Adam Duvall made MLB history as the Atlanta Braves humbled the Miami Marlins 29-9 in a merciless performance.

Duvall became the first player in league history to hit a two-run homer, a three-run homer and a grand slam in a game in that order, according to STATS.

The Braves produced a National League (NL)-record 29-run outburst against the Marlins on Wednesday, fuelled by an 11-run second inning in Atlanta.

Duvall, Travis d'Arnaud and Ozzie Albies all hit home runs for the Braves, who tied the record for the second most runs in a game in the modern era (since 2000) – falling just short of the Texas Rangers' 30 against the Baltimore Orioles in 2007.

The Milwaukee Brewers also won big, embarrassingly shutting out the Detroit Tigers in a 19-0 triumph.

A pair of Jedd Gyorko home runs and homers from Jacob Nottingham, Ryan Braun and Tyrone Taylor sparked the Brewers, who tallied their most runs in a game since scoring 20 in 2010.

 

Bauer pitches gem

Trevor Bauer inspired the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 win over the Chicago Cubs. Bauer struck out 10 over 7.2 innings at Wrigley Field, where he only allowed three runs without a walk.

Deivi Garcia earned his first MLB win as the New York Yankees snapped a five-game losing streak by beating the Toronto Blue Jays 7-2. In his third career start, Garcia gave up two runs and five hits in seven innings. The 21-year-old struck out six.

James McCann homered twice for the first multi-homer game of his career to help the Chicago White Sox rout the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-1.

 

Lopez has game to forget

It was a horror outing for Pablo Lopez and the Marlins. Lopez allowed seven runs in only 1.2 innings of work, walking four. Atlanta's huge second inning saw Lopez dragged.

Acuna makes Braves history

Ronald Acuna Jr. set a franchise record after hitting his 18th career lead-off homer in the Atlanta Braves' 10-4 loss to World Series champions the Washington Nationals. He eclipsed Felipe Alou's 17 lead-off home runs for the Braves from 1964 to 1969.

The Miami Marlins snapped a nine-game skid against the Tampa Bay Rays by upstaging the American League (AL) East leaders 7-3 behind Sandy Alcantara's solid performance. Alcantara allowed one run over six innings.

The in-form Los Angeles Dodgers equalled a franchise record in MLB, while Mike Trout tied an Angels mark on Friday.

The Dodgers improved to 30-10 this season thanks to a 10-6 victory over the Colorado Rockies.

Mookie Betts went three-for-five with two RBIs in the Dodgers' win.

Trout equalled Tim Salmon for the most home runs in Angels history during a 6-5 win over the Houston Astros.

The Angels star homered in the first inning for the 299th homer of his career.

Having struggled this season, Jake Arrieta finally found some form. The Philadelphia Phillies pitcher struck out seven and gave up just two runs in seven innings in a 5-3 victory against the New York Mets.

A loss to the Atlanta Braves in the first game of a doubleheader saw the Washington Nationals' streak of defeats stretch to seven. They snapped that with a 10-9 win in the second game.

The Baltimore Orioles finally beat the New York Yankees. They also lost game one of a doubleheader for a 19th consecutive loss to the Yankees, before winning the second match 6-3.

Adam Duvall hit three home runs as the Atlanta Braves made history in MLB, while the Tampa Bay Rays enjoyed a win.

Duvall went deep three times as the Braves beat the Boston Red Sox 7-5 on Wednesday.

Incredibly, it came a day after team-mate Marcell Ozuna achieved the same feat for the Braves.

They joined Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig (1930) as the only team-mates in MLB history to have three-homer games on back-to-back days, and they are the first to do it in back-to-back games, as per STATS.

Marcell Ozuna dominated the Boston Red Sox in MLB on Tuesday, while Starling Marte's Miami Marlins debut was memorable.

Ozuna became the first National League (NL) player to hit three home runs in a game at Fenway Park as the Atlanta Braves crushed the Red Sox 10-3.

He went three-for-five with six RBIs as the Braves, who top the NL East, improved to 21-14.

Making his second career start, Ian Anderson again impressed, striking out eight across six innings.

Traded to the Marlins from the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday, Marte delivered on debut for Miami.

With scores locked at 2-2, Marte homered in the eighth as the Marlins beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2.

Dickerson dynamic as Nola shines again

Alex Dickerson hit three homers as the San Francisco Giants destroyed the Colorado Rockies 23-5. Dickerson went five-for-six with six RBIs in the resounding win.

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola was in fine form. He struck out nine and conceded just two hits in eight innings in a 6-0 shut-out win over the Washington Nationals.

Brad Miller went four-of-six with seven RBIs as the St Louis Cardinals thrashed the Cincinnati Reds 16-2.

Rays pitcher Tyler Glasnow starred, striking out nine in six innings and giving up just two hits.

The Rays are 25-11 and are now 4.5 games clear of the Yankees in the American League (AL) East.

Fried is now 6-0 this season after helping the Atlanta Braves past the Boston Red Sox 6-3.

The Braves pitcher conceded five hits in five innings as Austin Riley's three-run triple proved crucial.

Fried is the first left-hander to allow no homers through eight starts with his team winning all eight since Babe Ruth in 1917, according to STATS.

The Miami Marlins acquired star outfielder Starling Marte in a trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Stepping up their efforts to make the MLB playoffs, the Marlins acquired two-time Gold Glove winner Marte in exchange for Caleb Smith, Humberto Mejia and a player to be named later on Monday.

Marte, who is eligible for free agency at the end of the 2020 campaign, only joined the Diamondbacks from the Pittsburgh Pirates during the offseason.

The 2016 All-Star had 11 extra-base hits, two homers, 23 runs scored, 14 RBIs and five steals with the Diamondbacks this season.

