Bumgarner (8-3) gave up three hits in eight innings. Michael Morse hit a two-run homer, and Brandon Crawford had a three-run shot off loser Mike Leake (3-5).

• Cubs 7, Mets 4: In Chicago, Anthony Rizzo hit a tiebreaking homer and pitcher Travis Wood went deep and drove in three runs as the Cubs swept the three-game series over New York. Rizzo’s solo drive off Vic Black (1-1) with one out in the seventh gave Chicago a lead after New York’s Andrew Brown capped a four-run comeback with a two-run shot in the top half. Justin Grimm (2-2) got the win.

American League

• Yankees 2, Athletics 1: In New York, Masahiro Tanaka (9-1) tamed the highest-scoring team in the majors and New York stopped a four-game skid, ending the Athletics’ five-game winning streak. David Robertson worked the ninth for his 13th save in 15 chances.

• Rangers 8, Orioles 6: In Arlington, Texas, Rougned Odor had a leadoff single in the seventh and scored the tiebreaking run with the help of two errors by Baltimore shortstop J.J. Hardy as Texas avoided a three-game sweep. The Rangers blew an early 5-0 lead, but came back with the three-run seventh.

• Astros 8, Angels 5: In Houston, Jose Altuve and George Springer drove in two runs each during Houston’s four-run eighth inning. Altuve had two hits, including a two-run double in the eighth, and Springer finished with three RBIs for the Astros. Brad Peacock (2-4) allowed three runs and six hits with a strikeout in five innings.
