BOSTON — Gold Glove center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. made two key catches and the Boston Red Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles, giving the World Series champions their first two-game winning streak of the season.

Baltimore’s Chris Davis lined out as a pinch-hitter to end the game, extending his record hitless streak for a position player to 0 for 54.

ARLINGTON, Texas — Khris Davis hit his major league-best 10th homer, his fifth in three games being a tiebreaking solo shot in the eighth inning, as Oakland rallied from a five-run deficit to beat Texas.

Ramon Laureano hit a game-tying homer to start the seventh for the A’s.

White Sox 9, Yankees 6 (7), rain

NEW YORK — Eloy Jimenez hit his first two major league homers, including a tiebreaking shot in the fifth inning, and Chicago ended a five-game skid by beating banged-up New York in a rain-shortened game.

Jimenez’s two-run drive off Jonathan Holder made it 7-5, and he added a 446-foot solo homer in the seventh. James McCann followed with his first homer of the season, and then umpires pulled the teams off the field with one out. The game was called about 40 minutes later.

Pirates 6, Nationals 3 (10)

WASHINGTON — Colin Moran had a pinch-hit, three-run homer in the 10th inning and Pittsburgh scored five runs off Washington’s struggling bullpen.

Rays 11, Blue Jays 7

TORONTO — Austin Meadows and Brandon Lowe each hit two home runs, becoming the first teammates to hit upper deck homers at Toronto in the same game in the win for Tampa Bay.

The Rays won their fifth straight. It’s the second time this season Tampa Bay has won five straight.

Phillies 9, Marlins 1

MIAMI — Jake Arrieta allowed one run in seven innings to earn his 100th career victory and Philadelphia sent Miami to its fifth consecutive loss.

Arrieta (2-1) took a 6-0 lead into the seventh, when the Marlins ended a streak of 21 consecutive scoreless innings on Austin Dean’s sacrifice fly. He gave up five hits, struck out eight, lowered his ERA to 2.25 in three starts and improved to 100-68 in 10 seasons.

Mets 6, Braves 2

ATLANTA — Brandon Nimmo hit a two-run homer, Jeff McNeil added a two-run double and New York kept hitting even without Pete Alonso.

New York has scored six runs in six straight games. This time they did it without Alonso, the team’s hottest hitter, who got most of the night off. The first-place Mets, who have won three straight, scored four times in the fourth inning on McNeil’s hit and RBI doubles from Robinson Cano and Michael Conforto.

Royals 8, Indians 1

Gordon homered during a six-run first inning against Carlos Carrasco (1-2).

Padres 2, Diamondbacks 1

PHOENIX — Manny Machado homered and Chris Paddack limited Arizona to three hits over 5.1 innings to lead first-place San Diego.

In addition to his home run, Machado made a fine defensive play on a sharp grounder up the third base line late in the game. Fernando Tatis doubled, knocking in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning, and San Diego won its third straight and fourth in five games.

Astros 10, Mariners 6

SEATTLE — Jose Altuve and Yuli Gurriel hit grand slams and Houston limited heavy-hitting Seattle by using two starting pitchers.

Altuve’s career-best fourth straight game with a home run pushed the Astros’ major league-leading winning streak to seven games.

Seattle had its six-game winning streak halted.

The combination of starter Wade Miley, a former Mariners pitcher, and Brad Peacock (2-0) helped Houston hold down the Mariners.

But, Tom Murphy managed to extend the Mariners’ major league record home run streak. Seattle has homered in each of its first 16 games, with a ninth-inning solo shot off reliever Chris Devenski.
