PITTSBURGH (AP) — Bryse Wilson had an impressive debut for the Atlanta Braves in Pittsburgh last night, with one moment he'd probably like to forget. The 20-year-old right-hander limited the Pirates to three hits and struck out five over five innings to earn the win. The only bad moment for Wilson came when he appeared to single with two outs in the fourth, but was thrown out at first base by right fielder Gregory Polanco.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kenley Jansen returned to the Dodgers' bullpen last night, but it did not go well. The closer allowed ninth-inning homers to Jedd Gyorko and Matt Carpenter, as the visiting Cardinals beat L.A., 5-3. St. Louis improved to 15-4 this month, the most wins in the majors.

SEATTLE (AP) — The Astros remains tied for first in the AL West Division, but they continue to struggle. Last night they fell to the Mariners in Seattle, 7-4. Robinson Cano, recently returned from an 80-game suspension, hit a game-winning three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth. Seattle is now just three and a-half games behind Oakland and Houston in the division. The Astros expect to activate 2B Jose Altuve off the disabled list before tonight's game.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) —The Oakland Athletics have grabbed a share of the AL West lead, with a 9-0 whitewashing of the Texas Rangers at home last night. Khris Davis hit a towering 438-foot home run, after letting a young fan from the Make-A-Wish Foundation sign his jersey before the game. And Rookie Ramon Laureano hit the first two home runs of his career.
