MLB Headline News

 NEW YORK (AP) -J.J. Hardy, Ben Sheets and the Milwaukee Brewers showed they can beat one of the best teams in the National League.
Hardy hit a grand slam and Tony Gwynn Jr. played a fantastic all-around game to back a solid pitching performance by Sheets and lead Milwaukee past the sloppy New York Mets 12-3 on Saturday.
Bill Hall added three hits, Gwynn scored three times from the leadoff spot and the Brewers got two key runs on a sacrifice fly that turned into a messy double play for the Mets. Milwaukee has won 11 of 13 and 18 of 23 to improve baseball's best record to 25-11.
Some think the unheralded Brewers (16-5 at home) have fattened up on a soft schedule in the weak NL Central. But after a 5-4 loss in the series opener that snapped a six-game winning streak, Milwaukee overwhelmed the defending NL East champs with 16 hits and aggressive baserunning.
Sheets (3-2) yielded three runs and four hits in six innings.
Pinch-hitter David Newhan homered for the Mets (22-13), who had won three straight and seven of nine. New York left fielder Moises Alou came out in the seventh with a pulled left quadriceps. He is day to day.
Mike Pelfrey (0-5) allowed four runs and eight hits in five innings.
Phillies 11, Cubs 7
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Greg Dobbs was 4-for-4, including a go-ahead two-run triple in the seventh inning for the Phillies.
Carlos Ruiz and Chase Utley homered, Abraham Nunez drove in three runs and right fielder Shane Victorino threw two runners out at the plate, helping Philadelphia (17-19) win its third straight game and move closer to .500.
After blowing a lead for the 13th time this season by allowing six runs in the top of the seventh, the Phillies answered with six runs against relievers Will Ohman and Bob Howry (0-3) in the bottom half.
Antonio Alfonseca (2-1) got the final two outs in the seventh to get the win.
Derrek Lee went 4-for-5 and scored two runs for the Cubs.
