MLB roundup: M’s stun White Sox with walk-off slam

Cal Raleigh hit a grand slam with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Seattle Mariners rallied from a four-run deficit to defeat the visiting Chicago White Sox 8-4 on Monday night.

Dominic Canzone also went deep for the Mariners, who were blanked by White Sox starter Erick Fedde for the first seven innings. Luis Robert Jr. and Corey Julks homered for the White Sox, who dropped to 5-27 on the road.

Mariners reliever Ryne Stanek (4-1) gave up two singles but struck out the other three batters in the top of the ninth to earn the victory.

In the bottom of the inning, J.P. Crawford and Josh Rojas drew one-out walks off Jordan Leasure (0-2) before Julio Rodriguez lined a single to left to load the bases. Raleigh then hit a 2-0 fastball deep to right for his team-leading 12th homer of the season.

Yankees 4, Royals 2

Carlos Rodon threw seven solid innings, leading New York to a victory at Kansas City.

The game featured two key lineup changes for the Yankees: Juan Soto returned from a three-game absence caused by left forearm inflammation, and he went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run as the designated hitter. Aaron Judge got his first day off of the season.

Rodon (9-2) allowed a run on five singles to win his seventh consecutive start. Michael Tonkin earned his first save of the year with a scoreless ninth. The Royals’ Seth Lugo (9-2) yielded four runs in seven innings. Hunter Renfroe left in the fifth inning due to a fractured left big toe.

Giants 4, Astros 3 (10 innings)

Austin Slater lined a bases-loaded, one-out single to the fence in left field to cap a three-run 10th inning as San Francisco rallied to overcome visiting Houston.

RBI singles by Brett Wisely and Patrick Bailey got the Giants even with no outs, and Slater soon delivered the game-ending hit. Randy Rodriguez (2-1), who got the final out of the top of the 10th, earned the win.

Victor Caratini’s sacrifice fly and Alex Bregman’s RBI single gave the visitors a two-run lead in the top of the 10th. Rafael Montero (1-2) squandered the lead and took the loss.

Padres 6, A’s 1

Jake Cronenworth and Fernando Tatis Jr. each homered while Dylan Cease snapped a five-start winless streak as San Diego beat visiting Oakland.

Cease (6-5) allowed just one run while striking out eight in six innings. Jackson Merrill collected three of San Diego’s 10 hits, while Cronenworth and Manny Machado each bagged two.

The Athletics’ Joey Estes (2-2) permitted three runs over five innings. Tyler Soderstrom homered for Oakland.

Orioles 5, Rays 2

Ryan O’Hearn recorded three RBIs and Gunnar Henderson homered and scored three runs as Baltimore made history with a win over Tampa Bay, completing a four-game sweep in St. Petersburg, Fla.

O’Hearn and Henderson each finished with three hits as Baltimore earned its first-ever four-game sweep of Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field. Orioles starter Corbin Burnes (7-2) allowed two unearned runs and five hits across seven innings.

Alex Jackson hit a two-run shot and Yandy Diaz had two of Tampa Bay’s five hits. Rays starter Ryan Pepiot (4-3) yielded four runs on nine hits over six innings. He struck out nine without issuing a walk.

Twins 5, Rockies 0

Royce Lewis blasted a two-run homer, Chris Paddack tossed 6 1/3 strong innings and Minnesota pulled away for a win over Colorado in Minneapolis.

Paddack (5-3) scattered six hits, walked none and struck out six. Carlos Correa and Christian Vazquez each doubled and drove in a run for the Twins.

Rockies right-hander Dakota Hudson (2-8) took a hard-luck loss after giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits in 6 2/3 innings. Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 to lead Colorado at the plate.

Brewers 3, Blue Jays 1

Colin Rea pitched seven strong innings, Jackson Chourio and Willy Adames homered and Milwaukee defeated visiting Toronto.

Adames added a single and a sacrifice fly for Milwaukee in the opener of a three-game series. Rea (5-2) allowed one run and three hits to go along with four strikeouts and no walks in his longest start of the season.

Alejandro Kirk hit a solo home run for the Blue Jays, who are 2-2 on a six-game road trip. Spencer Horwitz had two of Toronto’s four hits. Jose Berrios (5-5) gave up three runs, five hits and one walk while striking out four in 5 2/3 innings.
