WASHINGTON (AP) — Ryan Zimmerman delivered a two-run double after Bryce Harper was intentionally walked in the fourth inning, and the Washington Nationals beat the Chicago White Sox 7-4 on a windy Thursday night to cap a three-game sweep.


Dan Haren (1-1) got the win despite allowing 10 hits in five innings.


With the score tied at 3 in the fourth, Haren helped himself by doubling off Dylan Axelrod (0-1) and eventually scoring on a wild pitch with two outs. Chicago then put Harper on base on purpose, but the move didn’t work: Cleanup hitter Zimmerman lined a double to right on Axelrod’s 103rd — and final — pitch of the evening.


That put Washington ahead 6-3, and relievers Ryan Mattheus, Tyler Clippard and Rafael Soriano made it hold up.

DETROIT (AP) — Miguel Cabrera tripled, scored twice and even stole a base, and the Detroit Tigers knocked Josh Johnson out of the game with a five-run second inning en route to an 11-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday.


Doug Fister (2-0) allowed a run and eight hits in eight innings for Detroit. Johnson (0-1) allowed six runs and seven hits in 1 1-3 innings — the shortest start of his career.


Prince Fielder had four RBIs and Torii Hunter added three for the Tigers.


The temperature at game time was 35 degrees — the coldest for a Detroit home game since 1996, according to STATS.


The Blue Jays have not lived up to expectations early because of poor pitching. Their starters are now 1-4 with a 7.59 ERA.

CHICAGO (AP) — Pablo Sandoval hit a two-run double in a four-run fourth inning and the San Francisco Giants rallied from an early five-run deficit to beat the Chicago Cubs 7-6 Thursday.


Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong walked with the bases loaded to tie it in the fifth and Brandon Crawford hit a two-run single two batters later, helping the World Series champion Giants win their fourth in a row.


Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro’s fielding error with two outs in the fourth allowed the first run to score. Scott Feldman (0-2) then gave up an RBI single to Angel Pagan and hit Crawford with a pitch ahead of Sandoval’s double.


Vogelsong (1-1) yielded eight hits and five runs in the first three innings before retiring his final 10 batters in a foggy and damp, 40-degree day.
