Only two weeks ago the Yankees were one loss from their worst start to a season in more than 25 years, so forgive manager Joe Girardi if he sounded blase about his ballclub taking over first place in the AL East. Brian McCann hit a tiebreaking home run and Adam Warren pitched effectively into the sixth inning as New York ended the Tampa Bay Rays’ five-game winning streak with a 4-1 victory Monday night.

When the Detroit Tigers signed Joe Nathan before the 2014 season, they expected baseball’s active saves leader to simply keep rolling. After a few too many bad outings, they traded for a backup plan in Joakim Soria, widely considered the top reliever on the market.

Relievers generally aren’t as consistent as starters or hitters, Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said.

The White Sox signed David Robertson to pitch the ninth inning for them. Robertson was on the mound when Chicago resumed a suspended game against Kansas City and got the win when Avisail Garcia’s tiebreaking RBI single lifted the White Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Royals on Sunday. ”Any time you resume a game, it’s weird,” White Sox manager Robin Ventura said.

A benches-clearing fight led to five ejections several innings before Eric Hosmer hit the go-ahead double in the 13th to lead the Royals to a 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night. With two outs, Hosmer’s hit off Chicago’s Jake Petricka (0-1) brought in Jarrod Dyson. ”With two or three scrums going on you’re always worried about somebody getting hurt,” Royals manager Ned Yost said.
