Mariners starter Wade LeBlanc (2-0) allowed two runs and four hits in five innings.

jets_041He loaded the bases in the fifth but struck out Justin Upton to escape unscathed.

(LeBlanc) gives you a different look every pitch. He moves the fastball around, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. Reminds me of the way Jamie Moyer used to pitch. He takes enough off and keeps guys off balance. We had some opportunities but he made some pitches.

Cruz homered leading off the fourth. Kyle Seager followed with a single and Healy launched a drive over the left-field fence to give the Mariners a 5-2 lead.

Trout cut the margin to two with his second homer of the game, but Edwin Diaz pitched a clean ninth for his major league-best 24th save in 27 chances.

Trout and Pujols homered in the first before Cruz tied it in the bottom half with a two-run shot to center.

Cubs: Maddon said RHP Yu Darvish (right triceps tendinitis) is scheduled to throw a bullpen in Milwaukee on Tuesday, as long as there wasn’t any kind of negativity while Darvish played catch Monday.

Red Sox: 2B Dustin Pedroia (knee), limited to 13 plate appearances this season, worked out in the Camden Yards training room but has not yet resumed baseball activities. Cora offered no timetable for the return of the four-time All-Star. … LHP Drew Pomeranz (biceps) threw Sunday, but woke up with a stiff neck Monday that could perhaps delay his return from the DL. … RHP Tyler Thornburg (shoulder) felt great after pitching one scoreless inning for Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday, Cora said. Thornburg will next pitch for Pawtucket on Thursday.

Orioles: All-Star closer Zach Britton was activated from the disabled list, six months after undergoing surgery on his torn right Achilles tendon. … Machado sat out with an illness that has been making its way around the Baltimore clubhouse. I could tell he was starting to get it yesterday, said Showalter, who has been battling the same malady. … With the return of Britton, Baltimore placed RHP Pedro Araujo on the 10-day disabled list with a right elbow sprain and transferred OF Colby Rasmus to the 60-day DL.

Red Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (7-1, 3.68 ERA) started his professional career in the Orioles organization, and now he’s won a career-high four straight starts heading into Tuesday night’s game against his former team.

The Patriots are the greatest team in NFL history. We could go down the list of achievements, but you can use Google for that. 

jets_042However, it has become increasingly clear that the winning has come with a price.

Former Pats defensive end Cassius Marsh, who’s now with the 49ers, recently told Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle how glad he was to be in San Francisco because the Patriots don’t have fun.

That killed me, Peter said. That’s when I decided enough was enough.

That was 2007, a few years after he retired from an NFL career that began in a swirl of controversy when he signed as a free agent with the Giants in 1996. Originally a fifth-round draft pick of the Bill Parcells Patriots, Peter was waived before the start of training camp after New England received a flood of criticism for drafting someone with a troubled history.

Peter, who blames most of those problems on alcohol abuse, isn’t shy talking about his past, but adds, Some of it was true and some of it wasn’t.

Torres was frustrated enough that he said something to the ump, but then he immediately went back to focusing on the task at hand.

I think it’s a ball, but the umpire called a strike, Torres said. I don’t control that. I just take a breath and stay focused and try to do my job.

Torres worked the count to 2-2, then fouled off a 94-mph fastball that was in the same spot as the 1-0 strike.

And then this rising star showed his greatness once again by lining a base-hit to right field, Andujar raced home from second and the Yankees had a 6-5, 10-inning walk-off win over the reigning champs in a game in which they trailed by two heading to the bottom of the ninth.

You can feel (Torres) really just kind of slow it down and control the moment, and that’s something that’s stood out to me about him since he’s got here really, Boone said. And Peacock’s making pitches against him. Spoil, spoil, long at-bat where he’s on pitches where Peacock’s executing.
