Morning Rewind, 8/18: Sometimes, all you need is a groundout

By JOHN DORN

When you ground out to the shortstop and your entire team runs onto the field just to hit you and push you around, you're either the happiest or most despondent man in baseball. Luckily for Chase Headley, the good times are rolling again in the Bronx.

With the bases loaded in the 10th in a tie game, Headley rolled one over to shortstop Eduardo Nunez, who had trouble handling it and eventually slung a token throw over to first base for an out. Except the winning run crossed home plate about a second earlier. Yankees win, Yankees win.

Yankees 8, Twins 7

Around the League

Diamondbacks 4, Pirates 1
Two unusual first-inning runs against Gerrit Cole were all the D-Backs needed in this one. Cole allowed four on nine hits over 6.2 innings in a rare pedestrian start for him.

Orioles 4, A's 2
The O's are doing everything they can to remain locked into this playoff race, and a four-game sweep of the lowly A's now has them a half-game over the Angels for the second Wild Card.

Indians 8, Red Sox 2
Not a good day for Matt Barnes' across the sports world. First the NBA one gets publicly outed as a faux Rihanna suitor, and later, the MLB Matt Barnes gets shelled for six runs over five innings in a spot start for the Red Sox. Which would you rather be?

Rangers 4, Mariners 3

Adrian Beltre logs 3 hits, then wins it for the Rangers with a #walkoff walk.

After a walk-off win, pulling the Rangers to within a game of the AL Wild Card, perhaps it's okay to touch Adrian Beltre's head. Just once. Each.

Cardinals 2, Giants 1
More productive, game-winning outs in St. Louis, as Mark Reynolds grounded into a go-ahead force out in the bottom of the eighth, improving the Cards to a league-best 76-42.

Marlins 6, Brewers 2
Miami's sitting at 70 losses already on the season, but rookie Justin Nicolino was able to stave off Milwaukee, allowing two runs over 6.2 innings for the win.

Rays 9, Astros 2
Former Ray Scott Kazmir gave up a four spot in the opening frame, and it was all Tampa Bay needed to put down the Astros in Houston.

Angels 2, White Sox 1


C.J. Cron connected on a tie-breaking solo shot in the seventh, and Los Angeles was able to preserve the lead, remaining a half-game behind the Orioles in the WIld Card hunt.

Padres 5, Braves 3
After two big league starts, Colin Rea is 2-0 for San Diego. Not too shabby for a 24-year-old who put up a 4.39 ERA and 1.538 WHIP over six Triple-A starts prior to being called up.
