Tyler Glasnow threw six effective innings and led the Tampa Bay Rays to a 7-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim, California.
Glasnow (4-1) allowed three runs with four hits with four walks and eight spikes. Three radiation helpers then excluded the Angels on two hits over the last three innings.
Willy Adames and Manuel Margot met for the Rays while Shohei Ohtani and Anthony Rendon went deep for the Angels. Ohtani was scratched from his scheduled start on the hill after being hit on his right elbow by bad luck on Sunday.
Rendon left the game in the eighth inning after fouling a ball off his left knee. The x-rays were negative and he is listed as having an injured knee day in and day out, the team said.
Phillies 4, Brewers 3
Starting and winning pitcher Vince Velasquez (1-0) withdrew his last 10 batters, allowing four hits and a run of six innings. He hit six and went two.
Hector Neris made his sixth save of the season with five outs.
JT Realmuto gave the Phillies the lead with a two-part home run in the lower part of the first inning and Didi Gregorius had two hits.
Lorenzo Cain returned to Milwaukee on his return from the injured list.
Padres 2, pirates 0
Wil Myers brought a single to the right to break Tyler Anderson’s no-hit offer with no outs in the seventh, sparking a two-run rally that took hosts San Diego past Pittsburgh.
Anderson was just two thugs above the minimum when he went to Manny Machado to open the seventh. Myers’ hit put Machado in third place, and he hit Tommy Pham’s sacrificial fly. Austin Nola’s doubles were scored by Myers.
Anderson (2-3) allowed two runs with two hits and three walks with five strokes in 6 2/3 innings. Tim Hill (2-2), fourth of six Padres pitchers, took the win, and Mark Melancon scored his tenth save with a ninth goal.
Athletics 5, Blue Jays 4
Ramon Laureano broke a fifth inning tie with a two-part home run, his third goal in his last three games, and hosts Oakland opened a four-game run against Toronto with one win.
Stephen Piscotty also returned to Oakland. Three A-reliefs teamed up to limit Toronto one run over the final three innings. Starter Frankie Montas (3-2) scored six innings and allowed three runs and seven hits. He went one and hit four.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. collected one doubles and two singles for Toronto, ending a three-game winning streak at the start of a ten-game journey. The starter and loser of Blue Jays, Steven Matz (4-2), scored five innings and five runs with seven hits. He went one and fanned out six.
Twins 6, Rangers 5
Jorge Polanco had a triple, a double and two RBIs, while Kenta Maeda scored eight over 5 1/3 goalless innings as Minnesota battled it out over Texas in Minneapolis.
Alex Kirilloff doubled twice, scored three times and drove one run for the Twins, who were leading 5-0 after seven innings. Minnesota won for the fourth time in five games after a stretch in which it lost eight out of nine games, with three games being postponed due to COVID-19 considerations in that run.
Maeda (2-2) scored just two hits along with two walks and was removed from 94 pitches after throwing. Adolis Garcia and Joey Gallo hit two homers for the Rangers.
Indians 8, Royals 6
Eddie Rosario scored a triple home run in the seventh inning to end a tie, and Josh Naylor hit a two-piece shot later in the inning when Cleveland emerged victorious in Kansas City.
Bryan Shaw (1-0) took the win after getting out of a base-laden traffic jam in the sixth inning. Emmanuel Clase threw a goalless ninth place to score his sixth save in seven chances.
The Royals scored third at the end of seventh place, but couldn’t quite come back at the start of a series with four games. Lefty Daniel Lynch, Kansas City’s top prospect, allowed three runs in 4 2/3 innings on his Major League debut.
Orioles 5, Mariners 3
Cedric Mullins and Freddy Galvis scored five runs in an eighth inning when Baltimore hosts beat Seattle in the opener of a three-game series.
Baltimore’s Cole Sulser (1-0) took the win with a goalless inning of relief. Cesar Valdez threw a 1-2-3 ninth for the seventh time this season, beating Jose Marmolejos and Dylan Moore, who ended the game.
Anthony Misiewicz (2-1), the sixth Mariners pitcher, suffered the loss. Tom Murphy and Mitch Haniger returned to Seattle.
