The Astros beat the A's 4-1 and Zack Greinke picks up his 200th career victory, joining CC Sabathia and Justin Verlander as active pitchers with 200 wins. That's one step closer to the Hall of Fame for Greinke, who has pretty similar career numbers to the just-elected Roy Halladay: Greinke: 200-122, 3.36 ERA, 125 ERA+, 65.5 WAR Halladay: 203-105, 3.38 ERA, 131 ERA+, 65.4 WAR

Pete Alonso smashes his 40th home run -- a new National League record for rookies, breaking Cody Bellinger's mark set in 2017. Next up: Mark McGwire's 49 from 1987 and then Aaron Judge's record of 52, also set in 2017. He's also one away from tying the Mets' franchise record of 41, shared by Todd Hundley and Carlos Beltran.
