PHILADELPHIA -- Christian Yelich hit his major league-leading 17th and 18th homers to help Zach Davies and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 11-3 Thursday.

Yasmani Grandal and Mike Moustakas also went deep as the Brewers won their third in a row.

Davies (5-0) allowed three runs -- one earned -- and four hits in six innings.

Yelich homered in the first for a 1-0 lead off Zach Eflin (5-4) and added a solo drive off Edgar Garcia in the eighth to make it 8-3.

Rangers 16, Royals 1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Rougned Odor homered twice, Willie Calhoun went deep for the second straight day.

Joey Gallo went deep among his four hits, and Hunter Pence also homered.

Royals manager Ned Yost used utility man Chris Owings on the mound the last two innings.

Lance Lynn (5-3) allowed one run and six hits in seven innings. Homer Bailey (4-4) gave up six runs -- five earned -- eight hits and four walks in 4 1/3 innings.

Reds 4, Cubs 2

CINCINNATI -- Eugenio Suarez singled home the go-ahead run during a fifth-inning downpour and added another RBI single as the Reds pulled away from Chicago.

The Cubs came into the series on the best surge in the majors, having won or split 10 straight series. The NL Central leaders let a late lead get away Wednesday night for a 6-5, 10-inning loss. This one slipped away as the rain intensified in the bottom of the fifth.

Jose Quintana (4-3) gave up Jose Peraza's solo homer with one out, his first since April 26. After a pair of singles, Quintana threw back-to-back wild pitches that let in a run with two outs. Suarez's single made it 3-2. He added another RBI single in the seventh.

Luis Castillo (5-1) gave up two runs on two hits and a walk, all in the first inning.

Chicago's Kris Bryant walked in his first plate appearance, extending his career-best streak to 25 games reaching base safely.

Braves 10, Cardinals 2

ATLANTA -- Austin Riley went 3 for 4 and drove in a run, Julio Teheran pitched five-plus scoreless innings and Atlanta won for the fifth time in six games.

Riley, who homered in his second major league at-bat Wednesday, doubled off the top of the wall in the second inning and singled in a run in the third. He scored twice.

Teheran (3-4) allowed two hits -- a bloop single by Yadier Molina to begin the fifth and a single by Paul Goldschmidt to begin the sixth -- and drove in two runs with a sacrifice bunt in the second and a single in the third. Teheran, who has a 0.53 ERA over his last three starts, walked four and struck out four.

St. Louis starter Adam Wainwright (3-4) gave up five runs, five hits and five walks with two strikeouts in four innings. Marcel Ozuna and Matt Carpenter hit solo homers for the Cardinals.
