Five-run 7th propels Pirates to sweep

Gerrit Cole tossed 7 innings of 2-run ball, and the Pirates backed him with five runs in the 7th inning -- sparked by Josh Harrison's 2-RBI single. Miami dropped its third straight, while Pittsburgh notched its longest win streak since 2013 (6 games). Box score


Rockies ride HRs to series win

Nolan Arenado hit a 3-run shot in the first inning and Charlie Blackmon followed with a 2-run HR in the second as the Rockies took the three-game set against the Reds in Cincy. Box score


Syndergaard does it all in Mets' 7-0 win

Noah Syndergaard tossed 7 1/3 scoreless innings and even hit his first career homer (430 feet) to lift the Mets to a series win and sweep of the Phillies at Citi Field. 1B Lucas Duda added two homers to give him 8 this season. Box score


A's Kazmir out after 3 no-hit innings

A's starter Scott Kazmir exited today's game against the Tigers after three innings. Kazmir walked three but didn't give up a hit. Dan Otero came in to pitch for the Athletics in the fourth. No word on Kazmir's status. Follow live


Atlanta Braves @Braves

Braves acquire IF Juan Uribe and RHP Chris Withrow in exchange for IF Alberto Callaspo, LHPs Eric Stults and Ian Thomas and RHP Juan Jaime

Cruz HR splashes in fish tank

Nelson Cruz sends a shot to center field that lands in the sting-ray pool, giving his team a three-run lead in the top of the ninth inning en route to a victory over Tampa Bay.


Highlight: King Felix's gem

Felix Hernandez was sterling in a four-hit shutout to become MLB's first eight-game winner. He has 11 shutouts in last 10 seasons. Only Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee have more.


Final: White Sox 5, Blue Jays 3 (10)

Toronto's Josh Donaldson tied the game with a solo HR in the bottom of the 9th -- his third game-tying or go-ahead HR in 9th inning or later this season. But the White Sox got ribbies from Adam LaRoche and Gordon Beckham in the 10th to snap a 4-game slide. Box score

Cruz-ing along

Nelson Cruz currently leads the majors in HR after his go-ahead blast in the 9th inning today. He actually has one more HR than he did at this same point last year when he went on to lead the majors in that category.


McCann, A-Rod power Yanks past Royals

Brian McCann and Alex Rodriguez jacked home runs to deliver a Yankees sweep of the Royals in the Bronx. Michael Pineda improved to 6-2 after providing more than 6 innings of 1-run ball. Box score


Jayson Stark @jaysonst

History in the making tonight. Jon Lester 0 for 57 lifetime at the plate. Could be first ever to start 0 for 58 - & he has to face Scherzer!

Buster Olney @Buster_ESPN

You just never know: NYY sweep the best team in baseball, taking three from the Royals, following a stretch in which the NYY lost 10 of 11.

Andrew Marchand @AndrewMarchand

Rays lost so after all the Yankees losing, they could go on their road trip up a game-and-a-half in the AL East, if they hang on here.
