The MLB Report / Scores and fast facts

American League games

Minnesota 10, Kansas City 7: The Royals fell to 7-19 at home as Justin Morneau, Josh Willingham and Trevor Plouffe homered to hand Twins starter Cole De Vries his first big-league victory.

Seattle at L.A. Angels: The Angels have won five in a row and 10 of their last 12. It's the 2,000th game for Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia.

Texas at Oakland: Scott Feldman may be running out of time to stay in the Rangers' rotation. He has an 0-3 record, and the team recently signed Roy Oswalt.


National League

San Francisco 3, Chicago Cubs 2: Ryan Vogelsong won his fourth straight decision, and Buster Posey scored the go-ahead run on a double-play groundball by Joaquin Arias in the seventh inning.

L.A. Dodgers 4, Philadelphia 3: Elian Herrera hit a tiebreaking RBI single off Jonathan Papelbon in the ninth inning to lift the Dodgers. Papelbon is 15 for 15 in save opportunities, but hasn't fared as well in non-save situations.

Colorado at Arizona: The Rockies won six of seven in their homestand last week. Now they head on a road trip; Colorado is 8-15 away from home this season.


Around the horn

San Francisco Giants: The Santa Cruz County sheriff's office said it hopes to complete the bulk of an investigation into sexual assault allegations involving slugger Pablo Sandoval by the end of this week, then determine whether to seek charges.

MLB Draft: The Houston Astros have selected 17-year-old shortstop Carlos Correa with the No. 1 pick, making him the highest selection ever to come from Puerto Rico. Correa has an incredibly strong arm and terrific instincts defensively, and the Astros might have found their shortstop of the future.
