It’s very unpredictable, catcher Jonathan Lucroy said. For me behind the plate, I don’t know where it’s going to be at. It’s a good thing, because if I don’t, a hitter definitely doesn’t.

It’s very unpredictable, catcher Jonathan Lucroy said. For me behind the plate, I don’t know where it’s going to be at. It’s a good thing, because if I don’t, a hitter definitely doesn’t. He pitches to contact and just attacks. He has a great mentality out there.
Dustin Fowler also homered and Lucroy drove in three runs to help the A’s send the Royals to their sixth straight loss and drop them to a season-worst 22 games under .500.
Muncy, who played a total of 96 games for Oakland in 2015-16, has been subbing at third base for the injured Justin Turner, who has returned from his fractured wrist but still is experiencing soreness.
Forsythe hit a solo homer off Sean Newcomb (7-2) in a three-run third to give the Dodgers the lead. He hadn’t allowed a home run in his previous 44 innings pitched.
Newcomb gave up five runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings. It was uncharacteristic to give up the long ball.
I wasn’t making the pitches I was supposed to and I was just kind of leaving them there for them to hit, Newcomb said. It all happened really fast there in the fourth inning, or whenever (third inning) they scored their three runs.
Matt Kemp hit an RBI single against his former team in the Dodgers third.
I know I’m probably not allowed to say this, but he’s probably my favorite player. So to be able to hit some balls out there to him today and to be on the same field as him, it was an honor, really.
Cave, who made his major league debut May 19 and was 1-for-10 at the plate entering Sunday the lone hit cleared the fence also singled and homered.
Chapman has been dealing with left knee tendinitis for about three weeks. The knee was wrapped with ice after he saved a game against the Los Angeles Angels on May 25. He said it probably was the most painful Friday.
But at the end of the day, it didn’t get in the way of me doing my job today, he said through a translator.
A big league-best 41-18, the Yankees have won 32 of their last 41 games and are 23 games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2012 season.
The Mets have lost seven straight and 12 of 14, and they have dropped nine consecutive home games for the first time since 2012. They are 16-34 following an 11-1 start and have just three runs in their last 51 innings.
