Refsnyder hits 2-run homer as Red Sox sweep Tigers, 6-2

BOSTON — Rob Refsnyder has learned just how fleeting opportunities are in the major leagues, bouncing around to five different teams in seven seasons. The 31-year-old is already feeling like his sixth stop in Boston is the one he’s been waiting for. Refsnyder hit a two-run homer in the third inning to help the Red Sox post their third series sweep of the season, powering past the Detroit Tigers 6-2 on Wednesday night. In just 10 games, Refsnyder has 11 hits in 27 at-bats with five RBIs.“So many parts of my career early on I wasn’t excited or happy with how I was playing,” he said. “I think the Red Sox really believe you get to the big leagues, you’re not a finished product, you can keep getting better. … They have really been helping me develop still at 31. Lucky to have that.”Jarren Duran and Alex Verdugo each added a two-run double as Boston won for the eighth time in 10 games. Michael Wacha (6-1) pitched six innings, allowing two runs and five hits with seven strikeouts to help the Red Sox improve to a season-high eight games above .500. “He gave us what we needed,” manager Alex Cora said of Wacha, who has held opponents to a .125 batting average with runners in scoring position. Javier Báez hit a two-run homer for the Tigers, who have lost nine of 11. Tarik Skubal (5-5) lasted 4 2/3 innings and allowed six runs on six hits with three walks and five strikeouts. He has lost his last three starts. “You want to salvage a win. We jumped out ahead today and couldn’t finish the game in the positive,” Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said. Báez put the Tigers in front in the first, driving Wacha’s first-pitch fastball into the seats above the Green Monster for his sixth home run of the season. It extended his hitting streak to seven games, one night after he finished a double shy of the cycle. Báez has three homers in his last five games after hitting just one in the previous 45 games. The lead lasted until the third when Duran tied the game, ripping a line drive into the left-field corner that scored Christian Vázquez and Bobby Dalbec. Refsnyder was next and recovered from an 0-2 count to lift a fly ball to left-center that hit off the lip of the Monster. It was originally ruled a double, but then deemed a homer after a quick review by umpires. The drive was Refsnyder’s first homer for Boston since signing as a free agent in December. Detroit had runners at the corners with no outs in the sixth, but Wacha escaped by striking out Harold Castro and Robbie Grossman before Spencer Torkelson lined out to center. Cora said the way the Red Sox have been able to combine timely hitting with good baserunning and solid defense is encouraging. “To be able to put pressure in different ways, not only in the batter’s box, is good to see,” he said. TRAINER’S ROOM Red Sox: Cora said Duran won’t travel with the team for its three-game series next week in Toronto because he is unvaccinated against COVID-19 and under Canadian rules is not permitted to enter the country. WHAT A NIGHT Red Sox rookie Jeter Downs didn’t exactly have the major league debut he wanted at the plate (0 for 4), but it didn’t make the night any less memorable. “That was the coolest thing I’ve ever done in my life. I still can’t believe it happened. I still can’t believe the game’s over. It felt so fast,” Downs said. “It didn’t turn out the way I wanted to, but oh well. The team got the win.” Along with having several family members in attendance, the 25-year-old also got a pregame congratulatory tweet from Hall of Famer Derek Jeter, who met his namesake a few years ago. “Congratulations and good luck… unless you are playing the Yankees,” he wrote in the message. UP NEXT Tigers: RHP Rony Garcia (1-2, 4.97 ERA) will be looking for his second straight victory when he takes the mound to open Detroit’s three-game series at Arizona on Friday. Red Sox: RHP Nick Pivetta (7-5, 3.31) is on the mound as Boston begins a three-game series at Cleveland on Friday. ——— More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP—Sports

