Astros: Trey Mancini homered in his first start for the Astros to back a sterling performanc­e by Jose Urquidy in a 6-1 win over the Red Sox. Mancini was traded from the Orioles on Monday to bolster the offense. In his first at-bat, he knocked a pitch from Rich Hill into the seats in left field for a two-run shot that made it 4-0 with no outs in the second inning. Urquidy allowed two hits and tied a career high with 10 strikeouts in seven shutout innings . ... DH Yordan Alvarez was not called out after a third strike in the third inning. Alvarez led off the inning by taking a ball against Rich Hill. After that, home plate umpire Jim Wolf called strike one, and Alvarez fouled off a pitch for strike two. Wolf then called the third strike, but didn’t punch him out. No one appeared to notice the mistake, as Alvarez remained in the box and Hill went back to the mound. Alvarez grounded out on the next pitch.

Phillies: Nick Castellano­s hit a two-run homer in the eighth as the Phillies took full advantage of an overturned call to beat the Braves 3-1. The Phillies appeared down to their final three outs when J.T. Realmuto grounded into what was ruled an inning-ending double play. But the Phillies challenged, and the replay showed Realmuto’s foot getting to the bag ahead of the relay throw while the tying run scored. Collin McHugh then grooved one to Castellano­s for the tiebreakin­g homer. Zack Wheeler claimed his 10th win of the season, giving up one run over seven innings.

Orioles: PH Terrin Vavra hit a tiebreakin­g RBI double in the eighth and the Orioles completed their first season series sweep against the Rangers with a 6-3 win.

They swept all three games in Texas like they did at home last month.

Twins: Trade acquisitio­n Jorge López earned his first save with his new team and newcomer Sandy León drove in two runs in a 4-1 win over the Tigers. Entering to a nice ovation, López, an All-Star acquired Tuesday from Baltimore, earned his 20th save of the season with a 1-2-3 ninth inning.
