Baltimore erased an early four-run Tampa Bay lead to take an 8-6 win in Game 2 of their day-night doubleheader to earn a sweep. Matt Wieters homered twice, Adam Jones and Chris Davis hit solo shots and Davis delivered the go-ahead single for the O's.
Jose Altuve homered in a four-hit night and drove in three runs, and the Astros bolted to a huge early lead for the second straight game in a 13-5 victory over the Royals on Saturday night at Kauffman Stadium.
In the 16-year history of Beat the Streak, no player has been able to achieve the game's ultimate goal by putting together a 57-game hit streak and surpassing Joe DiMaggio's record 56-game hitting streak in 1941. But now, 63-year old Terry Sims is as close as anyone has ever been to capturing the coveted $5.6 million grand prize.
For nearly three months, Andrew McCutchen has not looked like himself at the plate. He's been physically compromised, mechanically off and statistically average. But Saturday night, he looked like Andrew McCutchen again. The Pirates' star center fielder homered twice, leading the Bucs to a 6-1 win over the Dodgers at PNC Park.
Julio Teheran and Jacob deGrom waged an impressive pitching battle and maintained their status as two of baseball's most unfortunate pitchers in terms of run support. Once they exited on Saturday night at Turner Field, Kelly Johnson damaged his former team with a pinch-hit home run that provided the Mets a 1-0, 11-inning win over the Braves.
