National League

• Nationals 5, Phillies 2: In Washington, Jordan Zimmermann became the National League's first eight-game winner, and the Nationals followed a tough road trip with a winning start to a homestand. Zimmermann (8-2) allowed two runs and six hits with no walks over seven innings - actually raising his ERA to 1.71.

• Reds 7, Cubs 4: In Cincinnati, Joey Votto extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a homer, and Ryan Hanigan and Brandon Phillips also homered, powering the Reds to their fourth straight win. The Reds have won 12 of their past 15 games, surging to a season-high 12 games over .500.

• Brewers 2, Pirates 1: In Milwaukee, Marco Estrada gave up one run over seven innings and Alex Gonzalez had a two-run double, leading the Brewers. Estrada (4-2) retired the first 14 Pittsburgh batters he faced before allowing a two-out bloop single to left field by Neil Walker in the fifth.

• Rockies 5, Giants 0: In San Francisco, Michael Cuddyer homered and hit a two-run double after coming off the disabled list, and Tyler Chatwood beat San Francisco for the second time in seven days.

• Cardinals 7, Dodgers 0: In Los Angeles, Lance Lynn pitched two-hit ball over six innings, and David Freese and Allen Craig each homered and drove in three runs, helping St. Louis win its third straight.

• Mets 5, Braves 5, susp.: In New York, rain stopped the game with the score tied after eight innings. The teams will resume play in the top of the ninth at 3:10 p.m. today. The regularly scheduled game is set to start at 4:15 p.m.

American League

• Tigers 6, Twins 0: In Detroit, Anibal Sanchez took a no-hitter into the ninth inning before Minnesota's Joe Mauer broke it up with a one-out single, and that was the only hit the Detroit right-hander allowed in the Tigers' victory. Sanchez fell two outs shy of his second career no-hitter.

• Yankees 9, Rays 4: In St. Petersburg, Fla., Brett Gardner, Lyle Overbay and Jayson Nix each drove in two runs as New York won. Yankees right fielder Curtis Granderson was hit on the left hand by a pitch, which X-rays showed a broken knuckle on his pinkie finger. New York manager Joe Girardi said that there was no official timeline for how long Granderson will be sidelined, but indicated it could be a minimum of four weeks.

• Red Sox 8, Indians 1: In Boston, John Lackey allowed two hits in seven innings and Mike Carp hit a three-run homer. It was the second straight strong performance by Lackey, who missed all last season following Tommy John elbow surgery.

• Orioles 10, Blue Jays 6: In Toronto, Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 16th home run and Nick Markakis had three hits and three RBIs. Sabino High grad J.J. Hardy, Danny Valencia and Adam Jones all went deep for Baltimore.

• Angels 5, Royals 2: In Kansas City, Mo., Mike Trout had his 21st multi-hit game, Jason Vargas pitched into the eighth inning and the Angels extended their winning streak to six.

• Athletics 6, Astros 5: In Houston, Chris Young connected on a three-run homer in the ninth inning to lift Oakland. Young, who grew up in Houston, is hitting just .189 this year.

• Rangers 9, Mariners 5: In Seattle, Jeff Baker hit a two-run homer and Lance Berkman added a three-run shot, both off Seattle starter Joe Saunders, and Texas won.

Interleague

• White Sox 4, Marlins 3: In Chicago, Jeff Keppinger drove in the winning run on a single in the 11th and John Danks was solid in his season debut as the White Sox won.
