NEW YORK (AP) Noah Syndergaard had problems with a rusty return from the disabled list and played with an RBI single when the New York Mets defeated the Washington Nationals 4-2 on Friday night.
Amed Rosario tripled and doubled, both times over Bryce Harper & # 39; s head in midfield, and the Mets won for the sixth time in their last 26 home games. Brandon Nimmo had three goals for New York, who built a three-run cushion in the first inning against battered starter Tanner Roark.
Roark (3-12) became the first 12-player loser in the majors this season. He allowed four runs and eight hits in five innings.
Matt Adams married for the inconsistent Nationals, who dropped back to .500 at 47-47. They have lost just three out of 13 games at Citi Field since the start of last season.
After missing his right forefinger for seven weeks with a strained ligament, Syndergaard (5-1) came in with 99 mph fastballs.
Robert Gsellman gave up Adams' top deck shot in the eighth round but got six outs for his fourth parade.
BLUE JAYS 13, RED SOX 7
BOSTON (AP) – Kevin Pillar had four goals and Justin Smoak had three, including a pair of homers, and they drove in four runs apiece to help Toronto break Boston's 10-game winning streak.
Dwight Smith Jr. also married for Toronto, which won for the second time in six games. Jake Petricka (1-0) threw two innings of Shutout Ball in the relief of Ryan Borucki, who took only three plus innings but left with an 8-6 lead.
Mookie Betts had three goals, including two triples, to raise his Major League average to .357. J.D. Martinez scored twice for the Red Sox, who have won 15 of their last 17 games and will be in the all-star break with the best record in baseball and AL East's lead.
Rick Porcello (11-4) allowed seven goals and eight runs in two innings to claim the loss.
DODGERS 3, ANGEL 2
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Max Muncy got hot and drove into the go-ahead in the seventh inning, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers pass the Angels in the resumption of the Freeway Series.
The Angels took two out of three in Anaheim last week.
Muncy, who will participate in the Home Run Derby next week, moved into the right center against Cam Bedrosian (3-2), scoring the 3-2 lead for the Dodgers with Prank-Hitter Logan Forsythe and Joc Pederson.
Muncy was second in the throw of right fielder Kole Calhoun, who sailed over the head of catcher Jose Briceno. Bedrosian hurried to the backstop, but he bobbed and had no throw on the plate when Pederson scored.
Caleb Ferguson (2-1) won with two perfect innings of relief. Scott Alexander led a double game to end the ninth for his first save.
PHILIPPINES 2, MARLINS 0
MIAMI (AP) – Aaron Altherr drove in his first run in July and later launched a sensational squad to protect the lead. He helped Jake Arrieta and Philadelphia to overtake the Miami.
Arrieta (7-6) threw seven innings of three beaten ball. Victor Arano got three outs and Pat Neshek finished the three-hitter for his first rescue.
Maikel Franco beat his 13th homer of the season in ninth for the Phillies, who have won 10 of their last 13.
For Marlins starter Wei-Yin Chen (2-7) it was another brilliant home game. He allowed one run and five strokes in six innings, grazed eight – most since May 2016 – and one on foot. At home this season, his ERA is now 1.83. On the street it is 10.47.
INDIAN 6, YANKEES 5
CLEVELAND (AP) – Rookie right-hander Shane Bieber threw himself into the eighth inning and Cleveland's shaky bullpen narrowed things down.
Bieber (5-1) was removed to the double by Tyler Wade double in the eighth and Cleveland's lead 6-3. Brett Gardner's RBI Groundout cut the lead to two and set up a thrilling ninth inning.
Closer Allen, who clinched a career-high run of 6s in the ninth inning against Cincinnati on Tuesday, relinquished Giancarlo Stanton's leadoff homer, but took his 19th win in 20 appearances.
The Indians broke a series of seven defeats against the Yankees from last year's series AL Series when New York came off a 2-0 deficit. The Yankees won the first four games between the teams this season.
Yankee rookie Domingo German (2-5) allowed six runs – matching a season high – in four plus innings.
