Published: Tuesday, July 24 2012 12:07 a.m. MDT

NEW YORK — Bryce Harper homered his first time up, then hit a tiebreaking single to key a six-run burst in the 10th inning Monday night that sent the Washington Nationals over the Mets 8-2.

Shortstop Ruben Tejada's error on a potential double-play ball set up the big 10th. Ryan Zimmerman hit a three-run double and Michael Morse added a two-run homer as the NL East-leading Nationals broke away.

The Mets lost for the 10th time in 11 games. A day earlier, they gave up five runs in the 12th inning and fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-3.

David Wright and Ike Davis homered for the Mets in their fourth straight defeat. Tim Byrdak (2-2) took the loss.

DODGERS 5, CARDINALS 3: At St. Louis, Chad Billingsley returned from the 15-day disabled list with a strong outing that ended a five-start losing streak and Luis Cruz hit a three-run homer as the Los Angeles Dodgers earned their fifth straight victory.

DIAMONDBACKS 6, ROCKIES 3: At Phoenix, Ian Kennedy had a bases-clearing triple and scattered five hits over eight strong innings to give the Diamondbacks a season-high seven straight wins at home.

GIANTS 7, PADRES 1: At San Francisco, Buster Posey hit a three-run homer, Ryan Vogelsong won for the first time in nearly a month as the San Francisco Giants opened their longest homestand of the season with a victory.

MARLINS 2, BRAVES 1: At Miami, Josh Johnson pitched six scoreless innings and Emilio Bonifacio homered to help the Marlins snap a five-game losing streak.

CUBS 2, PIRATES 0: At Pittsburgh, Jeff Samardzija gave up one hit over eight innings and Alfonso Soriano hit two run-scoring doubles.

PHILLIES 7, BREWERS 6: At Philadelphia, Ty Wigginton hit a sacrifice fly to cap a four-run rally in the ninth inning against Francisco Rodriguez.

REDS 8, ASTROS 3: At Houston, Ryan Ludwick and Todd Frazier had three hits and two RBIs each and Brandon Phillips continued his solid play since the injury to Joey Votto with three hits.

RANGERS 9, RED SOX 1: At Arlington, Texas, Scott Feldman, starting after Roy Oswalt was scratched with back tightness, threw seven strong innings.

INDIANS 3, ORIOLES 1: At Cleveland, Justin Masterson, backed by three double plays, pitched 71/3 strong innings to help the Cleveland Indians avoid a four-game sweep.

WHITE SOX 7, TWINS 4: At Chicago, Adam Dunn hit his majors-leading 29th homer, Gavin Floyd went six innings after coming off the disabled list and the Chicago White Sox ended a five-game losing streak.

YANKEES 4, MARINERS 1: At Seattle, Ichiro Suzuki switched teams in Seattle after a momentous trade and singled his first time up with the New York Yankees.

ANGELS 6, ROYALS 3: At Anaheim, Calif., pinch-hitter Kendrys Morales hit a 3-run double to break a tie in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Yankees trade to get Mariners' Suzuki

SEATTLE — Ichiro Suzuki is headed to a new team and, after all these years, maybe a shot at playing in the World Series.

The New York Yankees acquired the star outfielder from the Seattle Mariners in a trade Monday for two young pitchers.

The Yankees, with the best record in the majors, also got cash in the deal that sent 25-year-old righties D.J. Mitchell and Danny Farquhar to the last-place Mariners.

RANGERS' LEWIS OUT FOR SEASON: Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis will miss the rest of the season because of a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow that will require surgery.

Lewis was evaluated by team physician Dr. Keith Meister before Monday's game against the Boston Red Sox. Meister will perform the operation later this week.

Before the game, Texas manager Ron Washington called Lewis the team's "anchor."

In 16 starts, Lewis is 6-6 with a 3.43 ERA.

ORIOLES' PINIERO TO HAVE SURGERY: Veteran right-hander Joel Pineiro, who pitched in Baltimore's organization this season, will have surgery on his right shoulder Tuesday.

Pineiro has a torn labrum and will also be examined for a possible torn rotator cuff.

The 33-year-old is 104-93 with a 4.41 ERA over 12 major league seasons.

TIGERS ACQUIRE 2 FROM MARLINS: The Detroit Tigers have acquired second baseman Omar Infante and right-hander Anibal Sanchez from Miami, sending 21-year-old righty Jacob Turner and two minor leaguers to the Marlins.

Miami also receives catcher Rob Brantley and left-hander Brian Flynn in the deal.