Duvall caps Braves' comeback in 9th for 4-3 win over Giants

ATLANTA — Adam Duvall was targeted by his Atlanta teammates for the obligatory postgame dousing with a cooler full of sports drink following his game-winning hit.Duvall said credit was also due to the Braves player who actually scored the winning run.Duvall’s run-scoring single capped Atlanta’s three-run rally in the ninth as the Braves beat the San Francisco Giants 4-3 on Wednesday night. It was Atlanta’s second walk-off win of the series.Duvall’s single up the middle off Tyler Rogers drove in William Contreras, who was on second base following his tying hit and crucial stolen base. Contreras slid across home plate with the winning run as Austin Slater’s throw from center field was slightly up the third-base line.“It’s obviously easier to score from second,” Duvall said. “Having a runner in scoring position was huge in that moment. With that hit, he doesn’t score from first.”It was a timely steal for Contreras, the rookie catcher better known for his power bat that has earned him a share of the playing time with Travis d’Arnaud.The Giants wasted another strong start by Carlos Rodón, who allowed only three hits and one run in seven innings.Jake McGee (1-2) blew a 3-1 lead, built on homers by Mike Yastrzemski and Darin Ruf, by allowing three runs in the ninth. McGee was brought in to close out the lead because Camilo Doval had pitched back-to-back games.Dansby Swanson led off the ninth with a homer off McGee to cut San Francisco’s lead to one run. Marcell Ozuna followed with a single to right field and moved to second on Matt Olson’s fly ball to deep center field. Contreras added a single to left field to drive in Ozuna for a 3-3 tie. Right-hander Tyler Rogers struck out Orlando Arcia as Contreras stole second base. The steal proved to be crucial when Duval followed with the game-ending single.“It turned out to be one of the bigger plays of the game,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said of the steal.Rodón was dominant in his first career appearance against Atlanta, allowing one run with 10 strikeouts and one walk.Rodón outpitched Charlie Morton, who allowed two runs on three hits with 11 strikeouts in seven innings.“Charlie is starting to get in his groove,” Snitker said.Rodón’s bid for his third consecutive start without allowing a run ended in the seventh. He has allowed only a combined seven hits and one run over 21 innings while winning three consecutive starts.Ozuna singled to open the inning for Atlanta’s second hit. Ozuna scored on Olson’s double to the center field wall. Olson’s hit, which trimmed San Francisco’s lead to 2-1, ended Rodón’s string of 21 consecutive scoreless innings.The 29-year-old Rodón gave up a second-inning walk to Contreras, but allowed no other baserunners before Arcia’s bloop single to center field with one out in the fifth gave the Braves their first hit.Tommy La Stella’s run-scoring single off A.J. Minter (3-1) in the ninth drove in Ruf to add to the Giants’ lead.MORTON’S WHIFFSMorton recorded his 21st career game with double-digit strikeouts and second of the season. He recorded 12 strikeouts, but received a no-decision in a 10-4 win over Pittsburgh on June 11.Morton’s 40 strikeouts in June, including nine or more in three consecutive starts, leads the major leagues.CLOSE AGAINThe close game was nothing new for the Giants. Each of the first six games of their seven-game road trip has been decided by no more than two runs.Overall, the Giants are 17-19 in 36 games decided by no more than two runs.TRAINER’S ROOMGiants: SS Brandon Crawford (left knee contusion) did not start but tests Wednesday showed no structural damage after he banged his knee on a slide at home plate Tuesday night. “There is some optimism he can start (Thursday),” said manager Gabe Kapler, who said Crawford was feeling better. … RF Luis González was held out with tightness in his lower back. González was in Kapler’s original lineup before González said his back felt “a little tight” according to Kapler. The manager said he doesn’t believe the injury is reason for “long-term concerns.”Braves: 3B Austin Riley did not start after manager Brian Snitker said “he got banged up a little” in Tuesday night’s game. Riley struck out in the eighth as a pinch-hitter and remained in the game. … OF Eddie Rosario (blurred vision, swollen right retina) and LHP Tyler Matzek (left shoulder inflammation) are moving closer to rehabilitation assignments. A decision on Matzek come come after he is checked by the medical staff on Thursday after throwing on the side on Wednesday.UP NEXTBraves RHP Kyle Wright (7-4, 2.94 ERA) will make his first career start against San Francisco when he faces Giants LHP Alex Wood (5-5, 4.32) as the four-game series concludes on Thursday. Wood began his career with Atlanta and is 3-3 with a 3.89 ERA in seven career starts against the Braves. ———More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP—Sports

