Error Gives Padres Win Over Rockies – MLB Roundup
UNDATED (AP) — Lance Lynn and the St. Louis Cardinals have ended the Milwaukee Brewers’ nine-game winning streak.
Lynn allowed just three hits while striking out 11 over seven innings of the Cardinals’ 4-0 shutout of the Brewers. Jhonny Peralta (JAH’-nee peh-RAHL’-tah) put the Redbirds ahead with a solo homer in the second before Jon Jay’s three-run blast capped the scoring in the sixth.
Milwaukee still owns the majors’ best record at 10-3.

UNDATED (AP) — The Yankees say X-rays on the right hand of catcher Brian McCann were negative after he was hit by a thrown pitch Sunday. Another Yankee catcher, Francisco Cervelli, was playing at first base because of injuries to others, but he left Sunday’s game in the fourth inning after getting hurt running to first.
