Monday’s other MLB games
Red Sox 2, Orioles 0, 12 innings
Brock Holt and Jackie Bradley Jr. each delivered a sacrifice fly in the 12th inning, and the Boston Red Sox limited the Baltimore Orioles to five hits in a victory. A pitching duel between Dylan Bundy and Steven Wright was ultimately decided long after both starters departed. Xander Bogaerts led off the 12th with a single against Mychal Givens (0-3), and the Red Sox went on to load the bases before Holt broke the scoreless deadlock with a fly to center. Bradley followed with a fly ball to score Rafael Devers, who had doubled. Heath Hembree (3-1) struck out the side in the 11th and Craig Kimbrel got three outs for his 21st save. Bundy gave up three hits over eight innings. He struck out seven, walked two and did not permit a runner to reach third base. Wright allowed four hits over 62/3 innings.
Rays 8, Blue Jays 4
ST. PETERSBURG, FLA.
Jake Bauers hit his first career home run to put Tampa Bay ahead in the fourth inning and the Rays went on to a victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. Bauers’ two-run homer off Sam Gaviglia after Matt Duffy’s single erased a 4-3 Toronto lead. Tampa Bay tacked on three runs in the seventh with the help of a bases-loaded throwing error by reliever John Axford. Left-hander Ryan Yarbrough, who leads the major leagues with 44 relief innings, started and pitched six innings for the Rays. Yarbrough (5-2) gave up four runs on seven hits while striking out three in his first start since May 14. Bauers, playing in his fifth major league game, got on base his first four times and scored three runs. Rookie Willy Adames, recalled earlier Monday from the minor leagues, also drove in two runs for the Rays, who won for only the second time in 11 games.

Adam Conley (2-0) tossed a scoreless inning and Kyle Barraclough pitched a flawless ninth for his third save in five chances. Andrew McCutchen and Evan Longoria each had two hits and drove in a run for the Giants. The Giants scored three runs off Wei-Yen Chen in the fifth for a 4-2 lead.
