Angels: Angels starter Reid Detmers became the first pitcher in seven years with a no-hitter and an immaculate inning in the same season, achieving the latter against the Rangers on Sunday. The Rangers matched the 1979 Giants as the only lineups to have three immaculate innings thrown against them in a season. The Astros got the Rangers for two immaculate innings in the same game June 15. Detmers, who pitched a no-hitter against the Rays on May 10, struck out three Rangers on nine pitches in the second inning for the 109th immaculate inning in baseball history.

Mariners: Star rookie Julio Rodríguez was placed on the injured list with a bruised right wrist Sunday after being hit by a pitch a night before. Manager Scott Servais said X-rays were negative, but that the center fielder was very sore and wouldn’t be able to hold a bat for at least five days. The team decided it was best to place him on the injured list so they could add another player to the roster. “I think everybody knows, your wrist, your hands, you know how sensitive that area is when you’ve got a bat,” Servais said. “And let’s do it right. Let’s make sure he’s fully healthy when he comes back.” Rodriguez was hit on the back of the hand as he swung at a pitch in the top of the eighth inning Saturday. He struck out but played in the field in the bottom half of the inning before being lifted in the ninth.

Mets: Mets star Jacob deGrom will make his season debut against the Nationals on Tuesday, manager Buck Showalter said before a series finale against the Marlins. “His workday went well today, a light side,” Showalter said Sunday. “The plans are for him to pitch Tuesday in Washington.” The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner has not pitched for the Mets since July 7, 2021. The 34-year-old right-hander was sidelined the final three months of last season with right forearm tightness and a sprained elbow, then was shut down late in spring training because of a stress reaction in his right scapula.

Braves: Austin Riley hit a run-scoring double off Mark Melancon in the ninth inning, giving the Braves a 1-0 victory over Arizona on Sunday and a three-game sweep of the Diamondbac­ks. Max Fried, Dylan Lee and Kenley Jansen combined on a four-hitter for the Braves, who at 62-41 moved 21 games over .500 for the first time since ending the 2019 at 97-65. Matt Olson singled with one out in the ninth against Melancon and scored when Riley’s double hit the fence in right-center on two hops. Olson slid headfirst, easily beating the throw.

Astros: Yordan Alvarez hit an RBI single with one out in the 10th inning to lift the Astros to a 3-2 win over the Mariners on Sunday. Mauricio Dubón started the 10th as the automatic runner on second and the Mariners intentiona­lly walked Jose Altuve. Dubón advanced to third on a sacrifice fly by Yuli Gurriel. Alvarez then laced a grounder off Brennan Bernardino, who was making his MLB debut, to left field to send Dubón home and start the celebratio­n. Hector Neris pitched a scoreless 10th for the win.

Blue Jays: Matt Chapman hit a two-run homer, José Berríos won his third straight decision and the Blue Jays beat the errorprone Tigers 4-1 Sunday. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette had RBI doubles for the Blue Jays, who have won 12 of 15 overall after taking three of four from the Tigers. The Jays (57-45) are a season-high 12 games above .500 for the third time, and the first time since the Blue Jays were 37-25 on June 15.
