Madison Bumgarner was inundated by his teammates after scoring seven innings without a hit when the Arizona Diamondbacks beat hosts Atlanta Braves 7-0 and defeated a double header Sunday afternoon.
Since it was a seven-inning game, it is not counted as an official no-hitter game, but as a complete game shutout for the four-time All-Star.
Bumgarner faced the minimum and only allowed a baserunner on a second inning error by shortstop Nick Ahmed. He retired for 17 years to finish the game. Bumgarner, who took a 5-0 lead before promotion, was aggressive as he scored 73 hits on 98 fields. He ended with seven strikes.
The Diamondbacks jumped over Atlanta starter Drew Smyly (0-1) in the first inning and made five runs before the Braves even stepped on the plate. Pavin Smith, David Peralta and Eduardo Escobar met Arizona.
Padres 8, Dodgers 7 (11 innings)
Eric Hosmer delivered a sacrificial fly in the 11th inning to give San Diego a comeback win over Los Angeles and a streak win on the road during a memorable four game between the National League Powerhouses.
The Padres’ third win in four days came after they belatedly recovered with six runs from the seventh through the ninth innings to send the game into additional innings. It was the Dodgers’ first loss in six or more runs since 2011.
Fernando Tatis Jr. scored a home run for the Padres, his fifth in the series’ last three games. He has seven in the season. Dodger’s starter Dustin May hit a career high of 10 in six innings but ignored the decision.
Red Sox 5, Mariners 3
Eduardo Rodriguez threw seven solid innings to secure the Major League lead with his fourth win of the season as Boston beat visiting Seattle.
Rodriguez (4-0) overcame a shaky opening inning and allowed three runs with six hits. The left-hander did not take a punch and struck eight. JD Martinez went 2-3 for the Red Sox with two doubles.
Mariners left-hander Nick Margevicius (0-2) only lasted a third of an inning. He gave up four runs with two hits with four walks and one strike.
Rockies 12, Phillies 2
CJ Cron scored and racked up four hits, Trevor Story scored a grand slam and single player, and Colorado beat Philadelphia in Denver.
Raimel Tapia, Yonathan Daza, Josh Fuentes and Dom Nunez each had two hits and Jon Gray (3-1) threw six solid innings for the Rockies, who have won four of their last five.
Bryce Harper hit two home runs and Nick Maton hit two for the Phillies.
Indians 7, Yankees 3
Franmil Reyes hit a three-start homer in the fourth inning when Cleveland dropped in on a visit to New York to save the final of a four-game series.
The Indians returned from a 3-0 deficit and opened the fourth with four goals in a row against Jameson Taillon (0-2). After three consecutive singles, Reyes followed Eddie Rosario’s RBI by lifting a 2-1 fastball over Aaron Judge’s attempt to jump in the warning lane to the right field seats.
Reyes’ fifth homer of the season showed a performance of three hits for the designated batsman. He singled and stole his first career base in the second and then hit his second career triple in the sixth.
Orioles 8, A’s 1
Austin Hays scored twice, and Maikel Franco added another as Baltimore ended Oakland’s 13-game winning streak with a one-sided victory.
The A’s hadn’t lost at their home game in Houston since April 8th. Oakland started the season 6-0 before everything was turned around. The 13-game winning streak is the team’s third-longest since moving to Oakland in the late 1960s.
The A’s couldn’t find much offense against Baltimore’s starter John Means and the Bullpen. Oakland ended with three hits against Means (2-0), who gave up a run with two hits in 6 1/3 innings.

Taijuan Walker threw seven scoreless innings while JD Davis and Pete Alonso each hit homer when hosts New York hid Washington to win their weekend streak.
Walker (1-1) recovered from a Tuesday night loss to the Chicago Cubs, in which he ran six over 3 2/3 innings and was thrown for a ball-and-punch argument. He only allowed three hits, went three and hit four while lowering his earned run average is 2.14.

Santiago Espinal went 2-4 and was single in the single run, and five pitchers kept opponents goalless to the relief of injured starter Hyun Jin Ryu when Toronto blocked Tampa Bay in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Ryu threw 3 2/3 goalless innings but pointed to the dugout canoe after a two-out single from Manuel Margot in the fourth and left the game. The Blue Jays later said he suffered slight stress on his right gluteus muscles. Ryu allowed three hits and a step and hit five in his undecision.
21-year-old Tampa Bay pitcher Luis Patino – number 2 organizational prospect according to MLB Pipeline – made his debut and overwhelmed Toronto in 2 2/3 innings without a hit. He knocked out three and went one on the 42-pitch excursion.
White Sox 8, Rangers 4
Jose Abreu came home and drove in three runs. Michael Kopech scored ten hits in five innings when Chicago played three games in Texas.
Kopech (2-0), a right-handed player, allowed the White Sox, who have won four straight and six of seven times, a four-goal run without runs at a career high of 87 fields to hit a season high of three games over .500.
The Texas right-hander Kohei Arihara (2: 2) ended his series with 12 1/3 innings without scoring in the first round with Abreu’s two-shot shot into the stands on the left field.
Diamondbacks 5, Braves 0 (Game 1)

Angel 4, Astros 2
Shohei Ohtani shattered his seventh home game of the season, a shot into midfield that led to the eighth inning, and Los Angeles prevented a four-game series sweep from hosts Houston.
