Rockets getting to stripe

Rosario homers in Twins 13-0 win

Eddie Rosario homered on the first pitch of his major league career to kick off Minnesota's rout of Oakland. Eduardo Escobar knocked in five runs in the Twins' sixth win in seven tries.

Cardinals' win streak ends at eight

Anthony Rizzo hit his fifth home run of the season and drove in three runs to help the Cubs snap their four-game skid with a 6-5 win over the Cardinals.


Shaq takes a tumble

Can you get fined for flopping when it happens in the studio? Shaquille O'Neal probably hopes not, after he took an epic spill during TNT's halftime show Wednesday night.


Pederson can't stay in the park

Joc Pederson, who homered twice in L.A.'s loss to the Brewers, became the first Dodgers rookie with 6 HR in a 7-game span since the team moved to Los Angeles in 1958 (via Elias). Each of Pederson's last seven hits have been home runs.


Brewers double up Dodgers

The Brewers tagged Joe Wieland for five runs in the first inning and rode Wily Peralta (8 IP, 2 ER) from there to win for the fourth time in five games.


Rose not getting to line

Derrick Rose has driven to the paint 18 times this series, but has yet to attempt a free throw. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said after Chicago's Game 2 loss: "It looks like there's a lot of contact to me. But obviously others don't see it that way."


Rockets pushing back

Houston is on a 10-2 run, cutting the Clippers' lead to 6 and forcing Doc Rivers to call a timeout with 7:35 left in the 3rd quarter. Dwight Howard has 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Rockets. Follow live
