BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Red Sox completed a three-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals with a 6-0 win yesterday. Jon Lester allowed no earned runs for the third time in four starts. The All-Star left-hander struck out eight and gave up two walks and four hits in eight innings. Only one Royals player reached third base.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers salvaged the finale of a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals with a 4-3 victory last night. The Dodgers pulled into a virtual tie for first place with San Francisco in the NL West despite a so-so outing from Clayton Kershaw. Adrian Gonzalez hit a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning off closer Trevor Rosenthal.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Yasiel Puig was not in the Los Angeles Dodgers lineup after getting hit in the hand by a pitch. Puig was struck on the left hand by a pitch from Joe Kelly in the third inning on Saturday. Matt Holliday was in the St. Louis lineup a day after he was shaken up while diving back into second base on a pickoff attempt in the first inning.

PHOENIX (AP) - Josh Collmenter threw seven sharp innings as the Arizona Diamondbacks completed a three-game sweep of the Cubs with a 3-2 victory yesterday. The only run off Collmenter came on Anthony Rizzo's 23rd home run of the season. Jake Arrieta allowed three runs and four hits in 6 2-3 innings for the Cubs.
