But Manny Machado was the hero with a stunning walk-off grand slam in the 10th inning.

Bauer, DeGrom in fine form

Trevor Bauer's fine season continued. The Cincinnati Reds pitcher struck out nine and conceded just one hit in seven innings in a 5-0 win over the Kansas City Royals.

Starting for the first time since August 9, Jacob deGrom looked in good form. He struck out seven and gave up four hits in six innings as the New York Mets beat the Miami Marlins 5-3.

The Los Angeles Dodgers extended their winning streak in MLB, while the New York Yankees fell to the Tampa Bay Rays in the team's first home loss of the season.

Tuesday's 2-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners made it seven successive wins for the in-form Dodgers.

Minnesota went on to pip the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 in a wild walk off after 12 innings.

Behind Mike Ford's home run and three-RBI performance, the Yankees claimed their ninth consecutive victory against the Red Sox – their longest such streak since 1952-53. The Yankees are also 9-0 at Yankee Stadium this season, which is just the third time the team have enjoyed such a start in franchise history.

Debutant Keibert Ruiz homered in his first MLB at-bat as the Los Angeles Dodgers swept the Los Angeles Angels with an 8-3 triumph. Ruiz hit a home run in the third inning – the seventh time a Dodgers player has homered in his first career at-bat and first time since Garey Ingram in 1994.

Toronto rallied from 8-0 down and levelled the MLB encounter at 11-11 in the bottom of the eighth inning after homering in six straight innings on Wednesday.

However, Magneuris Sierra hit the go-ahead single in the 10th inning to spare the Marlins' blushes away to the relocated Blue Jays in Buffalo midweek.

Per STATS, the Blue Jays became the first team in MLB history to have at least 18 hits and seven home runs in a game and still lose.

DJ LeMahieu starred again as the New York Yankees beat the Atlanta Braves 6-3.

In the absence of All-Star slugger Aaron Judge, LeMahieu had four hits in five at-bats – raising his average to an American League (AL)-leading .431 – to help the Yankees complete a two-game interleague sweep.

Ramon Laureano made three fine catches and the Oakland Athletics homered three times to top the Los Angeles Angels 8-4 on the road. Stephen Piscotty, Matt Olson and Robbie Grossman homered for the Athletics.

Jays' Pearson struggles

It was a difficult outing for rookie pitcher Nate Pearson. He allowed seven runs – four earned – on five hits and four walks, while striking out one across 2.1 innings.

Charlie Blackmon's streak came to an end in the Colorado Rockies' 13-7 defeat against the Arizona Diamondbacks. He went 0 for four, ending his hitting streak at 15 games. His average dipped to .472, having entered the contest batting at .500.

 

Soto bests his own effort

After his monster home run on Monday, Washington Nationals star Juan Soto went long again.

Frankie Montas led the Oakland Athletics to an eighth straight win in MLB on Saturday.

Suspended for 80 games last season after testing positive to a performance-enhancing substance, Montas continued his return to prominence with another fine performance in a 3-1 victory over the Houston Astros.

The 27-year pitched seven scoreless innings and struck out five, while Marcus Semien hit a homer in the first inning for the AL West leaders.

Gerritt Cole struck out 10 Tampa Bay Rays batters before being pulled a single out short of qualifying for a 20th successive regular-season win, but the New York Yankees still claimed an 8-4 victory in the opening game of their doubleheader.

They had considerably less success in the second game, suffering a 5-3 defeat and losing Giancarlo Stanton to a hamstring injury.

Manager Aaron Boone and hitting coach Marcus Thames were both ejected.

 

Soler steals the show

Jorge Soler blasted two homers in back-to-back innings to light up the Kansas City Royals' 9-6 win over the Minnesota Twins.

Jake Arrieta threw six shutout innings to help secure the Philadelphia Phillies a dominant 5-0 win against the Atlanta Braves.

J.D. Davis hammered a crucial three-run homer in the seventh inning to inspire the New York Mets to an 8-4 victory over the Miami Marlins.

Meanwhile, Juan Soto homered for the first time this season - and tied Mickey Mantle for the eighth-most opposite-field shots before the age of 22 - but the Washington Nationals lost 5-3 against the Baltimore Orioles.

No relief for Nationals

Austin Voth's strong start for the Nationals came to nothing against the Orioles after relievers Sean Doolittle and Daniel Hudson gave up three homers between them. Doolittle went the distance on consecutive pitches.

 

Harper heroics

Bryce Harper played his part for the Phillies with a stunning diving catch.

Yankees at Rays

Milwaukee Brewers star Christian Yelich hit an inside-the-park home run in an 8-3 MLB win over the Chicago White Sox.

Yelich recorded the first inside-the-park homer of his career as the Brewers beat the White Sox on Thursday.

The 2018 National League MVP, who signed a nine-year, $215million contract extension in March, took advantage of Eloy Jimenez's struggles in the fifth inning.

Yelich walked four times against the White Sox as he became the first MLB player to have an inside-the-park home run and four walks in a game since Dode Paskert in 1912, per STATS.

The Cleveland Indians, meanwhile, dismantled the Cincinnati Reds 13-0.

Jose Ramirez became the first player in MLB history to homer from both sides of the plate in a game twice within his team's first 15 games of a season, via STATS.

 

Ohtani homers, Mattingly becomes Marlins' winningest manager

Unable to pitch due to a shoulder injury, Los Angeles Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani homered in his first plate appearance since being shut down on the mound in a 6-1 rout of the Seattle Mariners. Ohtani smashed a Taijuan Walker pitch to the opposite side of the field in the second inning. Angels team-mate Dylan Bundy also struck out 10 batters in his third complete game of his career.

Don Mattingly became the winningest manager in Miami Marlins history after his team edged the Baltimore Orioles 8-7. The Marlins, who had their season postponed due to a coronavirus outbreak, are now 6-1 following a 57-105 win-loss campaign in 2019. They are the first team to start 6-1 or better through seven games after recording 105-plus losses the previous season since the St Louis Perfectos began 7-0 in 1899.

The Philadelphia Phillies split their series with the high-flying New York Yankees after winning 5-4 thanks to J.T. Realmuto's three-run homer.

 

Reds' woes continue

The Reds were put to the sword by the Indians. Cincinnati failed to score in the final 23 innings of the home-and-home series.

 

Markakis opts in and delivers walk-off

Having initially decided to sit out the season, Nick Markakis returned and produced an epic 4-3 walk-off win for the Atlanta Braves against the Toronto Blue Jays. Markakis, who announced his intention to opt out on July 6, delivered for the Braves in the ninth inning.
