But if Sunday is any indication, the Cubs have found a top-of-the-rotation pitcher.

Jiménez, meanwhile, ceded 11 hits before he was pulled in the fourth inning, many of them rockets that found patches of outfield grass.

"That's really frustrating to be that close to getting out of an inning unscathed", manager Buck Showalter said.

If there is any reason the Mets do not trade Jacob deGrom it is because they simply can not rely on any of their other starters to be consistent. They're on the top of their game. There were a lot of good numbers put up by the offense in this set especially from Heyward (6-13, 6 RBI, 1 HR, 1 SB) and Contreras (8-14, 4 RBI, 1 HR). "We were not up to the challenge".

MARINERS 7, WHITE SOX 6: At Chicago, Nelson Cruz homered on a 3-0 pitch from Chris Beck (1-1) leading off the 10th inning, his 19th home run this season, as Seattle overcame a 5-0 deficit and won its fourth straight.

"It was my first outing with the Cubs, but after the first inning, I felt really good", Quintana said.

"That's in the past for me now, " Quintana said. "I would think our guys will be excited to play behind him for the first time". He lasted 42/3 innings, surrendering seven earned runs on nine hits and four walks. I was fortunate enough to be able to play here for a few years.

He certainly dazzled his new teammates in his debut. Left-hander Donnie Hart retired all six batters he faced before turning the ball over to Mychal Givens, who fanned two and retired all four batters tasked to him.

A YANKEES, RED SOX split: C.C. Sabathia (8-3) allowed two hits over six innings, and visiting NY won 3-0 in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.

At Marlins Park in Miami, Junichi Tazawa pitched a scoreless inning of relief for the fifth time in as many games, but the Los Angeles Dodgers scored three runs in the ninth in a 6-4 victory over the Marlins. Not yet. The Cubs still need another starter, and maybe two if Kyle Hendricks can't come back to pitch the way he did before he developed the hand issue. He was facing a Cubs team that had the second-best on-base-plus slugging percentage in the National League against left-handed pitchers. Offensively, almost every Orioles player contributed. Catcher Welington Castillo singled to left in the fifth inning, and shortstop Jonathan Schoop singled to center to open the seventh.

The All-Star second baseman Schoop made his second start of the season at shortstop and again looked at home there.

ROCKIES 13, METS 4: At New York, Ian Desmond provided an instant spark for the slumping Rockies in his return from the disabled list, and Nolan Arenado hit one of Colorado's three homers.
