Rick Porcello's Immaculate Inning Sets MLB Record For Most In Season

Red Sox 2B Pedroia to return vs. Rays

METS 4, RANGERS 1: Rookie Chris Flexen got his first big league win and hit, and the New York Mets took an early four-run lead against emergency starter A.J. Griffin in a win over Texas at New York that stopped a four-game losing streak. Eduardo Nunez triggered the rally with a single off the foot of Jake Odorizzi, taking the pitcher out of the game.

X-rays came back negative, and he is listed as day-to-day with a contusion.

Dellin Betances recently did it for the Yankees, which means three of the five pitchers to throw an immaculate inning this season belong to one half of one of the most enduring rivalry in the game. He has a 6-14 record and a 4.63 earned run average. The franchise record was set by Pedro in 1999, when he struck out 10+ batters in 19 games.

San Diego piled up nine hits and five runs off Sal Romano (2-4), who was in trouble in each of his six innings.

Cody Bellinger homered and scored twice, and Los Angeles handed Arizona's Zack Greinke his first loss in 13 home starts this season. Solarte connected for a two-run shot an inning later. Tyler Duffey (1-3) relieved with two innings for his first victory of the season, and Dillon Gee struck out five over four scoreless innings for his first career save. Yasiel Puig followed with single for a 3-2 lead, chasing Greinke.

Charlie Blackmon homered in the 12th inning after Jonathan Lucroy sent the game into extra innings with an RBI double in the ninth as Colorado gained a split of the two-game series.

Tyler Clippard pitched the ninth for his second save. Thursday snapped a six-start winless streak for Porcello, who hadn't won since June 23. Josh Bell's double off the glove of third baseman Nicholas Castellanos was the lone hit off Verlander (8-7), whose eight-inning stint was his longest of the season. He's faced the Rays four times this season and punched out at least 12 batters in each of them. He allowed three hits and walked none.

On the year, the 28-year-old has given up a career-high 28 home runs. Frazier had three RBIs and three hits, and Gregorius added three hits for NY.

However, Boston would add two runs in the 8th to cruise to the 8-2 win.

Cincinnati catcher Tucker Barnhart hit a three-run homer off Jose Torres. Odorizzi stayed on the ground for a few seconds before leaving the game. Dozier added a double during a three-hit day, and Jorge Polanaco had two hits.

PHILLIES 5, BRAVES 2: Odubel Herrera hit a two-run homer, Zach Eflin pitched seven strong innings following his recall from the minors and Philadelphia beat Atlanta at Atlanta.

Madison Bumgarner allowed four hits and one run over seven innings as San Francisco beat Chicago. A bad throw by Austin Pruitt (6-3) prevented a possible inning-ending double play on Rafael Devers' chopper to the mound. Stanek recovered to strike out Sandy Leon, but Bradley hit a 2-2 pitch into short center for an RBI and a 2-0 lead. He had home run problems, and got himself into trouble, but overall wasn't awful.

Then the sixth inning came though. Rays reliever Ryne Stanek gave up singles to Xander Bogaerts and Mitch Moreland to put runners on first and third with no outs.

The right-hander is 3-0 with 38 strikeouts in his past seven starts. He allowed five hits, struck out six and walked one. Gary Sanchez and Didi Gregorius each hit their 18th home runs of the season as NY won for the third time in four games since a four-game losing streak. Perez (6-10) gave up three hits and walked none while striking out five in his longest outing since August 2, 2015.

Eugenio Suarez and Stuart Turner each smacked two-run homers and Jose Peraza drove in three runs in the Reds' 8-3 rout of the Padres.

- Porcello became the 84th pitcher in Major League Baseball history to toss an immaculate inning.
