Final Score: Philadelphia 12, Miami 2
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Cliff Lee recorded a season-high 14
strikeouts and drove in a career-high four runs to guide the Philadelphia
Phillies to a 12-2 win over the Miami Marlins. Lee (14-6) was spectacular on
the hill, spinning eight innings while allowing just the two runs on eight
hits. Perhaps more impressive was the left-hander's effort at the dish, as
Lee went a career-best 3-for-4, including his first career triple. Chase
Utley and Darin Ruf homered for Philly, which won for the sixth time in
its last seven home tilts. Utley also drove in the first four Phillies runs
while Cesar Hernandez added two hits, two runs and an RBI. Justin Ruggiano
and Adeiny Hechavarria drove in a run apiece for Miami, which saw starter Sam
Dyson (0-1) last just 2 2/3 innings. The Miami rookie, making his first start
in the majors, allowed seven runs on six hits and four walks.
Final Score: San Diego 2, Pittsburgh 0
Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Andrew Cashner carried a perfect game into
the seventh inning en route to his first career shutout as the San Diego
Padres blanked the Pittsburgh Pirates, 2-0, in the opener of a four-game set
at PNC Park. Cashner (10-8) had his bid come to an end on Jose Tabata's
leadoff single in the seventh. It was the only baserunner the right-hander
allowed. Cashner struck out seven. Will Venable and Jedd Gyorko drove in one
run apiece for the Padres, winners in three of their last four games. A.J.
Burnett (8-11) allowed both runs on six hits while striking out eight
over 6 2/3 innings to absorb the loss. Despite the setback, the Pirates remain
tied with St. Louis Cardinals for the top spot in the NL Central.
Final Score: Milwaukee 6, Chicago 1
Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Caleb Gindl finished a double shy of the
cycle as the Milwaukee Brewers bested the Chicago Cubs, 6-1, in the opener of
a four-game set from Miller Park. Gindl went 3-for-3 with a three RBI and
three runs scored for Milwaukee, which won for the fourth time in five
games. The Brewers' rookie has homered in consecutive games for the second
time in his career. Wily Peralta (10-15) gave up just an unearned run on five
hits while striking out seven. It was his first start since July 21 without
surrendering an earned run. Cubs' starter Edwin Jackson (8-16) absorbed the
loss after yielding two runs on two hits in four innings. Starlin Castro
had a pair of hits and the lone Chicago RBI.
Final Score: Colorado 6, St. Louis 2
Denver, CO (Sports Network) - The Colorado Rockies rallied for four runs in
the eighth inning to down the St. Louis Cardinals, 6-2, in the opener of a
four-game set at Coors Field. With runners on the corners and one out, Wilin
Rosario laced a single to left field to score Troy Tulowitzki. After Josh
Rutledge reached on a fielder's choice, Charlie Blackmon doubled to left
field to score Tyler Chatwood, chasing Trevor Rosenthal (2-4) from the
game. Ryan Wheeler welcomed John Axford with a two-run single to left to
make it 6-2. Despite blowing a one-run lead in the eighth, Chad Bettis (1-3)
picked up the win. Starter Collin McHugh allowed just on run on four hits over
five innings. St. Louis starter Lance Lynn worked 6 1/3 innings of two-run
ball, allowing just six hits and one walk while fanning four. The Cardinals
remain tied with the Pittsburgh Pirates atop the NL Central standings. The
Pirates fell to the San Diego Padres earlier on Monday.
Final Score: Arizona 2, Los Angeles 1
Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - Trevor Cahill allowed just one run over 5 1/3
innings to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks past the Los Angeles Dodgers, 2-1, on
Monday. Cahill (7-10) allowed just two hits, walked four and struck out
four to get the win. Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer for the
Diamondbacks, who were held to just two hits. Brad Ziegler stranded a pair of
runners in the ninth to pick up his 11th save of the season. Hyun-Jin Ryu
(13-7) was the hard-luck loser, giving up just two hits, including
Goldschmidt's homer, over eight brilliant innings. Yasiel Puig drove in the
lone run for the Dodgers, who hold a healthy 9 1/2 game lead over Arizona
atop the NL West standings.
Final Score: Cincinnati 6, Houston 1
Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Johnny Cueto made a successful return while
Zack Cozart homered and drove in four runs to lead the Cincinnati Reds past
the Houston Astros, 6-1, in the opener of a three-game interleague series.
Cueto (5-2) missed nearly three months with a strained right lat muscle but
showed no rust in limiting the Astros to five hits over five scoreless frames.
Jay Bruce added a two-run single for the Reds, who rebounded from a 2-4
stretch and extended their lead over the Washington Nationals to five games
for the NL's second wild card spot. Erik Bedard (4-11) was saddled with the
loss after allowing four runs on four hits over four innings of work in
Houston's third straight setback.
