Phillies 4, Arizona 2-Ryan Howard homered and scored twice as the Phillies took the weekend series at Citizens Bank Park. It was Howard’s first homer since June 16th. The win went to Roberto Hernandez, who improved to 5-8. The 46-59 Phillies start a three-game series Monday night in New York against the Mets.

Pirates 7, Colorado 5-Josh Harrison and Gregory Polanco hit solo home runs in the top of the eighth inning to propel the Pirates to a Sunday win in Denver. Tony Watson got the win as the Bucs salvaged a game in the weekend set. The third-place Pirates are now 55-49 and are three games behind Milwaukee in the NL Central. The Bucs begin a West Coast trip Monday night in San Francisco.

Orioles 3, Seattle 2 (10)-Manny Machado hit a base-loaded sacrifice fly in the top of the tenth as the Birds took three out of four in the series. T. J.

NASCAR:

Jeff Gordon powered past race leader and teammate Kasey Kahne coming out of the final restart Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and drove off to his second win of the season and a record fifth victory at the famed “Brickyard.” Gordon, who started second alongside pole sitter Kevin Harvick, led forty laps, including the final seventeen trips around the two-point-five-mile oval. He joins Hendrick Motorsports teammates Dale Earnhardt Junior and Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano as drivers who have now clinched spots in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup with six races remaining in the regular season. Brad Keselowski leads the Sprint Cup standings, with Jimmie Johnson second, Jeff Gordon third, Dale Earnhardt Jr. fourth, and Carl Edwards completing the top five. The Sprint Cup Series returns to Pocono International Speedway for Sunday’s Go Bowling Dot Com 400.
