OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Seattle Mariners have placed ace James Paxton on the disabled list with a forearm bruise, one day after the left-hander was struck by a line drive.

Paxton was facing the third batter in the first inning Tuesday night when Jed Lowrie lined a ball back up the middle, hitting the pitcher hard. Paxton walked toward second base in obvious pain as a team trainer and manager Scott Servais rushed onto the field.

Paxton was replaced by Felix Hernandez.

Surging Cardinals aim to extend run to 8

For the St. Louis Cardinals, it was another night of gaining ground in two races. For the Washington Nationals, it was another night where opportunity slipped away, much like their season.

St. Louis' 6-4 win over the Nationals Tuesday night gave the Cardinals a season-high seven-game winning streak, putting them 10 games over .500 for the first time all year at 65-55. Along with losses by the Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies, the Cardinals pulled within four games of Chicago for first place in the National League Central and within a single game of the Phillies for the second wild-card spot.


A's vie to sweep key series with Seattle

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Seattle Mariners will try to capitalize on two pieces of good news even in defeat Tuesday night when they wrap up a key three-game series against the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday afternoon.

Veterans Mike Leake (8-7, 4.11 ERA) of the Mariners and Brett Anderson (2-3, 4.53) of the A's are scheduled to duel in the series finale after Oakland used one-run wins Monday and Tuesday to increase their 1 1/2-game lead over Seattle to 3 1/2 in the American League wild-card race. The A's also crept to within one game of Houston for the AL West lead.

DETROIT (AP) Jose Abreu and Matt Davidson each hit two-run home runs and the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 6-5 on Wednesday to win the three-game series.

Acuna homers in 5th in row, 3rd leadoff

ATLANTA (AP) Ronald Acuna Jr. had a case of jitters before he stepped in the batter's box for the first time Tuesday night.

He had homered in the leadoff spot twice in a doubleheader the day before, so even Acuna wondered if it could happen again.

Puig took a swing at Giants catcher Nick Hundley during a benches-clearing scrap in the seventh inning, then Alen Hanson hit an RBI single in the ninth to lift San Francisco over the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 on Tuesday night.


Tribe P Bauer on DL with stress fracture

CINCINNATI (AP) The Cleveland Indians lost one of their best pitchers Tuesday when they placed right-hander Trevor Bauer on the 10-day disabled list with a small stress fracture in his right leg.

Cleveland is in complete control in the AL Central, leading second-place Minnesota by 12 1/2 games coming into the day. But any lingering issue with Bauer could hurt its chances of advancing in the playoffs.
