Jacoby Ellsbury went 3-4 with a pair of homers in the Yankees 5-2 loss in Detroit.

Ricky Nolasco pitched 7 shutout innings, allowing 3 hits and 1 walk, keeping first place Kansas City off of the board. But the bullpen would let him down and the Twins lost 2-1 in the bottom of the 9th inning.

Alex Wood pitched 7 strong innings, allowing 5 hits and 3 runs but took the 3-2 loss for the Braves against the Mets.

Ender Inciarte got a pair of hits, driving in 3 runs and stole a base but his Diamondbacks would fall to the Dodgers, 9-5.
