The New York Yankees crushed the Toronto Blue Jays 20-6 to move back into second place in the MLB's American League (AL) East.

After a poor run of form threatened to eliminate the Yankees from playoff contention, the Yankees are back to their best following six consecutive wins.

The Yankees humbled AL East rivals the Blue Jays on Tuesday thanks to DJ LeMahieu and Luke Voit, who became the first players at the top of New York's batting order to have five RBIs in the same game.

Voit homered twice to improve his MLB-leading total to 18 and LeMahieu had four hits to go with his five RBIs in New York, where the Yankees used a seven-run second-inning to see off the Blue Jays.

The Yankees also welcomed back All-Star slugger Giancarlo Stanton from injury, following a 32-game absence.

Christian Yelich, meanwhile, returned to form with a home run and three hits as the Milwaukee Brewers routed the St Louis Cardinals 18-3.

Trailing 1-0 in the opening inning, Yelich and Ryan Braun hit back-to-back solo homers to fuel the Brewers in Milwaukee.


Senzatela pitches complete game, Duvall stays hot

Antonio Senzatela pitched the first complete game of his career as the Colorado Rockies beat the Oakland Athletics 3-1. He allowed six hits and retired his last eight batters against the AL West-leading Athletics.

Adam Duvall equalled an Atlanta Braves record with his 10th home run in September. Duvall hit a homer in the fourth inning for his 15th of the season and 10th of the month, matching the franchise mark for September shared by Dale Murphy (1983) and Chipper Jones (1999).

Ryan Yarbrough snapped a personal 16-game winless streak as the AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays topped World Series champions the Washington Nationals 6-1.


Woeful Walker

It was a rough outing for Taijuan Walker and the Blue Jays. Walker lasted just 1.6 innings and allowed seven runs, one earned, and six hits. He also allowed back-to-back homers to Voit and Aaron Hicks. Team-mate Shun Yamaguchi also struggled, allowing seven runs on two hits in 1.3 innings.

The Orioles became the first team in American League (AL) history to score one run or less in four straight games, then score 14-plus in their next outing, according to STATS.


Minor magic, Lewis delivers amazing catch

After struggling at the start of the season with the Texas Rangers, Mike Minor was traded to the Oakland Athletics last month. He produced a fine start in a 9-0 win over the Seattle Mariners on Monday, striking out eight in seven innings. The Mariners won the first game of a doubleheader.

In the second game, Mariners right fielder Kyle Lewis produced an incredible catch to rob Ramon Laureano of a grand slam.

Mills struck out five and walked just three as he threw a no-hitter in the Chicago Cubs' 12-0 thrashing of the Milwaukee Brewers.

He got just five swings and misses all game, which is the equal fewest (since pitches were first tracked in 1988) in a no-hitter alongside Dallas Braden in 2010, according to STATS.

It was the 16th no-hitter in the Cubs' history.

Mills got plenty of support as Victor Caratini and David Bote each had three RBIs for the Cubs.

Pujols crushed his 660th career homer in the Los Angeles Angels' 5-3 win over the Colorado Rockies.

He moved into equal fifth all-time for most home runs, alongside Willie Mays.


Clevinger shines as Braves beat Scherzer, Nationals

Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer struck out 10 over 5.1 innings, but he gave up nine hits and six runs in an 8-4 loss to the Atlanta Braves.

Luke Voit starred with the bat and Gerrit Cole pitched a two-hitter as the New York Yankees swept Friday's doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles in MLB.

Voit hit a pair of three-run homers to lead the Yankees to a 10-1 rout of American League (AL) East rivals the Orioles in game two.

The Yankees star took his season tally to 16 home runs, tying Los Angeles Angels slugger Mike Trout for the most in MLB.

It came after Yankees ace Cole inspired a 6-0 victory over the Orioles in the opening game.

Cole threw a seven-inning two-hitter, striking out nine and walking one, not permitting a hit until the fifth inning.

In Buffalo, the New York Mets showed no mercy in an 18-1 demolition of the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Mets used a 10-run fourth inning to humble the Blue Jays, behind Jacob deGrom's impressive display.

Mets star and two-time National League (NL) Cy Young Award winner DeGrom struck out nine and held the Blue Jays to just three hits, two walks and a first-inning run.

On the 19th anniversary of the September 11 attacks in New York, the Mets and Yankees outscored their opponents by 32 runs. Per STATS, it is the largest combined scoring margin the Mets and Yankees have ever had on a single day. The last time New York's MLB teams had that big of a margin on a day was in 1950.


Rays in MLB first

The Tampa Bay Rays named nine left-handed batters in their starting line-up – a first in modern MLB history. Tampa Bay went on to beat the Boston Red Sox 11-1.

