Cubs Snap Losing Streak
– Kris Bryant hit his 17th homer and the Chicago Cubs erupted following manager Joe Maddon’s fourth-inning ejection, routing the Pittsburgh Pirates 11-3 to stop a four-game losing streak. Bryant tied a season high with four hits, including a first-inning shot to the seats in right-center off Jordan Lyles. Robel Garcia finished a double short of the cycle in his first major league start.
Brewers Blanked by Reds
– Luis Castillo struck out nine while pitching one-hit ball into the eighth inning, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the slumping Milwaukee Brewers 1-0. Cincinnati won for the fourth time in five games. Jesse Winker went 3 for 3 and scored the only run on Yasiel Puig’s first-inning single.
Cardinals in Another Comeback Over Seattle
– Matt Wieters and Dexter Fowler homered, Tommy Edman came through with another key hit, and the St. Louis Cardinals rallied for a 5-4 win over the Seattle Mariners. Wieters hit a solo shot in the third inning and Fowler added a two-run drive in the fourth. Daniel Ponce de Leon got his first major league win, and Carlos Martinez worked the ninth for his third save.
White Sox Pounded by Tigers
Niko Goodrum lined a two-run homer in Detroit’s five-run sixth inning, Matthew Boyd struck out 13 to tie a career high and the Tigers topped the Chicago White Sox 11-5. Miguel Cabrera added a 454-foot solo shot and doubled, and Jeimer Candelario also homered. John Hicks and Nicholas Castellanos each had two RBIs as Detroit rebounded after being swept in doubleheader on Wednesday to win for just the second time in its past 13 games.
Twins Falter Against A’s
– Marcus Semien belted a grand slam and a solo shot in the Athletics’ 7-2 victory against the Twins. Semien sent the first pitch from Mike Morin over the wall in left-center during the eighth inning for his fourth career grand slam. Chris Herrmann had a career-high four hits and Wei-Chung Wang pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings of relief for his first career win in 34 appearances over three big league seasons.
