WASHINGTON (AP) - Kike Hernandez and Yasiel Puig each hit two-run homers, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Washington Nationals 7-2 to complete a three-game sweep. Hernandez's blast off Stephen Strasburg in the fifth inning put the Dodgers up 3-2. Yasmani Grandal also homered off Strasburg, who allowed three runs and five hits over 6 2/3 innings with seven strikeouts. Alex Wood got the win, allowing two earned runs in six innings.

BOSTON (AP) - J.D. Martinez hit two vastly different drives for his first multihomer game with Boston, powering Eduardo Rodriguez and the Red Sox to a rare 13-hit shutout in a 5-0 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. Martinez drove in three runs, and Andrew Benintendi had a two-run homer among his three hits as the Red Sox won three of four in the series to improve to 6-1 against Baltimore this season.

(AP) - The play of Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy has turned the Eastern Conference final around and put the Capitals on the brink of elimination.
