Tigers drop third straight game with a 5-1 loss to the Angels. Wheels fall off in the eighth inning and an otherwise stellar start by Justin Verlander is spoiled. Credit to Jhoulys Chacin, who pitched very well, but Tigers offense came up painfully short.

An incongruous pitching line for Tigers ace Justin Verlander: 7 1/3 IP, 4H, 4R, 4ET, 7Ks, 116 pitches. Hardly a reflection of his night, but Tigers imploded in eighth. 5-0 Angels.

Tigers ace Justin Verlander leaves the game with one out remaining in the eighth and Detroit trailing 3-0. Critical sequence of events with Andrew Romine making diving catch at short, but throw to home not in time. Catcher James McCann charged with error after off-balance throw to first. Angels open up a 1-0 lead, tacking on an extra pair of runs. Appears likely a stellar performance from Verlander will be for naught.

For his next trick, Miggy will make this helmet levitate.

Hometown boy Andrew Romine the one to break up Angels' Jhoulys Chacin no-hit bid in the sixth inning. Tigers INF with a two-out sharp single to left. Justin Verlander gave up his first hit of the game against leadoff batter CJ Cron in the fifth. Still, superb pitching from both players through 7 innings tonight

Mazara smacks home run way on out

Nomar Mazara crushed this Austin Adams pitch 453 feet to dead center field into the trees that serve as the batter's eye at Progressive Field.

Quite the pitching duel developing here at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. 12 up, 12 down for both Justin Verlander and Jhoulys Chacin through the first four innings.

For the second straight game, the Yankees barely had any offense. Just like on Sunday, they only scored two runs on a home run. Unlike Sunday, the Yankees lost, 4-2, to the Blue Jays.

James Loney is set to be activated Tuesday by the Mets. He told reporters on Monday at Citi Field: "To come to this team, you can just tell the energy here is great, the vibe. And to be defending NL champs is big. I've always felt like you want to win and want to be in the right situation. And I feel this is the right situation." Loney is expected to platoon at first base, facing right-handed pitching. Lucas Duda may miss two months with a stress fracture in his lower back.

Here's how Matt Harvey explained his weeklong media boycott upon breaking his silence Monday: "I was frustrated with myself. I know it wasn't right and it wasn't acceptable. I let my emotions get the best of me." Harvey made the comment after tossing seven scoreless innings in a 1-0 win against the White Sox at Citi Field.

Video: Travis Wood was the hero for the Cubs in their 2-0 win over the Dodgers on Monday. He came in cold off the couch in the Cubs clubhouse to pitch four perfect innings in place of Jason Hammel (leg cramps).

The Cubs believe pitcher Jason Hammel will be fine for his next start after leaving Monday's 2-0 win over the Dodgers with cramping in his right leg.
