MIAMI — Mike Trout sprained his left thumb stealing second base Sunday as the Los Angeles Angels took a thumping without him, losing 9-2 to the Miami Marlins.
Trout yelled in pain as he rose after sliding headfirst in the fifth inning. He was examined by a trainer, stayed in the game, but was replaced in the sixth. X-rays were negative and there was no immediate timetable regarding his return. The reigning American League MVP was 0 for 2 when he departed with the Angels trailing 4-2. He finished 2 for 9 in the series to drop his average to .337.
Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton had three hits, including his 13th home run, and J.T. Riddle hit his third homer and drove in three runs. Jose Urena (3-2) won despite a career-high six walks in five innings.
WHITE SOX 7, TIGERS 3
Miguel Gonzalez took a perfect game into the seventh inning while Todd Frazier hit a two-run homer as the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers.
Gonzalez (4-5) allowed three runs and six hits in 7 2/3 innings while breaking a five-start losing streak. The right-hander retired his first 18 batters before Andrew Romine led off the seventh with a hard one-hop liner to shortstop Tim Anderson, who couldn’t field the ball cleanly and was originally charged with an error. Alex Avila followed with a single, and Romine’s ball was later changed to a hit.
YANKEES 9, ATHLETICS 5
Aaron Judge hit his first career grand slam as the New York Yankees took full advantage of Oakland’s shoddy defense.
Michael Pineda (6-2) tossed six innings of three-hit ball to win his third straight start. Aaron Hicks and Chris Carter each had an early sacrifice fly as the AL East leaders scored five unearned runs and took two of three in a well-pitched series.
RAYS 8, TWINS 6, 15 INNINGS
Evan Longoria and Logan Morrison hit back-to-back homers in the 15th inning after Steven Souza Jr. drove in the tying run with a single with two outs in the ninth as the Tampa Bay Rays outlasted the Minnesota Twins in a game that lasted 6 hours, 26 minutes.
In the longest game in Target Field history, Minnesota resorted to using Wednesday’s scheduled starter, Hector Santiago (4-4), in the 15th. He allowed the decisive home runs on consecutive pitches to the first two batters of the inning.
RANGERS 3, BLUE JAYS 1
Joey Gallo hit his 15th home run and Andrew Cashner posted a rare road win as the Texas Rangers beat the Toronto Blue Jays to snap their longest losing streak of the season at five.
Toronto had won five in a row.
INDIANS 10, ROYALS 1
Jason Kipnis went 4 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs while Josh Tomlin pitched his first complete game in two years as the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals.
Austin Jackson drove in three runs for Cleveland and Carlos Santana had three hits and two RBIs. Michael Brantley and Jose Ramirez also had three hits apiece.
MARINERS 5, RED SOX 0
Christian Bergman rebounded from a miserable start with seven shutout innings as the Seattle Mariners halted Boston’s season-high six-game winning streak.
Bergman (2-2) allowed four hits, walked two and struck out two. Robinson Cano hit a two-run homer and Guillermo Heredia a solo shot for the Mariners, who averted a three-game sweep with just their second win in nine games. Seattle was shut out the first two games.
PADRES 5, NATIONALS 3
Ryan Schimpf hit a two-run homer as the San Diego Padres avoided a three-game sweep by beating the Washington Nationals.
The Padres had only one run and six hits with 31 strikeouts in back-to-back losses in games started by Washington’s Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg to begin the series. San Diego bounced back by matching its season high with 14 hits, with 12 coming off starter Joe Ross (2-1).
DODGERS 9, CUBS 4
Cody Bellinger and Kike Hernandez led an offensive outburst with three-run homers that upstaged the anticipated duel between aces Jon Lester and Clayton Kershaw to help the Dodgers beat Chicago and sweep the Cubs in three games at home for the first time since August 2012.
Lester and Kershaw were rocked for 10 runs and 18 hits in a combined 7 2/3 innings of their first career matchup. The left-handers that own three World Series titles (Lester), three Cy Young Awards (Kershaw) and 10 All-Star nods failed to retire the side in order in any inning. Lester (3-3) gave up six runs and seven hits in 3 1/3 innings for Chicago. Kershaw allowed four runs and a career high-tying 11 hits in 4 1/3 innings. The Cubs stranded 10 runners against him.
REDS 8, PHILLIES 4
Adam Duvall hit a pair of two-run homers while Patrick Kivlehan had two solo shots as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Philadelphia Phillies.
Scott Schebler also connected for the Reds and Scott Feldman (4-4) allowed four runs and eight hits in five innings. The Reds took two of three to win a series in Philadelphia for the first time since August 2006.
ROCKIES 8, CARDINALS 4
Gerardo Parra hit a three-run homer as the Colorado Rockies beat the St. Louis Cardinals.
Colorado built a 4-0 lead on Alexi Amarista’s run-scoring groundout in the second and Parra’s drive in the fourth off Lance Lynn (4-3). St. Louis got back into it on homers from Jedd Gyorko and Greg Garcia in the sixth. Tommy Pham’s solo shot to center off Chris Rusin in the seventh made it 4-3.
ASTROS 8, ORIOLES 4
George Springer homered during a six-run second inning, sending Lance McCullers and the Houston Astros over Baltimore for the Orioles’ season-worst seventh straight loss.
Springer connected for the second straight game, helping the Astros overcome a 3-0 deficit against Alec Asher (1-3).
BREWERS 9, DIAMONDBACKS 5
Domingo Santana hit his first career grand slam as the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers held off the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Nelson (3-3) departed after striking out 10 in seven innings and Arizona scored four times in the eighth off relievers Oliver Drake and Carlos Torres. With the tying run at the plate, Jacob Barnes forced pinch-hitter Paul Goldschmidt to fly out to end the threat. Barnes also worked the ninth for his second save this year.
GIANTS 7, BRAVES 1
Johnny Cueto pitched six strong innings and Brandon Crawford drove in three runs for the Giants.
Cueto (5-4) bounced back from his roughest stretch with San Francisco. The two-time All-Star was 0-3 with a 4.33 ERA in his previous four starts.
METS 7, PIRATES 2
Matt Harvey pitched one-run ball over six innings to win his second straight start as New York beat Pittsburgh.
The one-time Mets ace, hampered by injuries and off-field issues the last two seasons, scattered six hits, struck out four and walked two. (Associated Press)
