Phillies rally to beat D-backs and avoid series sweep

Trea Turner tied the game with a two-run homer in the ninth inning and Alec Bohm hit the winning single in the 10th to rally the Philadelphia Phillies from five runs down in a 6-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila).

Turner delivered his first highlightreel hit for the Phillies when he connected to left field off reliever Jose Ruiz (1-1) with two outs, tying the game at 5.

Bryson Stott hit a two-out single to center off Ruiz in the ninth that set the stage for Turner to deliver his biggest blast for his new team.

Ruiz stayed in the game for the 10th and walked two to load the bases with the automatic runner. Bohm lofted one to right that landed on the warning track and scored Dalton Guthrie, helping the Phillies avoid a three-game sweep.

Craig Kimbrel (3-1) worked the 10th for the win.

Evan Longoria hit a two-run homer and Emmanuel Rivera drove in three runs for the Diamondbacks.

Orioles 9, Yankees 6

In New York, Adam Frazier hit a three-run homer and pinch-hitter Gunnar Henderson had a go-ahead, two-run double in an eight-run seventh inning as Baltimore rallied and stopped New York’s season-high winning streak at five games.

Baltimore sent 12 batters to the plate in the seventh against Nestor Cortes and the bullpen. It was the Orioles’ highest-scoring inning this season in a game that started after a 1-hour, 36-minute rain delay.

Ryan Mountcastle homered in the fourth inning, and Anthony Santander and Austin Hays had hit RBI singles in the seventh for the Orioles.

New York’s Gleyber Torres hit a tworun homer in the third and a solo drive in the fifth, giving him nine homers this season and 14 career multi-homer games. Isiah Kiner-Falefa tripled and homered for the Yankees.

Mike Baumann (4-0) earned the win, while Félix Bautista got three outs for his 12th save in 16 chances.

Brewers 4, Astros 0

In Milwaukee, Adrian Houser allowed two hits in 5 1/3 scoreless innings and Milwaukee homered three times in its win over Houston.

Willy Adames hit a two-run blast in the first inning to put the Brewers ahead for good. Owen Miller and Brian Anderson added solo shots in the seventh.

The Astros mustered four hits, two off their season low and went scoreless in the last two games of the series.

Houser struck out three and walked one in his fourth appearance of the season, which followed six shutout innings in a 1-0 loss at Tampa Bay.

The Brewers got all the offense they would need in the first inning against Astros starter Brandon Bielak (1-2). After Christian Yelich led off with a double to left, Willy Adames delivered a 429-foot blast over the center-field wall.

Cubs 4, Mets 2

In Chicago, Marcus Stroman had his longest outing of the season, pitching eight efficient innings in Chicago’s win over New York.

Nico Hoerner homered in Chicago’s second straight victory since coming home after a 2-7 trip. Seiya Suzuki also drove in a run with a double off japanese countryman Kodai Senga.

Stroman (4-4) threw just 88 pitches, 59 for strikes. The right-hander allowed four hits, struck out three and walked two. Mark Leiter Jr. worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his second save.

Francisco Álvarez hit a two-run shot in the third, but that was it for the Mets. Senga (4-3) labored through five innings for New York, allowing three runs and six hits.

Braves 4, Dodgers 3

In Atlanta, Ozzie Albies’ sacrifice fly drove in Austin Riley in the bottom of the ninth and Atlanta avoided a threegame sweep against Los Angeles.

Austin Riley doubled to left field off Phil Bickford (1-2) to lead off the ninth. Riley moved to third on Travis d’Arnaud’s grounder to first. Following an intentional walk to Eddie Rosario, Albies’ fly to deep right field allowed Riley to score easily.

Tony Gonsolin’s 14-inning streak of scoreless innings ended with Matt Olson’s 456-foot home run in the fourth for Atlanta.
