New manager, same result for stumbling Marlins
UNDATED (AP) — The Florida Marlins changed managers after falling to 16-22 on Sunday, dismissing Mike Redmond and replacing him with GM Dan Jennings. The move had no immediate impact as the Marlins dropped a 3-2, 12-inning decision to the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks blew a 2-0 lead in the seventh before David Peralta doubled home the tiebreaking run. Yasmany Tomas hit a two-run double for Arizona, which ended a four-game skid and sent the Marlins to their fourth consecutive loss.
J.T. Realmuto bashed a two-run homer for the Marlins.
Jennings was named Miami's manager on Monday, one day after Redmond was let go. Redmond never had a winning campaign while posting a 155-207 mark in two-plus seasons. Jennings has no professional managing experience and never played major league baseball. Team president David Samson says no other candidate was considered because the team has gone through so many managers.
Jennings was in his third year as GM. For now the GM duties will be delegated to others in the front office.
Also in the majors:
— Eric Campbell scored on John Mayberry's infield single in the bottom of the 14th to send the New York Mets to their third straight win, 2-1 over St. Louis. Mets starter Matt Harvey was in line for his sixth victory but settled for a no-decision after allowing six hits while striking out nine in eight scoreless innings.
— Houston's five-game winning streak is over after Oakland's relievers tossed hitless ball over 4 2/3 innings to lead a 2-1 triumph over the Astros. Evan Gattis and Brett Lawrie provided RBI singles as the A's ended a four-game losing streak and improved to 14-26.
— Carlos Gomez hit a solo homer and added a tiebreaking, RBI single in the seventh inning to push Milwaukee past Detroit 3-2. Gomez was playing one day after he was hit on the ear flap of his helmet by a 96 mph pitch from Mets hurler Noah Syndergaard.
— Jose Bautista was 3-for-4 with a two-run homer, three RBIs and three runs scored as Toronto knocked off the Angels 10-6 to end a five-game skid. Russell Martin had three hits and supplied a go-ahead, two-run single after the Blue Jays blew a 4-0 lead.
— Carlos Sanchez lined an RBI single with two out in the bottom of the 10th to complete the Chicago White Sox's 2-1 win against Cleveland. The Indians lost despite Corey Kluber, who followed his 18-strikeout performance by fanning 12 and allowing five hits in nine innings.
— Philadelphia is out of the NL East cellar after Cole Hamels gave up a run and six hits over 7 1/3 innings to pitch the Phillies past Colorado 4-3. The game was tied 1-1 in the sixth until Odubel Herrera Herrera hit a two-run double and scored on a single by Carlos Ruis.
Yanks' Whitley set for Tommy John surgery
UNDATED (AP) — Yankees right-hander Chase Whitley will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery on Tuesday. The 25-year-old Whitley left his start Thursday against Tampa Bay in the second inning because of pain in his elbow.
Whitley was 1-2 with a 4.19 ERA in four starts this season.
Injured Yankees pitchers Masahiro Tanaka and Ivan Nova continue their comebacks. Tanaka hasn't pitched since April 23 because of right wrist tendinitis and a right forearm strain. He threw a bullpen session Monday.
Nova is expected back next month, 15 months after Tommy John surgery.
Also in the majors:
— Detroit Tigers hurler Justin Verlander threw a 45-pitch bullpen session before Monday's game against Milwaukee. The right-hander says he'd likely need a simulated game and at least one rehab start before making his major league season debut. Verlander has not pitched because of a strained right triceps.
— The Cleveland Indians have activated utilityman Mike Aviles from the restricted list. Aviles was originally put on the family medical emergency list while his 4-year-old daughter was being treated for leukemia at the Cleveland Clinic. He is hitting .288 in 18 games for the Indians this season.
— Baltimore right-hander Bud Norris has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with bronchitis, a move that's retroactive to May 11. Norris is 1-4 with a 9.88 ERA.
— The Milwaukee Brewers have optioned second baseman Scooter Gennett to Triple-A Colorado Springs and recalled right-hander Corey Knebel. Gennett has hit .154 in 21 games for the Brewers this season.
— Atlanta Braves backup infielder Phil Gosselin will miss about eight weeks because of a fractured left thumb. The 26-year-old is hitting .325 with two RBIs in 40 at-bats after making the opening-day roster for the first time in his big league career.
— Troy Tulowitzki is back in the Colorado Rockies lineup after sitting out the last two games with tightness in his left quadriceps.
Lightning thump Rangers
NEW YORK (AP) — The Tampa Bay Lightning have knotted the NHL's Eastern Conference finals at a game apiece by dealing the New York Rangers their most lopsided postseason loss since 2009.
Tyler Johnson scored the Lightning's first three goals and Alex Kallorn added a pair of third-period tallies as the Lightning ripped the Blueshirts 6-2 at Madison Square Garden. Johnson opened the scoring with a short-handed goal 5:38 into the game before netting one of the Lightning's three power-play goals later in the first period.
It was the first hat trick in Tampa Bay playoff history.
Killorn and Steven Stamkos added power-play tallies to close the scoring as Tampa Bay ended the Rangers' NHL-record string of 15 consecutive one-goal games.
Rangers netminder Henrik Lundqvist stopped just 20 of 26 shots after entering the game with a 1.56 goals-against average and a .945 save percentage, both league bests.
Ben Bishop made 15 of his 35 saves in the final period for the Lightning, who host Game 3 on Wednesday.
Flyers name Hakstol as coach
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Flyers' hierarchy now includes Hextall as general manager and Hakstol as head coach.
GM Ron Hextall has hired Dave Hakstol to replace head coach Craig Berube. Hakstol spent the last 11 seasons at North Dakota, where he compiled a 289-143-43 record. He just guided North Dakota to a 29-10-3 mark and a berth in the 2015 NCAA Frozen Four.
North Dakota never missed the NCAA tournament under Hakstol, reaching the Frozen Four seven times.
The Flyers missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons this year, going 33-31-18.
Cavs' Irving will play in opener
INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) — Cavaliers All-Star guard Kyrie Irving returned to practice on Monday and says he'll play in Wednesday's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals against Atlanta.
Irving sat out Cleveland's practice Saturday and spent the weekend receiving treatment for tendinitis in his left knee and a sprained right foot. He injured the foot in Game 2 of the conference quarterfinals against Boston.
Irving took part in Cleveland's entire practice on Monday after playing just 12 minutes in the Cavs' Game 6 win over Chicago.
Blazers star has surgery
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge has had surgery to repair a ligament in his left thumb. The team says it expects him to return to basketball activities in about eight weeks.
The four-time All-Star averaged 23.4 points and 10.2 rebounds during the regular season, playing with the injured thumb for part of that time. He averaged 21.8 points and 11.2 rebounds in the playoffs.
No surgery for Wizards' Wall
WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington Wizards All-Star point guard John Wall says he does not need surgery for the fractures in his left hand and wrist that kept him out of three playoff games.
Wall says that he will head to Cleveland this week or next to see a specialist about the injury and find out what he needs to do to heal properly.
He was hurt during Game 1 of Washington's season-ending, second-round series against the Atlanta Hawks before missing the next three games.
