Royals, A's play the feud
Things got even more heated after Saturday's bench-clearing brawl between the A's and Royals. Four KC players and manager Ned Yost were ejected in Kansas City's 4-2 win.
Final: Dodgers 7, Rockies 0
Brandon McCarthy was dealing Sunday, allowing just 3 hits in 6 scoreless innings. Scott Van Slyke provided the offense, going 3-for-4 with a homer and 3 RBI to raise his OPS to 1.600 this season. Box score
Final: Diamondbacks 5, Giants 1
The D-backs took the series 3-1 to extend San Francisco's post-title woes. The Giants fell to 4-10, their worst start since 2000. Good news Giants fans: San Francisco made the playoffs that year. Box score
Rangers hit double digits
The Rangers have only scored in 2 innings, but that's been enough for them to pile up 10 runs. Texas leads Seattle 10-5 at the end of the 6th. Every Rangers batter other than Rougned Odor has a hit. Follow live
Lester throws glove to first base
A ground ball got stuck in Jon Lester's glove, so the Cubs' starter had to improvise to get the out. Lester threw his entire glove to Anthony Rizzo in time to get the runner.
Dodgers pour it on in 6th
The Dodgers hit 3 home runs in a span of 4 batters, with only a walk breaking up the streak. Los Angeles now leads the Rockies 7-0 heading to the top of the 7th. Follow live
