Former major league pitcher Curt Schilling has revealed that he is battling mouth cancer and he blames 30 years of chewing tobacco use.

Few pitchers have been worse in the league this season than Minnesota's Ricky Nolasco. He tries to reverse his fortunes on Wednesday when the Twins continue a three-game set with the Cleveland Indians at Target Field.

The Baltimore Orioles take aim at their first road sweep of the Chicago White Sox in over 19 years on Wednesday night in the finale of a three-game set.

The Los Angeles Angels try to further their lead atop the American League West standings on Wednesday night with a third straight victory as they resume a four-game set with the Boston Red Sox.

The San Francisco Giants and the Chicago Cubs played 4 1/2 innings in 6 hours, 9 minutes. And when the game was finally called early Wednesday morning, they still hoped to play some more.

The back-to-back, two-out doubles by Brennan Boesch and Chris Iannetta in the top of the ninth inning, the white-knuckle save by closer Huston Street in the bottom of the ninth ... none of it would have been possible if not for the Paul Bunyan-like feat of the shortest guy on the team.

There are times Carl Crawford can offer reminders of how he once landed a $142 million contract.

Ian Kennedy is starting to feel more comfortable after a recent oblique injury. He just didn't show it against the first-place Dodgers.

Bruce Bochy probably had a lot more he wanted to say after a 4½-hour wait to resume a game Tuesday night — and Wednesday morning — proved futile.
