DENVER (AP) -- The Colorado Rockies and Cincinnati Reds swapped three pitchers in a four-player trade Wednesday.
The Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks won their fourth straight Japan Series title on Wednesday, sweeping Tokyo's Yomiuri Giants in four games in the best-of-seven series. The Hawks won the clinching game 4-1 in the southwestern city of Fukuoka after taking the first three by the mostly one-sided scores of 13-2, 5-1 and 4-0. The Hawks won last season the same way, taking four straight from the Giants in the season-ending series.
