Travis Shaw’s RBI single scored an eleventh inning in three runs, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers 6-5 for the third straight Saturday.
After Will Smith’s triple threesome put Los Angeles 5-3 ahead in the 11th, the Brewers loaded the bases with nob-outs in the lower part of the frame.
Kolten Wong delivered a sacrificial fly and Avisail Garcia hit a tie single with two outs. Then Shaw, who was returning early in the competition, put a shot in right field in front of Mitch White, the 10th Dodgers pitcher of the night, to end the comeback and send Milwaukee to a ninth win in 12 games.
Not only did the Dodgers fall for the 10th time in their 13th games, they also lost the starting pitcher Dustin May to a right arm injury. May will have an MRI scan on his right elbow in Chicago on Monday, Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said after the game.
Yankees 6, Tigers 4
Jameson Taillon allowed a run in five effective innings for his first win in exactly two years, and Aaron Judge drove in three runs, including a tiebreaking RBI double in the fifth inning when hosts New York defeated Detroit for their seventh win in 10 games.
Taillon (1-2) allowed three hits in the longest of his five games with the Yankees and didn’t allow a hit until Jeimer Candelario hit with two outs in the fourth. He hit eight and went three in his first win since beating the Texas Rangers on May 1, 2019 for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
A little over three months later, Taillon underwent his second operation on Tommy John and then refined his mechanics during lengthy rehab.
Blue Jays 6, Braves 5 (10 innings)
Randal Grichuk prevailed against a two-part single-to-center field in the 10th inning when Toronto visited Atlanta in Dunedin, Florida.

Jose Urquidy hid Tampa Bay over seven innings, Yuli Gurriel drove in two runs in a first three-run inning, and the Astros defeated the Rays in St. Petersburg, Florida.
