 CINCINNATI (AP) -Ken Griffey Jr. tied Frank Robinson for sixth place on the career home run list and Kyle Lohse pitched a four-hitter as Cincinnati beat Arizona 8-1 on Friday night.
Griffey capped the Reds' three-run fifth inning with his 586th homer - 23rd of the season - a two-run shot off Micah Owings.
Adam Dunn and Brandon Phillips also homered for the Reds, who won consecutive games for the first time since beating Cleveland on June 10 and the Angels on June 12.
Lohse (5-10) had five strikeouts and two walks in his sixth career complete game and second this season.
Arizona's only hit before the ninth was Orlando Hudson's double to lead off the fourth. Lohse allowed a run in the ninth on three singles and a double play grounder.
Owings (5-4) allowed six runs and six hits in 4 2-3 innings.
Pirates 8, Cubs 4
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Xavier Nady homered and drove in three runs to support Paul Maholm's pitching and hitting, as Pittsburgh won its fourth straight.
The Cubs had won 11 of 13 and were 21-10 since June 3, the best record in the majors over that span, until being limited to five hits over seven-plus innings by Maholm (5-11). Maholm is 4-0 in five career starts against the Pirates.
Maholm gave up four runs, two scoring after he left the game following singles by Alfonso Soriano and Mike Fontenot to start the eighth. Shawn Chacon walked Derrek Lee to load the bases before giving up sacrifice flies to Aramis Ramirez and Mark DeRosa to cut the lead to 7-4. Freddy Sanchez, who had homered, doubled in a run in the eighth for the Pirates.
Maholm allowed five hits in seven innings with three walks and five strikeouts. Damaso Marte pitched a scoreless ninth in his first save opportunity of the season.
Jason Marquis (6-5) gave up six runs and eight hits in 4 2-3 innings.
Brewers 6, Nationals 2
WASHINGTON (AP) - Ryan Braun homered twice, Dave Bush took a shutout into the seventh inning and Milwaukee snapped a three-game losing streak.
Braun hit a solo shot and Kevin Mench a three-run drive in a four-run first inning against Mike Bacsik (2-6). Milwaukee has homered in 15 consecutive games, its longest streak since a 19-game run in 1996.
Bush (7-7) improved to 4-1 in his last five starts. He went seven innings, allowing one run and seven hits. He matched a season high with seven strikeouts.
Ronnie Belliard homered and had four hits for the Nationals, who have dropped nine of 11.
Corey Hart of the Brewers tripled with two outs in the second, extending his hitting streak to 22 games.
