MLB Report: Chase Selseth shines in Angels debut


Chase Selseth threw six innings without goals in his first major league appearance, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 2-0 win at Oakland A on Friday.

Silseth, 21, of Double-A Rocket City was called up with the Angels needing an extra start ahead of Saturday’s double. In the eleventh round of the draft from the University of Arizona last year, Selseth (1-0) allowed only one hit—one by Elvis Andros’ third-round shot.

He walked twice and hit four while making 81 runs before turning the ball over the Angels’ game, which completed the knockout. Aaron Loeb (seventh set), Ryan Tebera (eighth) and Raziel Iglesias (ninth set, eighth save) threw each half without goals and finished the hitter twice.

Novice Daulton Jefferies (1-6) also went for six strong innings, but allowed Brandon Marsh’s RBI and Homer solo by Andrew Velazquez, which was enough for LA.

Royals 14, Rockies 10

Hunter Dozier hit five hits, Andrew Benentende and Ryan O’Hearn scored, and Kansas City beat Colorado in Denver.

Both Michael A. Taylor and Benintende on three strikes each, Salvador Perez and Wyatt Merrifield each scored two goals, while Dylan Coleman (1-1) scored a break to earn the victory for the royals.

Brendan Rodgers fleshed out one of his three hits, Sam Hilliard took two hits and went deep as well, CJ Cron finished with three hits and Ryan McMahon had two hits for Rocky.

Brewers 2, Marlins 1

Jes Peterson drew a rule-bound walk at the top of the ninth inning — the game’s only free pass — that Christian Yelich scored when Milwaukee defeated hosts Miami.

Peterson drew the four-pitch walk from Anthony Bender, who inherited a rule-laden jam from fellow loyalist Tanner Scott (0-1). Josh Hader scored the ninth goal without goals to save him 13. He is the first bowler in the history of the Major League to score 13 for 13 save chances to start a season.

The Marlins lost 10 of their 12 games. Eight of those 10 losses came in just one round. Pablo Lopez hit a career high with 11 penalties, including nine when changed. It allowed three hits, no walks and one run in seven rounds, and the league’s leading ERA rose slightly from 1.00 to 1.05.

Sailors 2, Mets 1

Ty France scored his first in Seattle and performed the RBI single in the eighth inning by defeating host New York.

The Mariners, who played at Citi Field for the first time since the park opened in 2009, have won just their fourth time in 12 games this month. The Mets, who have not lost a streak this season so far, have lost two of three.

Former Mets player Paul Sould (2-1), who hit the Starling Mart in the seventh inning before withdrawing from the three hits he faced in the eighth, won for Seattle. Sewald went 1-14 for New York from 2017-2020 but he’s 12-4 for Seattle.

Red Sox 7, Rangers 1

Nick Pevita allowed one run in seven innings, and the Bostonians took home the win in the opener of a three-game series in Arlington, Texas.

Xander Bogaerts got two hits and two RBIs while JD Martinez also got two hits to lead the Red Sox attack with 10 hits. Bivita (1-4) only missed three hits and walked one. Boston has won two of its past three games after losing five games in a row.

Dane Dunning (1-2) gave up five runs in six strokes and twice in 5 2/3 innings while hitting six. Rangers managed only four hits, three from Cole Calhoun, while falling for the second time in three competitions.

Tigers 4, Orioles 2

Eduardo Rodriguez made 6 innings 2/3 without goals, Miguel Cabrera made his 504th career home run and host Detroit beat Baltimore.

Rodriguez (1-2) allowed five hits and four walks while scoring three to score his first win since signing with Detroit as a free agent. Cabrera got double the RBI with Homer solo, while Spencer Torkelson got two hits and led on tour.

Orioles player Jordan Lyles (2-3) gave up four runs at six strokes in 5 and 2/3 runs. Three walked and fanned six. Baltimore’s Tre Mancini and Anthony Santander hit single eyebrows in the eighth inning.

Rays 5, Blue Jays 2

Manuel Margo and Francisco Mejia both earned RBI singles in the eighth inning, followed by Brandon Lowe with a triple-scorer as Tampa Bay beat Toronto in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The Blue Jays took their fourth loss in a row, spoiling a solid effort by starting bowler Kevin Gusman (3-2), who was charged with four runs (three earned) in five hits and one walk. Gussman hit eight.

Margot, who had missed the previous two games with a hamstring injury, broke the tie 2-2 when his streak between short strike and third base sprinter Vidal Brogan led. This was Margo’s 14th in May.

Phillies 12, Dodgers 10 (10)

Nick Castellanos scored a double in the 10th inning and led in three as visiting Philadelphia outperformed Los Angeles.

