There were three walk-off wins in MLB on Wednesday, but only the Colorado Rockies won with a game-ending hit.

Rockies catcher Michael McKenry blasted a two-out, two-run homer off Mariners rookie Mayckol Guaipe in the 11th to see the Rockies win 7-5 over Seattle.

Avisail Garcia's bases-loaded walk in the 10th scored Adam Eaton to give the Chicago White Sox a 6-5 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Los Angeles Angels were one strike away from losing for the 11th time in their past 13 games before completing an incredible comeback against the Cleveland Indians for a 4-3 victory.

The Angels' C.J. Cron delivered a two-out, two-run single to tie the game at three before Cody Allen's final pitch of the game got away from catcher Roberto Perez, allowing pinch-runner Taylor Featherston to score the winning run with a head-first slide.

The Baltimore Orioles needed extra innings to beat the Oakland Athletics 7-3 through 10, the Arizona Diamondbacks were 11-4 winners against the Washington Nationals and the Boston Red Sox edged the New York Yankees 2-1.

The Pittsburgh Pirates overcame the Chicago Cubs 7-5, the Los Angeles Dodgers got past the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 and the Toronto Blue Jays claimed a 9-7 win over the Minnesota Twins.

The Kansas City Royals went down 2-1 to the Detroit Tigers, the New York Mets beat the Miami Marlins 8-6, the San Francisco Giants were 6-1 winners over the Atlanta Braves, the St Louis Cardinals needed 13 innings to get past the Cincinnati Reds 4-3, the Texas Rangers downed the Houston Astros 4-3 and the San Diego Padres suffered an 8-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

IMPACT PLAYERS
Chris Davis, Baltimore Orioles:
Davis hit a grand slam in the 10th inning - the sixth slam of his career - to lead the Orioles to a road win over the A's.

Daniel Murphy, New York Mets: Murphy went three-for-four with two runs scored and a walk as the Mets won their sixth consecutive game and opened a two-game lead on the Nationals in the NL East.

Asdrubal Cabrera, Tampa Bay Rays: Cabrera was four-for-five with a double, three singles and two RBIs. He is currently riding an eight-game hitting streak.

KEY INJURIES
Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman is tentatively slated to start a rehab assignment on August 21. That would give him a couple of weeks to get up to speed before the minor league season ends, at which point he might join the Blue Jays' bullpen.

An MRI on Giants second baseman Joe Panik's back showed only inflammation. He was placed on the disabled list on Monday.

Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison (thumb) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, while his team-mate Jordy Mercer (knee) will likely start his on Friday.

REACTIONS
"In my mind, before [the trades], I was like yeah, I need to rush it because I want to be in the field," injured Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera (calf) said via MLB.com. "But right now, everybody's talked to me and told me [to slow down] because they see I want to push it. They see me and say, 'No, calm down and try to get better, be smart.'"

FACTS OF THE DAY
Luis Severino is the first starter in Yankees history to allow two or fewer batters to reach base safely in his MLB debut, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

Two years ago on Wednesday, Alex Rodriguez was suspended 211 games for his involvement with Biogenesis. He later appealed, and his final sentence was set at 162 games.

SURPRISE PERFORMERS
Good: Paul Goldschmidt ended a 0-for-15 slump by going three-for-five with two stolen bases.

Bad: Twins starter Tyler Duffey lasted just two innings, allowing six runs on five hits against the Blue Jays, including a grand slam to Jose Bautista.

LOOKING AHEAD
Zack Greinke's Dodgers are at the Phillies, the Cubs host the Giants and the Astros head to the Athletics.
