Jesus Luzardo (3-4), making his Marlins debut, earned the win, giving up four hits, three walks and three runs while striking out five in five innings. Dylan Floro inherited a bases-loaded, two-out situation in the eighth and got Brandon Drury on a grounder. He pitched the ninth to pick up his third save.

Indians 5, Blue Jays 2 (10 innings)

Jose Ramirez hit his 23rd homer, a two-run shot in a three-run 10th inning, and Cleveland defeated host Toronto in a matinee to open a four-game series.
