DETROIT (AP) Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera will be sidelined with a left calf injury for at least six weeks after the Tigers placed the AL batting leader on the disabled list for the first time in his career.

The two-time AL MVP pulled up while breaking for second on an attempted hit-and-run in the fourth inning of Friday's 8-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. An MRI showed a strain of his calf muscle but no injury to his Achilles tendon.

Cabrera is hitting .350 with 15 homers and 54 RBIs.


Greinke runs shutout streak to 27 2-3 IP

LOS ANGELES (AP) Zack Greinke insists he just lives in the present, so don't ask him to consider his career-best scoreless streak of 27 2/3 innings or a possible start for the National League in the All-Star Game.

"I don't really think about it," he said after scattering four hits over seven scoreless innings in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 4-3 win over the New York Mets on Saturday night.


Strasburg exits early with side injury

WASHINGTON (AP) Seems like every bat Bryce Harper uses this season provides fireworks for the Washington Nationals.

The patriotic version he used on July 4 against Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants was no exception.


Yankees walk off again against Rays

NEW YORK (AP) Mark Teixeira turned on a 94 mph fastball from Brad Boxberger and hit a sharp grounder between the diving bodies of James Loney, positioned just off first base, and second baseman Jake Elmore, about 15 feet from the foul line, in short right field.

After the ball rolled to the wall in the right-field corner, Teixeira slid into second base with a leadoff double in the ninth inning. A few minutes later, the Yankees had their second straight walk-off win over the Tampa Bay Rays.


Bryant's 2 HRs, 6 RBIs power Cubs

Mauer has 4 hits, HR as Twins top Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Joe Mauer continues to make Kansas City his home away from home.

Santiago, Cron help Angels rip Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) C.J. Cron and the Los Angeles Angels finally gave Hector Santiago plenty of run support.

Santiago responded with another superb outing at Texas.


Locke retires 19 straight, Bucs win 1-0

PITTSBURGH (AP) A lack of efficiency with his pitches was the reason Jeff Locke failed to get past the fifth inning in his previous two starts despite giving up a combined three runs.

That wasn't a problem Saturday for the Pirates' left-hander, who retired his last 19 batters.


Corbin wins in return from elbow surgery

PHOENIX (AP) With a big holiday crowd to cheer him on, Patrick Corbin was back on the mound.

And the only butterflies came before the game started.


Brewers beat Reds, push win streak to 7

CINCINNATI (AP) Jimmy Nelson was the beneficiary and victim of Milwaukee's six-run fifth inning on Saturday night.

Nelson lasted less than two innings after the Brewers' lengthy offensive eruption, but he still won his career-best third consecutive start and Milwaukee posted a seventh straight victory, 7-3 over the Cincinnati Reds.
