Maeda helps Dodgers beat Reds
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 20 - 06 - 2017

Japanese pitcher Kenta Maeda (5-3) pitched five strong innings and drove in two runs, Logan Forsythe and Justin Turner homered, and Kike Hernandez made a spectacular game-saving catch to help Los Angeles Dodgers hold on to beat Cincinnati Reds 8-7 in Major League Baseball Sunday.
Cincinnati nearly rallied all the way back from an 8-1 deficit in the sixth inning. However, Hernandez went back to the left-field wall and made an awkward leaping grab of Joey Votto's attempt at a go-ahead extra-base hit with runners on first and third in the eighth.
Kenley Jansen got the last three outs for his 15th save.
Bronson Arroyo (3-6), who was roughed up for nine runs and a career-high 13 hits in his last start at San Diego, lasted only three innings against the Dodgers, giving up five runs and seven hits.
Rockies 7, Giants 5: Nolan Arenado hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving him the cycle and lifting the Colorado Rockies to a 7-5 win over the San Francisco Giants.
Arenado connected against Giants closer Mark Melancon (1-2) for the eighth cycle in franchise history and first since Michael Cuddyer in 2014. It was the Rockies' first walk-off homer of the season and second walk-off win, and it enabled the Rockies to sweep a four-game series from the Giants for the first time.
Indians 5, Twins 2: Edwin Encarnacion had three hits, including two home runs, and drove in each of Cleveland's five runs as the Indians left Minnesota with a win, a four-game series sweep and control of the American League Central.
Jose Ramirez had three hits for his sixth straight multi-hit game for Cleveland, and Trevor Bauer dazzled through his first six innings before the Twins pressured late.
Diamondbacks 5, Phillies 4 (10 innings): Rey Fuentes belted a tiebreaking homer to center in the top of the 10th inning to help lift Arizona to a win over Philadelphia. The Diamondbacks, completing a sweep of the Phillies (22-46), won their seventh straight. Trailing 4-3 entering the ninth, Arizona took advantage of Hector Neris, who had trouble locating his pitches. He walked Nick Ahmed to start the inning before giving up a single to David Peralta that allowed Ahmed to advance to third. Gregor Blanco followed Peralta with a single to score Ahmed and knot it at 4.
Mets 5, Nationals 1: Jacob deGrom tossed eight strong innings and hit his first major league homer as New York avoided being swept by Washington at Citi Field.
Cubs 7, Pirates 1: Anthony Rizzo stayed hot at the plate and John Lackey won for the first time in more than a month as Chicago downed Pittsburgh at PNC Park.
Orioles 8, Cardinals 5: Ubaldo Jimenez threw seven solid innings in his return to the starting rotation and Baltimore clubbed four home runs in a win over St. Louis.
Braves 5, Marlins 4: Brandon Phillips poked a single through a five-man infield in the ninth inning to produce a walk-off hit for the second straight game and lift Atlanta over Miami.
Rays 9, Tigers 1: Steven Souza Jr.'s first career grand slam highlighted a parade of five home runs to lead Tampa Bay to victory over Detroit.
Blue Jays 7, White Sox 3: Russell Martin and Kendrys Morales hit two-run homers, J.A. Happ pitched into the seventh inning and Toronto defeated Chicago.
Mariners 7, Rangers 3: Seattle jumped on Yu Darvish for four runs in the first inning on their way to a victory over Texas that snapped a three-game losing streak.
Royals 7, Angels 3: Mike Moustakas had a three-run double and Salvador Perez a three-run homer as Kansas City finished a 7-2 road trip with a rout of Los Angeles.
Brewers 2, Padres 1: Jimmy Nelson struck out 10 and finished a complete game for the first time in his career to lead Milwaukee over San Diego at Miller Park.
Athletics 4, Yankees 3: Oakland completed an unlikely four-game sweep of American League East-leading New York at a sweltering Oakland Coliseum.
Red Sox 6, Astros 5: Xander Bogaerts produced his first career multi-homer game and totaled four RBIs as the Boston Red Sox won the rubber match of their three-game set with the Houston Astros 6-5. — Agencies
