Fehr: Up to players to decide on probe

CLEVELAND (AP) Josh Hamilton has played in two World Series, appeared in five All-Star Games and won a Most Valuable Player Award.

Yet he still had to fight off nerves in his return to the majors Monday.

"It was good to get the first at-bat out of the way, I was a little nervous up there," Hamilton said after the Rangers sixth straight win, a 10-8 victory over the Cleveland Indians. "After that, second at-bat I was feeling pretty good. It was just good to be out there. It was good to feel the energy in the dugout."


Yankees score 8 in 1st, beat Royals 14-1

NEW YORK (AP) Brett Gardner got a little silly after hitting the Yankees' third homer of the first inning, enthusiastically high-fiving his teammates as if he were trying to slap away the memory of a lost weekend of baseball.

A few big hits did the job just fine.


Orioles deal Astros' Keuchel first loss

BALTIMORE (AP) With the exception of two mighty swings, the Baltimore Orioles did very little offensively against Dallas Keuchel.

Baltimore didn't strand a runner and never got one in scoring position. In six of eight innings, the Orioles sent only three batters to the plate.


Colon beats Phillies 6-3 for seventh win

NEW YORK (AP) Bartolo Colon kept his helmet on this time.

A day after his 42nd birthday, the rotund pitcher moved into a tie for the major league lead with his seventh win and singled for his second hit in a decade. The New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-3 Monday to stop a three-game losing streak.


Matusz banned 8 games over substance

BALTIMORE (AP) Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz was suspended for eight games by Major League Baseball on Monday for having a foreign substance on his arm during a game in Miami.

Matusz immediately appealed and was in uniform for Baltimore's game against the Houston Astros on Monday afternoon. He will continue to pitch until his appeal is heard.


Pujols' hit off Kimbrel lifts Angels

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) It's a no-win situation: pitch to reigning AL MVP Mike Trout with the potential winning run at third base and two out in the ninth inning, or walk him intentionally and try your luck with three-time NL MVP Albert Pujols.

That was the predicament San Diego Padres manager Bud Black faced. He had All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel pitch to Pujols, and the nine-time All-Star delivered a broken-bat RBI single with the bases loaded to give the Los Angeles Angels a 4-3 victory on Monday night.


Hahn 4-hits Tigers, A's win third in row

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Jesse Hahn would steal a glance up at the scoreboard between innings to see which hitter was up next, not to follow his innings or how far he had pitched into the game. He could tell it was a special day.

When manager Bob Melvin let him go out for the ninth, Hahn noticed.


Rockies extend Reds' losing streak to 9

CINCINNATI (AP) The Reds haven't lost so many games in a row since Jack McKeon was in charge. And that was six managers ago.

Cincinnati dropped its ninth in a row on Monday in its longest losing streak in 17 years. Nolan Arenado had three hits, homered and drove in the tiebreaking run with a sacrifice fly off Aroldis Chapman in the ninth inning, leading the Colorado Rockies to a 5-4 win.


Dodgers hit 3 HRs in 8th, beat Braves

LOS ANGELES (AP) Andre Ethier made it clear in spring training: He wanted to be an everyday player.

Because of injuries, he's gotten his wish and the veteran outfielder is proving a valuable offensive commodity. His solo homer put the Los Angeles Dodgers ahead for good in the eighth inning, rallying them to a 6-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday night.


Hutchison goes distance in Jays' 5-0 win

TORONTO (AP) Drew Hutchison shook off an illness, and then pitched a gem.

Hutchison tossed a four-hitter, Justin Smoak and Josh Donaldson homered and the Toronto Blue Jays beat Chicago White Sox 5-0 on Monday night.
