UNDATED (AP) — Mike Fiers (FY'-urz) tossed the fifth no-hitter of the season in the Houston Astros' 3-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fiers struck out 10 and walked three, retiring the final 21 batters in his first no-hitter. He struck out Justin Turner for the final out in the Astros' first complete-game no-hitter since Darryl Kile in 1993.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Madison Bumgarner belted his fifth homer of the season and pitched into the seventh inning as San Francisco downed Pittsburgh 6-4 to pull within 1 ½ games of the NL West-leading Dodgers. Marlon Byrd was a major contributor in his first game since being acquired by the Giants from Cincinnati on Thursday, smacking a two-run homer in his first at-bat and providing three of San Francisco's 15 hits. The outcome keeps the Pirates 4 ½ games behind the NL Central-leading Cardinals.

UNDATED (AP) — Just a half-game separates the first-place Yankees and second-place Blue Jays in the AL East. Cleveland is 4-1 versus the Yankees this year after Carlos Carrasco struck out 11 while yielding just a run and five hits over 6 2/3 innings to pitch the Indians to a 7-3 victory in the Bronx. David Price fanned nine while allowing two runs in eight innings of the Blue Jays' 9-2 romp over the Angels.

UNDATED (AP) — Yoenis Cespedes (yoh-EH'-nehs SEHS'-peh-dehs) was 5-for-6 with three homers, seven RBIs and five runs scored as the New York Mets beat the Rockies 14-9 in Colorado. The Mets blew an 8-4 lead before Cespedes launched his final homer of the night, a two-run blast in the sixth. Travis d'Arnaud (dahr-NOH') and Michael Comforto also homered for the Mets, who top the NL East by five games after Washington lost 10-3 to Milwaukee.

BOSTON (AP) — Kansas City absorbed a 7-2 beating in Boston as Johnny Cueto (KWAY'-toh) had his worst outing since joining the Royals. Blake Swihart was 4-for-4 with two RBIs and three runs scored for the Red Sox, who reached Cueto for six earned runs and 13 hits in six innings. The Royals' lead in the AL Central is 12 ½ games over the Twins, who scored three times in the eighth to pull out a 4-3 victory in Baltimore.
