National League

• Mets 5, Phillies 4: In New York, Gonzalez Germen came out of the bullpen to bail out fellow rookie Zack Wheeler and help New York hold off Philadelphia.

Marlon Byrd, David Wright and Daniel Murphy each had an RBI single for the Mets, who handed Cole Hamels his latest loss and snapped Philadelphia's seven-game winning streak at Citi Field. Another rookie, Juan Lagares, had a run-scoring single among his three hits.

Today's series finale features a marquee matchup of All-Star pitchers: Mets ace Matt Harvey against lefty Cliff Lee.

• Dodgers 3, Nationals 1: In Washington, Hanley Ramirez doubled to highlight a two-run 10th inning, and Los Angeles Dodgers used seven pitchers to shut down Washington.

Adrian Gonzalez led off the 10th with a double off Craig Stammen (5-5). Ramirez followed with an RBI double for his third hit of the night, then scored two batters later on Andre Ethier's sacrifice fly.

• Padres 5, Cardinals 3: In St. Louis, the Padres had nine base runners the first three innings to take a 4-0 lead, scoring twice in the third on a run-scoring wild pitch.

• Brewers 6, Marlins 0: In Milwaukee, Yovani Gallardo took a shutout into the seventh inning, and Jonathan Lucroy and Rickie Weeks belted home runs.

• Reds 5, Pirates 4: In Cincinnati, Joey Votto drove in a pair of runs, and Shin-Soo Choo extended his hitting streak to a career-high 14 games.

• Rockies 9, Cubs 3: In Denver, Carlos Gonzalez homered, and Todd Helton had three of Colorado's 13 hits.

American League

• Rays 4, Blue Jays 3: In Toronto, Jeremy Hellickson won his fifth straight decision, Desmond Jennings reached base four times, and Tampa Bay earned its 16th win in 18 games.

Rays rookie Wil Myers had two RBIs in his first career start as the cleanup hitter. Myers, who finished 2 for 4, has nine hits in his past 17 at bats.

Since starting the season 14-18, the Rays are a major-league-best 43-23 since May 8.

• Yankees 5, Red Sox 2: In Boston, Brett Gardner and Lyle Overbay each had three hits and drove in a run to back Hiroki Kuroda's seven strong innings.

The victory snapped a three-game losing streak for the injury-riddled Yankees, who hope to be bolstered by the return of captain Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez soon.

It was just Boston's second loss in its last 11 games in Fenway Park.

• Orioles 7, Rangers 4: In Arlington, Texas, Adam Jones homered, and every Baltimore starter had a hit.

• Angels 2, Athletics 0: In Anaheim, Calif., C.J. Wilson outpitched Dan Straily, retiring 18 consecutive batters at one point, and Alberto Callaspo homered.

• Royals 6, Tigers 5: In Kansas City, Mo., Salvador Perez drove in three runs, and Mike Moustakas went 3 for 4 with a game-winning home run.

• Twins 3, Indians 2: In Minneapolis, Kevin Correia threw six sharp innings for his first win in a month, Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau each had two hits and a walk.

Interleague

• White Sox 10, Braves 6: In Chicago, Alex Rios hit a grand slam and drove in five runs, and Jake Peavy pitched six solid innings in his return from the disabled list (fractured rib).

Rios, who had been in a 2-for-20 slump, went 3-for-5 to help Chicago win for just the 10th time in 32 games.
