Associated Press
The National League roundup ….
MILWAUKEE ó Zack Greinke pitched effectively into the eighth to remain perfect at home, Corey Hart homered for the second time in as many days and the Milwaukee Brewers swept the Chicago Cubs with a 3-2 win on Sunday.
Greinke (13-5) improved to 10-0 at Miller Park and didnít allow a hit until Marlon Byrdís fifth-inning bloop. In the bottom of the inning, Greinke singled, stole a base for the first time in his career and scored on Hartís blast.
Greinke struck out seven, scattering four hits and two walks.
Rockies 7, Dodgers 6
LOS ANGELES ó Kevin Kouzmanoff drove in his first four runs since joining Colorado this week, and the Rockies needed five relievers to hold off the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Kouzmanoff blooped a three-run double in the first inning as Colorado took a 5-0 lead. He later singled home a run, and the six-year veteran tied a career high with four RBIs.
Diamondbacks 6, Padres 1
PHOENIX ó Ian Kennedy pitched seven effective innings to become the National Leagueís first 17-game winner, Collin Cowgill hit his first career homer during a four-hit game and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres for their sixth straight victory.
Astros 4, Giants 3, 11 innings
SAN FRANCISCO ó Matt Downs delivered a go-ahead single with one out in the 11th inning and the Houston Astros beat the stumbling San Francisco Giants to salvage a four-game split.
Reds 5, Nationals 4
CINCINNATI ó Joey Votto led off the 14th inning with his second home run of the game, lifting the Cincinnati Reds over the Washington Nationals.
Cardinals 7, Pirates 4
