Giants, Mets claim MLB wins

Updated: 

The San Francisco Giants had an extra-inning win in MLB, while the New York Mets split their Yankees series.

Denard Span blasted a 10th-inning homer as the Giants edged the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2.

The Mets and Yankees split their four-game series as the former claimed a 4-1 win.

The Oakland Athletics needed 10 innings to beat the Los Angeles Angels 8-6 and the Texas Rangers edged the Baltimore Orioles 5-3.

A three-run homer from Brad Miller saw the Tampa Bay Rays past the Kansas City Royals 3-2 and the Cleveland Indians thrashed the Minnesota Twins 9-2.

The Cincinnati Reds shut out the St Louis Cardinals 7-0 and the Chicago White Sox overcame the Detroit Tigers 6-3.

The Boston Red Sox needed 11 innings to get past the Seattle Mariners 3-2.

The Atlanta Braves claimed a 5-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Houston Astros 4-1 and the Los Angeles Dodgers were 4-2 victors against the Colorado Rockies.


FINNEGAN RESTRICTS CARDINALS

Brandon Finnegan limited the Cardinals to two hits over six innings. Finnegan did not issue a walk and struck out four in the outing. He will look for a repeat performance next time up against the same team, this time in St Louis. 


CRISP DENIES CHOI

Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp made an amazing catch to rob the Angels' Choi Ji-man of what would have been his third home run of the game. 

SEAGER HOMERS AGAIN

Dodgers rookie Corey Seager hit his 19th home run with a fifth-inning blast against the Rockies, tying the record for most homers from a Dodgers shortstop. Seager, who is now batting with an average of .306, is a favourite to win National League Rookie of the Year. 


RANGERS TAKE ON ASTROS

The battle for Texas resumes as a pair of struggling southpaws take the mound in Houston. Dallas Keuchel (6-11, 4.86 ERA) has posted a 7.91 ERA against the Rangers this season while Texas starter Martin Perez (7-7, 4.22 ERA) has a 5.95 ERA in 11 road starts in 2016.
