2021-08-25 07:24:10 GMT + 00: 00 – Jo Adell delivered his second four-RBI game in a week to help the Los Angeles Angels score a 14-8 win on Tuesday night and the Baltimore Orioles send their 19th consecutive loss.
It’s been the longest losing streak in the majors since the Kansas City Royals also lost 19 in a row in 2005.
Brandon Marsh from Los Angeles had a career high of four hits at the beginning of the series with three games. Marsh and Adell, both rookie outfielders, were among eight players with multi-hit games for the Angels.
The only exception in the starting XI was Shohei Ohtani with one hit and two walks. Los Angeles ended with a season high of 19 hits.
For the Orioles, Anthony Santander went 4-for-5 with a home run and two doubles, three RBIs and three runs, Ryan Mountcastle homered twice and Ramon Urias contributed two hits and three RBIs.
Yankees 5, Braves 4
Second baseman DJ LeMahieu kicked off the home run, one of three hit by a visit to New York that beat Atlanta and expanded its winning streak to 11 games.
LeMahieu’s double homer in the fifth inning helped New York win for the 18th time in 21 games. Giancarlo Stanton and Rougned Odor also played for the Yankees, who played three of four games against National League East-leading Atlanta that season.
Atlanta starter Charlie Morton (12-5) accepted the defeat. The veteran pitched five innings and allowed four runs on six hits with nine strikeouts.
Dodgers 5, Padres 2
Will Smith hit a home run and Julio Urias scored five scoreless innings on his return from the injured list when he netted a win over San Diego while visiting Los Angeles.
Starting a three-game series, Los Angeles scored its 10th win in 11 games. San Diego fell for the 10th time in 12 games. The Dodgers remain 2 1/2 games behind the first-placed San Francisco Giants in their quest for the ninth straight title in the National League West.
Jurickson Profar hit a home run for the Padres, who had only one hit in seven innings and finished with three. Right-hander Pierce Johnson (3-3) started for the Padres in a bullpen game and put up a goalless first inning before getting into trouble.
Mariners 5, athletics 1
Right-hander Chris Flexen wowed family and friends by effectively hitting the seventh inning, and Seattle completed a two-game road sweep of Oakland.
The win allowed the Mariners to move up from the A’s in one game in the battle for second place in the American League West and was Seattle’s fifth straight win over Oakland of the season after losing four of the top seven.
Losing for the third time in three career meetings with the Mariners, Cole Irvin (9-12) stumbled through three innings, allowing three runs and seven hits. He went in twos and didn’t hit anyone.
Giants 8, Mets 0
Brandon Belt homered twice, finishing with four hits and three RBIs, and four San Francisco pitchers combined on a five-hit shutout over hosts New York to open a three-game series.
Left-handed Sammy Long earned his second big division win by throwing 5 1/3 innings of three-hit ball for the Giants, who improved to 16-5 this month. San Francisco is 2 1/2 games ahead of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West.
The Mets stand 6-16 August, a period of time when they led the NL East by four games and outperformed the Atlanta Braves by 6 1/2 games. New York starter Tylor Megill allowed seven runs on 11 hits and went none while striking five over 3 2/3 innings.
Astros 4, Royals 0
Rookie right-handed Luis Garcia shutout in the seventh inning, two relievers kept him intact the rest of the way, and hosts Houston took advantage of two early mistakes in their shutout win over Kansas City.
Garcia (10-6) was the third Houston starter to take double-digit wins, alongside Zack Greinke (11-4) and Lance McCullers Jr. (10-4). He did so by posting the longest scoreless outing of his career, loging in 6 2/3 innings while giving up four hits and a walk with seven strikeouts.
Royals right-handed Brady Singer (3-9) was thwarted by his defense in the first inning. Astros second baseman Jose Altuve reached first base after a fielding error by O’Hearn and later scored a goal from Carlos Correa.
Brewer 7, Red 4
Omar Narvaez doubled the starting gun and crowned a seventh inning with four runs as hosts Milwaukee battled for a win over Cincinnati in the start of a three-game series.
The Brewers extended their lead in the National League Central to 8 1/2 games over the runner-up Reds, who had won six of their first seven games in Milwaukee that year. Milwaukee shortstop Willy Adames left the game after the first inning as a precaution with ailments in the left quadr.
