ST. LOUIS (AP) - Lance Lynn threw a five-hit shutout in his first career complete game and the St. Louis Cardinals got home runs from Allen Craig and Matt Holliday in a 6-0 victory over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.
Holliday and Matt Adams had three hits and an RBI apiece and Craig drove in two runs in the interleague matchup. The Cardinals have won 10 of 13, shaking off a 12-inning loss in the series’ opener, and ended the Yankees’ three-game road winning streak that matched their best of the year.
David Phelps (1-2) pitched in his hometown for the first time and allowed three earned runs in six innings. Two infield errors contributed to two unearned runs in the Cardinals’ breakout four-run third.
Derek Jeter got a standing ovation before each at-bat, just like in the opener. He was 0 for 3 with a walk.
Lynn (6-2) struck out two and walked three, topping his previous career best of eight innings on April 25, 2012, at Chicago against the Cubs.
DODGERS 6, REDS 3
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Andre Ethier drove in Los Angeles’ first four runs with a homer and a bases-loaded triple, and Zack Greinke tied a season high with 11 strikeouts.
Greinke (8-1) allowed three runs, eight hits and no walks in 7 2-3 innings. The 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner was lifted after giving up a two-run homer by Devin Mesoraco on his 104th pitch - ending Greinke’s streak of 22 consecutive starts in which he had allowed fewer than three earned runs. It was the longest such streak since the dead-ball era.
Kenley Jansen followed J.P. Howell out of the bullpen and pitched a perfect ninth for his 16th save.
Alfredo Simon (6-3) threw 70 pitches in 3 2-3 innings, giving up five runs, five hits and four walks.
BREWERS 7, ORIOLES 6, 10 INNINGS
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Pitcher Yovani Gallardo delivered a pinch-hit double that drove home the winning run with two outs in the 10th inning, foiling Baltimore’s strategy and sending Milwaukee to victory.
With the pitcher’s spot on deck and knowing Milwaukee was out of position players, the Orioles intentionally walked Mark Reynolds with two outs and no one on base in the 10th.
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke sent up Gallardo - a starting pitcher who was 1 for 14 this season - to bat for reliever Francisco Rodriguez (2-1).
Gallardo then drove a 2-0 pitch from T.J. McFarland (0-1) to deep center field to win it.
