Chicago Cubs 10 – Baltimore Orioles 3

Highlights:  Jake Arrieta settled down after a wild start to hold the Orioles to four hits over 6 2/3 innings and lead the Cubs to a 10-3 win Saturday night. Addison Russell homered for the second straight game, and Albert Almora and Anthony Rizzo also went deep for Chicago, which hit eight homers in winning the first two games of the series. Arrieta (9-7) walked three in the first two innings, then retired 11 of 12 batters before Caleb Joseph‘s a solo home run in the fifth. Arrieta allowed two runs, one earned, with three strikeouts and three walks over 6 2/3 innings. Wade Miley (4-8) gave up seven runs, nine hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings. Willson Contreras had three hits, including an RBI double in the sixth, and Rizzo homered in the eighth. Javier Baez also had three hits.

 

Chicago White Sox 3 – Seattle Mariners 4

Highlights:  Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager homered, and the sloppy Seattle Mariners beat the Chicago White Sox 4-3 on Saturday night for their third straight victory. Seattle committed three errors, and Felix Hernandez (5-3) plunked Jose Abreu twice and threw a wild pitch. But Cruz’s two-run drive off Anthony Swarzak (4-3), just the second homer allowed by the reliever this season, made it 4-3 Mariners in the sixth, and their bullpen shut down the lowly White Sox the rest of the way. Steve Cishek, Tony Zych and Nick Vincent each pitched a scoreless inning before Edwin Diaz finished for his 15th save in 18 chances. The right-hander struck out Abreu with runners on first and second for the final out.
