Indians rally past fading Marlins

CLEVELAND — Lonnie Chisenhall capped a three-run rally with a two-out RBI single in the ninth inning against former Ray Fernando Rodney, leading the Indians over the Marlins 6-5 Sunday.

Chisenhall's hit dropped in front of sliding rightfielder Ichiro Suzuki and scored pinch-runner Michael Martinez, giving the AL Central leaders their sixth straight win.

Jose Ramirez's two-run single, also with two outs, tied it.

Indians manager Terry Francona was ejected earlier in the ninth for arguing when Jason Kipnis struck out on a check-swing call.

The Indians completed a three-game sweep and maintained a 51/2-game lead over the Tigers. Miami has lost eight of nine.

Ichiro's ninth-inning double off Andrew Miller broke a tie at 3. Martin Prado added a sacrifice fly, giving the Marlins a two-run lead.

A'S 1, RED SOX 0: Eduardo Rodriguez's no-hit bid for visiting Boston was broken up after a replay reversal with two outs in the eighth, and Khris Davis hit a game-ending double in the ninth for Oakland. Brock Holt misplayed Davis' double in deep leftfield for an error that allowed Danny Valencia to score from first base.

ANGELS 4, MARINERS 2: Matt Shoemaker was hospitalized after taking a line drive to the head in visiting Los Angeles' win. Shoemaker was hit on the right side with one out in the second inning on a line drive from Kyle Seager. A CT scan revealed Shoemaker had a small skull fracture and small hematoma.

TIGERS 6, ROYALS 5: Justin Upton hit a two-run homer with two outs in the eighth inning, lifting visiting Detroit.

YANKEES 5, ORIOLES 2: Chase Headley and Austin Romine had two RBIs apiece, and visiting New York avoided a three-game sweep and remained afloat in the AL wild-card race.

ASTROS 7, RANGERS 6: George Springer and Evan Gattis homered for visiting Houston, which avoided a series sweep and snapped Texas' seven-game winning streak.

CUBS 3, GIANTS 2 (13): Jason Heyward tied it with a single in the ninth, and his liner to left-center in the 13th won it as host Chicago took three of four.

DODGERS 7, PADRES 4: Jose De Leon struck out nine in his major-league debut, pinch-hitter Yasmani Grandal drove in three runs, including a go-ahead single in the fifth inning, and host Los Angeles rallied.

CARDINALS 5, REDS 2: Randal Grichuk and Kolten Wong homered and Carlos Martinez carried a shutout into the seventh inning as St. Louis snapped a three-game skid.

BREWERS 10, PIRATES 0: Domingo Santana had his first career two-home run game and Jonathan Villar hit his first grand slam as visiting Milwaukee completed a three-game sweep and handed Pittsburgh its sixth straight loss.

Around the league

KERSHAW TO RETURN: Dodgers ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to pitch Friday at Miami after spending more than two months on the disabled list with a herniated disc. Manager Dave Roberts said the three-time Cy Young Award winner won't have a specific pitch count, but the team will be looking at the big picture with the playoffs coming up next month.
