Tigers rookie Parker Meadows slams walk-off HR

Rookie Parker Meadows hit a triple homer – the first of his career – with two outs in the ninth and handed the host Detroit Tigers an impressive 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Friday.

Meadows’ long ball against Astros closer Ryan Pressly (3-4) wasted seven no-hit innings through Houston starter Framber Valdez. Javier Baez leveled the game with a runs-scoring single before Meadows, who was called up by Triple-A Toledo earlier in the week and was in his fourth major league game, put a slider over the right field wall.

Valdez, who had five walks and six strikeouts, was removed after 114 throws. He threw a complete no-hitter four starts ago on August 1 against Cleveland. Houston, who have lost six of their last eight games, have managed just one goal.

Detroit starter Matt Manning conceded just one undeserved run and one hit in 6 1/3 innings. Manning, who did not make a batsman, retired with an apparent back injury. Alex Lange (6:3) was relieved to win.

LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with a walk, scored three goals and hit solo homers in the fifth and eighth innings – his first multi-homer game since 2021. Gleyber Torres (two runs) and Anthony Volpe had two hits each as Yankees won for the fifth time in eleven encounters with the Rays.

Tampa Bay’s Zach Eflin (13-8) allowed two runs from seven hits. He set season-high strikeouts (11) and pitches (103) while running one. Yandy Diaz rocked a solo home run, but the Rays hit just four and saw their four-game winning streak come to an end.
