Bos­ton’s Pe­droia ( ham­string) on DL

Los Angeles Times - - THE DAY IN SPORTS -

The Bos­ton Red Sox placed sec­ond base­man Dustin Pe­droia on the 15- day dis­abled list be­fore Thurs­day’s 8- 6 loss to Bal­ti­more, a day af­ter he strained his right ham­string.

Pe­droia was hurt round­ing f irst base af­ter his go- ahead, two- run sin­gle in the sixth in­ning of Bos­ton’s 5- 1 vic­tory Wed­nes­day over the Ori­oles.

Pe­droia is hit­ting .306 with nine homers and 33 RBIs.

At­lanta Braves right f ielder Nick Markakis saw his record streak of 398 con­sec­u­tive games with­out an er­ror end in the f irst in­ning of Thurs­day’s game against the Washington Na­tion­als.

De­nard Span sin­gled to right field lead­ing off and Markakis bob­bled the ball, al­low­ing Span to take sec­ond.

Markakis, who signed with At­lanta in the off- sea­son, es­tab­lished the all­time MLB record for con­sec­u­tive er­ror­less games by a non- pitcher on June 18 — break­ing the pre­vi­ous mark of 392, set by Dar­ren Lewis from 1990 to ’ 94. Markakis had not made an er­ror since Aug. 10, 2012, while with the Ori­oles.

The An­gels ac­quired mi­nor league re­liever Kyle Win­kler from the Tampa Bay Rays in ex­change for f irst base­man/ out­fielder Marc Krauss.

Win­kler, 25, has split this sea­son be­tween dou­ble- A Mont­gomery ( Ala.) and triple- A Durham ( N. C.), com­pil­ing a 1.46 earned- run av­er­age in 10 games.

The left- handed- hit­ting Krauss played only 11 games with the An­gels this sea­son, hit­ting .143 with one home run and five runs bat­ted in.

USC’s Gar­rett Stubbs won the Johnny Bench Award, awarded to the top catcher in Di­vi­sion I base­ball. Stubbs, a se­nior, bat­ted .346 and led the Tro­jans with 20 stolen bases.
