Sat Aug 5 201712:10MLB roundup: Dodgers blank Mets in Darvish debut
NEW YORK -- Yu Darvish threw seven scoreless innings in his first start for Los Angeles and Chase Utley continued to torment the New York Mets by hitting a two-run homer in the seventh inning of the Dodgers' 6-0 win on Friday at Citi Field.The scorching Dodgers won for the 42nd time in their last 49 games dating back to June 7. The Mets lost for the fifth time in six games.Darvish, who was acquired from the Texas Rangers in exchange for three prospects seconds before the trade deadline Monday, allowed just three hits and one walk while striking out 10. The win was the first since June 12 for Darvish, who was 0-5 with a 5.81 ERA in his final eight starts for the Rangers.Darvish received the only support he'd need when Chris Taylor homered leading off the first against Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom (12-5). Yasiel Puig homered in the second and Justin Turner hit into a run-scoring play in the fifth.Tigers 5, Orioles 2BALTIMORE -- Justin Upton hit a grand slam off Mychal Givens in the top of the eighth inning, and starter Justin Verlander gave Detroit seven solid innings against Baltimore.The Tigers, who have won four in a row, were trailing 2-1 when Givens came on in the eighth. He gave up two singles and then walked Jim Adduci -- who homered in the first -- to load the bases.Upton then belted a grand slam to left on the first pitch from Givens (7-1). That put the Tigers on top, 5-2. This was Upton's third grand slam of the season, the last coming on July 30 versus Houston. Upton now has hit seven career grand slams.Reds 3, Cardinals 2CINCINNATI -- Joey Votto doubled and drove in two runs and Asher Wojciechowski allowed a run and three hits through five innings, lifting Cincinnati to a victory over St. Louis in the opener of a three-game series.Rookie Jesse Winker and Billy Hamilton each had a pair of hits for Cincinnati, which has won six of the past seven games against the Cardinals and 12 of 18.Wojciechowski (2-1) walked one and fanned five in his first outing since being moved into the rotation.Nationals 4, Cubs 2CHICAGO -- Daniel Murphy continues to own Chicago Cubs' pitching.Murphy went 3-for-4 with two homers, two runs scored and three RBIs in Washington's victory to open a three-game series between National League Division leaders at Wrigley Field.Murphy is now batting .526 with four homers and six RBIs in his last 10 games at Wrigley Field, including postseason play.Indians 7, Yankees 2CLEVELAND -- Trevor Bauer pitched seven strong innings and New York's shoddy defense proved costly for the second consecutive night as Cleveland rolled to a win.Bauer (10-8) held New York to one run on seven hits with seven strikeouts and two walks. In winning the first two of the four-game series, the Indians' starting pitchers, Corey Kluber and Bauer, combined to pitch 16 innings, allowing two runs (1.13 ERA), 10 hits, with 18 strikeouts and three walks.The Yankees have lost four games in a row and have scored a total of two runs in the last three.Braves 5, Marlins 3ATLANTA -- Giancarlo Stanton hit two homers totaling an estimated 901 feet, but the mammoth blasts didn't pay off for Miami.Nick Markakis' three-run homer, tracked at a normal 388 feet, put Atlanta ahead in the sixth inning and the Braves beat the Marlins despite the power display by the Miami slugger. Stanton's 34th homer traveled 477 feet in the fourth inning and his 35th carried 424 feet into the left-field seats with a man on in the sixth, both blasts coming off R.A. Dickey knuckleballs.Brewers 2, Rays 0ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Orlando Arcia, hitting ninth in the batting order, had a triple and home run, scoring the only runs in Milwaukee's win over Tampa Bay.Brewers rookie Brandon Woodruff (1-0) was superb in his major league debut, getting out of early jams and throwing 6 1/3 shutout innings against a team that had just won three straight against the Astros. Milwaukee won without much help from their bats for the second straight game and Tampa Bay spoiled a solid start from rookie Jake Faria (5-2).Red Sox 3, White Sox 3 (11 innings)BOSTON -- Mitch Moreland hit a walk-off solo home run with two outs in the 11th inning to send Boston past Chicago.It was Moreland's third career walk-off homer and his 14th of the season, landing