The home run parade continues. Joc Pederson and Alex Bregman joined the double-digit club last night.

Bregman hit #10 — a solo job — along with two doubles in five at-bats as the Houston Astros (66-33) beat the host Philadelphia Phillies, 13-4. Pederson cracked his tenth — similarly good for one run — to tie the game at 2-2 and help the LA Dodgers (49-31) beat the visiting Minnesota Twins, 6-4. It was his only hit in three trips to the plate.

Ian Kinsler was 2-for-6 in six at-bats as the Detroit Tigers (45-53) lost to the visiting KC Royals in 12 innings, 5-3. Still subject of trade rumors.

Danny Valencia drove in his 50th run of the year with a double (#16) in the fourth inning to finish the scoring for the Seattle Mariners (50-51) in their 4-0 shutout over the visiting Boston Red Sox.

Kevin Pillar was 0-for-4 but the Toronto Blue Jays (45-54) beat the visiting Oakland A’s, 4-2.

Richard Bleier tossed one inning of scoreless relief for the Baltimore Orioles (48-51) in their 5-0 win over the host Tampa Bay Rays.

Brad Goldberg did not appear for the Chicago White Sox (39-57) in their 3-1 win over the host Chicago Cubs.

Ryan Braun and the Milwaukee Brewers had the day off.

Scott Feldman remains on the disabled list for the Cincinnati Reds.

No one has picked up Craig Breslow yet. He was designated for assignment yesterday by the Twins.
