A true oddity: all AL games feature five in final scores

Too bad it didn’t happen three days ago on 5/5.

All seven American League games Sunday featured one team or the other scoring five runs. The A’s, Rays, Tigers and White Sox all won while scoring five, while the Indians, Rangers and Twins lost with that number of runs.

STATS did the research and said it’s the first time such a thing has happened on a day with a full schedule since Aug. 10, 1993, when all seven National League games featured a team scoring two runs.

Any numerologists out there with any idea of what it all means?

(And we’ll go with Paul Konerko for the pic, in honor of his 5-for-5 day against the Mariners.)

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
