Freddy Galvis singled twice and homered, driving in 4, as the Reds doubled up the Marlins, 6-3.

Wade LeBlanc pitched 2 perfect innings out of the bullpen, striking out 2 Yankees, to give the Mariners a chance to come back. They did not and lost the 4-3 final.

Bubba Starling went 3 for 4, scoring twice, but the Royals were clobbered by Oakland, 19-4.