Cincinnati put their first five hitters on board in the fourth to score three ahead of Milwaukee starter Corbin Burnes, who ran the National League’s second-best ERA with 2.13.
Red Sox 11, twins 9
Hunter Renfroe homered twice and had hosted five RBIs in Boston in the start of a three-game Minnesota series.
Enrique Hernandez went deep for his 30th birthday and so did Travis Shaw, Alex Verdugo had three hits and the Red Sox won for the third time in their last four games.
Jorge Polanco homered and had three RBIs and Miguel Sano also drove three for the twins, who lost their fourth episode.
Tiger 4, Cardinals 3
Miguel Cabrera made his 501st career homer when he visited Detroit to oust St. Louis.
The Cardinals have lost for the fifth time in their last seven games – and they may have lost starting pitcher Jack Flaherty as well. Flaherty (9-2) only lasted more than two innings before leaving due to pain in his right shoulder. He allowed four runs with four hits and three walks while he hit one.
Casey Mize (7-6) threw five shutout innings for the Tigers, who won for a third time in four games. Mize allowed for three hits and two walks while hitting two to claim his first win since July 29th.
Rays 3, Phillies 1
Nelson Cruz, a 41-year-old veteran who played first base for the first time in his career, had three hits and two RBIs to get Tampa Bay past hosts Philadelphia.
The Rays have won for the seventh time in their last eight games. The Phillies lost their sixth loss in eight games. JT Chargois (3-0) earned the win by hitting the only stroke he faced to end the seventh inning. Andrew Kittredge fanned out four in two scoreless innings to score his third save.
Didi Gregorius led the Phillies with two hits and one run. Phillies starter Ranger Suarez threw a career high 6 2/3 innings, giving up six hits and one run. Suarez scored the top seven of her career and only went one without a decision.
White Sox 5, Blue Jays 2
Jose Abreu scored a triple home run in the first inning to start, and right-handed Dylan Cease hit seven out of seven innings to lead the Chicago visit to a win over Toronto.
Abreu ended up with three hits and four RBIs to help the White Sox break the first two games in a four-game series. Luis Robert and Yoan Moncada each added three of Chicago’s 18 hits in the game.
Toronto’s Jose Berrios (8-7) allowed four runs on nine hits while hitting six before being replaced by Trent Thornton in the fourth inning.
Pirates 4, Diamondbacks 2
Anthony Alford and Michael Chavis led Pittsburgh past Arizona.
The Pirates have won four of their last five games, including the first two in this streak after being swept away by the Diamondbacks in the teams’ previous streak. The teams are at the bottom of the National League table, but the Pirates have preferred 4 1/2 games on Arizona.
Pittsburgh starter JT Brubaker (5-13), who lost nine straight decisions and hasn’t won since May 29, put on five goalless innings with four hits, three walks and six strikeouts. Chris Stratton finished ninth scoreless on his second save and gave the Diamondbacks their fourth loss in five games. Arizona starter Madison Bumgarner (7-8) allowed four runs and six hits in six innings, with three walks and five strikeouts.
Nationals 5, Marlins 1
Erick Fedde hit a career high of 10, Tres Barrera and Ryan Zimmerman each hit a homer with two runs, and Washington beat hosts Miami their eighth straight defeat.
Fedde (6-8) took one and allowed six hits and one run, improving to 3-0 with an ERA of 0.98 in five career starts against the Marlins. Zimmerman hit his 40th career homer against the Marlins, finishing second on that list with Chipper Jones. Only Ryan Howard, at 41, hit more home runs against the Marlins.
Marlins lefty Jesus Luzardo, who entered the night with a 9.68 ERA in four starts since he was taken over by the Oakland A’s, had another tough game. Luzardo (4-7) allowed 10 hits, one walk and five runs in 4 2/3 innings. He fanned out three.
Ranger 7, Indians 3
Nathaniel Lowe smashed a triple homer to highlight a career high five-goal performance when he defeated Texas against Cleveland.
Lowe also had doubles and three singles, DJ Peters started a triple homer and Andy Ibanez had three singles to score his fourth straight multi-hit game for the Rangers.
Daniel Johnson homered to conduct the third inning and Yu Chang went deep to start the fifth for the Indians, who had lost their three-game winning streak.
