He left after seven innings with the game tied 3-3, but the Royals went on to win 5-3, scoring two runs in the top of the 12 inning on back-to-back from runs from Salvador Perez and Mike Moustakas against recently recalled Drew VerHagen.

Amid ongoing speculation he could be traded soon, Justin Verlander allowed three runs and five hits in seven innings for Detroit.

Kansas City starter Jason Hammel allowed three runs and five hits in 5 2/3 innings. Moustakas added a sacrifice fly later that inning to make it 2-0. The 34-year-old has let up three runs or fewer in eight of his last nine outings since giving up four runs in 4 1/3 frames against the Tigers on May 29. Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera returned from a collarbone issue but went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts to drop his average to.256, the lowest it has been in almost two months. It was Avila's third hit all season off a left-hander.

CARDINALS 8, ROCKIES 2: In St. Louis, Randal Grichuk hit a two-run homer, and Mike Leake pitched seven scoreless innings to lead St. Louis. It was the first win for Leake (7-8) against the Rockies since August 10, 2011. Tyler Lyons struck out the side in the ninth. The Cubs lost for just the second time in 10 games following the All-Star break to fall a half-game behind idle first-place Milwaukee in the NL Central.

INDIANS 6, REDS 2 Josh Tomlin pitched six efficient innings, Carlos Santana homered twice and the Cleveland Indians won their fourth straight, topping the tumbling Cincinnati Reds in the makeup of a May 25 rainout. He has the highest walk rate of his career (4.2 per nine innings) but has issued exactly one free pass in three of his last six outings.
