MLB Quick-Hitters


Outman’s Outstanding Debut: The Dodgers called up Triple-A star James Outman on Saturday, and he popped a home run in his first plate appearance. L.A. beat the Rockies (7-3), and Outman became the eighth player in franchise history to homer in his first major league at-bat.


Detmers Joins Rare CompanyAngels rookie Reid Detmers tossed an immaculate inning on Sunday against the Rangers. The Angels lost the game (5-2), but Detmers joined Sandy Koufax and Mike Fiers as the only pitchers with an immaculate inning and a no-hitter in the same season.


Mets Stay Hot: The Mets smashed the Marlins on Sunday (9-3) behind a three-hit performance from Francisco Lindor. New York (64-37) had 19 hits in all to stay hot with their sixth straight win.
