MLB roundup: Yankees pummel Red Sox in season's first meeting

MLB roundup: Yankees pummel Red Sox in season's first meeting

James Paxton struck out 12 and pitched eight dominant innings of two-hit ball to outpitch Chris Sale, and the host New York Yankees rolled to an 8-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night. Paxton (2-2) delivered his best showing as a Yankee by thriving in the first meeting between the rivals since the Red Sox won Games 3 and 4 of the American League Division Series last October.

Clint Frazier, Mike Tauchman and Gleyber Torres homered for the Yankees, who scored their most runs in a home game this season. Frazier hit a solo homer off Sale (0-4) to start the fourth after the Yankees built a 2-0 lead on RBI singles by DJ LeMahieu and Luke Voit in the third. Tauchman had an RBI double off Sale in the fourth and then slugged a three-run homer off Erasmo Ramirez in the sixth. After Tauchman's first career homer, Torres made it 8-0 by opening the seventh with his fourth homer of the season.

Pirates 5, Tigers 3 (10 innings) Starling Marte hit a two-out, two-run homer in the 10th and Pittsburgh topped host Detroit. Marte's homer was his second this season and Jung Ho Kang also hit his second homer, a two-run shot in the fourth.

Pinch hitter Jason Martin led off the 10th with a single. Reliever Shane Greene retired the next two batters before Marte jumped on a slider and launched it over the left-center wall. Greene (0-1) hadn't allowed a run this season before Marte's long ball. Keone Kela (1-0) picked up the win despite giving up a ninth-inning run. Nick Kingham recorded his first save by getting the last three outs.

Phillies 14, Mets 3 Scott Kingery and J.T. Realmuto each had three hits and five RBIs as host Philadelphia built a 10-run lead in the first inning and cruised over New York as Mets starter Steven Matz (1-1) faced the first eight batters without recording an out and was lifted for Drew Gagnon.

Kingery hit a three-run home run and set a career high for RBIs. He entered the night with no RBIs through 17 at-bats this year. Realmuto added a solo homer, and Maikel Franco also had a three-run homer. Phillies starter Nick Pivetta (2-1) tossed five innings and gave up seven hits and three runs. Jerad Eickhoff picked up a rare four-inning save, allowing no runs on three hits.

Diamondbacks 9, Braves 6 Christian Walker had three hits, including the go-ahead homer in the ninth inning, to help visiting Arizona beat Atlanta as Walker was 3-for-4 with two runs and two RBIs.

Walker, playing first base while Jake Lamb is out with a strained left calf, led off the ninth with a long, majestic homer, his fifth. It came against Atlanta reliever A.J. Minter (0-2) and put Arizona ahead to stay. Adam Jones followed by doubling in two insurance runs against Jacob Webb, who was making his major league debut for the Braves. Yoshihisa Hirano (1-1), who worked 1 1/3 scoreless innings, was the winner. Greg Holland got the save, his third.

Cubs 4, Marlins 0 Jose Quintana pitched seven scoreless innings, and Javier Baez blasted an opposite-field, 439-foot home run as Chicago defeated host Miami as Quintana (2-1) allowed six hits and no walks, striking out seven and extending his scoreless streak to 14 innings.

Against Miami, Quintana threw first-pitch strikes to 21 of 27 batters. He retired nine straight hitters from the first to the fourth innings, and he had an 8-6 groundball-to-fly-out ratio. He also picked up 15 swing-and-miss strikes. Baez, who is hitting .314, went 3-for-4, including two singles and his fifth homer of the season. Miami starter Pablo Lopez (1-3) lost his third straight start, allowing five hits, one walk and two runs in five innings. He struck out six.

Blue Jays 6, Twins 5 Teoscar Hernandez broke a tie with a two-out, bases-loaded single in the seventh inning and then combined to throw out the potential game-tying run for the final out of the game as Toronto held on in Minneapolis.

It was the second straight game in which Hernandez had the game-winning hit for the Blue Jays, as he belted a three-run home run in the eighth inning on Monday night to rally Toronto to a 5-3 victory. Aaron Sanchez (2-1) pitched six innings for the win, allowing four runs on four hits and four walks while striking out five. Ken Giles picked up his fifth save despite allowing a run in the ninth.

