The Miami Marlins walked off against the St Louis Cardinals in MLB as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays.

Derek Dietrich delivered a two-out RBI triple as the Marlins clinched a 5-4 walk-off win against the Cardinals, moving above St Louis in the National League (NL) wildcard standings.

The Orioles scored four times in the 12th to beat the Blue Jays 6-2 and reclaim top spot in the American League (AL) East.

Claiming big wins were the Detroit Tigers (11-0 over the Houston Astros), Cleveland Indians (8-0 over the Oakland Athletics) and Los Angeles Dodgers (14-3 over the Arizona Diamondbacks).

The Cincinnati Reds edged the San Diego Padres 3-2 and the San Francisco Giants overcame the Washington Nationals 3-1.

A five-run ninth saw the Boston Red Sox rally past the Los Angeles Angels 5-3, the Texas Rangers beat the Kansas City Royals 5-3 and the Milwaukee Brewers claimed a 4-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Brian Dozier homered twice as the Minnesota Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 6-4, the Atlanta Braves were 2-1 winners over the Philadelphia Phillies and the Tampa Bay Rays claimed a 5-3 victory over the New York Yankees.

The Chicago Cubs rallied past the Seattle Mariners 7-6 through 12 innings and the New York Mets got past the Colorado Rockies 6-4.


The Tigers thrashed the Astros and Miguel Cabrera had more fun than anyone, crushing two home runs and driving in four. He had three hits in four at-bats and scored three runs.


Stealing home has become a rarity in major-league baseball. And a player who steals home standing up? That's rarer than a total eclipse. Wil Myers caught Reds pitcher Homer Bailey napping to swipe home.


Things got strange in San Francisco. Pitcher Madison Bumgarner pinch-hit for Matt Cain, who had a no-hitter intact through five innings. Bumgarner doubled off the wall and then was replaced by pinch runner (and fellow pitcher) Jeff Samardzija. It is certainly not the first time a pitcher has pinch-hit for a pitcher in MLB history, but we cannot imagine too many scenarios where that pitcher was in turn replaced by a fellow pitcher as a pinch runner.


The Yankees and Mets are viewed as heading in opposite directions, but the former are only two games behind the Mets in terms of their won-loss record. CC Sabathia (6-8, 3.95 ERA) will open the series for the Yankees. He pitched very well early in the season, but has a 6.70 ERA in his last seven starts. The Mets will counter with Logan Verrett, who has a 4.12 ERA in 27 appearances as a starter and reliever.
