MLB roundup: Ohtani homers in Angels' win

Tommy La Stella went 3-for-5, hitting what proved to be the game-winning home run in the sixth inning, and Shohei Ohtani hit his first home run of the season to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday night in Minneapolis. La Stella broke a 4-4 tie with his team-leading 10th homer of the season into the left field bleachers, becoming the first Angels' left-handed batter since Mo Vaughn in 1999 to hit 10 home runs in his first 36 games of a season.

Mike Trout and Albert Pujols both went 3-for-5, Ohtani went 2-for-3 with two walks and two RBIs, and Kole Calhoun added two hits for Los Angeles, which won for the fifth time in seven games. Tyler Skaggs (4-3) allowed four runs on five hits over five innings. Hansel Robles pitched a perfect ninth to notch his fourth save. Jorge Polanco and Marwin Gonzalez each homered for Minnesota, which has lost back-to-back games for just the third time this season.

Astros 8, Tigers 1 Robinson Chirinos, Jake Marisnick and Alex Bregman hit two-run homers, and Houston extended its winning streak to six with an victory over at Detroit.

Chirinos and Marisnick reached base three times and scored two runs apiece. George Springer, who had five hits against the Texas Rangers on Sunday, supplied two hits and an RBI on Monday, and Aledmys Diaz added a solo homer among two hits. Brad Peacock (4-2) allowed one run on three hits in five innings to pick up the win. He walked four and struck out three.

Phillies 7, Brewers 4 Cesar Hernandez homered and had two hits, two RBIs and three runs to lift host Philadelphia past Milwaukee. The game was delayed at the start by rain for 52 minutes.

Andrew McCutchen, J.T. Realmuto and Maikel Franco each added two hits for the Phillies, who won their third in a row. Adam Morgan (2-1) picked up the win with 1 1/3 innings of shutout relief. Pat Neshek earned his second save with a scoreless ninth. Lorenzo Cain led the Brewers with his first career five-hit contest, but he grounded out in his sixth at-bat to end the game. Milwaukee's Mike Moustakas added a solo homer, his 10th of the season.

White Sox 5, Indians 2 Yoan Moncada drilled a pair of solo home runs against Shane Bieber, who gave up four in all, and Reynaldo Lopez pitched 7 2/3 strong innings to lift host Chicago over Cleveland. Jose Abreu and Welington Castillo also went deep for the White Sox.

The power surge proved to be plenty of support for Lopez (3-4), who scattered two runs -- one earned -- and two hits in his longest outing of the season, walking two and striking out six. Aaron Bummer and Alex Colome contributed 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief to complete Chicago's combined two-hitter and help the White Sox to their third straight win. Colome pitched the ninth inning to earn his eighth save.

Orioles at Yankees, ppd. The game between New York and Baltimore was postponed after a rain delay, with an apparent botched removal of the tarp by the grounds crew leaving Yankee Stadium with unplayable field conditions.

The game will be made up as the first game of a single-game admission doubleheader Wednesday beginning at 3:05 p.m. ET. --Field Level Media
