BALTIMORE (AP) – The New York Yankees hit five more home runs at Camden Yards, including two by Mike Tauchman, to set a major league record and win their 13th straight game in Baltimore, 9-6 over the Orioles. New York’s power surge overshadowed a memorable night for Baltimore’s Jonathan Villar, who became the fifth Orioles player to hit for the cycle and first since Felix Pie in 2009.

PHOENIX (AP) – Vince Velasquez allowed two runs in a season-high seven innings and Scott Kingery homered in his hometown ballpark, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Velasquez (4-6) gave up six hits, struck out three and got help from a running catch in left field by Adam Haseley with a runner on and two outs in the seventh, taking a hit away from Arizona’s Carson Kelly.

CLEVELAND (AP) – All-Star Mike Minor struck out seven over seven innings, Nomar Mazara drove in Elvis Andrus with a sacrifice fly in the fourth and the Texas Rangers beat the Cleveland Indians 1-0. Minor allowed seven hits and walked one as Texas won its fifth straight. The left-hander is 3-0 in eight career appearances against Cleveland, giving up a single run in 23 1/3 innings.

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Christian Yelich homered twice, giving him a major-league leading 39 home runs this season and powering the Milwaukee Brewers to a 9-7 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday. Brewers starter Jordan Lyles (7-7) limited his former team to three runs (one earned) on two hits in five innings in his first start against the Pirates since being traded on July 29.

ATLANTA (AP) – Vince Carter is returning to the Atlanta Hawks for his 22nd season in the NBA. A person told The Associated Press that the 42-year-old Carter has agreed to terms one a one-year contract with the Hawks. Carter will continue to serve as a mentor to some of the NBA’s most promising young talent, including first-round picks D’Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish.

BALTIMORE (AP) – The New York Yankees continued their home run binge against the Baltimore Orioles, hitting six more and getting three RBIs from Austin Romine in a 9-4 rout Tuesday night, their 14th consecutive victory at Camden Yards. One night after going deep five times, the Yankees went one better against the Orioles’ beleaguered pitching staff.

PHOENIX (AP) – Eduardo Escobar and Alex Avila both homered and drove in three runs, and the Arizona Diamondbacks came from behind for an 8-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. David Peralta also homered for Arizona, which has won three of four as it fights for a National League wild-card spot.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Clayton Kershaw struck out nine in seven strong innings, Justin Turner had two hits and drove in the game-winning run and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 for their seventh win in eight games. Kershaw allowed only one run on four hits.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Kurt Suzuki hit a two-run homer and RBI single during a three-hit night, Trea Turner added a solo drive to help back Anibal Sanchez, and the Washington Nationals beat the San Francisco Giants 5-3. Sanchez allowed one earned run on four hits in six innings, struck out three and walked one to win his seventh straight decision since a loss at the Dodgers on May 10.

NEW YORK (AP) – Zack Wheeler ground up Miami over eight innings, Wilson Ramos and Pete Alonso homered, and the New York Mets beat the Marlins 5-0 for their 12th win in 13 games. The hard-charging Mets improved to 58-56 a night after surpassing the .500. New York has the best record in baseball since the All-Star break and improbably entered the day 2 1/2 games behind Philadelphia for an NL wild card despite looking like trade deadline sellers in mid-July. Wheeler threw just 99 pitches.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minnesota Twins have been putting on a power display this season at Target Field. Atlanta witnessed it yesterday, as Ozzie Albies homered twice in his second straight four-hit game. But the Braves produced an even bigger show of strength as Ronald Acuna Jr. and Freddie Freeman both went deep in an 11-7 victory over the Twins. AL Central rivals Cleveland come to Minneapolis next.

NEW YORK (AP) – A disappointing season for the New York Mets is starting to look like it may have some postseason possibility. Michael Conforto homered twice, Pete Alonso and Jeff McNeil hit two-run shots and the surging New York Mets beat the Miami Marlins 7-2 to complete a four-game sweep. That puts them just one game out of a wild card spot.

PHOENIX (AP) – Arizona knocked of one of the teams it’s chasing in the wild card race. Zac Gallen threw five scoreless innings and helped himself with a run-scoring sacrifice bunt in his Diamondbacks debut, leading them to a 6-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Arizona moves to 1 1/2 games out of the second wild card spot in the National League.

  1. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – “Not good enough.” That was Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash’s blunt assessment after the Rays closed out a homestand against Miami and Toronto with a 3-2 record. Toronto reliever Brock Stewart allowed two hits over four scoreless innings in his Toronto debut as the Blue Jays withstood a late Tampa Bay rally for a 4-3 victory. The Rays still hold a half game lead for the second AL wild card spot over the Oakland Athletics, who lost 10-1 to the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

BOSTON (AP) – Kansas City Royals speedster Billy Hamilton is so fast even the first base umpire couldn’t seem to believe it. Hamilton was called out at first by umpire Mark Carlson twice in the first four innings of Wednesday night’s game against the Boston Red Sox. Both times the plays were overturned on instant replay. The game was suspended by rain with the score tied 4-4 in the top of the 10th inning. The game will be picked up where it left off – with a 2-1 count on Meibrys Viloria – on a mutual off-day, Aug. 22.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) – With LeSean McCoy resting, and Frank Gore limited to two series, rookie running back Devin Singletary got the Buffalo Bills off to a running start in their preseason-opening 24-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts struggled on offense while sitting out numerous starters, including starting quarterback Andrew Luck, who is nursing a strained left calf.

BALTIMORE (AP) – Lamar Jackson directed two scoring drives in three possessions, and the Baltimore Ravens’ defense throttled Jacksonville Jaguars backup quarterback Gardner Minshew in a 29-0 preseason victory. The Jaguars played without quarterback Nick Foles, the 2018 Super Bowl MVP who was signed as a free agent in March.
