Tyler Austin, Yankees Home Run

A good day for New York City teams, as the Yankees win on a walk off home run by Tyler Austin to move closer towards a playoff spot on the wild card standings, while the Mets didn’t even play, but took over the Wild Card spot in the National League thanks to the Pittsburgh Pirates beating the St. Louis Cardinals.

Houston Astros 7  Cleveland Indians 10: The Astros lost their manager in the third inning, as he was ejected after a controversial call on a wild pitch with the bases loaded, which should have been called a foul ball. The Indians saw Carlos Santana hit his 30th home run of the season, opening a six-game lead over the Tigers, and sitting just one game behind the Rangers for AL home field advantage.

Tampa Bay Rays 4  New York Yankees 5: Winning their fifth game in a row, the Yankees are only 2 games behind the wild card spot. In a back and forth kind of day, the Yankees won with a walk-off home run from Tyler Austin. Brian McCann hit two home runs, making it to 19 this season.

Philadelphia Phillies 4  Washington Nationals 1: Alec Asher was terrific in a 6-inning start, allowing only 2 hits. Ryan Howard with a 3-run homer and a solo home run by Peter Bourjos took care of the offense.

Cincinnati Reds 1  Pittsburgh Pirates 4: A complete game from Ivan Nova led the Pirates to a second straight win, and Jung Ho Kang with a couple of RBIs stood out once more among the Pirates bats.

Milwaukee Brewers 12  St. Louis Cardinals 5: The red hot Brewers (3 in a row) cause the Cardinals to fall out of their wild card spot, good news for the Mets. Domingo Santana, Orlando Arcia and Martin Maldonado hit home runs, while Junior Geurra earned the win.

Texas Rangers 3  Seattle Mariners 6: The Mariners win their second in a row, powered by home runs from Dae Ho Lee and Kyle Seager, making it a very bad start for Derek Holland, not finishing the 5th inning.

Colorado Rockies 1  San Diego Padres 14: Ryan Schimpf hit his 18th home run of the season to finish with 4 RBIs (3-run homer) and Clayton Richard looked good in 7 innings of work, striking out 8 and allowing six hits.
