 Nick Martin - World Baseball Network  |    Jul 1st, 2024 12:07pm EDT

Wyatt Langford hit for the cycle, the first this season, Judge continues his historic HR pace, and the Astros are red hot—one thing from each MLB game.  

Pirates 4 Braves 2  

  • Home runs by Oniel Cruz and Rowdy Tellez in the fifth provided Pittsburgh with all its runs and led the Pirates to the win. Bailey Falter allowed one run on two hits through five innings. 

Red Sox 4 Padres 1 

  • The Red Sox ended San Diego’s five-game win streak thanks to homers from Jarren Duran and Rafael Devers. Jackson Merrill continued his successful rookie season with three hits. 

Phillies 7 Marlins 6 

  • The Phillies closed the Marlins four run lead with a bases-clearing double by Nick Castellanos in the sixth. Trea Turner brought in the final two runs with a two-RBI single in the seventh to push the Phillies over the edge.

Yankees 8 Blue Jays 1 

  • Gerrit Cole pitched five innings and allowed one run while striking out six to pick up his first win of the season. Aaron Judge went deep in the first for his MLB-leading 31st home run of the year. Yankees pitching only surrendered four hits.

Astros 10 Mets 5 

  • The Astros beat the Mets to win nine of their last ten. Houston scored five in the top of the eleventh to pull away. Yanier Diaz provided three of the 15 Astros hits.

Rays 5 Nationals 0 

  • Taj Bradley struck out 11, allowing zero earned on three hits through five and two-thirds innings. Arozarena, Caballero, and Paredes went deep for Tampa to help them past the Nationals. Rays pitching allowed three hits.

Rockies 5 White Sox 4 

  • A back and forth game that stretched until the 14th inning. Both teams scored runs in the 10th and 13th innings to maintain the tie. Michael Toglia hit a sac fly in the top of the 14th to drive in the winning run for Colorado. Garrett Crochet struck out 11 through seven innings.

Royals 6 Guardians 2 

  • Seth Lugo pitched six innings, striking out ten and allowing zero runs. He picked up win number 11, which is the best in the MLB. The Royals jumped out to a six-run lead thanks to a home run by Salvador Perez. 

Brewers 7 Cubs 1 

  • Milwaukee scored all seven in the fourth inning, finished by a Brice Turang grand slam. Freddy Peralta went seven innings and struck out eight while allowing one run. 

Cardinals 2 Reds 0 

  • Cardinals pitching allowed two hits and blanked the Reds to split the four-game Masyn Winn and Alec Burleson drove in the two runs for St. Louis. 

Giants 10 Dodgers 4 

  • The Giants tallied ten doubles against the Dodgers, the team’s most since 1912. Every San Francisco starter contributed a hit, including a three-run bomb from Matt Chapman. Rookie Spencer Bivens went five innings strong, allowing one run. The Giants win the three-game series against LA.

Tigers 7 Angles 6 

  • The Tigers used a pair of three-run innings to outlast the Angels. Five runs in the ninth from the Angels provided a scare, but Tyler Holton shut the door. Justyn-Henry Malloy hit an inside-the-park home run. 

Diamondbacks 5 A’s 1 

  • The Diamondbacks scored three in the seventh to break the tie with the A’s and win. Christian Walker provided three hits and drove in two runs to lead the charge for Arizona. Brandon Pfaadt struck out eight in six innings of work. 

Twins 5 Mariners 3  

  • Trevor Larnach hit a two-run homer in the eighth to give the Twins the lead, proving to be the winning run. Minnesota has gone deep in nineteen straight games. Joe Ryan struck out ten Seattle hitters in five and two-thirds. 

Rangers 11 Orioles 2 

  • Sunday Night Baseball ended the day with fireworks from the Rangers. Rookie Wyatt Langford hit for the cycle, the first this season in the MLB. Andrew Heaney struck out ten in seven innings.
