Tazawa handles new role; bullpen falls in line

It didn't take long for the Marlins to find a fill-in for David Phelps in the back end of the bullpen. Junichi Tazawa promises to get more chances in high-leverage situations, and one of them came in Friday's 3-1 win over the Reds at Great American Ball Park.

Early runs hold up as Urena, Fish 4-hit Reds

Both the Reds and Marlins have been headed in the wrong direction while slumping coming out of the All-Star break. Miami, which had lost five of six games entering Friday, got a respite with its 3-1 victory at Great American Ball Park. Cincinnati has now dropped seven of eight games since the second half began.

Ramos focused in face of trade rumors

The Marlins dealt reliever David Phelps to the Mariners on Thursday for four prospects, but they are by no means done moving bullpen pieces ahead of the non-waiver Trade Deadline on July 31. Closer AJ Ramos has been among the players other teams have looked into, and Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said Thursday the market for Ramos is similar to what it was for Phelps.

Stanton, Yelich homer, but pitchers falter in loss

Braves beat Dodgers 12-3 after Wood unravels in 1st loss

Jaime Garcia maintains a poker face most of the time. But the Atlanta pitcher couldn't stop smiling after the biggest hit of his career. Garcia launched a grand slam off previously unbeaten Alex Wood to highlight the Braves' 12-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night. "That was pretty unbelievable," Garcia said. "I've never hit a grand slam in my life, not even in Little League." The subject of trade speculation lately, Garcia limited Los Angeles to three runs over seven innings as the Braves won their second straight at Dodger Stadium. The NL West leaders hadn't lost two in a row since June 5-6 against Washington. They've been outscored 18-6 in the first two games of the series.

Detroit and Minnesota are very familiar with each other, but the Tigers made themselves known as sellers this week when they traded slugging outfielder J.D. Martinez to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Brandon McCarthy struggles, Dodgers streak ends at 10

LOS ANGELES Before Thursday night, the Dodgers’ run of 31 wins in 35 games, including 11 in a row, was fraught with so little adversity that comparisons to other Major League Baseball teams began to feel insufficient. A reporter asked manager Dave Roberts to compare his team to the most recent NBA champion, the Golden State Warriors. Flattered, Roberts was quick to point out the Dodgers have not won a World Series, for all their recent success. Flattery comes with the territory when making a difficult thing look easy. Amid the Dodgers’ ascent into rare company, this has not been Brandon McCarthy’s territory. McCarthy’s latest start lasted a mere four innings Thursday — not quite his shortest

Twins close to acquiring left-hander Jaime Garcia from Braves

The Minnesota Twins are in the final stages of acquiring left-hander Jaime Garcia in a trade with the Atlanta Braves for a minor league player, a source told ESPN, confirming multiple reports. Garcia has gone 3-7 with a 4.33 ERA in 17 starts over the past three-plus months for the Braves, who picked up the 31-year-old in an offseason trade with the St. Louis Cardinals for a trio of prospects. Garcia has spent the majority of his injury-interrupted career with the Cardinals, going 62-45 with a 3.57 ERA in eight seasons for St. Louis. He was third in Rookie of the Year voting in 2010, went 13-7 the following season while helping St. Louis win the World Series, and threw 171 2/3 innings in 2016
