Take a look at what’s happening around the Major on Sunday:
Susan G. Komen and Major League Baseball are coming together in the fight against breast cancer, and Komen’s “Share a Moment with Mom” campaign will debut a Mother’s Day video on Sunday. The video will be released on the organization’s social media channels and website. It will also appear in stadiums and will feature players such as Pete Alonso, Tim Anderson, Carlos Correa, Carlos Rodone and Mike Trout along with their mothers.
make them up
After rain wreaks havoc with the baseball schedule this weekend, there are 18 games on tap, including three doubleheaders.
Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies host the New York Mets, Cedric Mullins and the Baltimore Orioles host the Kansas City Royals, and Gerritt Cole and the New York Yankees host the Texas Rangers in three twinbills.
That comes after six adjournments on Friday and three more on Saturday. The Rangers are making their only scheduled trip to play the Yankees this season, and the same is true for the Royals in Baltimore. After doubleheaders on Sunday, those two series are now extended to Monday.
George Kirby, baseball’s fifth-ranked right-handed pitching prospect according to MLB Pipeline, makes his big league debut for the Seattle Mariners against Tampa Bay.
Kirby was competing with Matt Brash for last place in the rotation during spring training. Now the brash is being converted into a reliever.
The Mariners took on Kirby in the first round of the 2019 draft. He started the season at Double-A Arkansas, where he went 2–0 with a 1.82 ERA in five starts.
help on the way
Oakland outfielder Ramon Loreno deserves a return from his 80-game drug suspension. Athletics manager Mark Coats said he was on his way to Minnesota on Saturday to join the team. Lauriano played 10 games with Triple-A Las Vegas.
A in the basement has had eight consecutive defeats in his game against the Twins. Minnesota leads the AL Central but may have to deal with his absence after star outfielder Byron Buxton left Saturday’s game with a right hip stiffness.
on a roll
Jose Altuve and the Houston Astros have won six in a row – the last three by one run each over the Tigers. Houston now goes for a four-game sweep of Detroit.
Miguel Cabrera and Dusty Baker both achieved milestones on Saturday. Baker won his 2,004th game as manager, placing Bruce Bouchy 11th on the career list. Cabrera doubled in the third inning, joining Hank Aaron and Albert Pujols as the only player with at least 3,000 hits, 500 homers and 600 doubles.
