PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Phillies clinched a wild-card berth, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 in 10 innings Tuesday night on Johan Rojas’ RBI single that set off a wild celebration in the outfield.

Rojas’ single off Pirates reliever David Bednar (3-3) scored pinch-runner Cristian Pache and sent the crowd of more than 30,000 fans into a frenzy.

Jeff Hoffman (5-2) tossed a scoreless 10th for the win.

Brandon Marsh homered for the Phillies.

CARDINALS 4, BREWERS 1: Milwaukee clinched the NL Central title for the third time in six seasons despite a loss at home and with the help of a come-from-behind win by Atlanta.


Milwaukee clinched its second division crown in three seasons when the Chicago Cubs dropped a 7-6 decision to the Braves.

BRAVES 7, CUBS 6: Sean Murphy reached on a two-run fielding error by right fielder Seiya Suzuki in the eighth inning and Atlanta overcame a six-run deficit at home.

ROCKIES 4, DODGERS 1: Chase Anderson pitched five scoreless innings for his first win in 17 starts this season, Nolan Jones homered and Colorado won at Denver to snap a seven-game losing streak in the opener of a doubleheader.

It was a rare loss for the postseason-bound Dodgers against the Rockies, who averted the first 100-loss season in their 30-year existence. The Dodgers came in having won eight of their first nine meetings this season against Colorado and a 30-15 record overall against fellow NL West teams. Colorado earned its franchise-record 99th loss of the season Sunday at Chicago.

ORIOLES 1, NATIONALS 0: Rookie Gunnar Henderson homered, Kyle Bradish had another dominant start and Baltimore won at home.

Bradish (12-7) allowed three hits, struck out four and had a pair of walks over a season-high eight innings. He has thrown at least six inning in his last eight starts and is 6-1 since Aug. 1.


REDS 11, GUARDIANS 7: Rookie Elly De La Cruz had his first two-homer game and drove in four runs, Luke Maile had three RBI and Cincinnati won at Cleveland.

De La Cruz hit a solo shot in the fourth off Lucas Giolito and hammered a 467-foot blast to right in the eighth against Xzavion Curry. Fellow rookie Christian Encarnacion-Strand, Maile and TJ Friedl also homered for Cincinnati.

YANKEES 2, BLUE JAYS 0: Austin Wells hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning and New York won at Toronto.

Michael King and two relievers combined on a three-hitter as the Yankees improved to a major league-best 18-9 since Aug. 28.

TIGERS 6, ROYALS 3: Akil Baddoo and Parker Meadows hit consecutive homers to lead off a four-run eighth inning and Detroit won at home.

Zack Greinke of Kansas City pitched five shutout innings, and saw his winless streak grow to 22 games (19 starts) since a 6-0 win over Baltimore on May 3. He has gone more than two years without a win on the road, losing 18 of 31 appearances.



CARDINALS: Eight days after winning his 200th game, 42-year-old Adam Wainwright said he has thrown his final pitch.

“I’ve thought a lot about it the last few days, but I’m in a really good place mentally,” he said. “No regrets about anything I ever did, no second thoughts of, am I making the right decision on pitching or retiring. I’m at peace with all of it in this spot that I’ve never been.

PHILLIES: First baseman Rhys Hoskins remains a long shot to make the postseason roster as he recovers from a torn ACL in his left knee, but he is hitting home runs in batting practice and is taking about 75 or 80 swings a day.

“He’s starting to get some power back,” Manager Rob Thomson said. “Sometimes that takes some time. He probably hit seven or eight balls out of the ballpark today.”

WHITE SOX: Center fielder Luis Robert Jr. will miss the final six games after being placed on the 10-day injured list with a mild MCL sprain in his left knee.


Robert slid awkwardly while stealing second base in the first inning Sunday against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park and exited in the second with left knee soreness.

YANKEES: Manager Aaron Boone reiterated that outfielder Aaron Judge is not expected to require offseason surgery on his ailing toe.

Judge was sidelined for 42 games after tearing a ligament in his right big toe when he crashed into the right-field fence while making a catch June 3 at Dodger Stadium.

TIGERS: Jeff Greenberg was named the team’s general manager.

Greenberg and team president Scort Harris worked together for the Cubs from 2012-19. While Harris continued to climb the traditional front-office ladder, becoming general manager of the San Francisco Giants in 2019, Greenberg left the Cubs in 2022 and became the associate general manager of the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks.
