Right-hander Dylan Seth (26) threw a bat and trailed, and Elvis (34) launched a 13-0 win over the Minnesota Twins host Chicago White Sox on Saturday. Grand Slam night.

The suspension narrowly missed the 21st no-hitter in club history, leaving American League batting leader Luis Arares with two outs in the ninth. Also the major league leader in walking, Cease (13-6) gave Jake Cave a free pass in the third inning and Gilberto Celestino , in addition to seven hits.

The White Sox scored four points in the first inning against Twins starter Taylor Mahler, three of which were a home run by Eloy Jimenez in right midfield. White Sox rookie Romy Gonzalez hit a 3-run homer in the fourth quarter, his first in a major.

Mahler recovered six of the next seven batters to end a brief night. Mahler (6-8), who made his debut with an inflamed right shoulder, threw 37 out of 37 in two innings. He left the game after aggravating the injury.

Giants 5, Phillies 4

Joc Pederson continued his RBI rampage with three more games and San Francisco's two-game win over Philadelphia.

After two lead changes and four ties, Pederson drew a two-two from Brad Hand (3-2) when he led 5-4 in the sixth. With a walk of base hits, the Giants scored what proved to be extraordinary.

Bryson Stout and Jean Segura had a big game for the Phillies. Stott had a homer, two singles and a 3, while Segura chipped in two doubles, a single and two RBIs.

Red Sox 5, Rangers 3

Brayan Bello pitched six innings, Rafael Devers drove in two, and Boston went on to beat visiting Texas.

Bello (1-4) allowed just three hits and a walk while striking out five on the way to his first major league win of his career, leading Boston to its fourth straight win.

Devers, Xander Bogaerts and Trevor Story all went 2 for 4. Bogaerts scored twice while Story hit 20 doubles this season. Devers hit two points in the first inning to ignite Boston's offense, making his seventh straight appearance since breaking a career-long 24-goal 0-slide Thursday.

Rays 2, Yankees 1

Corey Kluber pitched seven good innings as hosts Tampa Bay won in four games in the American League East's victory over New York.

The Rays won for the fifth time in a row and were the closest team to the lead since May 11. Tampa Bay has improved to 16-4 since Aug. 13. Jandy Diaz replaced starter Clarke Schmidt (5-4) in New York as the Rays beat the Yankees for the fourth time in their past five meetings. New York is 1-6 in its past seven games.

Aaron Judge hit a league-leading 52nd homer in the ninth, tying a career high since his rookie season in 2017. Schmidt allowed two runs on four hits in 4 1/3 innings. He called two, but none left.

Royals 12, Tigers 2

Four Kansas City players hit home runs in Detroit's victory.

MJ Melendez went 2 for 4 with a homer and two RBIs for Kansas City. Nick Prato hit 2-for-4 home runs, Bobby Witt Jr. hit a 3-run home run, Kyle Isbell hit a grand slam, Nick Eaton hit 4-for-5 with two RBIs to lead the Royals' 15- Hit attack.

Jonathan Heasley (3-7) pitched seven innings to win, allowing two runs and eight hits.

Nationals 7, Mets 1

Luis Garcia hit four, including a homer, while Lane Thomas homered on his three-hit night to lead Washington over host New York.

Patrick Corbyn led the loss in the majors in one of his best games of the season. The southpaw (6-17) allowed just three hits, five strikeouts and one walk in seven innings before being saved by Carl Edwards Jr. in the bottom of the eighth.

Mets starter Max Scherzer did not consider the decision after allowing three hits and five strikeouts and a five-inning walk before being cleared by Tommy Hunt. Scherzer is looking to join Justin Verlander (242 wins) and Zack Greinke (223) as the only active pitchers with at least 200 wins.

Blue Jays 4, Buccaneers 1

Bobby Chet hit a tiebreaker 3 in the seventh inning to help Toronto beat Pittsburgh.

The Blue Jays have won 11 of 16 games in the race for the American League's final playoff berth. Toronto had a bullpen game with Trevor Richards opening. He pitched two scoreless innings, missed a hit and struck out. Yimi Garcia (4-4) pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings, and Jordan Romano made the ninth with his 29th save.

O'Neal Cruz hit a 3-pointer for the Buccaneers, who have lost three straight and are 17-of-21 from the field. Pittsburgh starter Roan Sea Contreras allowed a single and four hits, five strikeouts and two walks in six innings, while Duane Underwood Jr. (1-4) took the loss.

