Major league roundup: Yankees win, 7-4, for 8th straight victory

Gonzalez took a no-decision Thursday in Cleveland when he allowed three runs and eight hits in 4 2/3 innings.

Brewers 6, Cubs 3: Eric Thames homered in his club record-tying fifth straight game and streaking Milwaukee beat the White Sox in Chicago. As for the Yankees' difficulties hitting with runners in scoring position, Girardi busted out his best fortune cookie impression: "Good things are going to come". But he settled for a double high off the left-field fence despite a 102.8-mph exit velocity.

Judge added a run-scoring single to complete the third-inning outburst for NY.

"We've got guys in this room that can handle their business and are showing it", backup catcher Austin Romine said. Aaron Judge scores. Ronald Torreyes reaches on a fielder's choice to shortstop.

Trevor Rosenthal worked a flawless eighth inning before Seung Hwan Oh pitched the ninth, earning the Cardinals' first save of the season despite allowing an RBI single by pinch hitter Gregory Polanco that pulled the Pirates within 2-1.

A night after totalling four hits - none that left the infield - in a 4-1 loss to Chicago, the Yankees battered Covey early.

The White Sox swung at 54 percent of his sliders, and they whiffed often. Those factors would suggest Anderson is due for a market correction at the plate, which would be extremely beneficial to the 7-7 White Sox. Melky Cabrera grounds out to second base, Starlin Castro to Greg Bird.

Chicago first baseman Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 and is 2-for-27 on the trip.

But Tanaka responded by striking out Asche and drawing a weak groundout from Yolmer Sanchez to end the threat.

The game was tied at 2-all with one out in the fifth when Pujols hit his second homer of the season.

Sox are coming off a 2-1 series win over Minnesota Twins Sunday night.

Brett Gardner was presented with his AL Gold Glove Award before the game. He threw just 88 pitches - needing three in the seventh despite Jacoby Ellsbury's leadoff bunt single. Matt Holliday to third. Gregorius, likely to start an injury rehabilitation assignment Friday at Class A Tampa, also hit three liners to center off RHP Branden Pinder (Tommy John surgery) during 10 pitches of batting practice. The left fielder was back in the lineup Monday night, batting third against his original team. With one out, Pete Kozma hit a comebacker that nailed Derek Holland on the right foot before ricocheting into foul territory for a hit.

Garcia and the White Sox hitters will attempt to get their hits Wednesday off Masahiro Tanaka (1-1, 8.36 ERA). The win was the Yankees' eighth in a row.

Salazar (1-1) struck out seven and retired 15 of his last 18 batters after allowing five hits and one walk over a seven-batter stretch spanning the first two innings.

Steven Souza Jr. (2-for-4) drove in two runs and Brad Miller (1-for-4) added an RBI for the Rays, who have lost seven of their past eight against Boston and six of their past seven games overall. Frazier will most likely not be a part of the future of the White Sox, so the team should consider getting Davidson comfortable at third base, who could be just as productive if he continues to generate offense and improve his skills.
