Ohtani Gets a New Career-High: One Thing From Every MLB Game

 Nick Martin - World Baseball Network  |    Jun 26th, 2024 12:42pm EDT

Another action-packed day around the MLB last night saw history being made, comebacks, and pitcher duels.

Guardians 10 Orioles 8 

  • The Guardians have now won seven straight after a close game with Baltimore. Jose Ramirez hit a three-run homer to keep the Guardians in it before two insurance runs in the eighth put the O’s away. Guardians now have the best win percentage in the MLB.

Tigers 4 Phillies 1 

  • Cy Young front runner Tarik Skubal shut down the red-hot Phillies with seven scoreless innings, allowing just three hits and dishing seven strikeouts. Detroit scored all four runs in the fifth inning and handed Ranger Suarez his second loss of the year.

Rays 11 Mariners 3 

  • The Rays have gotten hot, winning seven of their last nine. Homers from Diaz, Paredes, and Rortvedt helped the Rays win.

Mets 9 Yankees 7 

  • The Mets got to last year’s Cy Young winner, Gerrit Cole, in his second start of the season. They collected six runs in seven hits against the Yankees ace. The teams combined for six home runs including two from Mark Vientos.

Blue Jays 9 Red Sox 4 

  • Vladimir Guerrero drives in four runs as the Blue Jays end their seven-game Kevin Gausman allowed three runs in six innings pitched. 

Pirates 9 Reds 5  

  • The Pirates use a pair of three-run innings to outlast the Reds. Bryan Reynolds continues his hot stretch with a home run.

Astros 5 Rockies 2 

  • Hunter Brown dealt six innings of scoreless ball and struck out seven Colorado hitters. Five runs from the Astros in the first inning would be all Houston needed to win. 

Dodgers 4 White Sox 3 

  • Shohei hits home run number twenty-four on the year to lead the game off. A single from Shohei in the fourth that scored one would put the Dodgers on top and secured a career high nine straight games with an RBI for Ohtani.

Marlins 2 Royals 1  

  • A two-run seventh inning by the Marlins put Miami on top of the Royals. Dee Gordon and Jazz Chisholm came up with the game-winning RBIs.

Brewers 3 Rangers 1  

  • Brewers pitching held the Rangers to just five hits and kept them off the board after the first inning. A home run by Joseph Ortiz in the fifth would be Milwaukee’s game-winning run.

Angels 7 A’s 5 

  • Five runs from the Angels in the fifth gave LA’s offense the jolt it needed. Taylor Ward and Mickey Moniak both homered for the Halos. 

Diamondbacks 5 Twins 4 

  • Ketel Marte went two for four with three RBIs, including the game-winning single in the seventh. The Twins hit two home runs but fell short.

Padres 9 Nationals 7 

  • Jurickson Profar led the way for San Diego, hitting a sixth-inning grand slam. The Nats made a late push, but Robert Suarez shut the door for save number twenty. 

Giants 5 Cubs 1  

  • San Francisco pitching held the Cubs to one run on four hits to pick up the win. Matt Chapman drove in two runs to help lead to the win.
