ATLANTA (AP) - Freddie Freeman’s single to the center-field wall scored Jason Heyward from second base with two outs in the 10th inning on Sunday, lifting the Atlanta Braves to a 1-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds.
Cincinnati’s Johnny Cueto and Atlanta’s Julio Teheran each allowed only three hits in eight scoreless innings. Cueto struck out 11.
With two outs in the 10th, Heyward singled off J.J. Hoover (1-3) and B.J. Upton followed with a grounder off the pitcher’s glove for an infield hit.
Left-hander Manny Parra was summoned, and Freeman hit a drive that bounced on the warning track beyond center fielder Billy Hamilton’s reach.
Ian Thomas (1-0) got one out for the win.
Reds manager Bryan Price and pitcher Homer Bailey - who was on the bench - were ejected in the first inning after a replay ruling went against them.
CUBS 4, BREWERS 0
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Jason Hammel pitched three-hit ball for seven innings, Starlin Castro homered twice and the Chicago Cubs blanked the Milwaukee Brewers.
Hammel (4-1) struck out a season-high seven. Wily Peralta (3-1) had won three straight decisions.
Brewers stars Ryan Braun and Jean Segura both missed the game with injuries.
Braun out sat with a slight chest muscle strain and might be out three to five days. Segura had a partially closed right eye and bruised right cheek after being accidentally hit by Braun’s practice swing Saturday. Segura said he hoped to return during a seven-game road trip to St. Louis and Cincinnati.
PHILLIES 2, DIAMONDBACKS 0
PHOENIX (AP) - A.J. Burnett pitched eight sharp innings for his first win of the season and the Philadelphia Phillies ended a 10-game road trip with a victory over Arizona.
Burnett (1-1) gave up five hits, struck out eight and walked none in his sixth start. Jonathan Papelbon pitched the ninth for his eighth save and second in as many games.
Chase Utley hit an RBI single in the first, then doubled and scored in the sixth while raising his batting average to .360. The Phillies took two of three from Arizona and went 6-4 on their trip.
