Murphy's RBI double in 10th lifts Nationals over Phils 3-2

Harper took Philadelphia Phillies' closer Joaquin Benoit deep yesterday for a three-run blast that lifted the Nationals over their NL East rivals in the ninth inning of Sunday's series finale in D.C.

Shawn Kelley (2-0) relieved with the bases loaded in the ninth and got Maikel Franco to ground into a forceout.

Gio Gonzalez allowed three runs - two earned - over 7 1/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision versus the Phillies. Hernandez would score a tying run that inning. Bundy continued his promising start to the season by tossing six scoreless innings with six strikeouts.

The Washington Nationals are just 1-5 this season when scoring three or less runs. Adam Eaton and Jayson Werth have each hit homes runs off him, but the team as a whole has a.216/.259/.392 batting line.

Joely Rodriguez pitched a scoreless seventh.

Aaron Hicks also hit a homer and Aaron Judge was robbed of one by a fan in the bleachers, forcing the young Yankees bopper to settle for an RBI triple.

Eickhoff gave up a run in the first, and two more in the third. The Nationals' new closer is now pitching to a 6.00 ERA with four walks and eight hits in six innings. He was activated before the game after recovering from a back strain.

Phillies: Herrera was out of the lineup for the first time in 12 games this season.

Granted, it's only 10 games, .

Wenger says Arsenal faces 'massive' challenge to reach top 4
"Honestly, I am professional and when you are professional you perform in ideal conditions and non-ideal conditions", he added. It may be too late in Arsene Wenger's career for him to evolve massively, but it doesn't mean he's entirely stuck in his ways.

MIAMI - Rookie J.T. Riddle hit a two-run homer against Addison Reed (0-1) with two outs in the ninth.

The same holds for Cameron Rupp, who has struggled at the plate and is hitting.167.

Stars win games when the rest of their team around them is questionable.

Andrew McCutchen snapped a 1-1 tie with an eighth-inning RBI on a fielder's choice before Frazier's bomb an inning later sealed it.

TIGERS 4, INDIANS 1: Matthew Boyd (2-1) allowed one run in six innings, and Alex Avila hit a two-run homer.

Rendon lined out to right.

For the second time in three days, a Phillies reliever tempted danger by walking Chris Heisey, a Nationals reserve with a career.300 on-base percentage.

Cleveland went 14-4 against Detroit past year as it won the AL Central. Pittsburgh's last three-game sweep at Wrigley was in September 2014. He gave up a two-run to shot to Bryce Harper (who else?). The 23-year-old right-hander allowed four walks, three hits and three runs. "It was 3-1 most of the game and not a whole lot was going on". Neftali Feliz struck out two in a ideal ninth for his fourth save.

One of Gonzalez's most frustrating innings was the top of the third, when he threw 16 pitches and only six strikes.

The evacuation deal was brokered by Qatar, negotiating on behalf of the rebels, and Iran, on behalf of the government, in March. But a delay in the agreement had left all those evacuated stuck at transit points on Aleppo's outskirts since late on Friday.

Kansas City has won four straight, the Los Angeles has lost five in a row. He rebounded after giving up a home run in the first at-bat of the game to Hernandez.

Senzatela allowed three runs and seven hits in seven innings, and Greg Holland pitched a flawless ninth for his seventh straight save this season. He was 0-for-3 and does not have a hit this year in four at-bats.

Now with the score 3-2, the Nationals went to their bullpen.

Brian Dozier hit an inside-the-park home run for the Twins. "He threw seven good innings". The left-hander allowed two runs, five hits and two walks and struck out two.

Michael Lorenzen walked a batter in the ninth while getting his first career save. Eickhoff made quick work of Gonzalez and Eaton to begin the inning, but then Rendon extended the inning by legging out an infield single.

Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his fourth save.

Nomar Mazara gave Texas a 7-6 lead when he led off the ninth against Edwin Diaz (1-1) with his fourth homer. That was the Phillies' only run until the eighth when they rallied for a pair of runs to tie the game.

Shin-Soo Choo had a three-run homer in the second and two-run double in the third.

Champions League: Milestone-man Ronaldo secures Real's comeback win over Bayern
