Howard's 3-run homer seals deal for Phillies

PHILADELPHIA -- Ryan Howard hit a three-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 6-3 win over the Colorado Rockies in the National League on Wednesday.

Chase Utley hit a tying, RBI single off Boone Logan before Howard drove one out to left-center for his fifth career walk-off homer.

Closer La Troy Hawkins (2-1) got the first out in the ninth before Tony Gwynn Jr. reached on second baseman D.J. LeMahieu's throwing error. Ben Revere then followed with a single to right before Logan entered and allowed Utley's line-drive single to right that scored Gwynn.

Howard then connected on a 2-2 pitch for his ninth homer.

Jonathan Papelbon (1-1) tossed a perfect ninth for the win.

Brewers 8, Orioles 3 Yovani Gallardo earned a victory with his arm a day after getting a win with his bat as Milwaukee overcame two home runs by Nelson Cruz to beat Baltimore in an interleague matchup.

Ryan Braun hit an early two-run double and Khris Davis added a three-run homer in the eighth.

Cruz hit two solo shots and leads Major League Baseball with 19 home runs.

On Tuesday night, Gallardo delivered a game-winning RBI double as a pinch-hitter in the 10th inning.

Back on the mound, Gallardo (3-3) gave up three runs on four hits and five walks in 6 2-3 innings. He also went 1 for 2 at the plate.

Braun's double in the second inning helped the Brewers build a 4-1 lead against Bud Norris (3-5).

Diamondbacks 12, Padres 6 Chase Anderson became the first Arizona pitcher to win his first three career starts and the Diamondbacks set a first-inning team scoring record with eight runs on eight hits.

Rookie Tommy Medica fell a single shy of becoming the first Padre to hit for the cycle.

Prado and Paul Goldschmidt both hit a two-run homer and drove in three runs for Arizona. Diamondbacks rookie Chris Owings had his first MLB four-hit game.

Arizona, taking two of three from the Padres, chased starter Tim Stauffer (2-1) after one-third of an inning.

Anderson (3-0) got big support for the second straight outing. The Diamondbacks scored 18 runs for him in his previous start.

Reds 3, Dodgers 2 Brandon Phillips hit a two-run homer against Clayton Kershaw and Homer Bailey pitched seven effective innings to lead Cincinnati.

Bailey (5-3) allowed two runs and five hits while striking out six.

Yasiel Puig, who has reached base safely in 29 straight games, led off the Dodgers' sixth with an opposite-field homer to right-center that narrowed the gap to 3-2.

But former Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton retired Puig and Hanley Ramirez on flyballs for the last two outs in the eighth after replacing Manny Parra with a runner at second, and Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect ninth for his fifth save.

Kershaw (3-2) allowed three runs and seven hits in seven innings and struck out nine.

Giants 5, Cubs 0 Tim Lincecum and five relievers combined on a two-hitter for San Francisco.
