Shohei Otani hit a triple in the sixth inning to propel the Los Angeles Angels to a 3-2 win over the New York Yankees in Anaheim on Wednesday night.

It was Otani's 30th homer of the season, making him the first player in major league history to hit at least 30 homers and win at least 10 games as a pitcher. (Otani has 11 wins on the mound).

Angels starter Patrick Sandoval (5-9) had just two runs with three hits and two walks in seven innings. He also had seven strikeouts while throwing 82 pitches. Jose Quijada (eighth inning) and Jimmy Herget (ninth inning, fifth save) each pitched a scoreless inning to end the game.

Kerr (10-7) had six hits and one walk in seven innings for a three-run (two-run ERA). He struck out four times, the lowest total of his 15 starts. Yankees slugger Aaron Judge had two hits and two walks.

Cardinals 5, Reds 3 (13 innings)

Albert Pujols blew the sacrifice ball to center to give Paul Goldschmidt the lead, while Lars Notrebar hit a two-run homer after two runs to give the visiting St. Louis defeated Cincinnati in 13 innings.

Despite a 0-17 runner in scoring position, the Cardinals caught up with the second-best August in their history, finishing the month 22-7.

Chase Anderson (0-2), who made his first start as a Redskins starter in Monday's series opener, was again the victim of a tape measure. Nootbaar's bomb landed on top of the Cardinals' right bullpen, giving St. Louis a 5-2 lead.

Phillies 18, Diamonds 2

Brandon Marsh hit three of his three and three hits as Philly set the season's batting average and field goal percentage in Phoenix. The highest record, but also crushed Arizona.

Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins also hit three each, with the Phillies hitting 22 while avoiding a sweep in the three-game series. Philadelphia's Bailey Falter (3-3) had one run and five hits in 6/3 innings.

Jake McCarthy hit a home run for the second straight game for the Diamonds, who scored the most points in the campaign, while snapping a season-best five-game winning streak.

Orioles 4, Guardians 0

Gunner Henderson hit his first major league hit, and Baltimore's three pitchers combined for five hits to knock out Cleveland's home game.

Ramon Urias hit a two-run homer and had a three-run RBI for Baltimore to end a two-game slump. Henderson, who was recalled from the Norfolk Triple before the game, fouled in the second inning before hitting right midfield with a 429-foot homer in the fourth against Triston- McKinsey (9-11).

Jordan Lyles (10-9) had 4 hits, 3 walks and 2 strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings. Cionel Perez pitched a 1/3 inning, then Felix Bautista knocked out the Guardians in turn in the ninth.

Warriors 3, Rockies 2

Kyle Wright pitched seven innings for his major league-leading 17th win as Atlanta overcame visiting Colorado.

The win, driven by home runs from Austin Riley and Ronald Acuna Jr., ended Atlanta's three-game losing streak. The Warriors are still three games behind the New York Mets in the National League East.

Wright (17-5) allowed five hits and two walks while striking out. A.J. Minter went scoreless in the eighth, then Kenley Jansen gave Randal Grichuk a two-out walk and gave rookie Michael Toglia a two-run homer for the first of his career. Janssen finished the game with his 30th save.

Astros 5, Rangers 3

Jose Altuve had two hits, two walks, two RBIs and two runs for Houston's victory in Arlington, Texas.

David Hensley, who was slow to join the lineup as the designated hitter after Chas McCormick was caught with a sore finger, had 3-4, a walk and a run for Houston. The Astros have won three straight, winning seven of nine games.

Corey Seager hit a two-run homer for the Rangers, who have lost four straight, five of seven. Texas starter Martin Perez (10-5) had five runs and nine hits in five innings.

Thunder 2, Marin 1

Manuel Margot hit an RBI single with two outs in the 10th inning to lead Tampa Bay to a win over host Miami.

Margot also saved a run in the second half of the 10th, making a brilliant catch when he hit the center field fence. Former Marlins outfielder Harold Ramirez led the Thunder to a 3-5 record with an RBI double.

Jon Betty led the Marlins to a 2-4 record with a single homer, a single and a stolen base. Marlins starter Trevor Rodgers returned from a back injury with a no-decision in his first pitch since July 25. Rodgers had 5 hits, 1 walk and 1 run, and 5 strikeouts in 6 innings.

