Kernels: Aces Wild

Highlighting the most notable pitching performances in MLB over the past week.


Angels walk off in Anaheim

Unlike their hometown friends, the Ducks, the Angels won in regulation as they walked off in the 9th inning on Albert Pujols' single off Craig Kimbrell to snap a two-game skid. Pujols collected his 17th walk-off hit with a broken bat. Box score

Angels @Angels

Ichthyophobia is spreading all over! Padres walk @MikeTrout intentionally to load the bases for Albert Pujols.

Dodgers go long to knock off Braves

Andre Ethier, Alex Guerrero and Jimmy Rollins each homered in the eighth inning, rallying Los Angeles to a 6-3 victory over Atlanta.


Padres have quality, but no run quantity

Good news for San Diego: with 103 pitches through 6 innings, Tyson Ross has the Padres' 7th consecutive quality start. Bad news, though: San Diego is 2-4 in its past 6 such starts, and the Padres trail the Angels 3-1 in the top of the 7th. Follow live

Angels @Angels

Another quality start for the #Angels as Weaver lifted with two outs in 7th, LAA 3, SD 0. Halos lead A.L. with 27 quality starts.

Final: Dodgers 6, Braves 3

The Dodgers, who scored only two runs after loading the bases three times in the first seven innings, smashed 3 HRs in the eighth inning to break a tie and return to the win column in their series opener against the Braves. L.A. starter Brett Anderson allowed two runs over 7 IP. Box score

Angels @Angels

Trout misses a HR by inches! Double off the wall, men on 2nd and 3rd, no outs in 5th. #Angels

Advantage Angels in Anaheim

Angels starter Jered Weaver is working with a 2-0 lead behind RBI singles from Carlos Perez and Matt Joyce. Weaver has allowed 4 hits and fanned 7 through 5 innings as L.A. aims to end its two-game skid. Follow live


Dodgers' derby lifts L.A. to lead

The Dodgers smashed 3 home runs in the eighth inning to take a commanding 6-2 lead against the Braves and end Nick Masset's night with 4 ER on 3 HR in 1 IP. Follow live

Final: Mariners 4, Rays 1

Braves recover from rocky start

Atlanta starter Williams Perez has settled down since walking in the game's first run in the first inning. The Braves bats have supported the right-hander with RBI singles in back-to-back innings to take a 2-1 lead in L.A. Follow live

Pirates 4, Marlins 2

Pirates SP Charlie Morton limited the Marlins to two runs on 8 hits over 7 innings, and Francisco Cervelli and Pedro Alvarez hit homers in a fourth straight win. Box score


Final: Blue Jays 6, White Sox 0

The Jays' bats spotted starter Drew Hutchison four runs in the first inning, and the right-hander took care of the rest with a shutout to earn the team's second straight win. Box score


Forsythe rakes HR for Rays' first score

Logan Forsythe homered in the sixth inning to get the Rays on the board and cut the Mariners' lead in half. Forsythe now has five HR on the season. Tampa Bay trails 2-1 in the bottom of the 7th. Follow live
