UNDATED (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers own the majors’ best record at 10-2 and are off to their best start since they opened 13-0 in 1987.

The Brewers ran their winning streak to nine straight by stifling the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-1. Kyle Lohse (lohsh) came within one out of a complete game, allowing four hits while striking out nine. He fanned five straight over the seventh and eighth innings and retired 12 straight before leaving the game following a single by Andrew McCutchen.

Aramis (ah-RAH’-mihs) Ramirez drove in a run and scored once to back Lohse.

In other major league action:

— Carlos Beltran went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer as the New York Yankees beat Boston for the third time in four days, 3-2. Ivan Nova rebounded from a rough outing to limit the Red Sox to two runs and eight hits in 7 1/3 innings.

— Mark Buehrle (BUR’-lee) allowed one run over seven innings to win his third straight start as Toronto blasted Baltimore 11-3. The left-hander has allowed only two runs in 21 innings this season for a 0.86 ERA. Jose Bautista, Colby Rasmus and Brett Lawrie homered for the Blue Jays.

— Pitcher Wade Davis made a wild flip home on a comebacker in the eighth inning, allowing the tying and winning runs to score in Minnesota’s 4-3 win over Kansas City for a three-game sweep.

— Yoenis Cespedes (yoh-EH’-nehs SEHS’-peh-dehs) snapped a scoreless tie by belting a two-run homer in the eighth inning of Oakland’s 3-0 shutout of Seattle. Starting pitchers Scott Kazmir and Chris Young each tossed six scoreless innings.

— The White Sox blew a 2-1 lead in the ninth before Alexei Ramirez hit a walk-off, two-run homer off John Axford to give Chicago a 4-3 win over Cleveland. Marcus Semien also homered for the White Sox, who took three of four from the Indians after dropping their previous 14 meetings.

— Martin Perez scattered five hits over eight innings to lead Texas over Houston 1-0. The left-hander walked three, but was backed by four double-plays. Donnie Murphy’s sacrifice fly in the sixth scored the only run of the game.

— Chris Heisey hit his first grand slam to propel Cincinnati to a 12-4 win over Tampa Bay. Devin Mesoraco homered and drove in a career high four runs, and Joey Votto (VAH’-toh) hit a two-run home run to help the Reds salvage the final game of the series.

— Mike Trout, Albert Pujols (POOO’-hohlz) and Raul Ibanez (ih-BAHN’-yehz) hit consecutive home runs off Bartolo Colon in the first inning of the Angels’ 14-2 laugher over the New York Mets in Anaheim. C.J. Wilson allowed two runs and six hits while striking out nine in seven innings.

— Tyson Ross limited Detroit to a run and six hits in seven innings to pitch San Diego to a 5-1 win over the Tigers. Jedd Gyorko (JER’-koh) and Xavier Nady (NAY’-dee) homered off AL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer, who’s still seeking his first win of the year after surrendering four runs in five innings.

— Justin Upton and Freddie Freeman each hit a two-run homer to lead Atlanta to a 10-2 win and three-game sweep over Washington. Upton and Freeman connected off of Gio Gonzalez, who entered the game with a 2-0 record and 0.75 ERA.

— San Francisco beat Colorado 5-4 on Brandon Crawford’s leadoff homer in the bottom of the 10th. Pablo Sandoval homered and Angel Pagan drove in two runs for the Giants.

— Adrian Gonzalez homered for the fourth consecutive game as the Dodgers outscored the Diamondbacks 8-6 to complete a three-game sweep. Gonzalez launched a three-run shot in the third inning, giving him 10 RBIs in the series.

— Matt Carpenter drove in three runs to lead St. Louis to a 6-4 win over the Chicago Cubs. Carpenter hit a two-run single in the second inning and added a sacrifice fly in the fourth that put St. Louis ahead to stay at 4-3.

— Hot-hitting Chase Utley connected for the tie-breaking home run in Philadelphia’s 4-3 win over Miami. Utley had three hits to raise his average to .500 through ten games. The five-time All-Star has three homers and 10 RBIs.

Disabled lists grow

UNDATED (AP) — Washington has placed third baseman Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day disabled list with a broken right thumb. He was injured diving back into second base trying to avoid being picked off in Saturday’s loss to Atlanta.

Zimmerman is expected to miss between four to six weeks. He is scheduled to see a hand specialist at the Cleveland Clinic Monday. He was injured in the fifth inning Saturday while diving back to second base and getting picked off.

Elsewhere around the majors:

— Tampa Bay has put right-hander Alex Cobb on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique in his left side. Cobb pitched seven innings in a 1-0 win over Cincinnati on Saturday. He’s gone 15 1/3 innings without allowing a run.

— The Toronto Blue Jays have placed second baseman Maicer Izturis (may-SEER’ ihz-TOOR’-is) on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left knee. He suffered the injury in Sunday’s win over Baltimore.

— The Texas Rangers have put third baseman Adrian Beltre (BEHL’-tray) on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to Wednesday. Beltre hasn’t played since coming out of Tuesday’s game at Boston with a strained left quad.

— The Brewers have placed right-hander Brandon Kintzler on the 15-day disabled list with a strained rotator cuff. Kintzler had pitched five innings without an earned run in five appearances.

— Reds starter Mat Latos has been diagnosed with a strained right forearm and won’t be allowed to throw for 10-14 days. It’s a setback for Cincinnati’s No. 2 starter who has been trying to come back from surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee on Feb. 14.

— White Sox manager Robin Ventura says outfielder Avisail Garcia will have his season-ending shoulder surgery on Tuesday. He was injured trying to make a diving catch Wednesday at Colorado.
