ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Isaac Paredes homered and drove in four runs as the MLB-best Tampa Bay Rays took two of three from the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers with a wild 11-10 victory on Sunday.

Luke Raley beat out an infield single leading off the seventh and scored on Wander Franco’s grounder, giving the Rays an 11-10 advantage.

Chris Taylor homered twice, and Max Muncy, Trayce Thompson and J.D. Martinez also connected for the Dodgers. Muncy left in the third with a left hamstring cramp, which occurred running the bases.

Thompson, who entered in an 0-for-39 slide, had three hits and walked once.

Los Angeles slugger Freddie Freeman went 2 for 5 with two doubles to extend his hitting streak to 17 games. He is hitting .441 (30 for 68) over the stretch.

Tampa Bay left-hander Josh Fleming gave up 10 runs – eight earned – and 12 hits in six innings. He surrendered five homers.


Dodgers righty Gavin Stone allowed seven runs and 10 hits in two innings. He has a 14.40 ERA over his first three career starts.

The Los Angeles rotation is without Walker Buehler (Tommy John surgery), Dustin May (right forearm) and Julio Urías (left hamstring).

After Thompson hit a fifth-inning solo drive, Martinez and Taylor homered over a three-pitch stretch in the sixth to tie it at 10.

Jalen Beeks (2-2) worked a scoreless seventh before Jason Adam got six outs for his seventh save.

YANKEES 10, PADRES 7: Anthony Rizzo hit a go-ahead RBI single in New York’s seven-run third inning before injuring his neck on a pickoff play as the Yankees knocked out Yu Darvish early and beat the San Diego at Yankee Stadium.

Rizzo was injured when Kyle Higashioka picked off Fernando Tatis Jr. to end the sixth. As the first baseman leaned back to apply the tag, Rizzo collided with Tatis. Rizzo stayed on the ground for a few minutes and headed back to the clubhouse as the Yankees batted.


The Yankees said Rizzo’s exit was for precautionary reasons.

Jake Cronenworth hit a solo homer two batters in and Rougned Odor hit a two-run homer off Gerrit Cole (6-0), who allowed six runs (five earned) and four hits in six-plus innings.

GUARDIANS 4, CARDINALS 3: José Ramírez hit a two-run double with two out in the ninth inning, lifting the Guardians to a win over St. Louis in Cleveland.

Ramírez’s clutch hit off Ryan Helsley (3-4) rolled to the wall in right-center, scoring Myles Straw and Steven Kwan, who had drawn one-out walks.

The swing touched off a wild celebration for the Guardians, who have struggled to get clutch hits throughout the first two months of the season. Cleveland’s players stormed out of the dugout to playfully pound Ramírez, who threw his helmet high into the air between second and third base.

ROYALS 3, NATIONALS 2: Michael Massey’s single with two outs in the ninth scored MJ Melendez to cap a late rally that lifted Kansas City to a win at home.


The Royals hit homers in the seventh and eighth innings to tie the game, then pulled it out in the ninth to avoid a sweep.

MARLINS 2, ANGELS 0: Nick Fortes homered and doubled, rookie Eury Pérez pitched five innings of two-hit ball and Miami concluded its 10-game road trip with a victory and a series sweep of Los Angeles.

Pérez (2-1) and five Miami relievers combined on a five-hitter that ended the Angels’ majors-best streak of 94 consecutive games without a shutout loss since Aug. 21, 2022.

MARINERS 6, PIRATES 3: Eugenio Suárez hit a three-run home run in the 10th inning and host Seattle beat Pittsburgh for its sixth win in seven games.

The Mariners took a 3-1 lead with the help of solo home runs by Julio Rodríguez and Cal Raleigh, but blew it in the eighth with an error and a wild pitch that allowed the Pirates to rally to a 3-all tie in the eighth. Suárez entered the 10th inning 0 for 3 before hitting his sixth homer, to deep left field off Robert Stephenson (0-3).

The once NL-leading Pirates have lost four of five and have not won a series in May.



ORIOLES 3, RANGERS 2: Austin Hays singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning to cap a three-hit performance, and Baltimore won at home to avert a three-game sweep.

After Texas tied the game in the top of the eighth, Cedric Mullins opened the bottom half with a walk against Cole Ragans (2-2). Adley Rutschman followed with a single, and Hays greeted Joe Barlow with a sharp grounder up the middle against a drawn-up infield.

Félix Bautista struck out the side in the ninth for his 13th save in 17 tries.

