Yahoo - Wed, 2014-04-16 22:10

Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke realizes one victory doesn't necessarily end the St. Louis Cardinals' recent dominance over the Brewers. Wily Peralta allowed one run in 6 1-3 innings, and the Brewers beat the Cardinals 5-1 Wednesday to avoid a series sweep. The Cardinals won last year's season series 14-5. ''He was a show-stopper today,'' Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy said.

The Baltimore Orioles appear to be getting the pitching they so desperately need to be contenders in the AL East. Or maybe they just caught the Tampa Bay Rays at exactly the right time. Miguel Gonzalez and two relievers combined on a six-hitter, and the Orioles capitalized on two infield singles by Adam Jones in a 3-0 victory Wednesday. Nick Markakis also had two hits for the Orioles, who outscored the Rays 10-1 in the rain-abbreviated, two-game series.

Who's on first? Yankees short on first basemen (Yahoo Sports)

Yahoo - Wed, 2014-04-16 17:11

For the New York Yankees, it's not a joke. Since Mark Teixiera went on the disabled list April 5 with a strained right hamstring, the $200 million Bronx Bombers have cobbled together a platoon at first base.
