 MILWAUKEE (AP) -Brewers catcher Johnny Estrada and manager Ned Yost got into a heated dispute in a dugout tunnel late in Thursday's 12-4 loss to the New York Mets, Milwaukee's 10th defeat in 14 games.
Damion Easley hit the first inside-the-park homer at Miller Park in five years, breaking a sixth-inning tie. The Mets scored three more times in the seventh, helped by shortstop J.J. Hardy's error and an RBI double from reliever Jorge Sosa.
When the half-inning ended, Estrada and Yost nearly tangled in the tunnel leading from the dugout to the clubhouse. Infielder Tony Graffanino stepped between them while pitcher Ben Sheets and pitching coach Mike Maddux stood in front of Estrada.
Brian Lawrence (1-0) gave up three runs and eight hits in five innings for the victory - his first major league win since Sept. 29, 2005.
Chris Capuano (5-8) gave up 10 hits and five runs in six innings and lost his eighth straight decision. He started the season 5-0, but hasn't recorded a victory since May 5.
Phillies 10, Cubs 6
CHICAGO (AP) - Pat Burrell homered and Jayson Werth drove in four runs for the Phillies, who lost starter Kyle Lohse to a bruised forearm.
Lohse, acquired in a trade Monday with Cincinnati, lasted only one inning in his Phillies debut. He was hit by a line drive off the bat off Jacque Jones and had to leave the game.
Philadelphia had three-run rallies in the second and third and drove out Cubs starter Sean Marshall (5-5) after 2 2-3 innings. The Phillies added three more in the ninth.
J.D. Durbin (4-2), who pitched three innings after replacing Lohse, got the win despite giving up three runs and five hits.
Padres 11, Diamondbacks 0
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Jake Peavy struck out 10 to pass 1,000 for his career, and Morgan Ensberg hit two two-run homers in his first start with the Padres.
Khalil Greene added a three-run homer and Adrian Gonzalez had a solo shot. Gonzalez, aboard for both of Ensberg's homers, scored three runs.
Another newcomer, Rob Mackowiak, also made his first San Diego start, filling in for injured right fielder Brian Giles. Mackowiak went 2-for-5, stole a base and scored two runs.
Peavy (11-5) reached double digits in strikeouts for the fifth time this season and the 20th time in his career. He had gone 13 straight starts without striking out at least 10.
Ensberg hit his first homer to left off Yusmeiro Petit (2-3) in the second. He homered into the second deck in left off reliever Dustin Nippert with two outs in the seventh.
Pirates 5, Cardinals 4, 11 innings
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pinch-hitter Jose Castillo singled home the winning run with two outs in the 11th inning, and the Pirates won their second in a row after a streak in which they lost 15 of 16 after the All-Star break.
An error by shortstop David Eckstein helped Pittsburgh put runners on first and second with no outs in the 11th against Brad Thompson (6-5). Ronny Paulino then bunted into a double play, leaving Ryan Doumit at second base.
Castillo batted for Salomon Torres (1-3) and singled. Adam Kennedy, playing right field for the first time in his career after Scott Spiezio had been ejected, made a soft and off-line throw that let Doumit score easily.
Spiezio was tossed by plate umpire Bob Davidson for arguing a called third strike that ended the top of the 10th.
