Kris Bryant hit a run-scoring double in the 10th inning as the visiting San Francisco Giants rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-4 Thursday afternoon.

The Giants trailed 4-0 going into the ninth before Bryant doubled and scored their first run of the game. San Francisco ended up tying the score before winning it in the 10th.

The comeback marked the first time San Francisco won a game in which it trailed by four runs going into the ninth inning since beating the Atlanta Braves 13-12 in 11 innings on April 18, 1993.

Arizona's bullpen wasted a terrific outing from Merrill Kelly, who gave up three hits over eight shutout innings.

Tigers 8, Red Sox 1

Robbie Grossman's leadoff home run set the tone and Detroit starter Tarik Skubal tossed five scoreless innings to help host Detroit top Boston in the rubber match of a three-game series.

Victor Reyes (2-for-4) totaled three RBIs and Jonathan Schoop (2-for-5) drove in two for Detroit, which pounded out 13 hits to bounce back from a 4-1 loss Wednesday following its 4-2 series opening victory. Skubal (7-10) struck out four while allowing just five hits and walking one.

Detroit has won six of its last nine games and is 13-7 since the All-Star break.

Phillies 7, Nationals 6

Rhys Hoskins snapped a tie with a two-out, two-run double off Kyle Finnegan in the ninth inning to lift Philadelphia past host Washington, completing a four-game sweep.

J.T. Realmuto hit a two-run double with two outs in the ninth to tie the game at 5. Hoskins finished with three hits while Bryce Harper homered for the Phillies. Odubel Herrera added two hits for the Phillies, who won their fifth in a row.

The Phillies are just half a game behind the New York Mets in the National League East. Phillies starter Aaron Nola struggled through five innings as he allowed five hits and five runs. Nola struck out seven and walked three.

Marlins 4, Mets 2

Jorge Alfaro hit a tie-breaking single in the bottom of the eighth inning, leading host Miami to a win over New York.

Mets shortstop Javier Baez, acquired from the Chicago Cubs last week, went 0-for-5 with five strikeouts, stranding eight runners.

The Mets, who have a slim lead in the National League East, lost three of four games in the series against the last-place Marlins. Reliever Jeurys Familia (5-2) allowed three runs in the eighth to take the loss as the Mets continued a slump that dropped them to 21-27 in their past 48 games.

Rockies 6, Cubs 5

Trevor Story hit two home runs, Connor Joe and Sam Hilliard also went deep and Colorado beat Chicago in Denver.

The Rockies built an early lead by scoring single runs in the first four innings against starter Jake Arrieta. That included Story's solo homer in the first inning and Joe's third of the season, also a solo shot, in the second.

Chicago wiped that out with four runs in the fifth, but the Rockies came right back in their half of the fifth. Brendan Rodgers led off with a single and Story hit his second homer of the day and 15th of the season to put Colorado ahead for good.

Angels 5, Rangers 0

Dylan Bundy threw 6 1/3 shutout innings in his best outing of the season, and Los Angeles beat Texas to take the final three games of the four-game series.

Bundy (2-8) gave up three hits, struck out six and walked two in his second start since being demoted to the bullpen for a month. He improved to 6-2 in his career against the Rangers with a 3.12 ERA.

Adam Eaton hit his first homer with the Angels, David Fletcher had two hits and Jose Iglesias added two RBIs for Los Angeles.
