After losing seven straight games to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Arizona Diamondbacks appeared headed for eight in a row until they pulled off a pair of comebacks Monday night. Welington Castillo doubled home the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and Arizona erased a four-run deficit in a 10-6 victory over its NL West rival. Castillo doubled against reliever Pedro Baez (1-1) to drive in Jake Lamb with none out.
Josh Reddick and Ike Davis quickly helped the Oakland Athletics put a difficult weekend behind them. Reddick and Davis hit two-run homers in the first inning to back seven scoreless innings from Kendall Graveman, and the A's snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the Colorado Rockies 7-1 on Monday night. ''That was really big,'' Graveman said.
Mike Trout showed off practically every aspect of his MVP talent against the New York Yankees, from his early homer to his late stolen base with a couple of jaw-dropping catches in between. Trout and C.J. Cron homered, Albert Pujols and Kole Calhoun added run-scoring doubles, and the Angels beat the Yankees 4-1 Monday night for their fifth victory in seven games. Trout hit his 20th homer of the season in the third inning against CC Sabathia (3-8), crushing a drive to the base of the fake rock pile beyond center field.
Jonathan Lucroy and Ryan Braun seem to always have a good time when hitting at Citizens Bank Park. Lucroy had four of the Brewers' season high-tying 16 hits and drove in two runs and Braun added three hits and an RBI, leading Milwaukee to a 7-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night in a matchup of the two worst teams in baseball. ''That was kind of vintage Lucroy tonight,'' Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.
PHOENIX (AP) -- Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Mike Bolsinger left his start Monday night after four innings due to flu-like symptoms, the club announced during the game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
