HOUSTON (AP) -Chad Billingsley threw a five-hitter for his first complete game, and Jeff Kent had four hits and two RBIs as Los Angeles beat Houston 10-2 on Monday night.
Billingsley took a shutout into the ninth inning and had two outs when Luke Scott hit a two-run homer.
Luis Gonzalez and James Loney both had three RBIs for the Dodgers, who came in having lost three of four.
Billingsley (7-0) walked three and struck out six. He is 3-0 in seven starts since joining the rotation June 21.
Chris Sampson (7-7) went five innings and allowed four runs and eight hits. The Astros bullpen, which had allowed one run in 21 2-3 innings over the last eight games, got hit hard. Dave Borkowski gave up three runs and five hits in two innings, and Brian Moehler gave up four hits in the ninth, including a three-run homer by Loney.
Reds 2, Brewers 1, 12 innings
CINCINNATI (AP) - Aaron Harang pitched 10 innings after returning from his grandfather's funeral, and pinch-hitter Javier Valentin's single in the 12th gave Cincinnati the victory.
Valentin's single with the bases loaded was off Grant Balfour (0-2), who walked Jeff Conine and Pedro Lopez to open the inning, then threw to third base too late on David Ross' bunt to get an out.
Reds closer David Weathers pitched out of a bases loaded, no-out threat in the 11th, inducing Johnny Estrada to ground into a home-to-first double play. Rookie Jared Burton (1-1) got the final two outs in the 12th for his first major league win.
Harang gave up Ryan Braun's solo homer in the fourth, then retired 17 batters before Braun singled with two outs in the ninth. He gave up seven hits.
