Around the Bases: Sunday scores & highlights


Torii Hunter hit his 300th home run, Fredi Gonzalez won his 500th game, and both Stephen Strasburg and Johnny Cueto made successful returns from the disabled list on Sunday.

Indians 2, Nationals 0: Cory Kluber pitched a dominant eight innings, scattering seven hits while striking out eight and walking none. Stephen Strasburg allowed one run over five innings in his first start since returning from the 15-day DL.

Reds 5, Brewers 1: Jonny Cueto pitched well in his first start since returning from a shoulder injury, allowing one run and five hits over six innings. Zack Cozart and Joey Votto both had multi-hit games for Cincinnati.

Mets 4, Cubs 3: Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit a walk-off three-run home run against Carlos Marmol in the bottom of the ninth inning. Marmol now has more blown saves in 2013 than successful saves.

Marlins 7, Cardinals 2: Marlins hitters tagged Cardinals starter Tyler Lyons for six runs on eight hits over 5 innings. Ricky Nolasco only allowed one run on three hits over seven innings to earn his fourth win of the season.

Orioles 6, Red Sox 3: Chris Davis hit home run No. 23 of the season off Jon Lester, while Nick Markakis went 4-for-5 at the plate with two doubles. Adam Jones chipped in with two doubles, while Manny Machado hit his league-leading 32nd double of the season.

Royals 5, Rays 3: Wade Davis pitched pretty well against his former team, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings. Alcides Escobar finished the day 3-for-4 with a double and a RBI, while Eric Hosmer and Billy Buter both had multi-hit games. But Tampa was able to shrug off the loss with the post-game announcement that top prospect Wil Myers was recalled from Triple-A and will join the team on Tuesday in Boston:

Tigers 5, Twins 2: Torii Hunter hit his 300th career home run against the team he broke into the league with. Doug Fister carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning, and ended up allowing two runs in 7 innings.

Astros 5, White Sox 4: Jason Castro hit a two-run home run off Matt Thornton in the bottom of the seventh inning, giving the Astros the insurance runs they needed to hold on to the victory.

Blue Jays 7, Rangers 2: Chien-Ming Wang tossed seven shutout innings against the Rangers, earning his first victory as a member of the Blue Jays. J.P. Arencibia, Colby Rasmus and Adam Lind all hit home runs for Toronto.

Yankees 6, Angels 5: C.C. Sabathia threw eight strong innings, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out six Angels. Travis Hafner hit a three-run homer off Jared Weaver, his 11th of the season.

Padres 4, Diamondbacks 1: Clayton Richard only surrendered one run on seven hits in eight innings against the Diamondbacks. Kyle Blanks hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning to snap a 1-1 tie.

Rockies 5, Phillies 2: Jhouyls Chacin held the Phillies scoreless for eight innings, and finished one out away from a complete game. Carlos Gonzalez mashed a two-run homer, his 20th of the year, while Wilin Rosario added a solo home run.

Pirates 6, Dodgers 3: Gerrit Cole won his second major league start, allowing three runs on seven hits over 5 innings, thanks to a three-run home run by Pedro Alvarez off Zack Greinke in the fifth inning. Jason Grilli pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his league-leading 25th save of the year:

Athletics 10, Mariners 2: Josh Reddick went 4-for-5 and finished a double shy of the cycle, leading Oakland to a blowout win at home. But the post-game story was the flood in both clubhouses that forced players from both teams upstairs to shower in the Raiders locker room.

Braves 3, Giants 0: Julio Teheran and three relievers combined to shutout the Giants, giving the Braves the weekend series at home. Tim Lincecum took the loss for San Francisco and walked five in defeat, the most he has had since walking seven on April 3. The win for Atlanta gave manager Fredi Gonzalez his 500th career win.
