AROUND THE HORN

Baltimore Sun - - BASEBALL -

An­gels: DH Al­bert Pu­jols went on the 10-day dis­abled list Fri­day with left knee in­flam­ma­tion. The move came one night af­ter he hit two home runs to tie Ken Grif­fey Jr. for sixth place on the ca­reer list with 630.

In­di­ans: RHP Corey Klu­ber re­ceived an in­jec­tion in his right knee and will miss the All-Star Game. Klu­ber needs a week to re­cover from the in­jec­tion and the team said he will not make his next start un­til July 23.

Yan­kees: Closer Aroldis Chap­man won’t pitch in the All-Star Game in or­der to rest his sore left knee. Chap­man, who has made the All-Star team five times, is 2-0 with a 1.38 ERA and 25 saves in 40 ap­pear­ances.

Astros: RHP Char­lie Mor­ton was added to the Amer­i­can League All-Star team, giv­ing the Astros a ma­jor-league-lead­ing six play­ers in Tues­day’s game. Mor­ton, who is 11-2 with a 2.96 ERA and 146 strike­outs in 19 starts, joins fel­low RHPs Justin Ver­lan­der and Ger­rit Cole, 2B Jose Al­tuve, OF Ge­orge Springer and 3B Alex Breg­man on the squad.

Phillies: OF Aaron Altherr drove in his first run of July and later started a sen­sa­tional re­lay to pro­tect the lead, help­ing RHP Jake Ar­ri­eta and the Na­tional League East-lead­ing Phillies top the Mar­lins 2-0. Ar­ri­eta pitched seven in­nings of three-hit ball.

Pi­rates: 1B Josh Bell tied a ca­reer high with four hits, OF Gre­gory Polanco home­red and both drove in two runs to lead the Pi­rates to a 7-3 vic­tory over the Brew­ers, whose NL Cen­tral lead was cut to a half-game. RHP Nick King­ham tied a ca­reer high with nine strike­outs in 61⁄ in­nings.

Mets: RHP Noah Syn­der­gaard pitched out of trou­ble in a rusty re­turn from the dis­abled list and helped him­self with an RBI sin­gle as the Mets beat the Na­tion­als 4-2. SS Amed Rosario tripled and dou­bled, both times over Bryce Harper’s head in cen­ter field, and the Mets won for only the sixth time in their last 26 home games.

Ori­oles: RHP Dar­ren O’Day un­der­went sea­son- end­ing surgery on his left ham­string.
