Athletics closer Tyler Clippard blows save, earns loss Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:36 pm ET) Athletics closer Tyler Clippard had a Sunday to forget in Oakland's 7-6 loss to the Astros. Clippard came on with a 6-5 lead in the eighth, but quickly saw issues as he allowed the first two batters he faced to reach safely in the ninth.

After striking out George Springer, Clippard intentionally walked Jed Lowrie to get to Evan Gattis. But Clippard gave up a huge double to center field, over Sam Fuld's head, to score two and give Houston the lead. 

The Astros finished things off in the bottom half of the ninth to saddle Clippard with his second loss of the year. He now boasts a 3.24 ERA in 8 1/3 innings of work.


Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz picks up no decision Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:31 pm ET) Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz allowed five runs, three earned, on six hits in five innings of work in Oakland's 7-6 loss to the Astros Sunday.

Pomeranz's issues began in the third when the first two batters of the inning reached safely before he walks Jed Lowrie to load the bases for Evan Gattis, who then singled to right to bring home two runs. Colby Rasmus then singled to right to bring home one more run in the inning.

The struggles continued in the fourth when Jake Marisnick ripped a two-run shot over the left center field wall, scoring Jason Castro. He would last one more inning before getting the hook.

Pomeranz, who remains 1-2 on the year, now boasts a 4.50 ERA in 22 innings. He will look to get back on track Saturday against the Rangers.

(7:26 pm ET) The Padres got a solo home run each from Derek Norris and Alexi Amarista in Sunday's 3-1 victory over the Dodgers. 

Amarista hit a solo shot in the third inning and Norris homered in the seventh. It was both Norris and Amarista's first home run of the season. 

Norris finished the game 2 of 3 with two RBI. In the fourth inning, Norris hit an RBI double that scored Matt Kemp. Norris is now hitting .324/.342/.493.

Amarista finished the game 1 of 3 and is hitting .227/.370/.364.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(7:25 pm ET) Astros pitcher Asher Wojciechowski allowed five runs on five hits in four innings of work in Houston's 7-6 win over the Athletics Sunday.

Wojciechowski ran into issues in the second inning when Josh Reddick ripped a triple over the center fielder's head to bring home a run. Then, Brett Lawrie chipped in a sacrifice fly to score Reddick. His struggles continued into the fourth inning when he allowed runners on second and third with two out for Lawrie, who singled to center to bring home two more runs. Craig Gentry added the final run with an RBI single to left to score Lawrie.

Wojciechowski, who remains 0-1 on the year, ballooned his ERA to 7.31 in 16 innings this season. He will look for his first win of the year Friday against the Mariners.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:43 pm ET) The Royals have optioned pitcher Aaron Brooks to Triple-A Omaha after Sunday's game, the team announced. Brooks was called up earlier in the day as the team was allowed an extra roster spot with Kansas City and Chicago finishing Friday's game that was suspended in the ninth inning.

Brooks has an 0-2 record with a 4.70 ERA so far this season for Triple-A Omaha.


Diamondbacks pitcher Bronson Arroyo still dealing with pain in elbow
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:31 pm ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Bronson Arroyo is still feeling a noticeable pain in his right elbow on the road to recovery from Tommy John surgery, according to MLB.com.

Arroyo underwent the procedure last July and is hopeful to return during the second half of the season at some point. Arizona has a $4.5 million buyout on Arroyo's contract at the end of the season, which is motivating his speedy recovery from the surgery.

"That's why I'd like to get back and maybe make 10 starts the second half of the season to show what I can do," Arroyo said. "That way they have some basis for making a decision."
