McCullers helps Astros beat Marlins 3-0 to complete sweep

Jake Marisnick tripled his season RBI total to six with a pair of two-run homers against his former team, both caroming off the home run sculpture at Marlins Park.

Yes, the Astros' slugging lineup presents a big challenge in front of Urena, but fortunately fit under backers, they'll be setting some key regulars like Carlos Correa, Carlos Beltran and Brian McCann.

A sloppy error by Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon led to two unearned runs.

The Astros (28-12) own the best record in the majors and have won 13 of 16 games.

Dickerson hit solo home runs in the third and fifth off Danny Salazar (2-4). Francisco Lindor added a solo shot in the eighth.

Altuve was hit on the left hand by a 92 miles per hour fastball from Straily but stayed in the game and contributed a two-run single in the seventh, then hit his sixth homer in the ninth. McCullers retired the next three batters.

Houston outscored the Marlins 19-4 while winning the first two contests of the three-game set and stand 5-1 as they enter the finale of a seven-game road trip.

Swanson snapped a 5-all tie with a leadoff drive to center off Danny Barnes (0-1).

TORONTO - Freddie Freeman hit his 14th home run to power Atlanta to a two-game sweep of Toronto.

It was Freeman's second homer in two games.

Clippard also handled the eighth before Jonathan Holder gave up a run in the ninth.

Whit Merrifield drove in Kansas City's lone run. In fact, he's also been one of the better starting hurlers in the American League, logging a 3-1 record through eight starts to go with a 2.98 ERA and.230 batting average against. Rodriguez walked two, struck out five and threw a season-high 110 pitches. I just made a dumb play. The Astros have the best record in the Major Leagues at 29-12, while the Yankees have the second-best record in the AL at 23-13.
