Nola nears cycle as Gonzales sets milestone as M’s top Pirates 6-0
Austin Nola was a triple shy of the cycle. The Mariners hit three home runs. And Marco Gonzales set a personal record as Seattle beat Pittsburgh last night 6-nothing…
Nola, a 29-year old rookie, was 3-for-4 with a home run and an RBI. Omar Narvaez was also 3-for-4 with a home run and 2-RBI’s to back a stellar performance by Gonzales.
The former AppleSox set a personal milestone, earning his 16th win by going 7-innings and allowing no runs on 6-hits with 4-strikeouts. Gonzales also got a base hit, his 5th as a Major Leaguer. Of course, AppleSox fans remember Marco getting 27-hits in 2010, including a home run in the playoffs.

Yankees and Astros lead Majors with 99 wins
Also in the American League West last night as we check the Les Schwab Scoreboard…
Gleyber Torres hit a 3-run home run and Yankee pitchers struck out 13 Angels as New York topped L-A 8-nothing. It was the Yankee’s 99th win of the season, tying them with Houston for most wins in the Majors.
Speaking of the Astros, they beat the Rangers 4-1 with Justin Verlander nothing his 19th win of the season. Yuli Gurriel, Alex Bregman and Yordan Alvarez each homered for Houston.
In Oakland, Matt Olson’s tape-measure blast tied it and Seth Brown’s RBI-double won it in the bottom of the 7th as the A’s beat Kansas City 2-1. Olson’s 35th home run went 450-feet into center field. The A’s are now two games in front of Tampa Bay for the 1st Wild Card playoff spot in the American League. The Rays lost while Cleveland won, so the Indians are just a half-game out.
