A day after the first no-hitter ever outside the U.S. or Canada, Travis Jankowski led off the first with a triple for San Diego’s first hit of the series. Hosmer then hit a drive over the wall in right against Kenta Maeda.
Lopez’s first homer of the season erased a 4-3 Los Angeles lead in the sixth.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Craig Kimbrel became the quickest pitcher to reach 300 career saves, closing out Boston’s road win after it scored the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth inning.
Kimbrel worked a perfect ninth for his ninth save this season. His 300th save overall came in his 494th career appearance and 330th save opportunity, and just less than three weeks before his 30th birthday.
The Rangers had the bases loaded with one out in the eighth before Joe Kelly (1-0) struck out the only two batters he faced. He fanned Joey Gallo, the slugger who had already hit two impressive home runs, and then got Jurickson Profar on a called third strike.
Zimmermann (2-0) improved to 4-0 with a 1.48 ERA in seven appearances against the Royals. Shane Greene allowed an unearned run in the ninth before striking out Alcides Escobar and Jon Jay for his sixth save.
Castellanos had an RBI double as the Tigers scored three runs in the first inning off Jason Hammel (0-4).
SEATTLE (AP) – Ryon Healy scored Kyle Seager in the 11th inning with a single just fair down the left-field line and Seattle rallied twice in extra innings to beat Los Angeles.
The Angels took the lead in the 11th when Andrelton Simmons was safe on an infield single off Eric Goeddel (1-0) with two outs, allowing Mike Trout to score – the second straight inning the Angels took the lead with two outs.
Seattle answered immediately both times. In the 11th, Seattle got a run off Jim Johnson (2-1) before Healy turned on an 0-1 pitch from Eduardo Paredes. Zack Cozart made a diving attempt, but the ball ricocheted off his glove, and Seager scored with ease.
Pinch hitter David Dahl gave the Rockies an insurance run with a two-out RBI single off Robert Gsellman in the ninth, though left fielder Yoenis Cespedes threw out a runner at the plate on the play. Adam Ottavino and Wade Davis finished a six-hitter that took just under 2 1/2 hours, sealing Colorado’s fourth straight win.
Despite a solid start by Steven Matz (1-3), the staggering Mets fell to 0-5 on their six-game homestand.
Bettis (4-1) allowed six hits. Davis got his 13th save in 14 chances.
MILWAUKEE (AP) – Ryan Braun hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the eighth inning, helping Milwaukee to the win.
Braun, who entered as a pinch hitter in the seventh, drove a pitch from George Kontos (2-3) to the center-field wall to score Domingo Santana and Eric Sogard. Braun got a chance to bat after Kontos walked Sogard, batting .105, on four pitches.
Josh Hader (1-0) pitched the final two innings to pick up the win. He surrendered Starling Marte’s tying two-run homer in the top of the eighth, and then retired the Pirates in order in the ninth.
