David Ortiz just missed going yard on Tuesday, so his no-doubter for 397 feet in the 4th didn't just avenge an out, it gives the Red Sox a 3-2 lead.

Yankees put A-Rod on 15-day DL

Alex Rodriguez was placed on the DL with a strained right hamstring he suffered while running to first base Tuesday. He's hitting .194 with five HRs and 12 RBIs this season.

Catcher James McCann on Tigers being shut out by Corey Kluber: "We had two opportunities to score and he shut us down." Asked about Indians beating up on Tigers this season, McCann responded: "They've obviously had our number the first five games. We'll see how the next 13 go."

Asked about Justin Upton's second-inning baserunning gaffe and the team's struggles as a whole in that area this season, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus responded: "This game is played by humans, not by robots." Ausmus said that third-base coach Dave Clark talked to Upton after the play. "Humans make mistakes and that was a mistake."

On a cold night, Travis Shaw getting hit by a 93 MPH Carlos Rodon fastball on an unprotected right arm does more than sting, it's cause for concern for a Red Sox roster down to two bench players with Hanley Ramirez scratched for "flu-like symptoms."

One key moment from tonight's 4-0 shutout loss to the Cleveland Indians was a fourth-inning baserunning miscue by Tigers OF Justin Upton, who failed to go home from third with James McCann grounding into double play. Upton admitted his mistake after the game and said it cost the club a run. "I just got caught being too cautious...you can't be too cautious in that situation."

CC Sabathia has pitched excellent tonight. With the last place Yankees trying to break their six-game losing streak, Sabathia has thrown six scoreless innings as the Yankees lead 3-0 in the seventh against the Orioles.

The Red Sox just scored their third run of the season against a left-handed starting pitcher, and might get their MLB-worst OPS vs southpaw starters north of .400.

Before the game, Red Sox manager John Farrell said he had one thing he wanted from struggling veteran Clay Buchholz on the mound: "Just pitch like he's capable, attack the strike zone."

The night began as a promising one for Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez, who looked sharp through the first three innings. However, his outing really devolved in the fourth, when the Indians carved out a 4-nothing lead. Perhaps the most difficult pitcher to figure out in DET's rotation. Looks great when he's locked in, but so erratic that it's anyone's guess on a given night which way it's going to go.
