Victor Martinez reached base 4 times, drove in a pair including a 10th inning home run that put the Tigers ahead of the Dodgers for good, 7-6.

Billy Hamilton was magnificent in the Reds 4-0 victory over the Cardinals. He got three hits, including a triple, walked, stole a pair and scored twice. One of the runs was on a sacrifice fly hit just barely beyond the infield for the play of the season so far.

Garrett Richards threw 7 innings of 1 hit shutout ball and got the 2-0 win for the Angels in Seattle.

Mike Leake pitched 8 shutout innings, letting up just 4 hits and 1 walk, getting the 4-0 win for the Reds against St. Louis.
