Caught Looking: A visual guide to Tuesday night's scores and notes
By JOHN DORN
We're still in the heart of MLB trade season as the Friday deadline is fast approaching, setting up for plenty of interesting drama to go along with the matchups on the diamond. Monday night gave us the stunning Troy Tulowitzki deal, trading places with Jose Reyes, and some more, lower-profile deals rolled through on Tuesday.
Ben Zobrist was finally dealt from Oakland, ending up in Kansas City. The Angels restocked their outfield by acquiring David Murphy and David DeJesus, while the Nationals went out and nabbed Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon.
On the field, we had some doozies, including the Yankees dropping three touchdowns on Texas and Noah Syndergaard taking a perfect game bid into the seventh inning for the Mets. Let's review.
Yankees 21, Rangers 5
Yeah, you're reading that score right. Twenty-one runs from the Yankees in Texas on Tuesday -- and that was after they fell behind by five in the first inning. Runs. All of the runs.
Mets 4, Padres 0
The Mets have quietly made some decent moves, and sit just one game back of the Nationals for the division lead. Backed by 22-year-old Noah Syndergaard's eight shutout, two-hit innings, the Padres didn't stand a chance.
Astros 10, Angels 5
Huge series in Houston this week, as the Astros and Angels battle it out for first place in the AL West. Houston got the better of LA on Tuesday, pushing them into a first-place tie for now.
Athletics 2, Dodgers 0
The Dodgers called on Paul Pierce to throw out the first pitch on Tuesday, and his performance on the mound was an omen. The new Clippers acquisition threw the ball about 50 feet, and LA couldn't get a run across on Sonny Gray, who threw a complete game shutout.
White Sox 9, Red Sox 4
A poor outing from the Red Sox against their Sox counterparts, but the evening started off special, when Pedro Martinez had his No. 45 retired forever. Big Papi then took a selfie.
Pirates 8, Twins 7
When you smack the go-ahead home run in the ninth on the road, you're allowed to flip your bat. Flip away, Jung-ho Kang.
Royals 2, Indians 1
We had a pitchers duel over in Cleveland, and the gem above helped the Royals' cause. Omar Infante to Alcides Escobar for your everyday 4-6-3 putout.
Rays 10, Tigers 2
After much contest, Evan Longoria was eventually out out on a routine comebacker to former teammate David Price. Price could've used some more of those, though -- he allowed five runs on seven hits over his six innings.
- Orioles 7, Braves 3
- Phillies 3, Blue Jays 2
- Marlins 4, Nationals 1
- Rockies 7, Cubs 2
- Reds 4, Cardinals 0
- Diamondbacks 8, Mariners 4
- Brewers 5, Giants 2
