  • Javier Baez does more Javier Baez things in Cubs' blowout win over Rockies

Bryant's seventh HBP of the season came in the top of the first Sunday, with two outs and no one on against Rockies' starter German Marquez, and brought a very scary moment.

Javier Baez went 2-for-6 with a solo home run and two-run double to help the Cubs outlast the Rockies 9-7 on Sunday.

The ball bounced to the third-base side of the plate, Contreras grabbed it after a rebound off the low, brick wall and threw a flawless strike to Morrow, who tagged Arenado on the right ankle as Arenado's foot crossed the plate. The ball made a loud sound as it hit off the underside of the flap of Bryant's helmet. Baez hit a no-doubter to the deepest part of the park in the second inning, and he later tacked on a two-RBI double in the seventh to extend the Cubs' lead.

The Rockies were gifted their initial two runs of the afternoon in the third inning. Yacksel Rios (3-0) pitched a scoreless inning, stranding two runners.

RAYS 8, TWINS 6 - Carlos Gomez, in a 2-for-38 slide, hit a two-run homer off Addison Reed (0-1) in the ninth.

Dunn allowed a leadoff walk to Schwarber who advanced to second base on a single hit by Heyward. St. Louis has won eight of nine overall and 11 in a row over the Reds. It still has the best record in the majors, 17-4. Philadelphia swept a four-game series against Pittsburgh for the first time since May 12-15, 1994.

ASTROS 7, WHITE SOX 1: Jose Altuve hit a go-ahead single in a five-run seventh inning, and Houston stretched its winning streak to six. Also, outfielder Gerardo Parra began to serve his four-game suspension for his involvement in the benches-clearing brawl against the San Diego Padres earlier in the season and this certainly threw a wrench into how Colorado built their line up.
