09/28/2021 07:27:38 GMT + 00: 00 – The Seattle Mariners continued their dominance at the Oakland Athletics on Monday night, riding Mitch Haniger’s two triple home runs to a 13-4 stroke of their American Liga West rival in the opener of a three Games series.
Seattle retreated to first-placed Houston Astros in AL West within 4 1/2 games while it moved to Boston in 1 1/2 games in pursuit of the second AL wildcard. The A’s fell 3 1/2 games behind the Red Sox in the wildcard race.
Ty France finished 4-for-4 with four RBIs and three runs for Seattle. Chris Flexen (14-6) won the game, threw five innings and allowed four runs and seven hits. He went one and hit six.
Seth Brown hit a triple homer for the A’s. Cole Irvin (10-15) scored five runs on six hits in over three innings.
White socks 8, tiger 7
Cesar Hernandez and Zack Collins each drove two runs during a six-run outbreak in the fourth inning and visited Chicago after clearing an incident on the benches in the final inning.
The clash in the ninth inning came after Chicago’s Jose Abreu and Detroit shortstop Niko Goodrum exchanged words after Abreu was kicked out trying to advance on a low pitch. Abreu had previously been hit in the inning by an Alex Lange pitch after Isaac Paredes was hit by a pitch by the Tigers.
Eloy Jimenez had three hits, including a double homer, for the White Sox. Yasmani Grandal added a solo shot as part of a game postponed last Wednesday. Jonathan Schoop had two hits, including a solo homer, and drove into Detroit’s home finals in two runs.
Reds 13, Pirates 1
Nick Castellanos homered to highlight his five-RBI performance and Joey Votto smacked two shots out of two runs to propel hosts Cincinnati to a blowout win over Pittsburgh.
Castellanos started with three runs in the sixth inning for his 33rd homer of the season and went low in four straight games for the Reds, who scored 17 goals. Rookie Jonathan India buckled up a two-pass homer to highlight his first four-hit performance of his career. Eugenio Suarez had a solo shot among his three hits.
The offense was more than enough for Reiver Sanmartin (1-0), who was recalled by Triple-A Louisville to make his Major League debut. The 25-year-old left-hander allowed a run on five hits while striking five in 5 2/3 innings. Anthony Alford had two hits and one run for the Pirates, who have beaten Cincinnati 4-12 that season.
Indians 8, Royals 3
Amed Rosario went 4-for-5 with three RBIs when Cleveland beat Visiting Kansas City in a makeup game after a rainout on Wednesday.

It was the final away competition for the Royals, who finished on the road after the All-Star hiatus after a 15-31 road record before the 20-15 hiatus. Kansas City’s Salvador Perez was 2 for 4, running in two runs, increasing his leading overall in the Major League to 117 RBIs.
