ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -AP- The breaks are starting to go the Texas Rangers' way.
Texas turned three Tampa Bay miscues into a three-run sixth inning and the Rangers beat the Rays 4-3 on Saturday night.
The Rangers took a 4-3 lead during the decisive sixth when two runs scored after center fielder Mallex Smith misplayed Adrian Beltre's two-out deep fly ball, and Beltre scored on two wild pitches by Chris Archer with Mike Napoli at the plate.
 
 
Rangers turn 3 Rays miscues into 4-3 win
 
 
"It's one of those situations that just kind of goes our way," Texas manager Jeff Banister said. "We haven't had a lot of those. We were able to take advantage of it."
Smith said it was a ball that should have been caught.
"I just shanked it," Smith said. "Just a bad play. That's about it. I was right there up under it. I just missed it."
Elvis Andrus, who entered the series hitless in 16 at-bats, homered in his second consecutive three-hit game for the Rangers, who have won two straight following a five-game skid.
Andrew Cashner (5-8) gave up three runs and four hits over six innings. Alex Claudio, the third Rangers reliever, got four outs for his fourth save.
Claudio went two scoreless innings in Texas' 4-3, 10-inning win over the Rays on Friday night to get his second win.
"He's been our workhorse right there in the bullpen," Andrus said.
Archer (7-6) allowed four runs, four hits and struck out 11 to set a team record with his 24th career game with double-digit strikeouts. David Price had 23 double-digit strikeout games with the Rays.
Steven Souza Jr. had an RBI single and Evan Longoria hit a two-run single as the Rays went up 3-0 in the third.
Archer retired his first 10 batters before Andrus homered in the fourth. Andrus had a homer and two RBI Friday night.
 
CHICAGO -AP- Kris Bryant galloped home from first base on Anthony Rizzo's bloop double, capping a three-run rally in the eighth inning that sent the Chicago Cubs over the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 Saturday in the ever-tightening NL Central race.
A classic pitchers' duel between Jon Lester and Adam Wainwright kept it scoreless into the eighth at Wrigley Field. The Cubs began the day one game behind shaky Milwaukee for the division lead, with the Cardinals 3 1/2 back of the Brewers.
 
 
Bryant gallops home, Cubs rally in 8th, edge Cardinals 3-2
 
 
After Paul DeJong and Randal Grichuk hit two-out homers off Lester for a 2-0 lead, the Cubs came back.
Ben Zobrist's RBI double with two outs made it 2-1 and chased Wainwright. Bryant greeted reliever Matt Bowman (2-4) with a broken-bat single that tied it.
Brett Cecil then relieved and on a 3-2 pitch, Rizzo hit a looper to shallow left-center. Bryant ran hard the whole way and slid home feet first as catcher Yadier Molina couldn't control center fielder Dexter Fowler's one-hop throw.
Statcast showed Rizzo's hit landed 252 feet from the plate -- it was 270 feet from first to home for Bryant.
Bryant missed Friday's loss to the Cardinals with a sprained pinkie, and Cubs manager Joe Maddon said after that game the reigning NL MVP was unlikely to play Saturday.
Lester (7-6) had a perfect game until Wainwright singled with two outs in the sixth. Lester gave up three hits and struck out 10 in eight innings.
Wade Davis issued a pair of two-out walks in the ninth before fanning Molina for his 19th saves in 19 chances.
Lester retired the first 17 Cardinals in order before Wainwright, one of baseball's better-hitting pitchers, grounded a single to left field.
That was the Cardinals only hit until DeJong, who attended high school in nearby Antioch, Illinois, and Grichuk connected. They both hit their 11th home runs of the season.
Wainwright allowed two runs on four hits in 7 2/3 innings, retiring 14 straight at one point.
HENDRICKS READY, MONTGOMERY TO PEN
Kyle Hendricks, who has not pitched since June 4 due to tendinitis in his pitching hand, will return to the Cubs rotation on Monday against the White Sox. The 27-year-old righty is 4-3 with a 4.09 ERA in 11 starts this season after going 16-8 with a major league-best 2.13 ERA last season.
Mike Montgomery will go back to the bullpen to make room for Hendricks, Maddon said. Montgomery is 2/3 with a 5.13 ERA in eight starts this season but allowed just one run on two hits in six innings in his last start.
 