Hogs hang on to beat Ole Miss, force 2nd CWS bracket final

OMAHA, Neb. — Zack Morris didn’t get much done as the starter for Arkansas two nights earlier, but what a finisher he was Wednesday.Morris was called on after Mississippi loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the junior left-hander put down the threat to let the Razorbacks hang on for a 3-2 win at the College World Series.The Hogs (46-20) forced a second bracket final against Ole Miss (39-23) on Thursday, with the winner advancing to play Oklahoma in the best-of-three championship round starting Saturday.“Morris did a tremendous job,” Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn said. “He talked to me last night after the game and said, ‘I want the ball again.’ And I said, ‘Just be ready.’ “When he came in, I just said, ‘Hey, man, can you do this?’ And he said, ‘Yes, sir.’ And I just said, ‘OK, here you go. Go get it.’”For eight innings, Arkansas all but shut down an offense that had produced 64 runs in its first seven NCAA Tournament games. Kemp Alderman, who hit a tying homer in the second inning, was the only Ole Miss runner to advance past first base to that point.The Rebels loaded the bases in the ninth after closer Brady Tygart hit two straight batters.Morris, who had given up two runs and was pulled after two-thirds of an inning in the Hogs’ 13-5 loss to Ole Miss on Monday, struck out pinch-hitter Hayden Leatherwood and got TJ McCants to fly out before Justin Bench’s infield single made it a one-run game. Morris then got Jacob Gonzalez to line out to end the game.“Zack’s been clutch for us all year long,” Brady Slavens said. “We all had faith in him. We all had belief in him. He didn’t have the best start that he wanted the other day, but he came out and proved himself tonight.”Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco said he and his players wouldn’t dwell on the loss.“Rather than woe is us,” he said, “how about looking at what a great opportunity we have tomorrow?”With the game tied at 1 in the fifth, Slavens blasted John Gaddis’ second pitch 436 feet to straightaway center into a light breeze. The only other players to homer to dead center since the CWS moved to Charles Schwab Field in 2011 were Florida’s Pete Alonso (2015) and Florida State’s Dylan Busby (2017).“I was just looking for a fastball over the plate,” Slavens said. “Luckily I got it. It might be the farthest one I’ve ever hit. I’m not sure.”The Hogs added a huge insurance run in the eighth. Cayden Wallace sent a ball down the left-field line for a double, getting his hand onto the bag just ahead of second baseman Peyton Chatagnier’s tag attempt. The call was upheld on video review.Michael Turner followed with a base hit that brought Wallace home, and the Hogs loaded the bases before Jack Dougherty struck out Slavens and pinch-hitter Kendall Diggs to end the inning.Arkansas freshman lefty Hagen Smith (7-2) pitched five innings for his longest outing since he went six in an April 30 win over the Rebels. He allowed one run on two hits and four walks, and he struck out eight.“My mental approach today was just throw the ball over the plate, just throw strikes, because I know I’ve got to throw strikes to give us a chance,” Smith said. “If I walk people, I won’t go long or help our team.”Evan Taylor gave up two hits and fanned four in three innings, leaving after Alderman singled leading off the ninth. Gaddis (3-2), pitching for the first time since June 6 and making his first start since April 9, allowed two runs on four hits.The teams traded home runs in the second. Chris Lanzilli went deep for the third time in the CWS and Alderman connected for the Rebels.Lanzilli’s homer barely cleared the fence in left center and bounced back onto the field. The homer was confirmed after a video review.Lanzilli became the first player to hit three homers in a CWS since Michigan’s Jimmy Kerr in 2019.Bianco and Van Horn announced they would start their aces Thursday, with Ole Miss’ Dylan DeLucia (7-2) going against Connor Noland (8-5). “I can’t promise you the outcome of tomorrow’s game, but I can guarantee you we’re not scared, we’re not going to back down,” said Chatagnier, whose team was the last to receive an at-large bid for the NCAA Tournament. “This is nothing new to us.”———More AP college sports: https://apnews.com/hub/college-sports and https://twitter.com/AP—Top25

