Rick Porcello records fourth immaculate inning in Red Sox history

Sale carved up the Rays lineup, freezing four hitters looking for a called strike three and getting nine to chase pitches that sent them down swinging.

The Yankees kept pace with the Red Sox by crushing three home runs in an 11-5 pounding of the Blue Jays. "I could have gotten out of that inning with a lot less pitches and no runs". A bad throw by Austin Pruitt (6-3) prevented a possible inning-ending double play on Rafael Devers' chopper to the mound.

However, Boston would add two runs in the 8th to cruise to the 8-2 win. Garrett Cooper had four hits and two RBIs for the Yankees.

Cincinnati catcher Tucker Barnhart hit a three-run homer off Jose Torres. Cron's home run, his seventh of the season, came in the sixth inning against Orioles starter Kevin Gausman and stretched the Angels' lead to 4-1. Anderson sparked the White Sox in the fifth and sixth innings when they hit the Astros' Colin McHugh (0-1) hard and tallied all their runs. The Royals were clinging to a 5-4 lead until Yadier Molina unloaded a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth.

Jared Eickoff carried a shutout into the seventh and the Phillies scored twice on Odubal (oh-DOO'-bul) Herrera's RBI triple before beating the Braves, 3-2.

San Diego piled up nine hits and five runs off Sal Romano (2-4), who was in trouble in each of his six innings. Scribner gave up a run and two hits over five innings, including Welington Castillo's solo shot in the top of the third.

CJ Cron hit a two-run homer to highlight a three-hit performance, and rookie Troy Scribner allowed one run in five innings as Los Angeles defeated Baltimore.

Benintendi finished the night 3-for-5 and is 11-for-22 (.500) in six games since sitting two games in a row to regroup last week. In the seventh, he allowed a single and a walk before being pulled. Tyler Duffey (1-3) relieved with two innings for his first victory of the season, and Dillon Gee struck out five over four scoreless innings for his first career save.

PIRATES 6, TIGERS 3: Andrew McCutchen hit his 23rd home run of the season and Pittsburgh downed Detroit at Pittsburgh. Staked to a 6-0 lead, Porcello was finally given some run support that has been missing all season. Martinez holds the franchise record with 313 strikeouts in 1999. Dozier added a double during a three-hit day, and Jorge Polanaco had two hits. After the game, he revealed that it wasn't until he returned to the dugout after the inning when he realized what he had done. Eflin (1-3) allowed two runs and seven hits.
