Ian Kinsler was 1-for-5 with a run scored as the LA Angels (28-22) crushed the host Toronto Blue Jays, 8-1. The sole hit was his seventh double of the year. Kevin Pillar was o-for-2 with a walk for the Jays (23-27) who have lost seven of their last nine games.
Neither Danny Valencia nor Richard Bleier appeared for the Baltimore Orioles (16-34) who beat the hist Chicago White Sox, 9-3, behind a complete game from Dylan Bundy.
Ryan Braun was back for the Milwaukee Brewers (31-20), batting third and playing left field as they were shut out by the visiting NY Mets, 5-0. Braun — just reinstated from the disabled list with back tightness — singled in his first at bat, his only hit in four at-bats.
Alex Bregman doubled (#17) and homered (#5), the latter good for three runs to give the Houston Astros (33-18) a 3-2 lead over the host Cleveland Indians in the fifth inning. He added an RBI double (#17) in the the eight to close out the scoring in an 8-2 Astros win.
Joc Pederson and the LA Dodgers had the day off as did Gabe Kapler‘s Philadelphia Phillies.
