Steve Cishek gave up a single and a walk in the ninth, but retired Garrett Jones on a grounder for the final out to earn his 22nd save in 24 chances.
Tino Martinez resigned as Miami’s hitting coach following the game, hours after complaints by players that he verbally abused them became public.
NATIONALS 14, METS 1
Wilson Ramos hit a grand slam and rookie right-hander Taylor Jordan had six strong innings for his first major league win to lead Washington to the rout of New York.
The Nationals won their third game in a row and fourth in five to salvage a tumultuous 11-game homestand.
They lost the first six games after the All-Star break, fired hitting coach Rick Eckstein last Monday and demoted former closer Drew Storen to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.
TIGERS 12, PHILLIES 4
Jhonny Peralta’s grand slam capped an eight-run sixth inning and Detroit overcame Miguel Cabrera’s ejection to beat collapsing Philadelphia.
Cabrera was tossed while batting with the bases loaded in the third and manager Jim Leyland was ejected, too. Detroit still got plenty of additional chances against a Philadelphia team that stumbled to its eighth straight loss.
In the sixth, the Tigers scored eight runs on only two hits. The Phillies made three errors and walked three batters in the inning.
Rick Porcello (8-6) allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings to win his fourth straight start.
Reliever Jake Diekman (0-1) took the loss.
