Posted Sep 10, 2020 1:25 PM

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Zach Davies won his career-best, fifth-consecutive start and Mitch Moreland hit his first homer for the Padres as San Diego beat the Colorado Rockies, 5-3, to complete its sweep of the three-game series. Davies (7-2) was fantastic, after allowing a run in the first, as he tied a season-high with eight strikeouts, plowing through the Rockies with his changeup and splitter. He gave up three runs on five hits, with two walks, over six innings as the Padres won their fourth straight game. Trevor Rosenthal, the third Padres’ reliever, pitched the ninth for his ninth save.

Wednesday in the Majors:

The Milwaukee Brewers scored 19 runs for the first time in a decade on Wednesday, and it wasn’t close to being the day’s biggest offensive assault.

Milwaukee’s former major league team outscored the current one as the Braves obliterated their franchise scoring record in a 29-9 dismantling of the Marlins. Adam Duvall led Atlanta’s 23-hit assault with three homers and nine RBIs, including a grand slam.

By the time Ronald Acuña Jr. laced a three-run double in the sixth, the Braves had set a team record for runs and led 25-8. Acuña also hit a three-run blast, one of seven homers belted by Atlanta.

-- In Detroit, Corbin Burnes tossed one-hit ball for seven innings before the Brewers completed a 19-0 laugher over the Tigers. He struck out 11 in his third start without an earned run allowed. It was the most runs for the Brewers since they scored 20 at Pittsburgh in 2010. Jedd Gyorko  homered twice, and Jacob Nottingham, Ryan Braun and Tyrone Taylor also went deep for the Brewers. Milwaukee also hit eight doubles to set a franchise record with 13 extra-base hits.

— Chris Taylor and AJ Pollock each hit RBI singles in the 10th inning and the Dodgers overcame a subpar performance by ace Clayton Kershaw in a 6-4 triumph over the Diamondbacks. Mookie Betts and Kiké (KEE'-kay) Hernández each hit a solo homer for the NL West leaders.

— Mike Yastrzemski smacked a three-run homer and the Giants coasted to their fifth consecutive win by crushing the Mariners, 10-1. Players took afternoon batting practice with the lights turned on amid raging wildfires in Northern California. Some ash flakes rained down on the ballpark, and the smell of smoke was noticeable but not overpowering.

— The Reds picked up a 3-0 shutout win over the Cubs as Trevor Bauer tossed three-hit ball while fanning 10 over 7 2/3 innings. Mike Moustakas crushed a three-run homer in the first inning off Yu Darvish, who ended a seven-start inning streak.

— Pete Alonso’s 11th home run of the season broke a 6-6 deadlock in the eighth inning of the Mets’ 7-6 comeback win over the Orioles. Jeff McNeil, Michael Conforto and Andres Gimenez also went deep after Baltimore took a 5-1 lead.

— Ramon Laureano’s RBI single in the bottom of the ninth completed the Athletics’ 3-2 comeback over the Astros. Tommy LaStella tied it with a two-run double in the seventh after Yuli Gurriel and George Springer homered for Houston.

— Gleyber Torres drove in four runs and the Yankees snapped a five-game losing streak with a 7-2 win over the Blue Jays. Torres and DJ LeMahieu homered to back Deivi García, who gave up two runs and five hits in seven innings for his first victory in three major league starts.

— Danny Duffy won in Cleveland for the first time in nearly six years by pitching four-hit ball into the sixth inning of the Royals’ 3-0 shutout of the Indians. Adalberto Mondesi broke a scoreless tie with an RBI single in the sixth as Kansas City won its second straight since a seven-game skid.

— The Pirates were clobbered on Roberto Clemente Day as James McCann homered twice and collected four RBIs in the White Sox’s 8-1 romp in Pittsburgh. Dane Dunning scattered three hits over six scoreless innings for his first big league win.

— The Rangers have just their third winning streak of the season after Isiah Kiner-Falefa matched a career high with four hits and Nick Solak had two RBIs in a 7-3 decision over the Angels. Texas had lost six in row and 18 of 21 before winning the series opener Tuesday.
