Ian Kinsler continued his hot hitting, going 3-for-4 with his 10th double and a run scored, but it didn’t prevent the LA Angels (30-27) from losing to the host Detroit Tigers, 6-2. Maybe he just had some extra incentive versus his old team: he had nine hits in 14 at-bats over the four-game series.
Alex Bregman was o-for-3 with a walk and a run scored as the Houston Astros (36-22) beat the visiting Boston Red Sox, 4-2.
Joc Pederson struck out twice in four at bats hitting out of the leadoff spot as the LA Dodgers (26-30) lost to Gabe Kapler‘s visiting Philadelphia Phillies (31-23), 2-1.
The game between the NY Yankees and host Baltimore Orioles (Danny Valencia, Richard Bleier) was postponed by rain. Valencia should be back from paternity leave for tonight’s contest.
Ryan Braun and the Milwaukee Brewers had the day off, as did Kevin Pillar and the Toronto Blue Jays.
