AROUND THE HORN

Baltimore Sun - - BASEBALL -

Mets: RHP Noah Syn­der­gaard has been pre­scribed more rest af­ter get­ting a sec­ond opin­ion on a strained lig­a­ment in his in­dex fin­ger. Man­ager Mickey Call­away said Syn­der­gaard’s right fin­ger is “ten­der to the touch.” Syn­der­gaard, on the dis­abled list retroac­tive to May 26, was ex­am­ined Tues­day in New York. There’s no im­me­di­ate timetable for his re­turn.

Red Sox: LHP Chris Sale took a two-hit­ter into the sev­enth in­ning be­fore be­ing ejected, and the Red Sox com­pleted a three-game sweep of the skid­ding Ori­oles with a 5-1 vic­tory in Bal­ti­more. Af­ter is­su­ing two walks to open the sev­enth in a 5-0 game, Sale (6-4) was lifted by man­ager Alex Cora. As he was mak­ing his way to the dugout, the left-han­der yelled at home plate um­pire Brian Knight and was promptly ejected. Sale struck out nine, al­lowed one run and gave up two hits in end­ing a run of three straight los­ing starts. Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez home­red for the Red Sox.

Yan­kees: Man­ag­ing gen­eral part­ner Hal Stein­bren­ner said his team might need a start­ing pitch­ing up­grade if they’re go­ing to reach the World Se­ries. Stein­bren­ner said the club will ex­plore the trade mar­ket for an arm, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing the re­cent loss of LHP Jor­dan Mont­gomery, who had sea­son-end­ing Tommy John surgery on June 7.

Tigers: Vic­tor Reyes’ RBI sin­gle keyed a four-run eighth in­ning and the host Tigers ral­lied to beat the Twins 5-2. The Tigers, play­ing their first game since Miguel Cabr­era’s sea­son-end­ing bi­ceps in­jury, won for just the fourth time in 11 games.

Rock­ies: Ian Des­mond hit a two-run homer in a five-run fourth in­ning, Tyler An­der­son pitched seven strong in­nings and the Rock­ies routed the host Phillies 7-2 to end a five-game los­ing streak.

Mariners: Mitch Haniger hit a two-run home run in the bot­tom of the ninth in­ning to give the host Mariners an 8-6 vic­tory and sweep of the three-game se­ries over the An­gels.
