Dodgers beat Braves 3-2 for 5th straight win

LOS ANGELES--Matt Kemp singled in the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning and Zack Greinke struck out a season-high 13 batters as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves 3-2 on Wednesday for their season-best fifth straight victory.

Kemp scored the Dodgers' first two runs of the game, including his 11th homer leading off the second.

Pinch-hitter Justin Turner singled to open the 10th and took second on a wild pitch by David Hale (3-3). Kemp followed with the winning single to left.

San Francisco reliever Jean Machi took advantage of a huge baserunning blunder by Pittsburgh, tagging out two runners who wandered away on the same play as the Giants beat the Pirates 7-5 to end a six-game losing streak.

San Francisco stopped a losing streak that matched its longest of the season, and avoided the club's first winless homestand of at least seven games in the 15-year history of AT&T Park.

At Cleveland, Corey Kluber pitched a three-hitter for his first career shutout, outdueling Felix Hernandez to lead the Indians over the Seattle Mariners 2-0.

Kluber (11-6) gave up three singles, struck out eight and walked none.

At Chicago, Brandon Barnes hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the 10th inning as the Colorado Rockies beat the Cubs 6-4.

Colorado loaded the bases with two walks and Michael McKenry's third hit of the game before Barnes singled with one out against Wesley Wright (0-2). Drew Stubbs then scored off a wild pitch, helping the Rockies stop a three-game slide.

The National League Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers blanked the Tampa Bay Rays 5-0 after Yovani Gallardo gave up just four hits in seven innings and Martin Maldonado equaled a career high with four RBIs.

Baltimore's Kevin Gausman allowed three hits over seven innings and Adam Jones homered as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Los Angeles Angels 4-3 for their seventh win in nine games
