In another day of home run plentifulness, Trevor Story stood out in his phenomenal rookie season, while Mac Williamson did well for the San Francisco Giants in an extra innings win over the New York Yankees, while Stephen Drew won it for the Washington Nationals against the San Diego Padres with a walk off triple.

Chicago Cubs 1  Milwaukee Brewers 6: The Cubs winning streak ends as they’re held to just six hits with some solid pitching from Zach Davies. Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit two home runs and JOnathan Lucroy added more to his value, as the trade talk regarding him continues.

Seattle Mariners 14  Toronto Blue Jays 5: The Mariners go off on the Blue Jays, including a good start for Hisashi Iwakuma, giving up four hits and two runs in six innings. Nelson Cruz hit two home runs, finishing with 7 RBIs, and Kyle Seager helped out with his 19th home run of the season.

San Francisco Giants 2  New York Yankees 1: In a game that came down to the 12th inning, it was Mac Williamson that won it for the Giants. His home run in the 5th inning tied the game, and his 12th inning single won it, followed by Hunter Strickland saving it in his closing inning.

Philadelphia Phillies 4  Pittsburgh Pirates 7: The Pirates lost Tyler Glasnow for shoulder pain after only three innings, but the bat work of Gregory Polanco, David Freese and Francisco Cervelli made up for their pitching turmoil.

Cleveland Indians 2  Baltimore Orioles 5: A two run homer by Mark Trumbo, his 30th of the season, gave the Orioles a 3-0 lead, followed by Pedro Alvarez hitting a deep ball too, helping Kevin Gausman get his second win of the season.

Minnesota Twins 11  Boston Red Sox 9: In a wild game with a total of 34 hits, it was Eduardo Nunez with a two-RBI single that put the Twins on top for good, capping off a five-run 7th inning for the Twins, followed by Miguel Sano hitting home run number 15 of the season to set the final score.

Detroit Tigers 3  Chicago White Sox 3: Stopped after 8 innings with a tied score, will resume on Sunday.

Arizona Diamondbacks 1  Cincinnati Reds 6: The Diamondbacks lose their fourth in a row to further the anguish of this season, once again being the team that scores first. Jay Bruce hit a three-run homer, his 20th of the season, which might make it easier for the Reds to trade him.

Los Angeles Angels 2  Houston Astros 7: A third win in a row for the Astros, getting a two-homer day from Evan Gattis, finishing with four RBIs off of his two hits. Collin McHugh allowed six hits and two runs (one homer) in his start, improving to 7-6 this season.

Atlanta Braves 4  Colorado Rockies 8: Trevor Story hit two home runs, making it to 26 this season, passing the rookie mark set by Troy Tulowitzki in 2007. The record for a rookie shortstop is 30 by Nomar Garciaparra in 1997, a mark Story is projected to blow by.

Tampa Bay Rays 3  Oakland Athletics 4: Down 3-1 entering the 9th inning, a couple of home runs saved the A’s: First Jake Smolinski with a two-run homer to tie the game, followed by the walk off winner from Ryon Healy, his second homer of the season.
