Matt Kemp followed with an RBI single to make it 2-0. The victor of the last two NL Cy Young Awards gave up five hits, walked one and permitted just one runner past first base. He faced baserunners in every inning except the fifth. But scoring two runs in four games is downright embarrassing.

Red Sox 3, Rays 2: Rick Porcello hurled 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball and Xander Bogaerts hit a solo home run and had two RBIs as Boston beat host Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field. Holland walked both Bellinger and Barnes.

In three of the first six innings, the Giants managed to push a runner into scoring position against Dodgers' left-hander Rich Hill, but no player could spark an offensive surge.

Only three other teams have ever scored two or fewer runs in the first four games of a season.

Maeda pitched out of a jam in the second.

Corey Seager was on second base and Yasiel Puig was on first with one out. He appeared in four of the seven World Series games.

Hill (1-0) allowed five hits and walked three, striking out five. He struck out four.

Major League Baseball betting pick, via OddsShark computer: 4.8-1.0, Dodgers.

The Diamondbacks were a solid offensive team a year ago as they ranked 8th in the league in scoring, putting up 5.01 rpg, while also ranking 17th in hitting at.254 and 12th in homers with 220.

"We won a game", the Dodgers manager said, smiling.

A Kurdish official told Reuters after Thursday's meeting that Macron had promised to send more troops to northern Syria. The sources initially said five soldiers were killed.It was not clear when the attack occurred.

They were off to Phoenix on Monday for their first trip of the season with a 2-2 record, a relief after beginning the season with a pair of 1-0 losses.

After the Giants took the first two games of the weekend with narrow 1-0 victories, its pitching staff failed to remain ideal on Saturday and Sunday, a sin that by no means should guarantee a losing effort.

The defending National League champs have not scored in two games.

ATLANTA - Carlos Santana drove in J.P. Crawford with a sacrifice fly in the 11th inning, and first-year Philadelphia manager Gabe Kapler went through nine pitchers for his first win as the Phillies beat Atlanta.

Gibson, Pressly and Gabriel Moya combined on a three-hitter for the Twins.

Even when Puig made a mistake Sunday as he did in the fourth inning, attempting to tag up and advance to second on Bellinger's flyout to left, it worked out.

Angels 8, Athletics 3: Zack Cozart and Mike Trout provided a formidable 1-2 punch at the top of the lineup, leading the way for Los Angeles over Oakland at Oakland Coliseum. The offense really needs to pick things up as they have hit just.128 through three games so far and if the offense continues to struggle then that will put a ton of pressure on the pitching staff.

After Crawford netted the first hit by either team on a soft gr0undball, the Dodgers oddly used their second of six allotted mound visits ahead of a two-out at-bat by Cueto. Why?

Nicholas Castellanos was initially called safe at home in the bottom of the 10th for the Tigers, but a replay review took the run away and the teams played on.
