Cardinals 10, Brewers 1
(Milwaukee, Wis.) -- The Cardinals have won most of the year behind a strong rotation. Against the Brewers on Sunday, and during the entire series at Miller Park, they showed how powerful they can be when firing on all cylinders.
Allen Craig's bases-loaded double scored all three runners to key a six-run second inning, and the Cardinals completed their first four-game sweep of Milwaukee with a 10-1 victory on Sunday.
Reds 7, Cubs 4
(Chicago) -- Edwin Jackson can be dominating for 90 percent of the game. The Reds took advantage of that 10 percent when he's not.
Jay Bruce hit an RBI double, and Todd Frazier added a two-run single in the fourth, and Joey Votto had three hits, including an RBI double, to lift the Reds to a 7-4 victory Sunday over the Cubs and complete a sweep of the three-game series.
Royals 6, White Sox 5
(Kansas City, Kan.) -- Nothing is automatic in the wacky world of Major League Baseball. White Sox closer Addison Reed can now attest to that as it relates to his 2013 season.
Reed took the mound in the ninth inning on Sunday with a 10-of-10 saves resume this year and 17 consecutive conversions dating to Aug. 25 of last season.
But the percentages finally caught up with Reed and the White Sox as Billy Butler delivered a two-out, two-run double to tie the game. Then, the Royals won it in the 10th when Alex Gordon's fly ball to right off Brian Omogrosso with the bases loaded carried over Alex Rios' head for a walk-off single as the Royals prevailed, 6-5.
Phillies' Halladay Likely Headed To DL
(Philadelphia, PA) -- It appears Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay is headed to the disabled list. Halladay was rocked for nine runs in Sunday's loss the Marlins. He has a sore shoulder and needs further evaluation. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. says Halladay will be examined this week in California and is likely headed to the DL.
