PHILADELPHIA (AP) — John Lannan tossed four-hit ball over eight innings against his former team, Ben Revere had three hits and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 Monday night.

Lannan (2-3) had four strikeouts in his longest outing in four years. The lefty registered 12 groundouts to beat the team he played for his first six seasons in the majors.

Jonathan Papelbon allowed two runs in a shaky ninth to earn his 19th save in 23 tries.

Dan Haren (4-10) came off the disabled list and took the loss after missing two weeks because of right shoulder inflammation. Haren allowed two runs and seven hits in five innings, striking out a season-high seven.

Revere and Jimmy Rollins, the 1-2 hitters in Philadelphia's lineup were 5 for 9 with three runs and one RBI.

DODGERS 6, DIAMONDBACKS 1

PHOENIX (AP) — Zack Greinke gave up two hits in seven scoreless innings in his first game against Arizona since last month's bench-clearing brawl, and Los Angeles snapped the Diamondbacks' five-game winning streak.

Greinke (7-2) struck out seven and walked two in his fourth straight win. He also had a career-high three hits.

Hanley Ramirez singled three times to extend his career-best hitting streak to 19 games and was one of five Dodgers with an RBI.

Los Angeles, winner of 13 of 16, tied its season high with 17 hits — 16 of them singles.

Randall Delgado (1-3) allowed three runs and 11 hits in six innings.

Andre Ethier also had three hits as Los Angeles climbed within 3½ games of the first-place Diamondbacks in the NL West.

BREWERS 4, REDS 3

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Center fielder Carlos Gomez robbed Joey Votto of a potential go-ahead homer with a spectacular catch in the ninth inning, saving Milwaukee's victory over Cincinnati.

Jonathan Lucroy homered for the third consecutive game for the last-place Brewers. Jean Segura had three hits off Homer Bailey (5-7) in the right-hander's first start since his second no-hitter in 10 months.
