Settling the Score: Tuesday’s results


Tuesday night belonged to Giants rookie right-hander Chris Heston, who threw the first no-hitter of the 2015 season against the Mets at Citi Field.

But how about those Toronto Blue Jays?

Edwin Encarnacion returned from a minor left shoulder injury Tuesday and slugged a walkoff two-run homer as Toronto scored a 4-3 victory over the visiting Marlins. It’s the seventh win in a row for the Blue Jays, who are now back to .500 at 30-30 and boast the very-best run differential in the American League at +54. They’re four games back of the also-streaking Yankees in the AL East standings.

Here’s the replay of that walkoff blast from Encarnacion …

Brandon Morrow shut down at least two more weeks with lingering right shoulder discomfort

An MRI taken Monday night on Brandon Morrow’s throwing shoulder revealed no major structural damage, but the Padres are going to play it safe with the oft-injured starting pitcher

Morrow was all set to return from the disabled list this Friday, but his shoulder flared up on him Sunday in a rehab start at Double-A San Antonio. The 30-year-old posted an impressive 2.73 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 23/7 K/BB ratio over his first 33 innings this season for the Padres, but he’s been on the shelf now since May 3.

Morrow signed a one-year, $2.5 million free agent contract with San Diego in mid-December. It includes around $5 million in performance-based bonuses, but he’s doubtful to trigger many of those now.

The right-hander threw just 33 1/3 innings for the Blue Jays in 2014 and 54 1/3 innings in 2013.

Astros shortstop prospect Carlos Correa launched his first MLB homer Tuesday night in Chicago …

A towering, majestic shot at that. But the Astros still fell 4-2 and are now 0-2 since Correa’s promotion.
