LeMahieu comes up big for Yankees as Padres beat Giants
DJ LeMahieu's early grand slam propelled the New York Yankees to a 7-5 win over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday as tempers flared again.
A week after Josh Donaldson and Tim Anderson scrapped in Chicago, the two resumed hostilities in the third inning as the former American League MVP, in his first season with the Yankees, rounded second base.
The benches were then cleared in the fifth inning, when the Yankees' designated hitter faced off with White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal.
The Pinstripes started strong early and took the lead in the second with a five-run inning, on the back of LeMahieu going deep off Dallas Keuchel with two out.
Nestor Cortes struck out seven and gave up six hits over 100 pitches in five innings, as the Yankees moved to 29-10.
Musgrove muzzles Giants in Padres win
Joe Musgrove was in fine form as the San Diego Padres defeated the San Francisco Giants 2-1 in a big National League West matchup.
Musgrove pitched seven scoreless innings, striking out four and giving up only four hits over 100 pitches.
Manny Machado scored the eventual winning run for the Padres, sending Carlos Rodon's fast-ball back over his head.
Varsho drives Diamondbacks to extra-innings victory
The Arizona Diamondbacks staged a late comeback to defeat the Chicago Cubs, winning 7-6 in an extra inning on the road.
Daulton Varsho was pivotal for the D-Backs, forcing the 10th inning with a two-out, three-RBI double.
Varsho then scored the winning run on the back of a throwing error by Andrelton Simmons in the 10th inning, before Mark Melancon made his ninth save of the season.
