Ian Stewart hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning, lifting the Colorado Rockies over Cincinnati, 4-3, Monday afternoon and ending the Reds' winning streak at seven games. The National League wild card-leading Rockies won their fourth in a row despite losing Troy Tulowitzki. The shortstop left in the seventh inning after a run-scoring single because of a strained lower back and was listed as day to day. Rafael Betancourt (2-1) pitched a perfect eighth inning and Franklin Morales, filling in for the injured Huston Street, pitched out of a jam to pick up his fourth save in five chances.

CLEVELAND -- Jhonny Peralta hit a three-run homer off Andy Pettitte in the fifth inning and the Cleveland Indians won their fourth in a row Friday night, beating the New York Yankees, 6-4, in the Yankees' first visit since last year's American League playoffs when they were bombarded by swarming bugs. Peralta's big shot off Pettitte (3-2) put the Indians ahead, 4-3, and Franklin Gutierrez followed with a homer off the left-hander.

The Chicago Cubs optioned struggling center fielder Corey Patterson to triple-A Iowa on Thursday night after their eighth consecutive loss. Patterson, who has a .168 average in 28 games since June 1, lost his job recently to Jerry Hairston after apparently falling out of favor with Manager Dusty Baker. Jason Dubois, who was platooning in left field with Todd Hollandsworth, also was sent to Iowa. The Cubs recalled outfielders Adam Greenberg and Matt Murton from double-A Tennessee.

Nick Hundley homered in the fifth inning to start the comeback and drove in the tiebreaking run with an eighth-inning single off Rafael Betancourt, and the San Diego Padres dealt the NL wild card-leading Colorado Rockies a disheartening 5-4 loss Thursday night. Troy Tulowitzki gave the Rockies an early 3-0 lead with a three-run homer, his 30th, off Clayton Richard in the first inning, but Colorado's bats went silent after that. Joe Beimel (1-6) took the loss for Colorado, giving up one run while getting only two outs, as Rockies Manager Jim Tracy used five relievers after Jason Hammel gave up two runs in 6 1/3 innings.

C.C. Sabathia's defense deserted him -- again. Cleveland's ace tied a career high with 11 strikeouts, but the Minnesota Twins scored three eighth-inning runs and beat the Indians, 4-1, Sunday. Sabathia (13-6) was coming off a hard-luck 1-0 loss to Boston's Daisuke Matsuzaka on Tuesday, when the only run scored on a misread fly ball.

The lineup told Clayton Kershaw, “best of luck.” Go on, try and win with this thing of beauty. The Dodgers supported Kershaw with a lineup that screamed Camelback Ranch. Out of the lineup were Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez (disabled list), A.J. Ellis (strained oblique) and Carl Crawford (sore from his Thursday wall collision, and 1 for 18 in his career vs. Rockies starter Jon Garland). So Mark Ellis, 35, was the leadoff hitter for the first time this season. Andre Ethier batted second.
