Blue Jays 3, Orioles 2: Richard Urena singled home the winning run in the ninth inning and Toronto rallied to beat Baltimore, handing the slumping Orioles their sixth straight loss.
The Cardinals' longest homestands of the 2018 season consist of seven games (six times).
Ironically, the humiliating milestone comes at the site of where they peaked two years ago.
In the process, the Cubs snapped their brief three game losing streak that saw their division lead shrink to just two games after a weekend sweep at the hands of the Brewers.
And the Mets had gone in a downward spiral.
Now, he's trying to prove he can start in the big leagues. He allowed four runs on five hits. In the seventh Happ crushed his 22nd home run to give Chicago a five run lead. The righthander pitched recklessly all night and got burned, hanging a changeup to Bryant in the fourth inning that he crushed into left field.
The Cubs looked as if they would settle for a small-ball reply in the bottom of the inning, but Bryant's three-run shot put them ahead 4-1 after Chicago first tied it 1-all on the squeeze by Quintana. "It happened to be a home run".
He threw 24 pitches in the first inning and walked two, yet got bailed out by a base-running lapse. The team's 5.52 ERA on the month is fifth worst in the league, only surpassed by (again) the Dodgers, Giants, Braves and Mets, the latter of which they are preparing to do battle with in what could be a slugfest of epic proportions - if, you know, their offense was doing anything that could be considered inspirational in the least. Travis Taijeron, Travis d'Arnaud and Nori Aoki each had an RBI. Bryant had last homered August 31 - a two-run shot that produced his previous two RBIs.
Kyle Schwarber singled, doubled, walked and scored two runs. Every fan base has issues with the lineup construction and the bullpen decisions and all beat writers get exhausted of listening to the manager's talking points.
