MIAMI - Giancarlo Stanton and Casey McGehee hit consecutive run-scoring singles off David Carpenter during a two-run rally in the seventh inning that led the Miami Marlins over the Atlanta Braves 5-4 Thursday night for a three-game sweep of the NL East leader.

Miami has won six straight home games for the first time at Marlins Park, which opened in 2012. It is the longest home winning streak for the team since the Marlins won eight in a row from June 20 to July 1, 2009.

With the Marlins trailing 4-3, pinch-hitter Reed Johnson singled off Ian Thomas (1-1) leading off the seventh and took second on Christian Yelich's single. Derek Dietrich lined out, and Carpenter relieved and gave up the back-to-back hits.

Mike Dunn (3-3) pitched a hitless seventh, and Steve Cishek got four outs for his sixth save.

REDS 8, BREWERS 3

CINCINNATI (AP) — Brayan Pena's second career pinch-homer started Cincinnati's five-run, eighth-inning rally.

Tucker Barnhart led off the fifth with his first career homer and Todd Frazier added a two-run drive in the sixth off Marco Estrada, who gave up six hits and four walks in six innings.

Pena had homered during a 9-4 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night. He hit for Bailey with the score tied at 3 in the eighth and connected on the first pitch from Jim Henderson (2-1) for a two-run homer.

Homer Bailey (2-2) allowed eight hits in a season-high eight innings.

ROCKIES 7, METS 4

DENVER (AP) — Carlos Gonzalez homered before leaving with a finger injury, Juan Nicasio pitched seven scoreless innings and drove in three runs, and Colorado beat New York.

Corey Dickerson had three hits, including an RBI triple and Nolan Arenado singled leading off the third to extend the majors' longest active streak to 21 games. He's tied for the fourth-longest hitting streak in Rockies team history.

Gonzalez connected for his sixth home run of the season in the first inning, driving a 3-2 offering from Bartolo Colon (2-4) off the right-centre field facing just below the second deck. Gonzalez was lifted in the fourth inning, replaced by pinch hitter Brandon Barnes, because of what the team said was a bruised left index finger. His playing status was listed as day to day.

Nicasio (3-1) got the win.
