OF Rajai Davis became the eighth Indians player to hit for the cycle on Saturday in the 9-6 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.

Since returning June 19 after missing 20 games with a sore right quadriceps, Tulowitzki is batting 17-for-49 (.347) with six home runs and 12 RBIs. "I don't necessarily think that was the case". They knew I was struggling.

Mets 4, Cubs 3: Jake Arrieta lost a regular-season road start for the first time in 14 months when Neil Walker hit a two-run homer, and Travis d'Arnaud blooped a two-run single that pushed the Mets to their third straight win over the Cubs. Catcher Chris Gimenez pitched two innings for the Indians, becoming the third position player to take the mound this series.

Eduardo Nunez had four hits for the Twins, who scored at least three runs in four of the first five innings. He has yet to appear in a major league game.

"I went and looked at it six or seven times", said Indians manager Terry Francona. "The ball has such good finish through the plate".

Toronto has won 12 of its last 18 home games.

Kluber (8-8), who had won his previous two starts, went just 3 1/3 innings, allowing five earned-runs on seven hits while walking four and striking out four.

"They keep telling us it has to be conclusive", Francona said of the process of overturning a call. He led off the game with a home run, tripled home a run in the third, doubled and scored in the seventh, and singled in the ninth. The homer was his second in two games.

Bartolo Colon (7-4) outpitched the NL Cy Young Award victor, who struggled with his control in a 35-pitch first inning, when he went to 3-2 counts on his first four batters. He also pitched for Texas against the Angels on July 10, 2014.

Angels 21, Red Sox 2 • C.J. Cron had six hits, including two homers, and had five RBIs while Carlos Perez had five hits and drove in six as visiting Los Angeles rolled.

Toronto Blue Jays designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion was suspended for one game by Major League Baseball on Sunday and fined an undisclosed amount for making contact with an umpire. Encarnacion was ejected for arguing with Carapazza after being called out on strikes to end the first.
