WASHINGTON (AP) - Hit by a pitch two innings after homering, Bryce Harper jawed and pointed at Atlanta's Julio Teheran, and the dugouts and bullpens emptied, but the only haymakers thrown during the NL East-leading Braves' 2-1 victory over the Nationals on Tuesday night came from the teams' Twitter feeds.
Evan Gattis' two-run single in the fifth inning and the six innings thrown by Teheran (9-5) while allowing one run combined to produce Atlanta's season-high 12th consecutive win, padding their NL East lead to 14 1/2 games over Washington.
Gattis' big hit came off Gio Gonzalez (7-5), who pitched one night after Major League Baseball announced its Biogenesis investigation cleared the left-hander.
CARDINALS 5, DODGERS 1
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Carlos Beltran and Matt Adams homered in the eighth inning, and the St. Louis Cardinals snapped the Los Angeles Dodgers' 15-game road winning streak with a 5-1 victory on Tuesday night.
Joe Kelly pitched into the sixth inning, outperforming Clayton Kershaw and helping St. Louis to its fourth victory in the last six games. Tony Cruz added an RBI single.
Adrian Gonzalez hit a one-out RBI single off Kelly (3-3) in the sixth, but that was it for Los Angeles against the right-hander. He left with runners on first and second and the Cardinals nursing a 2-1 lead.
Kershaw (10-7) allowed two runs and six hits in six innings for Los Angeles, which dropped to 15-3 since the All-Star break. The left-hander is 5-2 with a sparkling 1.62 ERA over his last eight starts.
PIRATES 4, MARLINS 3
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Josh Harrison homered leading off the bottom of the ninth, lifting the Pirates to a win over the Marlins.
Harrison sent a fastball from Miami's Mike Dunn (2-3) into the first row of seats in left-center field for his first career walk-off homer.
Dunn had worked out of a bases loaded, no-out jam in the eighth.
Bryan Morris (5-4) pitched a perfect top of the ninth for the victory. The Pirates have won three straight and are a season-high 24 games over .500 (68-44).
Neil Walker had three hits for the Pirates. Andrew McCutchen had two hits, including a two-run double, for Pittsburgh.
PHILLIES 9, CUBS 8
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Darin Ruf and Chase Utley sparked a three-run fifth inning to lift the Phillies to a 9-8 win over the Cubs.
Utley, who had three hits, drove in the tying run on a triple to deep center field. He soon scored on Domonic Brown's groundout to give the Phillies the lead. Ruf added one more on a solo home run, his fourth of the season.
Philadelphia tagged Edwin Jackson (7-12) for seven runs and 10 hits in six innings.
Trailing 9-5 in the ninth, the Cubs scored three runs off Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon before pinch-hitter Thomas Neal flew out with men on the corners to end it.
Kyle Kendrick (10-8) allowed five runs and six hits in six innings. He also had an RBI single.
METS 3, ROCKIES 2
NEW YORK (AP) - Eric Young made a diving catch to take a go-ahead hit away from Todd Helton in the sixth inning, then raced home with the tiebreaking run in the eighth, and the Mets beat the Rockies.
The Rockies have lost 12 of 18 since the All-Star break and have scored five runs in their last three games.
LaTroy Hawkins got his first save since May 6, 2012, for the Angels.
Scott Atchison (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth inning.
Eric Young led off the eighth with a single against Wilton Lopez (1-4). He was able to take second on Marlon Byrd's deep fly, putting him in position to make it home on Juan Lagares' infield single, a slow chopper to second base, that he just barely beat out.
Young sped up as he rounded third and beat the throw home.
