Angels beat Astros in the 13th
• Los Angeles 2, Houston 1 (13): Taylor Featherston poked an RBI single over first base with two outs in the 13th to give the host Angels the victory. Surprise starter Andrew Heaney pitched well in his Angels debut. He was recalled from Class AAA Salt Lake after righthander Matt Shoemaker was pushed back two days in the rotation to get some extra work in.
• Boston 5, Baltimore 1: The host Red Sox ended a six-game losing streak to the Orioles, but left fielder Hanley Ramirez (bruised left hand) and second baseman Dustin Pedroia (hamstring tightness) both left the game with injuries. “We’re still in the process of gathering all the information,” manager John Farrell said afterward.
• Cleveland 8, Detroit 2: The Indians won their first home game in six tries this season against the Tigers. Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera, batting .619 against Cleveland this season, was given a day off.
• Oakland 8, Texas 2: Brett Lawrie hit a grand slam and Josh Phegley homered for the second night in a row as the visiting Athletics won their fourth straight.
Mets drop their seventh in a row
• Milwaukee 4, New York 1: Jimmy Nelson allowed two hits in eight innings as the host Brewers extended the Mets’ losing streak to a season-high seven games. New York (36-37) slipped below .500 for the first time since a 2-3 record on April 11.
• Los Angeles 5, Chicago 2: Justin Turner and Adrian Gonzalez homered as the visiting Dodgers ended the Cubs’ four-game winning streak.
• Washington 2, Atlanta 1 (11): Ian Desmond hit a sacrifice fly with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 11th to lift the Nationals to their fifth straight victory. Felipe Rivero earned his first major league victory with an inning of scoreless relief in the 11th. Atlanta forced extra innings when it tied the score 1-1 in the top of ninth against Washington closer Drew Storen.
• Cincinnati 5, Pittsburgh 2: Marlon Byrd hit a two-run homer during Cincinnati’s four-run first inning, and the visiting Reds continued their mastery of Gerrit Cole. The Reds have won — and scored at least three runs — in each of the three games this season it has faced Cole (11-3). The Pirates are 11-1 when Cole starts against any other team.
• St. Louis 6, Miami 1: Jason Heyward homered for the third consecutive game and Kolten Wong added a two-run shot for the visiting Cardinals. Giancarlo Stanton had three hits, including hit his majo league-leading 27th home run for the Marlins.
• N.Y. Yankees 10, Philadelphia 2: Ivan Nova stifled the visiting Phillies on three hits over 6⅔ scoreless innings in his first major league appearance in 14 months. Nova had Tommy John surgery in April 2014.
The Giants placed leadoff hitter Nori Aoki on the 15-day disabled list because of a small fracture in his right leg. Aoki will be in a cast for two weeks.