Rivas slam, Happ and Wisdom homer, Cubs rout Pirates 14-5

PITTSBURGH — Ian Happ and Patrick Wisdom hit two-run homers early and Alfonso Rivas added a grand slam off a position player late as the Chicago Cubs routed the Pittsburgh Pirates 14-5 Wednesday night.Held to a total of two runs in the first two games of the series, Chicago broke out for seven runs in the second inning.The Cubs loaded the bases and Jared Eickhoff (0-1) then hit Rivas with a pitch. Rafael Ortega doubled to score two and Patrick Wisdom singled home two more and brought up Happ.Happ sent a first-pitch fastball to the shrubbery atop the center field wall. The Pittsburgh native continued his torrid June and is now hitting .380 with eight RBIs and three home runs this month. He said being decisive and aggressive has helped fuel his strong month.“Just trying to see something up in the zone,” Happ said. “I got a good pitch to hit there and was able to capitalize. … You need some of those little confidence boosts and then try to ride that out.”Wisdom homered to nearly the same spot in the ballpark in the fourth.Eickhoff made his 2022 debut and allowed 10 runs on 10 hits in 4 1/3 innings. He became the first Pirates pitcher to give up 10 runs in his first outing with the team. He also gave up 10 runs in his first start with the New York Mets in 2021.Chicago starter Keegan Thompson (7-2) worked six innings and allowed four hits. He struck out seven and gave up one run, a solo homer by Diego Castillo in the second.FUN FINISHWith the game out of hand late, Castillo moved from second base to the mound to pitch the ninth inning for Pittsburgh. He loaded the bases with two walks and a hit batter before Rivas hit a 65-mph offering to the right field seats for his first career grand slam.Later in the inning, Chicago manager David Ross let relief pitcher David Robertson go to the plate instead of using his designated hitter. The infielder struck out the pitcher to end the inning.The light moment was appreciated by the 25-43 Cubs, who have been on the other side of a few lopsided scores this season.“His teammates were definitely enjoying that,” Ross said. “It was fun. It’s the first time I’ve laughed in the dugout in a while.”ENCOREAfter seemingly giving up on the game by pitching Castillo, the Pirates didn’t go away quietly in the ninth. Oneil Cruz drove in Castillo with a grounder and now has an RBI in all five games to start his career, including three games this season.“It was the Diego Castillo Show,” Pirates manger Derek Shelton said. “You’re trying to save arms playing at 12:30 tomorrow, you end throwing a position player – and sometimes position players throw it and it becomes a game within itself.”Fellow rookie Bligh Madris hit a three-run double later in the inning after two Chicago errors.ROSTER MOVEPirates: Designated RHP Heath Hembree for assignment to make room for Eickhoff.TRAINER’S ROOMCubs: LHP Drew Smyly (oblique) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday.Pirates: OF Jake Marisnick (left thumb surgery) was moved from the COVID-19 IL to the 60-day IL.

Freeman's homer, 2 RBIs power Dodgers to 6th win over Reds

CINCINNATI — Freddie Freeman homered and drove in two runs and the Los Angeles Dodgers extended their winning streak against Cincinnati this season to six games, beating the Reds 8-4 on Wednesday night.Freeman, who tied a season high with five RBIs in an 8-2 win in series opener on Tuesday, has seven RBI in the series. “We backed up a really good offensive output performance with another one,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Really good at-bats throughout the lineup. We have a superstar player out of the lineup. Up and down the lineup, guys are starting to pick up that void of Mookie.” Dodgers star Mookie Betts is sidelined after cracking a rib in a collision with Cody Bellinger last week.Freeman said he is fully focused on the task at hand, and not ahead to the Dodgers’ three-game series in Atlanta this weekend. He was part of the Braves’ World Series title run last season.“I’ve been around for a long time and concentrate on each game,” Freeman said. “I know what’s going on this weekend, but it doesn’t really affect me.”Albert Almora Jr. hit his fifth homer of the season for Cincinnati, which has lost eight straight over two seasons to the Dodgers at Great American Ball Park.The Dodgers’ .619 winning percentage at Great American Ball Park (39-24) is the second-best of any NL team, behind the Mets’ 36-21 (.632).Dodgers left-hander Tyler Anderson, who took a no-hitter into the ninth inning in his last start, allowed three earned runs on five hits in five innings. “Today was one of those outings where it’s just scrap everything and go into compete mode,” Anderson said. “I felt fine physically. Just didn’t feel real crisp.”Consecutive doubles by Kyle Farmer and Donovan Solano, who made his season and Reds debuts, put Cincinnati ahead 1-0 in the second inning. The Reds scored three runs in the second, one more than Anderson had allowed in 10 of 12 starts this season.Freeman extended his hitting streak to five games with an RBI single in the fifth. The Dodgers grabbed a 4-3 lead in the inning on Chris Taylor’s hit-by-pitch with the bases loaded and Justin Turner’s sacrifice fly. It was Turner’s 21st RBI in 53 games against Cincinnati. Reds starter Luis Castillo, who was 3-0 with a 1.90 ERA in four career starts against the Dodgers, allowed four earned runs in five innings and hit two batters. “Luis didn’t have his best command but he gave us a chance to win against one of the best lineups in the league, If not the best,” said Reds manager David Bell.Taylor threw out Jonathan India at home trying to score the go-ahead run the fifth.“CT made a heck of a throw,” Roberts said. “He’s been building up his arm all year.”Freeman’s seventh homer of the season off Ross Detwiler (0-2) leading off the seventh put the Dodgers in front.“I’ve faced Ross a lot in my career,” Freeman said. “He’s sinker-slider, and I was able to get to a sinker inside right there and get it over the fence.”Trayce Thompson’ who was acquired Monday in a trade with the Tigers, snapped an 0-for-13 streak with a two-run double in the eighth to make the score 7-4. Alex Vesia (1-0) got the win. Ross Detwiler (0-2) took the loss. MOVESThe Dodgers selected the contract of OF Stefen Romero and placed INF Hanser Alberto on the paternity list. In order to make room for Romero on the 40-man roster, INF Edwin Ríos was transferred to the 60-day injured list. The 33-year-old Romero returned to the major leagues for the first time since 2016. TRAINERS ROOMReds: Tyler Naquin (left quad strain) ran the bases on Wednesday. … C Tyler Stephenson (broken right thumb) had his cast removed and has started throwing. UP NEXTDodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw (4-1, 2.08) owns a 5-2 record and 2.30 ERA against the Reds in 13 career starts. He’ll be opposed by 22-year-old rookie right-hander Hunter Greene (3-7, 5.26), who threw 39 pitches at more than 100 mph when he faced the Dodgers in April. ———More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP—Sports

