Mike Trout is soaked after hitting for the cycle
Mike Trout hit for the cycle and Jerome Williams pitched eight scoreless innings as the Los Angeles Angels cruised to a 12-0 win over the Seattle Mariners.
Trout, who drove in five and scored twice, singled in the third, tripled in the fourth doubled in the sixth and homered in the eighth off Seattle reliever Lucas Luetge to complete the sixth cycle in Angels history.
Trout's big day, which got off to an unpromising start when he struck out in the first, overshadowed a stellar outing from Williams, who scattered six hits, striking out six and walking two for his third win of the year.
Nate McLouth homered to lead off the bottom of the 10th, giving the Baltimore Orioles a 3-2 walk-off win over the New York Yankees.
Chris Dickerson went yard twice for the Orioles, who used three solo shots to snap their losing streak at six games. Travis Hafner drove in both the Yankees' runs.
Jose Quintana pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings as the Chicago White Sox beat the Boston Red Sox 3-1, while Max Scherzer hurled eight stellar innings, including a run of retiring 22 straight batters after giving up a first-inning run, to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 5-1 win over the Cleveland Indians.
Travis Snider pinch hit a grand slam as the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied for a 5-4 win over the Chicago Cubs, while rookie Dan Straily pitched seven scoreless innings and Yoenis Cespedes homered as the Oakland Athletics beat the Texas Rangers 1-0.
The Atlanta Braves claimed their fifth straight win, walking off on Freddie Freeman's RBI bloop single in the 10th for a 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Evan Gattis had homered in the ninth to send the game into extras.
The Colorado Rockies also claimed a 10-inning 5-4 walk-off win as Wilin Rosario's RBI single killed off the Arizona Diamondbacks, while Mike Leake tossed seven shutout frames and Devin Mesoraco homered to help the Cincinnati Reds beat the New York Mets 4-0.
Daniel Descalso crushed a grand slam in the eighth as the St Louis Cardinals beat the San Diego Padres 10-2, while Kelly Johnson and Desmond Jennings both went yard in the Tampa Bay Rays' 4-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays and the Philadelphia Phillies were 7-3 winners over the Miami Marlins.
The Kansas City Royals claimed their first win in five, beating the Houston Astros 7-3, the Milwaukee Brewers overcame the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-2, while the San Francisco Giants edged out the Washington Nationals 4-2 in the 10th inning.