Bryce Harper had a home run of three hits, Bryson Stott had three RBIs, and Kyle Schwarber added a home run as Philadelphia improved to 4-1 on the seven-game West Coast road trip that started with a series in Seattle.

Justin Turner hit a home double in the ninth inning for the Dodgers to send the game into extra innings, and led in four runs. Chris Taylor was in attendance, too, and Austin Barnes scored three hits with Los Angeles, who have lost three games in a row for the first time this season.

Padres 11, Braves 6

Ha-Seong Kim hit a three-stroke rally to help visit the San Diego Rally after Atlanta in the opening three-game series.

Braves scored four goals in the sixth inning to advance 6-4, but Kim outflanked the fastball 2-0 from loyalist Will Smith in the seventh inning to put Padres back on top. San Diego put the goal down by four runs in the ninth inning, three of them coming in with a double kick from Trent Gresham.

The winning bowler was Luis Garcia (1-2), who threw one game goalless. Taylor Rogers earned four points in his 13th save. Smith (0-1) took the loss after hitting three runs in his only turn.

Twins 12, Guardians 8

Royce Lewis claimed a Grand Slam in his first home career, and brought three more Minnesota-strength twins to victory over Cleveland in Minneapolis.

Byron Buxton, Jorge Polanco and Gary Sanchez joined forces with Lewis in offensive tackle for Minnesota, who enjoyed the season’s highest scoring hit. Max Kepler added three hits and two RBIs.

Austin Hedges, Oscar Mercado and Andres Jimenez have submitted an application to the Guardians. Jose Ramirez finished 2-for-5 with two RBIs.

Giants 8, Cardinals 2

Mike Jastrzemsky, Evan Longoria and Kurt Casale led two rounds each as Visit San Francisco beat St. Louis for its sixth straight win.

Giants starting bowler Logan Webb (5-1) allowed three runs and three walks in six runs. He crossed out one.

Jordan Hicks (1-3) gave up three runs in three strokes and two lanes with three strokes in five runs as the Cardinals lost for the fifth time in six games. Paul Goldschmidt led on both of the Cardinals’ rounds with an RBI hitter and Homer solo while he extended his streak on base to 20 games.

Reds 8, Pirates 2

Brandon Drury drilled his team’s leading seventh visitor and drove in four cars while Mike Mustakas flew twice to lead Cincinnati abruptly over host Pittsburgh.

Cincinnati’s No. 1 player Tyler Mahley (2-4) beat Homer to the lead to allow him only two runs and five hits, and achieved a season-high eight and climbed once with the Reds, who won the third consecutive season. The Reds have won four of their five Buccaneers and six of their last seven matches overall.

Pittsburgh’s Mitch Keeler (0-5) was charged with five runs on five strikes in 4 2/3 innings, scored two goals and walked twice, losing his fifth in seven games this season. Keeler fell at age 1-4 against Cincinnati, with a 7.36 ERA in 10 career starts.

Yankees 10, White Sox 4

Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge, Joey Gallo and Josh Donaldson made 6 1/3 strong runs over Gerrit Cole, propelling New York to victory in Chicago.

The Yankees claimed their fifth straight win and won for the 17th time in 19 games overall. Cole (3-0) scattered three runs with six hits and one walk while hitting nine.

Gavin Sheets performed for the White Sox, who outplayed him 25-11 in the first two games of the series.

Astros 6, Nationals 1

Houston sealed three early rounds at home and rode a solid starting effort from Framber Valdez to win their eleventh game in a row by defeating hosts Washington in the opening game of a three-game streak.

Jose Altove’s single shot and Yuli Gouriel’s blast came in the first half of five rounds. Jordan Alvarez came third.

Washington has lost for the fourth time in its last five matches. The citizens did not score until the seventh inning in choosing Alcides Escobar’s player. This scoring opportunity originated from the advancement of Keibert Ruiz.

Diamondbacks 4, Cubs 3

Kittel-Marty went 3-for-4 with two doubles and scored by RBI and Josh Rojas for what proved to be a fourth-inning winning streak on Wild Field to lead Arizona over Chicago in Phoenix.

Geraldo Perdomo also had three hits for the Diamondbacks, who entered the game with a hit of .199 but finished the season with a 12 high hit. Zach Davis (2-1) took the win, allowing three runs in four strokes over 5 and 2/3 innings, and Mark Melancon made the ninth 1-2-3 in his seventh save.

Eldemaro Vargas scored three times, and Frank Schwendel added two goals for the Cubs, who lost for the seventh time in nine matches. Drew Smiley (1-4) gave up four runs in 10 strokes over six rounds.
