MLB summary of the American League, June 23, 2021: A home run and 4 PPs from Abraham Toro


Four Houston Astros players hit home runs in a 13-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday.

The Astros have extended their winning streak to 10. This is their longest streak since May 2019, two units from the organization record.

They outscored the Orioles 26-3 in that three-game sweep.

Quebecer Abraham Toro hit a 417-foot homerun in the seventh inning at the expense of Mickey Jannis to make it 11-0. He added a single and produced a total of 4 points.

José Altuve had a two-run homerun that went 4-0 in the fourth inning, then Yordan Alvarez and Chas McCormick also hit a long ball.

José Urquidy (6-3) allowed just three hits in seven innings of work. The right-hander struck out six batters, walked one base and allowed a single batter to pass second base.

He’s won in six of his last seven outings and pitched seven innings in his last seven starts.

The Orioles have lost 13 of their last 14 games.

They’ll look to end their 19-straight road loss when they face the Toronto Blue Jays in Buffalo on Thursday.

Schoop keeps the Tigers on the straight and narrow

The Detroit Tigers have won three games in a row for the second time in 10 days, thanks to Jonathan Schoop, among other things.

Schoop hit a solo homerun and scored a two-run double to help the Tigers defeat the St Louis Cardinals 6-2 on Wednesday.

He hit his 10th home run this month, including one in yesterday’s 8-2 win.

“It’s special because the work pays off. I have to keep this momentum going, ”said Schoop. “It’s one of the best times of the season. « 

The Tigers have improved their lot but are still 10 games below the .500 mark as St. Louis moves in the opposite direction.

The Cards have lost five of their last six meetings. Since leading the central section of the National, they have lost 16 of 22 games, particularly because of the difficulties experienced by their starting pitchers and hitters.

Nolan Arenado was the author of a circuit however.

In the win, Matt Manning (1-1) allowed two runs, five hits and two walks in five and two-thirds innings. It was his second career start at Comerica Park and his parents were present through the crowd which gave him a standing ovation.
