CLEVELAND (AP) — Guardians reliever James Karinchak is back with Cleveland after being sidelined all season with a shoulder strain suffered during spring training.
Karinchak was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Sunday when the Guardians placed left-hander Anthony Gose on the 15-day injured list with a triceps strain he apparently sustained a day earlier.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cleveland manager Terry Francona couldn't contain his smile after his Guardians defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 in 10 innings Friday night.
The Guardians had only one hit after the fourth inning and what could have been two potentially-fatal errors, but they also got clutch pitching from their bullpen and a couple of heads up plays on defense for their season-best fifth straight win.
CLEVELAND (AP) — José Ramírez hit his second grand slam of the season in an 11-1 win, then had an RBI double in a 2-1 victory as the Cleveland Guardians swept a doubleheader from the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday.
Toronto — A pair of Tigers outfielders, one a prized prospect, and another a well-known but disappointing presence in Detroit the past two seasons, were disciplined Saturday in separate incidents with Triple A Toledo manager Lloyd McClendon.