DENVER -AP- German Marquez matched a career best with nine strikeouts in seven solid innings and also had a wayward pitch that fueled a near brawl as the Colorado Rockies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-3 on Saturday night.
Mark Reynolds added a pair of run-scoring singles and Charlie Blackmon scored after doubling in the third and tripling in the eighth.
Marquez (8-4) hit Andrew McCutchen with a pitch in the sixth inning, and the Pirates outfielder strode toward the mound before being headed off by home plate umpire Chad Fairchild and slowly taking his base. Going into the game, the Pirates had a major league-high 55 batters hit by pitches, including four by Rockies pitchers on Friday night.
In apparent retaliation, Chad Kuhl threw an inside pitch leading off the bottom of the sixth that narrowly missed Carlos Gonzalez, who had to back away from the plate sharply to avoid it. He dropped his bat and walked toward the mound, exchanging words with Kuhl as Fairchild and catcher Francisco Cervelli blocked his path. Players and coaches from both teams streamed onto the field and though there were some heated exchanges, no punches were thrown.
Calm prevailed after warnings were issued to both teams and play resumed without further incident.
The Pirates had their six-game winning streak halted despite Josh Bell's home run leading off the fourth.
Marquez gave up an RBI double to McCutchen in the first but kept the Pirates largely in check the rest of the way. He set down three straight batters in the fourth after yielding Bell's homer to start the inning, and recorded strikeouts in six of his seven innings.
Marquez also singled for the Rockies' first hit of the game in the third and scored.
Greg Holland got four outs for his major league-leading 31st save in 32 chances. The Pirates loaded the bases in the ninth with one out but Holland struck out pinch-hitter Jose Osuna and got Josh Harrison to fly out to center around an infield RBI single by Starling Marte.
Kuhl (3-7) allowed four runs on nine hits in six innings. He started strong but the Rockies got to him for a three-run third that put Colorado in front to stay.
 
BALTIMORE -AP- Marwin Gonzalez stepped in for injured Colin Moran and delivered a pinch-hit, three-run homer in the sixth inning to propel the Houston Astros past the Baltimore Orioles 8-4 on Saturday night.
Moran fouled a ball off his left eye and had difficulty standing before being carted from the field. An update on his condition was not immediately available.
Gonzalez subsequently ended a nine-pitch at-bat by driving a 2-2 offering from Darren O'Day (1-3) over the right-field wall and onto Eutaw Street.
 
 
Gonzalez pinch-hit HR carries Astros to 8-4 win over Orioles
 
It was Houston's first pinch-hit homer of the season, and it capped a five-run uprising that wiped out Baltimore's 4-1 lead.
Alex Bregman and Yuli Gurriel also homered for the Astros, who will seek to complete a three-game sweep on Sunday. Houston has won eight straight over the Orioles spanning two seasons.
Astros right-hander Collin McHugh allowed four runs in 4 2/3 innings in his season debut and Francis Martes (3-0) pitched 2 1/3 innings of hitless relief.
McHugh went 19-7 in 2015 and 13-10 last year before being diagnosed with right shoulder tendinitis at spring training. He was shut down after one inning in a rehab start for Triple-A Fresno on April 6, returned to the mound on June 30 and pitched in four games with Double-A Corpus Christi before being activated Saturday.
McHugh showed no ill effects from the layoff -- until the fifth inning. After issuing a leadoff walk to Seth Smith, he got two quick outs before it started to rain. An instant later, Adam Jones drove a 2-0 pitch into the left-field seats.
Manny Machado followed with a single and Jonathan Schoop chased McHugh with a shot that wasted no time clearing the left-field wall.
Gurriel shaved the margin with a two-run drive off Chris Tillman in the sixth, and Gonzalez completed the comeback.
Tillman and McHugh had to wait through a 58-minute rain delay before the game began. They were locked in a scoreless duel until Bregman led off the fifth inning with his ninth home run, the first in 69 at-bats since June 23.
NOT SELLING?
Orioles vice president of baseball operations doesn't sound like he's going to be dealing away talent before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. "We're going to see what we can do this week to help our ballclub," Dan Duquette told fans at the annual midseason "State of the Orioles" session.
 
PHOENIX -AP- Bryce Harper homered and drove in two runs, Tanner Roark struck out a season-high 11 and Sean Doolittle stranded the potential tying run to preserve the Washington Nationals' 4-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night.
Roark (8-6) gave up two runs and three hits in seven innings for the NL East-leading Nationals.
Harper hit his 25th home run of the season on a full-count changeup from Anthony Banda (0-1), who lost in his major league debut.
Chris Iannetta hit a two-out RBI double in the bottom half, but the Nationals opened a 4-1 lead with a three-run sixth.
Harper hit an a run-scoring double and scored on Ryan Zimmerman's double, and Anthony Rendon beat out an RBI single that sent Zimmerman home.
A.J. Pollock tripled in the bottom half and scored on Jake Lamb's groundout, and Arizona reliever Jorge De La Rosa got out of bases-loaded trouble in the seventh when he struck out Harper and Zimmerman.
Doolittle, acquired from Oakland last weekend, walked Lamb leading off the ninth. Iannetta hit a grounder to third, and Rendon's throw to second went into right field for an error that put runners on the corners.
Paul Goldschmidt hit a sacrifice fly, Chris Owings flied out and Doolittle struck out Ketel Marte for his second save with the Nationals.
Banda allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings, struck out five and walked none.
OUT STRETCHING
Brian Goodwin, who had three hits, was thrown out at third base trying to stretch a third-inning double, with right fielder David Peralta throwing to second baseman Chris Owings, who made the relay.
RECORD BOOK
Zimmerman's 361st double made him the Montreal/Washington career leader, one ahead of Tim Wallach.
GOLDY'S `DAY OFF'
Manager Torey Lovullo gave Goldschmidt a day off from the starting lineup, but the All-Star pinch hit in the ninth. "He went to the All-Star Game and didn't get the the four days off that everybody else had," Lovullo said. "He always wants to be in there. It was one of those decisions that I had to make where I said take the day off and be ready for a Sunday day game."
 
