NEW YORK — J.T. Realmuto homered and drove in four runs in his season debut after coming off the disabled list, leading Jarlin Garcia and the Miami Marlins to a 9-1 blowout of the sloppy New York Yankees on Tuesday night.

Garcia (1-0) gave up one hit in five shutout innings, overcoming five early walks to win for the first time as a starter. Miguel Andujar doubled off the base of the left-center wall with one out in the fifth off Garcia – who held the New York Mets hitless for six innings last week at home in his first major league start.

One night after a 12-1 loss in the Bronx, the last-place Marlins (5-12) turned the tables to split the two-game series. The listless Yankees committed two costly errors in the first two innings as Miami built a 4-0 lead and finished 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position.

Slumping slugger Giancarlo Stanton struck out two more times and grounded into a double play, finishing 0 for 4 and drawing boos from Yankees fans again.

Last year’s NL MVP, traded to New York in the offseason as part of a payroll purge by new Marlins CEO and former Yankees captain Derek Jeter, went hitless in his first series against his former team.

Stanton is 3 for 35 (.086) with 20 strikeouts at home this season.


TIGERS 4, ORIOLES 2: Victor Martinez homered for the first time since August and Detroit snapped a five-game losing streak with a victory over visiting Baltimore.

Martinez hit a two-run shot in the second, and Jeimer Candelario hit a tiebreaking triple in the fifth for Detroit. Francisco Liriano (2-1) allowed two runs and five hits in five innings. He struck out seven and walked three.

Baltimore managed only one hit off four Detroit relievers. Shane Greene pitched a perfect ninth for his third save. Trey Mancini hit a solo homer for the Orioles, who lost their fourth straight. Andrew Cashner (1-2) allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings.

Rangers 7, Rays 2: Matt Moore allowed an unearned run over seven innings in his first start against his former team as visiting Texas Rangers beat Tampa Bay.

Moore (1-3), who went 39-28 with Tampa Bay before being dealt to San Francisco in 2016, struck out six with five hits and two walks. The Rangers acquired the left-hander from the Giants in December.


ROCKIES 2, PIRATES 0: Chad Bettis pitched into the eighth inning and combined with three relievers on a five-hitter as Colorado won at Pittsburgh.

Bettis allowed five hits in 71/3 innings, striking out three and walking two. Bryan Shaw and Jake McGee got the ball to Wade Davis, who pitched a perfect ninth for his NL-leading eighth save.

The Rockies improved to 5-1 on their seven-game trip to Washington and Pittsburgh and are 9-4 on the road overall.

NATIONALS 5, METS 2: Gio Gonzalez improved to 11-1 at Citi Field, Trea Turner kept Washington in gear all game and the Nationals won at New York.

A day after topping the Mets with an eighth-inning rally from a five-run deficit, the Nationals never trailed.

Bryce Harper put them ahead early with a sacrifice fly and slumping Ryan Zimmerman hit a late RBI single for insurance.

The Mets, whose 12-3 start had matched the best in team history, lost back-to-back games for the first time under new manager Mickey Callaway.
