Lourdes Gurriel Jr collected two hits and drove in four runs via a grand slam in four trips to the plate. The outfielder also went yard for the and now hits .274 on the season. The youngest of the Gurriel Clan is making a great case for an All-Star game birth as a reserve. Arizona downed the Angels 6-2.
Randy Arozarena and Yandy Díaz combined for three hits and drove in four runs, the two Cubans also scored three times in Tampa Bay’s victory over 15-4. Arozarena and Díaz who are All-Star Game starters hit .316 and .288 respectively.
Andy Ibáñez deposited his eighth ball of the year in stands and knocked in two runs, but his best efforts couldn’t save Detroit from a 8-5 defeat to the Rockies. Ibáñez hits a solid .278 in his last 15 games.
