Hendriks gets first save since cancer as Giolito, White Sox top Yankees


NEW YORK >> Liam Hendriks earned his first save since returning from cancer, Lucas Giolito pitched six hitless innings and the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Yankees 3-2 on Tuesday night for their season-high fourth straight victory.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa ended Chicago’s combined no-hit bid with a two-out RBI double in the seventh off reliever Joe Kelly on a ball that fell between center fielder Luis Robert Jr. and left fielder Andrew Benintendi, allowing Willie Calhoun to score.

MARLINS 6, ROYALS 1>> Luis Arraez had two hits to raise his major league-leading batting average to .401 as Miami beat Kansas City.

Second in the NL East, the Marlins have won five straight to improve to 34-28 — the first time they’ve been six games over .500 since August 2016.

Jesús Luzardo (5-4) allowed two hits in seven innings, striking out eight. Miami scored five times in the fifth against Zack Grienke (1-6).

ATHLETICS 11, PIRATES 2 >> Jace Peterson homered twice on a five-hit night and drove in five runs, and Oakland beat Pittsburgh to snap a 15-game road losing streak.

The major league-worst A’s (13-50) broke open the game late behind Peterson, whose RBI single off Pirates ace Mitch Keller put Oakland ahead 3-2 in the sixth. Peterson gave Oakland a five-run lead with a two-run homer off Chase De Jong in the eighth, then added another two-run shot off De Jong in the ninth.

James Kaprielian (1-6) allowed two runs on four hits in six innings for his first win since last Oct. 2. The A’s had not won away from Oakland since beating the Los Angeles Angels 11-10 on April 24.

PHILLIES 1, TIGERS 0 >> Kyle Schwarber hit a leadoff homer, Taijuan Walker threw seven scoreless innings and Philadelph­ia won its fourth straight.

Walker (5-3) allowed two hits, Seranthony Dominguez worked the eighth and Craig Kimbrel completed the three-hitter, striking out the side in order for his ninth save in as many chances.

Four Tigers pitchers held the Phillies to three hits in a game that took 2 hours, 7 minutes.

Schwarber drove a 2-2 fastball from Tyler Alexander (1-1) to right-center in the first, his 16th homer this season and third this month. BLUE JAYS 5, ASTROS 1 >> Kevin Gausman matched his career high by striking out 13 over seven innings, George Springer, Bo Bichette and Daulton Varsho all homered, and Toronto beat Houston.

Gausman (5-3) gave up a leadoff homer to Mauricio Dubón on his second pitch but recovered to hold the Astros in check and win his third straight start.

The AL strikeout leader with 113, Gausman has struck out 10 or more a major league-leading six times this season. He gave up one run and four hits, striking out five of the final six batters he faced. The righthande­r didn’t issue a walk, the fourth time this season he’s done that.

Astros rookie Hunter Brown (5-3) lost consecutiv­e decisions for the first time, allowing three runs and three hits in six innings. RAYS 7, TWINS 0 >> Zach Eflin pitched into the seventh inning, Luke Raley tripled and homered, and major leaguebest Tampa Bay beat AL Central-leading Minnesota.

Eflin (8-1) allowed three hits and struck out nine over 6 2/3 innings.

Raley got his first career three-base hit, coming in his 102nd big league game, and scored in a three-run fourth. In the fifth inning, he hit a two-run shot off Louie Varland (3-2) that made it 5-0. DIAMONDBAC­KS 10, NATIONALS 5 >> Pavin Smith homered and drove in three runs as Arizona rallied against Washington’s beleaguere­d bullpen.

Josh Rojas also had three RBIs for Arizona, which moved ahead of Los Angeles for the NL West lead. The Diamondbac­ks (36-25) have won seven of nine.

Former Diamondbac­k Stone Garrett hit his first career grand slam for lastplace Washington, which has lost three in a row and six of eight.

Erasmo Ramirez (3-2) relieved starter Jake Irvin in the fifth and plunked Christian Walker with his first pitch, committed a balk and walked Emmanuel Rivera to load the bases. Arizona sandwiched a pair of sacrifice flies around Gabriel Moreno’s RBI single to make it 6-4.

José Ruiz (2-1) pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings.


Texas second baseman Marcus Semien had a go-ahead double to extend his majors-best hitting streak to 25 games and Dane Dunning won again since taking injured ace Jacob deGrom’s spot in the starting rotation as the AL Westleadin­g Rangers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-4 on Tuesday night.

Nathaniel Lowe and Adolis García hit solo homers for the Rangers (40-20), who have a five-game winning streak and the best start in Washington Senators/Texas franchise history. The most wins they had ever had through 60 games before this season was 37.
