Brewers score three in 11th, top Dodgers
Travis Shaw homered and hit a gamewinning single, and the Brewers scored three runs in the 11th inning to beat the scuffling Los Angeles Dodgers 65 on Saturday night in Milwaukee.
Los Angeles, which has dropped three straight to Milwaukee, also lost starter Dustin May to an apparent injury after he had thrown just 27 pitches.
The game was tied at 2 after nine innings and 3all after 10. In the 11th, Drew Smith hit a tworun triple off Drew Rasmussen to give the Dodgers a 53 lead.
But Milwaukee loaded the bases with no outs after lefthander Alex Vesia (Cal State East Bay), who was recalled Saturday, started the inning with two walks. He was replaced by righthander Mitch White, who gave up a sacrifice fly to Kolten Wong, an RBI single to Avisail Garcia and the gamewinning hit to Shaw.
Rockies 14, D’backs 6: Dom Nunez hit a grand slam, Trevor Story had three hits that included a two-run homer and visiting Colorado pounded out 18 hits at Arizona. It was a good start to May for the Rockies, who had the most losses in the National League during April with a 9-17 record.
Angels 10, Mariners 5: Jared Walsh homered in consecutive innings, and Mike Trout hit his 28th long ball in Seattle for Los Angeles. Trout is the only Mariners opponent with more than 20 home runs in Seattle.
Mets 5, Phillies 4: Michael Conforto hit two-run double in the first inning and led off the ninth with a tie-breaking home run. The Mets caught a break when with one out in the bottom of the seventh, second base umpire Jose Navas ruled Andrew McCutchen ran out of the baseline to avoid an attempted tag by shortstop Francisco Lindor on what became an inning-ending double play. Replays showed McCutchen ran in a straight line from first to second.
Blue Jays 6, Braves 5: Randal Grichuk lined an RBI single in the 10th inning, George Springer hit his first two homers with Toronto, and the Blue Jays rallied in Dunedin, Fla. Springer, playing in his third game with Toronto, signed a $150 million, six-year free-agent contract in the offseason and missed time with muscle strains.
Cardinals 12, Pirates 5: Jack Flaherty pitched six solid innings to improve to 5-0 and Paul DeJong hit a three-run homer in the first inning for visiting St. Louis.
Nationals 7, Marlins 2: Patrick Corbin ended his 10-game losing streak, pitching seven solid innings for host Washington. Josh Bell hit a basesloaded double and drove in four runs, Yan Gomes had a two-run homer and Josh Harrison had three hits as Washington won its third in a row.
White Sox 7, Indians 3: Tim Anderson hit a grand slam, Leury Garcia drove in three runs from the No. 9 spot in the lineup and host Chicago beat Cleveland. Lance Lynn (2-1) allowed three runs over five innings in his return from the injured list for the White Sox, who have won seven of nine.
Cubs 3, Reds 2: Nico Hoerner hit a go-ahead single in the sixth inning and Chicago’s bullpen shut down host Cincinnati.
Royals 11, Twins 3: Andrew Benintendi hit two homers, Salvador Perez homered and drove in three runs, and visiting Kansas City cruised.
Astros 3, Rays 1: Jose Urquidy scattered four hits over seven shutout innings and visiting Houston made an early lead stand up. Jose Altuve doubled on the first pitch of the game, leading to a three-run inning. Houston got three hits in the first inning and only one more the rest of the game.
Yankees 6, Tigers 4: Jameson Taillon allowed one run and three hits and struck out eight over five innings to earn his first win in exactly two years, and Aaron Judge had three hits and three RBIs for host New York. Gleyber Torres also drove in three runs as the Yankees won for the sixth time in seven games. Taillon’s last win came on May 1, 2019, for Pittsburgh in his last outing before his second Tommy John surgery.
Rangers 8, Red Sox 6: Isiah Kiner-Falefa homered and had an RBI triple among his three hits, and Willie Calhoun’s three hits included a two-run homer as host Texas beat Boston.
