DODGERS 8, ARIZONA 7
PHOENIX (AP) - Ivan De Jesus hit a two-run double with two outs in the ninth to give the Dodgers the lead and Dee Gordon went airborne to turn a game-ending double play as the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied past the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-7 on Tuesday night.
The Diamondbacks, who squandered a five-run lead going into the seventh, took a 7-6 lead in the bottom of the eighth on Lyle Overbay's homer off Josh Lindblom (2-0).
J.J. Putz (0-3) couldn't close it for Arizona, allowing De Jesus to drive a double to center and make it 8-7.
With runners on first and third in the bottom of the ninth, Kenley Jansen got Jason Kubel to ground to second and Gordon leaped over a late sliding Justin Upton to make a one-hop throw and complete the double play.
GIANTS 6 - BREWERS 4
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Buster Posey homered off the Miller Park scoreboard and had three RBIs as the San Francisco Giants beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-4 on Tuesday night.
The Giants won for the eighth time in 11 games despite being outhit 11-5.
The Brewers went 2-for-13 with runners in scoring position off San Francisco starter Matt Cain (4-2) and have lost six of seven.
Cain pitched out of trouble, allowing four runs on 11 hits without walking a batter and striking out eight in seven innings. Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth for his 11th save.
Milwaukee's Shaun Marcum (2-3) gave up six runs on five hits and two walks with five strikeouts in six innings. It was the first time this season the right-hander gave up more than three earned runs.
ANGELS 4 - ATHLETICS 0
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - C.J. Wilson and Ernesto Frieri combined on a one-hitter and the Los Angeles Angels broke out of their offensive slump in a 4-0 win over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night.
Albert Pujols homered for the third time in seven days while Mark Trumbo and Howie Kendrick both had RBI singles for the Angels, who had scored only five runs in their previous three games combined.
A day after losing its third consecutive one-run game, Los Angeles took a four-run lead after three innings and coasted the rest of the way to give Wilson (5-4) his first win in nearly three weeks.
Cliff Pennington had the only hit - a one-out single in the fifth - for Oakland, which had won five of the previous seven meetings between the teams this season.
Pujols, who signed a $240 million, 10-year deal with the Angels in the offseason, drove in the Angels' first run with a sacrifice fly in the first inning then hit his fourth homer of the season with one out in the third, a towering solo shot to left off A's starter Graham Godfrey. It was the 449th homer for Pujols, tying him with Vladimir Guerrero and Jeff Bagwell for 35th on the all-time list.
More importantly for the Angels, Pujols has 15 RBIs in his last 16 games after having only two through his first 18 games with Los Angeles.
Oakland was blanked for the seventh time this year, second-most in the majors behind the Angels (eight).
CARDINALS 4 - PADRES 0
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Adam Wainwright threw a four-hitter and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the San Diego Padres 4-0 on Tuesday night.
It was his first shutout victory since Aug. 6, 2010, and third in his career. Wainwright (3-5), who missed the 2011 season with elbow ligament replacement surgery, struck out nine and walked one while throwing 111 pitches. He retired the first eight batters and allowed just one runner to reach third base.
Carlos Beltran had two hits and two RBIs and Matt Holliday added two hits and an RBI for the Cardinals.
Edinson Volquez (2-4) gave up five hits and three runs in six innings. The former Cincinnati Red remains winless in St. Louis. He is 0-3 in four career starts at Busch Stadium with a 6.50 ERA.
St. Louis took a 1-0 lead in the first inning. Matt Carpenter hit a double to left field and appeared to hurt himself as he left the batter's box. Daniel Descalso came in to run for Carpenter and scored on Beltran's two-out single. Descalso stayed in the game at third base for Carpenter, who experienced "right side tightness," according to a club spokesman.