CUBS 5, PADRES 4, 10 INNINGS
SAN DIEGO (AP) – Anthony Rizzo scored twice in the ninth inning with two outs and Javier Baez fired in the tenth round to pick up Chicago over San Diego.
All-star closer Brad's hand was one away from his 25th save as Rizzo doubled into the gap in the left center to bring in pinch-runner Jason Heyward. Hand had retired Ben Zobrist and Ian Happ, before he met the car painter Victor Caratini. Caratini was replaced by Heyward.
After Pedro Strop (4: 1) had defeated in the ninth round, the opposing team, Baez came with a goal against Adam Cimber (3-5) on an infield single to third base. Baez crashed in second, finishing third when Austin Hedges' attacker sailed into Center Field and drove home as Manuel Margot bobbed the ball.
Brandon Morrow scored 10th for his 21st rescue.
PIRATES 7, BROTHERS 3
PITTSBURGH (AP) – Josh Bell has made a career with four hits, Gregory Polanco has married and both drove in two runs to lead Pittsburgh via Milwaukee.
The fourth-placed pirates have won five of their last six. Second-placed Milwaukee lost four out of five and his lead has been reduced to half a game against the Chicago Cubs.
Nick Kingham (4-4) tied a career high with nine strikeouts and allowed three runs over 6 1/3 innings. Kyle Crick got four outs for his second save of the season.
Milwaukee starter Junior Guerra (6-6) scored six runs, nine strikes and two walks in four innings. He hit four.
TWINS 11, RAY 8
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Joe Mauer fired and powered in four races, Jake Cave had three hits and a pair of RBIs, and Robbie Grossman added three goals for Minnesota, who won eight of nine games on his home stand.
Trevor Hildenberger (2: 2) came in the seventh game on the side to win the winning goal by Jake Odorizzi.
Tampa Bay starter Nathan Eovaldi (3-4) gave up eight runs and nine hits with two walks in 2 2/3 innings. Rookie Jake Bauers hit a three-run homer for the Rays, who climbed within a run before the Twins retreated too late.
Eovaldi saw his ERA rise from 3.35 to 4.59 in his shortest seasonal outing.
GIANTS 7, ATHLETIC 1
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Buster Posey settled in the Goal run in the sixth inning and San Francisco slowed the swelling Oakland.
Madison Bumgarner (3-3) struck three goals in six innings, beating each other for the first time this season. Alen Hanson added two goals and Steven Duggar had two RBIs and scored two goals.
Oakland All-Star Second Baseman Jed Lowrie was forced out of the game with a left leg bruise after a collision with Stephen Piscotty, while both Hansons chased Fly Ball to short right field in the third. Lowrie's status for the All-Star game on Tuesday in Washington is uncertain. He was selected into the AL team as injury replacement for Gleyber Torres of the New York Yankees.
Neither team has played much offensively, and the Giants scored their first run on the other side by A & # 39; s starter Edwin Jackson (1-1) in the fourth round. The A had won 19 of 24, taking three out of four from AL West-leading Houston before falling to their rivals from across the San Francisco Bay.
RED 9, CARDINAL 1
ST. LOUIS (AP) – Scooters Gennett and Dilson Herrera heaved, Matt Harvey (5-5) threw five solid innings and Cincinnati beat St. Louis.
Jesse Winker reached the base four times and drove in three runs for the Reds, who took their second win in a row against St. Louis after breaking a 13-way losing streak against the Cardinals on 10 June.
Gennett scored his 17th Homer of the season against Carlos Martinez (6-5) in the third to push the lead to 3-1.
Herrera added a three-run, pinch-hit homer by Sam Tuivailala, to highlight a five-run breakout in the seventh.

ROCKIES 10, MARINER 7
DENVER (AP) – Trevor Story married and drove in four runs, Charlie Blackmon also joined and Tony Wolters had three RBIs for Colorado, which won their third straight.

Colorado law expert Jeff Hoffman was lined up for Antonio Senzatela, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a blister on the middle finger of his right hand. He allowed three runs on eight strokes in 3 1/3 innings and left after allowing an RBI individual Bergman, who made it 4-3.
