Padres beat Dodgers 7-4 in Mexico
MONTERREY, Mexico (AP) The San Diego Padres rebounded nicely from Los Angeles‘ combined no-hitter, using two-run homers by Eric Hosmer and Raffy Lopez to beat the Dodgers 7-4 on Saturday night in the first major league series in Mexico since 1999.
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.
Josh Fields (2-1) allowed Lopez’s homer.
On Friday night, Walker Buehler and three relievers posted the 12th combined no-hitter in major league history, leading the Dodgers to a 4-0 victory.
NEW YORK (AP) – Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor’s double error led to a pair of runs in a four-run fifth inning off previously unhittable Trevor Bauer, and the Yankees won for the 14th time in 15 games.
New York is in its first 14-1 stretch since 1998 Yankees won 114 games during the regular season and then the first of three straight World Series titles.
Lindor put the Indians ahead in the fifth with his fourth homer in five games, but he has made three errors in the past two games.
Bauer (2-3) pitched six innings of two-hit ball. He was charged with four runs, two earned.
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.
ST. LOUIS (AP) – Kolten Wong hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning, lifting St. Louis to its fourth straight victory.
Velasquez (2-4) allowed one run and one hit in his first win since April 7. Hector Neris worked the ninth for his sixth save.
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.
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.
Alen Hanson homered and drove in four runs, Gorkys Hernandez had four hits and Brandon Crawford had three hits and two RBIs for the Giants. Ty Blach (3-3) gave up only one earned run in 7 2/3 innings.
Hanson’s second-inning double to center field drove in Brandon Belt and Crawford. Hanson pulled a pitch down the right-field line for a two-run homer in the third.
Smith (2-3) has been stingy in his last three starts, allowing only two runs and seven hits in 18 2/3 innings with 26 strikeouts.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – Khris Davis homered in the 12th inning, lifting Oakland to the win.
Rosario had four hits, including a two-run homer in the third inning and a two-run double in the fourth. Minnesota tagged Hector Santiago (0-1) for eight runs in 3 1/3 innings.
Lynn (1-3) allowed two runs in six innings.
