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.
