LOS ANGELES — World Series MVP Corey Seager will miss at least a few weeks for the Los Angeles Dodgers after breaking a bone in his right hand.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said the star shortstop does not need surgery on his broken fifth metacarpal – the bone closest to the palm in his pinky finger. Seager’s hand was in a splint and a wrap Sunday morning while he chatted with his agent, Scott Boras, in the Dodger Stadium stands before the defending champions’ series finale against Miami.

“I think we dodged a bullet,” Roberts said. “No surgery required. He’s in a splint, and we’re just going to let it heal. With a broken hand, the timeline is pretty vague, so that’s where it’s at.”

Roberts said the “floor” for Seager’s return likely was four weeks, but it was impossible to assign a definite timetable.

“I don’t know,” Roberts said. “You’ve just got to let it happen.”

Seager was hit by a pitch from Miami’s Ross Detwiler in the fifth inning of Los Angeles’ 7-0 victory Saturday night. The Dodgers placed Seager on the 10-day injured list Sunday and recalled catcher Keibert Ruiz from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Seager became the 13th player on Los Angeles’ dismaying injured list, joining regular position players Cody Bellinger, AJ Pollock and Zach McKinstry. They’ve already lost powerful starter Dustin May and infielder Edwin Ríos for the entire season.


CUBS 5, TIGERS 1: Kyle Hendricks took a shutout into the ninth inning and Chicago won in Detroit.

Hendricks (3-4) allowed eight hits and struck out a season-high eight in eight-plus innings without allowing a walk. He left after Harold Castro and Miguel Cabrera started the ninth with singles.

Dan Winkler appeared to get Jonathan Schoop to hit into a game-ending double play with runners on the corners, but the call at first was overturned after a review, allowing Detroit to score its only run.

RAYS 7, METS 1: Manuel Margot, Willy Adames and Brandon Lowe homered off Marcus Stroman, leading Tampa Bay over New York  for a three-game sweep in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Two-run homers by Margot in the fourth and by Adames in the fifth built a 4-0 lead, and Lowe led off the sixth with his seventh home run this season.

Ji-Man Choi had three hits, including an eighth-inning RBI double, in his first game after recovering from arthroscopic right knee surgery.

Josh Fleming (3-3) allowed up one hit in five scoreless innings, an infield single by Jeff McNeil leading off the game.

ORIOLES 10, YANKEES 6: Maikel Franco homered and drove in three runs, rookie Bruce Zimmermann came out of the bullpen to hold down the Yankees and Baltimore avoided a three-game sweep at home.

Aaron Judge homered for the third straight game and went 6 for 10 with four home runs and five RBI in the series.

But Jordan Montgomery failed to hold leads of 4-0 in the first inning and 5-2 in the third, and New York dropped to 1-6 this season when trying to complete a series sweep.

Baltimore is 6-15 at Camden Yards, the worst home record in the major leagues.

GIANTS 4, PIRATES 1: Alex Wood pitched six innings while keeping his perfect record intact and Mike Yastrzemski hit a game-sealing home run as San Francisco won in Pittsburgh.

Wood (5-0) gave up one run while scattering eight hits. He struck out six and walked one as NL West-leading San Francisco gained a split of the four-game series.

It has been a resurgent season for Wood, who went a combined 1-4 with a 5.96 ERA in 2019 and 2020 with the Cincinnati Reds and Los Angeles Dodgers while hampered by back problems.

Yastrzemski’s two-run homer to right-center field in the ninth off David Bednar extended the Giants’ lead to 4-1. Yastrzemski returned to the lineup after missing Saturday’s game with side soreness.

ASTROS 6, RANGERS 2: Chas McCormick had a two-run single as part of a four-run eighth, Lance McCullers Jr. threw six scoreless innings and Houston won its sixth straight, beating the Rangers in Houston.

Houston loaded the bases with one out in the eighth on singles by José Altuve, Carlos Correa and Alex Bregman. Yuli Gurriel hit a sacrifice fly to right off Joely Rodríguez (1-2). After Kyle Tucker walked, McCormick singled to left before Myles Straw capped the inning with an RBI single.

Brooks Raley (2-2) struck out the side in the eighth.

BREWERS 10, BRAVES 9: Freddy Peralta struck out eight over six scoreless innings, Avisail Garcia homered and Milwaukee blew most of an 8-0 lead before holding on to beat Atlanta in Milwaukee.

