Jason Hammel mowing down Marlins

The Cubs starter has struck out 11 -- his 1st game with at least 10 K's since June 22, 2012 -- through 6 innings. He's allowed just 1 run on 4 hits and walked none. Chicago leads 3-1 entering the 7th inning. Follow live

Good Ubaldo Jimenez present thus far

Holliday keeps streak alive

With a 1st-inning walk tonight, Cardinals OF Matt Holliday has reached base in 45 straight games to start the season. That's a franchise record, and it's the longest streak to start a season since Derek Jeter (53) in 1999. Live on ESPN/WatchESPN

Stanton's legs get Marlins on board

Giancarlo Stanton didn't crush a HR tonight. Not yet, at least. But he singled to right off Cubs starter Jason Hammel, advanced to 2nd on a wild pitch, stole 3rd and scored on an errant throw. Miami still trails 3-1. Follow live

Rangers call up young slugger
