7/3/2015 | Sanchez at best with batterymate Avila back

7/3/2015 | Long story short: Homers win it for Braves

7/3/2015 | Former All-Star closer Feliz designated

7/3/2015 | Padres hand Cardinals fourth straight loss
Jedd Gyorko delivered a game-tying home run and the game-winning single to send San Diego to a 2-1 win over St. Louis in front of a sellout crowd at Busch Stadium. St. Louis has now lost four straight, its longest losing streak of the season.
7/3/2015 | Gallo launches first Triple-A home run

7/3/2015 | Gio unfazed by long layoff in beating Giants
With 10 days between starts, Gio Gonzalez's seven innings of one-run ball against San Francisco in Washington's 2-1 win Friday night is all the more impressive.
7/3/2015 | Fiers settling into groove at right time
Right handed pitch Mike Fiers put together a pair of quality starts in his last two outings, but the run support wasn't there for him to pick up a victory. On Friday he made it three straight quality starts, and this time the run support was there for him to earn the win. Fiers (4-7, 3.83) pitched seven scoreless innings to help lead the Brewers to a three-game series opening victory, 12-1, over the Reds at Great American Ball Park. Fiers gave up only three hits and two walks, and added three strikeouts in his first win since June 12.
7/3/2015 | Gomez breaks out in grand fashion vs. Reds
With the bases loaded in the seventh inning, Carlos Gomez said he wasn't focused on hitting the ball out of the park, but that's what he did. With the Brewers already up 5-0, Gomez put the final nail in the coffin with his first career grand slam off Reds reliever Carlos Contreras. The milestone home run landed in left-field seats, and helped lead the Brewers to a 12-1 victory over the Reds in the series opener at Great American Ball Park.
7/3/2015 | Mets don't plan to rush Conforto to Majors
Desperate for offense, the Mets have discussed calling up last year's top Draft pick, outfielder Michael Conforto, who has been thriving at Double-A Binghamton since an early-season promotion. But the team has no plans to debut Conforto anytime soon, general manager Sandy Alderson said.
7/3/2015 | A more upbeat Wright visits team in L.A.
Smiling, laughing, joking -- "that joyful sound" back in his voice, as Terry Collins put it -- the David Wright who appeared at Dodger Stadium on Friday hardly resembled the version who first visited his teammates a month ago in San Diego. But an underlying sense of uncertainty continues to surround Wright and his return from spinal stenosis.
7/3/2015 | Collins' job is safe, Alderson says
Despite the Mets' disappointing play in recent weeks, dropping from 10 games over .500 in late April to exactly .500 at the start of play Friday, team leaders have given "absolutely no consideration" to making a managerial change, general manager Sandy Alderson said.
7/3/2015 | Baseball a 'haven' for Axford in return to Rox
Forget whatever pressure is supposed to come with pitching in the ninth, or any other inning. Rockies closer John Axford finds pitching relaxing.
7/3/2015 | Correa's big hits help Astros outslug Boston
Carlos Correa had a memorable Fenway Park debut, belting three hits, including an RBI single that put the Astros ahead for good in a 12-8 victory over the Red Sox in 10 innings on Friday night.
7/3/2015 | Mets must shop for offensive help
No one has to read too much between the lines. Mets captain and third baseman David Wright isn't going to return from stenosis in his lower spine anytime soon. Consequently, if the Mets are going to find any help for their beleaguered offense, ranked 29th in the Major Leagues, it's going to have to be from elsewhere.
7/3/2015 | Fan presents 3,000th hit ball to A-Rod

7/3/2015 | Corbin 'really excited' for first start since 2013

7/3/2015 | Heady play: Ortiz breaks up DP with helmet
There are plenty of reasons batters wear helmets on the basepaths, and Friday night's game between the Astros and Red Sox at Fenway Park provided another prime example -- one that also kept a key inning alive for Boston. In the fifth, Sox slugger David Ortiz found himself advancing to second base after Hanley Ramirez hit a ground ball to third.
7/3/2015 | Showalter keeping rotation plans close to vest
Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman is preparing as if he's making another start for Baltimore, and all indications are that he will. The O's have Miguel Gonzalez listed as Sunday's starter -- which would be Bud Norris' spot -- and Norris was again available out of the bullpen on Friday with nothing imminent on when, or if, he will make another start.
7/3/2015 | Mets squeak by Dodgers in taut pitchers' duel
The Mets still aren't scoring particularly often, but on Friday night, at least, they managed to score enough.

7/3/2015 | Miggy suffers left calf strain vs. Blue Jays
The Tigers stopped their midseason stumble for at least a night with Friday's 8-6 win over the Blue Jays. But they now might have to limp to the All-Star break without Miguel Cabrera. They expect to know more on Saturday, when they get the MRI results back on the left calf strain Cabrera suffered trying to get a running start off first base.
7/3/2015 | Gio outpitches Peavy with help from homer
Left-hander Gio Gonzalez and right-hander Jake Peavy found themselves in a pitchers' duel Friday night at Nationals Park. When it was over, Gonzalez won the battle as the Nationals edged the Giants, 2-1.
7/3/2015 | Reddick, Melvin clear up miscommunication
A's outfielder Josh Reddick said he spoke to manager Bob Melvin about the candid remarks he made in a radio interview Thursday that suggested the front office, specifically general manager Billy Beane, is restricting his playing time against left-handers despite Melvin's desire to keep him in the lineup regardless.
