Chicago White Sox infielder Todd Frazier (flu) is out of the starting lineup again on Wednesday versus the New York Yankees.

The Cubs came from 6-2 down to get past the Milwaukee Brewers 9-7 and back to winning ways on Tuesday.

The White Sox are 16-34 in their last 50 road games versus a right-handed starter, and 2-5 in their last seven games versus a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30. The Yankees started 1-4 but have won nine of 10 since.

HOUSTON - Albert Pujols hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the fifth inning to give Los Angeles a victory over Houston and snap a six-game skid. "You can look at it that we're not hitting well with runners in scoring position or you can look at it like we've been getting a lot of runners on, and we've been patient, and we've taken our walks and the guys have worked pitchers really hard".

The Blue Jays' slump continued as ace Marcus Stroman struggled in a home start against the Red Sox. NY got five hits the first time through the order, all on line drives to the outfield. Stroman now owns a 4.05 ERA this season as Toronto fell to 2-11. Holland fell to 1-7 against the Yankees by allowing seven runs (six earned) and 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings. It forced manager Joe Girardi to bring in Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman.

Authorities say a former National Football League player was driving a truck that struck and killed his 3-year-daughter in the driveway of their suburban Phoenix home. "I think I'm a little more mature now to go out there and know my game plan and know what I'm going to try to do".

Betts, who was 3 for 5 and got the Red Sox rolling with an RBI single in the third inning, hit a drive into the second deck to lead off the seventh.

Holliday hit a 459-foot, three-run homer off Derek Holland (1-2) over the visitor's bullpen and into the left-center field bleachers.

In Spicer's attempts to walk back his misguided remarks, he referred to the concentration camps as " Holocaust centers ". And in Spicer's case, it may only get worse: McCarthy is hosting " SNL " on May 13.


Headley has a.395 batting average and the Yankees take an eight-game winning streak into their Tuesday meeting with the White Sox. The left-hander threw 88 pitches and helped the Yankees win eight straight for the first time since June 8-18, 2012.

Behind blasts from Ryan Braun (who went 3-for-4), Jett Bandy and Eric Thames, the Brewers increased their total to 25 home runs in 14 games and pulled ahead of the New York Mets into the National League lead in the category.

Garcia went 1-3 tonight also and hit a solo shot in the third inning.

Per Baseball Savant, that home run traveled for 448 ft with an exit velocity of 115.5 mph.

Tanaka retired the White Sox in order in the third but allowed a run in the fourth.

CARDINALS 2, PIRATES 1: Lance Lynn pitched seven shutout innings, Kolten Wong homered and the Cardinals stopped a three-game losing streak by defeating Pittsburgh at St. Louis.

Yankees: Girardi said C Gary Sanchez (right biceps strain) felt good after playing catch for the first time since going on the DL on April 8. NY is also 5-1 in Tanaka's last six starts in game three of a series, and 6-0 in Tanaka's last six starts versus the American League Central.

"Right now we're just working on trying to gain that confidence at the plate, because right now I don't feel it", Abreu said through an interpreter on Tuesday.
