Stephen Piscotty reached base 5 times, including a 3 run game tying homer and a 2 run double, to lead the A’s past the struggling defending champion Red Sox, 7-3.

Stephen Strasburg pitched into the 7th, throwing 6 2/3 shutout 3 hit innings while striking out 9 as the Nationals blanked the Mets, 4-0.

Earning 1/2 WOBs:

Tucker Barnhart singled and doubled but the Reds were blanked by the Pirates, 2-0.

Tyler Mahle gave the Reds 6 shutout innings, giving up 5 hits and striking out 5 Pirates. But he did not factor in the decision as Cincinnati dropped the 2-0 final.

Aaron Sanchez allowed just 5 hits, 2 walks and 2 runs over 6 strong innings, striking out 5 Indians. But he took the hard luck 4-1 loss for the Blue Jays.

Mike Trout singled, homered, walked and threw a runner out at home. The Angels, however, were clobbered by the Rangers, 11-4.
