Astros top Orioles in 11th

Reuters, AP

Robinson Chirinos hit an RBI double with two outs in the 11th inning to lift the Houston Astros to a 4-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Friday.

Yuli Gurriel singled with one out in the 11th before Chirinos hit a line drive to left field off Branden Kline (1-3), sending Gurriel home. The throw to the plate beat Gurriel, but catcher Chance Sisco bobbled it, allowing Gurriel to score.

Houston starter Gerrit Cole yielded four hits and three runs — one earned — in seven innings. He struck out a season-high 14 to give him an MLB-best 130 strikeouts.

Mariners 6, Angels 2

In Anaheim, Marco Gonzales earned his first victory since April 25 as Seattle defeated Los Angeles.

Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani was hitless in four at-bats.
