MLB round-up: 8 run innings lift O’s past Yankees

Pinch hitter Gunnar Henderson gave the go-ahead, two-run double in Baltimore’s eight-run seventh inning as the Orioles stormed back for a 9-6 victory over the host New York Yankees Wednesday night.

The Orioles won for the 10th time in 14 games by scoring five of their runs in the seventh off Nestor Cortes and Jimmy Cordero (3-2) before one out was recorded. The first six batters reached base, and Adam Frazier struck out Cortes with a three-run homer that fell to the right field post.

New York’s Gleyber Torres struck out in straight hits in the third and fifth innings for the Yankees, who saw their five-game hitting streak snapped. Cortes allowed four runs on five hits in over six innings.

Mike Baumann (4-0) pitched a 1-2-3 sixth before Baltimore’s biggest inning this season. Felix Bautista made two in the ninth for his 12th save in 16 chances.

Ranger 3, Pirates 2

Marcus Semien struck out in a three-run first inning as visiting Texas outscored Pittsburgh in the rubber game of a three-game series.

Josh Jung added an RBI double for the Rangers, who won five of six. Texas starter Martin Perez (6-1) gave up two runs and six hits in seven innings, and Will Smith had his first career five-out save, his ninth overall this season.

Jason Delay posted an RBI single for the Pirates, who lost four for five. Pittsburgh starter Johan Oviedo (3-4) allowed three runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings.

Mariners 6, A’s 1

Bryce Miller continued the stellar start to his major league career with six scoreless innings of two-hit ball as Seattle defeated visiting Oakland, which lost its seventh straight game.

Miller (3-1) has made quality starts in all five of his outings since being called up on May 2. Teoscar Hernandez went home for the Mariners, who won the first three games of the four-game series.

A’s lefty Ken Waldichuk (1-4) gave up five runs on eight hits in 2 2/3 innings. Aledmys Diaz had two hits and an RBI for Oakland.

Cubs 4, Mets 2

Marcus Stroman allowed two runs in a season-high eight innings for his ninth quality start in 11 games this season as host Chicago defeated New York.

The Cubs’ Mike Tauchman had two hits, including a game-tying single that highlighted a three-run third inning. Stroman (4-4) allowed only Francisco Alvarez’s double homer and New York’s three other hits.

Nico Hoerner hit a solo homer in the sixth inning for Chicago. Mark Leiter Jr. pitched a perfect ninth inning to record his second save. New York’s Kodai Senga (4-3) allowed three runs on six hits and five walks over five innings.

Angels 7, Red Sox 3

Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani and Zach Neto homered, Tyler Anderson pitched six strong innings, and Los Angeles completed a three-game sweep against Boston in Anaheim, California.

Trout and Ohtani scored in the same game for the 26th time. Trout hit his 362nd career long ball, moving him past Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio and 85th on the all-time list.

Anderson (2-0) gave up one run on five hits. Red Sox starter James Paxton (1-1) retired the Angels in order in the first inning, including strikeouts by Trout and Ohtani, but gave up four runs in the second and Ohtani’s homer in the third.

Brewer 4, Astros 0

Adrian Houser allowed two hits in 5 1/3 innings to help Milwaukee win against visiting Houston in the rubber game of a three-game series.

Houser (1-0) struck three and walked one before Joel Payamps relieved him in the sixth and backed out of a jam. Willy Adames, Owen Miller and Brian Anderson homered for the Brewers, who ended the Astros’ eight-game hitting streak on Tuesday.

Astros starter Brandon Bielak (1-2) allowed four runs and five hits in a season-high 6 2/3 innings.

Gemini 7, Giants 1

Joe Ryan got his seventh win and Edouard Julien and Ryan Jeffers scored to lead Minnesota to a win over San Francisco in Minneapolis.

Willi Castro went 2 for 3 with a home steal for Minnesota, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Ryan (7-1) logged in five innings and allowed one run on six hits.

LaMonte Wade Jr. had two hits and a walk and Brandon Crawford had a double and two walks for San Francisco, which snapped a three-game hitting streak. The Giants went 2 for 16 with runners in scoring position and left 15 men on base.

Phillies 6, Diamondbacks 5 (10 innings)

Alec Bohm hit a walkout single in the tenth inning as host Philadelphia overcame a two-run deficit in the ninth to earn a victory over Arizona.

