Delmon Young homered for the second straight night and scored twice, while Domonic Brown and Freddy Galvis each drove in a run.

Garrett Jones drove in Andrew McCutchen in the first for the game's only run.

Jose Bautista had four hits, homering twice and driving in all of Toronto's runs as the Blue Jays beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 in 10 innings.

Bautista's ninth-inning solo shot, his second of the night, sent the game into extras, then he gave the Jays a walk-off win by singling in Colby Rasmus with two outs in the bottom of the 10th

Bryce Harper homered in the sixth and scored in the 10th as the Washington Nationals beat the San Francisco Giants 2-1.

Chris Davis crushed his American League-leading 14th homer as part of a four-hit night in the the Baltimore Orioles' 6-3 win over the New York Yankees.
