PHOENIX (AP) - Matt Kemp homered and the Los Angeles Dodgers scored six runs in the fourth inning, thanks in large part to two overturned out calls, to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-5 last night. With the game tied at 2, the Dodgers hit five consecutive singles off Arizona starter Trevor Cahill (3-9) in the fourth.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Madison Bumgarner pitched a one-hitter and the San Francisco Giants beat the Colorado Rockies 3-0 last night to snap a three-game losing streak. The two-time All-Star retired the first 21 batters before Justin Morneau doubled down the right field line to end the bid for perfection. That was the only baserunner that Bumgarner (15-9) gave up. He fanned the next three hitters and matched his career high of 13 strikeouts.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Mike Trout had an RBI double and Albert Pujols added a two-run single during Los Angeles' five-run fourth inning, and the Angels regained sole possession of the majors' best record with an 8-2 victory over the Miami Marlins last night. Matt Shoemaker (13-4) yielded two hits over seven scoreless innings as the Angels (78-53) moved one game ahead of the AL West rival Oakland Athletics, who lost to Houston.

HOUSTON (AP) - Chris Carter hit his 32nd homer, a three-run drive in the eighth inning that lifted the Houston Astros over the Oakland Athletics 4-2 last night. Oakland starter Jason Hammel had retired 10 straight batters when he was replaced by Luke Gregerson (3-3) for the eighth inning.
