Bosox clinch playoff berth…Astros hang on…Dbacks close gap…Cubs blank Brewers…Braves pad lead

BOSTON — Pinch-hitter Brock Holt belted a go-ahead, three-run homer in the seventh and the Boston Red Sox became the first team to wrap up a playoff berth by rallying to beat the Blue Jays, 7-2. Boston trailed 2-0 until Steve Pearce laced an RBI triple and Holt followed with a blast. Bosox ace Chris Sale pitched a scoreless first inning in his first start since going on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation, allowing one hit while striking out two.

DETROIT (AP) — Jose Altuve (al-TOO’-vay) homered on the opening pitch before Tony Kemp and Tyler White added two-run homers to give the Houston Astros a 5-0 lead by the fourth inning of a 5-4 win at Detroit. Houston’s bullpen came through with five shutout innings after Freddy Valdez was reached for four runs in the fourth, including a three-run blast by JaCoby Jones. The Astros continue to lead the AL West by three games over the Athletics.

DENVER (AP) — Ketel (KEH’-tul) Marte collected four RBIs, including a tiebreaking, two-run triple in the sixth inning of the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 6-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies in Denver. Marte’s major league-leading 11th triple was followed by a two-run single that capped the scoring in the eighth. The Rockies still lead the NL West by 1 ½ games over the Los Angeles Dodgers, with the DBacks just 2 ½ games off the pace.

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs’ lead in the NL Central is back to two games over Milwaukee after Jose Quintana pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning of a 3-0 shutout of the Brewers. Victor Caratini drove in two runs with a single and a double to help the Cubs win for the third time in eight games since Labor Day. Jhoulys Chacin (zhoo-LEES shah-SEEN’) pitched five innings of one-hit ball but made a critical throwing error in a two-run second that sent the Brewers to their second loss in nine games.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Mike Foltynewicz (fohl-tih-NAY’-vihch) tossed a six-hitter and the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves moved 6 1/2 games in front of Philadelphia by downing the Giants, 4-1 in San Francisco. Foltynewicz retired 13 straight at one point and blanked the Giants until Brandon Crawford’s RBI single with two out in the ninth. Charlie Culberson hit a two-run homer after entering the game for Johan Camargo, who left with a tight left groin.
