Rays 4, Blue Jays 1
ST. PETERSBURG, FLA.
Wilson Ramos homered, six Tampa Bay relievers combined for a five-hitter and the Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays. Ryne Stanek opened the game, striking out three in two perfect innings, and was followed by Austin Pruitt (2 2/3 innings), Jonny Venters (one-third of an inning), Chaz Roe (1 1/3 innings), Jose Alvarado (1 2/3 innings) and Sergio Romo (one inning). Pruitt (2-3) allowed four hits and a run but picked up the win.
Twins 6, Tigers 4
Miguel Cabrera ruptured his left biceps tendon Tuesday night, an injury that will sideline the Detroit slugger for the rest of the season, and the Tigers lost to the Minnesota Twins. Ehire Adrianza hit his first career grand slam to help Minnesota rally.
Red Sox 6, Orioles 4
Home runs by Rafael Devers and Andrew Benintendi helped Eduardo Rodriguez win his fifth straight start, and the Boston Red Sox extended Baltimore’s losing streak to six games. Rodriguez (8-1) gave up two runs and eight hits over 5 2/3 innings to increase a career-best run of success that began on May 20 against the Orioles.
Marlins 3, Giants 1
Trevor Richards pitched six effective innings for his first major league win, helping the Miami Marlins beat the San Francisco Giants. Richards (1-3) allowed two hits in his seventh major league start. The 25-year-old right-hander struck out two and walked three. Kyle Barraclough pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save in six chances.
Phillies 5, Rockies 4
Aaron Nola struck out 10 in another dominant performance, Scott Kingery hit a three-run homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Colorado Rockies. Nola (8-2) allowed one run and four hits in 6 2/3 innings, lowering his ERA to 2.27. He has given up three runs or less in 13 of 14 starts. Seranthony Dominguez escaped a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the ninth for his third save.
Braves 8, Mets 2
Ozzie Albies hit a grand slam and Freddie Freeman homered during a six-run sixth inning, and the Atlanta Braves beat the reeling New York Mets. Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz pitched five scoreless innings, allowing two hits and striking out six, but left the game after batting in the fifth.
Padres 4, Cardinals 2
Eric Hosmer homered, San Diego’s bullpen took a perfect game into the sixth inning and the Padres beat the St. Louis Cardinals. Padres reliever Matt Strahm started the bullpen game and retired nine batters on 36 pitches, including four strikeouts. Adam Cimber (3-2) retired the next six with two strikeouts before Harrison Bader broke up the perfect game with an infield single in the sixth. Bader was promptly erased in a double play.
Brewers 4, Cubs 0
Chase Anderson pitched seven innings of one-hit ball to take advantage of some rare run support, and the Milwaukee Brewers two-hit the Chicago Cubs. Travis Shaw hit a pair of two-run doubles, and Anderson (5-5) locked it down from there to end Milwaukee’s seven-game skid against the Cubs.
Yankees 3, Nationals 0
Didi Gregorius ended a long power outage with a pair of home runs, Washington slugger Bryce Harper left in the eighth inning after he was hit by a pitch for the second time, and the New York Yankees beat the Nationals. Harper returned to Yankee Stadium for the first time in three years and fell to the ground in pain when hit on the right elbow by a 90 mph pitch from CC Sabathia (4-1) in the fifth inning.
