The Yan­kees tied a ma­jor-league record with five home runs in an in­ning and hit six over­all in a 10-8 win over the Blue Jays that ex­tended their win­ning streak to eight. The Yan­kees set a ma­jor­league record for most home runs in a three-game span with 19 and be­came the first team with six or more home runs in three straight games.

The Rays clinched a re­turn trip to the post­sea­son with a dou­ble­header sweep against the Ori­oles.

The Padres’ three-game se­ries against the Mariners, orig­i­nally sched­uled to be­gin Fri­day in Seat­tle, was moved to San Diego’s Petco Park be­cause of air-qual­ity is­sues in Wash­ing­ton state.

Phillies right-han­der Jake Ar­ri­eta will miss the rest of the reg­u­lar sea­son be­cause of a strained right ham­string.
