"After I went out there and threw the first pitch, I realized this is the same game I've been playing".

Garrett walked the first batter he faced, but settled in and retired 10 of the next 11. I didn't get deep enough in the ballgame to make a difference.

The Yankees had taken a 5-1 lead thanks to early two-run homers from Matt Holliday and Gary Sanchez off Ubaldo Jimenez.

The Cardinals had been scoreless for their last 13 innings before Aledmys Diaz, in his first career at-bat against 40-year-old Cincinnati righthander Bronson Arroyo, lined his first homer of the season to left field in the first inning Saturday at Busch Stadium.

Matt Bowman had a ideal seventh for the Cardinals but Jonathan Broxton gave up a two-run homer to Scott Schebler in the eighth.

Joey Votto had an RBI double and Scott Schebler homered for the Reds (3-1).

Votto's double in the sixth scored Billy Hamilton. In his first start, Martinez logged a no-decision with 7.1 innings, six hits and no earned against the Cubs.

Jose Peraza (from the Todd Frazier trade) and former Milwaukee Brewer are at second base. "We just couldn't get anything going offensively".

Gordon's double off reliever Jandel Gustave brought home Brandon Moss and Alcides Escobar and followed a bases-loaded passed ball by Astros catcher Evan Gattis that allowed Salvador Perez to score.

Kyle Freeland allowed one run in six solid innings in his major league debut, leading Colorado past Los Angeles.

Molina helped thwarted a Reds rally in the fifth with his arm. St. Louis drew a dozen walks from four pitchers but only cashed four of them into runs and stranded a dozen runners.

Zimmermann (1-0), whose 2016 season was hampered by groin and neck injuries, limited the Red Sox to one run on four hits in his longest outing since June 30.

"He's got a good fastball", Duvall said about Martinez. RHP Austin Brice (ulnar nerve inflammation, right elbow) made his first rehab appearance for Pensacola on Friday, striking out two in a 13-pitch inning. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said Friday that RHP Trevor Rosenthal (right lat strain), who was scheduled to throw another bullpen session this weekend, might instead throw a simulated game on Saturday and then rejoin the team on its upcoming road trip.

CHICAGO - Phil Hughes was sharp through six innings in his first start in almost a year, Miguel Sano doubled in the tie-breaking run in sixth and the Minnesota defeated Chicago. On Saturday, the Cardinals struck back with a 10-4 blowout.

Cincinnati will turn to Scott Feldman (0-1, 5.79 ERA) to try to quell St. Louis' offense.

In the patois of his old sport, Garrett hit nothing but net against the St. Louis Cardinals.
