Major League Baseball caps: Stanton continues home-run binge for Marlins

Major League Baseball caps: Stanton continues home-run binge for Marlins

Javy Guerra (1-0) earned his first victory since 2014 with two scoreless innings, and Odrisamer Despaigne pitched a ideal ninth for his first big league save. "This was one I hadn't tried yet, and it has been pretty good". He left for a pinch-hitter in the seventh with the game still scoreless.

Mike Dunn (5-1) got the win and Greg Holland closed for his 35th save. He called Stanton incredible, but said the team knows Stanton can not hit a home run every night and they need to score runs other ways as well.

Sanchez started the Yankees' comeback with a sacrifice fly in the fourth against Rafael Montero.

Right-hander Kyle Barraclough pitched the eighth inning in his first game back from the disabled list, but gave up a home run to Ryder Jones. He's had a good season so far and right now he is hitting the ball like insane.

Hicks, who returned last week from an oblique injury, homered against Hansel Robles (7-4) leading off the eighth, his career-best 12th homer. With 20 homers, Sanchez matched his total in his rookie season past year.

Zack Greinke proved to be Arizona's stopper once again, shutting out slumping Houston over 6-2/3 innings as the Diamondbacks beat the Astros.

The Phillies, losers of four of their past five, squandered rookie Rhys Hoskins' first two major league homers. Bumgarner comes off of a 3-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs where he gave up the lone run on five hits while whiffing seven in seven innings. Fernando Rodney worked around an infield single in the ninth for his 27th save.

Run-scoring doubles by Ketel Marte and J.D. Martinez were the difference. He's homered in five straight games. The Indians first baseman went 3 for 3 with two home runs, two walks and three RBIs in Cleveland's 8-1 win over the Twins. Rafael Devers had two and Andrew Benintendi one.

Even though Bumgarner has shown no ill-effects from a shoulder injury that kept him out for almost three months this season, he couldn't channel the dominance he found in his previous three outings against the Marlins on Tuesday But thanks to a Giants' offense that has rarely offered its ace quality run support this season, Bumgarner exited the game with an opportunity to pick up his first road victory of the season. Both the pitching and hitting contributed with Fish starter Adam Conley giving up all three runs on six hits and three free passes through 6.1 innings of work.
