CHICAGO» Zack God­ley pitched three-hit ball over six score­less in­nings, Jake Lamb drove in all the runs, and the Ari­zona Di­a­mond­backs beat the surg­ing Chicago Cubs 3-0 on Wed­nes­day night.

The loss was just the fourth in 18 games since the all-star break for the NL Cen­tral-lead­ing Cubs. The de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons got shut down by God­ley af­ter pour­ing on a sea­son-high 16 runs in Tues­day’s romp.

Lamb hit a two-run dou­ble against Jake Ar­ri­eta in the sixth and an RBI dou­ble off Justin Wil­son in the eighth.

God­ley (5-4) was every bit as stingy af­ter toss­ing seven score­less in­nings in a win at St. Louis last week. The right-han­der struck out five and walked two. In his past two starts, he has al­lowed a com­bined seven hits while strik­ing out 12.


Tyler Flow­ers had a tiebreak­ing pinch-hit, two-run homer in the eighth in­ning to lift the Braves to a 5-3 win over Los An­ge­les, end­ing the Dodgers’ nine-game win­ning streak. Flow­ers’ first ca­reer pinch-hit homer off Pe­dro Baez (3-2) drove in Jo­han Ca­margo, who walked with two outs. … Rookie Jesse Winker home­red for the sec­ond straight game, hit­ting a tiebreak­ing drive in the sev­enth in­ning off newly ac­quired Pitts­burgh re­liever Joaquin Benoit that sent the Reds over the Pi­rates 5-2. Adam Du­vall home­red and drove in three runs for the Reds. … Vance Wor­ley pitched seven in­nings and faced the min­i­mum num­ber of bat­ters to earn his first vic­tory since May 2016, help­ing the Mar­lins beat the Na­tion­als 7-0. … Jeremy Hel­lick­son threw seven out­stand­ing in­nings in his Orioles de­but, Caleb Joseph home­red and Bal­ti­more beat the Roy­als 6-0 to com­plete a three-game sweep. … J.A. Happ had a sea­son-high 10 strike­outs in seven in­nings, match­ing his long­est start of the sea­son, as the Blue Jays beat the White Sox 5-1. … Ervin San­tana threw a four-hit­ter for his ma­jor league-best fifth com­plete game and hit a two-run sin­gle to lead the Twins to a 5-2 vic­tory against the Padres. The Twins won for just the sec­ond time in nine games. They went 2-6 on a trip through Los An­ge­les, Oak­land and San Diego. … Jor­dan Zim­mer­mann pitched his first score­less out­ing for Detroit in 1½ sea­sons, Justin Up­ton hit an early RBI dou­ble on the 10th an­niver­sary of his ma­jor league de­but, and the Tigers beat the Yan­kees 2-0 in a soggy mati­nee that in­cluded 4 hours, 37 min­utes of rain de­lays and ended well af­ter dark. … Yadier Molina hit two solo home runs, Kolten Wong added a two-run dou­ble, Luke Weaver pitched into the sev­enth in­ning and the Car­di­nals held on for a 5-4 vic­tory over the Brew­ers. … Rookie Austin Pruitt and three re­liev­ers com­bined on a five-hit­ter and the Rays handed Dal­las Keuchel his first loss of the sea­son, beat­ing the Astros 3-0. … Joey Gallo hit an­other im­pres­sively long home run, An­drew Cash­ner won his third straight start and the Rangers beat the Mariners 5-1 on to snap a four-game los­ing streak.
