MILWAUKEE (AP) — Homer Bailey, who tossed his second career no-hitter in his last outing, didn’t see the end of the sixth inning last night. The Milwaukee Brewers roughed up the Cincinnati hurler with 10 hits and four runs in five and two-thirds as they beat the Reds 4-3 in a game that ended with Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez robbing Joey Votto of a two-run home run with a game-saving catch over the wall.
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Bartolo Colon (bar-TOH’-loh koh-LOHN’) allowed one run over seven innings and the Oakland Athletics won for the ninth time in their past 12 games, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1. The 40-year-old Colon improved to 12-3, with the loss dropping the Pirates a half-game back of idle St. Louis in the NL Central race.
CLEVELAND (AP)— The Detroit Tigers own a three and a-half game lead in the AL Central after winning three of four in their wraparound weekend series in Cleveland. Victor Martinez delivered a two-run double in the Tigers’ 4-2 win over the Tribe in 10 innings. Tigers starter Max Scherzer went seven innings, but wasn’t involved in the decision and remains 13-0.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — There’s a reason why Ryan Howard was limping around the field over the weekend. The Philadelphia Phillies’ slugger needs surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee and will miss at least six to eight weeks.
LOS ANGELES (AP)— The Los Angeles Lakers are moving ahead in the wake of free agent center Dwight Howard’s agreement to sign with the Houston Rockets. The Lakers signed 31-year-old Chris Kaman, who had some of his best seasons in Los Angeles with the Clippers, to a one-year deal worth a reported $3.2 million.
