New York — Hanley Ramirez capped a six-hit day with a pair of RBI singles, Yasiel Puig homered to complete a dazzling debut in New York and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Yankees 6-0 last night for a split of their day-night doubleheader.

The Dodgers salvaged manager Don Mattingly’s return to the Bronx after a 6-4 loss in the opener.

Chris Capuano (2-5) pitched three-hit ball for six innings in his comeback from the disabled list. The Dodgers rebounded from a sloppy loss to former teammate Hiroki Kuroda (7-5) in a matchup between injury-ravaged teams with $200 million payrolls.

In the first matchup between the teams in New York since the Dodgers clinched the 1981 World Series title with a Game 6 victory at old Yankee Stadium, Ichiro Suzuki homered, drove in three runs and made a spectacular catch on the warning track for the Yankees.

New York got help from reliever Ronald Belisario’s two errors on the same play in a three-run seventh.

The clubs played a split doubleheader because of a rainout Tuesday night.

Orioles 13, Tigers 3

Detroit — Chris Davis cleared the fences twice, giving him a major-league leading 26 homers, to help Baltimore beat Detroit.

Davis hit a two-run homer and Taylor Teagarden followed with a three-run home run in Baltimore’s six-run fourth. Against embattled reliever Jose Valverde, Davis hit another two-run shot for his second multihomer game of the season and the fifth of his career.

The Orioles improved to a season-high 11 games over .500 after beating the AL Central-leading Tigers twice in the three-game series.

Blue Jays 5, Rockies 2

Toronto — Adam Lind hit a three-run home run, Mark Buehrle won his second straight start and the Blue Jays earned their eighth consecutive victory.

The eight-game streak is Toronto’s longest since a 10-game run in late 2008.

Indians 6, Royals 3

Cleveland — Justin Masterson managed to hang around for 61∕3 innings and win for the sixth time at home, leading Cleveland over Kansas City.

Masterson (9-5) sidestepped some early trouble without giving up any runs and improved to 6-1 with a 2.29 ERA in nine starts at Progressive Field. The right-hander struck out eight while allowing two runs and nine hits.

Giants 4, Padres 2

San Francisco — Gregor Blanco had a pinch hit, two-run triple in the seventh inning, leading San Francisco over San Diego.

Brandon Belt and Marco Scutaro also drove in runs as the Giants won their second straight following a three-game slide. Scutaro and Hunter Pence each had two hits.

Diamondbacks 3, Marlins 1

Phoenix — Cody Ross hit a three-run, pinch-hit home run in the eighth inning to spoil an outstanding outing by Miami’s young Jose Fernandez, and Arizona held off the Marlins.

Fernandez (4-4) retired 14 in a row before walking two of the three batters he faced in the eighth. He was relieved by left-hander Mike Dunn, who gave up the home run to Ross on a 1-2 pitch.

Braves 5, Mets 3

Atlanta — Chris Johnson homered for the first time in more than a month, Kris Medlen overcame a defensive blunder and Atlanta bounced back from a doubleheader sweep.

Johnson hit a three-run homer in the fourth, his first time going deep since May 13. Jordan Schafer put the Braves ahead to stay with some gutsy baserunning in the fifth, scoring on a wild pitch that didn’t even roll off the dirt around home plate.

Nationals 6, Phillies 2 (11)

Philadelphia — Ian Desmond hit a grand slam in the 11th inning and Washington beat Philadelphia, avoiding a three-game sweep.

Jayson Werth’s RBI single with two outs in the ninth tied it off Jonathan Papelbon, who blew a save for the second time in three nights after starting the season 13 for 13.

Starters Kyle Kendrick and Gio Gonzalez both were outstanding, but wound up with no-decisions.
