MLB round-up: Smith lands walk-off homer for Dodgers, Cubs comeback, Altuve homers twice
Will Smith hit a three-run home run to clinch a dramatic win for the Los Angeles Dodgers over the San Francisco Giants.
Will Smith hit a walk-off home run as the world champion Los Angeles Dodgers claimed a come-from-behind 8-6 win over the San Francisco Giants in MLB on Tuesday.
With the Dodgers trailing 6-5 at the bottom of the ninth inning with two runners on base, Smith homered off Tyler Rogers.
Smith's three-run home run was his third career walk-off homer and first since 2019.
It capped a thrilling game where the Giants had led 6-1 after their fifth inning at bat, before the Dodgers stormed back with three runs in the sixth.
Dodgers pitcher Josiah Gray had seven strikeouts on the mound across four innings.
But there were a few concerns for the Dodgers, too, with Max Muncy and Justin Turner leaving the game with shoulder and knee issues respectively.
Altuve doubles up
Jose Altuve homered twice as the Houston Astros won 9-3 against the Cleveland Indians. Leading off, Altuve hit a solo home run, with his second homer marking his sixth career multi-home run game and second of the 2021 season.
Freddie Freeman hit a solo go-ahead home run in the sixth inning, his 22nd homer of the season, to help the Atlanta Braves to a 2-1 victory over the San Diego Padres.
Estevan Florial homered in his third career game as the New York Yankees won 6-4 against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Reyes and Cardinals let it slip
Alex Reyes normally has a good record closing games out, but he walked two batters after the St Louis Cardinals had held a 6-1 lead heading into the ninth inning. The Chicago Cubs got going and Ian Happ drove in two as they produced a six-run ninth to win 7-6.
Abreu crushed a mammoth
Jose Abreu produced something special for the Chicago White Sox with his three-run home run sealing a 9-5 triumph over the Minnesota Twins. Abreu has hit safely in eight of his last nine games, with five doubles, three home runs and 12 RBI.
