They appreciated another dominant performance by the left-handed ace.

Judge hits No. 45 as Yankees sweep Twins

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- The personal milestones were nice, and sweeping the Minnesota Twins to widen their lead in the American League wild-card race also was enjoyable for the New York Yankees on Wednesday.

(TSX / STATS) -- SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco Giants sent general manager Bobby Evans to Japan this week to scout right-hander Shohei Otani, a potential 2018 Major League Baseball import.

Cards rout Reds, move within 2.5 of WC

(TSX / STATS) -- CINCINNATI -- Despite the increasing pressures of a pennant race, St. Louis Cardinals rookie right-hander Luke Weaver is gaining confidence with each start.
