A-Rod hit, then hits back as Yankees fight back


Pittsburgh’s lead in the National League Central dwindled to one game over St Louis.

Cincinnati’s Homer Bailey allowed one run and three hits in eight innings as the Reds routed the Milwaukee Brewers 9-1, while Julio Teheran pitched around trouble through six scoreless innings as a tired Atlanta Braves bullpen clung on for a 2-1 victory over the Washington Nationals.

In other National League games, the Florida Marlins beat the San Francisco Giants 6-5, the St Louis Cardinals downed the Chicago Cubs 6-1 and the San Diego Padres rallied to defeat the New York Mets 4-3.
