Giancarlo Stanton got on base 5 times, drove in 5 runs including a walk off bottom of the 9th grand slam, sealing the Marlins 8-4 win over the Mariners.

Howie Kendrick went 3-5 including a pair of homers and 4 RBI as the Angels topped the Tigers, 11-6.

Aaron Harang threw 7 no hit innings for the Braves. His wildness and high pitch count kept him from finishing the game (the Mets would eventually get a hit) but he got the 6-0 win.

Martin Perez threw a complete game 3 hit shutout, striking out 8 and walking just 1 as the Rangers slammed the White Sox, 12-0.

They owned baseball on April.18, 2014.

Russell Martin got on base 3 times and drove in 2 runs in a losing cause. The Pirates fell to the Brewers, 5-3.

Matt Cain threw 7 solid innings with 1 unearned run, striking out 8 Padres. The Giants bats were dead, however, and Cain got the tough luck 2-1 loss.

Jacoby Ellsbury got a pair of hits, a stolen base and a run scored, helping the Yankees jump out to an early lead. Their bullpen would collapse as the Rays won 11-5.

Justin Masterson pitched well into the 7th, striking out 9 and walking just 2. His bullpen would blow the lead as the Indians fell 3-2 to the Blue Jays.
