Yankees LHP Francisco Rondon, designated for assignment on Frida

OAKLAND, Calif. Shayne Corson Jersey . -- The Oakland Athletics acquired catcher Kurt Suzuki from the Washington Nationals on Friday. The move boosts an injury situation at the position, bringing back a former fan favourite just more than a year after trading him. The As are sending Class A starter Dakota Bacus to the Nationals in the swap, while Washington is paying $995,000 to Oakland as its portion remaining on Suzukis 2013 salary. He left Chicago where the Nationals were playing and was set to join Oakland in Baltimore for a weekend series with the Orioles. "It feels good," Suzuki said in the As clubhouse. "Im shocked to say the least. I mean I couldnt be happier to come back where it all started and help this team get into the playoffs." He did, however, like playing in Washington. That made leaving a little bit more difficult. "Its bittersweet," Suzuki said. "I wouldnt say glad for a change of scenery. I enjoyed my time there. Send to me to a place with a chance to win, and Im all in." The defending AL West champion As began the day 2 1/2 games back of Texas in the division race. Washington didnt intend on using Suzuki much down the stretch. "With a healthy Wilson Ramos ... playing fairly well, it was going to cut into Suzukis playing time," manager Davey Johnson said in Kansas City. "(Suzuki) is a No. 1 catcher. He needs an opportunity to play every day, and they really have a need in Oakland." Selected by the As in the second round of the 2004 draft, Suzuki spent parts of the past two seasons with Washington after six in Oakland. Hes batting .222 with three homers and 25 RBIs in 79 games. Suzuki, originally traded to the Nationals on Aug. 3, 2012, fills a need for the pennant race. John Jaso has a concussion and Derek Norris broke his left big toe Tuesday, and was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday. The move is retroactive to Wednesday. "Hes terrific," As manager Bob Melvin said of Suzuki. "The tough part about replacing a catcher as far along as the season we are, is the transition period with the pitchers. "So, this one is an easy one. Hes knows most of our guys -- a team leader, always has been. I dont know if the front office could get a better guy for us." Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann said, "He was a good teammate, a great catcher and I wish him the best. Not having him around is going to be tough." Suzuki is expected to start for Oakland on Saturday. Norris was batting .232 with eight homers and 26 RBIs. Jaso could miss the remainder of the season with lingering concussion symptoms. He took a ball off his mask July 24 at Houston and complained of a headache. Initially, Jaso was placed on the seven-day concussion list the following day, then transferred to the 15-day disabled list on Aug. 8. Pittsburgh-based concussion expert Dr. Micky Collins doesnt expect the concussion to end his career. Jaso is batting .271 with three homers and 21 RBIs in 70 games.

Kerry, Two nights after the Scott-Eriksson incident in Buffalo, the Bruins returned home to play San Jose. In that game, Zdeno Chara put a check on Tommy Wingels that clearly targeted his head. NEW YORK -- Daniel Murphy emphatically flipped his bat to the ground while he ran to first on his RBI single to centre field. Take that Brett Gardner. Murphy had the go-ahead hit in the eighth after being denied a homer by Gardner two innings earlier, and the New York Mets rallied to beat the rival Yankees 2-1 Monday night for their second straight home win after losing eight in a row. "I was fairly angry after he took that from us," Murphy said. David Wright hit his first home run at Citi Field this year leading off the seventh. Murphy came through against David Robertson (3-1) to hand the Yankees their first loss in 23 games when leading after six innings. Murphys drive to left-centre in the sixth was caught above the wall by Gardner to end the inning. The Yankees also threw out a runner at home plate in the eighth just before Murphy singled to centre field. Brandon Lyon (2-2) pitched a scoreless eighth in relief of an impressive Jonathon Niese. Bobby Parnell pitched the ninth for his eighth save. His first save against the Yankees was a coming of age of sorts in manager Terry Collins opinion. "If youre going to pitch in this city and youre going to be a closer in this city youve got to pitch in big, big-time situations," Collins said. "This isnt a playoff game but this is the Subway Series and this means a lot to a lot of people." With the Mets entering at 11 games under .500 and the Yankees playing without several of their injured All-Stars, the Subway Series seemed to have lost much of its lustre. There were plenty of empty seats throughout Citi Field and the 32,911 fans were awfully quiet for a game between these clubs. That could change come Tuesday night, when the Mets send young ace Matt Harvey to the mound against the Yankees most consistent starter, Hiroki Kuroda, in the second of four straight games between the teams. "We Harv going tomorrow, it provides us some momentum," Wright said. "If were going to climb our way back into the thing and start heading towards .500 were going to have to win these close games ... hopefully we can ride this momentum into tomorrow with Matts start." Niese and Phil Hughes showed they could be pretty good, too. Both pitchers are having inconsistent seasons but they worked quickly into the sixth inning, with the game scoreless. The Yankees took the lead in the sixth when left fielder Lucas Duda came up short on a diving attempt at Gardners opposite-field liner. Jaden Schwartz Blues Jersey. . The ball scooted past Duda and Gardner raced into third base with a triple. Jayson Nix followed with a single that dropped just in front of charging right fielder Mike Baxter for a 1-0 lead. Gardner got off to a tough start Monday in the oddly angled centre field. He took his eye off Wrights drive to check for the section of the wall in front of the Mets bullpen that is a chain link fence, and it went for a first-inning triple. There was no looking back the next time. With Niese on first after his second single of the night, Murphy sent a fly that Gardner tracked to the wall. He jumped in front of the 385-foot marker and caught the ball above the fence. "I didnt think it was hit as good as it showed," Gardner said. "I didnt realize it was going out." Niese got Gardner to ground out with runners on second and third to end a threat in the seventh. Wright fell behind 0-2 leading off the seventh before hitting a full-count pitch into the left-centre stands for his seventh homer. "One of the big things is what David was able to do because the air couldve been taken out of us," Murphy said of Wrights homer coming an inning after Murphy lost his to Gardners catch. Baxter doubled with one out in the eighth, pinch-hitter Jordany Valdespin walked and they moved up on Chris Stewarts passed ball. With the infield playing in, Ruben Tejada hit a grounder to second baseman Robinson Cano, who snapped a throw home. Stewart made a sweep tag on Baxters back as he tried to reach his hand out to touch the plate. With two outs, Murphy followed with a single. "I did a terrible job. I didnt have command of anything," Robertson said. "I kept getting behind in the count, I couldnt throw any first pitch strikes. It was really tough, frustrating." Niese allowed eight hits and one run in seven innings. Hughes pitched seven, too, yielding one run and four hits in seven. He struck out six and walked none.
