Tigers top Kansas City 8-2
(KANSAS CITY) – Rick Porcello is already in his sixth full season in the big leagues, which makes it all the easier to forget that the Tigers right-hander is still just 25 years old. Porcello dominated for seven innings as the Tigers beat the Kansas City Royals 8-2. Porcello (4-1) gave up a sacrifice fly to Eric Hosmer, a solo homer to Billy Butler and little else Friday night. He wound up allowing four hits while striking out six without a walk. Victor Martinez had a pair of doubles and drove in two runs, and J.D. Martinez and Alex Avila also drove in two runs apiece as the Tigers won their fourth straight against the Royals. And if that wasn't bad enough, the Royals also lost All-Star catcher Salvador Perez when he fouled a pitch off his shin in the seventh inning. He was listed as day to day with a bruise.

Cleveland tops Chicago 12-2
(CLEVELAND) - The Cleveland Indians were willing to try almost anything to end their losing streak. Cleveland pitchers Corey Kluber and Cody Allen dressed up like chickens during batting practice Friday while standing in the outfield in an attempt to help the team pull out of its six-game losing streak. The strategy apparently worked. Michael Brantley homered and drove in three runs, Carlos Santana also homered and the Indians finally broke loose for a 12-5 win over the Chicago White Sox. Cleveland's struggling offense, which scored 13 runs on a 0-6 road trip, had a five-run first inning and added four in the sixth. Danny Salazar (1-3) was charged with five runs in five innings and earned his first win of the season. Jose Abreu hit his major-league leading 11th homer in the fifth, but the White Sox couldn't overcome a shaky start by John Danks (2-2), who allowed eight runs in five innings. The Indians placed All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis on the 15 day disabled list prior to the game with a pulled muscle in his side.

Cubs edge Cardinals 6-5
(CHICAGO) – Anthony Rizzo wasted little time in getting to Adam Wainwright. Rizzo hit a two-run single in the first that ended Wainwright's scoreless streak at 25 innings, and the Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5 Friday for their third win in four games. Wainwright (5-2) had allowed six runs in 45 innings coming in, but the Cubs matched the runs total in just five innings against the St. Louis ace, who gave up 10 hits. His ERA rose from 1.20 to 2.16. Rizzo added a leadoff home run in the fifth that put Chicago ahead 6-3. Welington Castillo had three doubles for Chicago, which sent the skidding Cardinals to their 10th loss in 16 games. Travis Wood (2-3) gave up three runs and six hits in seven innings but allowed just one runner in his final three innings. Justin Grimm gave up Jhonny Peralta's two-run homer in the eighth, and Hector Rondon pitched a perfect ninth for his second save. Cubs center fielder Ryan Sweeney made a catch on the run in the eighth on a drive to right-center by Allen Craig. Sweeney injured his right hamstring and was replaced by Emilio Bonifacio, who moved from second.
