MLB: summary of games in the American including that between the Yankees and the Indians

Rougned Odor’s two-run single late in the seventh inning shattered a tie, and saw the New York Yankees win 6-3 over the Cleveland Indians in the first of a four-game series between the two clubs.

Odor had a poor batting average of .107 (3 for 28) before facing reliever Nick Wittgren (0-1). His hit in the midfield allowed Aaron Judge and Gleyber Torres to come and score to bring the score 5 to 3.

It was only the Yankees’ second victory in their last eight games.

Kyle Higashioka hit the long shot for New York, who began this meeting with their worst record at this point in the season since 1991.

Domingo German (1-2) got his first win of the season despite a poor start in which he put Cleveland up to a 3-0 lead in his first round at the plate.

Aroldis Chapman recorded the game’s last three strikeouts to earn his third save of the season.

The Indians, who lost to the Yankees last season in the draft round, have lost four of their last five games.

They escaped this one as their manager Terry Francona celebrated his 62nd birthday.

Trout quits after being hit

The Houston Astros have disposed of the Los Angeles Angels 8-2, but they are more concerned about the health of star player Mike Trout.

The outfielder left the game shortly after being hit in the elbow by a pitch. In the fourth inning, Trout received the fastball at 93 mph from Cristian Javier on the left elbow.

He was replaced by Scott Schebler for the fifth round.

On the board, Alex Bregman stood out with three RBIs for the Astros. Albert Pujols hit his third long ball of the season to produce his team’s two runs in the sixth inning.

Astros manager Dusty Baker recorded the 1,900th victory of his career at the helm of a team.

Red Sox see Mariners spinning

Mitch Haniger hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning and the Seattle Mariners came in from behind to beat the Boston Red Sox 7-3.

Sam Haggerty gave the Mariners a 4-3 lead with a double-sided Darwinzon Hernandez (0-1) in the 10th inning. It was Seattle’s first hit since Ty France’s two-point double in fifth.

Haniger, who had walked twice during the game, came to the plate a little later in the 10th and he catapulted a shot over the fence to center-right field.

Haggerty hit a double just at bat, arriving as a backup hitter in the eighth inning. He came to score after a bad stint from the Red Sox.

Rafael Devers slammed a long ball for the Red Sox, who were playing well behind starter Nick Pivetta but were unable to keep up 2-0, 3-2 leads.

Kiké Hernandez started the seventh inning with a triple at the expense of Mariners reliever Casey Sadler. Sadler made a poor pitch that slipped through receiver Luis Torrens and gave Alex Verdugo a 3-2 lead for the Red Sox.

The Mariners tied the game in the eighth inning after a poor throw from reliever Adam Ottavino, who grabbed the bunt from JP Crawford before throwing the ball badly to third pad.

Pivetta only allowed one rider to hit the trails before struggling in the sixth round. He walked twice after two strikeouts.

Justin Dunn allowed two runs, six hits and a walk in five innings for the Mariners. He spent five opponents in the mitten.

Mariners reliever Rafael Montero (2-0) added the victory to his record with a ninth scoreless inning.
