Robertson hits slam, Rays push run to 6

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Daniel Robertson grew up watching games at Angel Stadium and was in the stands when the Los Angeles Angels won the World Series in 2002.

Dodgers rally to finish DH sweep of Nats

WASHINGTON (AP) Not much has gone right for the Los Angeles Dodgers this season, and it appeared the most last year's NL champions could hope for on Saturday was a split of a day-night doubleheader with the Washington Nationals after they ran into yet another dominant start by Max Scherzer.

One swing by Matt Kemp changed everything, and the Dodgers rallied for a 5-4 victory in the nightcap and their third straight win after losing nine of their previous 10.

Braves' Newcomb wins 4th straight start

ATLANTA (AP) Sean Newcomb couldn't summon the usual bite on his fastball, so he decided to just settle in and pitch.
