Rookie Spencer Strider (23) pitched eight scoreless innings and set a team record with 16 strikeouts in a nine-inning game as the Atlanta Braves defeated the visiting Colorado Rockies, 3-0, on Sept. 1.

Strider (9-4) set the highest strikeout total by a Braves pitcher since the team moved to Atlanta, and on June 14, 1952, Boston Braves Hall of Famer Warren Span struck out 18 in 15 innings against the Chicago Cubs.

It was Strider's fifth game with 174 strikeouts in 114 2/3 innings. Strider went eight innings, setting a career high. He allowed two hits and did not strike out a batter. It was the 12th time in 17 starts that a right-hander has not scored more than one run.

The Braves hit two home runs for the second straight night. Austin Riley went deep for the second straight game, giving up 33 runs, and Michael Harris II hit his 14th, his first since Aug. 22, to provide most of the offense.

Red Sox 9, Rangers 8

Rob Refsnyder's single ended a four-run ninth inning that gave Boston the win over Texas.

Five Boston batters had multiple hits, including Alex Verdugo, who went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBIs. Christian Arroyo had two and three RBIs in a 4-2 night, while Rafael Devers doubled twice and drove in three runs to break up a 24-0 skid.

Marcus Semien went 3 for 5, Corey Seager, Nathaniel Lowe and Bubba Thompson all had two hits and Adolis Garcia homered for the Rangers.

Mets 5, Dodgers 3

Darin Ruf hit a steal of a seventh-inning sacrifice fly for host New York, which beat Los Angeles in the rubber match of a three-game series between the top two teams in the National League.

The Mets scored twice in the sixth and twice in the seventh to win the season series by a score of four to three. Chris Bassitt (12-7) pitched six innings of two-run ball for the win and Adam Ottavino worked a scoreless ninth for his third save.

The Dodgers lost back-to-back games for the first time since losing to the Washington Nationals July 25-26. Chris Martin (4-1) breathed a sigh of relief.

Mariners 7, Tigers 0

Logan Gilbert pitched six dominant innings, Julio Rodriguez and Ty Francis hit back-to-back home runs and Seattle beat host Detroit. France and Kurt Casali each scored twice as the Mariners completed a three-game series sweep.

Gilbert (11-5) ended a nine-game winless streak of starts while allowing the Tigers to get two hits and record nine strikeouts. He has not recorded a win since July 5.

Tigers' starter Eduardo Rodriguez (3-4) gave up six runs (five earned) and six hits in four innings of work. Detroit was shut out for the 18th time this season.

Rattlers 5, Brewers 0

Merrill Kelly pitched seven innings and Christian Walker hit a two-run homer to lead Arizona to a win over Milwaukee in Phoenix.

Josh Rojas added two doubles for the Rattlers, who won for the seventh time in their last nine games. Kelly (12-5) gave up four hits and struck out seven without issuing a walk. He improved to 6-0 with a 2.01 ERA in his last 12 games.

Jace Peterson had two hits for the Brewers, and Christian Yelich left after 3 1/2 innings due to neck discomfort. Brandon Woodruff (9-4) gave up five runs and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings.

White Sox 7, Royals 1

Andrew Vaughn's two-run homer broke a 1-1 tie and helped host Chicago defeat Kansas in the final game of a three-game series.

The White Sox won the series with the victory, but the Royals still won the season series, 10-9.

Johnny Cueto (7-6), who helped the Royals win the 2015 World Series, defeated his old team. He gave up one run on six hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Nationals 7, Athletics 5 (10 innings)

Joey Meneses capped a four-game winning streak with a three-run homer in the 10th inning to pull Washington past visiting Oakland, which scored twice in the top of the inning.

Keibert Ruiz pulled the Nationals to an RBI single in the 10th inning by a score of 5-4. With Lane Thomas gone, 30-year-old rookie Meneses got off to a rough start in the majors, going from Norge Ruiz (0-1) to right-center to give Washington the series win by a 2-2 score.

Oakland rookie Ken Waldichuk, 24, was a no-decision in his major league debut. Waldichuk ran into trouble in each of the first three innings but allowed just one run on five hits in 4 2/3 innings.

Orioles 3, Guardians 0

Cedric Mullins homered in the game's first at-bat and rookie Kyle Bradish allowed two hits in seven innings to fuel visiting Baltimore's win over Cleveland.

Bradish (3-5) strung together his second straight pound outing by striking out and walking three innings. The right-hander went eight innings on Friday in Houston. Cionel Perez and Felix Bautista each went an inning in the two-hitter set.

Anthony Santander also homered in the first inning, and Ryan Moncastle homered in the fourth inning for the Orioles. Guardians starter Shane Bieber (8-8) went seven innings, striking out 11 and allowing three home runs on six hits.
