Just a few weeks after the Cavaliers brought home an NBA title, the Cleveland Indians have become the most unstoppable team in baseball. Verlander appeared to be on his way to at least a decent start until the fifth inning. After two outs, Francisco Lindor singled, extending the inning.
Chris Davis hit his seventh career grand slam, and the Baltimore Orioles completed an unprecedented sweep of Tampa Bay with a 12-5 victory Sunday that extended the Rays' losing streak to 11 games. Jonathan Schoop and Mark Trumbo also homered for the AL East leaders, whose 31-13 home record is the best in the majors. Baltimore has won five straight to climb a season-high 15 games over .500 (45-30). Davis hit an opposite-field drive to left after the Orioles used a walk and two singles to load the bases with no outs in the first inning against Drew Smyly (2-8). That sent Baltimore to its first four-game sweep in a rivalry that began in 1998. The Orioles are 7-2 against Tampa Bay this season, 6-0
