Indians get catching help, acquire Plawecki from Mets
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Indians have replenished their bare catching cupboard.
After trading top prospect Francisco Mejia and All-Star catcher Yan Gomes last year, the Indians had a void behind the plate and filled it Sunday by acquiring catcher Kevin Plawecki in a trade with the New York Mets.
Nola gets 13th win, Phils top Padres 5-1 to sit atop NL East
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies got their offense jump-started. Aaron Nola took care of the rest.
Nola pitched six scoreless innings, Maikel Franco and Cesar Hernandez homered, and the Phillies beat the San Diego Padres 5-1 on Saturday night.
The Phillies had been shut out in their previous two games and went 18 consecutive innings without scoring at Petco Park, dating back to last season, before they put two on the board in the first inning.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Padres optioned right-hander Walker Lockett to Triple-A El Paso on Saturday, a night after he made his big league debut, and recalled left-hander Jose Castillo.
Castillo was acquired along with Wil Myers from Tampa Bay in a three-team, 11-player trade on Dec. 18, 2014. His first appearance will be his big league debut. He will become the ninth Padres player — and seventh pitcher — to debut this season.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Scooter Gennett hitting a home run is nothing unusual for the Cincinnati Reds.
Michael Lorenzen recording a four-inning save certainly is.
Gennett homered, Jose Peraza had three hits and three RBIs, and Lorenzen cruised through the last four innings for his first save this year as the Reds beat rookie right-hander Walker Lockett and the San Diego Padres 7-2 Friday night in a matchup of last-place teams.