Marte had spent most of his career playing for the Pirates, where he debuted in 2012, before the 31-year-old was dealt by Pittsburgh at the end of the 2019 season.

The Marlins, who also traded second baseman Jonathan Villar to the Toronto Blue Jays, are in the hunt for a postseason berth – Miami second in the National League (NL) East behind the Atlanta Braves.

The Los Angeles Dodgers set the National League (NL) record for home runs in a month after beating the Texas Rangers 7-2 in MLB.

Cody Bellinger's two-run homer gave the high-flying Dodgers 57 home runs in August, topping the previous record of 56 set by the Atlanta Braves in June 2019.

Corey Seager and Will Smith also homered for the NL-leading Dodgers, who boast the best record in MLB at 26-10.

Meanwhile, the New York Yankees completed a doubleheader sweep of rivals the New York Mets.

Jo Adell and Mike Trout starred as the Los Angeles Angels humbled the Seattle Mariners 16-3 in MLB.

Adell hit his first two home runs in MLB and Angels team-mate Trout drove in six against the Mariners on Saturday.

The Angels set a season high in runs as reigning American League (AL) MVP Trout had three hits, including a three-run homer in the seventh inning to help his team move 14-1 ahead.

Meanwhile, the New York Yankees edged neighbours the New York Mets 2-1 to avoid their longest slide in 25 years.

Clint Frazier scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning on Dellin Betances' wild pitch as the Yankees snapped a seven-game losing streak, having not lost eight in a row since 1995.

 

Bogaerts inspires Red Sox

Xander Bogaerts' three-run homer in the first inning set the tone as the AL East-worst Boston Red Sox defeated fellow strugglers and World Series champions the Washington Nationals 5-3.

The Mets extended the Yankees' losing streak to seven games with 6-4 and 4-3 victories.

Powered by a three-run homer from Pete Alonso, the Mets scored five runs in the sixth inning in the opening game.

Cubs at Reds

Enjoying a fine season, Yu Darvish (5-1, 1.70 ERA) will start for the Chicago Cubs (18-13) against Trevor Bauer (3-1, 1.65 ERA) and the Cincinnati Reds (14-17) on Saturday.

Dominic Smith took heart from the comradeship between the New York Mets and the Miami Marlins as the teams took a striking stance against racial inequality.

A day after he tearfully addressed the issue, Smith was part of an effort to bring more attention to the societal problem when the Mets and Marlins opted out of playing Thursday's game.

Rather than simply stay away from Citi Field, the Mets and Marlins observed a 42-second silence on the eve of Jackie Robinson Day, when baseball remembers the major league's first black player of the modern era and his number 42 uniform.

The teams on the field and both dugouts, who lined up with heads bowed and caps removed, observed the silence in memory of those who have died following police brutality.

Marlins outfielder Lewis Brinson left a Black Lives Matter T-shirt on home plate before every player left the field, with the game officially called off.

Smith said: "Just to see how moved my peers are, my team-mates, my brothers … everyone who's close to me on a daily basis. It made me feel like we are on the right path to change."

He added, quoted on the MLB website: "What people don't understand is this is way bigger than baseball. This is life. This is humanity."

Even as he spoke a day later, first baseman Smith's emotional comments from Wednesday continued to resonate.

The 25-year-old had said then: "I think the most difficult part is to see people still don't care. For this to just continuously happen, it just shows the hate in people's heart. That just sucks, you know? Black men in America, it’s not easy."

The latest block of protests and boycotts in sport have followed the shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old black man, by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Blake's family have said he has been left paralysed.

Brinson also spoke after the cancelled game, saying sport must make a year-round effort to show it supports communities and causes.

"It needs to be an ongoing thing," Brinson said. "We can't just have one day out of the baseball year that we bring light to everything. It needs to be Jackie Robinson Day. It needs to be the day after, it needs to be the day before."

The Los Angeles Dodgers dominated the San Francisco Giants, sweeping their doubleheader with back-to-back wins in MLB.

Protests continued in the league on Thursday following the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin, with teams throughout MLB opting not to play for the second straight day.

Seven games were postponed amid protests over racial injustice in the United States – Colorado Rockies-Arizona Diamondbacks, Boston Red Sox-Toronto Blue Jays, Philadelphia Phillies-Washington Nationals, Oakland Athletics-Texas Rangers, Baltimore Orioles-Tampa Bay Rays, Miami Marlins-New York Mets and Minnesota Twins-Detroit Tigers.

A total of eight teams were in action across doubleheaders, with the Dodgers blitzing the Giants 2-0 and 7-0 at Oracle Park, where ace Clayton Kershaw pitched six innings in the game-one win.

Kershaw struck out four and did not walk a batter as AJ Pollock hit a two-run homer and Mookie Betts reached 1,000 hits in the seven-run triumph, before the Dodgers won again in game two.

 

Padres' rally stuns Mariners

Trailing by four runs and down to their final out with bases empty, the San Diego Padres sensationally fought back to shock the Seattle Mainers 10-7 in game one of a doubleheader. Wil Myers' walk-off homer capped the stunning comeback.

Jesse Winker homered twice to help the Cincinnati Reds blitz the Milwaukee Brewers 6-1 in the first of two games between the two teams. It came after both the Reds and Brewers decided not to play on Wednesday.

 

Richards struggles

Garrett Richards had a tough outing against the Mariners. He saw rookie Jose Marmolejos hit a grand slam in a six-run first inning.

 

Mets and Marlins send strong message

After observing a moment of silence, Mets and Marlins players walked off the field in New York. Both teams had stretched and played catch prior the first scheduled pitch at Citi Field, before the Mets and Marlins lined up in front of their dugouts.
