MLB Notes: Athletics place Sonny Gray on DL

MLB Notes: Athletics place Sonny Gray on DL

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Athletics ace Sonny Gray has been put on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained trapezius muscle near his right shoulder blade.

Oakland made the move Sunday, two days after Gray threw three wild pitches and walked four while retiring just 10 batters in an 8-3 loss to the Yankees. Gray is 3-5 in nine starts with a 6.19 ERA, third-highest in the AL among qualifying pitchers.

Gray said he received a shot that was half cortisone and half anti-inflammatory in his shoulder not long after exiting the game but the condition did not get any better.

The 2015 All-Star has had command problems for much of the season. He has a 10.38 ERA over his past five starts and has lost four straight decisions, matching his career-high.

Right-handed reliever Daniel Coulombe was recalled from Triple-A Nashville.

Red Sox: Bradley extends hit streak to 27 games
BOSTON -- Jackie Bradley Jr. of the Boston Red Sox has extended his hitting streak to 27 games.

Bradley singled in the fifth inning Sunday against Cleveland at Fenway Park.

Dom DiMaggio set the Red Sox record with a 34-game streak in 1949. DiMaggio's brother, Joe, owns the longest streak in major league history at 56 games.

Blue Jays: Manager John Gibbons ejected for 4th time this season 
MINNEAPOLIS -- Toronto manager John Gibbons was ejected from the Blue Jays' game against Minnesota on Sunday, the fourth time he was tossed this season.

A day after Toronto's Josh Donaldson was ejected by umpire Toby Basner in the first inning, Gibbons got the early exit from crew chief Joe West in the fifth.

Donaldson homered in the first inning Sunday and stared at the Twins' dugout as he crossed home plate.

Minnesota starter Phil Hughes threw two pitches to the AL MVP in the fifth, one inside and one behind him. Donaldson expressed his displeasure to plate umpire Mark Ripperger.

Gibbons came out of the dugout and argued with Ripperger and West, who came in from his spot at first base, then was tossed. Toronto starter Marcus Stroman hit Kurt Suzuki with a pitch in the bottom of the inning.

Gibbons was ejected from last Sunday's game at Texas, then returned to the field during a brawl between the teams, earning a three-game suspension for both the return and inciting fighting.

Like son, like father? Sub dad notches goal in Rocket League match

Like son, like father? Sub dad notches goal in Rocket League match

Like son, like father?
This weekend, CSN made its broadcast debut in the world of eSports by hosting one of the regionals in the $100,000 2v2 Universal Open Rocket League tournament and a tremendous storyline emerged as one player’s dad, who had never played Rocket League before, had to sub in and actually scored a goal!
Josh “JumpOnStuff” Russo learned last night that his teammate, who he had been training with, could not make it to the event, but he tweeted this morning that he had a surprise replacement.

Little did we know, it would be his dad, who had never played Rocket League before.
After struggling initially, Nick Russo, who affectionately was known as Dad throughout the game, backed his way into the ball for the lone goal late in a 4-1 loss in their first game together. When he scored, the viewers went nuts

Despite the loss, this is a moment Nick and his son will never forget.
"One of the best father-son experiences I've ever had," Dad said. “"I've done a lot of pretty crazy things in my life and this is definitely one of them."
