    Doug Kern

    Curtis Granderson didn't start last Sunday's game against Baltimore, but was available to pinch-hit. He probably didn't expect to have quite the game he did. Granderson drilled a pinch-hit home run in his first plate appearance in the sixth inning. H...

    After six scoreless innings, Ben Zobrist provided the happy ending to the Rays' game Friday night with a walk-off double in the bottom of the 14th. It tied for the latest-ever (by inning) walk-off hit in Tampa Bay franchise history. Kevin Stocker als...

    The Brewers -- at least temporarily -- have a one-man rotation. Zack Greinke got ejected last Saturday after just four pitches, becoming the first pitcher to get tossed before recording an out since John Lackey's infamous return from the disabled li...

    Nelson Cruz's seventh-inning grand slam on Friday night capped off an eight-RBI performance as the Rangers downed Toronto 14-3. Or should we say, another eight-RBI performance. Cruz had one last season (July 22, also against Toronto). Combined with J...
