Soriano lifts Yankees over Rays

GOOD TO BE BACK:Alfonso Soriano’s ninth-inning single made Derek Jeter’s return a triumphant one, while the Indians shut out the Rangers for a second straight game

AP, NEW YORK

Puig, Adrian Gonzalez, Hanley Ramirez and Tim Federowicz each fanned three times as the Dodgers established a team high since 1900.

Puig connected against Curtis Partch (0-1) for his 10th home run and 23rd RBI in 48 big league games. The excitable rookie tossed his bat, circled the bases and then slid into home plate, where teammates were waiting for him after his first game-ending homer.

The NL West leaders won for the 26th time in 32 games and extended their advantage to 2.5 games over Arizona. Brandon League (6-3) pitched two hitless innings for the win.

In other NL action, it was:

‧ Braves 5, Cardinals 2

‧ Marlins 3, Pirates 2

‧ Cubs 2, Giants 1

‧ Nationals 14, Mets 1

‧ Rockies 6, Brewers 5

‧ Padres 1, Diamondbacks 0

In interleague play, it was:

‧ Tigers 12, Phillies 4
