You talkin' to me?
Xander Bogaerts extended his career-long hitting streak to 22 games with a single to left in the sixth inning of the Red Sox's 5-3 win over the Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon.
Rookie Hyun Soo Kim has been an exciting offensive player since joining the Orioles, but it took until Sunday's 6-4 victory over the Indians for the Korean outfielder to finally clear the fence in the big leagues.
Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz was scratched from the lineup about 30 minutes before Sunday's game against the Blue Jays due to lingering soreness in his left foot after being hit by a pitch on Saturday.
With the score deadlocked at 4 in the seventh, Orioles left fielder Hyun Soo Kim launched a 2-2 fastball from Indians reliever Jeff Manship over the right-field wall to put his team up for good in the 6-4 win on Sunday.
Ben Zobrist continued his hot streak, smacking a three-run home run, and Miguel Montero added a solo shot that ricocheted off the right-field video board to lift the Cubs to a 7-2 victory Sunday over the Phillies at Wrigley Field for their fifth straight win.
After running down a fly ball to end the seventh inning, White Sox center fielder Austin Jackson said he felt discomfort in his left foot. One inning later, he was removed from the game with a case of turf toe in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Royals.
The Nationals continue to shine with Stephen Strasburg on the mound. The right-hander pitched six solid innings as Washington routed the Cardinals, 10-2, on Sunday afternoon at Nationals Park.
An MRI taken Sunday on Salvador Perez's left leg showed no ligament damage, and he will not go on disabled list. But the Royals did recall Tony Cruz from Triple-A Omaha on Sunday to add catching depth.
Dustin Ackley did not accompany the Yankees to their charter flight after Sunday's 2-1 victory over the Rays at Tropicana Field, instead preparing to receive an MRI to determine the severity of an injury to his right shoulder.
Outfielder Jayson Werth began Sunday's 10-2 Nationals victory on the bench. But he wasn't on the bench watching the game vs. the Cardinals. He didn't like the way he was hitting lately, so he decided to spend most of the time working on his swing in the cage at Nationals Park and looking at film. He decided to lower his hands in the batter's box if he was given a chance to enter the game as a pinch-hitter.
The best seats in the house.
There were a few interesting developments at Griffith Stadium on Thursday afternoon, but none of those involved the Yankees winning or losing their game against the Washington Senators.
On the same day the Boston Globe quoted one National League scout calling Ryan Braun "the hot name out there" on the trade market, that name was again absent from the Brewers' starting lineup. And this time, it's a new physical ailment.
Michael Pineda will have at least one more chance to turn his troubled season around. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that no changes have been discussed to the rotation, with Pineda set to take the ball for Thursday's makeup game against the Tigers in Detroit.
Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta suffered a minor setback to his rehab when he cut his right thumb opening a box Saturday and required three stitches. Saturday was Peralta's birthday, but Cardinals manager Mike Matheny did not know whether Peralta was opening a birthday present.
Hey, apples are hard.
