Chicago Cubs 4 – New York Mets 9

Highlights:  Curtis Granderson opened a five-run eighth inning with his 300th homer, a tiebreaking shot that helped the Mets bail out an ailing Harvey in a 9-4 victory Wednesday over the Chicago Cubs. Matt Harvey lost the zip on his fastball and gave up three homers in four innings, including Anthony Rizzo‘s latest leadoff shot and a titanic drive by Kyle Schwarber. New York also lost second baseman Neil Walker to a left leg injury. Replacement Lucas Duda hit a three-run homer off Hector Rondon in the eighth, and T.J. Rivera capped the outburst with an RBI single for his third hit.

 

Chicago White Sox 6 – Baltimore Orioles 10

Highlights:  Welington Castillo hit his first career grand slam and drove in a personal-best five runs, and the Orioles snapped a six-game losing streak with a rain-delayed 10-6 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night. Matt Davidson homered in his third straight game to help Chicago grab a 5-1 lead. But the Orioles turned this one around, pounding out 13 hits and overcoming two errors on the way to a lopsided victory. Trey Mancini had a double and two singles. He scored three runs and drove in one. Mark Trumbo added two hits and two runs.
