    Best of MLB: Marcell Ozuna walk-off single caps Marlins' comeback

    MIAMI -- Marcell Ozuna singled home the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning, and the Miami Marlins overcame an early six-run deficit to beat the Washington Nationals 8-7 on Monday night.

    Miami slugger Justin Bour tied the game at 6 in the third inning with a grand slam, his 18th homer. Giancarlo Stanton also hit his 18th of the season to make it 7-all in the seventh.

    Bryce Harper hit his 18th homer for Washington, and Anthony Rendon also went deep.

    Enny Romero (2-3) retired his first two batters in the ninth but walked Dee Gordon on four pitches. Gordon stole second and went to third on a sharp infield single by Stanton before Christian Yelich walked on a 3-2 pitch to load the bases (see full recap).

    Kluber throws 3-hitter as Indians crush O's
    BALTIMORE -- Corey Kluber pitched a three-hitter for his fifth career shutout, Jason Kipnis and Carlos Santana homered and the Cleveland Indians overpowered the Baltimore Orioles 12-0 Monday night for their season-high sixth straight victory.

    Santana and Austin Jackson had three RBIs apiece for the AL Central leaders, whose recent surge has lifted them to a season-best six games over .500 (37-31).

    Cleveland batted around in the fourth and fifth innings and sent eight men to the plate in a three-run sixth that made it 11-0. The Indians banged out a season-high 10 extra-base hits, including seven doubles.

    Kluber (6-2) struck out 11 and walked none in his 12th career complete game and second shutout of the season (see full recap).

    Dickey dominates as Braves blank Giants
    ATLANTA -- R.A. Dickey threw seven scoreless innings, Matt Adams hit another homer and the Atlanta Braves sent the San Francisco Giants to their seventh straight loss, a 9-0 rout Monday night.

    The 42-year-old Dickey (5-5) escaped a jam in the first to turn in his strongest outing of the season. He surrendered just three hits and retired 16 of the last 17 hitters he faced.

    Of course, it helped to be going against the Giants, whose skid is the longest of a hugely disappointing season. San Francisco dropped to 26-46 and fell a staggering 20 games behind first-place Colorado in the NL West.

    Adams homered in the fourth off Johnny Cueto (5-7), driving it deep into the right-field seats. The first baseman added an RBI single in the eighth, sparking a seven-run outburst that made it a rout.

    He now has 10 homers and 27 RBIs since being acquired from St. Louis on May 20 (see full recap).
