NEW YORK (AP) Major League Baseball is reviewing Bryce Harper's rant at an umpire, trying to determine whether the Philadelphia Phillies star should be disciplined.

Sale remains winless, Tigers sweep DH

Sale struck out 10, but it wasn't enough as Detroit beat Boston 7-4 to start the Tigers' first doubleheader sweep at Fenway Park since August 1965. Spencer Turnbull (1-2) pitched five shutout innings for his first major league win, leading the Tigers to a 4-2 victory in the nightcap that left the Red Sox at 9-15.

SAN DIEGO (AP) Austin Hedges' unusual two-run home run came with an assist from Mariners center fielder Mallex Smith.

HOUSTON (AP) After losing three straight games following tough first innings by his starters, Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch thought his team was in for another long night on Tuesday after Wade Miley allowed three runs in the first.
