Hamels, Happ lose; 3 hits for Bourn

In Philadelphia Thursday, the Dodgers completed the 4-game sweep of the Phillies, coming from behind to top the Fightin' Phils, 8-3.  Cole Hamels , who had a hit and scored a run in the Phillies' 3-run 3rd inning was charged with the loss, his second in a row to fall to 8-3 on the year. Cole allowed 4 runs, 3 earned on 6 hits and 1 walk, striking out 6 on the way..........In Houston, the news was no better for Jay Happ, as the Cardinals got the the Astros' lefthander for 4 runs on 5 hits and 5 walks (!) en route to a 14-2 spanking of Houston.  Jay is now 4-6, 4.94 for the year.

In Detroit, the Tigers salvaged the final game of their series with the Indians, 7-5.  Quintin Berry (.306) led off the 1st with a single and started a 4-run rally from which the Indians never recovered.  Lou Marson had a hit and scored a run for Cleveland, extending his hitting streak to 7 consecutive games........In Miami, Michael Bourn (.305) had 3 hits and a walk,  scored 2 runs and drove in 3 more to help the Braves to an 8-2 win over the Marlins.
