In Chicago, Carlos Sanchez singled home the winning run with two outs in the 10th inning to give Chicago a victory over Cleveland after a sparkling pitchers’ duel between aces Chris Sale and Corey Kluber.

With the score tied at 2 and two outs in the seventh, Gomez singled up the middle to score Luis Sardinas from second.

It was Familia’s first blown save in 14 chances — and the third consecutive time New York gave Harvey only one run of support.
Sam Tuivailala (0-1) walked Eric Campbell and Duda to open the 14th. Mayberry came through with the bases loaded and one out against closer Trevor Rosenthal.
Carlos Torres (2-2) pitched two innings to help the NL East leaders win their third in a row after a five-game skid. The Mets were the last major league team to play extra innings this season.
The Cardinals went zero for 11 with runners in scoring position.
Harvey matched a season high with nine strikeouts in running his scoreless innings streak to 16 and lowering his ERA to 1.98.
