Question of the Day
ATLANTA (AP) - Brandon Crawford homered twice, and the San Francisco Giants beat Atlanta 4-1 Sunday to complete a three-game sweep that extended the Braves’ losing streak to six - their longest since dropping eight straight in May 2012.
Madison Bumgarner (3-3) allowed one unearned run and three hits in six innings, striking out nine as the Giants won their fifth in a row. Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth for his first save.
Alex Wood (2-5) lost his fourth straight start, giving up two runs and seven hits in five innings.
San Francisco has homered in 11 straight games for the first time since Sept. 23, 2010, to April 3, 2011, according to STATS.
MARLINS 5, DODGERS 4
MIAMI (AP) - Jeff Baker hit a winning double off the wall against Jamey Wright (2-2) with two outs in the ninth.
Right fielder Yasiel Puig retreated and made a leaping try for an acrobatic catch but slammed against the fence, and the ball deflected off it and hit him in the face. Puig collapsed to his stomach and was slow to rise; he passed a concussion test and Los Angeles said he is day to day.
Giancarlo Stanton homered twice and drove in three runs for Miami, giving him the NL leads with 10 home runs and 36 RBIs.
A.J. Ramos (2-0) tried to protect a one-run lead in the ninth for his first career save, but Chone Figgins walked and scored on Andre Ethier’s double.
METS 5, ROCKIES 1
DENVER (AP) - Dillon Gee (3-1) allowed six hits in six innings, extending his scoreless streak to a career-best 16 innings as New York avoided a four-game sweep. He is 13-6 with a 2.66 ERA since last May 30.
After wasting a 6-0 lead in Saturday’s 11-10 loss, the Mets jumped to a 4-0 lead after four innings.
David Wright, Chris Young, Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda had RBI doubles - Wright has a .384 average, 10 homers and 40 RBIs in 138 at-bats at Coors Field.
Jhoulys Chacin (0-1) was rather rusty his first start this season, lasting five innings and giving up four runs. Chacin spent the first month on the disabled list with a strained right shoulder.
