 MILWAUKEE (AP) -Geoff Jenkins homered and drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Washington Nationals 3-1 Wednesday for their sixth straight win.
Milwaukee finished a 10-game homestand 9-1 and have won 10 of the last 11. The Nationals' longest losing streak since moving to Washington now stands at eight.
J.J. Hardy's 19-game hitting streak ended after his final at-bat in the eighth, when he waved wildly at a third strike, but that was the beginning of the end for the Nationals.
Lefty-hitting Prince Fielder singled off left-hander Micah Bowie (0-2), who was lifted for right-hander Jesus Colome. Colome allowed back-to-back singles to Bill Hall and Jenkins, which scored Fielder after catcher Brian Schneider couldn't come up with a throw to the plate.
Hall scored on Colome's wild pitch with two outs to make it 3-1.
Derrick Turnbow (1-0) pitched a perfect eighth and Francisco Cordero, who appeared in his sixth game in as many days, recorded his 15th save.
Felipe Lopez led off the sixth with his second homer in as many days for Washington.
Cardinals 9, Rockies 2
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Adam Wainwright worked six innings to lead the Cardinals to the win.
St. Louis scored in multiple innings for the first time in seven games.
Aaron Miles had three hits and an RBI and Scott Spiezio had two hits and two RBIs for the Cardinals, who scored two runs in the second, two in the fifth, four in the sixth and one in the seventh. St. Louis completed a 4-2 homestand, getting by before the finale with a pair of three-run innings and a four-spot in the other three wins.
Todd Helton and Brad Hawpe each had an RBI double for the Rockies, who have lost three of four. Jason Hirsh (2-3) walked six and struck out five in four-plus innings, allowing three runs.
Wainwright (3-2) gave up two runs, one earned, and nine hits.
