(TSX / STATS) -- CLEVELAND -- The bunt was not particularly well-placed, but it was still effective.

"Sometimes if you get a bunt down, something good happens just because you got it down," Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said.

A throwing error by first baseman Brock Holt on a bunted ball in the bottom of the ninth inning allowed the winning run to score as the Indians beat the Boston Red Sox 5-4 Monday night at Progressive Field.


Kershaw goes extra IP in simulated game

(TSX / STATS) -- Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw went the extra mile during his scheduled three-inning simulated game on Monday.

How so? Well, the three-time Cy Young Award winner tacked on a fourth inning as he attempts to return from a strained lower back that landed him on the 10-day disabled list July 24.


Kinsler fined $10K for ripping umpire

(TSX / STATS) -- Detroit Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler was fined $10,000 for his rant about umpire Angel Hernandez that sparked a one-day league-wide protest by the umps, ESPN's Buster Olney reported Monday.

Kinsler was not suspended for arguing balls and strikes before getting ejected in last Monday night's game against the Texas Rangers or for his comments about Hernandez the next day.

Better put, Beltre loves playing against the Angels.


Twins slugger Sano placed on DL

(TSX / STATS) -- The Minnesota Twins placed infielder Miguel Sano on the 10-day disabled list Monday with a left shin stress reaction.

Sano fouled a ball off his shin Friday night in the same game that he hit two home runs in a 10-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. He had to leave the game in the seventh inning because of soreness in the shin. The move is retroactive to Sunday.


Arizona tops Mets on Pollock HR in 10th

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- Despite being separated by 12 games in the standings, the Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Mets entered Monday both in desperate need of a win and some good fortune.

The Diamondbacks got what they needed, and the Mets didn't, in fashions that symbolize why Arizona occupies a National League wild-card spot and New York is destined for a high draft pick next June.


Jones goes 4 for 4 with 2 HRs in O's win

(TSX / STATS) -- BALTIMORE -- When the Baltimore Orioles get good starting pitching and power together, they usually find success. That formula worked again Monday night.

Adam Jones homered twice as part of a four-hit night, and Jonathan Schoop and Welington Castillo also went deep as the Orioles defeated the Oakland A's 7-3.


Stratton sharp as Giants blank Brewers

(TSX / STATS) -- SAN FRANCISCO -- Chris Stratton has simple plans for his 27th birthday on Tuesday. Maybe just a nice lunch with his wife and infant son.

As for his first present, the Giants rookie right-hander got exactly what he wanted from manager Bruce Bochy on Monday night: a secure spot in the San Francisco rotation moving forward.


Twins hit 4 HRs, split DH with White Sox

(TSX / STATS) -- CHICAGO -- Dillon Gee isn't accustomed to starting for Minnesota. However, once the Twins' surging offense gave him plenty of support, the right-hander felt right at home.

Gee allowed two hits in six innings, and Jorge Polanco, Brian Dozier, Byron Buxton and Jason Castro homered as the Twins picked up a doubleheader split against the Chicago White Sox with a 10-2 win on Monday night.
