OAKLAND -- Giants right-hander Jake Peavy pointed emphatically at catcher Trevor Brown in a gesture of approval during the third inning Wednesday after getting Marcus Semien to hit what looked like a harmless-looking pop-up to shallow right field.
Pinch-hitter Tyler Goeddel hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning and the Philadelphia Phillies completed their first sweep at Chase Field in 10 years with a 9-8 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Ahead by five runs with one out and no one on in the bottom of the eighth inning, the Texas Rangers had a 98.8 percent probability of beating the New York Yankees, extending their winning streak to five and improving to 21-6 in June.
Trailing by four runs in the ninth inning, the somnambulant New York Yankees were on the verge of falling 10 games behind division-leading Baltimore in the AL East. Many in the crowd of 39,875 already had streamed out, convinced they had seen another listless loss in a season filled with them.
