Davis' slam gives Tigers a win over A's
(DETROIT) - For the Detroit Tigers, a walk-off grand slam happens like clockwork. Once every 10 years, it's time to hit another one. On the day the franchise honored the 30th anniversary of the 1984 World Series team, Rajai Davis hit his third career grand slam with one out in the ninth, giving the Tigers a 5-4 victory over the Oakland A's. It was Detroit's first game-ending grand slam in almost exactly a decade. Carlos Pena hit one against Arizona on June 27, 2004. Coincidentally, that was the weekend the Tigers honored the 1984 team's 20th anniversary. Oakland closer Sean Doolittle (2-2) was given a three-run lead to work with in the ninth, but managed only one out. Nick Castellanos and Alex Avila started the inning with singles. Eugenio Suarez struck out, but Doolittle walked Austin Jackson before David deposited the slam into the left field seats. Detroit's rally took Anibal Sanchez off the hook; he now hasn't lost in his last 10 starts. Blaine Hardy (1-0) picked up his first career victory with a scoreless top of the ninth. Sanchez, who struck out his 1,000th career batter in the fourth, lost his shutout in the sixth on Lowrie's RBI single. Cabrera tied the game in the bottom of the inning, sending a 2-2 changeup into the Oakland bullpen beyond the left-center field fence.

Cubs shut out Boston 2-0 as Arrieta flirts with no-hitter
(BOSTON) – Jake Arrieta certainly picked two of baseball's most historic places to put on memorable performances. Arrieta held the Red Sox hitless until Stephen Drew singled with two outs in the eighth inning, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Boston Red Sox 2-0 on Monday night in the opener of only the second series between the teams at Fenway Park since 1918. Six days after losing a perfect game on a leadoff single in the seventh inning of his previous start at Wrigley Field against Cincinnati, Arrieta took his no-hit bid a little deeper at Fenway. He allowed only Mike Napoli's fifth-inning walk before Drew lined a sharp single to right. Starting the season on the disabled list with shoulder tightness, the 28 year old right-hander was pushing his pitch limit before Drew lined a 2-2 pitch. Arrieta (5-1) was lifted by Cubs manager Rick Renteria immediately following the hit that came on his career-high 120th pitch. He fanned 10 in just his 11th start of the season and was given a loud ovation before he even got to the foul line, tipping his cap to the Boston crowd. Hector Rondon allowed a pinch-hit single to A.J. Pierzynski leading off the ninth before finishing the two-hitter for his 10th save. Nate Schierholtz hit a two-run homer for Chicago.
