The Pirates beat the Marlins 1-0 in a pitching match

Before 26,816 spectators, the ‘Buccaneers’ finally broke the duel at zero in the ninth round, when after one out, the Dominican Starling Mars hit a hit inside the diamond, followed him with unstoppable to center field Josh Bell, setting the scene for the Dickerson’s untractable tugboat.
The victory went to the account of reliever George Kontos (1-1) and the setback for closer Brad Ziegler (0-3), who has not yet tasted the honeys of victory. The rescue was for the Venezuelan Felipe Vázquez (5).
Previously, in Washington, star pitcher Max Scherzer earned his third win of the season by guiding the Nationals in a 6×2 triumph over the Colorado Rockies.
Scherzer (3-1), who has won two Cy Young pitching awards, allowed just two runs for a ticket in the first inning and Charlie Blackmon’s volleyball.
He then left with the carbine on his shoulder five batters in a row.
Scherzer was supported by a four-cornered hit in the quarterfinal of his catcher Matt Wieters, who also added a tug hit in the sixth inning.
The reverse was also for starter Jon Gray (1-3), after holding five touchdowns and eight hits in five innings and two thirds.
– Boston and Rangers smile too –
In Houston, the Texas Rangers went up the slope to beat the defending champions, Houston Astros, with 6×5 slate, thanks to homers by Mexican Joey Gallo, Dominican Adrian Beltre, Venezuelan Ranald Guzman and American Isaiah Kiner Falefa.
Guzman tied the game in the eighth inning with his homerun and then linked a simple drive in the 10th to give the Rangers victory.
Mexican Gallo went 5-4, including a homerun with man on base.
The victory was for reliever Keone Kela (1-0), who closed without problems the ninth act, while head down he left the mound Will Harris (0-1), also depending on fire extinguishers. Boricua Alex Claudio scored the save, his first of the campaign.
For the Astros, Cuba’s Yuliesky Gurriel hit his first four-corners hit of the season.
In Boston, the Red Sox hosts beat the Baltimore Orioles with a 10×3 score, thanks to homers by Dominican Hanley Ramírez and Cuban J.D. Martínez
With the victory, the ‘redheads’ reached a balance of 12-2, the best start to the franchise’s campaign.
Ramirez’s homerun was with a man on base and Martinez’s solitary, while his teammate Andrew Benintende contributed an unstoppable driver of two races.
The reverse was for starter Alex Cox (0-1), who on his debut allowed eight touchdowns in just three innings and two thirds. Cox had signed for four years and 57 million dollars before the season.
The triumph was for Mexican starter Héctor Velázquez (2-0), who bore two scores in five full innings.
The Dominican Pedro Álvarez also homered for Baltimore.