ASTROS 10, ATHLETICS 1: Yordan Alvarez hit two of the Astros’ seven home runs, and Houston won in Oakland, California to complete another series sweep and hand the Athletics their 11th consecutive loss.

Alvarez homered off opener Ken Waldichuk in the first, then had another solo blast off Garrett Acton in the ninth, right after Jeremy Peña went deep. It was the second multi-homer game this week by Alvarez and the 15th of his career.


Jose Altuve had three hits, including his first home run of the season after missing Houston’s first 43 games with a fractured right thumb. Jake Meyers had a go-ahead three-run blast in the fourth. Chas McCormick and José Abreu added solo shots as the Astros won for the 14th time in 17 games.

BLUE JAYS 3, TWINS 0: José Berríos pitched around a season-high five walks and into the sixth inning for Toronto to beat his old team, and the Blue Jays blanked won in Minneapolis first its series win in four tries.

Alejandro Kirk hit a two-run single in the second inning that held up for Berríos (5-4), who has allowed two or fewer runs in seven of his last nine turns after a rough start.

TIGERS 6, WHITE SOX 5: Eric Haase’s 10th-inning sacrifice fly gave Detroit a win at home.

Alex Lange (3-0) pitched a scoreless top of the 10th, and Jonathan Schoop’s long fly ball off Reynaldo Lopez (4-4) moved Spencer Torkelson to third with one out.

Akil Baddoo was intentionally walked and Haase hit a fly ball to deep center to easily score Torkelson.



BREWERS 7, GIANTS 5: William Contreras homered and drove in three runs, and Milwaukee held on at home.

Owen Miller had two hits, scored twice and drove in two runs as Milwaukee salvaged the finale of the four-game series. Brian Anderson had two RBIs, and Christian Yelich walked twice and scored two runs.

The NL Central leaders were shut down by the Giants in the previous three games, only managing two runs and 13 hits.

ROCKIES 11, METS 10: Ryan McMahon homered for the third straight game and drove in five runs, Charlie Blackmon also went deep and Colorado  outslugged the Mets in Denver.

McMahon had a three-run double in a four-run fourth inning against Tylor Megill and hit a 437-foot, two-run homer to center field off Stephen Nogosek (0-1) an inning later when the Rockies scored five more times. Colorado erased a 6-2 deficit to take two of three in the series and complete a 5-2 homestand.

BRAVES 11, PHILLIES 4: Ronald Acuña Jr. drove in three runs with four hits, including a two-run single in Atlanta’s seven-run first inning, and the Braves beat Philadelphia in Atlanta to split the four-game series.

Matt Olson hit a pair of two-run homers for Atlanta, and Spencer Strider became the fastest pitcher in modern history to reach 100 strikeouts in a season.

Acuña hit a run-scoring triple in the fifth before Olson’s second homer to center. Acuña had two singles in the first when the Braves sent 11 batters to the plate, collected seven hits and opened a 7-0 lead. Led by Acuña and Olson, who had three hits, the Braves set a season high with 20 hits.



WHITE SOX: Liam Hendriks is ready to rejoin the Chicago White Sox after recovering from non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

The White Sox posted a video on Twitter on Sunday welcoming Hendriks back to the team, and the eccentric closer confirmed his return in an Instagram post that read, “See you soon Southside,” along with Monday’s date.

The 34-year-old Hendriks had no record and a 10.80 ERA in six rehab appearances with Triple-A Charlotte. The Australian right-hander allowed one run and one hit in one inning in his last game with the Knights on May 16.

Hendriks led the American League with a career-high 38 saves in his first year with Chicago. He was third in the majors with 37 saves and made his third All-Star team in 2022, but he noticed some lumps on his neck last summer.

He was diagnosed with stage 4 non-Hodgkin lymphoma and underwent immunotherapy and chemotherapy. He announced in April that he was in remission.

YANKEES: Pitcher Domingo Germán said Sunday he probably will use less rosin on his hands when he returns from a 10-game suspension for using a foreign substance on the mound.


Germán was suspended by Major League Baseball on May 17 and will return to the Yankees’ rotation for Monday’s game in Seattle.

“You have to do something different because what I did before got me ejected from the game,” he said through an interpreter. “Probably go back to previous years before where I used it way less.”

Germán was disciplined after being ejected in the fourth inning of New York’s 6-3 win in Toronto on May 16. He retired the first nine hitters before his hands were checked by first base umpire D.J. Reyburn as Germán headed to the mound for the fourth inning.

After the game, crew chief James Hoye said Germán had “the stickiest hand I’ve ever felt.”
