MLB capsules

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — J.T. Realmuto, a former Carl Albert High School standout, had three RBIs in his major league debut, Marcell Ozuna homered and drove in four runs, and Miami handed Tampa Bay its 10th consecutive loss.

Realmuto drove in two runs on his first big league hit, a fourth-inning single, and added a sixth-inning RBI single.

Ozuna's two-run homer put Miami up 11-6 in the ninth. Giancarlo Stanton hit his 17th home run, a two-run shot during a three-run seventh that made it 9-5.

The Marlins beat the Rays for the fourth straight time in a home-and-home interleague series.

Jacob Turner (2-3) allowed five runs and eight hits over 5 1-3 innings for Miami.

A three-run sixth gave the Marlins a 6-3 lead. Casey McGehee ended starter Jake Odorizzi's day with a leadoff double. Jake McGee (2-1) entered and allowed RBI singles to Ozuna and Realmuto.

NATIONAL LEAGUE

SAN FRANCISCO 6, CINCINNATI 1

CINCINNATI — Left-hander Madison Bumgarner got his career-high sixth straight win, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Reds 6-1 on Thursday afternoon, taking a series in Cincinnati for the first time in five years.

San Francisco moved a season-high 18 games over .500 with its 11th win in 14 games. The Giants have the best record in the majors at 39-21.

Bumgarner (8-3) gave up three hits in eight innings, including Todd Frazier's homer, and retired the last 16 batters he faced. He's 6-0 in his last seven starts, the best such streak of his career.

Michael Morse hit a two-run homer, and Brandon Crawford broke out of a slump with a three-run shot off Mike Leake (3-5), who had overwhelmed the Giants the last four times he faced them.

NATIONALS 4, PHILLIES 2

WASHINGTON — Doug Fister kept himself and his club on a roll, allowing two runs and four hits over seven innings as Washington Nationals capped a sweep.

Fister (4-1) struck out five and didn't walk any as he won his fourth consecutive start for what's starting to look like the tough-act-to-follow rotation expected from the Nationals this season.

The Nationals have won five of six. They've outscored opponents 38-12 in those half-dozen games, including 19-6 in each of the three-game series against the Texas Rangers and the Phillies.

Kyle Kendrick (1-6) allowed four runs over seven innings and walked a season-high five as the Phillies dropped their season-high sixth in a row.

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

  • Really one true champion?

    I decided to spare the colleagues in front of me – and myself from making a scene – by holding back flipping my table at the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days in Dallas.
    I had become exhausted by the constant use and misrepresentation by the Big 12 with their moniker of “One True Champion.” If they are going to live with the slogan, then they need to abide by that slogan.
    Perhaps its a simple case that they are keeping constant with the poor math of the 10-team Big 12 Conference.
