Best of MLB: Wright Plays Hero in Mets' Comeback Win Over Brewers

NEW YORK  -- David Wright singled home the winning run on a 3-0 pitch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the New York Mets rallied past the Milwaukee Brewers 5-4 on Saturday.

Curtis Granderson hit his latest leadoff homer for the Mets, and Yoenis Cespedes tied the score in the sixth with a two-run shot that chased rookie starter Zach Davies.

That got Jacob deGrom off the hook after the right-hander left trailing 4-1. The 2014 NL Rookie of the Year, winless in four starts since winning his first three, struck out seven and walked three while throwing 100 pitches in five innings.

Joe Kelly tosses 6 2/3 hitless innings, Betts homers twice in 9-1 Red Sox win
BOSTON  -- Joe Kelly pitched no-hit ball for 6 2/3 innings, Mookie Betts had a grand slam and a solo homer, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 9-1 on Saturday.

Jackie Bradley Jr. extended his majors' best hitting streak to 26 games with an infield single. Dom DiMaggio owns the Red Sox record with a 34-game string in 1949.

Kelly (2-0) came off the 15-day disabled list earlier in the day after being out with a right shoulder impingement since April 20. He shut down the Indians until Juan Uribe broke up the no-hit bid with a double to the right-center gap with two outs in the seventh. Manager John Farrell immediately pulled Kelly at 104 pitches. Kelly left to a long loud ovation.

Carlos Santana homered for the Indians, who had won a season-best five in a row (see full recap).

Yankees top Athletics for season-high 4th straight win
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Starlin Castro broke out of a slump with three hits, Carlos Beltran singled twice to keep up his recent tear and the New York Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics 5-1 on Saturday to win their season-high fourth straight.

Masahiro Tanaka pitched seven innings to win Joe Girardi's 1,500th game as a manager. Tanaka (2-0) allowed one run on five hits and had four strikeouts for his first victory since April 12.

Castro was in a 3-for-22 funk before he reached on an infield single as part of New York's four-run fourth. The veteran second baseman also singled in the fifth, and then doubled in Ronald Torreyes for an insurance run in the seventh.

Beltran had an RBI single in the fourth to stay hot. He is batting .391 (9 for 23) with eight RBIs over the past six games.

All the runs came off Oakland rookie starter Sean Manaea (1-2) (see full recap).
