ATLANTA (AP) - Cole Hamels took a shutout into the ninth inning, Cody Asche hit a three-run homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Atlanta Braves 5-1 Monday night in a game overshadowed by a fatal fall at Turner Field.
A police spokesman said a man died after falling more than 60 feet from an upper-level platform to a parking lot. He said the fall occurred before 9 p.m. and appeared to be an accident.
Hamels (5-13) struck out nine with one walk while allowing six hits and one run as the Phillies snapped a streak of 11 straight road losses.
Asche, a left-handed hitter, pulled a fastball from Julio Teheran (9-6) about three rows deep into the right-field seats in the sixth inning.
Phillies manager Charlie Manuel earned his 1,000th career win.
REDS 2, CUBS 0
CHICAGO (AP) - Mat Latos allowed six hits in eight innings, and Brandon Phillips hit a two-run homer in the seventh to lead Cincinnati over All-Star Travis Wood and Chicago.
Latos (12-3) struck out nine for the Reds, who are 13-1 in their last 14 games at Wrigley Field and gained a half-game on idle Pittsburgh and St. Louis in the NL Central.
Aroldis Chapman struck out the side in the ninth inning for his 28th save in 32 tries to hand the Cubs their third straight home shutout loss. They have gone 32 2-3 innings without a run at Wrigley Field.
Phillips provided all the offense with his 15th homer of the season.
Wood (7-9) also went eight innings and allowed Phillips' homer among four hits.
ROCKIES 14, PADRES 2
DENVER (AP) - Jhoulys Chacin pitched eight solid innings and drove in a run with a sacrifice fly, leading Colorado past San Diego on a rainy night for its fourth consecutive victory.
D.J. LeMahieu had three hits, including a homer, a double and two RBIs in a game that included a 63-minute weather delay. Dexter Fowler went 3 for 4 with a double and four RBIs, Wilin Rosario added three RBIs and Nolan Arenado had four hits and an RBI as the Rockies put up a season high in runs.
Chacin (11-6) worked out of first-inning trouble by inducing Yonder Alonso to ground into a double play with runners at first and third and one out.
Edinson Volquez (8-10) allowed eight runs on nine hits in 4 1-3 innings.
