PHILADELPHIA — Nate Schierholtz hit an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Friday night.
Pinch-hitter Laynce Nix hit a tying, two-run double in the seventh, and the Phillies won for the 10th time in 14 games.
Jimmy Rollins walked off Will Harris (1-1) to start the bottom of the ninth. Rollins advanced to second on Juan Pierre's sacrifice. After Chase Utley was intentionally walked, both runners advanced on a wild pitch. Schierholtz then hit a sharp grounder to right field past a drawn-in infield.
The five-time defending NL East champion Phillies are within four games of .500 for the first time since they were 36-40 on June 26.
NEW YORK — Paul Maholm and the Braves bullpen combined to give Atlanta three straight shutouts for the first time in exactly a decade, and the NL wild-card leaders beat the New York Mets.
Coming off two 1-0 wins over Colorado, the Braves' staff stretched its scoreless streak to 28 innings. Atlanta last pitched three straight shutouts on Sept. 4-7, 2002, according to STATS LLC.
Jason Heyward hit his 25th homer in the fourth inning and Dan Uggla also connected.
CINCINNATI — Matt Dominguez hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning that broke Aroldis Chapman's streak of 27 consecutive saves and powered the Houston Astros to a victory over the Cincinnati Reds.
Chapman (5-5) took a 3-2 lead into the ninth, but had his club-record streak broken by a player swinging with a sore left hand.
PITTSBURGH — Travis Wood gave up just one hit over six innings and the Chicago Cubs stopped a six-game losing streak Friday night with a 12-2 win over the mistake-prone Pittsburgh Pirates, who made seven errors in their worst defensive night in over a quarter-century.
Wood (5-12) ended an eight-game skid of his own, striking out five and walking three to win for the first time in more than two months.
WASHINGTON — Stephen Strasburg matched his career low by lasting only three innings in his likely final home start of the season, allowing five runs Friday night in the Washington Nationals' 9-7, 10-inning loss to the Miami Marlins.
Strasburg, 15-6 with a 3.16 ERA, allowed two runs in the first, one in the second and two in the third, giving up six hits.
