hit bid in their 7-0 win over the Braves.

Hamels threw 108 pitches and struck out seven with five walks, but was battling the hot Atlanta heat and exited after getting Phil Gosselin to pop out to end the inning.

Jake Diekman came into the game, but did not know about the no-hitter until he looked at the scoreboard and struck out two in the seventh.

Ken Giles was aware of the combined no-hitter and struck out the side in the eighth inning.

Jonathan Papelbon felt the pressure coming in during the bottom of the ninth and retired Gosselin by getting him to line out to first base to complete the 11th combined no-hitter in major league history.