Shane Bieber recorded his 100th strikeout of the season in just 62.3 innings. No pitcher has reached the mark faster than Bieber, but the Cleveland Indians lost 3-1 to the Minnesota Twins.

Voit became the second player in Yankees history to hit a three-run homer or grand slam off the same relief pitcher twice in the same game, according to STATS. The other was Babe Ruth in 1929.

Eloy Jimenez clubbed a three-run homer in a four-run sixth inning as the Chicago White Sox edged the Detroit Tigers 4-3.

Mike Trout hit his MLB-leading 16th home run of the season as the Los Angeles Angels defeated the struggling Texas Rangers 6-2.

Three-time American League (AL) MVP Trout homered in the fifth inning to give the Angels a 4-1 lead on Thursday – a 449-foot shot into the second deck.

Angels rookie Jared Walsh also homered for the third time in five games after his go-ahead three-run effort in the opening inning at Globe Life Field.

The Angels (18-27) are fourth in the AL West, five games adrift of the New York Yankees (22-21) in the race for the final playoff spot, while the Rangers (15-28) are last in the division.

A two-run homer from Carson Kelly helped the Arizona Diamondbacks top the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2.

Arizona's rare win over the Dodgers snapped a seven-game losing streak against the Los Angeles franchise.


Freeman hits a pair in rally

Freddie Freeman homered twice for the National League (NL) East-leading Atlanta braves, who overturned a five-run deficit to beat World Series champions the Washington Nationals 7-6.

Brady Singer flirted with a no-hitter in just his ninth MLB start as the Kansas City Royals routed the Cleveland Indians 11-1. Singer carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning. He finished with eight shut-out innings on 119 pitches.


Cahill struggles

Trevor Cahill was charged with the loss in the San Francisco Giants' 6-1 defeat to the San Diego Padres. He pitched three innings, allowing four runs and five hits.

Orioles at Yankees

After Thursday's clash was postponed due to severe weather, the Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees will meet in a doubleheader on Friday. Yankees ace Gerrit Cole starts game one, with Alex Cobb on the mound for the Orioles.

Adam Duvall made MLB history as the Atlanta Braves humbled the Miami Marlins 29-9 in a merciless performance.

Duvall became the first player in league history to hit a two-run homer, a three-run homer and a grand slam in a game in that order, according to STATS.

The Braves produced a National League (NL)-record 29-run outburst against the Marlins on Wednesday, fuelled by an 11-run second inning in Atlanta.

Duvall, Travis d'Arnaud and Ozzie Albies all hit home runs for the Braves, who tied the record for the second most runs in a game in the modern era (since 2000) – falling just short of the Texas Rangers' 30 against the Baltimore Orioles in 2007.

The Milwaukee Brewers also won big, embarrassingly shutting out the Detroit Tigers in a 19-0 triumph.

A pair of Jedd Gyorko home runs and homers from Jacob Nottingham, Ryan Braun and Tyrone Taylor sparked the Brewers, who tallied their most runs in a game since scoring 20 in 2010.


Bauer pitches gem

Trevor Bauer inspired the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 win over the Chicago Cubs. Bauer struck out 10 over 7.2 innings at Wrigley Field, where he only allowed three runs without a walk.

James McCann homered twice for the first multi-homer game of his career to help the Chicago White Sox rout the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-1.


Lopez has game to forget

A four-run seventh inning brought the Dodgers level as Gavin Lux, Edwin Rios and Mookie Betts all had RBIs.

And they broke the game open in the 10th inning, highlighted by Lux's three-run homer as they took a 10-9 lead before holding on.

Clayton Kershaw reached a milestone in MLB on Thursday, while Mike Clevinger's San Diego Padres debut did not go to plan.

Kershaw, 32, became the third youngest pitcher in MLB history to reach 2,500 strikeouts, as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-1.

The left-hander struck out eight in six innings, giving up just one hit in another impressive performance.

Only Hall of Famers Nolan Ryan (31 years, 101 days) and Walter Johnson (31 years, 197 days) were younger than Kershaw when they achieved the feat.

Traded to the Padres on Monday, Clevinger made his debut in a 2-0 loss to the Los Angeles Angels.

Adam Duvall hit three home runs as the Atlanta Braves made history in MLB, while the Tampa Bay Rays enjoyed a win.

Duvall went deep three times as the Braves beat the Boston Red Sox 7-5 on Wednesday.

Incredibly, it came a day after team-mate Marcell Ozuna achieved the same feat for the Braves.

They joined Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig (1930) as the only team-mates in MLB history to have three-homer games on back-to-back days, and they are the first to do it in back-to-back games, as per STATS.

Duvall went three-for-four with five RBIs as the Braves improved to 22-14.
