There isn’t a more amusing left-side-of-the-infield duo in baseball than Adrian Beltre and Elvis Andrus of the Texas Rangers, who can often be found behaving like quarreling brothers when pop ups are hit in their direction . One will mimic the other. They’ll get in each others’ way. Or they’ll push each other around after a catch. Andrus is the younger pest and Beltre is the older eye-roller. The play these roles to a tee, and they were at it again Monday night in the Rangers’ 2-0 win over the Seattle Mariners. Only there was one new bit in their routine. Andrus caught a pop up in the seventh inning with Beltre just a few feet in front of him, miming like he was going to make the catch. Andrus laughed and appeared to say something like “excuse me” to his buddy. Then the two of them proceeded to discuss whose turf was whose. Andrus drew a line in the infield dirt with his shoe. It was like two brothers putting tape down the middle of the bedroom they share. With that, we’ll point your attention to this Internet classic that’s always worth re-watching. It’s a compilation of Beltre and Andrus goofing around with each other and it’s well worth your 64 seconds.

Lloyd McClendon’s habit of shuffling his rotation to match up his best arms with playoff contenders continued Monday. The Seattle Mariners manager pushed Felix Hernandez’s next start back two days — from Wednesday to Friday. Rather than throwing Hernandez in Wednesday’s series finale against the struggling Texas Rangers, the right-hander will get two extra days of rest — Seattle has Thursday off — before taking the mound Friday in the first game of a series against the Washington Nationals. It just so happens that Hernandez’s revised five-day rotation would put him in position to be available for the Tuesday after the regular season — meaning he could pitch the one-game wild-card matchup.

Texas Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo is scheduled for surgery to remove a bone spur from his left elbow and will miss the rest of the season. Choo was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, and the Rangers recalled outfielder Michael Choice from Triple-A Round Rock. Choice was expected to arrive in Seattle before Monday night’s game against the Mariners. He did not travel with the team to Seattle because of a virus that kept him out of Sunday’s game against Kansas City, prompting the Mariners to put him on the DL.

Just about everything is going right for the Kansas City Royals these days. The Royals played their last nine games against teams currently in last place – and they’ll play 10 of their final 33 against last-place Minnesota, Texas and Boston. Manager Ned Yost, however, is taking nothing for granted. Second-place Detroit had to fight back over the weekend just to salvage a four-game split against the Twins.

After another rough start, two-time Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum is in danger of falling out of the San Francisco Giants’ starting rotation as they make a late-season playoff push. Lincecum was roughed up in his start Saturday against Washington, lasting just 2 2/3 innings while giving up six runs, four of them earned. And that is why Giants manager Bruce Bochy is considering taking Lincecum out of the rotation, although he is still debating the topic. —The Colorado Rockies activated right-handed pitcher Christian Bergman from the 60-day disabled list and placed outfielder Michael Cuddyer on the 15-day DL.

The Kansas City Royals are on a remarkable roll and they aren’t slowing down for anybody. With their 6-3 win over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night , the Royals have now won 24 of their last 30 games, and have opened up a season-high three-game lead over the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central. Oh, and don’t look now, but they also moved to within 1 1/2 games of the Baltimore Orioles for the No. 2 seed in the American League. Kansas City hosting a playoff series at Kauffman Stadium? It could happen. As for Saturday, the Royals rode the right arm of Jeremy Guthrie, who allowed just one run over eight innings. That run actually came on his very first pitch as Shin-Soo Choo greeted him with a home run. After that, Guthrie allowed just four more hits (all singles) and one walk, en route to evening his record at 10-10. ”The first pitch was actually a pretty good pitch,” manager Ned Yost said. ”It was a fastball that was down. You’re trying to get ahead with the first pitch of the game.” Who are we to argue based on the end result?  The first three batters in Kansas City’s order — Jarrod Dyson, Omar Infante and Alex Gordon — combined to drive in all six runs, including Gordon’s solo homer in the first. Dyson put the Royals ahead for good with a bases loaded walk in the fourth. YANKEES HONOR JOE TORRE WITH CEREMONY AND VICTORY:

Friday marked the seventh anniversary of the Texas Rangers putting up 30 runs in one game against the Baltimore Orioles, so maybe we shouldn’t be too surprised that a team turned back the clock and lit up the scoreboard again. Then again, maybe we should be surprised, because who would have ever wagered on the Minnesota Twins scoring 20 runs in a game this season, let alone against the pitching-rich Detroit Tigers? Not many, probably, but baseball cares nothing about odds or what’s expected. Anything can happen on any given day, and on Friday Minnesota’s offense went bonkers in a 20-6 victory . Of course, the best part for fans who weren’t rooting for Detroit came in the eighth inning when manager Brad Ausmus turned to shortstop Andrew Romine to provide some relief for his relief pitchers. Romine, 29, had never pitched during his five-year MLB career, and his lack of experience was evident after the first three batters he faced. After Kennys Vargas greeted him with a double, Oswaldo Arcia and Trevor Plouffe clubbed back-to-back home runs to give Minnesota an even 20 and make a long night even longer for Ausmus.

A man accused of masterminding a human trafficking ring pleaded guilty Friday to U.S. Lazo is already serving a five-year prison sentence for money laundering in a Medicare fraud case and now faces up to 20 additional years behind bars. Lazo agreed to cooperate with investigators, which could reduce his prison time when he is sentenced later this year. Prosecutors say Lazo led an organization that smuggled Cubans by boat into Mexico, where they were held until ransom payments were made.
