PHOENIX (AP) — Trea Turner hit his 14th career leadoff homer, Yan Gomes had five hits and the Washington Nationals pounded the Arizona Diamondbacks 17-2 on Friday night. Turner's ninth homer of the season on Riley Smith's second pitch was a no-doubter into the stands in left-center, and Washington was just getting started. Josh Bell and Gomes added two-run doubles, helping stake Max Scherzer to a 6-0 lead before he ever took the mound. Kyle Schwarber hit a solo homer in the second, and Victor Robles' RBI double made it 8-0 in the third. That was more than enough for Scherzer (3-2), who breezed through the Diamondbacks' injury-depleted lineup. The veteran right-hander struck out seven in five scoreless innings, surrendering just two hits and walking one. The 17 runs were a season high for the Nationals, who also had a season-high 22 hits. Seven players had at least two hits, including Gomes, who finished 5 of 6 and scored four times. Turner and Bell both had three RBIs. Andrew Stevenson hit a three-run homer in the ninth. Smith (1-2) lasted just three innings for Arizona, yielding eight earned runs and eight hits, including seven that went for extra bases. The Diamondbacks have lost nine of their last 11 games. They finished with six hits — two each by David Peralta and Andrew Young — and had a sloppy game in the field with three errors. Washington's Wander Suero pitched a scoreless seventh inning in his first appearance since April 17. Peralta — the D-backs' usual left fielder — pitched the ninth inning. He gave up Stevenson's homer and struck out one. Peralta was originally signed as a pitcher before transitioning to the outfield. MAKING MOVES The Nationals placed left-hander Patrick Corbin on the paternity list and recalled right-hander Paolo Espino. TRAINER'S ROOM Nationals: Robles was hit by a pitch on the back of his left leg and left the game in the fifth. He initially stayed in the game, but after running from first to third he was replaced by Stevenson. Diamondbacks: Placed INF Asdrubal Cabrera on the 10-day IL with a strained right hamstring. Cabrera was hurt during Thursday's game against the Marlins while trying to steal second base. OF Nick Heath was called up from Triple-A Reno. UP NEXT The Diamondbacks will send RHP Seth Frankoff to the mound for his first appearance of the season. He'll face Washington RHP Joe Ross (2-2, 4.26 ERA) on Saturday in the second game of the three-game series. ___ More AP baseball: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports David Brandt, The Associated Press

YOKOHAMA, Japan (AP) — Taylor Knibb won the season-opening World Championship Series triathlon on Saturday to book her place on the U.S. team for the Tokyo Olympics in July. The 23-year-old Knibb finished the Olympic distance of a 1.5-kilometer swim, 40-kilometer cycle and 10-kilometer run in 1 hour, 54 minutes, 27 seconds in a race dominated by Americans. Summer Rappaport, who has already qualified for the Tokyo Games, was second while Taylor Spivey finished fourth. Maya Kingma of the Netherlands was third, preventing an all-American podium. Rappaport was 30 seconds behind Knibb. Kingma finished in 1:55.05 with Spivey 18 seconds behind Kingma. Austrian Julia Hauser was fifth, three seconds behind Spivey. “I wasn’t really thinking about Tokyo, I just wanted to get to that finish line,” Knibb said on the World Triathlon website. “Maya was so good on the technical sections of the bike so I just wanted to pay attention to that and push on the sections where the group was slower. I was just like ‘I gotta run’, knew I just needed second and there wasn’t a lot of time for thinking!” Rappaport said she was happy to be part of an “American one-two." “I was focussed on catching Taylor and Maya after only racing twice since the pandemic, and today I felt I’d found my competitive edge again," she said. Kingma said Knibb surprised her during the cycling leg. “I was prepared to give it everything on the swim and first lap of the bike and hope there was a small group,” Kingma said. “Taylor (Knibb) escaped before I was planning to and she was so strong on the straights, and we pulled away. I was just trying to keep her wheel and I saw the gap growing." American Katie Zaferes was 22nd among the 55 starters in a time of 1:57.12. Zaferes, the 2019 world champion, had podium finishes in the last three races in Yokohama — silvers in 2017 and 2018 and a course-record of 1:52.12 while winning in 2019. The coronavirus pandemic prevented the race from being held in 2020. ___ More AP sports: https://apnews.com/hub/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press

Australia carried out its first repatriation flight from India after temporarily banning all travel from the COVID-ravaged country last month, the government said, with 80 passengers arriving in Darwin on Saturday from New Delhi. Passengers had to show two negative COVID-19 tests before boarding the government-backed Qantas flight and were taken upon arrival to a converted mining camp in Howard Springs in the Northern Territory for a two-week quarantine. The Australian government came under fire for temporarily barring all travel to and from India last month, a policy that drew heavy criticism from lawmakers, expatriates and the Indian diaspora.
