MLB Sunday scores, highlights, live team updates, news: Astros stretch winning streak to 11 games

It's Sunday, and that means a full 15-game slate of baseball action, including one of the game's most historic rivalries in the nightcap. Here is everything you need to know about Sunday's MLB action.

Sunday's scores

Astros win 11th straight

The longest active winning streak in baseball belongs to the Astros. They won their 11th straight game Sunday and they've outscored their opponents 81-40 in those 11 games. The 11-game streak is the longest by any team so far this season.

Believe it or not, the 'Stros actually trailed 4-3 heading into the eighth inning. That's when the offense went to work. Carlos Correa smacked a game-tying homer, then Evan Gattis and Marwin Gonzalez drove in runs to take the lead.

The streak moved the Astros into first place in the AL West by 1 1/2 games.

Teheran dominates on Father's Day again

One day after being activated off the disabled list, Julio Teheran twirled a gem for the Braves. He struck out 11 in six no-hit innings against the Padres.

Teheran threw 95 pitches, which was enough to get him out of the game in his first start back from a thumb contusion that cost him two weeks. Reliever Shane Carle allowed a one-out single in the seventh inning to end the no-hit bid.

For Teheran, dominating on Father's Day is nothing new. Sunday was his fourth career Father's Day start and he's yet to allow an earned run.

Too bad Teheran has to wait another year to make his next Father's Day start.

Orioles finally get 20th win

Welcome to the 20-win club, Orioles. Baltimore snapped their nine-game losing streak Sunday thanks largely to utility man Jace Peterson, who drove in four runs against the Marlins. Five O's relievers combined to throw three shutout innings in relief of Dylan Bundy.

Coming into Sunday's action every team in baseball had at least 22 wins except the Orioles, who were 19-50. Now they're 20-50. Ouch.

Mariners, Red Sox split series

The first three games of the Red Sox-Mariners series were decided by one run. That was not the case on Sunday. Instead, the Red Sox jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the third inning, and while the Mariners closed the gap to 5-2 in the fifth, Boston was able to score four more over the course of the seventh and eighth innings, resulting in a 9-3 victory.

The Red Sox were led by four multi-hit performances. Andrew Benintendi notched three singles; Xander Bogaerts hit his 12th homer of the year; Mitch Moreland had two singles; and Rafael Devers hit his 11th home run and drove in three runs. Jackie Bradley Jr. also homered.

On the mound, the Red Sox received a quality start from Eduardo Rodriguez. He permitted two runs on six hits and a walk over six innings. He also struck out nine batters on 113 pitches.

Mets rally in ninth

The Mets seemed well on their way to another disappointing loss on Sunday, trailing 3-1 with two outs in the ninth inning.

Then something unexpected happened: Jose Reyes reached base on a bunt single. Then another unexpected thing happened: Jose Bautista laced an RBI double. Then another: Brandon Nimmo homered, giving the Mets a 4-3 lead. Then another: Asdrubal Cabrera homered, making it 5-5.

Then something expected happened: Robert Gsellman shut the door on the Diamondbacks, giving the Mets their second consecutive victory and helping them avoid falling 10 games below .500.

Rockies bullpen blows certain win

Earlier in the week, we wrote about how the Rockies' bullpen had been a big disappointment this season. On Sunday, they lived up to the reputation.

Starter Jon Gray didn't have a good outing, permitting six runs (five earned) in five innings. But from there Jake McGee and Bryan Shaw combined for five outs while allowing three runs. Later, closer Wade Davis gave up two hits and four hits while blowing a three-run lead. Keep in mind: the Rockies guaranteed the trio more than $100 million over the winter to shut down games.

Expect to hear that number a lot until the three prove up to the task.

Yankees hold 72nd annual Old Timers' Day

Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees held their 72nd annual Old Timers' Day, during which players from the past convened at the ballpark for a celebration of the team's history. Andy Pettitte was among this year's first time Old Timers. Here's his introduction:

Others like Whitey Ford, Reggie Jackson, David Cone, and Paul O'Neill were in attendance as well. So was the recently retired Nick Swisher, who swatted a home run during the Old Timers Game. Yes, the Old Timers actually play a game.

Old Timers' Day is a fun day -- and a long day -- at the ballpark. No other team can pull off something like this.

Once the Old Timers' Day festivities over, the Yankees were unable to complete the four-game sweep of the Rays. Matt Duffy singled in two runs in the second inning and New York's bats couldn't solve Wilmer Font and various relievers. New York is still 13-4 in their last 17 games and they're 14-1-2 in their last 17 series, if you can believe that.
