The Boston Red Sox are starting to roll, and have jumped out to a 3.5 game lead in the AL East. Already carrying a couple of high-end relievers in Craig Kimbrel and Joe Kelly, the Red Sox could be turning their attention to adding another bullpen weapon. The sign on the wall of the airport in Nassau clearly prohibited the use of electronic devices in a security line - but this irresistible newswas worth bending the rules to digest. The first two home runs came in the first innings from Willson Contreras and Kyle Schwarber.

The Cubs pounded Orioles starter Kevin Gausman for eight runs and seven hits in the three innings.

I kept staring at it in disbelief, incredulous, reading the words of an email from the White Sox as if trying to interpret a foreign language. During that time they also dismissed their veteran backup catcher before returning home for those final six games.

Arrieta struck out three and walked three.

PIRATES 4, CARDINALS 3: At Pittsburgh, Adam Frazier's game-ending single capped a two-run rally in the ninth against Brett Cecil (1-3), who also gave up Jordy Mercer's RBI double.

"It's always a thought in your mind, especially in our situation coming in here as a female, can I really be successful?"

"It's a really cool feeling". "Seeing the guys you used to play with. I have control of what I do - where I throw the pitch".

"But, all in all, it was a great experience".

His players responded to that challenge. Not to mention, Britton is just one of four left-handed pitchers on the Orioles active roster. Still, would like to see him driving more to left field, but today is not a day for complaining. It was an enjoyable experience.

Sunday was the seventh time the Orioles were shut out this season.

The Cubs scored 4 runs on hits from Happ, Heyward, and Zobrist. The Cubs are in danger of missing the post-season, and Gray could be a piece that helps them overtake the Brewers in the NL Central.

In their first game after the All-Star break, both teams produced a thriller, in a game hit by bad weather Friday night.

Now, Chicago will try for more offense when the defending World Series champions continue a three-game series with Baltimore.

The Baltimore Orioles will look to avoid the sweep after dropping game two on Saturday.

MARINERS 7, WHITE SOX 6: At Chicago, Nelson Cruz homered on a 3-0 pitch from Chris Beck (1-1) leading off the 10th inning, his 19th home run this season, as Seattle overcame a 5-0 deficit and won its fourth straight.

Robertson is highly sought after by the Washington Nationals who are in dire need of a closer. They know he's a far different pitcher now.

"I really liked his routine on the mound", Maddon said.

As much as the crosstown Jose Quintana trade stunned the baseball world, the full ripple effect won't be known for years. Jose Abreu said the trade was difficult to digest and Tyler Saladino an infielder compared the loss of having Quintana in the clubhouse to like losing a family member. The Cubs outscored the O's 27-11, something that's encouraging-even if it's just three games. He was 4-8 with a 4.49 ERA for the White Sox.
