TORONTO (AP) Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees will have to wait at least one more day to achieve home run history and crack some bubbly.

Judge stayed at 60 home runs, one shy of Roger Maris' American League record, and the Yankees' bid to clinch the AL East stalled when Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit an RBI single in the 10th to give the Toronto Blue Jays a 3-2 win Monday night.

Judge led off the game with a single, then struck out twice and walked twice as New York's winning streak ended at seven. The Yankees (94-59) would've sealed the division with a win.


Elder blanks Nats; Braves 1 back of Mets

WASHINGTON (AP) Bryce Elder threw a six-hit shutout for his first career complete game, and the Atlanta Braves defeated Washington 8-0 Monday night to close within one game of the first-place New York Mets in the NL East and hand the Nationals their 100th loss of the season.

Matt Olson and Orlando Arcia hit two-run homers and Marcell Ozuna added a solo shot for Atlanta, which like New York has already clinched a playoff berth. Both teams have eight games remaining, including a head-to-head three-game series beginning Friday in Atlanta.


Orioles gain ground with rout of Red Sox

BOSTON (AP) Cedric Mullins homered on the second pitch of the game, Anthony Santander went deep twice and the Baltimore Orioles outslugged the Boston Red Sox 14-8 on Monday night to gain a little ground in the playoff race.

Gunnar Henderson hit a two-run homer and Mullins tripled in two runs for the Orioles (80-73), who moved within 3 1/2 games of idle Seattle for the final AL wild card.


Biden welcomes Braves to White House

WASHINGTON (AP) President Joe Biden said Monday the Atlanta Braves will be "forever known as the upset kings of October" for their improbable 2021 World Series win, as he welcomed the team to the White House for a victory celebration.

Biden called the Braves' drive an "unstoppable, joyful run." The team got its White House visit in with just over a week left before the 2022 regular season wraps up and the Major League Baseball playoffs begin again. The Braves trail the New York Mets by 1.5 games in the National League East but have clinched a wildcard spot for the MLB playoffs that begin Oct. 7. Chief Executive Officer Terry McGuirk said he hoped they'd be back to the White House again soon.


Suwinski's 2B sparks Pirates past Reds

PITTSBURGH (AP) Jack Suwinski hit a two-run double to key a four-run seventh inning, powering the Pittsburgh Pirates past the Cincinnati Reds 8-3 on Monday night.

Suwinski turned on a slider from Derek Law (2-1), sending it to right field. Fellow rookie Oneil Cruz, who opened the inning with his third of four straight singles, and Miguel Andujar scored to put Pittsburgh ahead 4-2.


Thomson leads Phils to brink of playoffs

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Rob Thomson has the sparse office decor of a manager who still has interim in his title. He also has the Philadelphia Phillies on the brink of their first playoff berth in 11 years.

Get there -- and end the longest postseason drought in the National League -- and maybe Thomson can hang a few more keepsakes. The ones already on the wall are mostly framed newspaper pages with boldface headlines of the greatest moments of the Phillies' last heyday, reminders of the success the franchise has yet to duplicate during the trying slog of a decade since 2011.


Castillo deal sets Mariners' rotation

SEATTLE (AP) In the middle of putting the finishing touches on the largest and most complex contract in franchise history, the Seattle Mariners began discussions about another impact deal.

Would newly acquired right-hander Luis Castillo be interested in talking about calling Seattle home for the long haul?

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Texas Rangers right-handed starter Dane Dunning underwent arthroscopic hip surgery Monday and the team said his availability to pitch in spring training will be determined by the progress of his rehab.

The Rangers will recall right-hander Tyson Miller from Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, when he is expected to pitch in the opener of a three-game series in Seattle. Right-hander Jesus Tinoco will pitch as an opener.


Marlins' Mattingly not returning in 2023

MIAMI (AP) Don Mattingly wants what's best for the Miami Marlins, what's best for him and what's best for his family.

And he decided that means it's time to move on.
