CHICAGO (AP) — Fiercely energetic Tim Anderson spiked his bat to celebrate a home run and Kansas City's Brad Keller responded by drilling him with a fastball, setting off a benches-clearing fracas in the Royals' 4-3, 10-inning victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday.Anderson tossed his bat toward the White Sox dugout following his two-run drive in the fourth inning. Keller hit him in the buttocks with his first pitch leading off the sixth.Anderson, the AL's leading hitter, was restrained by Royals catcher Martin Maldonado but kept jawing with Keller on the way to first base. The dugouts and bullpens emptied, though no punches appeared to be thrown. White Sox manager Rick Renteria and Royals bench coach Dale Sveum shoved each other, and the usually mild-mannered Renteria was particularly animated.There were four ejections — Anderson, Keller, Renteria and Sveum.Hunter Dozier led off the 10th with a tiebreaking homer against Nate Jones (0-1).

NEW YORK (AP) — Boston Red Sox pitcher David Price thinks Major League Baseball made a mistake by having just 10 games Monday on Jackie Robinson Day."Hey @mlb every year on April 15th we celebrate Jackie Robinson Day," Price tweeted Wednesday. "EVERYONE plays on that day next year deal? No one should have an off day let alone 10 teams!!"African American players dropped from 18 percent of the majors leagues in 1991 to 7.7 percent in 2017, then rose to 8.4 percent in 2018, according to The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at Central Florida. Price, who won the 2012 AL Cy Young Award, thinks more efforts on Jackie Robinson Day are needed.Jackie Robinson broke the major league color barrier for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947."1/3 of @mlb teams had an off day on Jackie Robinson day," tweeted Price, who is black.

Dustin Pedroia2BRed SoxOld Hoss
NEW YORK (AP) — Dustin Pedroia's painful left knee forced him out of Wednesday night's 5-3 loss to the Yankees after 1 1/2 innings, and the Boston second baseman planned to remain in New York for an examination rather than travel with the team to Tampa Bay.The 2008 AL MVP was hurt when he fouled off an 0-1 pitch from J.A. Happ in the second inning, Red Sox manager Alex Cora said."I was surprised that he came up to me and told me that, but at least he was honest," Cora said. "He was down. I haven't seen him like that. Hopefully, it's nothing serious, and it's something that he just got scared."Eduardo Núñez replaced Pedroia for the bottom half.Pedroia was activated from the injured list April 9 and is 2 for 20 at the plate.He has been slowed since a slide into his surgically repaired left knee at second base by Baltimore's Manny Machado on April 21, 2017. Dr. Riley Williams III of the Hospital for Special Surgery operated on Pedroia's left knee on Oct. 25, 2017, and Pedroia was limited to three big league games in 2018, from May 26-29.Cora said Pedroia would not be examined by the surgeon but by another doctor.Pedroia, 35, had not played the field since Saturday, and Cora said Pedroia also has been feeling ill. The Red Sox play three games on artificial turf at Tama Bay starting Friday, so another trip to the injured list is possible.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics placed pitcher Marco Estrada on the 10-day injured list because of a lumbar strain, one day after a second consecutive shaky outing.Estrada allowed seven runs and walked three in 3 1/3 innings in Tuesday night's loss to the Houston Astros. It was the second straight start that Estrada failed to make it past the fourth."He's had some back and hip things kind of in concert giving him a little trouble right now," A's manager Bob Melvin said. "He's had that in the past. We knew that 30-plus starts were probably not going to be realistic, and from time to time that this is something we were going to have to do with him. We knew all that going in."Estrada signed a $4 million, one-year contract with Oakland in the offseason and has been second in Melvin's rotation. The A's are winless in his five starts.Right-hander Chris Bassitt was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas and is expected to take Estrada's place in the rotation.__More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/tag/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A remarkable baseball streak ended Wednesday when Joey Votto innocuously popped out to first base.The slugger somehow had made 6,827 plate appearances over 13 seasons with the Reds without ever popping out to first. He finally did it in Cincinnati's 3-2 loss at Dodger Stadium, fouling out to Cody Bellinger to end the eighth.Votto had played 1,591 games in a career that began in late 2007 without ever popping up to first.The six-time All-Star first baseman is a career .310 hitter, always showing strong plate discipline and rarely wasting at-bats. Votto had popped up only 88 previous times in his career, including only seven popups from 2010-18.Dodgers reliever Pedro Baez induced the popup on a belt-high 3-1 outside changeup.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

DETROIT (AP) — Detroit's Matt Moore is expected to miss the rest of the season after right knee surgery, the latest setback for the left-hander who was once one of the game's rising stars.The 29-year-old Moore signed with the Tigers in the offseason and did not allow a run in 10 innings this year, but he hurt his knee April 6 while trying to field a bunt.Moore said last weekend he had a tear in his meniscus, but the severity wasn't clear. Manager Ron Gardenhire provided more information Wednesday."He had the surgery, and they had to fix some things up in there, and he's out for the year," Gardenhire said.Moore was an All-Star in 2013 with Tampa Bay, but Tommy John surgery cost him almost all of 2014, and he hasn't been very effective since.

NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees ace Luis Severino says he hurt his lat muscle warming up before his first scheduled spring training start March 5, though New York's medical staff did not diagnose the injury until April.When Severino first got hurt, the Yankees said the injury was right shoulder inflammation. After Severino threw on flat ground April 6 and felt like he had not progressed, the Yankees sent him for additional tests and announced the injury to the latissimus dorsi muscle in his back April 9.General manager Brian Cashman said last week he didn't know "how a lat strain during his rehab process could have occurred." Severino maintains the issue predated the rehab."I know something was going on," Severino said Wednesday.New York's updated timetable from last week estimated Severino could resume throwing around May 21.Catcher Gary Sánchez hopes to play in Sunday's homestand finale against Kansas City, the first day he is eligible to be activated from the injured list. Sánchez, recovering from a strained left calf, ran Wednesday for the second straight day and intends to resume outdoor batting practice Thursday.Giancarlo Stanton, who hasn't played since March 31 because of a strained left biceps, started hitting off a machine Tuesday. Manager Aaron Boone said it is too soon to determine whether Stanton can return during the West Coast trip that starts Monday.New York has 12 players on the injured list.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

He pitched in four games this season, getting one save and allowing one run in four innings for the NL East champs.Minus Vizcaino, there's likely to be further speculation the Braves might be interested in Craig Kimbrel — their former closer played for the World Series champion Boston Red Sox last season, became a free agent and hasn't signed with anyone.The 28-year-old Vizcaino was put on the 10-day injured list a few days ago with right shoulder inflammation. A.J. Minter had taken over the closer's role, but has struggled.Vizcaino has often been injured during his two stints with the club. He had a $4.8 million, one-year contractDr. David Altchek performed the surgery. He cleaned up Vizcaino's labrum and removed scar tissue from the right shoulder joint.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
