National League Game Capsules

(Monday, June 29)

Final Score: Milwaukee 7, Philadelphia 4

Philadelphia, PA ( - Jonathan Lucroy snapped out of his slump with four hits on Monday, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 7-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies in the opener of a four-game series. Lucroy entered the game mired in a 3-for-23 slump, but a series with Philadelphia, the worst team in the majors and one he has hit well over his career, was just what he needed. Lucroy, Adam Lind and Aramis Ramirez all drove in two runs in the win, and Lucroy scored twice. Milwaukee's offense made a winner out of Jimmy Nelson (5-8), who allowed four runs on six hits over five innings of work.

Final Score: Arizona 10, Los Angeles 6

Phoenix, AZ ( - Paul Goldschmidt drove in two runs to cap a four-run rally in the bottom of the eighth inning as the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 10-6 on Monday. Jake Lamb led off the decisive frame with a walk and Welington Castillo followed with a double to the wall in center, scoring the go-ahead run without a throw. Castillo moved to third on Chris Owings' bunt, and he scored when Pedro Baez (1-1) fielded the ball and threw wide of first base. Facing J.P. Howell with the bases loaded, Goldschmidt delivered a pair of insurance runs with a single that fell in front of Andre Ethier in left field. Goldschmidt extended his hitting streak to 10 games earlier in the contest. The Diamondbacks trailed 4-0 early on after LA's starting pitcher Mike Bolsinger limited them to three hits over four innings. But Bolsinger departed after that with flu-like symptoms, and Arizona roughed up the Dodgers bullpen, scoring two runs apiece in three straight innings from the fifth to seventh and four in the eighth. The win snapped a seven-game losing skid against Los Angeles.

Final Score: Cincinnati 11, Minnesota 7

Cincinnati, OH ( - Billy Hamilton was the catalyst atop Cincinnati's lineup, and the Reds' bullpen held off the Minnesota Twins in taking the opener of a three-game series 11-7 on Monday. Hamilton went 2- for-4 with two walks, three runs scored and four steals -- upping his total to 40 in the team's 75th game. The speedster's efforts helped the Reds jump out to a 9-1 lead, but the Twins cut into the deficit when they pushed across six runs -- three on a Brian Dozier homer -- against Mike Leake in the fourth inning. Leake did not return in the fifth, and Nate Adcock (1-1) threw two scoreless innings of relief to earn a bounce-back win after the club was swept by the Mets over the weekend. Tucker Barnhart posted a career-high four hits with two RBI, and Eugenio Suarez went 3-for-5 with three RBI for the Reds, who went an impressive 8-for-19 with runners in scoring position. Mike Pelfrey (5-5) did not make it out of the third inning in surrendering eight runs for the second time in four outings.

Final Score: Oakland 7, Colorado 1

Oakland, CA ( - Josh Reddick and Ike Davis smacked two-run homers as part of a four-run first inning and the Oakland Athletics defeated the Colorado Rockies 7-1 in the opener of a three-game set. Billy Butler cracked a solo shot for the A's, who were swept by the Kansas City Royals over the weekend. Kendall Graveman (5-4) scattered five hits and walked three over seven scoreless innings to notch the win. David Hale (2-3) allowed five runs on nine hits over seven frames for Colorado. Charlie Blackmon had a solo homer in defeat.
