Patrick Corbin took a no hitter into the 8th and finished with a complete game 1 hit shutout, striking out 8 Giants as the Diamondbacks won the 1-0 thriller.

Lance McCullers Jr. allowed an early solo homer, a walk and nothing else as he held the Mariners to 1 hit over 7 innings, striking out 11 in the Astros 4-1 victory.

J. T. Realmuto homered and singled, driving in 4, as the Marlins humiliated the Yankees in the Bronx, 9-1.

Mookie Betts homered three times, including a lead off shot, and walked twice to lead the Red Sox to a 10-1 thrashing of the Angels.

Danny Duffy struck out 8 in 6 shutout innings. But the Royals bullpen melted down and the Blue Jays would tie the game in the 7th and win 5-4 in the 10th to sweep the double header.

Javier Baez got 3 hits, including a homer, but the Cubs lost to the suddenly hot Cardinals, 5-3.

Yoan Moncada homered, doubled and walked, driving in 2, but the White Sox were thumped in Oakland, 10-2.
