Nats hold Red to one hit... Again

(Continued)

Tigers 10, Braves 0

DETROIT — Anibal Sanchez struck out 17 in eight marvelous innings for Detroit, confounding the Braves in a dazzling performance.

Sanchez set a team record for strikeouts in a nine-inning game, and he had a mathematical chance of tying the major league mark of 20 when he was pulled after eight innings and 121 pitches. Sanchez (3-1) took off his hat as he was leaving the field following the top of the eighth, acknowledging a huge ovation at Comerica Park after he struck out Dan Uggla, his final hitter.

Paul Maholm (3-2) allowed eight runs in 3 2-3 innings after giving up only three in his first four starts.

Detroit's Matt Tuiasosopo homered and drove in a career-high five runs.

 

Phillies 4, Mets 0

NEW YORK — Kyle Kendrick pitched the best game of his career, throwing a three-hitter for Philadelphia and getting home-run help from Ryan Howard.

The Phillies ended their three-game skid and dropped the Mets under .500 for the first time this season.

Kendrick (2-1) scattered three singles and didn't permit a runner beyond second base.

Philadelphia broke a scoreless tie in the sixth inning when Michael Young hit an RBI single and Howard followed with a long three-run homer off Dillon Gee (1-4).

 

Cubs 4, Marlins 2

MIAMI — Anthony Rizzo had two home runs and four RBIs to power the Cubs to back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

Rizzo's second career two-homer game gave him eight on the season, the most by a Cubs left-handed hitter in April. Billy Williams (1970) and Henry Rodriguez (2000) each hit seven.

Scott Feldman (1-3) allowed two runs in 6 2-3 innings, and Kevin Gregg recorded his second save. Darwin Barney had three hits for Chicago, which beat Miami 4-3 on Thursday and had been 0-6 following a win.

Wade LeBlanc (0-4) gave up four runs in six-plus innings and Joe Mahoney hit his first career homer for the Marlins.
