Another day in the MLB filled with excitement. Here’s everything you missed from yesterday in the MLB.  

Guardians 3 Orioles 2  

  • Jose Ramirez hit a tie-breaking home run in the sixth inning, which led to a Guardians win. Tanner Bibee went six innings, allowing one run on five hits and striking out seven. 

Phillies 8 Tigers 1  

  • The Phillies got homers from Bryce Harper and Alec Bohm to propel them over Detroit. Aaron Nola struck out six and allowed one earned in seven innings. Phillies turn a triple play.

Rays 4 Mariners 3 

  • Two clutch hits from Diaz and Rortvedt gave the Rays the lead in the eighth. Rays pitching held the Mariners to just three hits. Rays starter Tahj Bradley struck out eight.

Red Sox 7 Blue Jays 6  

  • Boston won with a walk-off single from Jarret Duran. The Sox rallied from four down in the eighth to tie it before winning it in the ninth. Kenley Jansen picked up the win. 

Reds 11 Pirates 5  

  • Elly De La Cruz drove in three, including a long ball, to help the Reds secure the win. Carson Spiers pitched six innings, allowing three runs and striking out five.

Cardinals 4 Braves 3  

  • The Cardinals scored all four in the third. They held off a Braves rally in the ninth. Ryan Helsley allowed two runs in the ninth but picked up league-leading save number 27 on the year. 

Dodgers 3 White Sox 0  

  • The Dodgers scored two in the seventh to put themselves on top of Chicago. Shohei drives in an insurance run on a sac fly in the ninth.

Royals 4 Marlins 1 

  • Cole Ragans struck out eleven hitters in six innings for Kansas City. Home runs by Pasquantino, Perez, and Renfroe put the Royals on top.

Brewers 6 Rangers 3   

  • A Rhys Hoskins grand slam sparked a five-run sixth inning that would give the Brewers the lead. Freddy Peralta put together six strikeouts and allowed two runs. 

Angels 5 Athletics 1  

  • A first-inning two-run homer from Taylor Ward proved all the Angels would need to beat the A’s. Angels pitching allowed six hits but kept the A’s offense at bay after the second inning.

Padres 7 Nationals 6 

  • An exciting tenth ends with the Padres on top. Teams combined for seven runs in the tenth. Jurickson Profar hit a two-RBI double to walk it off for San Diego. Padres potentially lose Tatis until after All-Star break.

Giants 5 Cubs 4 

  • The Giants win on a bases-loaded walk after closing the Cubs four-run lead. San Francisco scored three in the ninth, which was capped off by a Wilmer Flores walk. Relief Pitcher Spencer Howard threw four and two-thirds without a run and struck out eight.
