Joe Mauer homered, scored from first on a hit, drove in another run and finished 3-4 with 4 RBI as the Twins won 6-1 over Baltimore.

Jon Lester dominated the A’s over 8 shutout innings. He let up just 1 hit, walking 2 and striking out a career high 15 as Boston won 6-3.

Dee Gordon went 5-6 in the leadoff spot. He also stole three bases, scored twice and drove in a pair as the Dodgers would top the Marlins in Miami, 9-7 in 11 innings.

Johnny Cueto topped the Brewers by throwing 8 innings of 3 hit ball. He let up a pair of solo homers and just a hit and a walk other than that. He struck out 10 in the process, earning the 6-2 victory in Cincinnati.

Jonathan Villar got on base three times, tripled, homered and drove in 3 for the Astros. They would fall to Seattle in a 9-8 slugfest.

Julio Teheran was terrific over 7 innings of 4 hit, no walk, 7 strikeout ball. But he was the hard luck loser as the Braves fell 3-1 to the Giants.

Daniel Murphy was a homer shy of the cycle, finishing 4-6 with three runs scored. It was a hard luck loss for the Mets who dropped the Coors slug fest to the Rockies 11-10 in the bottom of the 9th.