López throws 7 solid innings, Marlins beat Rockies 7-4

MIAMI — Pablo López allowed one unearned run in seven solid innings and the Miami Marlins beat the Colorado Rockies 7-4 Wednesday night.Garrett Cooper, Jazz Chisholm Jr. and Jorge Soler hit home runs for Miami.The Marlins, who played their second home game of the season with the retractable roof open at loanDepot Park, will attempt a sweep of the three-game series Thursday.López (5-3) gave up four hits, walked three and struck out six, ending a winless drought since May 7.“I had some great plays behind me and then the guys came through giving me the support,” López said. “Those are the little things that make you realize it’s a team effort. It hypes you up to go out and compete.”Cooper’s two-run homer capped a four-run third against Chad Kuhl (4-5) and put Miami ahead 4-1. Jon Berti hit an RBI triple and scored on Chisholm’s single before Cooper connected on a drive that cleared the center field wall for his fifth homer.“He got me out on sliders in the first inning, I fell behind and I had a feeling he was coming with a sinker,” Cooper said. “I just put a good swing on it, not try to do too much That’s how you get in trouble.” Chisholm’s two-run homer and Soler’s solo drive off reliever Austin Gomber in the seventh padded Miami’s lead.The early All-Star vote leader among NL second basemen, Chisholm said he welcomed manager Don Mattingly resting him in the series opener Tuesday. Chisholm began the day on a 2-for-16 funk with eight strikeouts.“Sometimes you need that personal day,” Chisholm said. “He gave me a day off to get my mind cleared. Be ready for today and go out and ball.”The huge lead and López’s lengthy outing also allowed Mattingly to rest his high leverage relievers.“Pablo was nice, he was a little rough early,” Mattingly said. “But he got smoother and got better as the game went. It was good to see him get through seven.”Colorado narrowed the gap on Elias Díaz’s three-run homer off Louis Head in the ninth.Kuhl was lifted after five innings. The right-hander allowed six hits, walked two and struck out three. He has lost five of his last six decisions after going 3-0 in April.ESCAPE ARTISTColorado threatened in the sixth after Rodgers led off with a triple. But López struck out Charlie Blackmon and C.J. Cron and retired Ryan McMahon on a flyout.“With the heart of the order coming up, that was a little frustrating,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. “Their guy got us. We couldn’t make contact so that’s frustrating for sure. You need to do a little better job of situational hitting.”SMALL SAMPLEThe Marlins are 1-1 in the two games played with the roof open. López also was the starter in the previous game not requiring the roof and had a no decision in Miami’s 2-1 loss against Milwaukee May 13.TRAINER’S ROOMRockies: LHP Ty Blach (left wrist sprain) is scheduled to make rehab appearances with Triple-A Albuquerque Wednesday and Saturday. … Black said INF-OF Kris Bryant (lower back strain) felt good after his rehab game with Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday.
