Indians extend winning run, Johnson homers


The Cleveland Indians continued their good form in MLB, while Kelly Johnson came back to haunt the Atlanta Braves.

Carlos Carrasco pitched a complete-game shutout as the Indians made it eight straight, beating the Detroit Tigers 6-0.

Johnson delivered a pinch-hit homer in the 11th as the New York Mets overcame his former team, the Atlanta Braves, 1-0.

Andrew McCutchen hit two homers as the Pittsburgh Pirates recorded a 6-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros brushed past the Kansas City Royals 13-5.

The Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 11-6 and the Chicago White Sox hit seven homers but lost 10-8 to the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Baltimore Orioles did the double over the Tampa Bay Rays with 5-0 and 8-6 wins, while the New York Yankees beat the Minnesota Twins 2-1.

The Seattle Mariners had a 5-4 win over the St Louis Cardinals and the Oakland Athletics beat the Los Angeles Angels 7-3.

The Milwaukee Brewers battled past the Washington Nationals 6-5, the San Diego Padres shut out the Cincinnati Reds 3-0 and the Miami Marlins were 9-6 winners against the Chicago Cubs.

The Texas Rangers thrashed the Boston Red Sox 10-3 and the Philadelphia Phillies edged past the San Francisco Giants 3-2.



Jose Altuve helped keep the Astros rolling by collecting four hits, three runs, a home run and three RBIs. Altuve is the clear favourite so far to win the MVP this season. He is now hitting .348 with 13 home runs and 44 RBIs to go along with 18 stolen bases.


We are pretty sure most people cannot even hit Aroldis Chapman in slow motion as he secured his 15th save for the Yankees.


The White Sox tied an MLB record for most home runs in a loss with seven against the Blue Jays. The other teams to accomplish the feat were the 1995 and 2004 Detroit Tigers. The White Sox also went back-to-back-to-back for the first time since 2008.


Chicago, once on a record-setting pace, have now lost five of their past six games. Jason Hammel (7-3, 2.55 ERA) will face off against Marlins ace Jose Fernandez (9-3, 2.63 ERA) to try to right the ship on Sunday.
