It was Sandoval's second career walk-off hit - both home runs against the Nationals - and San Francisco's sixth walk-off win this season.

• Cardinals 10, Padres 2: In San Diego, Daniel Descalso hit his first career grand slam and collected a career-high five RBIs, and Adam Wainwright won for the first time at Petco Park. Wainwright held San Diego to one run and four hits in 7 1/3 innings, struck out six and walked one.

• Rays 4, Blue Jays 3: In Toronto, Kelly Johnson and Desmond Jennings homered and Alex Cobb won for the first time in three starts. Cobb allowed one run and three hits in 6 1/3 innings for his first victory since May 5 at Colorado.

• Athletics 1, Rangers 0: In Arlington Texas, rookie right-hander Dan Straily pitched seven scoreless innings and Yoenis Cespedes homered as the Athletics won their fifth straight game. Straily gave up two singles while facing 22 batters, one over the minimum for his seven innings.

• Angels 12, Mariners 0: In Anaheim, Mike Trout hit for the cycle and drove in five runs, Josh Hamilton celebrated his 32nd birthday with a homer and a triple, and Howie Kendrick also went deep. Jerome Williams scattered six hits over eight innings, struck out six and walked two while helping send the Mariners to their season-high fifth straight loss.
