Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Ryan Dempster tossed six shutout innings, helping the Chicago Cubs to a 4-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the middle installment of a three-game set. Dempster (5-3) fanned five, scattered four hits and walked three for Chicago, which has won four of its last five contests. Luis Valbuena registered a pair of hits, an RBI and a run scored, while Reed Johnson and Geovany Soto each racked up two hits apiece. Joe Saunders (4-6) was charged with four runs -- three earned -- on eight hits for the D-backs, who have dropped eight of their past 11 games.

Final Score: Atlanta 8, New York 7

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Jason Heyward drove in the go-ahead run as part of a three-run eighth inning, lifting the Atlanta Braves to an 8-7 win over the New York Mets in the middle installment of a three-game series at Turner Field. Michael Bourn and Martin Prado had consecutive RBI singles off Bobby Parnell (2-2) prior to Heyward's at-bat, a single to right. Freddie Freeman hit a two- run double among his three hits and Bourn added a pair of RBI for the Braves, who extended their winning streak to six games. Eric Hinske also had an RBI in the victory. Anthony Varvaro (1-0) notched his first major league win with a scoreless inning in relief and Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth to record his 27th save of the season. Ruben Tejada drove in a pair of runs and Andres Torres added three hits for the Mets, who have dropped three straight.

Final Score: Cincinnati 3, St. Louis 2 (10 innings)

Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Ryan Ludwick's one-out solo homer in the 10th inning gave the Reds a 3-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in the second edition of a three-game set. Sam LeCure (3-2) pitched a perfect top of the frame for the Reds, who have won five straight games. Jay Bruce slammed a pair of doubles and knocked in a run for Cincinnati. Victor Marte (2-2) replaced Marc Rzepczynski in the 10th, but served up the deciding blast to left field.
