Braves finally get the better of Giants in 5—0 victory

SAN FRANCISCO -- Atlanta beat San Francisco for the first time in five attempts this season, with starting pitcher Mike Minor in command as the Braves won 5-0 in Tuesday's clash of National League divisional leaders.

Atlanta's Mike Minor (1-2) finally broke through for his first win in his ninth start of the season, striking out six batter in 6-2/3 scoreless innings.

Evan Gattis drove in a run with his first career triple while Freddie Freeman, B.J Upton and Andrelton Simmons added RBI singles in a three-run sixth inning for the Braves, who moved 2-1/2 games clear atop the NL East.

Oakland made it six-straight wins by routing the White Sox 11-0.

Brandon Moss homered twice, Josh Reddick once, while Yoenis Cespedes added two hits and scored twice to anchor a shuffled Athletics lineup.

Oakland starter Drew Pomeranz (3-1) pitched five shutout innings with eight strikeouts as the A's improved to 25-15; their best 40-game record for 11 years.

Detroit benefited from a reversed call to stage an improbable ninth-inning comeback and win 4-1 at Baltimore.

The Orioles led 1-0 going into the ninth. Pitcher Tommy Hunter gave up a leadoff single and pinch-runner Rajai Davis was called out trying to steal second. However Detroit manager Brad Ausmus challenged the call and it was overturned after a replay review.

Hunter (1-1) got two straight outs before walking a batter and then Miguel Cabrera laced a curveball over the center-field wall. Victor Martinez followed with a homer of his own to make it 3-1, and Justin Miller protected the lead in the bottom of the inning with all three outs.

Kansas City's James Shields was dominant as the Royals won 5-1 at home against Colorado.

Los Angeles' pitcher Josh Beckett earned his first victory since 2012 as the Dodgers beat Miami 7-1.

Milwaukee's Jonathan Lucroy hit a bases-loaded, two-run single which helped the Brewers beat Pittsburgh 5-2.

The New York Mets won 12-7 at the crosstown Yankees, with Curtis Granderson and Daniel Murphy each hitting three-run homers.

Granderson connected for the second consecutive game against his old team, helping the Mets jump out to a quick lead after they used four homers to rally for a 9-7 victory the night before.

The Mets roughed up fill-in starter Vidal Nuno (1-1) in a result that left the local rivals on identical 19-19 win-loss records.

Minnesota's Chris Parmelee hit a game-ending homer in the ninth inning to give the Twins an 8-6 win over Boston.

Tampa Bay rallied in the ninth inning to win 2-1 at Seattle, while David Price struck out 12 in his second complete game this season.