Mets 2, Dodgers 1 (10 innings)

Center fielder Brandon Nimmo stole a homer from Justin Turner in the seventh inning to keep the lead for Jacob deGrom, who pitched seven strong innings as hosts New York edged out Los Angeles.

Starling Marte hit two homers in the third inning from Tyler Anderson (13-3) to give the Mets the full offense, who split the first two games of their three-game series against their compatriots.

The loss was just the sixth in 28 games this month for the Dodgers. Anderson allowed two runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out three over seven innings.

Padres 5, Giants 4

San Diego posted a third consecutive win at San Francisco, riding Manny Machado's three RBIs and Joe Musgrove's 11 strikeouts to a series sweep.

Brandon Drury and Wil Myers combined for four hits and two runs in a nine-hit Padres attack, and Josh Hader came out of the doghouse to pitch a scoreless ninth, closing the door on San Diego's fifth win in six games.

The loss was the Giants' seventh in a row. They fell 10 1/2 games behind the Padres in the wild-card chase with just 33 games remaining. San Francisco's Alex Wood (8-12) gave up four runs and five hits in 4 2/3 innings.

Mariners 5, Tigers 3

Eugenio Suarez and Abraham Toro hit two-run home runs as visiting Seattle edged Detroit.

Suarez and Toro contributed two hits apiece as Seattle won for the fifth time in six games. Mariners starter Marco Gonzales (10-12) gave up three runs and seven hits in six innings. He walked one and fanned one.

Jeimer Candelario drove in two runs for the Tigers, while Riley Greene reached base three times. Greene extended his hitting streak to nine games with a fifth-inning infield single.

Brewers 6, Pirates 1

Freddy Peralta allowed one run over five innings and Milwaukee took advantage of some shoddy defense and nine walks from Pittsburgh pitchers to beat the visiting Pirates.

Keston Hiura and Luis Urias each had two hits with an RBI for the Brewers, who won two of three in the series. Fighting for a fifth consecutive postseason appearance, Milwaukee has won four of five following an 8-15 rut.

Ben Gamel homered and Kevin Newman had two hits for the Pirates, who dropped 19 of their final 25 games in August.

Nationals 5, Athletics 1

Anibal Sanchez pitched seven innings of three-hit ball to secure his first victory in nearly two years as Washington beat visiting Oakland.

Sanchez (1-5) allowed one run while striking out four and walking three. Luke Voit homered and CJ Abrams scored two runs for the Nationals, who won for just the third time in a nine-game span.

Washington's Kyle Finnegan gave up two hits, including Seth Brown's pinch-hit double, and a walk without allowing a run in the ninth because he struck out pinch hitter Stephen Vogt to end the game with the bases loaded.

Cubs 7, Blue Jays 5

Franmil Reyes hit a solo home run, Nico Hoerner had a two-run double and visiting Chicago defeated Toronto.

The Cubs avoided a sweep of the three-game series, and the Blue Jays finished a 2-4 homestand. Chicago opener Luke Farrell allowed two runs and two hits with two strikeouts in two-plus innings.

Alejandro Kirk hit a three-run homer for Toronto, and Cavan Biggio added a two-run blast. Blue Jays right-hander Mitch White (1-5) allowed six runs on eight hits in 4 2/3 innings.

Red Sox 6, Twins 5

Xander Bogaerts hit a grand slam and drove in five runs and J.D. Martinez also homered as Boston jumped out to a five-run lead and then held on for a victory over Minnesota in Minneapolis.

Bogaerts also doubled and stole a base while extended his hitting streak at Target Field to 18 games, the longest for an opposing player in the stadium's history. It also was his sixth multi-hit game in his past seven games.

Luis Arraez homered and drove in three runs, Nick Gordon had two doubles and two RBIs and Gio Urshela and Max Kepler each added two hits for Minnesota, which had its five-game winning streak end.

White Sox 4, Royals 2

Lance Lynn pitched seven solid innings and AJ Pollock and Elvis Andrus launched solo home runs to help Chicago stop a five-game skid by beating visiting Kansas City.

Lynn (4-5) yielded just one run on four hits, logging eight strikeouts without walking a batter. Liam Hendriks notched his 29th save in 33 chances for the White Sox, who are without manager Tony La Russa indefinitely for medical testing.

The Royals' Bobby Witt Jr. hit his 19th home run, matching Salvador Perez for the team high. Kris Bubic fell to 2-10 despite registering a quality start, scattering two runs on five hits in six innings.Sh
