It was the top of the fourth inning, and Orioles first baseman Chris Davis was batting with Manny Machado on first. The ball was a laser, and it was hit right to third baseman Eugenio Suarez, who was manning the shift between first and second base. Suarez recovered the ball quickly and, assuming that the ball was still live, threw it to second base to get Machado out.
The Los Angeles Dodgers had no problem giving away a baseball game on Friday night. Thanks to an unexpected bullpen implosion, they saw a one-run lead turn into a 13-5 loss when the Arizona Diamondbacks pelted them for nine runs in the eighth inning. Case in point, right fielder Yasiel Puig did his best to live up to his #PuigYourFriend mantra.
The Los Angeles Angels have moved right-hander Garrett Richards to the 60-day disabled list with a strained right biceps. Richards missed most of last season with a partially torn elbow ligament, but chose rest and stem-cell injections over Tommy John surgery. An MRI exam earlier this month showed nerve irritation in Richards' biceps, but apparently no problems with his elbow ligament.
