Baseball Recap : August 30

Dodgers 3, Phillies 0
Hiroki Kuroda carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning before Shane Victorino singled with one out, the Phillies' only hit against the Dodgers, who trimmed their deficit in the NL Wild Card race to 5 1/2 games. Wrap >
Rockies 2, Giants 1
The Rockies picked up a game in the NL Wild Card chase thanks to a ninth-inning rally featuring Carlos Gonzalez, who stroked a game-tying RBI triple and then scored the go-ahead run on a Giants error. Wrap >
Rays 6, Blue Jays 2
After Carl Crawford reached on an Aaron Hill error with two outs, Carlos Pena hit a three-run blast in the third that proved to be the difference as Wade Davis and the Rays defeated the Blue Jays in the series opener. Wrap >
Yankees 11, A's 5
A's ace Trevor Cahill saw his gaudy August numbers take a hit in the Bronx, where Mark Teixeira returned from a brief injury absence with authority, missing the cycle by a triple en route to an easy win for the Yankees. Wrap >
Reds 5, Brewers 4, 10 innings
Jay Bruce got things going for the Reds with a first-inning homer off Randy Wolf, and he capped it off with a walk-off single in the 10th off Trevor Hoffman, scoring pinch-runner Brandon Phillips from second base. Wrap >
Astros 3, Cardinals 0
J.A. Happ allowed only two hits -- harmless singles in the first and eighth -- to shut out the team that knocked him out after just one inning in their last meeting. Brett Wallace had an RBI double in his first three-hit game. Wrap >
Braves 9, Mets 3
Matching a career high with four RBIs, rookie Jason Heyward gave the Braves an early lead over the Mets, belting a three-run blast as the NL East leaders continued their impressive play at home with a blowout win. Wrap >
Rangers 3, Royals 0
C.J. Wilson turned in a brilliant performance over 7 2/3 innings to get the best of Kyle Davies in a pitchers' duel and shut out KC in the process. Wilson improved to 7-0 since the All-Star break with the victory. Wrap >
White Sox 10, Indians 6
Brent Lillibridge, who committed an error that helped the Tribe score three off Bobby Jenks to force extras, homered to key a four-run 11th as the White Sox won to pull within four games of the Twins in the AL Central. Wrap >
D-backs 7, Padres 2
Joe Saunders gave up two runs four pitches into the game, but kept the Padres' bats quiet over the rest of his eight-inning outing. Mark Reynolds picked up his starter with a pair of two-run blasts and five total RBIs. Wrap >
Angels 5, Mariners 3
Peter Bourjos, Bobby Abreu and Hideki Matsui each went deep in the sixth to snap the Angels' 31-inning scoreless stretch, while Ervin Santana and the Halos' bullpen kept the Mariners at bay in Seattle. Wrap >
Cubs 14, Pirates 2
In Mike Quade's home debut as manager of the Cubs, Carlos Zambrano struck out seven and hit the 21st homer of his career, while Chicago put together a seven-run fourth and four-run fifth on "Andre Dawson Day." Wrap >
Nationals 9, Marlins 3
Ryan Zimmerman and Adam Dunn both ripped three-run homers to power the Nationals past the Marlins following a 2-hour, 49-minute rain delay. Hanley Ramirez and Brett Hayes each hit a blast for Florida.  Wrap >
