Trout hits 1st HR at Fenway, Angels rout Red Sox 12-4
Justin Upton added a three-run homer in the first inning.
With his 428-foot drive over the Green Monster in the sixth inning, Trout has now homered in every American League ballpark. He had played 21 games in Boston without connecting.
Trout was replaced in the seventh, having been hit in his shoulder by a pitcher earlier in the game.
The Angels added seven runs in a sloppy seventh inning by Boston in which it issued two walks, hit two batters and gave up four singles. The Red Sox also had an error and a passed ball.
Taylor Cole (2-3) pitched 1 2/3 innings of scoreless relief to pick up the win.
Rick Porcello (10-9) took the loss, giving up both home runs. He lasted five innings, allowing five earned runs off five hits, walking one and striking out four.
NEW YORK (AP) — Luis Guillorme hit his first big league homer — a tying shot leading off the eighth — J.D. Davis added a go-ahead sacrifice fly and New York beat Washington for its eighth straight victory.
The Mets have won 15 of 16 and are on their best roll since a 16-1 run in 1990. They pulled within a half-game of Washington for the first NL wild card.
After two more Mets reached against Rodney (0-5), Daniel Hudson relieved. He got one out, intentionally walked slugger Pete Alonso, and then Davis hit a drive to deep right field that brought in newcomer Joe Panik for the tiebreaking run.
Seth Lugo (5-2) took the loss.
The win was the eighth straight for the Astros, who became the latest team to feast on the reeling Orioles. Baltimore has allowed a major league-leading 240 homers and lost five straight.
It was the second 20-run game in Astros history. Houston also beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 21-5 on Oct. 2, 2015. The 13 extra-base hits set a franchise record.
Alex Bregman, who went 3 for 3, and Alvarez set the tone with back-to-back homers in the first inning. Alvarez added the grand slam in the seventh and a two-run shot in the ninth.
Yuli Gurriel tied a career-high with four hits for Houston.
Aaron Sanchez (5-14) allowed one run and three hits with six strikeouts and three walks over five innings.
Samardzija (9-9) gave up one run, struck out five and walked none. He retired 20 straight after giving up a solo homer to Corey Dickerson with two outs in the top of the first inning.
Vince Velasquez (4-7) gave up three runs in five innings of three-hit ball. He struck out three and walked one.
Will Smith worked around a hit and walk in the ninth to notch his 28th save in 30 tries.
The Blue Jays trailed 4-3 in the seventh when Bo Bichette drew a one-out walk, Cavan Biggio singled and Guerrero Jr. grounded the ball down the first base line and into foul territory. Right fielder Aaron Judge initially mishandled the ball against a side wall, and Guerrero slid in safely for the first triple of his career.
Adam Ottavino (5-4) allowed a run for the first time in 16 appearances, a streak that dated to July 2 against the Mets.
Teoscar Hernandez hit a three-run home run for the Blue Jays.
Montgomery (2-5) picked up his first win of the year as a starter, allowing four singles without walking a batter. He struck out 10 Royals for Seattle on June 13, 2015.
Spencer Turnbull (3-10) pitched six innings, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk.
Playing in front of a season-high home crowd of 29,720, the Marlins erased a 6-2 deficit by scoring four in the bottom of the ninth.
Ramirez led off the 10th with a single off Atlanta reliever Sean Newcomb (5-2). Ramirez advanced two bases on an errant pickoff throw by Newcomb. Prado lifted a fly ball deep to left field that scored Ramirez with the winning run.
Jeff Brigham (2-1) pitched a perfect 10th for the win.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Adam Wainwright gave up a home run on the first pitch of the game and St. Louis held on to beat Pittsburgh.
The contending Cardinals won their second in a row after ending a five-game losing streak.
Wainwright (8-8) allowed six hits, including the home run by Adam Frazier, and struck out eight in six innings. He improved to 6-2 this season at home.

Pedro Payano (1-1) was charged with three runs on five hits and three walks over three innings.
Aquino came up twice more with a chance to match the major league record for home runs in a game. He drew a four-pitch walk with nothing close to the plate and struck out in his final at-bat.
Aquino has hit seven homers in his first 10 games, tying the big league mark set by Trevor Story in 2016.
Kyle Hendricks (8-9) gave up seven runs and a season-high 12 hits in only 2 2/3 innings.
Sonny Gray (6-6) allowed two hits in six innings and singled home a pair of runs as the Reds piled up 18 hits.
CHICAGO (AP) — Reynaldo López pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning, Eloy Jiménez homered on his bobblehead night and Chicago beat Tanner Roark and Oakland.
López (7-9) allowed six hits, struck out three and walked three in his second straight win.
Oakland pulled within one when Chad Pinder and Marcus Semien scored on third baseman Ryan Goins‘ two-out error in the ninth. But Alex Colomé struck out Khris Davis with the bases loaded to earn his 23rd save in 24 chances.
The A’s got another solid performance from Roark (7-8) allowed three runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings in his second start since he was acquired in a trade with Cincinnati on July 31.

Margot’s 10th homer came an inning after Yonder Alonso hit a tying, two-run pinch-hit homer for the Rockies, who have lost five straight and 19 of their last 25 to drop a season-worst 13 games under .500.
Andres Muñoz (1-1) pitched the eighth for the win and All-Star Kirby Yates worked the ninth for his 33rd save.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Max Kepler and Marwin Gonzalez homered, Jake Odorizzi earned his career-high 13th victory and Minnesota broke a tie with Cleveland atop the AL Central, beating the Indians to snap a four-game losing streak.
