Turner pitches Marlins past Braves
Jacob Turner allowed two runs in his bid for a permanent return to Miami’s rotation and the Marlins knocked Mike Minor out of the game early in their 6-5 win over the Atlanta Braves.
Donovan Solano had a career-high four hits and reached on a walk as Miami took its second straight win over Atlanta. Christian Yelich had two hits and scored three runs.
Turner (3-6), making his first start since June 11, gave up four hits in five innings. He loaded the bases but allowed only one run in the first inning. The other run he gave up came on Justin Upton’s third-inning homer.
PIRATES 12, DODGERS 7
Gregory Polanco got out of a slump with a solo home run and a tiebreaking two-run single, lifting Pittsburgh over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Neil Walker went 2-for-4 with his 15th homer and three RBI. Ike Davis had three hits, including his sixth home run.
Vance Worley (3-1) overcame shaky defense behind him to win for the first time in nearly a month.
Adrian Gonzalez smacked his 15th homer and finished with three RBI for the Dodgers.
CUBS 6, PADRES 0
Anthony Rizzo hit two home runs, and Kyle Hendricks pitched seven innings in his return from the minor leagues, as the Chicago Cubs beat San Diego to snap a five-game losing streak.
Rizzo became the first National League player to reach 25 homers this season, his career high.
INDIANS 8, TWINS 2
Carlos Santana homered among his season high-tying four hits and Danny Salazar won in his first start in more than two months as Cleveland topped Minnesota.
Cleveland won for the fourth time in six games since the All-Star break. Minnesota has lost four of five.
BREWERS 4, REDS 3
Jonathan Lucroy homered leading off the bottom of the ninth inning to give Milwaukee a win over Cincinnati.
It was Lucroy’s second homer of the game and 11th of the season. It was his second career walkoff homer, both against the Reds. His first was last season off closer Aroldis Chapman and this one was off Sam LeCure.
Francisco Rodriguez (4-3) pitched the ninth to earn the victory.
