Major League Baseball: The East of the American, the death section

Major Baseball: East American, Death Section


Hard to beat the American East Division in major league baseball. By virtue of a 6-4 win in 11th inning against the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday at Tropicana Field, the Baltimore Orioles surpassed the bar of .500 with a record of 46-45. 

Despite this positive record, the formation of Maryland is in last place in its section, respectively behind the Boston Red Sox (48-43), the Toronto Blue Jays (49-43), the Rays (50-41) and the New York Yankees (62-28). The Yankees and the Red Sox were to cross swords in the evening. 

To return to the Orioles, they took advantage of a single from Ryan Mountcastle in the second extra inning, while Jorge Mateo and Cedric Mullins were at third and second base, respectively, to break a 4-4 tie and take a two-point lead.

Young receiver Adley Rutschman also had a say in the victory for his team. His solo home run in the eighth inning forced the extra innings first, while his sacrifice fly in the 10th inning temporarily gave the eventual winners the lead.

Ramirez gives himself performing for the Guardians

In Cleveland, José Ramirez angered Guardians fans by driving in half of his points in a 10-0 win over the Detroit Tigers .

The third baseman made a name for himself on his team's first turn at bat, sending pitcher Michael Pineda out of bounds while Steven Kwan and Amed Rosario were on the trails. /p>

Ramirez returned to the charge in the next assault, once again against Pineda (2-5). This time around, the 29-year-old capped a five-run streak for his team with his second homer of the game, this time for two runs.

This offensive effort also put an end to the evening of work for Pineda, who was shown the exit door after only two innings of work, he who gave up eight runs on nine hits.

For his part, Ramirez ended his night on the job with two hits and five RBIs.

A grand slam from Maldonado propels the Astros

In Houston, Martin Maldonado scored a grand slam in the second inning and that was more than enough for the Astros, who beat the Oakland Athletics 5-0.

Maldonado is thus brought to the plate, in front of pitcher Jared Koenig (1-3), while Yuli Gurriel, Jake Meyers and Chas McCormick each occupied a cushion, with two outs already on the clock. The receiver emptied the paths in one go.

On the mound for crowd favorites, 39-year-old veteran Justin Verlander (12-3) scored his 12th victory of the campaign in blanking his opponents for six innings, allowing only six hits in addition to making 10 opponents bite the dust.