CLEVELAND (AP) Francisco Lindor hit a leadoff home run in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Cleveland Indians defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 2-1 on Saturday night.
Lindor hit a 2-2 pitch from Danny Barnes (2-3) to right field for his 15th homer of the season just as a hard rain began to fall. Lindor dashed around the bases and was mobbed his teammates at home plate and was doused by several coolers of water.
The Progressive Field grounds crew put the tarp on the field while Cleveland’s players were still celebrating the victory.
Bryan Shaw (3-4) retired Kevin Pillar on a groundout with two on to end the 10th.
Danny Salazar came off the disabled list and held Toronto to one hit in seven innings. Cleveland led 1-0, but Justin Smoak homered on Andrew Miller’s first pitch in the eighth.
Smoak’s towering drive barely cleared the wall in right field and hit off the railing in front of the first row of seats for his 27th homer.
Cody Allen walked Darwin Barney to lead off the ninth. Left fielder Michael Brantley caught Jose Bautista’s fly ball in front of the warning track and made a perfect throw to second baseman Jose Ramirez to get Barney, who tagged up.
Salazar, activated before the game after being out since June 3 because of a sore right shoulder, struck out eight and didn’t walk a batter. Pillar’s leadoff single in the third was the only hit he allowed.
Salazar retired the last 14 hitters he faced and was pulled after throwing 86 pitches.
Edwin Encarnacion’s RBI groundout in the fourth put Cleveland ahead. Third baseman Josh Donaldson couldn’t turn an inning-ending double play after bobbling the hard-hit ball, allowing Lindor to score from third.
Stroman gave up five hits, struck out seven and walked five in 7 2/3 innings.
Salazar came out firing in the first, striking out the side on 12 pitches and hitting in the mid-to-high 90s on the radar gun. He made his first start since May 27. Salazar was moved to the bullpen to monitor his innings but was placed on the DL on June 6.
 
ANAHEIM, Calif. -AP- Andrelton Simmons drove in three runs, including a go-ahead two-run homer, Albert Pujols went 3 for 4 with two RBI and the Los Angeles Angels rallied for a 7-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night.
Simmons hit his 10th homer of the season to left and put the Angels ahead 4-3 in the third inning after falling behind early. Pujols doubled to score Yunel Escobar and Mike Trout to start the four-run outburst.
 
 
Simmons slugs Angels to 7-3 win over Red Sox
 
Pujols became the 26th player to score 1,700 runs when he touched home plate after Simmons went deep. Pujols joins Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Alex Rodriguez and Willie Mays in amassing at least 600 home runs and 1,700 runs.
JC Ramirez (9-8) recorded his second win at home in 11 starts, striking out six while allowing one earned run and five hits in six innings.
David Price (5-3) gave up five earned runs and seven hits in five innings, allowing more than three earned runs for only the second time this year.
The Red Sox got off to another fast start after scoring five runs in the first inning on Friday. Hanley Ramirez had an RBI single to start the game, and the Red Sox got two runs in the second after the Angels' franchise-record streak of 14 games without an error ended when Ramirez couldn't make the catch to complete a double play while covering first. Mookie Betts hit his 31st double to knock in a run and then was driven in by Andrew Benintendi for a 3-0 lead.
However, the Angels were able to respond after dropping the series opener. They added two runs in the fifth when Simmons singled, again bringing home Pujols, and he scored on a throwing error by shortstop Xander Bogaerts.
Trout picked up an RBI in the sixth, giving him five in seven games this home stand.
 
LOS ANGELES -AP- Chris Taylor drove in three runs with a home run and a triple, and Corey Seager and Chase Utley hit solo home runs as the Los Angeles Dodgers snapped a two-game losing streak with a 6-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night.
Ending the two-game hiccup which saw the Dodgers outscored 18-6, Los Angeles has won 32 of 38, and 19 of 22 at Dodger Stadium, for the best record in baseball. The Dodgers' 67-31 mark is their best through 98 games since the Brooklyn Dodgers were 69-29 in 1942.
 
 
Seager, Utley and Taylor homer and Dodgers beat Braves 4-2
 
 
Taylor, who entered the game as part of a double-switch in the seventh, led off the bottom of the inning by driving an 0-1 pitch from Julio Teheran 400 feet into the left field bleachers, giving the Dodgers a 4-2 lead.
Taylor added a two-run triple off reliever Luke Jackson with two outs in the eighth for the final margin.
Dodgers starter Rich Hill (7-4) struck out eight as he held the Braves to two runs and six hits over 6 1/3 innings, winning his third decision over his last four starts.
