Ian Kinsler was a triple shy of a cycle as he helped the LA Angels (52-52) beat the visiting Chicago White Sox, 12-8. He drove in two runs, scored three, and walked. The home run was #14 and broke a 2-2 tie in the fourth. The double was his 19th of the year.
Danny Valencia was 2-for-3 with a walk as the Baltimore Orioles (28-74) dropped a 4-3 decision to the visiting Tampa Bay Rays.
Joc Pederson was 2-for-5 with his 21st double, a run scored, and an RBI as the LA Dodgers (57-46) beat the host Atlanta Braves, 8-2.
Ryan Braun‘s pinch-hot single drove in the run that gave the Milwaukee Brewers (59-46) a 3-2 lead over the host San Francisco Giants in the eighth inning. The Brewers went on to win, 7-5. Braun remained in the game in left and was hitless in a subsequent at-bat.
Gabe Kapler‘s Philadelphia Phillies (58-44) beat the host Cincinnati Reds, 9-4.
No game for Alex Bregman and the Houston Astros (67-37). Bregman was the subject of a segment on Thursday’s Pardon the Interruption which highlighted his reaction to being called out when a fan interfered with his fly ball in Wednesday’s 3-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies. After the game, Bregman went into a profanity-laced tirade against the review officials.
