National League Game Capsules

(Saturday, April 25)

Final Score: Miami 8, Washington 0

Miami, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Tom Koehler tossed 7 1/3 scoreless innings and outdueled Stephen Strasburg to guide the Miami Marlins to an 8-0 win over the Washington Nationals on Saturday. Koehler (2-2) gave up six hits and a walk while striking out four for Miami, which has taken the first two games of this three-game series. Giancarlo Stanton clubbed a solo home run among his three hits, Adeiny Hechavarria added a three-run shot to extend his hit streak to eight games and Justin Bour had a pair of RBI singles in his season debut. Strasburg (1-2), who entered Saturday's game with a 14-inning scoreless streak against the Marlins, was charged with four runs on eight hits over six innings of work. Yunel Escobar, Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos all had two hits in Washington's fourth consecutive defeat.

Final Score: NY Mets 8, NY Yankees 2

Bronx, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Mets turned the tables on the rival Yankees to even the Subway Series, swatting three home runs to back Matt Harvey's near complete-game effort in an 8-2 victory Saturday at Yankee Stadium. Kevin Plawecki, Lucas Duda and Eric Campbell all took CC Sabathia deep in support of Harvey's (4-0) latest successful start since returning from Tommy John surgery. The ace right-hander yielded just five hits and two walks while striking out seven over 8 2/3 innings to win for the fourth time in as many outings this season. The formula was virtually the same the Yankees used to record a 6-1 win in Friday's opener, when they tagged Jacob deGrom for three homers and received 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball from Michael Pineda to end the Mets' 11-game win streak. Plawecki finished 2-for-4 and Juan Lagares went 4-for-4 with an RBI triple and three runs scored for the Mets, whose 14-4 start matches the 1986 World Series champion team for the best in club history. Sabathia (0-4) wound up being rocked for seven runs on nine hits over five-plus innings to extend a winless stretch dating back to April 29 of last season. Mark Teixeira had three hits, including his eighth homer of the season and third of the series, for the Yankees.

Chicago at Cincinnati, postponed

Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Saturday's game between the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds was postponed because of rain after a rain delay of over four hours. No makeup date has been announced. Prior to the scheduled 1:10 p.m. ET start, the Reds held a ceremony to honor the 25th anniversary of their 1990 World Series champion team. The tarp was removed for a planned 4:35 p.m. start as the grounds crew prepared the field, but the tarp was quickly put back in place. Cincinnati's Anthony DeSclafini was scheduled to face off against Chicago's Jake Arrieta. The series resumes on Sunday.
