• Marlins 8, Mets 4: In New York, Miami needed extras to beat New York again, but only 10 innings instead of 20. Derek Dietrich hit a tying home run in the eighth and second baseman Daniel Murphy's 10th-inning error allowed Logan Morrison to score the go-ahead run for Miami.

• Cardinals 11, Reds 4: In Cincinnati, Matt Holliday's grand slam capped a seven-run 10th inning for St. Louis. The Cardinals led 7-4 when Holliday hit his homer - a 464-foot shot into the left-field seats off rookie Curtis Partch.