Rays 4, Orioles 2 Avisail Garcia hit a two-run homer that gave Tampa Bay the lead for good and finished with three RBIs as they defeated visiting Baltimore, winning for the seventh time in eight games while the Orioles lost for the sixth time in eight games.

Garcia's homer came off Baltimore starter Dylan Bundy (0-2) in the fourth inning as Tampa Bay rallied from an early 2-0 deficit. He added an RBI single in the eighth inning. Tampa Bay right-hander Tyler Glasnow (4-0) struggled over the first three innings, giving up two runs, but then settled down and didn't yield another run in his seven-inning stint.

Giants 7, Nationals 3 Evan Longoria, Steven Duggar and Brandon Belt hit homers off Stephen Strasburg as light-hitting San Francisco beat host Washington. Nationals manager Dave Martinez was ejected in the fifth for arguing with home plate umpire Tony Randazzo after several of his players took called third strikes.

The Giants entered the game last in the National League with a team batting average of .199 and they now have 13 homers. Longoria and Duggar homered in the fifth for a 3-1 lead and Belt hit a solo shot in the sixth to make it 4-1. Gerardo Parra had an RBI double in the seventh and some sloppy fielding by the Nationals led to a run-scoring infield single by Joe Panik for a 6-1 advantage in the seventh. The Giants took a 7-3 lead in the eighth on an RBI single by Kevin Pillar off struggling reliever Trevor Rosenthal.

White Sox 5, Royals 1 Yoan Moncada homered twice, and Reynaldo Lopez pitched six effective innings for his first win of the season as host Chicago stopped Kansas City.

Lopez (1-2), who entered the game with a 12.15 ERA, permitted five hits and a run in his 104-pitch stint. He issued two walks and struck out five. Four relievers obtained the final nine outs as Chicago won for the fourth time in five games and clinched a victory in the three-game series that concludes Wednesday. Jorge Lopez (0-2) fanned 10 and walked two over six innings for Kansas City, but he couldn't keep the ball in the yard, allowing three homers among his eight hits. Lopez was touched for four runs.

Rangers 5, Angels 0 Joey Gallo and Asdrubal Cabrera provided the power and right-hander Mike Minor (2-1) threw a three-hit shutout as Texas shut down Los Angeles in Arlington, Texas.

Gallo welcomed Angels reliever Dillon Peters in the sixth inning by crushing his second pitch, a low fastball right in Gallo's sweet spot, 439 feet into the right-field bleachers for a five-run cushion. In the fourth, Gallo helped to spoil the first start for Angels right-hander Jaime Barria (1-1), who was promoted to the big leagues Monday. Barria got two quick outs to start the inning and had Gallo down in the count, 1-2. But Gallo held off on three straight sliders to work a walk and set up Cabrera. He sent a deep fly to right that Kole Calhoun nearly snagged at the wall, but the ball bounced off his glove and out for Cabrera's sixth home run and a 3-0 Texas lead.

Rockies 8, Padres 2 Nolan Arenado homered in a third straight game, and Jon Gray continued his mastery of San Diego as visiting Colorado completed a two-game series sweep.

Arenado's two-run homer in the first, which followed a single by Garrett Hampson, produced the first runs scored by the Rockies in the first inning this season. Colorado would score five runs in the first three innings against Padres left-handed rookie Nick Margevicius (1-2). Meanwhile, Gray (1-3) didn't allow a hit until Wil Myers led off the bottom of the fifth with his second homer in as many nights and his fifth of the season.

Brewers 8, Cardinals 4 Brandon Woodruff threw 5 2/3 innings and doubled home two runs for Milwaukee against visiting St. Louis as Woodruff (2-1) allowed two runs and seven hits while striking out six and walking two.

He also improved to 5-for-7 at the plate this season, and the Milwaukee pitching staff is 12-for-31 overall. Christian Yelich also continued to make big contributions for Milwaukee, especially against the Cardinals. Yelich went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer, improving to 11-for-21 in six games against St. Louis this season with eight home runs and 18 RBIs.
