Growing up as the son of a major league ballplayer, Terry Francona knew to speak only when he was spoken to. Baseball clubhouses are more welcoming now and not just to toddlers raiding the bubble gum bin. Some of those tykes turn out to big league ballplayers themselves. According to the Baseball Almanac, 252 sons of major leaguers have made it on their own. That runs from Cubs left-hander Jack Doscher in 1903 to Roger Clemens’ son Kody, who made his debut with the Tigers last month. There are more than two dozen sons of big leaguers on AL and NL rosters this year.

The Blue Jays alone have three, including the sons of Hall of Famers Craig Biggio (Cavan) and Vladimir Guerrero (Vlad Jr.), along with Bo Bichette, whose father, Dante, was a four-time All-Star with the Rockies.

Christian Arroyo hit a two-run homer in the seventh and had three RBIs in his return from the COVID-19 injured list, powering the red-hot Boston Red Sox to a 6-3 victory over the Cleveland Guardians. Arroyo’s go-ahead homer to left-center off Bryan Shaw (3-1) gave Boston a 4-2 lead, paving the way for its fifth straight win and moving it a season-high nine games over .500. Boston carried a 6-2 advantage into the ninth, but closer Tanner Houck gave up an RBI single to rookie Steven Kwan before retiring Amed Rosario and José Ramírez back-to-back with the bases loaded.
