Tigers win on Upton home run

Tigers win on Upton home run”

METS 7, PHILLIES 6: At Philadelphia, Amed Rosario's first career homer broke a tie leading off the ninth inning, Yoenis Cespedes and Michael Conforto also went deep and NY beat Philadelphia.

The Twins used 19 hits to rally from an early 5-0 hole only to have their six-game winning streak broken by Justin Upton's two-run, ninth-inning home run off Matt Belilse in a 12-11 loss to the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.

YANKEES 5, RED SOX 4: At New York, Aaron Hicks awoke a dormant offense with a two-run homer that sparked a five-run eighth inning, then threw out a runner at third in the ninth inning to help Aroldis Chapman get out of trouble and helped New York stop Boston's winning streak at eight.

Belisle had easily converted his first two save opportunities since Kintzler departed, and he struck out Ian Kinsler to end the eighth inning and preserve the Twins' one-run lead.

Joe Mauer homered and drove in five runs as the Twins took an 11-6 lead. Mikie Mahtook singled against Belisle (0-2) starting the bottom half and Upton drove a high fastball into the left-field seats (see full recap). The Tigers had lost six of seven before the offense came to life and overcame the pitching Saturday night against the surging Minnesota Twins.

Stanton went 3 for 4 with two runs scored and is hitting.382 (13 for 34) with eight home runs and 15 RBI in his last nine games. He needs one home run to tie Gary Sheffield for the Marlins' single-season mark set in 1996.

Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario drove in three runs apiece as the Minnesota Twins dumped the Detroit Tigers, 9-4, in Detroit. Zimmermann was not almost as strong at Minnesota on July 22, when he was ripped for five runs on nine hits and four walks in 3 2/3 innings.

Dillon Gee allowed a sacrifice fly to Upton after Mahtook's one-out triple in the seventh.

After Martinez walked to load the bases, McCann jumped on a first-pitch, off-speed offering and pounded it over the fence in left.

McCann also doubled and scored in the fourth, making it a 7-6 ballgame.
