MLB roundup: Carlos Correa, Twins trounce Rockies

Carlos Correa had a career-high five hits and Carlos Santana ripped a bases-clearing double, powering the Minnesota Twins to a 17-9 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday in Minneapolis.

Royce Lewis and Willi Castro each homered to highlight their three-hit performances for Minnesota, which banged out a season-high 24 hits.

Jose Miranda and Christian Vazquez each belted a two-run double in the Twins’ seven-run eighth inning. Every member of Minnesota’s starting lineup notched at least one hit and one RBI.

Twins starter Pablo Lopez (6-6) allowed two runs on five hits in five innings. Rockies starter Austin Gomber (1-4) was shredded for eight runs on 11 hits in three-plus innings. Colorado’s Jacob Stallings and Brenton Doyle each had two hits and two RBIs.

Rangers 3, Dodgers 2

Corey Seager hit a three-run home run in his return to Dodger Stadium as Texas edged host Los Angeles. Seager, who left the Dodgers via free agency after the 2021 season, had missed the Rangers’ previous four games because of a left hamstring strain.

Texas’ Kirby Yates put two runners on in the ninth and the Dodgers’ Jason Heyward hit a line drive toward the gap in right-center. Will Smith scored, but Andy Pages was thrown out at home for the final out. Shohei Ohtani hit a first-inning homer for Los Angeles’ other run.

Dodgers starter Walker Buehler (1-4) gave up three runs (two earned) over five innings. Buehler has just one win in seven starts since returning from a nearly two-year absence after his second Tommy John surgery.

Brewers 5, Blue Jays 4

Milwaukee surged ahead with a five-run sixth inning, then squashed a three-run ninth-inning rally by visiting Toronto to capture the three-game series.

Trailing 5-4, the Blue Jays threatened with two runners on base and no outs, forcing the Brewers to turn to closer Trevor Megill. Blue Jays pinch hitter Vladmir Guerrero Jr. flied out to center for the final out, giving Megill his 11th save of the season.

Milwaukee’s Tobias Myers (3-2) threw six innings of one-run ball. Toronto reliever Zach Pop (0-1) took the loss after surrendering three runs in two-thirds of an inning.

Giants 5, Astros 3

Austin Slater had three hits and drove in two runs out of the leadoff spot, Logan Webb outpitched Framber Valdez, and host San Francisco wrapped up a three-game series win over Houston.

After two low-scoring affairs that resulted in a split, the Giants got their bats going against Valdez (5-4). They roughed him up for five runs in just four innings, taking a 5-1 lead they massaged to the finish.

Webb (6-5) gave up three runs in six innings. Camilo Doval threw a perfect ninth inning for his 12th save.

Padres 5, Athletics 4

Jackson Merrill’s second homer of the game came with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning and lifted San Diego over visiting Oakland.

Merrill cracked a first-pitch slider from Mason Miller (1-1) into the seats in right field. Robert Suarez (4-0) pitched a scoreless top of the ninth for his second victory in less than 24 hours as the Padres swept a series for the first time in six attempts this year.

Donovan Solano also belted two homers for San Diego, wiping out the Athletics’ 4-2 lead in the eighth with a two-run shot off Lucas Erceg. Shea Langeliers and Zack Gelof each had two hits and an RBI for the A’s.

Orioles 4, Braves 2

Colton Cowser hit a two-run home run to break an eighth-inning tie as host Baltimore beat slumping Atlanta.

Cowser’s eighth home run of the season, and his first since May 26, matched a two-run homer by Atlanta’s Matt Olson in the top of the inning as the Orioles pushed their winning streak to six games.

Gio Urshela had a two-run double for the Tigers, while Matt Vierling and Riley Greene hit solo homers. Detroit starter Reese Olson (1-8) gave up five runs (four earned) and 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Reds 4, Guardians 2

Jeimer Candelario homered twice and drove in all four runs while starter Nick Lodolo was supported by a pair of key defensive plays to help Cincinnati beat visiting Cleveland, earning a split of the two-game set.

