National League roundup
Cincinnati 4, Philadelphia 3: Jay Bruce hit a tworun homer in the eighth inning off Roy Halladay, rallying the Reds to yet another win in their final at-bat. Joey Votto also homered off Halladay (9-7), who fell to 2-4 since his perfect game on May 29. Jonny Gomes opened the eighth with a single, and Bruce connected for Cincinnati’s 25th comeback win — most in the majors. The Reds have 14 wins in their last at-bat, tied for the major league lead.
Arizona 4, St. Louis 2: Barry Enright gave the Diamondbacks five solid innings as the fill-in for Edwin Jackson and Chris Young hit a two-run home run. Young was in a 1 for 18 slump and his career average at St. Louis was down to .125 before he hit his 14th homer in the fifth for a 3-1 lead.
San Diego 13, Colorado 3: Clayton Richard struck out a career-high 10 and drove in two runs, and Scott Hairston hit a three-run double and finished with four RBIs as the Padres routed the Rockies to avoid a three-game sweep. Every Padres regular had at least one hit. Hairston had four RBIs for the second time in three games for the first-place club.
Los Angeles 8, San Francisco 2: Matt Kemp homered and drove in three runs, Vicente Padilla won his 100th game, and the Dodgers completed a threegame sweep of the Giants in San Francisco.
Atlanta 4, Washington 1: Jair Jurrjens gave up one run and had a run-scoring single in his first start in two months for the Braves. Four Atlanta relievers combined to throw four scoreless innings.
Pittsburgh 2, Chicago 0: Brad Lincoln pitched seven shutout innings for his first major league win as the Pirates continued their mastery of the Cubs. Last-place Pittsburgh is 9-3 against Chicago.
