Blog Photo - MLB Recap: 7/13We already covered Tim Lincecum's no-hitter earlier today, but there was plenty of other action in baseball on Saturday. Let's get to it.

Miami 2, Washington 1 (10 innings) The Marlins looked like they wasted another great Jose Fernandez start, until Giancarlo Stanton hit a ball a mile or so. Fernandez was pumped.

The Marlins won it in the 10th on the rare walk-off fielder's choice, as the Nats couldn't get the out at first on a double play.

Texas 7, Detroit 1 Max Scherzer gave up 4 runs in 6 innings and thus finally took a loss this year. It was not his worst start statistically though. Go figure.

L.A. Dodgers 1, Colorado 0 In many ways, Zach Greinke was more brilliant than Lincecum yesterday. Greinke went the distance, giving up just 3 base runners and striking out 9, all with the pressure of a 1-0 game.

Oakland 3, Boston 0 The great pitching performance continue with 8 shutout innings from A.J. Griffin.

Chicago White Sox 5, Philadelphia 4 (11 innings) In the first game of a doubleheader, the White Sox scored two in the 11th to take the lead. The Phillies got one back and had the winning run at the plate before a double play ended.

Philadelphia 2, Chicago White Sox 1 (13 innings) Two great plays won the second game for the Phillies. The first was this assist by Dominic Brown in the 11th.

Michael Young then hit the game winning walk-off single in the 13th.

Atlanta 5, Cincinnati 2 The Braves got to Homer Bailey in the middle innings, and Craig Kimbrel took them home. Textbook for the Braves.

Toronto 7, Baltimore 3 Chris Davis hit his 36th homer, but the Blue Jays scored 2 in the 6th and 3 in the 7th to pull away from the O's.

Pittsburgh 4, N.Y. Mets 2 Down 2-0 early, the Pirates waited for the inevitable Mets bullpen meltdown to take the lead in the 7th. They're back to 20 games above .500.

Arizona 5, Milwaukee 4 The D'Backs scored three in the 7th as John Axford struggled again, walking in the eventual winning run.

Minnesota 4, N.Y. Yankees 1 Phil Hughes struck out ten, but also gave up homers to Trevor Plouffe, Ryan Doumit, and Pedro Florimon. The Yankees offense was the Yankees offense, and that's all she wrote.

Seattle 6, L.A. Angels 0 In case you forgot, King Felix is good, as he goes 8 shutout innings to win the duel with Jered Weaver. The Mariners have scored at least six runs in five of the last six games, which frightens and confuses me.

Tampa Bay 4, Houston 3 The Astros had four hits and three runs in the first innings, and two hits and zero runs the rest of the game, allowing Tampa to come back.

Chicago Cubs 6, St. Louis 4 The Cubs got to Lance Lynn, and the Cardinals late inning comeback attempt fell short.

Cleveland 5, Kansas City 3 A Lonnie Chisenhall grand slam broke open the game in the 6th, and the Indians held on from there.

"The Mariners have scored at least six runs in five of the last six games, which frightens and confuses me."

Hah! It frightens and confuses M's fans too. But we're loving it! Hopefully that keeps up after the break.
