White Sox upstage Tigers, Gonzalez leads Dodgers


The Chicago White Sox completed two walk-off wins in the one day after defeating the Detroit Tigers in Sunday's MLB action.

The White Sox finished Saturday's delayed game against the Tigers with a walk-off, then hit another game winner in the afternoon.

Outfielder Adam Eaton completed the first walk-off with an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the struggling White Sox a 4-3 win. Closer David Robertson was credited with the win. 

Hours later, Melky Cabrera singled in the bottom of the inning to score, guess who, Eaton, to win the game 5-4. Robertson, despite giving up three home runs, was once again credited with the win.

Adrian Gonzalez hit a grand slam as the Los Angeles Dodgers built an eight-run lead, before they secured a 9-6 win over the St Louis Cardinals.

A strong start helped the Colorado Rockies to a 7-2 victory against the Atlanta Braves, the Oakland Athletics edged the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2, the Texas Rangers sealed a 2-1 win over the Kansas City Royals and the Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4. 

The Houston Astros crushed the Los Angeles Angels 13-3, the Chicago Cubs produced a fight back to defeat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-5, the San Diego Padres were too good for the Washington Nations 10-6, while the Cleveland Indians went down to the Baltimore Orioles 5-3. 

The New York Mets shut out the Miami Marlins 3-0, the Toronto Blue Jays did the same to the Seattle Mariners in a 2-0 win, the Arizona Diamondbacks edged the Cincinnati Reds in an 9-8 thriller, and the Boston Red Sox got the better of the Minnesota Twins 8-7. 



Diamondbacks right fielder Yasmany Tomas displayed some power in Sunday's win against the Reds when he blasted two solo home runs while collecting three hits and scoring three runs. Tomas is now batting .259 on the season.


Blue Jays slugger Edwin Encarnacion hit his 195th home run since 2011 on Sunday against the Mariners, which is the most of any player during that time. Nelson Cruz has 189, and Chris Davis with 186 are the next highest. 


On Monday, Boston's recently acquired National League All-Star, Drew Pomeranz (8-7, 2.83 ERA), will take the mound against Justin Verlander (9-6, 3.74 ERA), who has been dominant in his last four starts for the Tigers. The Red Sox continue to lead the majors in scoring.
