Regional MLB Recaps

– The Cubs completed a three-game sweep and pulled within 4 1/2 games of the NL Central lead by routing the Orioles, 8-0. Jose Quintana was outstanding in his Cubs debut as he three-hit the Birds while striking out a season-high 12 over seven innings. Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo homered for Chicago, which finished with 10 round-trippers in the series and moved over .500 for the first time since June 29.

– The Phillies trimmed Milwaukee’s lead in the NL Central as Nick Williams launched a grand slam in the sixth inning to lead a 5-2 triumph over the Brewers. Four relievers combined to shut out the Brewers over the final four innings escaping jams in the eighth and ninth when Milwaukee had the potential tying run at the plate.

– The Pirates beat the Cardinals, 4-3 on Adam Frazier’s game-ending single in the bottom of the ninth. St. Louis carried a 3-2 lead into the bottom of the ninth before Jordy Mercer laced an RBI double and scored the winning run. Yadier Molina had put the Redbirds up 3-2 with an eighth inning home run, the first allowed by Juan Nicasio this year.

– Nelson Cruz led off the 10th inning with a solo homer to complete the Mariners’ comeback from a 5-0 deficit in a 7-6 victory over the White Sox. Danny Valencia and Kyle Seager also went deep as Seattle completed a three-game sweep and won its fourth in a row. Chicago wasted two homers by Avisail Garcia.

– Mike Fiers struck out a season-high 11 over seven strong innings to pitch Houston past Minnesota, 5-3. The Twins led 3-2 until Nori Aoki  hit a two-run double in the fourth to help the Astros take the rubber match of the series. The Twins remain 1  1/2 games behind the AL Central-leading Indians, while the Astros pace the AL West by 15  1/2 games over Texas.
