MIAMI - Marlins ace Jose Fernandez was struck in the thigh by a sharp grounder and kept pitching despite discomfort. Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig slammed into the wall trying unsuccessfully for a game-saving catch and crumpled to the warning track in pain. A seesaw struggle Sunday left both teams hurting, but it stung more for Los Angeles. Miami improved baseballs best home record when Jeff Baker hit an RBI double off the wall with two outs in the ninth inning to win 5-4. Puig slammed into the wall trying for an acrobatic catch and was shaken up but not seriously hurt. Teammates ran out to check on him while the Marlins celebrated a wild victory. "Just exactly how we drew it up," manager Mike Redmond said with a grin. Fernandez avoided a serious injury in the fifth when he was hit on the back of the left leg by a sharp grounder off the bat of Dee Gordon. Asked whether he expected to make his next start, Fernandez said, "Probably I will be fine." The Marlins improved to 13-5 at home, while their 2-10 road record is the worst in the majors. "We have a comfort level here," Redmond said. "I love our approach here. We seem to play with so much confidence in this ballpark, and today you could just feel the energy." Giancarlo Stanton homered twice and drove in three runs for Miami, giving him the NL leads with 10 home runs and 36 RBIs. Teammate Christian Yelich hit his second home run. Los Angeles came from behind three times, and a blown save cost Fernandez the victory. With Marlins closer Steve Cishek unavailable after pitching in three consecutive games, A.J. Ramos (2-0) tried to protect a one-run lead in the ninth for his first career save. But Chone Figgins walked and scored on a double by Andre Ethier with no outs. A diving stop by shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria and an overturned call on a force play at second base helped the Marlins escape the inning with the score tied. Hechavarria started the bottom of the ninth with a single off Jamey Wright (2-2) and advanced to third on a sacrifice and a groundout. Baker followed with a drive to right, and a retreating Puig slammed his head and lower left leg against the fence. The ball deflected off the wall and hit Puig in the face, and he collapsed to his stomach. Puig was slow to walk off the field but passed a concussion test. The Dodgers said his status is day to day. "He hit the wall good," manager Don Mattingly said. "He seemed to be OK when he was walking in, but Im sure they are going to keep looking at him. He almost made an unbelievable play." Fernandez briefly thought his day might be done when Gordons comebacker struck him. "It hit me hard," Fernandez said. "Right away my hamstring became really tight. I didnt know if I was going to keep throwing. After that it was a little tougher to pitch. It was getting tighter and tighter and tighter." Fernandez went on to pitch seven innings, left with a 4-3 lead and remained unbeaten at home in 20 career starts. But he lacked his customary command, allowing four walks, and they led to both earned runs against him. "It wasnt an easy game," Fernandez said. "Like everybody knows, the Dodgers are one of the best teams in the league. Thats why they get paid the way they get paid." Fernandez, the 2013 NL Rookie of the Year, has yet to allow more than two earned runs in a home start. The only other pitcher in the past 100 years to allow fewer than three earned runs in 20 consecutive home starts was Orel Hershiser in 1985-86. The Marlins rank last in the NL in attendance but enjoy a bump when Fernandez pitches, and his latest win drew 30,145. Stanton lived up to his reputation for jaw-dropping homers. He hit a two-run tape-measure homer in the first inning, then lined another homer off the nightclub facade in left field leading off the sixth to put Miami ahead 4-3. "Its almost like you sort of get used to it, which is crazy," Redmond said. "The second one was like a 54-degree wedge you want to keep down in the wind. I dont know if Ive ever seen a baseball hit that hard on a line." NOTES: OF Nick Buss, designated for assignment by the Dodgers on April 30, was claimed by Oakland. ...

Now, they hope to keep it going. Travis Wood pitched hitless ball into the sixth inning and the Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-0 Sunday, taking two of three at Citizens Bank Park. Anthony Rizzo hit his 14th home run and Starlin Castro added three hits for Chicago. The last-place Cubs had been 0-9-3 in road series this year, and hadnt won a set away from Chicago since last Sept. 9-11. This was the Cubs first series win in Philadelphia since April 2001. The Cubs begin a three-game trip at Miami on Monday. "Its good to win a series on the road," Rizzo said. "We can take that into Miami with us." The Phillies finished with just three hits against Wood (7-5) and closer Neil Ramirez while being shut out for the ninth time this year. Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg seemed frustrated that Philadelphias hitters didnt adjust to Wood. "The guy was pitching up in the zone and we were hitting flyballs," Sandberg said. "For us not to make an adjustment and not get on top of some of those balls, those are hittable balls." Wood didnt allow a hit until Ben Reveres one-out single in the sixth. He gave up three hits in eight innings while striking out six and walking three. "I felt really good today," Wood said. "The cutter inside was working well, and they were kind of jamming themselves." The right-hander said he was aware of the potential no-hitter. "You always know about it," he said. "Besides, a guy in the stands let me know about it." Ramirez got his third save. A.J. Burnett (4-6) gave up three runs and eight hits in eight innings. He moved past Hall of Famer Eddie Plank into 50th place on the career strikeout list with his fifth-inning fanning of Luis Valbuena, giving him 2,252. Centre fielder Ryan Sweeney kept Woods pitching line scoreless when he caught Chase Utleys drive to the warning track to end the eighth, finishing on his knees for the grab. It was that kind of day for Philadelphias tepid offence, which ranks near the bottom of the league in several offensive categories. "Our pitching has kept us in games," Sandberg said.dddddddddddd "On the offensive side, its about picking things up on offence." Burnett, though, didnt blame his teammates for the defeat. "Our guys aint going out there trying to get out," he said. "He came out and made good pitches against us all game. Its not frustrating on my part because I have a job to do." The Cubs got all of the offence they needed in the first inning. Rizzo staked Wood to an early lead with a solo homer in the first. It marked the eighth straight game in which the Cubs have hit a home run at Citizens Bank Park, totalling 12 drives in that span. "Hes hit quite a few home runs and some big ones, too," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. The Cubs tacked on a run in the third on Castros RBI single and then made it 3-0 in the sixth on Nate Schierholtzs RBI double. A day after passing Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt to become the Phillies all-time leader with 2,235 hits, Jimmy Rollins went 1 for 4. Philadelphia threatened in the sixth when Rollins singled to put runners on first and second with one out, but Utley and Marlon Byrd popped out. The Phillies won a challenge in the third inning when first-base umpire Gary Cederstroms safe call of Rizzo was overturned after video review. NOTES: Phillies hard-throwing rookie Ken Giles, called up last Sunday, hit 100 mph on the radar gun with three pitches during a scoreless inning of relief in the eighth. ... Castro improved to 13-for-29 lifetime off Burnett. ... To commemorate the 1964 club that nearly reached the World Series, the Phillies wore throwback uniforms from that season. Hall of Famer Jim Bunning, who threw the only perfect game on Fathers Day in major league history for the Phillies against the Mets 50 years ago, tossed out the ceremonial first pitch. And, in keeping with the 60s theme, Art Garfunkel sank "God Bless America" during the seventh-inning stretch. ... Philadelphia LHP Cole Hamels (2-3, 3.07) opposes Braves RHP Julio Teheran (6-4, 2.41) in Atlanta on Monday night. ... Chicago RHP Jason Hammel (6-4, 2.81) will face RHP Tom Koehler (5-5, 3.68) in Miami on Monday night.