Cardinals 8, Cubs 4

Yadier Molina hit a three-run double and Paul Goldschmidt laced a two-run homer as St. Louis rallied past visiting Chicago.

Tommy Edman and Tyler O'Neill hit solo homers for the National League Central-leading Cardinals, who won for the sixth time in seven games. They improved to 44-22 at home and 37-20 within their division.

Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright (10-9) allowed four runs on nine hits and two walks in five innings. Wainwright and Molina made their 323rd career start as battery mates, one behind Bill Freehan and Mickey Lolich of the Detroit Tigers for most in baseball history.

Orioles 8, Athletics 1

Ryan Mountcastle hit a pair of two-run homers and Baltimore defeated visiting Oakland for its fourth straight win.

Cedric Mullins, Anthony Santander and Adley Rutschman also went deep as the Orioles matched their season high with five home runs.

Baltimore starter Austin Voth was lifted after 70 pitches with the bases loaded and one out in the fourth, and Keegan Akin (3-1) worked two scoreless innings for the win.

Mariners 4, Guardians 0

Robbie Ray threw six shutout innings to help visiting Seattle to a win over Cleveland.

Ray (12-8) allowed six hits, struck out three and didn't walk a batter in the middle game of the three-game series. It was the reigning AL Cy Young winner's second consecutive appearance against the Guardians, having blanked them on three hits over seven innings in a 4-0 win on Aug. 28.

Ty France homered for the Mariners, who have won six in a row to tighten their grip on an AL wild-card spot. Steven Kwan and Owen Miller had two hits each for the Guardians, who have combined for one run while losing their past four games but remain a game ahead of the Minnesota Twins for first place in the AL Central.

Braves 2, Marlins 1

Robbie Grossman drew a walk-off walk and Austin Riley homered for his fourth straight game, leading Atlanta past visiting Miami.

Working against reliever Steven Okert (5-2) in the ninth inning, Matt Olson singled and reached third on Michael Harris II's one-out double. After Vaughn Grissom was intentionally walked and Travis d'Arnaud lined out, Grossman took a 3-1 pitch low.

Miami's Edward Cabrera allowed just four hits and one run while striking out seven batters in five innings. However, he walked three batters, driving up his pitch count (98) and forcing his early exit.

Dodgers 12, Padres 1

Mookie Betts set his career high for home runs in a season and Julio Urias went six strong innings as Los Angeles earned a victory over visiting San Diego to end a three-game losing streak.

Trea Turner, Justin Turner and Will Smith also hit home runs as the Dodgers improved to 24-8 since July 31 despite their recent skid.

Manny Machado hit a home run for the Padres, while starter Sean Manaea (7-8) was roughed up for eight runs on nine hits and three home runs over 4 1/3 innings. San Diego saw its four-game winning streak come to an end.

Brewers 8, Diamondbacks 6 (10 innings)

Tyrone Taylor hit a pair of homers -- including a two-run blast in the top of the 10th inning -- as Milwaukee rallied to beat host Arizona.

After dropping the first two games of the four-game set, Milwaukee trailed 6-5 with one out in the ninth inning before pinch hitter Rowdy Tellez deposited a solo homer into the center field seats against Ian Kennedy.

Taylor had three hits and scored three runs, and he capped the comeback with his leadoff homer in the 10th against Joe Mantiply (2-5), scoring automatic runner Esteury Ruiz. Devin Williams (6-3) pitched a scoreless ninth inning for the win, and Taylor Rogers picked up his 30th save.

Angels 2, Astros 1 (12 innings)

Matt Duffy's two-out single in the bottom of the 12th inning drove home Taylor Ward from second base to lift Los Angeles over Houston in Anaheim, Calif.

Duffy hit a full-count pitch from Astros reliever Seth Martinez into shallow right-center, where center fielder Mauricio Dubon made a diving attempt to catch the ball. A replay review confirmed that Dubon short-hopped the ball, giving the Angels the win.

Angels reliever Ryan Tepera (3-2) pitched a scoreless 12th inning to get the victory over Will Smith (0-2). Tepera and the Angels escaped a jam in the top of the 12th. The Astros had runners on the corners with no outs when they hit into a double play, but the runner was unable to score from third, and the next batter was retired to end the threat.
