9/4/2021 05:24:45 GMT + 00: 00 – Marcus Semien scored a triple home run in the lower part of the ninth inning to give the Toronto Blue Jays a win from behind, an 11-10 win over the visiting Oakland A’s on Friday.
Mark Canha had hit a two-run homer with two outs in the top of ninth against Jordan Romano (7-1) to take a 10-8 lead. The Blue Jays had scored six goals in the lower round of 16 to make the game a draw.
At the end of ninth place Sergio Romo (1-1) allowed Breyvic Valera’s singles and George Springer’s doubles to open the inning before Semien hit his 34th homer of the season.
Lourdes Gurriel Jr.’s third career Grand Slam – all coming this year – crowned Toronto’s rally in the eighth inning.
Yankees 4, Orioles 3 (11 innings)
Giancarlo Stanton hit an end-of-game single to open the 11th inning, and New York outlasted his visit to Baltimore.
DJ LeMahieu landed a groundbreaking single in 10th place but got stranded in third place when Dillon Tate retired Aaron Judge. The Yankees eventually won it when Stanton hit a 2-1 sinker in the middle to get Judge in second place.
Stanton used to homered while the Orioles got homers from Trey Mancini and Jorge Mateo.
Cardinals 15, Brewers 4
In their 300th career start together, Adam Wainwright allowed a deserved run and catcher Yadier Molina hit a grand slam when the visit to St. Louis defeated Milwaukee.
Wainwright and Molina were the fourth battery in Major League history to reach this milestone, alongside Mickey Lolich and Bill Freehan (324 games), Warren Spahn and Del Crandall (316), and Red Faber and Ray Schalk (306).
Wainwright (14-7) beat the Brewers for the 19th time, allowing four hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings.
Mets 6, Nationals 2 (10 innings)
Pete Alonso hit a leadoff RBI single in the 10th inning to trigger a quadruple breakout for his visit to New York that averted a potentially ugly defeat by defeating Washington.
The Mets beat a blown save in Edwin Diaz’s ninth inning to take their fifth straight win and climb back to .500. The Nationals have lost six in a row and 10 out of 12.
Rich Hill tossed six goalless innings and Michael Conforto and Alonso each had RBI hits to help the Mets take a 2-0 lead into the ninth, but Juan Soto and Riley Adams later homered a game-defining double.
Rays 5, twins 3
Michael Wacha won for the first time in nearly two months when first-placed Tampa Bay broke their two-game losing streak to beat Minnesota in St. Petersburg, Florida.
After 0-2 with 8.49 ERA in five starts in August, Wacha (3-4) handed solo homers over to Jorge Polanco and Ryan Jeffers and a double to Max Kepler in his six innings.
The right-handed hit seven without walks and won an 8-1 win over the Cleveland Indians for the first time since July 7. Austin Meadows scored two of the six hits for the Rays, who face clubs with lost records at 39:14.
Red Sox 8, Indians 5
Kyle Schwarber drew two-run doubles in the seventh inning and had three RBIs when Boston survived Cleveland’s visit to open a three-game series.
Schwarber (2-for-5) also hit a solo blast for his 150th home run in his career. Hunter Renfroe added a triple homer in the seventh game, and Kevin Plawecki and Jonathan Arauz each had solo shots for Boston, who have won a total of three straight times and eight out of twelve games.
Austin Hedges hit a two-run homer and Jose Ramirez had a solo shot and two RBIs for Cleveland. The Indian starter Cal Quantrill (4-3) allowed five runs with seven hits – including three home runs – over more than six innings.
Tiger 15, Red 5
Dustin Garneau scored two of Detroit’s five home runs that were high profile during the season when the Tigers overwhelmed hosts Cincinnati.
Garneau drove in three runs. Detroit’s Jeimer Candelario had a homer, two doubles and one singles while scoring four runs and running in two. Jonathan Schoop also delivered four hits, including a solo homer, scoring three runs in the process. Robbie Grossman added a triple bang.
Jonathan India and Eugenio Suarez homered for the Reds. Cincinnati starter Vladimir Gutierrez (9-6) gave up four runs in 3 1/3 innings, three of which were earned.
Rockies 4, Braves 3
CJ Cron drove in the crucial run to support Antonio Senzatela’s solid pitching when Colorado beat Atlanta in Denver.
In the sixth line, Cron hemmed a single to the left to score Trevor Story, who started the rally with a two-out double. Senzatela (4-9) pitched seven innings and allowed three runs on six hits, cutting off three.
Huascar Ynoa (4-5) put in 5 2/3 innings, allowing four runs on five hits for the Brave, who have lost four of their last five.
Cubs 6, pirates 5
Frank Schwindel kicked off the home run in the sixth inning when Chicago scored a victory over the Pittsburgh visit and expanded its winning streak to four games.
Michael Hermosillo also homered for the Cubs. Both Vertigo and Hermosillo had three hits each from the top two spots in the Chicago order, and together they had five RBIs.
Anthony Alford scored two home runs for the Pirates, who lost four games in a row in Chicago after playing the White Sox earlier this week. Pittsburgh have lost a total of six of their last seven games.
Marlins 10, Phillies 3
Miguel Rojas had a pair of RBI singles during a seven-fold, tie sixth innings that took hosts Miami over Philadelphia.
The Phillies had broken off their six-game winning streak. Philadelphia’s winning streak of eleven games against division opponents also ended. It was the longest run of its kind in the majors since 2017.
Prior to Friday, the Phillies had run at least seven runs in seven straight games, the first time the franchise had done that feat since 1933.
