Mets 5, Nationals 3: Stephen Strasburg surrendered three hits over two innings - including a single and home run to the first two batters he faced - in his first action since Sept. 7. David Wright was hitless in three at-bats for New York, but Marlon Byrd went 2-for-2 and scored a run in his team debut.
Marlins 8, Cardinals 3: Juan Pierre collected two hits, scored twice and drove in a run while Giancarlo Stanton drove in two runs for Miami, which likely lost catcher Jeff Mathis for six weeks with a broken right collarbone. David Freese connected on a second-inning solo shot off Marlins starter John Maine and Matt Adams added two RBIs on two hits for St. Louis.
Blue Jays 10, Tigers 3: Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder each homered for Detroit while free-agent signee Torii Hunter collected a hit and scored a run. Brett Lawrie drove in a pair of runs with a single in the third inning and pinch hitter Lance Zawadzki - a non-roster invitee - belted a sixth-inning grand slam for Toronto.
Yankees 8, Braves 3: Robinson Cano hit a solo homer and scored twice while Austin Romine and Zoilo Almonte each finished with two RBIs for New York, which got a pair of scoreless innings from starter David Phelps. Freddie Freeman scored a run and was one of two Atlanta players to collect two hits, but former Los Angeles Angels closer Jordan Walden surrendered four runs - one earned - in one inning.
Rays (ss) 4, Red Sox 3: Non-roster invitee Leslie Anderson homered and Desmond Jennings went 2-for-2 for Tampa Bay. Jacoby Ellsbury went 1-for-2 after a shoulder injury that limited him to 74 games in 2012 while Boston starter John Lackey allowed a run and a hit in his return from the Tommy John surgery that sidelined him all of last season.
Orioles 5, Twins 3: Josh Willingham belted a two-run homer and was one of three Minnesota players to finish with two hits, including Eduardo Escobar and non-roster invitee Clete Thomas. Baltimore's Trayvon Robinson, another non-roster invitee, broke a tie in the eighth with a two-run blast while Chris Davis went 2-for-2.
Astros 8, Phillies 3: Cole Hamels struck out one over two scoreless innings for Philadelphia, but the bullpen gave up eight runs and 13 hits following his departure. Robbie Grossman and Nate Frieman paced Houston's offense with two RBIs apiece and Chase Utley was one of three players to drive in a run for the Phillies.
Pirates 3, Rays (ss) 2: Jeff Locke made an early case for a rotation spot with three hitless innings and non-roster invitee Darren Ford went 2-for-2 for Pittsburgh. Kelly Johnson and Yunel Escobar each went 1-for-2 in their debuts while Roberto Hernandez, Jeff Niemann and Fernando Rodney each pitched a hitless inning for Tampa Bay.
