Andy Ibáñez goes yard and knocks in two in Detroit’s win. (+Cuban MLB Report)

Andy Ibáñez went yard for the 11th time amongst his two hits, knocked in two runs and scored twice, but his best efforts couldn’t prevent Detroit from falling to 6-5 to Cincinnati. The native of the Isle of Youth is hitting .318 in his last 7 games.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr swatted two hits, drove in a run and scored on another occasion to raised his average to .258 in Arizona’s 7-4 loss to the Mets. The young slugger now has 74 RBIs on the season and is only 10 away from setting a career mark.

J.D. Martínez drove in two runs via a two-run back-breaking single in the eighth inning to do his part in the Dodgers 11-2 thrashing of the Padres. The Cuban-American is hitting .348 in his last seven games and has also driven in seven runs over that span.

Carlos Rodón tossed five innings of four-hit, one-run ball to secure his third victory of the season. The lefty fanned nine and watched his ERA fall to 6.14 on the season in the Yankees’ 4-1 win over their arch rival Redsox. The flamethrower has struck out 50 in 51 ⅓ innings on the campaign.
