Cleveland rallies to beat Detroit 9-3
(DETROIT) – Jason Kipnis sprinted around the bases after hitting each of his two homers, forgetting how it felt to trot after hitting the ball well enough to clear the fences. Kipnis hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer and added a solo shot in the ninth to help the Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers 9-3 on Friday night. After Kipnis' tiebreaking homer, Asdrubal Cabrera sent the next pitch over the right-field fence to cap a seven-run seventh inning that helped Cleveland come back from a 3-0 deficit in the opener of a four-game series against the AL Central-leading Tigers. Detroit's Anibal Sanchez (6-4) retired the first seven batters he faced and had a 3-0 lead. He ended up giving up four runs, six hits, walking one and striking out seven in an uneven performance. The Tigers won 17 of 23 games going into the All-Star break. Cleveland has won seven of its last 10 games to move a game over .500, pulling into a second-place tie with Kansas City, trailing the Tigers by 6 1/2 games. Detroit scored on Ian Kinsler's sacrifice fly, and RBI double from Torii Hunter, and then Hunter scoring on a throwing error.


White Sox beat Astros 3-2
(CHICAGO) – No Chicago White Sox were more maligned than catcher Tyler Flowers and the team's bullpen in the early months of the season. So when they flipped the script Friday night, they could only hope it was the sign of better things to come. Flowers, who entered with a .218 batting average, drove in the go-ahead run with a seventh-inning double, and four pitchers combined to retire the final 22 batters in the White Sox's 3-2 victory over the Houston Astros. Alejandro De Aza singled off Scott Feldman and stole second before Flowers delivered the game-winning hit. He entered the game with only 12 hits in his last 116 at-bats. Daniel Webb (5-2) retired six consecutive batters in relief of Jose Quintana to earn the victory. Ronald Belisario and Zach Putnam pitched a scoreless inning apiece, and Putnam earned his second save. Feldman (4-7) took a four-hit shutout into the sixth inning, when Dayan Viciedo hit a two-run homer into the left-center field bleachers to tie it. Feldman allowed three runs, seven hits and three walks in seven innings.

Arizona beats Chicago 5-4
(PHOENIX) – Martin Prado joked that he had better be careful or he'll get a reputation as a hothead. The Arizona third baseman was ejected for the first time in his 933 big league games in the Diamondbacks' 5-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday night. Prado was thrown out when he said something as he ran past plate umpire Cory Blaser after grounding out in the eighth. He had to be restrained by teammates after he was tossed. Manager Kirk Gibson was also tossed after he came out to argue following Prado's ejection. Paul Goldschmidt homered and Did Gregorius had a pair of RBI singles for Arizona. Anthony Rizzo homered twice for the Cubs with a two-run homer over the swimming pool area in right field in Chicago's three-run fourth. He added a booming solo shot to center in the sixth. Rizzo moved into a tie with Miami's Giancarlo Stanton for the NL home run lead at 22 with his sixth career multi-homer game, and second this season. Eury De La Rosa (1-0) gave up a run in one inning and got the win. Brian Schlitter (2-3) allowed a run in two-thirds of an inning for the loss. Catcher Miguel Montero's throwing error put a runner on third with one out in the ninth, but Addison Reed got out of it, getting Ryan Sweeney to pop out and fanning Welington Castillo for his 22nd save in 27 chances.
