ATLANTA (AP) Dansby Swanson struck out to begin the ninth inning, so he wanted to do something special with the game on the line after the Atlanta Braves batted around.
"Yeah, I mean who doesn't?" Swanson said. "I think situations like that are what this game is meant to be played for. But obviously we wouldn't have been in that situation if the whole team didn't pick each other up that whole inning."
Swanson's two-run single capped a six-run ninth, and the NL-leading Braves rallied to stun the Miami Marlins 10-9 on Sunday.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Tyler Austin hit a pair of two-run homers, Sonny Gray pitched eight innings of four-hit ball and the New York Yankees beat the Kansas City Royals 10-1 on Sunday to win eight consecutive series for the first time since 1998.
Miguel Andujar and Austin Romine added back-to-back homers in the ninth for the Yankees, who have won 14 of their last 15 against the AL Central.
WASHINGTON (AP) Kike Hernandez and Yasiel Puig each hit two-run homers, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Washington Nationals 7-2 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
Hernandez's blast off Stephen Strasburg in the fifth inning put the Dodgers up 3-2. Yasmani Grandal also homered off Strasburg (5-4), who allowed three runs and five hits over 6 2/3 innings with seven strikeouts.
WASHINGTON (AP) Rich Hill went back on the Los Angeles Dodgers' disabled list, a day after a blister burst on his left middle finger, and ace Clayton Kershaw threw a bullpen session for the first time since getting hurt.
Hill lasted just two pitches when he started the second game of a doubleheader against Washington on Saturday.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Logan Morrison hit a two-run single to give the Minnesota Twins' offense a much-needed lift, and four relievers worked 3 1/3 scoreless innings in a 3-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.
Morrison's liner hit high off the right-field wall with one out and the bases loaded in the eighth against reliever Boone Logan. Minnesota was 3 for 18 with runners in scoring position in the series before Morrison's hit.
