MLB roundup: Red Sox end skid, sink Royals on walk-off slam

In the opener of a four-game series, Pablo Reyes hit a grand slam against Carlos Hernandez with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Boston Red Sox a 6-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals. This was Reyes’ first home run of the season, and he also collected three hits and scored three times in the win. The Red Sox had been struggling, losing four straight games and seven of their last eight.

The grand slam came shortly after Royals manager Matt Quatraro was ejected for arguing a ball-four call. Hernandez, the Royals’ pitcher, now has a 1-7 record this season. Kenley Jansen pitched a scoreless top of the ninth for the Red Sox and earned the win, striking out two batters.

In the game between the Kansas City Royals and the Boston Red Sox, Kansas City starter Cole Ragans pitched 6 2/3 innings, giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits. He also walked one batter and struck out a career-high 11. MJ Melendez, the designated hitter for the Royals, had three hits in the game.

The Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Colorado Rockies 12-1 in the opener of a three-game series. Freddy Peralta, the Brewers’ pitcher, retired the final 20 hitters he faced after allowing a solo home run in the first inning. Peralta had a dominant performance, matching his career high with 13 strikeouts and not issuing any walks.

The Los Angeles Dodgers secured a 13-7 victory over the San Diego Padres, with Mookie Betts hitting a grand slam in the fourth inning to cap off an eight-run rally. The Padres had initially taken a 5-4 lead with five runs in the third inning. Luis Campusano, the Padres’ catcher, had an impressive game with four hits and four RBIs.

The Minnesota Twins defeated the Detroit Tigers 9-3, thanks to three-run homers by Ryan Jeffers and Carlos Correa in the first two innings. Correa had a standout performance, scoring two runs and driving in four. Pablo Lopez, the winning pitcher for the Twins, pitched seven innings, recording eight strikeouts and not allowing any walks.

The Cincinnati Reds earned a 5-2 victory over the Miami Marlins in the opener of a three-game series. Brandon Williamson, the Reds’ pitcher, allowed only one run on three hits in 6 2/3 innings. Christian Encarnacion-Strand and Joey Votto hit home runs for the Reds.

The Pittsburgh Pirates edged out the Atlanta Braves with a 7-6 win. Jared Triolo had a crucial two-run single during a six-run third inning for the Pirates. Ozzie Albies hit a home run for the Braves, but their starting pitcher, Spencer Strider, struggled, giving up six runs in 2 2/3 innings.

The Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Cleveland Guardians 3-1 in the opener of a four-game series. Cavan Biggio hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning to break a scoreless tie. Hyun Jin Ryu, the Blue Jays’ starter, had to leave the game early after being hit by a line drive, but Enyel De Los Santos came in relief and secured the win.

The New York Mets snapped a six-game losing streak with an 11-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Pete Alonso had a remarkable game, hitting two home runs and driving in six runs. Kodai Senga earned the win for the Mets, allowing two runs over six innings.

The Chicago White Sox defeated the New York Yankees 5-1, with Andrew Vaughn hitting a two-run home run and making a game-saving defensive play. Gerrit Cole, the Yankees’ pitcher, gave up four runs and five hits in seven-plus innings.

The San Francisco Giants rallied in the ninth inning to defeat the Los Angeles Angels 8-3. The Angels had a 3-2 lead going into the ninth, but the Giants scored six runs in that inning to secure the win. Mickey Moniak, the Angels’ center fielder, made a spectacular catch to rob a potential game-tying home run.

The Texas Rangers came from behind to beat the Oakland Athletics 5-3. Mitch Garver had three hits and two RBIs for the Rangers, and Travis Jankowski’s fielder’s choice in the eighth inning drove in the go-ahead run. The Rangers have now won seven consecutive games, their best streak since 2018.

In conclusion, these were the highlights of the recent MLB games. Each team had its share of victories and standout performances, showcasing the competitiveness of the league.
