Question of the Day
CINCINNATI (AP) - Chase Headley homered in the ninth inning off Aroldis Chapman, the first hit the hard-throwing lefty allowed since his return from being hit in the head by a line drive, and the San Diego Padres beat the Cincinnati Reds 2-1 on Tuesday night.
The Padres got their season-high fourth straight win despite managing only three hits. Seth Smith had the only two hits that Mike Leake allowed in the first eight innings.
Headley connected on a 99 mph fastball from Chapman (0-1), who was making his second appearance since undergoing surgery to repair damage after being struck in the left eye and nose during a spring training game.
Joaquin Benoit (1-0) allowed a walk in the eighth. Huston Street got the last three outs for his 12th save in as many chances. Street hasn’t allowed a run in his last 10 innings.
DIAMONDBACKS 3, NATIONALS 1
Paul Goldschmidt doubled twice and drove in two runs.
Arroyo (4-2), who pitched two complete games for Cincinnati last season, struck out seven and walked one. Over his last three starts, he has allowed one earned run in 23 1-3 innings.
He also became the second pitcher to get two hits off Strasburg. The other was Tim Hudson.
Strasburg (3-3) went seven innings, allowing three runs on eight hits, striking out six with no walks.
BREWERS 5, PIRATES 2
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Jonathan Lucroy hit a bases-loaded, two-run single, and the battered Milwaukee Brewers withstood the early exits of star outfielders Carlos Gomez and Ryan Braun to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Gomez scored the second run on Lucroy’s single in the third after getting hit by a changeup from Gerrit Cole (3-3). It was their first meeting since the teams brawled last month in Pittsburgh after Cole and Gomez exchanged words.
No confrontations Tuesday, though Gomez did leave the game with lower back tightness. Manager Ron Roenicke said Gomez woke up Monday with a tight back and tried to play through it.
Braun was activated from the disabled list earlier Tuesday. His departure after the sixth was planned as he gets acclimated in his return from an oblique injury.
