Scherzer outduals Greinke as Tigers beat Dodgers
(DETROIT) - When Max Scherzer is on the mound, the Detroit Tigers have a chance to win pretty much any game, even without their top two sluggers. Scherzer pitched seven impressive innings, outdueling Zack Greinke and helping the short-handed Tigers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1 on Wednesday. Detroit was without Miguel Cabrera, who was given the day off and Victor Martinez, who is dealing with a lingering back issue. The AL Central-leading Tigers scored two runs in the first inning against Greinke, and Scherzer (11-3) made the lead hold up. The All-Star right-hander allowed a run and four hits. He struck out seven and walked two. Joba Chamberlain struck out two in the eighth, and Joe Nathan struck two in a perfect ninth for his 18th save in 23 chances. Greinke (11-5) allowed three runs and seven hits in seven innings. He struck out eight without a walk. But the Dodgers couldn't overcome Scherzer. They put men on first and second in the third, but Puig hit into a double play. In the sixth, Puig hit a leadoff double, but the next three batters couldn't hit the ball out of the infield.

Boston tops Chicago 5-4
(BOSTON) - The Boston Red Sox weren't getting much done this season. That's why the defending World Series champions turned to their youth. With five rookies in the starting lineup, the last-place Red Sox chased Chicago ace Chris Sale and rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the White Sox 5-4 on Wednesday night. The victory snapped Boston's four-game losing streak. Sale had allowed just four hits when he left the game with two outs in the eighth inning and a 4-0 lead. But Jake Petricka faced four batters and couldn't get an out, and by the time Javy Guerra (0-1) retired Mike Carp to end the eighth it was 4-3. With one out in the ninth, Guerra hit Mookie Betts and then gave up a double to pinch-hitter Daniel Nava. Brock Holt, another rookie, singled for the first walk-off hit of his career. The win was just the second for Boston in its last nine games. Jose Abreu and Conor Gillaspie homered to help stake Chicago, which had won three straight, to a 4-0 lead. Abreau's homer was his 28th of the season. Only Mark McGwire, who had 33 homers at the 1987 All-Star break, hit more in the first half of his rookie season.

Reds top Cubs 4-1
(CINCINNATI) – Alfredo Simon leads the National League in wins. He's still hoping to be added to the All-Star team. Simon became the NL's first 12-game winner and Billy Hamilton added to his sensational series with a tiebreaking triple Wednesday night, sending the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-1 victory over the trade-depleted Chicago Cubs. The Reds won their fifth in a row, matching their season high, and moved a season-best seven games over .500. After winning the first four games of the series, they'll try for their first five-game sweep since 1976 on Thursday. Simon (12-3), left off the NL All-Star roster Sunday, became the first Reds pitcher to win a dozen games before the break since Edison Volquez also went 12-3 in the first half of 2008. The reliever-turner-starter gave up four hits in 6 2/3 innings, including Anthony Rizzo's third homer in four games. Hamilton tripled home a run and scored during a three-run fifth against Dallas Beeler (0-2), who has lost his first two starts in the majors. Cubs manager Rick Renteria was ejected during the inning for arguing a foul ball call with third base umpire Andy Fletcher. It's been a tough week for the Cubs, who have lost all six games, their deepest slump of the season, since they dealt starters Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland for a package of prospects. Beeler and several others will get a chance to move up from the minors and fill their spots. The 25 year old pitcher gave up four runs, six hits and four walks in five innings.
