BOSTON (AP) High-flying rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. took quite a tumble.

Acuna went sprawling after beating out an infield hit in the seventh inning, exiting with knee and lower back pain Sunday as the Atlanta Braves beat the Boston Red Sox 7-1.

"We haven't really gotten any reports except just that he's sore," manager Brian Snitker said. "He's being looked at, so we'll know more."


Kershaw scheduled to return Thursday

LOS ANGELES (AP) Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to return to the rotation on Thursday at home against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Healy helps surging Mariners sweep Twins

SEATTLE (AP) Before speaking to reporters after a 3-1 victory over the Twins, Seattle manager Scott Servais sat down, smiled and turned his cap slightly to the side.

"Colome is a serious dude," Servais said. "He's all business."

Buehler sharp as Dodgers win 8th in 10

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers plan to be careful with talented rookie right-hander Walker Buehler, but his performances thus far will tempt the team to give him more work.

Cardinals rally past slumping Pirates

PITTSBURGH (AP) Harrison Bader stepped to the plate with a chance to pull the St. Louis Cardinals even knowing the heat Pittsburgh closer Felipe Vazquez was going to send his way.
