LOS ANGELES (AP) — Yasiel Puig capped his sensational first month in the major leagues with his first four-hit game, Stephen Fife scattered four hits over seven scoreless innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-1 Sunday.

Puig finished June with 44 hits, surpassing the 42 by Pittsburgh's Bob Elliott in September 1939 for the second-most in a player's first full calendar month in the major leagues. Joe DiMaggio had 48 in May 1936.

Puig also eclipsed the Los Angeles Dodgers' record for most hits in a month by a rookie, set by Steve Sax in August 1982. The Cuban-born right fielder got his first major league triple in the fifth inning and scored on Adrian Gonzalez's double for a 4-0 lead.

A.J. Ellis had three hits, including an RBI double, and threw out two baserunners to help the Dodgers to their eighth victory in nine games.

Fife (3-2) had five strikeouts in his second straight win.

Kyle Kendrick (7-5) gave up four runs and 10 hits in six innings for the Phillies.

PIRATES 2, BREWERS 1, 14 INNINGS

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pinch-hitter Russell Martin singled home the winning run in the 14th inning, lifting Pittsburgh to its ninth straight victory.

The Pirates extended their longest winning streak since 2004, when they took 10 in a row. Pittsburgh reached the midpoint of its season with the best record in the majors at 51-30.

Gaby Sanchez led off the 14th with an infield single. With one out, he stole second for his first steal in more than a year. After a walk, Martin hit a soft liner to center off Francisco Rodriguez (1-1).

Sanchez chugged around third and slid home ahead of the throw by Carlos Gomez.

Tony Watson (2-1) struck out four in three hitless innings as six Pirates relievers held Milwaukee scoreless over the final 11 innings.

GIANTS 5, ROCKIES 2

DENVER (AP) — Madison Bumgarner scattered four hits over seven innings, Hunter Pence hit a two-run homer to help San Francisco end its longest losing streak in three years.
