Around the Bases: Friday's scores and highlights

Chris Sale struck out 14 and didn't allow an earned run ... but still lost. Meanwhile, Madison Bumgarner took a no-hitter into the sixth inning.

Miss any of Friday's MLB action? Here are the day's scores and highlights:

Orioles 2, Red Sox 0: Chris Tillman held the Red Sox offense scoreless for six innings, allowing just three hits and four walks. Chris Davis bumped his home run total up to 22 and Adam Jones added another run with an infield single.

Pirates 3, Dodgers 0: Jeff Locke was excellent, throwing seven shutout innings with just two hits and one walked allowed. Andrew McCutchen's third inning two-run double was all the Pirates needed to give Locke the win and to give McCutchen happy feet.


Indians 2, Nationals 1: Drew Stubbs delivered the winning run in dramatic fashion, racing from third on a ground ball to first and just making it under Kurt Suzuki's tag. Both pitchers were at their best; Masterson went seven with 10 strikeouts with just one run allowed and Gio Gonzalez was nearly as good with seven innings pitched, one run allowed and eight strikeouts.

Cubs 6, Mets 3: The Cubs lost David DeJesus after this nasty collision with the wall in center, but before he left he drove in three runs with a triple at the center of a four-run second inning. Edwin Jackson held the Mets to just one run over six inning and struck out seven.


Royals 7, Rays 2: The Royals are on fire under new hitting coach George Brett. This win bumps them to 10-3 in June. Billy Butler drove in three runs and Salvador Perez brought in two as the Royals beat up on Matt Moore.

Reds 4, Brewers 3: Jay Bruce hit a walk-off home run in the 10th to give the Reds the win and bail out Bronson Arroyo. Arroyo allowed 12 hits but somehow managed to pitch into the eighth inning and hold the Brewers to just two runs. He did, however, give up the game-tying home run to Martin Maldonado.

Marlins 5, Cardinals 4: Jose Fernandez gave up two quick runs in the first, but settled down to last seven innings and strike out 10 Cardinals. Giancarlo Stanton's fifth-inning double plated two and gave the Marlins the lead for good.

Giants 6, Braves 0: Madison Bumgarner flirted with a perfect game, reaching the fifth before issuing his only walk to B.J. Upton and not allowing a hit until the sixth. He finished with seven innings pitched, two hits and one walk allowed and 10 strikeouts. Gregor Blanco's first inning homer was all he needed, but got plenty more from the Giants offense.

Blue Jays 8, Rangers 0: Mark Buehrle went seven scoreless innings allowing just four hits and one walk while striking out sevn. The Blue Jays hit Justin Grimm hard, getting homers from Colby Rasmus and J.P. Arencibia.

Astros 2, White Sox 1: Life is severely unfair to Chris Sale with this one. Despite striking out 14 in eight innings of work and allowing no earned runs, he takes the loss thanks to an error from Alexei Ramirez that resulted in two unearned runs.

Tigers 4, Twins 0: Rick Porcello went seven scoreless innings allowing just three hits with five strikeout and no walks. Prince Fielder hit a two-run double at the start of a four-run fourth that gave Porcello the win.

Phillies 8, Rockies 7: Kyle Kendrick struggled badly and the Phillies found themselves down by five in after six but back-to-back three-run innings put them over the top. Freddy Galvis led the charge with two triples to drive in four runs on the night.

Padres 2, Diamondbacks 1: Eric Stults threw a two-hit complete game to beat Trevor Cahill in this pitchers' duel. Slults allowed just one run in the first after Gerardo Parra amd scored on a Cody Ross sacrifice fly, then cruised. Cahill had far less staying power, with just 5 2/3 innings pitch but his ten strikeouts dwarfed Stultz's meager total of three. Logan Forsythe's two-RBI single in sixth was the difference for the Padres.

Mariners 3, Athletics 2: A defensive gaffe in the fifth allowed the Athletics to tie the game. Second baseman Nick Franklin and right fielder Jason Bay collided on a popup, sending the ball caroming 100 feet from anyone in right field. However, Seattle recaptured the lead when rookie catcher Mike Zunino hit the first home run of his career. The teams traded runs after that for the final score.


Angels 5, Yankees 2: Los Angeles broke the game open with runs in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings to lift C.J. Wilson to a 5-5 record. Wilson allowed two runs on five hits and struck out four in seven innings. Mark Trumbo went 3-for-4.
