Yelich's 3 homers lift Brewers past Cardinals, 10-7

Raisel Iglesias (0-3) walked pinch-hitter David Freese leading off before Pederson homered to right field, pointing into the Dodgers dugout and thumping his chest as he left the box.

Retired broadcaster Vin Scully got Dodger Stadium buzzing with a surprise pregame appearance to celebrate Jackie Robinson Day.

After Martin Perez finished six innings in his first start for the Twins with only one run allowed and Ryne Harper struck out two batters in a perfect seventh, left-hander Adalberto Mejia was summoned for the eighth with all righties due up for the Blue Jays.

The Indians rebounded from being swept last weekend by Kansas City thanks to another strong outing from Bauer, a key out from reliever Adam Cimber and a couple of big hits off starter Yusei Kikuchi (0-1).

Cimber, who went to high school in nearby Puyallup and played college ball at Washington, struck out Mitch Haniger with the bases loaded.

The Mariners rallied for three runs in the eighth on consecutive homers by Edwin Encarnacion and Omar Narvaez to extend Seattle’s record streak to 19 games with a long ball to begin the season.
