Final Score: Detroit 4, LA Dodgers 1

Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Max Scherzer outdueled Zack Greinke in a much-anticipated pitching matchup Wednesday afternoon at Comerica Park. Scherzer (11-3) allowed just one run on four hits over seven innings, helping the Tigers down the Dodgers 4-1 and complete a two-game series sweep. The right-hander struck out seven and walked two, winning his third straight decision. Greinke (11-4), meanwhile, had some early trouble and his offense couldn't respond against the Tigers pitching. The trifecta of Scherzer, Joba Chamberlain and Joe Nathan held Los Angeles to just four hits overall, two of which came from Yasiel Puig. Greinke was charged with three runs on seven hits in seven frames. He struck out eight without walking a batter, seeing a two-start win streak come to a halt. Austin Jackson had two hits and scored twice and Don Kelly also had two hits and drove in run for the Tigers, who won three of four from the Dodgers this season.

Final Score: Colorado 6, San Diego 3

Denver, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Troy Tulowitzki got in some good prep work for the upcoming Home Run Derby, with the National League captain socking two of five Colorado long balls in the Rockies' 6-3 victory over the San Diego Padres. Tulowitzki's second solo blast of the day came immediately after Drew Stubbs belted a two-run shot off Joaquin Benoit (3-1) that snapped a 3-3 tie in the eighth inning. Charlie Blackmon went deep earlier for Colorado and finished 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored, with Wilin Rosario also homering in the triumph. The power surge, along with 4 1/3 scoreless innings of work from four Rockies relievers, enabled Colorado to earn back-to-back wins for the first time since a season-high five-game streak from June 11-15. Boone Logan (2-1) tossed a perfect top of the eighth to notch the victory, with LaTroy Hawkins working a hitless ninth to pick up his 17th save. San Diego put up a pair of solo homers in defeat, including the first of Jake Goebbert's major league career. Seth Smith had the other as part of a 2-for-3 performance.

Final Score: Arizona 4, Miami 3 (10 innings)

Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Paul Goldschmidt's two-run, game-winning double in the 10th inning gave the Arizona Diamondbacks a 4-3 victory over the Miami Marlins in the rubber match of a three-game set on Wednesday. Steve Cishek (4-5) took the mound for the Marlins in the bottom of the 10th after his team took a 3-1 lead in the top half of the frame. Aaron Hill singled and Ender Inciarte walked before David Peralta's single to center got Arizona within one. Goldschmidt lined a first-pitch slider to the warning track in left-center field to plate both runners and give the Diamondbacks the come-from-behind victory.

Final Score: Washington 6, Baltimore 2

Baltimore, MD (SportsNetwork.com) - Doug Fister threw seven strong innings and Washington got solo home runs from Wilson Ramos, Ian Desmond and Jayson Werth in a 6-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday night. Fister (8-2), who won his third straight decision, gave up seven hits and a pair of runs, while recording two walks and three strikeouts. The right-hander was removed after throwing 113 pitches, 73 for strikes. Werth and Adam LaRoche drove in two runs, as the NL East-leading Nationals won for the eighth time in 10 games. They also bounced back from an 8-2 loss Monday when the Orioles homered three times in the 11th inning. Tuesday's game between the Beltway rivals was postponed by rain and rescheduled for Aug. 4. Bud Norris (7-6), who was activated off the disabled list Tuesday, surrendered six hits and five runs in four-plus frames to have his four-game winning streak snapped. Manny Machado continued his hot hitting by going 3-for-4 with a solo homer, but the AL East leaders lost for just the second time in nine contests.

Final Score: New York 4, Atlanta 1

Flushing, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Travis d'Arnaud hit a two-run homer during a three-run seventh, helping the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves, 4-1, in the third test of a four-game series. Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Lucas Duda had one RBI apiece for the Mets, who have won four in a row for the first time this season. New York starter Dillon Gee (4-1) was sharp in his return from the disabled list, allowing just one run on six hits over seven-plus innings. He made his first start since May 10 due to a right lat strain. B.J. Upton drove in the lone run for the Braves, who have lost four straight. Ervin Santana (7-6) gave up four runs on six hits with two walks over seven innings.

Final Score: Cincinnati 4, Chicago 1

Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Alfredo Simon was once again solid on the hill and the Cincinnati Reds picked up another win over the Chicago Cubs, 4-1, on Wednesday at Great American Ball Park. Simon (12-3) recorded his NL-leading 12th victory by limiting the Cubs to one run on four hits over 6 2/3 innings. He struck out eight and walked just two in posting his 16th quality start of the year. Brandon Phillips went 2-for-3 with an RBI for the Reds before leaving with an apparent wrist injury when he made a diving stop at second base in the eighth inning. Despite Phillips' exit, Cincinnati earned its fifth consecutive victory, including the first four meetings in this five-game NL Central series. Anthony Rizzo became the first Cubs player to hit 20 home runs before the All-Star break since Rick Monday did so in 1973, but the club still dropped its sixth straight on the heels of a promising four-game winning streak. Dallas Beeler (0-2), in his second major league start, went five innings and was touched for four runs on five hits and four walks to take the loss.

Final Score: Philadelphia 4, Milwaukee 1

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley homered to back eight strong innings from Roberto Hernandez, as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Milwaukee Brewers, 4-1, on Wednesday. Hernandez (4-8) gave up one run on three hits with three strikeouts and two walks for the Phillies, who have won the first three contests of this four-game series. Lyle Overbay drove in the lone run for the Brewers, who have lost four in a row. Kyle Lohse (9-4) allowed four runs on seven hits while striking out eight over eight innings.
