Volquez has struck out six, walked one and has thrown 75 pitches.

Hats off to Edinson Volquez, who actually faced the minimum 27 batters here. It was the Marlins' first no-hitter since Henderson Alvarez pitched one against Detroit on the final day of the 2013 regular season.

The surprising Arizona Diamondbacks (33-22), one of only top six teams in the major leagues playing at least.600 ball this season, are set to invade Marlins Park on Thursday night to play the Miami Marlins (21-30). Pittsburgh won the game on a walkoff homer by Andrew McCutchen in the bottom of the ninth inning. Delgado has fared well against Miami, posting a 2-0 mark with a 1.54 ERA in his four previous starts. Gardner led it off with a home run and then with two outs, Holliday, Castro and Gregorius connected in succession.

Wade Davis earned his 12th save and Hector Rondon (1-1) notched the win. Yadier Molina homered and Jose Martinez had two RBIs for the Cardinals. He had been 0-5 in seven starts against Toronto since beating the Blue Jays on April 6, 2014.

MIAMI (AP) - Edinson Volquez's day was almost over after three pitches.

"This is one of those days, you didn't know what was going to happen", Volquez said.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Ryon Healy had two doubles and two homers, Jed Lowrie doubled twice and homered, and the Athletics beat the Washington Nationals. He started Game 1 on the same day his father died.

The Twins overcame two solo home runs from Los Angeles' Kole Calhoun, while keeping Albert Pujols stuck at career home-run No.599.

TORONTO - CC Sabathia won his fourth consecutive start, Aaron Hicks had a career-high six RBIs and Gary Sanchez homered twice to lead NY over Toronto. The Indians scored four runs, three of them unearned, off Jharel Cotton in a wild sixth inning, when the game was momentarily delayed when sprinklers in left field went on automatically. And he strongly considered leaving the game after five innings because of sharp ankle pain.

That day he tossed eight innings, allowed four hits, one run and struck out five for the Kansas City Royals in a 4-1 win over the Chicago White Sox. Miami are 4-1 in their last 5 overall and Miami are 4-1 in their last 5 home games while Miami are 1-4 in their last 5 versus the NL West. Volquez was one of the pitchers the Marlins brought in this past offseason in part to fill the void caused by the death of Fernandez.

Whit Merrifield and Mike Moustakas had two-run doubles off Carlos Carrasco (5-3) during the Royals' big inning, helping them overcome a 3-0 hole and ensure a series win over their division rival.

Kluber (4-2) had been sidelined with a strained lower back, an injury that kept Cleveland's ace sidelined for a month.
