    Phillies acquire Gibson, Kennedy in trade with Rangers

    The Philadelphia Phillies acquired pitchers Kyle Gibson and Ian Kennedy, bolstering their staff in a deadline trade Friday in which they got the Texas Rangers' top starter and closer in exchange for rookie right-hander Spencer Howard and two other pitching prospects. Texas also sent pitching prospect Hans Crouse, a second-round draft pick four years ago, and cash to the Phillies. Howard (0-2, 5.72 ERA), who was Philadelphia’s second-round pick in 2017, is going to Texas with right-handers Kevin Gowdy and Josh Gessner.

    Heim's second 2-run HR in 10th lifts Rangers over Mariners

    Switch-hitting Jonah Heim hit his second two-run homer of the game in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Texas Rangers a 5-4 win over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday night. Heim, who homered from both sides of the plate, launched his left-handed shot in the 10th off Diego Castillo (2-5), who was acquired Thursday from Tampa Bay and hadn’t given up a run in his previous 11 outings. “I asked (Rangers manager Chris Woodward) if I should bunt or hit a homer,” said Heim, a 25-year-old rookie acquired from Oakland in February for veteran shortstop Elvis Andrus.
