Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts left Sunday’s 8-7 victory over the Rays in the seventh inning after injuring his left ankle while sliding into the Rays’ dugout.
An aggressive forecheck led to Thomas knocking Andrew Peeke off the puck in the right corner. The puck went to Kuhlman and back to Thomas, who banked a shot from near the goal line off Morris and in with 1:21 left in the period.
Oglevie redirected a pass from Cam Morrison for a power-play goal in the second period to get the Irish on the board.
Welcome to 2018. On Monday night in Arizona, Jansen inherited a three-run lead in the ninth inning and after scuffling with a few walks permitted Chris Owings, a career .392 slugger, to mash a shocking, game-tying home run. Jansen finished the inning but it marked the second consecutive game he allowed a home run to, well, someone he should not be allowing home runs to (Joe Panik was the first), and we cannot help but notice he boasts nary a strikeout through two full innings and was seen rubbing his throwing shoulder in the dugout.
Both starters were gone after five innings. Harvey left with the lead after giving up four runs and nine hits, while Washington’s Tanner Roark allowed five runs and five hits. Nine Mets reached base against Roark, all with two outs.
The Nationals took a 2-0 lead in the first when Harper homered down the right field line on a 1-1 fastball.
Now the 26-year-old will start over in Dallas, where rumblings continue about Bryant’s future with the team. For the time being, though, Hurns figures to be competing more with Terrance Williams for targets.
“It’s tough, and it’s a shame,” Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia said on Monday. “(Ramirez) worked very, very hard. It definitely knocks the wind out of you when you see a guy who worked as hard as he has and has to miss a whole year.”
All is not well with Texas on the injury front either as it lost second baseman Rougned Odor to a left hamstring pull in the first inning. The Rangers said Odor aggravated an injury from Thursday in Oakland when he tweaked the hamstring stretching for a throw at second base.
Odor’s injury will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.
