TORONTO — Marco Estrada and two relievers combined on a six-hitter, Jose Bautista hit a solo home run and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 4-0 on Thursday night.

Ryan Tepera worked the eighth and Roberto Osuna finished.

Bautista hit a two-out drive off Chasen Shreve in the seventh. It was his 36th career homer against New York, breaking a tie with Tampa Bay’s Evan Longoria for the most by an active player.

Making his second start for the Yankees, Sonny Gray (6-7) allowed three runs, two of them earned, in six innings.

RAYS 4, INDIANS 1: Corey Dickerson’s three-run homer in the eighth inning carried host Tampa Bay past Cleveland.

Dickerson’s two-out blast off Nick Goody (1-2), his 22nd, came after Adeiny Hechavarria singled and Jesus Sucre was hit by a pitch.

Tommy Hunter (2-2) worked 12/3 scoreless innings in relief of Blake Snell to get the win. Alex Colome pitched the ninth for his 34th save in 39 opportunities.


NATIONALS 3, MARLINS 2: Brian Goodwin had two hits, including a home run leading off the eighth inning, and Washington rallied past visiting Miami.

Ryan Madson (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth inning and Sean Doolittle worked around a one-out double by Miguel Rojas in the ninth for his seventh save since coming to Washington.

CARDINALS 8, ROYALS 6: Dexter Fowler hit a grand slam and drove in a career-high five runs to lead host St. Louis to its sixth straight win. Kansas City has lost four in a row.

Fowler broke a 3-3 tie in the seventh inning with his 15th homer of the season. He ripped the first pitch from Neftali Feliz 404 feet for his third career slam.

Lorenzo Cain had four hits for the Royals.

METS 10, PHILLIES 0: New York’s Jacob deGrom pitched brilliantly until leaving in the seventh inning because of a contusion on his right triceps after being hit by a line drive by Nick Williams, and the Mets homered four times at Philadelphia.

DeGrom (13-5) gave up four hits in 62/3 scoreless innings with nine strikeouts and no walks.

The Mets got good news when X-rays on the right-hander were negative.
