.Jason Hammel threw seven innings
BALTIMORE -- The Arizona Diamondbacks got another encouraging start from one of their young pitchers.The offense, however, came up short once again.Hyun Soo Kim hit his fifth home run, a two-run shot in the second inning off Braden Shipley, and the Baltimore Orioles completed a three-game sweep of Arizona with a 2-1 victory Sunday.The Diamondbacks scored just four runs over the weekend. Arizona has been swept 13 times this season, including six on the road.It was a good game today, Arizona manager Chip Hale said. They were fighting their hearts out like some of the teams weve been playing and our guys matched it. Shipley made one bad pitch and they took advantage of it to get a two-run homer.Shipley (4-5) allowed two runs on four hits with six strikeouts over six innings in his 10th career start. Arizona was 1 for 7 with runners in scoring position.Orioles rookie Dylan Bundy (10-6) allowed a run on three hits with five strikeouts over five innings. Bundy hasnt gone past the sixth inning in his past six starts.Zach Britton picked up his American League-leading 46th save in as many chances. Manny Machado went 2 for 4 for his team-high 54th multi-hit game.The Orioles took a 2-0 lead on Kims drive off Shipley. Shipley has given up 13 homers in 12 appearances this season.Thats on me, Shipley said. I take this loss on my shoulders. Im not always going to be perfect, obviously, thats how baseball is. (Kim) did a good job with it. I have to live with it.The Diamondbacks pulled within a run off Bundy in the third on an RBI single by Paul Goldschmidt. Baltimore reliever Mychal Givens entered in the sixth and held the Diamondbacks hitless over two innings.Its kind of frustrating late in the year, Arizona shortstop Chris Owings said. Shipley threw the ball really well today and its tough not getting some runs for him.Baltimore is 1 1/2 games ahead of Detroit for the second AL wild card and remained 1 1/2 games behind Toronto for the top spot. The Orioles begin a crucial three-game series at the Blue Jays on Tuesday.Weve been playing meaningful games in September for awhile now, so its not anything new to us, Britton said. Weve been to the postseason a few times now, so I think everyone knows how to treat these next few games. Just go out and be prepared but at the same time you cant press any more so than you would in the first month of the season.HITTING MACHINEDiamondbacks second baseman Jean Segura went 1 for 3 and has 193 hits on the season, most in the National League. He is also the first Diamondbacks player to hit 40 doubles in a season since Gerardo Parra hit 43 in 2013.TRAINERS ROOMDiamondbacks: RHP Rubby De La Rosa (right elbow inflammation) has been shut down for the season. He will see a specialist Monday in Florida.Orioles: OF Joey Rickard might not need surgery for his injured thumb, but the team will have a definitive plan to make sure he is ready for spring training, manager Buck Showalter said.UP NEXTDiamondbacks: Archie Bradley (7-9, 5.02 ERA) opens the four-game series against the NL East champion Washington Nationals. Bradley is seeking his fourth win in six starts.Orioles: Right-hander Kevin Gausman (8-11, 4.21 ERA) is expected to start the series opener against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

CHICAGO -- The Milwaukee Brewers dropped both ends of a doubleheader and lost two key players -- slugger Ryan Braun and pitcher Chase Anderson -- with injuries in the nightcap. They were thankful things werent worse.Braun and Anderson both appear to have escaped serious injury. That was about the only thing to go Milwaukees way on Tuesday.Jason Hammel threw seven innings of two-hit ball, Anthony Rizzo jumped onto a wall to make a remarkable catch of a foul ball and the Chicago Cubs beat the banged-up Brewers 4-1 to sweep a day-night doubleheader.Milwaukee was most concerned about Braun, who slid hard into the side wall in left field. He sprained his left knee and ankle, but there doesnt appear to be any structural damage.I think all things considered, it was probably the best-case scenario, Braun said. Well know more tomorrow. Well see how swollen it is tomorrow. If its real swollen, we might end up getting an MRI, but the MCL, ACCL and all that stuff is intact, so thats a good thing.ddddddddddddnderson, who took a no-hitter into the eighth inning in his previous start against Chicago, exited after just two batters when he was hit in the left quadriceps with a liner off the bat of Kris Bryant.Stiff and sore, Anderson said when asked how he felt afterward. Theres really not too much pain. Luckily, it got all the muscle, so its just trying to get the swelling to go down.That was the extent of the good news for the Brewers, who managed just one run and nine hits in the two games. They have dropped seven of 10.In addition, Brewers right-hander?Michael Blazek went on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm strain.He was really just fatigued, Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said.The Associated Press contributed to this report.