Bohm sent the Phillies to their third win in 10 games after Trea Turner’s double homer in the ninth tied it at 5-5. Craig Kimbrel (3-1) bowled a scoreless tenth to earn the win.

The Diamondbacks’ Jose Ruiz drove in for the ninth and had two quick outs, but gave up on Bryson Stott’s single before serving Turner’s game-winning homer. Ruiz (1-1) also produced Bohm’s game-winning single.

White Sox 6, Guardians 0

A five-run fourth inning gave Michael Kopech all the support he needed in an outstanding start, and Chicago won the rubber game of the three-game series by defeating host Cleveland.

Kopech (3-4) hit nine in seven innings while allowing two hits and a walk. Kopech did not surrender his first hit until the fifth inning and, at that point, had a six-run lead thanks to the White Sox’ fourth-inning flood.

Guardians starter Cal Quantrill (2-3) pitched four innings and allowed six runs on four hits—the only four hits Chicago had in the entire game.

Rays 7, Blue Jays 3

Tampa Bay solved the mystery of Yusei Kikuchi, finally beating the Japanese southpaw en route to victory over Toronto in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The Rays played rough hosts to Kikuchi (5-2), chasing him after five innings after tagging him for five runs and eight hits, including a pair of home runs. Kikuchi entered the game with a 4-0 record and a 1.80 ERA in his career against the Rays.

Tampa Bay ace Shane McClanahan (8-0) allowed only one run, four hits and no walks while striking out seven in seven innings. Luke Raley and Jose Siri homered for the Rays.

Nationals 5, Padres 3

Alex Call hit a two-run double and a single, Trevor Williams got into the sixth inning, and Washington beat San Diego in the three-game series as well.

Dominic Smith also had two hits for the Nationals, as they took an early 4-0 lead and held on for their third win in four games. Williams (2-2) went 5 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on three hits. Kyle Finnegan worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his tenth save.

Rougned Odor had two hits, including a home run, and Ha-Seong Kim also went deep for the Padres, who had won the previous two games. San Diego starter Ryan Weathers (1-3) worked six innings and gave up five runs, four earned, on seven hits.

Braves 4, Dodgers 3

Ozzie Albies hit a sacrifice fly to score Austin Riley with the game-winning run in the ninth inning, giving Atlanta a win over visiting Los Angeles to salvage the finale of a three-game series.

Riley led off the inning with a strong double, his second of the game, off Phil Bickford (1-2) and went to third on Travis d’Arnaud’s groundout. The Dodgers intentionally walked Eddie Rosario before the Albies tackled Riley on the seventh pitch of his at bat.

The winning pitcher was Raisel Iglesias (1-1), who allowed runners on corners in the 9th before walking out Max Muncy to end the threat.

Reds 10, Cardinals 3

Spencer Steer had four career hits and drove in two as fellow rookie Matt McLain returned home to lead Cincinnati to a rout visiting St. Louis.

The Reds, who put up a season-high 18 hits, finally got around to St. Louis starter and underdog Steven Matz (0-6), who had been 4-0 with a 2.92 ERA in five appearances (four starts) against Cincinnati.

Cincinnati right-hander Ben Lively (2-2) had his first win as a starter since September 29, 2017, pitching six innings of two-run ball. McLain hit his second league homer in as many nights, after the ball exited the glove of Cardinals right fielder Oscar Mercado and into the bleachers.

Marlin 10, Rockies 2

Jonathan Davis hits between his three hits, Jorge Soler went deep for the second night in a row, and Miami hit Colorado in Denver.

Yuli Gurriel had four hits while Jacob Stallings and Soler each added two hits for the Marlins. Major league batting leader Luis Arraez, who had previously hit a two-run double, exited the game in the seventh inning with a left leg cramp. Miami starter Sandy Alcantara (2-5) allowed two runs on four hits in six innings.

Elias Diaz homered for the Rockies. Colorado starter Karl Kauffmann (0-2) gave up five runs on six hits in 4 1/3 innings.

Tigers 6, Royals 4

Pinch hitter Zack Short’s three-run homer moved Detroit past host Kansas City.

Short’s second home run of the season — a one-off shot to left center by Josh Taylor (1-2) — broke a 1-1 tie in the sixth. It was his first career home run and the Tigers’ third home run of the year, the most total in the majors.

Will Vest (1-0) had four out for the win and Alex Lange earned his ninth save.
