    Tomas, Castillo, Bradley Leads Diamondbacks Past Reds, 11-2

    In his third game back from a major injury, A.J. Pollock looked like the player he was in 2015. Pollock went 3 for 5 and stole two bases for his first hits and steals of the season after being out with a broken elbow since the end of spring training, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Cincinnati Reds 11-2 on Sunday. "It's weird. I never really think about hits but when you have no hits, it's nice to get that first one," said Pollock, who hit .315 with 20 home runs, 39 steals and 192 hits last season. "I still feel like the game's a little fast, but it's natural. I'm sure it will get better. "I was trying to impact the game as many ways as I can," he added. Yasmany Tomas homered, Welington

    MLB awards watch: Kris Bryant, Jose Altuve front runners for MVP awards

    Kris Bryant's two-home run performance over the weekend exemplified why he has become the front runner to win the National League MVP, just a year removed from winning rookie of the year honors. Bryant, third baseman for the Chicago Cubs and occasional outfielder, received eight of the 10 first-place votes in USA TODAY Sports' NL MVP power rankings. His defensive versatility and offensive numbers -- he leads the majors in runs scored (107), the NL in total bases (287) and is tied for the home run lead (35) -- has elevated his status one year after claiming NL Rookie of the Year honors. With just over a month left in the regular season, he faces tough competition from teammate Anthony Rizzo, Los

    Diamondbacks 11, Reds 2: Turnabout's fair play

    Record: 55-76. Pace: 68-94. Change on 2015: -8. The D-backs had 18 hits twice before this year: on April 25 against the Cardinals, and four days ago, in the 11-inning victory over the Braves. But both of those, more or less,. had the A-lineup in operation. If you looked at the card filled out by Chip Hale this afternoon, which included Phil Gosselin batting lead-off and playing first-base, as well as Rickie Weeks' Jr batting clean-up, I doubt you would have predicted a further 18-hit game, especially on the heels of last night's feeble hitting. Such is the joy of baseball, of course: the same two teams can play on consecutive days, and the results are often utterly different. Here, for example,
