ATLANTA — Jason Heyward homered and drove in two runs to help the Atlanta Braves beat St. Louis on Sunday night, capping their first three-game sweep of the Cardinals at home in 10 years.
The Braves broke a 2-all tie with two runs in the sixth inning off rookie Shelby Miller (10-7) and two relievers. Pinch-hitter Joey Terdoslavich drove in Chris Johnson with the go-ahead run. Heyward added another run-scoring single.
Heyward has nine homers this season, including two in the series between NL division leaders.
Kris Medlen (7-10) allowed two runs on eight hits and a walk in six innings to snap his three-game losing streak.
Miller allowed three runs, two earned, on six hits and two walks in 5 2-3 innings.
The Braves finished their first three-game sweep of the Cardinals at Turner Field since April 22-24, 2003.
Cubs 2, Giants 1:Travis Wood pitched a four-hitter over seven innings and had a home run among his two hits in helping the Chicago Cubs complete a three-game sweep in San Francisco for the first time in 20 years, beating the Giants 2-1 Sunday.
Welington Castillo also homered for the Cubs, who won their third straight and fifth of seven.
Pablo Sandoval drove in a run for the Giants, who lost their fourth straight and seventh of eight.
Dodgers 1, Reds 0: Yasiel Puig homered with two outs in the 11th inning to give Los Angeles the victory over Cincinnati.
Cincinnati pitchers set a franchise record with 20 strikeouts. Puig, Adrian Gonzalez, Hanley Ramirez and Tim Federowicz each fanned three times as the Dodgers established their highest single-game total for strikeouts since the franchise moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles following the 1957 season.
Nationals 14, Mets 1: Wilson Ramos hit a grand slam and rookie right-hander Taylor Jordan had six strong innings for his first major league win to lead Washington to the rout of New York.
The Nationals won their third game in a row and fourth in five to salvage a tumultuous 11-game homestand.
They lost the first six games after the All-Star break, fired hitting coach Rick Eckstein last Monday and demoted former closer Drew Storen to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.