It nearly fell apart for Milwaukee after J.P. Feyereisen relieved Peralta to start the seventh. He retired one batter before allowed two walks and two infield singles to make it 8-2. Brent Suter came in and, after two fielder’s-choice grounders that resulted in zero outs, surrendered a grand slam to center by NL MVP Freddie Freeman that made it 8-7.

The Brewers shook off their highest-scoring inning by an opponent this season and got some insurance with Lorenzo Cain’s two-run single in the seventh. The Braves added a run in the eighth against Devin Williams and another in the ninth against Josh Hader, who struck out William Contreras for his ninth save.

WHITE SOX 4, ROYALS 3: Wade Davis bounced a wild pitch that allowed José Abreu to dash home with the game-ending run, and Chicago rallied in the ninth inning to win at home.

Kansas City led 3-2 when Tim Anderson doubled off Davis (0-2) leading off the ninth.

Adam Eaton sacrificed and, with the infield in, Yoán Moncada lined a run-scoring single to center. Abreu was hit just above the left elbow by an 82 mph knuckle-curve.

Yermín Mercedes singled sharply to right and Whit Merrifield, a second baseman making his second appearance in right field this season, made a one-hop throw to catcher Cam Gallagher. Moncada, sliding headfirst, was tagged out near the left shoulder.

ATHLETICS 7, TWINS 6: Matt Chapman had three hits and three RBI and Ramón Laureano scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch in the ninth inning as Oakland won in Minneapolis.

Laureano hit a one-out single off reliever Taylor Rogers (0-2) in the ninth. Matt Olson followed with a grounder back to the mound, but Rogers’ throw skipped off the glove of third baseman Josh Donaldson, who was covering second due to an infield shift.

Laureano advanced to third on the play and scored when Chapman struck out, as the third strike skipped to the backstop.

Lou Trivino (2-1) got four outs to earn the victory for the A’s, who went 4-2 on their trip to Boston and Target Field.

BLUE JAYS 10, PHILLIES 8: The injury-depleted Philadelphia Phillies lost a game, another player and their temper.

Television cameras showed a confrontation in the dugout between Phillies Manager Joe Girardi and second baseman Jean Segura during Sunday’s 10-8 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays in Dunedin, Florida.

Segura committed two errors. One miscue came in the first inning when Segura missed played a soft one-hopper by Grichuk.

“The bench conversion meant for the bench,” said Girardi, who was asked about a half-dozen times about the incident. “You can ask all you want, you got everything you’re going to get about it. I’m done with it.”

NATIONALS 3, DIAMONDBACKS 0: Erick Fedde pitched seven scoreless innings, Yadiel Hernandez hit a go-ahead, pinch-hit homer and Washington won in Phoenix.

Fedde (3-4) had his best outing of the year, using 97 pitches to navigate seven innings while allowing just three hits and striking out four.

With the game scoreless, Fedde walked Stephen Vogt to start the seventh but got the next batter, Domingo Leyba, to ground into a double play.

Hernandez led off the eighth with a home run that curved just inside the left- field foul pole. The Nationals followed his second homer of the year with three more hits and two more runs in the inning, including an RBI double from Trea Turner and an RBI single by Kyle Schwarber.

MARLINS 3, DODGERS 2: Adam Duvall hit a three-run homer and then threw out Mookie Betts at the plate during a busy fifth inning, and Miami won in Los Angeles.

Pablo López gave up seven hits and two runs over five innings in his first victory of the season for the Marlins, who won for just the third time in nine games.

Miami got all of its offense from Duvall’s second three-run homer in three days at Dodger Stadium. López and the Marlins’ bullpen then barely held off a Dodgers lineup using several backups in the absence of a few key bats for the injury-riddled club.

MARINERS 3, INDIANS 2: Mitch Haniger hit two doubles and Seattle snapped Shane Bieber’s record strikeout streak, beating visiting Cleveland.

Bieber (4-3) had fanned at least eight in 20 straight games, but the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner fell short with seven. He was pulled after issuing his fourth walk, and finished his shortest outing of the season at 4 2/3 innings trailing 3-0.

The victory was Seattle’s third straight following a season-high five-game losing streak. Cleveland has lost three in a row.

Seven Mariners pitchers combined for 13 strikeouts. Opener Robert Dugger went three innings and Paul Sewald (1-0) pitched the next two to pick up his first win since 2019.

PADRES 5, CARDINALS 3: Rookie Ivan Castillo had a pinch RBI single for his first big league hit to cap a four-run rally in the fourth inning and San Diego, bolstered by minor leaguers during a COVID-19 outbreak, beat NL Central-leading St. Louis for a three-game sweep at home.
