A lost Red Sox World Series ring is back on the finger of its owner, thanks to a nifty pickup by an ardent New York Yankees fan. Manhattan restaurant owner Luigi Militello could hardly believe it when he found the shiny 2013 championship ring on a restroom sink at his Luke’s Bar and Grill on Thursday night. Who would leave this here?” Militello told The Associated Press. What are the chances of this happening?” Drew Weber had dined at the restaurant earlier, it’s one of his favorite spots.

The San Francisco Giants boosted their rotation for the stretch run by acquiring right-hander Jake Peavy from the Boston Red Sox on Saturday for a pair of minor league pitchers. The 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner will start Sunday night’s series finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Giants held a half-game division lead in the NL West against their rival going into Saturday night’s middle game at AT&T Park. The Giants have plenty of familiarity with Peavy, who pitched for manager Bruce Bochy with the San Diego Padres in the playoffs in 2005-06.

Dave Dombrowski’s latest trade also felt like one of his most predictable. There was simply no way the Detroit general manager was going to sit idly by without addressing his team’s bullpen. ”We’ve been working on trying to find someone in the bullpen for an extended period,” Dombrowski said. For the month of July, at least.” The Tigers added one of the game’s better relievers in a trade earlier this week, acquiring Joakim Soria from Texas, but that may only be the beginning of a significant overhaul in the way Detroit approaches the late innings.

Yoenis Cespedes flashed his Home Run Derby form Wednesday night. The Oakland left fielder hit two homers and drove in a career-high-tying five runs, leading the A’s to a 9-7 victory against the Houston Astros at the O.co Coliseum. The question now for the A’s is whether Cespedes will be able to play Thursday in the finale of the three-game series. Cespedes, who won the All-Star Home Run Derby on July 14 for the second consecutive year, snapped a career-high-tying 25-game homerless streak, but he sprained his right thumb in his third at-bat.
