Mookie Betts put his first grand slam as his top rookie season highlight so far. Betts hit Boston’s fourth slam of the year, Anthony Ranaudo pitched six effective innings and the Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-4 Friday night. ”I can’t tell you the last time I’ve hit a grand slam, going back to high school and everything else,” Betts said. ”Just to hit one is pretty enjoyable.” After Yoenis Cespedes drove in his second run of the game with a double, Betts connected off Chris Archer (8-7) to cap a five-run second inning that made it 8-0.

Jesus Montero will not play baseball again this season for the Seattle Mariners’ organization after a heated confrontation in the stands with a team scout during a minor league game in Boise, Idaho. Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik said on Friday that the actions of Montero and cross-checker Butch Baccala were ”unacceptable” and ”embarrassing” for the club. Montero was being brought back to Seattle while Baccala was told to return to his home in the Bay Area and await internal discussions regarding discipline. It is unacceptable,” Zduriencik said.

The Kansas City Royals have followed that blueprint to near-perfection, a big reason why the long-downtrodden franchise is leading the AL Central and on the cusp of its first playoff appearance in nearly 30 years. There’s very little room for error when you’re a small-market club,” general manager Dayton Moore said in an interview with The Associated Press. Indeed, the notoriously frugal Royals play in a market a fraction of the size of Los Angeles or New York. The Royals’ opening-day payroll?

It’s the type of anecdote that sounds like an urban legend: The New York Yankees once sent Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera down to the minors at the same time? Jeter remembers, all right – because that demotion in 1995 came right as he was preparing to play in his home state of Michigan for the first time as a major leaguer. ”I had everything packed and ready to come to Detroit, had family and friends coming,” Jeter said. ”Then we got demoted to Triple-A.” Nearly two decades later, Jeter was in Detroit on Tuesday, reminiscing a bit about his connection to Michigan before the Yankees played the opener of a three-game series against the Tigers.

Derek Jeter drove in two runs in his final scheduled trip to Kauffman Stadium, backing a sharp outing from Michael Pineda and helping the New York Yankees beat the Kansas City Royals 6-1 on Monday night for their fifth straight win. Jacoby Ellsbury drove in a run in the seventh inning with the 1,000th hit of his career, then added a two-run homer in the ninth. Stephen Drew and Martin Prado also homered for New York. Pineda (3-2) gave up a solo shot to Mike Moustakas leading off the third inning, but that was about it in his third game back from the disabled list.
