Stanton becomes franchise's all-time RBI leader in win over Diamondbacks

Stanton becomes franchise's all-time RBI leader in win over Diamondbacks

Miami Marlins right-hander Edinson Volquez tossed his first career no-hitter and the first of the Major League season on Saturday in a 3-0 victory over the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks. While Volquez tossing a no-hitter registers as a surprise given the difficulty any pitcher faces in amassing 27 outs of Major League Baseball batters without allowing a hit (let alone a starter with Volquez's inconsistent record), he's no Bud Smith or Philip Humber and won't rank as one of the worst pitchers ever to accomplish the feat. Pinch-hitter Daniel Descalso came up, and after falling behind 2-0 in the count, Volquez stopped for a moment, composed himself with a deep breath, and eventually got the strikeout.

He surrendered just two walks against the D-Backs, striking out 10 and facing the minimum 27 batters (he was able to induce a pair of double plays).

Shipley (0-1, 6.75) makes his second start of the season for Arizona, against Miami's Vance Worley (0-2, 4.50) in the series finale. That bid was ended by the Reds' Devin Mesoraco, who hit a leadoff single in the seventh inning.

Miami (23-32) has won six of its past seven games.

Hector Rondon (1-1) pitched a scoreless seventh to earn the win.

For Boston , guard Avery Bradley was the only player to get anything going, with most of his 23 points coming in the first half. During his post-game press conference, LeBron was asked if he has ever missed a dunk like that before, and he joked that he has.

Locke is 35-38 with a 4.41 ERA over his career, including 1-2 with a 6.57 ERA in five appearances (four starts) versus Arizona. He allowed only four hits, none after the fourth inning. That day, he allowed only an infield hit in a complete game shutout. Chris Iannetta also homered and David Peralta scored twice for the Diamondbacks, whose three-game winning streak was snapped. He gave up only three hits.

Since 2014, he's had five separate months when he's pitched at least 10 innings and had an ERA under two out of the bullpen. The Royals sent 10 men to the plate and the six runs rivaled their biggest inning of the year. His first season in Miami started about as badly as possible; the Marlins lost eight of his first nine starts and Volquez dropped his first seven decisions.

Stanton is hitting.414 with three homers since being moved up in the order. - Lorenzo Cain capped a six-run fifth inning with a two-run homer, Jason Hammel settled down after a shaky start and the Kansas City Royals routed the Cleveland Indians 12-5 on Saturday.

The Dodgers loaded the bases in the ninth against Torres (2-4) and Taylor homered off the batters' eye behind the center-field fence.

DETROIT - Alex Avila, Justin Upton, Nick Castellanos and Alex Presley each hit a home run and Jordan Zimmermann showed off his revamped slider to lead Detroit over Chicago.
