Rookie Jordan Yamamoto won for the third time in as many career starts and the Miami Marlins defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 6-4 on Sunday.
Aged 23, Yamamoto (3-0) gave two runs, two hits and four walks in five innings of work. His deserved points average is 0.95.
Garrett Cooper and Brian Anderson have hit consecutive streaks for the Marlins, who have swept the series of three duels against the Phillies for the first time since August 2009.
Woodruff handcuffs the Reds
Brandon Woodruff pulled out 12 opponents, a career high, Travis Shaw snapped a circuit and the Milwaukee Brewers triumphed 7-5 over the Cincinnati Reds.
Woodruff (9-2) started well for five innings before giving Joey Votto a long three-point ball. The Brewers are 13-1 in 17 starts this season.
A 100th circuit for Baez
Javier Baez had a 100th four-goal shot, a three-point slap in the eighth inning, and the Chicago Cubs won 5-3 at the expense of the New York Mets.
Baez hit a 19th circuit this season and ruined the record performance by Mets rookie Pete Alonso. Alonso got a 27th long ball, lowering Darryl Strawberry’s team record for the highest total in a campaign by a rookie.
