  • MILWAUKEE — Ryan Zimmerman's two-run home run in the 16th inning lifted the Washington Nationals to a 4-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.
    Zimmerman hit a 2-0 pitch off Mike Fiers (0-1) over the wall in left field to score Adam LaRoche for the Nationals fourth consecutive win.
    Tyler Clippard (5-2) pitched a scoreless 15th for the win. Rafael Soriano pitched the 16th for his 18th save.
    With one out in the 16th, LaRoche hit a sharp single that bounced off the wall in right field. Zimmerman then hit his third home run of the year to give the Nationals the lead in a game that took 5 hours, 22 minutes.
    The Brewers threatened in the 13th, 14th and 15th innings, but couldn't score.
    Padres 7, Giants 2
    At San Francisco, Alexi Amarista drove in three runs on three hits and San Diego handed stumbling San Francisco its 12th loss in 15 games.
    Will Venable drove in two runs and Jesse Hahn (3-1) earned his third straight victory for the Padres, who won their fifth in the last seven games.
    Tim Hudson (7-4) lost for the first time at home this season, allowing six runs — four earned — on nine hits over 52/3 innings. He walked two and struck out four.
    Cubs 7, Reds 3
    At Chicago, Jake Arrieta retired his first 18 batters and struck out nine in seven impressive innings for Chicago.
    Arrieta (4-1) was working on a perfect game before rookie Billy Hamilton started the seventh with a single up the middle. The right-hander allowed two runs and three hits while improving to 3-0 with a 1.14 ERA in five June starts.
    Phillies 7, Marlins 4
    At Philadelphia, Marlon Byrd hit a two-run homer, David Buchanan threw five effective innings and Philadelphia beat Miami.
    Buchanan (4-3) allowed two runs and six hits to help the Phillies snap a three-game losing streak. The rookie right-hander struck out Marcell Ozuna on a 3-2 changeup with two runners on and two outs in the fifth, preserving a 4-2 lead.

    American League
    Mariners 8, Red Sox 2
    At Seattle, Kyle Seager had an RBI double in the first inning and hit a three-run homer in the fifth off Boston starter Jake Peavy as Seattle won its fifth straight.
    The Mariners matched their longest winning streak of the season thanks to another offensive outburst. One night after putting up 12 runs on the Red Sox, Seattle hit two homers and handed Boston its fifth loss in six games.
    Seager's homer was his 11th of the season, 10 of those coming at Safeco Field. Mike Zunino followed with a solo shot as part of Seattle's four-run fifth inning. It was Zunino's 10th home run.
    Angels 8, Twins 6
    At Anaheim, Calif., Mike Trout hit a tiebreaking two-run homer after Los Angeles and Minnesota exchanged five-run innings, and the Angels went on to get their fourth straight victory.
    C.J. Wilson (8-6) barely navigated through five innings and left with the lead after allowing six runs and nine hits, including back-to-back home runs for the second time in his last three starts. The left-hander, who came in 5-0 with a 1.58 ERA in his previous six outings at Angel Stadium, blew a 5-0 lead in the second before Trout hit his 17th homer in the bottom half.
    Tigers 8, Rangers 2
    At Arlington, Texas, Ian Kinsler homered in the first at-bat of his return to Texas as an opponent and J.D. Martinez had a tiebreaking two-run shot as the Detroit Tigers beat the Rangers 8-2 on Tuesday night.
    The AL Central-leading Tigers won their fifth consecutive game.
    Blue Jays 7, Yankees 6
    At Toronto, Jose Reyes atoned for a pair of misplays by hitting a leadoff double in the ninth inning and scoring when Yankees third baseman Yangervis Solarte threw away a bunt, lifting Toronto past New York.
    The Yankees trailed 6-0 before tying it, then lost their fourth in a row.
    White Sox 4, Orioles 2
    At Baltimore, Jose Quintana allowed one run in seven innings, Gordon Beckham homered and Chicago snapped a five-game losing streak.

    Mets 10, Athletics 1
    At New York, slumping outfielder Chris Young homered twice, Travis d'Arnaud hit a three-run shot in his return from a demotion and the towel-waving New York Mets roughed up Scott Kazmir and Oakland.
    Bartolo Colon (8-5) shut down the team that didn't want him back this year despite an 18-win season, pitching four-hit ball for eight innings against the AL West leaders.
    Curtis Granderson homered, he and David Wright had RBI groundouts, and Daniel Murphy added a run-scoring single for the Mets, who scored at least 10 runs in consecutive games for the first time since June 28-29, 2011, in Detroit.
    Young homered off Kazmir (9-3) in the second, four pitches after Granderson hit a two-run drive for the Mets first back-to back homers since Sept. 14.
    Braves 3, Astros 2
    At Houston, brothers B.J. and Justin Upton tied the major league record for brothers homering in the same game as teammates, accomplishing the feat for the fourth time, to lead Atlanta past Houston.
    B.J. Upton's homer was a solo shot off Scott Feldman (3-5) in the third inning that put Atlanta up 2-1. Younger brother Justin connected off Feldman the next inning to push the lead to 3-1.
    Pirates 6, Rays 5
    Andrew McCutchen drove in two runs, Jeff Locke pitched into the eighth inning, and Pittsburgh beat Tampa Bay.
    The Pirates have the NL's best record (27-18) since May 6, and moved above .500 (39-38) for the first time since starting the season 7-6.
