Denver — Ichiro Suzuki tripled off the wall for his 3,000th hit in the major leagues, becoming the 30th player to reach the milestone as the Miami Marlins beat the Colorado Rockies, 10-7, on Sunday.

The 42-year-old Suzuki got his big hit in the seventh inning. He became the first player born in Japan to reach 3,000 hits and joined Paul Molitor as the only players to reach the mark with a triple.

Giancarlo Stanton hit his 24th homer and Christian Yelich and Mathis had three hits and three RBIs each for the Marlins. Nolan Arenado homered twice and drove in five runs for Colorado. Arenado leads the NL in home runs (29) and RBIs (87).

Yankees 3, Indians 2New York — Masahiro Tanaka rebounded from two rocky outings, Didi Gregorius homered and New York held off Cleveland after announcing that Alex Rodriguez will play his final game in pinstripes this week.

Mark Teixeira, two days since disclosing his own plans to retire at the end of the season, hit an RBI double and dove toward first base to complete a crucial play on defense. Dellin Betances got four outs for his second save as New York took two of three from the AL Central leaders.

Orioles 10, White Sox 2Chicago — Manny Machado became the second player in major league history to homer in the first, second and third innings, driving in a career-high seven runs in a victory over Chicago.

Cubs 3, Athletics 1Oakland, Calif. — Kyle Hendricks pitched into the eighth inning for his fifth win since June and Chicago beat Oakland to complete a three-game sweep.

Kris Bryant and Jorge Soler homered off A’s starter Sean Manaea (3-7). Bryant’s home run was his 27th this season, one more than the two-time All-Star had in 2015 when he was the NL’s rookie of the year.

Nationals 1, Giants 0Washington — Tanner Roark and the Washington bullpen outdueled Madison Bumgarner, and Wilson Ramos homered to lift the Nationals over San Francisco in a matchup of NL division leaders.

Washington won twice in the three-game series. Last weekend, the Giants took two of three at home.

Daniel Hudson (2-2) won by getting the final out in the fifth in relief of starter Archie Bradley.

Mets 3, Tigers 1Detroit — Neil Walker hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the top of the ninth, and New York beat Detroit to avoided a series sweep.

The Mets were victimized by some bad luck when the Tigers tied it with back-to-back infield singles in the seventh, but after escaping the eighth thanks to a Detroit baserunning blunder, New York retook the lead when Walker went deep off Francisco Rodriguez (1-2).
