Brewers' Lohse beats Pirates again, 5-3
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Kyle Lohse pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Carlos Gomez homered and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-3 Friday night.
Lohse (3-1) improved to 11-2 in his career against the Pirates, allowing one earned run in a win against them for the second time in six days.
He fell one out shy of a complete game Sunday at Miller Park. This time, he was charged with three runs - two unearned - and four hits with three walks with five strikeouts.
Gomez homered deep to center to lead off the fifth and added an RBI single an inning later as the Brewers rallied from two runs down.
Charlie Morton (0-2) allowed five runs and eight hits in six innings while losing to Lohse for the second time this week. Russell Martin had two hits and two RBIs for the Pirates, who have lost six of eight.
Tulo backs Chatwood and Rockies beat Phillies 12-1
DENVER (AP) - Troy Tulowitzki hit a three-run home run after No. 3 hitter Carlos Gonzalez was intentionally walked in front of him, Tyler Chatwood pitched seven strong innings for his first win of the season, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Philadelphia Phillies 12-1 Friday night.
Tulowitzki went 3 for 3 on the night, drove in five runs and drew a key walk during the Rockies' four-run first inning. Drew Stubbs and Charlie Blackmon added three hits apiece. The 18 hits represented a season high for the Rockies and their run total matched a season high.
Chatwood (1-0), who missed the first two weeks of the season with a left hamstring strain, allowed one unearned run on two hits in his second start of the season and first at home.
Phillies starter Jonathan Pettibone (0-1) went four innings and allowed eight runs on nine hits.
76ers owner Harris calls 19-win season 'success'
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia 76ers owner Joshua Harris calls the 19-win season a success.
Harris says he believes the Sixers successfully completed the first step of their painful rebuilding process. He says the Sixers need at least two to four elite players to become a contender again in the NBA.
Harris has faith in general manager Sam Hinkie to make the right calls and he gave first-year coach Brett Brown an 'A' for his leadership under trying circumstances.
He also thanked the fans for sticking with the Sixers in a 19-63 season that saw them match an NBA record with 26 straight losses.
Mets trade 1B Ike Davis to Pirates
NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Mets have traded slumping first baseman Ike Davis to the Pittsburgh Pirates for minor league pitcher Zack Thornton and a player to be named.
The Mets announced the move just minutes before they played Atlanta on Friday night. Davis was on the field during batting practice earlier in the day.
The 27-year-old was hitting .208 with one home run and five RBIs in 12 games for the Mets. He was platooning with Lucas Duda and Josh Satin at first base.
Davis hit 32 homers for the Mets in 2012 but fell off sharply last year.
Thornton was 2-0 with a 1.23 ERA in four relief appearances at Triple-A Indianapolis. The 25-year-old righty originally was signed by Oakland.
Penguins wary of Blue Jackets after Game 1 escape
PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Columbus Blue Jackets hope the return of forward R.J. Umberger will help them draw even with the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals on Saturday night.
Umberger missed Pittsburgh's 4-3 win in the series opener with an upper body injury. He has been cleared by team doctors and he expects the upstart Blue Jackets to continue the physical play that briefly rattled the Penguins in Game 1.
Columbus took a two-goal lead early in the second period. The Penguins scored the final three goals to escape.
Umberger says the Blue Jackets know they have to get under Pittsburgh's skin to win. Penguins star Sidney Crosby believes his team will be better prepared this time.
Flyers could have G Steve Mason back for Game 2
NEW YORK (AP) - The Philadelphia Flyers might have No. 1 goalie Steve Mason back for Game 2 against the Rangers.
Mason missed Thursday's 4-1 loss to New York because of an undisclosed upper-body injury. He was hurt last Saturday against Pittsburgh, when he was knocked over and hit the back of his head on the ice. Mason and the Flyers have declined to say whether he has a concussion.
Mason took part in a goalie practice Friday at New York's Chelsea Piers and said afterward that he is feeling better than he did a few days earlier. He has set his sights on playing Sunday at Madison Square Garden.
