Elsewhere, pinch-hitter Scott Hairston had an RBI sacrifice fly in the last of the 11th against reliever Brandon Cumpton as the Washington Nationals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-5 to sweep the three-game series.
Catcher Jonathan Lucroy homered and drove in five runs, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers with a 7-2 victory.
