Money quote from Maddon: "“They showed why they went to the World Series last year. We showed why we’re not ready yet.”

Chef Curry in center field?

NBA MVP Stephen Curry reportedly is planning to attend tonight's game between the Braves and Giants, and Giants manager Bruce Bochy joked pregame that he could play Curry in center. If his 3-point shooting (.440 career rate) translates to batting, Ted Williams could have company.

Two shots for Tulo

Troy Tulowitzki smacked a second solo HR to left in the top of the 3rd, this time on a 93 mph fastball. Tulo homered in the top of the 1st on a 94 mph fastball. Perhaps Cole Hamels should avoid the hard ball with Troy? It's Tulo 2, Phillies 0 in Philly. Follow live

Not a good start for Strasburg

Tulo puts Colorado on the board early

Troy Tulowitzki caught all of Cole Hamels' 94 mph fastball in the top of the 1st and sent it to left on a one-way trip. It was Tulo's third HR on the season as the Rockies take a 1-0 lead after one. Follow live

Royals rally to reclaim AL Central lead

Lorenzo Cain delivered a game-winning, 8th-inning double in the Royals' 8-4 win over the Cubs. Kansas City moved half a game ahead of the Twins, who can get even with a win tonight vs. the Blue Jays. Box score
