Teheran (1-1) allowed one run on five hits, one of them a solo homer from Odubel Herrera in the first inning.

One night after a 12-1 loss in the Bronx, the last-place Marlins (5-12) turned the tables to split the two-game series.

A day after topping the Mets with an eighth-inning rally from a five-run deficit, the Nationals never trailed.

Bryce Harper hit a startling, broken-bat homer early, then grounded a key single during a six-run surge in the eighth inning that sent Washington past NY.

Luis Castillo pitched 6 2/3 innings and added a run-scoring single as Cincinnati broke an eight-game losing streak with a win at Milwaukee.

Teheran (1-1) allowed one run, five hits and three walks with nine strikeouts in six innings.

Washington's Howie Kendrick homered leading off the ninth.

Martinez hit a two-run shot in the second, and Jeimer Candelario hit a tiebreaking triple in the fifth for Detroit.

Nola (1-1) gave up four hits, two runs and two walks in six innings. He struck out seven and walked three. However, deGrom was lifted with two on and one out, and four relievers could not stop the barrage.

Michael A. Taylor worked a bases-loaded walk to cap a six-run eighth inning by Washington, which stunned host NY. The Rockies have won five of six overall and are 8-2 in their last 10 games away from Coors Field. The Rangers acquired the left-hander from the Giants in December. Kiner-Falefa had four hits, including a double.

The slugger, who was traded to NY from the Miami Marlins in a blockbuster trade over the offseason, has three home runs this season, two of them coming in his first game in a Yankees uniform. Bryce Harper accounted for the Nationals' only run in the first seven innings with a broken-bat home run in the first. He has reached base in all 13 games he's played, the longest on-base streak to start a season for Toronto since Jose Bautista's 17-game run in 2016.

Stanton came to the plate again in the seventh with the Yankees leading 11-0, he struck out and he heard even more boos that time around.
