Miami Hands Colorado 2nd Straight Loss – MLB Roundup
UNDATED (AP) — Baseball's worst team in 2013 has opened the new season by knocking off the New York Yankees.
The Astros scored six times against CC Sabathia (suh-BATH'-ee-uh) over the first two innings of a 6-2 win against the Bombers in Houston. Jesus Guzman (GOOZ'-mahn) hit a two-run homer in the Astros' four-run first, one inning before L.J. Hoes went deep against Sabathia.
Jose Altuve (al-TOO'-vay) added a pair of RBI singles and Dexter Fowler doubled twice to back Scott Feldman, who held the Yanks to two hits over 6 2/3 shutout innings.
Checking out the rest of the major league slate:
- Freddie Freeman hit a pair of solo home runs and Jason Heyward added a two-run shot in Atlanta's 5-2 victory at Milwaukee. Alex Wood served up a homer by Carlos Gomez on his first pitch before holding the Brewers to four more hits over seven innings.
- Drew Hutchison won his first start in almost two years by limiting Tampa Bay to three hits over 5 1/3 shutout innings and leading Toronto's 4-2 win over the Rays. Adam Lind put the Blue Jays up 3-0 on a three-run homer in the first off Alex Cobb.
- Texas beat Philadelphia 3-2 on Adrian Beltre's RBI single in the bottom of the ninth. Shin-Soo Choo reached base four times and scored the tying and winning runs.
- A.J. Pollock went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in Arizona's 5-4 win over San Francisco. Wade Miley and the Diamondbacks' bullpen didn't allow a run following Brandon Belt's three-run blast in the top of the first.
- Yasiel Puig (YAH'-see-ul pweeg) hit a two-run homer and the Los Angeles Dodgers' bullpen tossed four shutout innings to beat San Diego 3-2. Juan Uribe (yoo-REE'-bay) had three of the Dodgers' seven hits.
- Nathan Eovaldi (ee-VAWL'-dee) pitched six innings and Miami made the most of five hits to beat Colorado for the second straight night, 4-3. Eovaldi allowed two runs and six hits while striking out six after Jose Fernandez limited the Rockies to one run in the season opener.
- Brad Miller homered twice and had three RBI's in Seattle's 8-3 pounding of the Angels in Anaheim. Winning pitcher Erasmo Ramirez struck out six and allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings.
- Cleveland's game at Oakland has been postponed by rain and will be made up in a day-night doubleheader Wednesday. It was the first rainout in Oakland since May 1998.
UNDATED (AP) — One former New York Met is going to be sidelined at least two weeks, while a current Met could be done for the year. Toronto shortstop Jose Reyes and Mets closer Bobby Parnell have landed on the disabled list just a day after playing on opening day.
Reyes has been shelved after just one at-bat after he pulled a hamstring muscle running the bases. An MRI Tuesday showed Reyes has mild inflammation of the hamstring. He will rest the leg for several days.
Parnell might need surgery after being diagnosed with a partially torn elbow ligament. He complained of tightness in his right elbow after throwing 25 pitches in Monday's game.
Also in the majors on Tuesday:
- Dodgers manager Don Mattingly says reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw probably won't be ready to come off the disabled list when he's eligible to be activated on April 14. Kershaw was placed on the DL on Sunday with a swollen muscle in his left upper back.
- Rangers ace Yu Darvish threw an 86-pitch bullpen session and could return to the rotation in the next week. He missed the opening-day start after coming up with a stiff neck about two weeks ago in spring training.
- Los Angeles Angels hitting coach Don Baylor had surgery on his broken right leg, a day after getting hurt while catching the ceremonial first pitch on opening day.
- The World Series-champion Boston Red Sox stopped by the White House for a visit with President Barack Obama. The president praised the Sox for their win last fall and hailed them as a symbol of their city's determined response to the bombing at last year's Boston Marathon.
