The New York Mets recorded two wins over the Yankees in MLB on Friday, while Max Scherzer dominated the Boston Red Sox.

The Mets extended the Yankees' losing streak to seven games with 6-4 and 4-3 victories.

Powered by a three-run homer from Pete Alonso, the Mets scored five runs in the sixth inning in the opening game.

In the second game, Amed Rosario hit a walk-off, two-run homer for the Mets.

The Red Sox had no answers for Scherzer, who led the Washington Nationals to a 10-2 win.

Scherzer struck out 11 and conceded just one run in six innings of work.



Walk-off wins for White Sox, Blue Jays

Yasmani Grandal crushed a walk-off homer to lift the Chicago White Sox past the Kansas City Royals 6-5. The White Sox are tied for the American League (AL) Central lead.

Randal Grichuk hit a two-run, walk-off homer for the Toronto Blue Jays, who edged the Baltimore Orioles 5-4.

Franmil Reyes starred for the Cleveland Indians. He went three-for-four, including a three-run homer, with five RBIs in a 14-2 thrashing of the St Louis Cardinals.

Ty France went three-for-four with four RBIs as the San Diego Padres beat the Colorado Rockies 10-4.


Poor Ponce de Leon

Daniel Ponce de Leon's start for the Cardinals lasted just 0.2 innings after he conceded four runs.


A's, Astros' powerful moment

After placing a Black Lives Matter shirt across home plate and observing a moment of silence on Jackie Robinson Day, the Oakland Athletics and Houston Astros chose not to play on Friday. It continued the players' protests against racial injustice.
