ARLINGTON -- At long last, this is exactly what the Mariners hoped their lineup would look like. And perhaps not coincidentally in a 6-2 victory over the Rangers on Friday, Seattle also steered from its one-run-win formula with the type of late-inning mettle that, at least until now, was mostly

BOSTON -- Before the hysteria created by Tommy Pham’s walk-off hit in his dramatic introduction to the storied Red Sox-Yankees rivalry, you had Garrett Whitlock going into “airplane“ mode. “It’s a joke,” J.D. Martinez said of the filthy offerings of Whitlock. “I was talking about it earlier today. I was
