Baseball roundup

Gregory Polanco's fourth hit of the game -- the Pirates' third two-out RBI single in the bottom of the 10th inning -- gave Pittsburgh a 6-5 win over the Cardinals last night.

Randal Grichuk doubled home two runs in the top of the 10th, but the Pirates cut down Mark Reynolds at the plate on the play, and that proved important. Starling Marte, Francisco Cervelli and Polanco had big hits in the bottom of the inning, with Polanco's looping single to right the game-winner.

Nationals 3, Orioles 2: Max Scherzer (10-7, 2.11) took a three-hitter into the ninth for visiting Washington. After Adam Jones hit his second homer of the game with two outs, Drew Storen struck out Chris Davis for his 27th save.

Royals 11, Blue Jays 10: Paulo Orlando broke a tie with an eighth-inning homer and Kendrys Morales hit a three-run shot for host Kansas City, which led 7-0 after five innings before the Blue Jays scored eight runs in the sixth. Danny Valencia and Jose Bautista had two-run doubles in the inning.

Rays 4, Astros 3: Matt Moore got his first win since elbow surgery as host Tampa Bay completed a three-game sweep. It was his third start after missing 15 months.

Cubs 3, White Sox 1: Jake Arrieta (10-5) pitched a two-hitter and homered to lead the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Arrieta struck out nine in his second complete game of the season.

Angels 10, Mariners 3: Chris Iannetta hit a two-run home run and David Freese added a two-run double in a six-run sixth for visiting Los Angeles.

Twins 7, Tigers 1: Kyle Gibson (8-6) gave up a run in seven innings and Miguel Sano hit a two-run homer for host Minnesota.

Rockies 11, Braves 3: Troy Tulowitzki homered and Charlie Blackmon drove in four runs as host Colorado completed a four-game sweep.

Giants 4, Phillies 2: Andrew Susac hit a three-run homer to back Chris Heston (9-5), who gave up one run in 62/3 innings for host San Francisco.
