Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Didi Gre­go­rius lined a go-ahead sin­gle in the 16th in­ning as the New York Yan­kees out­lasted the Bos­ton Red Sox 4-1 Satur­day in the long­est game be­tween the bit­ter ri­vals at Fen­way Park since 1966. Matt Hol­l­i­day hit a ty­ing home run off Craig Kim­brel in the ninth that cleared the Green Mon­ster, and it took 5 hours, 50 min­utes and 512 pitches to fin­ish. Bos­ton starter Chris Sale struck out 13 in 7 2/3 score­less in­nings of three-hit ball. Luis Sev­erino gave up Mitch More­land’s sac­ri­fice fly in the third. Bos­ton protested over the lack of an in­ter­fer­ence call on Hol­l­i­day at first base in the 11th.


Travis Shaw broke an eighth-in­ning tie against Joaquin Benoit (1-4) with his 20th homer as Milwaukee (52-41) moved a sea­son-high 11 games over .500. Ja­cob Barnes (2-1) es­caped an eight­in­ning jam thanks to a slick dou­ble play af­ter he walked two bat­ters. Corey Knebel pitched the ninth for his 16th save. He struck out Tommy Joseph for his 45th con­sec­u­tive ap­pear­ance with a strike­out to start the sea­son, a ma­jor league record.


Cody Bellinger be­came the first Dodgers rookie to hit for the cy­cle while Alex Wood be­came the first Dodgers pitcher in more than a cen­tury to win his first 11 de­ci­sions in a sea­son, help­ing the NL West lead­ers ex­tend their win­ning streak to eight. Bellinger sin­gled in the first, hit a two-run homer in the third, added an RBI dou­ble in the fourth and hit his sec­ond ca­reer triple on the first pitch of the sev­enth, be­com­ing the ninth player in the Dodgers’ 128-year his­tory to hit for the cy­cle. Wood (11-0) struck out 10 in six score­less in­nings, al­lowed only four baserun­ners and low­ered his ERA to 1.56 in 16 games this year. An an­gry Yasiel Puig took sev­eral steps to­ward the mound af­ter he was nearly hit by a pitch from Jose Urena (7-4) in the first in­ning. Puig hit two home runs in Los An­ge­les’ win Fri­day.


Madi­son Bum­gar­ner al­lowed four hits over seven in­nings, in­clud­ing home runs by Matt Szczur and Jabari Blash, in his first start since be­ing in­jured in a dirt bike ac­ci­dent. He left with the score tied at 3-3. Bum­gar­ner was mak­ing his first start since April 19 at Kansas City. The next day, he wiped out while rid­ing a dirt bike on a day off in Den­ver, sprain­ing the AC joint in his left shoul­der and suf­fer­ing bruised ribs. Hec­tor Sanchez hit a two-run homer in the ninth against Cory Gear­rin (3-3), send­ing San Fran­cisco to its six loss in eight games.


Mak­ing his first ap­pear­ance at Cam­den Yards since he was traded by Bal­ti­more four years ago, Jake Ar­ri­eta (9-7) walked three in the first two in­nings, then set­tled down to hold the Ori­oles to four hits over 6 2/3 in­nings. Ad­di­son Rus­sell home­red for the sec­ond straight game and Al­bert Almora and An­thony Rizzo also went deep for Chicago, which hit eight homers in win­ning the first two games of the se­ries.


An­thony Ren­don hit his sec­ond ca­reer grand slam and added a two-run homer as Wash­ing­ton over­came Scooter Gen­nett’s four-RBI night. Ryan Raburn home­red to lead off the sev­enth, spark­ing a seven-run out­burst capped by Ren­don’s 18th homer as the Na­tion­als took a 10-0 lead. Max Scherzer (11-5) fin­ished with 10 strike­outs in six in­nings, his 12th game of the sea­son and 61st of his ca­reer with at least 10. He is­sued a sea­son-high four walks while al­low­ing three hits.


Jay Bruce and pitcher Seth Lugo home­red dur­ing an early bar­rage that sent Colorado to its 15th loss in 20 games. Jose Reyes also went deep and Lu­cas Duda had a two-run dou­ble as New York took full ad­van­tage of a calf in­jury that knocked Tyler Chat­wood (6-11) from the game af­ter one out, 19 pitches and three walks.


J.D. Martinez had five RBIs with a two-run sin­gle and a three-run homer while Michael Ful­mer (10-6) won his fourth straight start, giv­ing up one run and two hits in eight in­nings. Fran­cisco Liri­ano (5-5) al­lowed five runs, three hits and four walks in twoplus in­nings.


Lance Lynn (8-6) al­lowed eight hits in 6 1/3 in­nings and hit a run-scor­ing dou­ble. Lynn hasn’t al­lowed a run in his last 13 1/3 in­nings. Jame­son Tail­lon (5-3) lost for the first time in nearly a month, giv­ing up four runs in five in­nings and match­ing his sea­son high by al­low­ing eight hits. Pitts­burgh left nine run­ners on base and went 1 for 10 with run­ners in scor­ing po­si­tion.


Lit­tle-used Lane Adams drove in three runs with a go-ahead, pinch-hit, bases-loaded dou­ble in the sixth. Adams was hit­ting only .214 in 28 at-bats be­fore his dou­ble to the left-field wall off Ran­dall Del­gado (1-2) cleared the bases. Ian Krol (2-2) recorded the fi­nal out in the sixth, and Jim John­son pitched a per­fect ninth for his 21st save.


Nel­son Cruz and Kyle Sea­ger home­red as Seat­tle over­came three er­rors to win their third straight. Felix Her­nan­dez (5-3) plunked Jose Abreu twice and threw a wild pitch. But Cruz’s two-run shot off An­thony Swarzak (4-3) - just the sec­ond homer al­lowed by the re­liever this sea­son - made it 4-3 Mariners in the sixth. Steve Cishek, Tony Zych and Nick Vin­cent each pitched a score­less in­ning be­fore Ed­win Diaz fin­ished for his 15th save in 18 chances. The right-han­der struck out Abreu with run­ners on first and sec­ond for the fi­nal out.


Brian Dozier home­red and Ed­die Rosario hit a tiebreak­ing two-run dou­ble off Tony Sipp in the sixth af­ter Min­nesota loaded the bases against Joe Mus­grove (4-8).

Shin-Soo Choo flared a lazy fly ball down the left-field line for a sin­gle with one out in the ninth, driv­ing in the only run off Danny Duffy (5-6) as Texas won its 12th straight win over Kansas City dat­ing to last July. Duffy and Cole Hamels matched each other through seven in­nings and Jose Le­clerc (2-2) re­lieved Hamels with two out in the eighth.


Khris Davis hit his 25th homer, a two-run shot in the ninth off Bryan Shaw af­ter An­drew Miller (3-3) walked Yon­der Alonso. Rookie third base­man Matt Chap­man home­red twice and scored three runs while Ra­jai Davis added an RBI sin­gle for the A’s.


Alex Cobb (8-6) gave up one run, six hits and three walks in 7 2/3 in­nings. Af­ter sur­ren­der­ing a ca­reer-high nine earned runs on June 3 to fall to 4-5 with a 4.52 ERA, Cobb has gone 4-1 with a 2.16 ERA in his last seven starts. Mor­ri­son hit a two-run homer in the third to give him 59 RBIs this sea­son. Steven Souza added a solo home run. —AP