in the Green Monster seats in left field. Moreland entered the game as a defensive replacement at first base to start the 10th inning.Boston ran its winning streak to four games and has won six of its last eight after a 9-5 win in Thursday's series opener.Mariners 5, Royals 2KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Jarrod Dyson drove in the go-ahead run in a three-run seventh and James Paxton picked up his seventh victory in as many starts as Seattle topped Kansas City.Guillermo Heredia doubled in the first run in the seventh to tie the score at 2. Dyson laced a single to right, scoring Heredia. Dyson stole second and scored on Leonys Martin's two-out single.Paxton (12-3) has not lost since June 27 to Philadelphia. He was pulled after 95 pitches and six innings, giving up two runs on four hits, one walk and two wild pitches, while striking out seven.Astros 16, Blue Jays 7HOUSTON -- Yuli Gurriel reached base in all five plate appearances, Tyler White produced four hits and his second career multi-homer game and Houston bludgeoned Toronto.Gurriel finished 3-for-3 with three runs scored and three RBIs. He clubbed his 14th home run and added a pair of walks for his first career multi-walk game. White went 4-for-5 with five RBIs and was a triple shy of the cycle. His homers were his first of the season with Houston.Pirates 10, Padres 6PITTSBURGH -- Gregory Polanco hit his first career pinch-hit homer, a three-run blast that bounced into the Allegheny River, to highlight a six-run seventh inning in Pittsburgh's win over San Diego.Polanco's 434-foot homer, which cleared the stands in right field off reliever Kirby Yates (2-2), gave the Pirates a 7-6 lead. Adam Frazier's sacrifice fly later in the inning increased the advantage to 8-6, and Josh Harrison added a two-run single.Yates was charged with six runs on four hits in one-third of an inning.Diamondbacks 2, Giants 1SAN FRANCISCO -- Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-4 with a triple and two RBIs, leading Arizona to a victory over San Francisco.Goldschmidt, who hit a career-high three home runs with a career-high-matching six RBIs on Thursday in Arizona's 10-8 win over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, stayed hot and helped rookie left-hander Anthony Banda get his first major league win.Banda (1-1) allowed one run and three hits in six innings in his second major league start. He was called up from Triple-A Reno and started in place of Robbie Ray, who's on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion. Banda struck out seven, walked four and threw 92 pitches.Rockies 4, Phillies 3DENVER -- DJ LeMahieu bounced a single into right field with two outs in the eighth inning helping Colorado to a comeback win over Philadelphia.Luis Garcia (1-3) began the eighth by walking pinch-hitter Pat Valaika, who took second on catcher Cameron Rupp's passed ball. With two outs, Garcia intentionally walked left-handed hitting Charlie Blackmon to get to LeMahieu, a right-handed hitter.LeMahieu singled on an 0-1 fastball, sending the Phillies to their major league-leading 28th one-run loss. It was also their fourth straight setback on their current eight-game road trip.Angels 8, Athletics 6ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Cliff Pennington and Luis Valbuena had clutch two-run singles and Los Angeles rallied from a 6-2 deficit to beat Oakland and move within two games of the second wild card in the American League.Pennington drove in two runs in the sixth inning to cut the margin to 6-4 and Valbuena's two-run single tied the score in the seventh. Yunel Escobar and Mike Trout followed Valbuena's hit with run-scoring singles to make it 8-6.The A's bullpen collapsed in the late innings. Reliever Liam Hendriks allowed two inherited runners to score in the sixth, Daniel Coulombe walked three straight hitters to start the seventh, and Blake Treinen allowed all three Angels hits in the seventh.Twins 8, Rangers 4MINNEAPOLIS -- Brian Dozier homered twice, Robbie Grossman added a three-run blast and Bartolo Colon had his first complete game since Sept. 5, 2015, as Minnesota beat Texas.Dozier hit his fifth leadoff homer of the season and 24th career to extend his club record. Grossman's seventh homer of the season came in a four-run first inning.Colon (3-9) earned his first win in four starts with Minnesota.
