BOSTON (AP) All those long rehab days finally paid off Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia.

The 2008 AL MVP made his season debut Saturday after October knee surgery, helping the Red Sox rally for an 8-6 victory over the Atlanta Braves.

"There's been a lot of tough days," Pedroia said. "Today was great to be out there and play."


Cubs place Darvish on DL due to triceps

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs placed Yu Darvish on the 10-day disabled list Saturday with right triceps tendinitis, continuing a rough season for the right-hander.

Nola flirts with no-no as Phils top Jays

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Another stellar performance from their ace and a big homer from their best pinch-hitter have lifted the Philadelphia Phillies to heights they haven't reached in seven years.

Aaron Nola took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, Nick Williams hit his third pinch-hit homer of the year in the eighth and the Phillies moved into first in the NL East Saturday with a 2-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.


Indians reliever Miller goes back on DL

CLEVELAND (AP) Cleveland Indians reliever Andrew Miller is back on the 10-day disabled list, this time with inflammation in his right knee, and there's no timetable for his return.

Reynolds HR in 9th lifts Nats by Marlins

MIAMI (AP) When Bryce Harper struck out in the first inning, he stomped back to the dugout and took three swings at the bat rack , shattering his bat and producing a trio of angry thuds that reverberated in the stands.

The Washington Nationals' mood didn't improve much until the eighth, when Wilmer Difo hit a game-tying homer off the foul pole, and they rallied to beat the Miami Marlins for the 10th consecutive time Saturday, 4-1.


A's Mengden has 2-hitter, blanks Arizona

Choo's HR gets Rangers past Royals in 10

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Bartolo Colon didn't make history on Saturday for the Texas Rangers, but his teammate Shin-Soo Choo did.

Yankees activate 1B Bird, Torreyes down

NEW YORK (AP) In a somewhat surprising move, the New York Yankees sent reserve infielder Ronald Torreyes to the minors to clear a roster spot for first baseman Greg Bird.

The diminutive and popular Torreyes, batting .339 in a backup role, was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after Friday night's victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Bird was reinstated from the disabled list Saturday and was in the starting lineup, batting sixth and playing first base. He had been sidelined since having right ankle surgery on March 27.
