Luis Robert swats his 35th homer in Chicago’s win. (+Cuban MLB Report)

Luis Robert went yard for the 35th time on the campaign, knocked in a run and also scored on an occasion in his five trips to the plate. The White Sox’s doubled-up Baltimore 10-5 and Robert now has 70 RBIs on the season. Oscar Colás also joined in on the act with two RBIs and two runs scored on the evening.

Randy Arozarena laced a tenth inning two-run single to lead Tampa to a 3-0 extra-inning win over Miami. In the first two games of this series the outfielder has drove in two runs and stolen two bases. The native of Pinar del Rio, Cuba with the two thefts now has three straight 20-20 seasons and hits .304 over his last 15 games.

Adolis García connected on a single in three at-bats, while driving in two runs via a bases loaded walk and a hit-by-a-pitch, but his best efforts could not save Texas from a 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Mets. García is tied for the American League lead in RBIs with 97.
