MILWAUKEE (AP) Andrew McCutchen homered twice, Hunter Renfroe also went deep and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 on Thursday to split the four-game series.

McCutchen had three RBIs for his 19th career multi-homer game and first since June 1, 2021, when he also hit a pair for the Philadelphia Phillies in a 17-3 blowout of the Cincinnati Reds. His homers on Thursday were a solo shot in the first inning and a two-run blast in the third.

Renfroe, who went 3 for 3, added a two-run homer in the fifth to help the Brewers build a 5-0 lead. Renfroe also singled in the third and doubled off the center-field wall in the eighth.


Mets turn to deGrom in finale vs. Braves

Atlanta's Max Fried would like to forget his most recent start against the Mets, but New York's Jacob deGrom has nothing but good memories from his last outing against the Braves.

The two standouts will oppose each other on Thursday night in the finale of a four-game series in Atlanta.


Fresh off thrilling win, Yanks host Jays

As midnight struck, Josh Donaldson gave the New York Yankees the type of win that highlighted their ascent to the best record in the American League earlier this season.

After Donaldson hit a grand slam in the 10th inning to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-7 on Wednesday, the Yankees hope momentum from the dramatic homer will continue Thursday night when they host the Toronto Blue Jays in the opener of a four-game series.


Pujols hits PH slam, Cards rout Rockies

ST. LOUIS (AP) Albert Pujols launched a pinch-hit grand slam and drove in five runs, Adam Wainwright pitched seven sharp innings and the St. Louis Cardinals routed the Colorado Rockies 13-0 Thursday for a three-game sweep.

"We're playing right now, I think the way that we were expecting ourselves to play early in the year," Pujols said. "We didn't, but we had some glimpses here and there. Now we're playing the best baseball we have played all year long."


Lowe helps power Rangers over A's

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Nathaniel Lowe hit a three-run home run, Jonah Heim drove in two runs against his former team and the Texas Rangers beat the Oakland Athletics 10-3 on Thursday.

Texas GM Young moves on without Daniels

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Chris Young said he knew when joining the Texas Rangers as general manager in 2020 that his partnership with president of baseball operations Jon Daniels might not go beyond this year.

The departure of Daniels was no less emotional for Young, or jarring considering it came just two days after they sat next to each other in a news conference explaining their decision to fire manager Chris Woodward.


Rockies' Senzatela, Blackmon leave early

ST. LOUIS (AP) Rockies starting pitcher Antonio Senzatela and right fielder Charlie Blackmon both left Colorado's game against the St. Louis Cardinals in the second inning Thursday because of leg injuries.

Senzatela crumpled to the ground after awkwardly attempting to cover first base on an infield single by Brendan Donovan. Senzatela had to be helped off the field and was replaced by Austin Gomber.


Angels star Trout planning Friday return

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Three-time AL MVP Mike Trout intends to return to the Los Angeles Angels' lineup on Friday in Detroit.

Trout hasn't played since July 12, missing the Angels' past 30 games with an injury to his upper back and ribcage. He faced live pitching Monday and worked out Wednesday, leaving him confident he will be able to play against the Tigers when the Angels open a 10-game trip.
