PHILADELPHIA (AP) — John Lannan tossed four-hit ball over eight innings against his former team, Ben Revere had three hits and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 Monday night.
Lannan (2-3) had four strikeouts in his longest outing in four years. The lefty registered 12 groundouts to beat the team he played for his first six seasons in the majors.
Jonathan Papelbon allowed two runs in a shaky ninth to earn his 19th save in 23 tries.
Dan Haren (4-10) came off the disabled list and took the loss after missing two weeks because of right shoulder inflammation. Haren allowed two runs and seven hits in five innings, striking out a season-high seven.
Revere and Jimmy Rollins, the 1-2 hitters in Philadelphia's lineup were 5 for 9 with three runs and one RBI.
METS 4, GIANTS 3, 16 INNINGS
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Eric Young scored on shortstop Brandon Crawford's fielding error with two outs in the 16th inning, and New York outlasted San Francisco in a game that ended early Tuesday morning.
Young singled with one out and stole second. After he advanced to third on Daniel Murphy's groundout, lefty Javier Lopez entered and intentionally walked David Wright.
Crawford couldn't handle pinch-hitter Anthony Recker's grounder, allowing Young to score and handing New York its first win in the four games in which the Mets played at least 15 innings this season.
Josh Edgin (1-1) pitched two innings for the win, while George Kontos (2-2) took the loss. Bobby Parnell got his 16th save.
This one lasted 5 hours, 26 minutes — the longest game in time and innings the Giants had played this season.
DODGERS 6, DIAMONDBACKS 1
PHOENIX (AP) — Zack Greinke gave up two hits in seven scoreless innings in his first game against Arizona since last month's bench-clearing brawl, and Los Angeles snapped the Diamondbacks' five-game winning streak.
Greinke (7-2) struck out seven and walked two in his fourth straight win. He also had a career-high three hits.
Hanley Ramirez singled three times to extend his career-best hitting streak to 19 games and was one of five Dodgers with an RBI.
Los Angeles, winner of 13 of 16, tied its season high with 17 hits — 16 of them singles.
Randall Delgado (1-3) allowed three runs and 11 hits in six innings.
Andre Ethier also had three hits as Los Angeles climbed within 3½ games of the first-place Diamondbacks in the NL West.
BREWERS 4, REDS 3
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Center fielder Carlos Gomez robbed Joey Votto of a potential go-ahead homer with a spectacular catch in the ninth inning, saving Milwaukee's victory over Cincinnati.
Jonathan Lucroy homered for the third consecutive game for the last-place Brewers. Jean Segura had three hits off Homer Bailey (5-7) in the right-hander's first start since his second no-hitter in 10 months.
Gomez made the biggest play of the game when he made a perfectly timed jump to grab Votto's drive for the final out, sending a charge through the crowd on an otherwise sleepy night at Miller Park.
Kyle Lohse (5-6) pitched into the seventh for his fourth consecutive win. Francisco Rodriguez finished for his ninth save and No. 303 of his career, tying Doug Jones for 22nd on the major league list.
Chris Heisey homered for Cincinnati, which has lost three of four.
BRAVES 7, MARLINS 1, 14 INNINGS
MIAMI (AP) — Justin Upton broke a tie by driving in two runs when he doubled in a six-run 14th inning for Atlanta's first hit since the sixth against Miami.
Five Miami relievers combined to retire 24 consecutive batters before Reed Johnson walked to start the 14th against Chris Hatcher (0-1). Jason Heyward walked with one out, and Upton's double scored both runners.
Gerald Laird hit a two-out, two-run single. Chris Johnson added an RBI single with the bases loaded, and another run scored when the ball skipped past left fielder Justin Ruggiano for an error.
Seven relievers for the two teams combined to retire 30 straight batters from the eighth to the 13th. David Carpenter (2-0) pitched two innings and escaped a jam in the 13th.
ROCKIES 4, PADRES 2
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Tyler Chatwood took a shutout into the seventh inning and Colorado handed skidding San Diego its 10th consecutive defeat.
Wilin Rosario hit a two-run double to help the Rockies end a three-game slide with their second victory in eight games. They have won nine of 11 against San Diego this season.
Chatwood (5-2) allowed two runs and five hits in a season-high 6 2-3 innings. Rafael Betancourt worked the ninth for his 12th save in 13 opportunities, retiring pinch-hitter Mark Kotsay with two on to end it.
Edinson Volquez (6-7) gave up four runs and eight hits in 5 1-3 innings. The Padres have lost 16 of 20 since winning a season-high seven straight to move two games over .500 on June 17.
ATHLETICS 2, PIRATES 1
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Bartolo Colon allowed one run over seven innings and the Athletics won for the ninth time in their past 12 games, beating the Pirates.
The 40-year-old Colon (12-3) shook off a tough-luck 3-1 defeat in his previous start to win for the ninth time in his last 10 outings. He outdueled Jeff Locke, who had a personal eight-game winning streak snapped. Locke (8-2) lost for the first time since his first start of the season April 10.
Colon moved into a tie for second in the majors in victories, and has the second-most wins by a 40-year-old in A's history. He allowed seven hits and one walk with five strikeouts.
Coco Crisp made a diving catch in left-center to preserve Oakland's lead in the seventh off a hard-hit sinking liner from Andrew McCutchen with two men on and two outs.
