McCullers, Astros shut down Marlins

BRAVES 9, BLUE JAYS 5: TORONTO - Dansby Swanson hit a tiebreaking homer in the seventh inning, Freddie Freeman also had a two-run shot and the Atlanta Braves beat the Toronto Blue Jays, sweeping their two-game series. "So I'll kind of treat (Wednesday) as that", McCullers said.

"I was proud of Lance", Hinch said.

Jake Marisnick tripled his season RBI total to six with a pair of two-run homers against his former team, both caroming off the home run sculpture at Marlins Park.

The Astros scored two unearned runs in the sixth to extend their lead to 3-0. He also became the sixth Japanese pitcher in major league history to reach 50 career victories.

Houston RHP Michael Feliz has struck out 13 while allowing one run in seven innings over his past six appearances.

The Marlins were outscored 22-4 in the series and head to California last in the NL East after going 1-8 on their homestand.

Houston scored in the first on doubles by Stringer and Altuve.

Springer led off the game with a double over a leaping Giancarlo Stanton in right field. Miami should have escaped the jam when McCullers hit a bouncer to Dee Gordon at second. The box score for the Astros resembled those numbers from Lost while the Marlins managed just two runs in the first.

Brazil's president may lead a 'walking dead administration'
Cunha was convicted this year of money laundering and corruption as part of the Operation Car Wash anticorruption probe. It has been interpreted as referring to bribes given to Cunha to make sure that he doesn't talk to prosecutors himself.

"That was a mental mistake on my part", he said. "I've got to throw the ball to first".

St. Louis made three errors and lost for just the second time in 10 games. But, the Pirates have not officially talked about being sellers at this point, even though their season seems to be nearly lost after All-Star outfielder Starling Marte was suspended 80 games for performance-enhancing drugs, pitcher Jameson Taillon had to have surgery for suspicion of testicular cancer and All-Star Andrew McCutchen is hitting a dismal.206.

The Marlins claimed INF Christian Colon off waivers from Kansas City and designated INF Steve Lombardozzi for assignment.

3B Marwin Gonzalez extended his hit streak to 11 games.

C Brian McCann had four RBIs against Miami on Tuesday. RHP Edinson Volquez is 0-5 with a 4.41 ERA, and RHPs Junichi Tazawa and Brad Ziegler have ERAs of 6.60 and 7.04, respectively. Houston rested SS Carlos Correa, whose 46 homers are the second most in Major League Baseball history for a shortstop younger than 23. Houston rested Brian McCann, who is 11th in Major League Baseball history with 238 homers by a catcher. Springer has 24 RBIs which is tops amongst leadoff hitters in the AL.

In Anaheim, California, Mike Trout homered for the fourth consecutive game to help Los Angeles top Chicago.

Houston: Following a day off, RHP Charlie Morton (5-2, 3.97) is scheduled to start Friday for the Astros when they return home to open a three-game series against Cleveland.
