Hellickson

Hellickson wins an interleague game

Jeremy Hellickson allowed one run in six innings and was credited with the win in the Phillies' 4-3 triumph over the Royals. It was a rare interleague victory for Hellickson, who is 2-11 in 17 career starts versus teams from the opposing league (1-6 with the Rays, 0-3 for the Diamondbacks and 1-2 with the Phillies). Hellickson's .154 winning percentage in interleague games is tied with Daniel Cabrera and John Thomson (both 2-11) for the lowest, all-time, among pitchers with 15 or more interleague starts.

Three RBIs for Holliday

Matt Holliday drove in three runs for the Cardinals in their 7-1 victory over the Brewers. It was the 52nd game in which Holliday produced three or more RBIs for St. Louis and the Cardinals are 46-6 in those games (17-1 over the last 18 such games).

Ellsbury's interleague hitting streak

Jacoby Ellsbury went 1-for-4 in the Yankees' loss at San Diego, and in doing so he extended his hitting streak in interleague competition to 13 games (dating back to August 2015). That is the longest current hitting streak of its kind in the major leagues.