Candelario finished 3-for-4 in front of 42,427 fans, the most to ever attend a Monday through Thursday regular-season game at Great American Ball Park.

With two outs and the bases loaded in the third inning, Reds shortstop Elly De La Cruz backhanded an Andres Gimenez grounder in the hole and threw out Gimenez by a half-step for the final out of the inning to preserve a 1-1 tie. An inning later, Cincinnati left fielder Jacob Hurtubise threw out Bryan Rocchio at the plate for the second out of the frame.

Cubs 4, Rays 3

Cody Bellinger stroked a go-ahead three-run homer as Chicago evened its three-game series with Tampa Bay in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Bellinger, who finished 2-for-5, bashed Cleavinger’s pitch 407 feet to right-center for a 4-2 advantage that stood up as the Cubs moved to 2-4 on their seven-game road trip.

The Rays’ Jose Siri went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and double. Isaac Paredes doubled in a run.

Mets 10, Marlins 4

Harrison Bader, Starling Marte and Francisco Lindor homered for host New York, which never trailed in a win over Miami.

Tyrone Taylor tied a career high with four hits while Bader, Marte and Francisco Alvarez each finished with two RBIs for the Mets, who have won seven of the past 11 games.

Dane Myers, Emmanuel Rivera, Bryan De La Cruz and Jazz Chisholm Jr. each had an RBI for the Marlins, who lost for the seventh time in nine games.

Red Sox 8, Phillies 6

Enmanuel Valdez and David Hamilton each drove in two runs as Boston stormed back to defeat visiting Philadelphia.

The Red Sox totaled 13 hits and climbed out from a 4-0 deficit by scoring in each of the three middle innings, highlighted by a five-run fifth. Jarren Duran went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run, while Rafael Devers (triple), Hamilton (home run) and Ceddanne Rafaela each added two hits.

Philadelphia managed only three hits against five Boston relievers, including winner Cam Booser (1-2), who earned his first major league win. The Phillies’ Nick Castellanos doubled, tripled and scored two runs.

Cardinals 4, Pirates 2

Nolan Arenado went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI and host St. Louis held on to beat Pittsburgh to even the teams’ three-game series at one win apiece.

Henry Davis hit a solo homer for Pittsburgh. Michael A. Taylor drove in the Pirates’ other run.

Cardinals right-hander Sonny Gray (8-4) held the Pirates to one run on four hits in seven innings. Pirates left-hander Bailey Falter (3-4) allowed three runs on eight hits in four innings.

Yankees 11, Royals 5

Jose Trevino, Giancarlo Stanton and Gleyber Torres each homered as visiting New York beat Kansas City for its fourth straight win.

The Yankees have won 12 of 14 and have outscored the Royals 25-8 while winning the first three of the four-game series.

Kansas City’s Bobby Witt Jr. had three hits and is batting .414 during his 13-game hitting streak, tied for his career best.

Mariners 2, White Sox 1 (10 innings)

Pinch hitter Mitch Haniger singled home the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning as host Seattle defeated Chicago.

Haniger’s hit to right field off Steven Wilson (1-3) scored Luke Raley, the automatic runner. Raley homered in the seventh inning to break a scoreless tie for the Mariners. Trent Thornton (3-1) got the win.

White Sox pinch hitter Luis Robert Jr. lined the first pitch from Mariners reliever Mike Baumann in the ninth inning just over the left field wall to tie the score at 1-1.

Angels 8, Diamondbacks 3

Jose Soriano pitched eight-plus solid innings and Zach Neto and Jo Adell each homered as Los Angeles rolled over Arizona in Phoenix.

Soriano (4-5) induced the Diamondbacks to hit into four double plays in the longest outing of his major league career. He lost his shutout attempt in the eighth inning when Christian Walker hit a solo homer. Soriano gave up two runs and five hits.

Matt Moore allowed a two-run homer to Ketel Marte before finishing the ninth for Los Angeles. Walker and Marte had two hits apiece for the Diamondbacks. Adell hit a three-run shot, Neto had three hits, two RBIs and two runs and Nolan Schanuel also had three hits for the Angels.
