AROUND THE HORN | Wednesday’s other MLB games
Astros 3, Orioles 2
Josh Reddick had three hits and Alex Bregman’s tiebreaking RBI single in the seventh inning lifted the Astros to a three-game sweep. Reddick, who started the season 1 for 11, singled three times on Wednesday after hitting a two-run homer and a grand slam in his last two at-bats on Tuesday night.
White Sox 4, Blue Jays 3
Matt Davidson hit his fourth home run of the season and Jose Abreu added a tiebreaking solo shot in the eighth inning and the White Sox snapped the Blue Jays’ four-game win streak.
Yankees 7, Rays 2
Giancarlo Stanton turned boos to cheers with his first Yankee Stadium home run in pinstripes, an emphatic go-ahead drive in the first inning that led New York over Tampa Bay to complete a two-game sweep. Stanton turned on a high slider from Blake Snell (0-1), driving the ball 458 feet to left field at 117.9 mph for a two-run homer.
Cardinals 6, Brewers 0
Carlos Martinez pitched into the ninth inning and struck out 10, Yadier Molina homered and the Cardinals beat the error-prone Brewers. Leadoff batter Dexter Fowler scored twice in the first three innings for the Cardinals.
Braves 7, Nationals 1
Mike Foltynewicz outpitched Max Scherzer, Preston Tucker hit a three-run homer and the Braves beat the Nationals. Foltynewicz (1-0) allowed four hits, one run and two walks with eight strikeouts in 51/3 innings.
Mets 4, Phillies 2
Yoenis Cespedes homered, Amed Rosario hit a two-run triple and the Mets’ bullpen faced the minimum batters over five scoreless innings as New York downed Philadelphia. New York swept a weather-shortened two-game series.
Diamondbacks 3, Dodgers 0
Patrick Corbin shut out the Los Angeles Dodgers on one hit over 71/3 innings, striking out a career-high 12 in the Arizona Diamondbacks’ win. The Diamondbacks swept the three-game series and won their ninth straight game against the Dodgers, going back to a pair of three-game series sweeps last season. Corbin earned his first win over the Dodgers since 2013. Corbin (2-0) retired 14 batters in a row to start the game, eight on strikeouts. The Dodgers struggled to make solid contact, and it took Matt Kemp’s bloop double with two outs in the fifth to break up Corbin’s no-hit bid.
Giants 10, Mariners 1
Pablo Sandoval splashed a three-run homer into McCovey Cove while making a rare start, Johnny Cueto earned his first win of the season and the Giants jumped all over Seattle ace Felix Hernandez. Brandon Belt, Brandon Crawford and Gorkys Hernandez also homered as the Giants got their bats going at last to back Cueto (1-0).
