MIAMI - Marlins ace Jose Fernandez was struck in the thigh by a sharp grounder and kept pitching despite discomfort. Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig slammed into the wall trying unsuccessfully for a game-saving catch and crumpled to the warning track in pain. A seesaw struggle Sunday left both teams hurting, but it stung more for Los Angeles. Miami improved baseballs best home record when Jeff Baker hit an RBI double off the wall with two outs in the ninth inning to win 5-4. Puig slammed into the wall trying for an acrobatic catch and was shaken up but not seriously hurt. Teammates ran out to check on him while the Marlins celebrated a wild victory. "Just exactly how we drew it up," manager Mike Redmond said with a grin. Fernandez avoided a serious injury in the fifth when he was hit on the back of the left leg by a sharp grounder off the bat of Dee Gordon. Asked whether he expected to make his next start, Fernandez said, "Probably I will be fine." The Marlins improved to 13-5 at home, while their 2-10 road record is the worst in the majors. "We have a comfort level here," Redmond said. "I love our approach here. We seem to play with so much confidence in this ballpark, and today you could just feel the energy." Giancarlo Stanton homered twice and drove in three runs for Miami, giving him the NL leads with 10 home runs and 36 RBIs. Teammate Christian Yelich hit his second home run. Los Angeles came from behind three times, and a blown save cost Fernandez the victory. With Marlins closer Steve Cishek unavailable after pitching in three consecutive games, A.J. Ramos (2-0) tried to protect a one-run lead in the ninth for his first career save. But Chone Figgins walked and scored on a double by Andre Ethier with no outs. A diving stop by shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria and an overturned call on a force play at second base helped the Marlins escape the inning with the score tied. Hechavarria started the bottom of the ninth with a single off Jamey Wright (2-2) and advanced to third on a sacrifice and a groundout. Baker followed with a drive to right, and a retreating Puig slammed his head and lower left leg against the fence. The ball deflected off the wall and hit Puig in the face, and he collapsed to his stomach. Puig was slow to walk off the field but passed a concussion test. The Dodgers said his status is day to day. "He hit the wall good," manager Don Mattingly said. "He seemed to be OK when he was walking in, but Im sure they are going to keep looking at him. He almost made an unbelievable play." Fernandez briefly thought his day might be done when Gordons comebacker struck him. "It hit me hard," Fernandez said. "Right away my hamstring became really tight. I didnt know if I was going to keep throwing. After that it was a little tougher to pitch. It was getting tighter and tighter and tighter." Fernandez went on to pitch seven innings, left with a 4-3 lead and remained unbeaten at home in 20 career starts. But he lacked his customary command, allowing four walks, and they led to both earned runs against him. "It wasnt an easy game," Fernandez said. "Like everybody knows, the Dodgers are one of the best teams in the league. Thats why they get paid the way they get paid." Fernandez, the 2013 NL Rookie of the Year, has yet to allow more than two earned runs in a home start. The only other pitcher in the past 100 years to allow fewer than three earned runs in 20 consecutive home starts was Orel Hershiser in 1985-86. The Marlins rank last in the NL in attendance but enjoy a bump when Fernandez pitches, and his latest win drew 30,145. Stanton lived up to his reputation for jaw-dropping homers. He hit a two-run tape-measure homer in the first inning, then lined another homer off the nightclub facade in left field leading off the sixth to put Miami ahead 4-3. "Its almost like you sort of get used to it, which is crazy," Redmond said. "The second one was like a 54-degree wedge you want to keep down in the wind. I dont know if Ive ever seen a baseball hit that hard on a line." NOTES: OF Nick Buss, designated for assignment by the Dodgers on April 30, was claimed by Oakland. ...

If, that is, the Bearkats success in the postseason hadnt been occurring during North Dakota States four-year dynasty. The Bison did it again to Sam Houston Friday night as senior running back John Crockett totaled 232 yards from scrimmage and scored three touchdowns in eliminating the Bearkats, 35-3, in the FCS semifinals at the Fargodome. Next up for the second-seeded Bison (14-1) is a return to the national championship game in Frisco, Texas, where on Jan. 10 they will try to win an unprecedented fourth straight FCS title against either fellow Missouri Valley Conference member Illinois State or top-seeded New Hampshire, who play in the other semifinal on Saturday. The first two of North Dakota States three straight wins in the national final came against Sam Houston. The Bison are a combined 57-3 over the last four seasons, and their senior class has the chance to finish with more national championships than losses in their career. The visiting Bearkats (11-5) from the Southland Conference had hoped for a different result under their first-year coach K.C. Keeler, who had led Delaware to the FCS title in 2003 as well as two other championship appearances. But the Bison, after playing poorly on offense in first half, ran away from the Bearkats behind Crockett (166 rushing yards, 66 receiving) and their powerful offensive line as well as a defense that slowed down Sam Houstons speed in the skills positions. The Bison extended their playoff winning streak to 15 games and their home winning streak to 23. North Dakota State managed only 99 yards in the first half while taking a 7-3 halftime lead, but the Bison nearly matched that total on their second drive of the third quarter when they began to take control of the game. On the third play, Crockett went undefended coming out of the backfield for a 35-yard reception from quarterback Carson Wentz. On the next play, Crocketts backup, King Fraazier, sliced through the Sam Houston defensive line for a 33- yard touchdown run which put the Bison ahead 14-3 midway the quarter.dddddddddddd On the first play of North Dakota States next drive, Crockett went around left end to explode for a 55-yard touchdown run which extended the lead to 21-3 with 6:52 remaining in the quarter. That margin is usually insurmountable for North Dakota State, but for good measure, Crockett scored on a 10-yard run early in the fourth quarter before Wentz connected with R.J. Urzendowski for a 14-yard touchdown pass with 3:18 left to play. In the statement performance by coach Chris Kliemans squad, the Bison outgained Sam Houston by a decisive 217 yards to 49 in the third quarter and 398-338 overall to end the Bearkats eight-game winning streak. The Bisons improved offensive success in the second half was welcomed after they clung to the 7-3 halftime lead. After the first three Sam Houston possessions didnt produce a first down in the first quarter, the Bison ran off a nine-play, 68-yard scoring drive for a 7-0 lead. Crockett caught a 31-yard reception on the drive and then went off right tackle to ease into the Sam Houston end zone from 3 yards out with 3:52 left. Sam Houston quarterback Jared Johnsons 39-yard pass to Gerald Thomas to the Bison 11 on the first play of the second quarter set up the Bearkats for their only score, Luc Swimberghes 22-yard field goal which completed a 15-play, 82- yard drive and pulled them within 7-3 with 13:37 left in the first half. On Sam Houstons following drive, Swimberghe missed a 46-yard field goal attempt. Johnson, facing great pressure by Bison pass rushers, was 20-for-31 for 227 yards and was picked off in the fourth quarter by linebacker Nick DeLuca, and he added another 66 yards on 25 carries. Wentz was 13-for-19 for 179 yards and one interception in the win. North Dakota State sophomore wide receiver Carey Woods left the game on a stretcher midway through the first quarter after taking a hit to the back of his neck on a 9-yard reception.
