Yanks catch Bosox...Indians still top division...Halos top Dodgers...Brewers, Cubs fall...Astros win
UNDATED (AP) — The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are back in a first-place tie in the American League East. Aaron Judge smacked his major league-leading 27th home run and Miguel Andujar (AN’-doo-hahr) had three hits and four RBIs in his major league debut as the Yanks rolled to a 12-3 win over the White Sox. Adalberto Mejia (meh-HEE’-uh) pitched shutout ball into the sixth inning and Max Kepler provided a two-run homer and three RBIs as the Twins knocked off the Red Sox, 4-1 in Boston.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians continue to lead the Twins by a half-game in the AL Central. Trevor Bauer looked good in the Indians’ 5-3 victory against Texas, holding the Rangers to a run and four hits over 6 1/3 innings. Michael Brantley delivered a pair of RBI singles while the Indians were taking a 5-1 lead.
UNDATED (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels prevented the Dodgers from expanding their 1 ½-game lead over Arizona in the NL West. Ben Revere scored the winning run on an odd play in the bottom of the ninth to give the Angels a 3-2 triumph over the Dodgers. Revere scored from second on a passed ball and a throwing error by Yasmani Grandal (yahs-MAH’-nee grahn-DAHL’) on the same play, a half-inning after Grandal tied the game with a solo homer.
UNDATED (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers still own a one-game lead over the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central following losses by both teams. Adam Duvall hit a second-inning homer and snapped a 3-3 deadlock with an RBI single to lead the Reds past the Brewers, 4-3 in Cincinnati. Solo homers by Anthony Rendon (rehn-DOHN’), Matt Wieters (WEE’-turz) and Daniel Murphy highlighted Washington’s 11-hit attack in an 8-4 pounding of the Cubs, which gives the Nationals a 9 ½-game lead in the NL East.
UNDATED (AP) — The AL West-leading Houston Astros kept their 12 ½-game edge over the Angels by getting three hits apiece from George Springer and Josh Reddick in an 11-8 victory against Oakland. Springer hit another leadoff homer in the first inning, but the Astros squandered an early 4-1 lead before scoring five times in the third to go ahead 9-5. Houston received five innings of one-hit ball from its bullpen after David Paulino was rocked for a career-high seven runs on seven hits over four-plus innings.
