Astros walk off downs Tigers
(HOUSTON) - Even Jason Castro's game-winning hit couldn't overshadow Jose Altuve's all-around performance for the Astros on Friday night. Altuve had four hits, an RBI and two steals, including one of home, in Houston's 4-3 win in 11 innings over Detroit that snapped the Tigers' seven-game winning streak. Castro launched a pitch from Blaine Hardy (0-1) into the seats in right field with one out in the 11th to give Houston the victory. The Tigers tied it when Eugenio Suarez scored on an error in the eighth inning. Jake Buchanan (1-1) pitched a perfect 11th for his first major league win. Altuve had his MLB-leading 33rd multihit game of the season. He leads baseball with 111 hits and the AL with 32 stolen bases. Nick Castellanos had a solo homer to give the Tigers the lead in the fourth inning and Ian Kinsler had three hits for his sixth straight multi-hit game, a career-high. He's second to Altuve with 32 multi-hit games this season. It was the first trip to Houston as a manager for Detroit's Brad Ausmus, whose 10 seasons catching for the Astros included the franchise's only World Series appearance in 2005. It was another tough outing for Detroit's Justin Verlandr, who allowed six hits with three runs and eight strikeouts in six innings to remain winless since May 30.


Abreu's two homers lead Chicago past Toronto
(TORONTO) – Jose Abreu powered the Chicago White Sox to a vital win at the midpoint of the season, and moved more than halfway toward breaking a home run record. Abreu hit two solo homers, Alexei Ramirez added a two-run blast and the White Sox survived a shaky ninth inning to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-4 Friday night for their second win in nine games. Dayan Viciedo also went deep as the White Sox won for the second time in 12 road games and connected four times off Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. Abreu led off the fifth with his 24th home run, then connected for his 25th to begin the seventh. It was the fourth multihomer game of the season for Abreu, who is tied with Toronto's Edwin Encarnacion and Baltimore's Nelson Cruz for most homers in the majors. Abreu is the second player to have four multihomer games in his first 67 career games. The other was Atlanta's Bob Horner in 1978. Encarnacion also homered, going back to back with Dioner Navarro in the sixth, but that was all the Blue Jays would manager against John Danks, who won for the fourth time in five starts. Danks (7-6) came in 1-4 with a 6.46 ERA in six career starts against the Blue Jays, but was better in this one, allowing two runs and five hits in six innings. He walked none and struck out two.

Cubs beat Nationals 7-2
(CHICAGO) - The catcher had a career day and wanted to talk about his batterymate. The pitcher was pretty sharp himself and he wanted to talk about his catcher. And so it goes for the suddenly improving Chicago Cubs, who are developing some chemistry and winning games following another forgettable start to a season. John Baker had three hits, a walk and four RBIs in a 7-2 victory over Washington on Friday, while Jason Hammel continued his dominance of the Nationals, giving up two runs over 6 1/3 innings. Hammel (7-5) allowed five hits and one walk en route to his seventh victory in seven decisions against the Nationals in his career. Chicago won for the 21st time in 38 games amid speculation that Hammel and other veterans could be moved before the trade deadline. A .160 hitter at game time, Baker capped his big day with a bases-loaded, three-run double off reliever Jerry Blevins in the seventh inning. The four RBIs matched Baker's career high for one game and doubled his season total to eight. Chris Coghlan, Justin Ruggiano and Ryan Sweeney each had a pair of hits in the 13 hit attack.
