ATLANTA - A kid from West Chester lined Jonathan Papelbon's slider to first base. Darin Ruf snared it, Papelbon pumped his fist a few times, and four Phillies pitchers could bask in a strange moment.

The Baltimore Orioles weren't throwing bats or breaking chairs in the clubhouse after failing to complete a sweep of the Minnesota Twins.
The new kids got things rolling and the familiar face with the bushy beard brought the win home.
Sure, it would have been great for the Pirates if they had swept the Cincinnati Reds Sunday and hit that elusive five-game winning streak for the first time this season. They took an early lead against starter Johnny Cueto and had their starter, Francisco Liriano, dealing. But a couple home-run swings by Chris Heisey - one against Liriano, the other against reliever Jared Hughes - led to a 3-2 loss. It's hard to feel too badly about it or be mad at the club.

Jorge Soler has never lacked confidence. Even before being promoted to the major leagues last week, the Cuban slugger declared this season to be "his time."
CHICAGO - Inspired by a pre-game visit from United States Little League champion Jackie Robinson West, the Cubs beat National League Central co-leader Milwaukee, 4-2, despite the absence of Anthony Rizzo, who didn't start for the seventh consecutive game because of lower back stiffness. Rizzo will undergo an MRI if the discomfort doesn't subside.

Hunter Pence's RBI double in the eighth highlighted a two-run inning as the San Francisco Giants defeated the Colorado Rockies, 4-2, in the conclusion of a suspended game from earlier this season.
The Brewers' elongated stay atop the NL Central is nearly over, as Welington Castillo's home run and three RBI led the Chicago Cubs to a 4-2 win over Milwaukee in the opener of a three-game series.
Six errors did in the New York Mets on Monday as the Miami Marlins took a back-and-forth series opener, 9-6, from their NL East rivals.
After giving up their early lead, the Miami Marlins took advantage of the New York Mets' miscues late.
Matt Joyce needed just one swing to overcome a tough day.
Matt Joyce collected the game-winning hit with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th inning, and Tampa Bay posted a 4-3 victory over Boston in the finale of a four-game series.
The Reds plan to transfer right-hander Homer Bailey to the 60-day disabled list on Tuesday, ending his chances of pitching again this season.
In an otherwise forgettable season, Cole Hamels and three relief pitchers gave Philadelphia Phillies fans something to remember on Monday.
