Grandal the hero in Los Angeles

Right after making a run-saving play in the top of the 13th, Yasmani Grandal led off the bottom of the inning with a game-ending home run, resulting in the only run in the Dodgers' 1-0 win. L.A. completes a 3-game sweep of Arizona. Box score

Had a spirited discussion about 4 best living players in our meeting today. Start with Aaron, Mays,Bonds--and I've got Rickey Henderson @ 4.

Almost a run in LA, but not quite

With a runner on 3rd, J.P. Howell uncorked a wild pitch that got away from Yasmani Grandal. But Grandal recovered and tossed it to Howell covering the plate just in time to tag Jordan Pacheco and keep the game scoreless heading to the bottom of the 13th inning. Follow live

Yankees have a Red Sox sweep in mind

Boston P Joe Kelly allowed just 1 hit in his last matchup with the Yankees. The Red Sox will need that Kelly again tonight, as the Yankees look to complete their first sweep of at least 3 games in Boston in more than 9 years. Watch live on ESPN/WatchESPN
