Red Sox put another in the win column ... Orioles best Yanks ... Debut victory for Phillies
BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox keep improving their major league best record, beating the visiting Texas Rangers 8-4 and extending their winning streak to eight games. Andrew Benintendi bolstered his All-Star credentials with a pair of doubles and two RBIs in his final game before fan votes are tallied.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Orioles’ season is already all-but lost, but for whatever reason, they’ve managed to summon credible performances against the Yankees. Manny Machado hit two home runs, Jonathan Schoop (skohp) singled in the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning, as the Baltimore rallied past the New York Yankees 6-5. The Yankees’ record against the last-place Orioles is 4-5.
NEW YORK (AP) — Enyel De Los Santos won his major league debut and the Philadelphia Phillies got home runs from Maikel Franco and Odubel Herrera in a 7-3 victory over the New York Mets. Franco drove in four runs as the Phillies, who began the day tied with Atlanta atop the NL East, won for the 10th time in 13 games.
MIAMI (AP) — Christian Yelich had three hits and four RBIs, Travis Shaw homered and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Miami Marlins 8-4. Shaw and Tyler Saladino had two RBIs each, and Milwaukee won for the seventh time in nine games. Jhoulys Chacin (joh-LEES’ cha-SEEN’) allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out three and walked three.
ATLANTA (AP) — Russell Martin’s sharp single in a five-run eighth drove in the go-ahead run for Toronto as the Blue Jays beat Atlanta 6-2. That knocks the Braves out of first place in the NL East. The Braves have lost six of their last seven.
