 MILWAUKEE (AP) - Backup catcher Chris Stewart's single keyed a three-run burst in the ninth inning against Francisco Rodriguez and sent the Pittsburgh Pirates past Milwaukee 4-1 Wednesday night, ending the Brewers' three-game winning streak.
Rodriguez (1-1) had given up only one run in 21 innings in his first 21 games. But the Pirates tagged the Milwaukee closer for four consecutive hits to beat the Brewers for only the second time in nine games.
Milwaukee managed only six hits and went 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position minus Carlos Gomez. The star center fielder dropped his appeal Wednesday and began a three-game suspension for his part in a bench-clearing fracas at Pittsburgh on Easter Sunday.
Stewart, making only his eighth start of the season, singled for a 2-1 lead. Starling Marte, playing for the first time since exiting Saturday with tightness in his back, then hit a two-run double.
Tony Watson (4-0) pitched a scoreless eighth. Mark Melancon worked the ninth for his fifth save in six chances.
GIANTS 10, BRAVES 4
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Hunter Pence, Michael Morse and Brandon Crawford homered to power the San Francisco Giants past Atlanta.
Gregor Blanco stole three bases and scored three runs as the Giants continued to dominate the matchup of NL division leaders. San Francisco finished 5-1 against Atlanta this season.
Madison Bumgarner (5-3) allowed four runs and five hits in five innings.
Julio Teheran (2-3) lasted only 3 1-3 innings. He gave up five runs and seven hits in his second loss to the Giants this season.
Pence finished with four hits and three RBIs, Crawford collected three hits and three RBIs and Morse connected for his team-leading ninth home run.
NATIONALS 5, DIAMONDBACKS 1
PHOENIX (AP) - Ian Desmond and Tyler Moore each lined two-run singles in the ninth inning to break open a close game, helping the Washington Nationals beat Arizona.
Nationals starter Doug Fister was locked into a pitcher's duel with Brandon McCarthy before Washington pulled away.
Jayson Werth homered and Tyler Clippard (4-3) tossed one scoreless inning for Washington. Brad Ziegler (0-1) had pitched 18 1-3 straight scoreless innings.
ANGELS 3, PHILLIES 0
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Garrett Richards allowed five hits over seven innings and the Angels swept the two-game series.
Mike Trout, who grew up in nearby Millville, New Jersey, went 1 for 4 with a triple, walk and stolen base.
Richards (4-0) struck out eight, had no walks and lowered his ERA to 2.42. Ernesto Frieri pitched a perfect eighth and Joe Smith finished off the five-hitter for his fifth save in seven tries.
A.J. Burnett (2-3) labored through five innings, allowing three runs and seven hits. He struck out six and walked five.
The Angels have won five of six to move a season-high three games above .500. Philadelphia has lost three straight and seven of nine to fall a season-worst four games under .500.
YANKEES 4, METS 0
NEW YORK (AP) - Masahiro Tanaka pitched a four-hitter for his first major league shutout and the Yankees got home runs from Yangervis Solarte and Mark Teixeira at Citi Field.
Brian Roberts tripled twice and the Yankees finally beat their crosstown rivals after dropping six straight. The Mets took all four Subway Series games last year and won two slugfests in the Bronx this week.
Tanaka (6-0) overwhelmed the Mets with his vast assortment of pitches while spoiling Rafael Montero's major league debut. Montero (0-1) threw six competitive innings but was no match for the $155 million rookie from Japan.
Tanaka struck out eight and walked none in his first complete game in the majors. He also singled, giving him one more than Mets pitchers have in 64 at-bats this season.
