Settling the Scores: Wednesday’s results

31 Comments

So much trade stuff to sift through that I’m going with an express recap this morning.

As for last night’s action: The Troutless Angels dropped another one to the Astros, who regain the lead in the AL West. Lance McCullers pitched seven solid innings and Preston Tucker and Jon Singleton homered. Albert Pujols hit his 30th home run of the season in a winning effort in a losing cause.

This is the latest the Astros have led their division since Sept. 21, 2003. The division then was the NL Central. Which I sometimes forget they’re no longer a part of, but that’s what being old will do to a guy. The rest of the scores:

Indians 12, Royals 1
Tigers 2, Rays 1
Pirates 10, Twins 4
Cubs 3, Rockies 2
Diamondbacks 8, Mariners 2
Giants 5, Brewers 0
Blue Jays 8, Phillies 2
White Sox 9, Red Sox 2
Padres 7, Mets 3
Nationals 7, Marlins 2
Orioles 2, Braves 0
Astros 6, Angels 3
Rangers 5, Yankees 2
Reds 1, Cardinals 0
Dodgers 10, Athletics 7

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Samardjiza has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants due to right shoulder impingement.

Manager Gabe Kapler said before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that the right-hander told trainers and the coaching staff that he felt like wasn’t able to get the arm loose during Friday’s game. Samardjiza is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.

Samardjiza went four-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He is 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA in three starts.

The Giants have recalled left-hander Andrew Suarez from their alternate training site, but Kapler said he hasn’t finalized a revised starting rotation.
