Duval homers twice again to carry Fish over Cubbies
UNDATED (AP) — The Miami Marlins have added to the Chicago Cubs’ current skid.
Adam Duvall belted two-run homers in each of his first two at-bats before the Marlins completed an 11-1 thrashing of the Cubs. Duvall joined Derrek Lee in 2002 and Giancarlo Stanton in 2016 as the only Marlins with back-to-back multi-homer games.
Pablo López pitched one-hit ball over seven innings to help the Fish deal the Cubs their fifth loss in six games since a five-game winning streak.
Elsewhere in the majors:
— Francisco Lindor (lihn-DOHR’) had five RBIs on a pair of two-run homers and run-scoring single, guiding the Mets to a 5-1 victory in Game 1 of a twinbill in Washington. Lindor hadn’t driven in more than two runs in a game this season and entered the game hitting just .209 since signing an 11-year, $363 million contract. David Peterson threw a season-high 94 pitches but fell short of qualifying for the win, allowing one run and two hits in 4 2/3 innings.
— The Nationals gained a split of their twinbill as Jon Lester carried a shutout into the seventh inning of a 6-2 decision over the Mets. Lester gave up seven hits over six-plus innings of his first win as a Nat, blanking the NL East leaders until Jose Peraza’s two-run blast. Kyle Schwarber homered twice and had four RBIs for Washington.
— The Phillies rolled to a 13-6 win over the Giants behind Rhys Hoskins, who was 3-for-6 with a pair of homers and six RBIs. Ronald Torreyes (toh-RAY’-ahs) also homered and had three ribbies as Philadelphia moved back to .500. Five Phils relievers combined for 6 2/3 scoreless innings after Aaron Nola was tagged for six runs, including homers by Mike Yastrzemski (ya-STREHM’-skee) and Brandon Belt.
— Light-hitting Bobby Dalbec had three RBIs and was a double short of a cycle in the Red Sox’s 7-1 win at Kansas City. Dalbec singled in the second, put Boston ahead 2-1 in the fifth with his team-high third triple and hit a two-run homer in the ninth. J.D. Martinez hit a two-run homer and Martín Pérez allowed one run and three hits in five innings, helping Boston improve to a major league-best 23-11 on the road.
— Gio Urshela slammed a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning of the Yankees’ 7-5 comeback over the Athletics. Urshela stayed in the game despite a shard of a broken bat hitting an eye in the second inning. He also hit an RBI single as New York ended Oakland’s seven-game winning streak despite trailing 4-1 in the fifth inning.
— The Blue Jays rallied for a 10-7 win over the Orioles as Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit his major-league leading 23rd homer and later capped a ninth-inning rally with a go-ahead, two-run double. Marcus Semien homered twice for Toronto, which scored six runs in the ninth off relievers Paul Fry and Tyler Wells to end a five-game skid. Ryan Mountcastle recorded his first career three-homer game and Cedric Mullins had his second consecutive multihomer game for Baltimore.
— Michael Perez and Bryan Reynolds smacked three-run home runs in the seventh inning to rally the Pirates past the Indians, 6-3. Pittsburgh has won the first two games of the series after entering on a 10-game losing streak. Harold Ramirez went deep twice for Cleveland, which also received a round-tripper from Rene Rivera.
— Max Kepler scored the go-ahead run on a second consecutive wild pitch from John King in the seventh inning, sending the Twins to a 3-2 win over the Rangers. Former Texas slugger Nelson Cruz hit a tying two-run homer in the fourth, his team-leading 15th for Minnesota.
— The Cardinals-Braves game in Atlanta was postponed by rain and rescheduled as part of a day-night doubleheader on Sunday.
Tatis leaves game
UNDATED (AP) — Padres star shortstop Fernando Tatis (tah-TEES’) Jr. left Saturday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds after appearing to reinjure his left shoulder diving for an RBI single by Tyler Naquin (NAY’-kwihn) in the fifth inning.
Tatis dove to his right for the ground ball and extended his left arm as he landed. He immediately reached for his left shoulder, which he partially dislocated taking a violent swing against San Francisco on April 5
Around the majors:
— Twins center fielder Byron Buxton has been activated from the 10-day injured list and was the lineup against the Rangers after being sidelined since May 6 with a right hip strain. Buxton was second in the majors with a .370 batting average when he got hurt.
— Reliever Jacob Barnes was acquired by the Blue Jays from the Mets on for pitching prospect Troy Miller. Barnes was 1-1 with two saves and a 6.27 ERA over 19 relief appearances this season before being designated for assignment on Monday.
