MLB: Brewer bats knock Wood in ninth inning

Associated Press
CHICAGO ó Ryan Braun hit a two-run double off Kerry Wood during Milwaukeeís three-run ninth inning and the Brewers rallied to beat the Chicago Cubs 4-3 on Thursday.
Wood blew his third save in seven chances and wasted a fine performance by Carlos Zambrano, who pitched 61/3 innings and helped himself with his 13th career homer ó tying the team record held by Ferguson Jenkins.
Phillies 3, Padres 2
PHILADELPHIA ó Ryan Howard hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the eighth inning to lift Philadelphia to the win.
Nationals 3, Pirates 2
WASHINGTON ó Austin Kearns broke a tie with a two-out RBI single in the eighth inning, and the Nationals ran their winning streak to a season-high four games.
Dodgers 5, Marlins 3
MIAMI ó Matt Kemp drove in the tiebreaking run with a ninth-inning single and Los Angeles completed its second consecutive series sweep.
Smoltz update
ATLANTA ó Facing the prospect of trying to make it through the season with an aching shoulder, John Smoltz is pondering another dramatic career change.
The 40-year-old right-hander, who already went from starter to closer to starter again, is looking to go back to the bullpen once he comes off the 15-day disabled list.
Smoltz had shoulder problems last season and heís already been on the DL twice this season, the second time after a pain-shortened start at New York last weekend.
An examination by prominent doctor James Andrews of Birmingham, Ala., found a severely inflamed biceps tendon and inflammation of the rotator cuff in the right shoulder.
Tulowitzki out for extended period
DENVER ó Colorado Rockies star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki tore a tendon in his left quadriceps and could be out until the All-Star break, if not longer.
iBest case scenario is six weeks. The realistic one is a few months,î his agent Paul Cohen said on Thursday.
Cohen said team doctors will have a better feel for a timeline next week after imassive swelling and bleedingî subside.
