A look at what’s happening around the majors today:
Texas has won seven in a row Youth Sam Darnold Jersey , and things got a little testy Saturday during a 9-6 victory at Target Field. Jurickson Profar tied a Rangers record when he was hit by pitches three times. Profar stole second base in the fourth inning with a 9-2 lead – his next at-bat, Minnesota reliever Addison Reed threw three inside fastballs, finally hitting him in the leg.
Said Texas manager Jeff Banister: ”I thought the intent there was excessive, especially they tried to dial him up three different times.”
Said Twins manager Paul Molitor: ”The thought process between the unwritten rules of the game is not clearly defined. What I might think and what he might think might be different things. I was surprised that (Profar) ran with the score the way it was, when he did. And getting hit there was something that Banister felt wasn’t appropriate.”
A GRAND TIME
The last-place Reds have won six straight Dolphins Game Jerseys , boosted by a bunch of grand slams. Cincinnati has hit three slams in five days – Anthony DeSclafani connected Saturday against the Cubs, becoming the first Reds pitcher to hit a slam since Bob Purkey in 1959. Cincinnati leads the majors with seven slams this season.
Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and the Yankees have totaled just one run in dropping the first two of a three-game series at Tampa Bay. New York has the best record in the big leagues at 50-24 and is the only team in the majors that hasn’t lost more than two straight games this year. This is the latest the Yankees have gone into a season without losing three in a row since August 1954.
Bryce Harper is hitting just .149 in June, striking out 24 times in 67 at-bats. The Nationals slugger has one home run and five RBIs in 19 games this month. He has tried to bunt to beat the shift the last two days against Philadelphia – he bunted foul before fanning Friday, then was thrown out Saturday by pitcher Aaron Nola.
Braves closer Arodys Vizcaino was unavailable Saturday due to a sore right shoulder. He felt more discomfort while throwing in the outfield before the game against Baltimore. Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said he hopes Vizcaino feels better Oliver Ekman-Larsson Jersey , but the team could soon face a decision on placing the right-hander on the DL.
Defensive end Owa Odighizuwa is getting an opportunity to resume his NFL career by signing a one year-contract with the Buffalo Bills.
Odighizuwa missed all of last season after being cut by New York Giants in August shortly after the NFL suspended him for four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Listed at 6-foot-4 and 266 pounds, he was selected by New York in the third-round of the 2015 draft out of UCLA. Odighizuwa played 18 games over two seasons with New York in a backup role and credited with four tackles on defense and two more on special teams.
The signing on Thursday comes six days before the NFL's free agency period opens.
