(TSX / STATS) -- CHICAGO -- The Cincinnati Reds' 2018 tryout tour may have uncovered a potential star in Phillip Ervin.

Ervin drove in four runs, including a go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh inning, as the Cincinnati Reds blew an early nine-run lead and then outlasted the Chicago Cubs 13-10 on Thursday afternoon.

Ervin, who collected his first hit and home run on Wednesday, was 3-for-4 in his first start. He homered off Justin Grimm (1-2) to give the Reds an 11-9 lead after they held a 9-0 advantage following the second inning.


Severino carries Yanks to sweep of Mets

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- Luis Severino and Steven Matz looked as if they would be linked together in New York for years in the summer of 2015, when they made their major league debuts within six weeks of one another and pitched dynamically as rookies.

However, Severino and Matz never seemed further apart than Thursday night, when Severino took another step toward becoming the New York Yankees' long-desired homegrown ace and Matz sent the New York Mets back to the drawing board.


Rockies lose as Arenado hurts hand again

(TSX / STATS) -- DENVER -- It wasn't complete payback for the Atlanta Braves. But it was more than enough.

Ender Inciarte hit two of Atlanta's four solo home runs, and the Braves staggered the Colorado Rockies with a six-run seventh Thursday in a 10-4 victory and gained a split of their four-game series.


Kepler HR helps Twins split with Indians

(TSX / STATS) -- MINNEAPOLIS -- By the time the first game of the Thursday day-night doubleheader was finished, the Twins had endured eight consecutive home losses to the Indians, Minnesota's pitching was a mess, and the offense hadn't done much against Cleveland's pitching.

A starting pitcher making his major league debut helped turn the momentum, and Max Kepler got some redemption with a big home run as Minnesota finally beat the Indians at Target Field.


Mazara has 5 RBIs, Rangers back to .500

(TSX / STATS) -- ARLINGTON, Texas -- Nomar Mazara hit a three-run homer and recorded five RBIs as the Texas Rangers rallied for a 9-8 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday.

The win was the fourth straight and seventh in eight games for Texas, which also matched its largest comeback win of the season, as the White Sox led 4-0. The Rangers (60-60) reached the .500 mark for the first time since July 15.


Corbin goes 8 2/3, D-Backs blank Astros

(TSX / STATS) -- HOUSTON -- Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin fell just shy of his first complete game in four seasons while concluding what was an all-or-nothing series for the Houston Astros offensively.

Corbin pitched brilliantly while scattering four hits over 8 2/3 innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks earned a split of their four-game, home-and-home interleague series with the Houston Astros with a 4-0 victory on Thursday at Minute Maid Park.


Smoak, Donaldson HRs lift Jays over Rays

(TSX / STATS) -- TORONTO -- Josh Donaldson is hot right now. Justin Smoak has been hot nearly all season.

They form a dynamic duo with Smoak following Donaldson in the lineup.


Puig to fans: 'See you in World Series'

(TSX / STATS) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers are brimming with confidence, and with good reason considering they are a whopping 51 games over .500 and own a sterling 51-14 mark at home.

So perhaps it should come as no surprise that Yasiel Puig is focused on the big prize after he hit a two-run, walk-off double as the Dodgers (85-34) recorded a 5-4 comeback victory over the Chicago White Sox in front of a sellout home crowd Wednesday.


Tribe's Ramirez hit by pitch but 'fine'

(TSX / STATS) -- MINNEAPOLIS -- Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez left Thursday's opening game of a doubleheader against the Minnesota Twins after being hit in the right forearm by a fastball from pitcher Kyle Gibson.

Ramirez was hit by the pitch during the second inning. He hopped down the first-base line before dropping to a knee to be examined by an athletic trainer. Ramirez was in obvious pain as manager Terry Francona looked on.
