SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Infielder Eduardo Nunez was traded from the San Francisco Giants to the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night for minor league right-handers Shaun Anderson and Gregory Santos. The deal was finalized during San Francisco’s 11-3 win over Pittsburgh and announced after the game. “It’s exciting,” Nunez said while standing outside of manager Bruce Bochy’s office. “You’re going to go (play) for a championship.

The infielder, who was hit by a pitch on the left elbow earlier in the game, was shown on television

SEATTLE — Guillermo Heredia provided the early punch with a home run, then turned an extra 90 feet into the winning run for the Seattle Mariners some four hours later. Heredia went from first to third on a wild pitch and then came home when Jean Segura rolled an RBI single up the middle with two outs in the 13th inning to cap a two-run rally and give the Mariners a 6-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox in a game that ended early Wednesday morning. “In my opinion, the biggest play in the game was him going from first to third on the wild pitch, keeping his up head up there and taking the extra base, which allowed him to score the winning run,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “A lot of crazy

Tyler Beede was supposed to start Sacramento’s matinee tilt on Monday in Tacoma, but he was scratched. But not for the reason Giants fans have been hoping for. The top pitching prospect hasn’t been called up. The 24-year-old Beede was scratched after he strained his groin while warming up for the start. Kraig Sitton started in Beede’s place. In 19 starts with the River Cats this season, Beede has a 4.79 ERA and 83 strikeouts in 109 innings pitched. Beede, the 2014 1st round pick out of Vanderbilt, entered the season as the No. 89 prospect in all of baseball according to Baseball America, but fell out of the Top 100 in the Midseason update.
