AL East keeping New York Yankees afloat

Any of the teams in the American League East is just a short winning streak away from the penthouse, or a short losing streak from the outhouse.


A weird outing for Padres pitcher

San Diego SP Andrew Cashner became the first pitcher in modern baseball history (since 1900) to strike out at least 12, walk nobody and not make it through 5 IP (via Elias), as the Mets got to him early. And after arguing calls following a 2-1 pitch, Matt Kemp and Bud Black have been ejected as the Mets lead 7-0. Follow live


Seattle Mariners @Mariners

Mayckol Guaipe has thrown 2.1 scoreless innings in his MLB debut. We're doing the 7th inning stretch. Yankees lead the Mariners, 7-0.

Angels @Angels

Ichthyophobia has officially spread to Tampa Bay. Rays are intentionally walking Trout to load the bases for Pujols.

ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo

3 HR of at least 450 feet today, Andre Ethier (451), Freddie Freeman (451) and Joc Pederson (450). (most in day since May 1 2013)

Dodgers dismantle Rockies in opener

Clayton Kershaw stuck out seven batters over 7 innings of two-run ball vs. the Rockies, and the Dodgers broke out the bats to put up a six-run sixth inning and hit four HRs in their 11-4 win.


No no-no, but Mets keep mashing

Jacob deGrom's perfect game and his no-hitter were ruined in the 6th inning, but he's still kept the Padres off the board, and his Mets have provided plenty of run support in a 7-0 game at the stretch. Follow live


ESPN Stats & Info @ESPNStatsInfo

No no-no for Mets tonight. On the anniversary of Johan Santana's no-hitter, Jacob deGrom's perfect-game bid ends after 5 IP vs Padres

Pirates jump to lead after 5th

Andrew McCutchen's 2nd sacrifice fly of the game leveled the score and Neil Walker followed with a 2-run double as Pittsburgh took a 4-2 lead over San Francisco in the 5th. Follow live


Yankees knock King Felix off his throne

Mark Teixeira clubbed a grand slam off Felix Hernandez -- his 15th homer of the season -- to put the Yankees up 7-0 over the Mariners. Hernandez hadn't given up more than 4 earned runs in a start entering tonight. Follow live


All or nothing for the Mets

Andrew Cashner struck out 12 New York batters, but the Mets chased him off in the top of the 5th after scoring 6 runs on 11 hits, including the past 2 runs with 2 outs in the inning. The Pads, meanwhile, have been completely blanked by Jacob deGrom so far as we head to the 6th. Follow live

Freeman on fire in Arizona

Freddie Freeman, who hit a homer in the fifth inning, added another run in the sixth with an RBI single to right field to give the Braves a commanding 7-1 lead over the Diamondbacks. Freeman is 2-for-4 with 3 RBIs and a run.

Rays get two back with homer in 4th

With the Lightning in the Stanley Cup finals, it's only natural that a Tampa Bay player named Franklin would get electric. Nick Franklin, not Ben, hit a 2-run homer down the right field line, and the Rays trail the Angels 4-3 in the top of the 4th. Follow live
