Detroit routs Cleveland behind Ramirez
DETROIT — Jose Ramirez tied a major league record with five extra-base hits, including a pair of home runs that deflected off Detroit outfielders, and the Cleveland Indians routed the Tigers, 11-1, Sunday for their 11th straight victory.
Ramirez had three doubles in becoming the 13th player with five extra-base hits in a game. Kris Bryant of the Cubs did it last year, and the previous Cleveland player to accomplish the feat was Kelly Shoppach in 2008.
ASTROS 8, METS 6
HOUSTON — Cameron Maybin hit a three-run homer, George Springer connected for the second straight day and the Astros swept their weekend series with the Mets.
Josh Reddick added two hits and three RBIs for the Astros, who won both games of a doubleheader on Saturday in their first home games since flooding from Hurricane Harvey devastated the city. Carlos Correa hit an RBI single in his return from the disabled list.
DIAMONDBACKS 5, ROCKIES 1
DENVER — Ketel Marte and Brandon Drury homered in Arizona’s three-run sixth, and the Diamondbacks extended their winning streak to 10 games.
It’s the Diamondbacks’ longest winning streak since they captured a franchise-best 12 straight in 2003. Zack Godley (7-7) pitched six effective innings to help Arizona sweep a three-game series from Colorado.
BRAVES 5, CUBS 1
CHICAGO — Max Fried combined with four relievers on a five-hitter in his first major league start, and the Braves ended the Cubs’ six-game winning streak.
Recalled from Triple-A on Friday, Fried (1-0) gave up a run and four hits in five innings.
BREWERS 7, NATIONALS 2
MILWAUKEE — Domingo Santana homered twice, and Milwaukee pulled within a half-game of Colorado for the NL’s second wild card.
Brent Suter, who had not pitched for Milwaukee since Aug. 12 because of left rotator cuff inflammation, allowed two hits in three scoreless innings and left after 43 pitches.
RANGERS 7, ANGELS 6
ARLINGTON, Texas — Elvis Andrus hit two of Texas’ four homers and the Rangers took the rubber game of a series with wild-card implications for both teams.
The Rangers went ahead to stay when Robinson Chirinos and Delino DeShields hit back-to-back homers in the fourth inning. No. 9 hitter Chirinos’ two-run homer tied it at 4 before DeShields went deep.
ORIOLES 5, BLUE JAYS 4, 12 INNINGS
BALTIMORE — Welington Castillo homered twice for Baltimore, including a game-tying shot in the ninth inning, and Mark Trumbo won it in the 12th with an RBI single.
The Orioles never led until Trumbo drove in Jonathan Schoop with a liner into the left-field corner off Danny Barnes (2-6). Prior to Trumbo’s hit, Baltimore was 0 for 16 with runners in scoring position.
PADRES 6, DODGERS 4
SAN DIEGO — Erick Aybar hit a two-run homer and Jose Pirela also went deep to help the Padres hand the major league-leading Dodgers their eighth loss in nine games.
San Diego won three straight against Los Angeles for the first time since June 2013.
PHILLIES 3, MARLINS 1, 12 INNINGS
MIAMI — Nick Williams hit a two-run single with two out in the 12th inning, and five Phillies pitchers held the Marlins to four hits.
Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton went 0 for 3 with two walks to finish the week 2 for 25 (.080). Both hits were homers, giving him 52 for the season.
WHITE SOX 6, RAYS 2
CHICAGO — White sox rookie Lucas Giolito struck out 10 in seven sharp innings, and Jose Abreu homered in his return to the lineup.
A key piece of Chicago’s rebuilding project, the 23-year-old Giolito (2-1) allowed a run and three hits in his third start since being called up from the minor leagues last month.
ROYALS 5, TWINS 4
MINNEAPOLIS — Kansas City’s Lorenzo Cain hit a go-ahead, two-run triple in the seventh inning after a checked-swing call went his way on a close two-strike pitch.
The Royals trailed 4-3 and had two on with two outs when Cain fouled off his first four pitches from Alan Busenitz (1-1). Cain took a fastball up, and then checked his swing on an outside curveball in the dirt.
CARDINALS 7, GIANTS 3
SAN FRANCISCO — Harrison Bader hit a tiebreaking homer in the decisive sixth inning after Madison Bumgarner homered in the bottom of the fifth, and the Cardinals gained ground in the wild-card race.
PIRATES 3, REDS 1
PITTSBURGH — Trevor Williams pitched seven scoreless innings and Jordy Mercer hit his career-best 13th homer, leading Pittsburgh to the win.
MARINERS 10, ATHLETICS 2
