Tigers rally late against White Sox

• DETROIT 5, CHICAGO 4: J.D. Martinez hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning, and Joakim Soria worked out of a jam in the ninth to lift the host Tigers over the White Sox on Friday.

• BALTIMORE 4, CLEVELAND 3: Chris Davis singled in the tiebreaking run in the eighth inning, J.J. Hardy homered and had two RBI and the host Orioles beat the Indians, who wasted a 10-strikeout performance by Corey Kluber.

• TORONTO 12, TEXAS 2: Edwin Encarnacion hit his seventh career grand slam and a solo homer as the host Blue Jays handed the slumping Rangers their season-high sixth consecutive loss. The Blue Jays improved to 17-7 in June.

Scherzer not quite perfect again

• WASHINGTON 5, PHILADELPHIA 2: Max Scherzer took a perfect game into the sixth inning in his bid to become the second pitcher in major league history to throw two consecutive no-hitters and the Nationals beat the host Phillies. On a day Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg resigned, Scherzer (9-5) stole the show, retiring the first 16 batters before Freddy Galvis doubled on a 1-1 pitch to the right-field wall. The Nationals righthander gave up two runs and five hits in eight innings — one of the runs coming on a rare home run from Ben Revere.

• NEW YORK 2, CINCINNATI 1: Noah Syndergaard pitched eight sharp innings and the light-hitting Mets got the help they needed when Johnny Cueto suddenly lost the strike zone for the visiting Reds. The Mets returned home from a 1-7 road trip in which they totaled 11 runs, and won despite getting only two hits.

• COLORADO 8, SAN FRANCISCO 6: Nolen Arenado homered twice and drove in four runs, Carlos Gonzalez went 5-for-5 and the Rockies held off the host Giants.

• ST. LOUIS 3, CHICAGO 2 (10): Peter Bourjos scored the winning run from third on a throwing error by Mike Baxter in the 10th inning as the host Cardinals defeated the Cubs.

• SAN DIEGO 4, ARIZONA 2: Tyson Ross pitched six strong innings as the host Padres beat the Diamondbacks.
