  • Cabrera, Price lead Tigers’ rout
    David Price would like to forget everything about Aug. 27, maybe the ugliest game of his career. He erased some it from his memory.
  • Brewers’ Central lead eclipsed by Soler, Cubs
    Jorge Soler has never lacked confidence. Even before being promoted to the major leagues last week, the Cuban slugger declared this season to be “his time.” But his blistering start with the Chicago Cubs has caught even him off-guard.
  • Kirk wins Deutsche Bank by 2
    Chris Kirk made three big putts and captured the biggest win of his career Monday in the Deutsche Bank Championship. Whether that was enough for U.S. captain Tom Watson to add him to the Ryder Cup team was the least of his concerns.

Gordon's 2 triples lead Dodgers past Rockies

DENVER — Dee Gordon tripled twice among his three hits and drove in three runs as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Colorado 7-2 on Friday night, handing the Rockies their eighth straight defeat.

Hanley Ramirez had two hits and stole two bases, and Justin Turner also had two of Los Angeles' 12 hits.

The Dodgers had lost six of eight but got healthy against the struggling Rockies. Hyun-Jin Ryu cruised through the first five innings before Drew Stubbs hit a solo homer with one out in the sixth.

Ryu (7-2) allowed two runs and eight hits over six innings.

Stubbs and Troy Tulowitzki had two hits each for the slumping Rockies, who lost again in starter Eddie Butler's major league debut.
