AROUND THE HORN
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.
