  • MILWAUKEE — Adam Wainwright pitched seven strong innings and the St. Louis Cardinals sent Milwaukee to its seventh straight loss, 10-2 on Saturday as the Brewers mourned the death of shortstop Jean Segura's young son.
    Segura left the team and traveled home to the Dominican Republic, a day after his 9-month-old son died. The Brewers observed a moment of silence for Janniel Segura, and the clubhouse was closed before the game. Manager Ron Roenicke said the boy had been ill.
    Tony Cruz drove in a career-high three runs and Kolten Wong homered as the Cardinals pulled into a first-place tie with Milwaukee, which has lost 11 of 12, in the NL Central. St. Louis trailed by 61/2 games on July 1.
    Wainwright (12-4) gave up two runs and five hits, tying Cincinnati's Alfredo Simon and the Yankees' Masahiro Tanaka for the most wins in the majors. Jimmy Nelson (1-1) took the loss.
    Diamondbacks 2, Giants 0
    At San Francisco, Aaron Hill homered, doubled and scored twice, Wade Miley pitched seven shutout innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants.
    David Peralta and Gerardo Parra each added two hits for the Diamondbacks, who won their fourth in six games.
    Marco Scutaro went hitless in two at-bats with a walk in his season debut for the Giants, who were shut out for the fifth time in 13 games.
    Miley (5-6) allowed four hits and won his second straight start for the first time since early April. Brad Ziegler worked the eighth and Addison Reed pitched the ninth for his 21st save.
    Ryan Vogelsong (5-7) gave up two runs and six hits in 61/3 innings.

    At Los Angeles, A.J. Ellis hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers past the San Diego Padres.
    Adrian Gonzalez greeted Kevin Quackenbush (1-2) with a leadoff double before Matt Kemp struck out and Andre Ethier was intentionally walked. Juan Uribe then worked out a seven-pitch walk that included two checked swings that were upheld on appeal by first base umpire Jim Wolf. Padres manager Bud Black then employed a drawn-in five-man infield, but Ellis was able to lift a 1-2 pitch to right field. Kenley Jansen (1-3) pitched a scoreless ninth for the victory.
    Braves 11, Cubs 6
    At Chicago, Chris Johnson homered twice and pitcher Mike Minor hit his second career home run, leading the Atlanta Braves over the Chicago Cubs.
