LOS ANGELES (AP) — Yasiel Puig homered with two outs in the 11th inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 1-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday.

Cincinnati pitchers set a franchise record with 20 strikeouts, 11 by starter Tony Cingrani. He held Los Angeles to one hit over seven innings.

Puig, Adrian Gonzalez, Hanley Ramirez and Tim Federowicz each fanned three times as the Dodgers established a team high since 1900.

Puig connected against Curtis Partch (0-1) for his 10th home run and 23rd RBI in 48 big league games. The excitable rookie tossed his bat, circled the bases and then slid into home plate, where teammates were waiting for him after his first game-ending homer.

The NL West leaders won for the 26th time in 32 games and extended their advantage to 2½ games over Arizona. Brandon League (6-3) pitched two hitless innings for the win.

BRAVES 5, CARDINALS 2

ATLANTA (AP) — Jason Heyward homered and drove in two runs to help Atlanta complete a three-game sweep of St. Louis in a series between NL division leaders.

The Braves broke a 2-all tie with two runs in the sixth off rookie Shelby Miller (10-7) and two relievers. Pinch-hitter Joey Terdoslavich drove in Chris Johnson with the go-ahead run. Heyward added another run-scoring single.

Kris Medlen (7-10) allowed two runs and eight hits in six innings to snap his three-game losing streak. Craig Kimbrel pitched a perfect ninth to take the NL lead with his 31st save.

It was Atlanta's first three-game sweep of the Cardinals at Turner Field since April 22-24, 2003.

The Cardinals, who lead the NL in batting average and scoring, were held to three runs in the series.

MARLINS 3, PIRATES 2

MIAMI (AP) — Jose Fernandez had a team rookie record 13 strikeouts in a pitching duel with Gerrit Cole, leading Miami past Pittsburgh.
