UNDATED (AP) — The New York Yankees still lead the AL East by a half-game over the Boston Red Sox following victories by both teams. Aaron Judge banged out his 34th home run and Chase Headley hit a go-ahead, two-run double as the Yankees won for the seventh time in eight games, 7-3 against Detroit. Mookie Betts had three RBIs and Doug Fister carried a shutout into the eighth inning of the Red Sox's 6-2 win over Cleveland.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Kansas City Royals continue to trail the AL Central by two games to the Indians. Craig Gentry hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth to send the Orioles to their third straight win, 2-1 over the Royals. Eric Hosmer opened the scoring with an RBI double in the top of the first, but the Royals lost for only the second time in 11 games.
HOUSTON (AP) — Jake Marisnick was 3-for-5 with a pair of homers, five RBIs and four runs scored to lead the Astros' 17-hit attack in a 14-7 triumph over Tampa Bay. Derek Fisher added a solo shot and two RBIs in support of Charlie Morton, who was reached for just two runs and two hits over six innings. The Astros ended a two-game skid and kept their 16-game lead over Seattle.
MIAMI (AP) — Gio Gonzalez came within three outs of a no-hitter and the Washington Nationals stretched their lead in the NL East to 14 games by blanking the Marlins, 1-0 in Miami. Gonzalez was lifted after Dee Gordon led off the top of the ninth with a single to ruin the no-hit bid. Bryce Harper's RBI single in the sixth was enough offense for Gonzalez to improve to 9-5.
UNDATED (AP) — Pitchers Sonny Gray and Yu Darvish were moved just before yesterday's non-waiver trade deadline. Gray was sent to the New York Yankees for shortstop-outfielder Jorge Mateo, pitcher James Kaprielian and outfielder Dustin Fowler from the Yanks. Darvish went from the Texas Rangers to the Los Angeles Dodgers, who gave up three prospects for the four-time All-Star.
