Braves beat Brewers on Chipper's 3-run homer

Chipper Jones hit a three-run homer in his return after missing two games, Brandon Beachy pitched seven strong innings and the surging Braves beat the Milwaukee Brewers, 7-4, Sunday for a three-game sweep in Atlanta. "It was a pretty cool moment," said Jones, who announced in spring training he will retire after the season. "This year is going to be filled with a lot of moments, I hope." Jason Heyward also homered for the Braves, who have won five straight after losing their first four games.

Dodgers 5, Padres 4: Los Angeles turned a triple play in the top of the ninth, then Dee Gordon singled home the winning run in the bottom half for a three-game sweep. Matt Kemp hit his fourth homer in three games.

Marlins 5, Astros 4: Omar Infante and Hanley Ramirez hit Miami's first homers in its new ballpark. Ramirez tied the game in the eighth against Wilton Lopez with a two-run homer that cleared the 418-foot sign in centerfield, then singled home the winning run with one out in the 11th.

Diamondbacks 5, Rockies 2: Trevor Cahill earned his first win with Arizona and Chris Young homered and drove in three runs. Cahill held host Colorado to four singles in 71/3 innings.

Cardinals 10, Cubs 3: Jake Westbrook allowed one earned run in seven strong innings and rookie Matt Carpenter homered, tripled and drove in five runs for host St. Louis. Cubs starter Paul Maholm surrendered six runs in four innings.

Reds 8, Nationals 5: Joey Votto hit a two-run double in the 11th inning and visiting Cincinnati avoided a four-game sweep. The Reds, who had scored just 10 runs in losing five of six, scored their most runs in a game this season.

Pirates 4, Giants 1: Kevin Correia pitched six effective innings, Garrett Jones homered and visiting Pittsburgh ended a five-game skid. -- AP
