The San Diego Padres have agreed to terms of a one-year contract with Brad Hawpe to play first base, two people with knowledge of the deal told the AP. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal is pending Hawpe's passing a physical exam. Hawpe will replace three-time All-Star Adrian Gonzalez , who was traded to the Boston Red Sox this month. Hawpe has mostly been an outfielder in seven big league seasons, with a handful of starts at first base. He was released by Colorado in August and signed by Tampa Bay. Right-handed pitcher Ricky Nolasco signed a three-year, $26.5-million contract with the Florida Marlins.

DETROIT - The Angels won a game and gained an ace on Thursday, beating the Detroit Tigers, 3-1, in 10 innings in Comerica Park and savoring a strong start by Jered Weaver, who allowed one run and seven hits, struck out six and walked two in seven innings. J.B. Shuck sparked the winning rally in the 10th with a leadoff single off left-hander Phil Coke. Mike Trout singled to right for his eighth career four-hit game, advancing Shuck to third. Albert Pujols followed with a drive to deep center field that Austin Jackson nearly caught with a spectacular, Willie Mays-like over-the-shoulder move.

BOSTON -- Almost two years since he last played in the big leagues, veteran outfielder Brad Hawpe, who sat out most of 2012 while recovering from Tommy John surgery, buttoned up a big league jersey Saturday morning in the Angels' Fenway Park clubhouse. “It feels nice,” Hawpe, 33, said of his recall from triple-A Salt Lake. “It's been awhile.” Hawpe last played in a big league game for the San Diego Padres on June 18, 2011, a few months before elbow surgery “knocked me for a loop,” he said.

When Tampa Bay's Alex Cobb was struck in his right ear by a line drive off the bat of Kansas City's Eric Hosmer on Saturday, he became the fifth pitcher since September to be hit in the head by a batted ball. Cobb was hospitalized overnight and will be out at least a week. And though Angels reliever Kevin Jepsen says every pitcher is aware of the risks when he takes the mound, that doesn't make the replays any easier to watch. "It makes you cringe," he said. "It's tough. " Jepsen is fortunate never to have been hit, but he says it's not hard to understand why it's happening so frequently.

What a glorious place, the National League West, where no deficit is insurmountable. The Dodgers stormed back from three runs down in the seventh inning to overtake the Colorado Rockies and claimed a 4-3 victory Friday night at Dodger Stadium, extending their winning streak to six games. Are the Dodgers unstoppable or are the other teams in their division making them look that way? Three Rockies relievers -- Matt Belisle, Alan Embree and Jason Grilli -- combined to give up four runs and five hits in that fateful seventh inning, in which the Dodgers sent nine players to the plate to overturn a 3-0 deficit.

All-Star Brad Hawpe hit a game-ending double to give the Colorado Rockies an 8-7 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday and a split of the four-game series. "What a way for Brad Hawpe to leave here and head for St. Louis," Rockies Manager Jim Tracy said. "That's a very nice send-off for a class human being." Seth Smith set up Hawpe's clutch hit with a one-out single in the ninth inning against Luis Valdez (0-1), who was making his major league debut.
