Cincinnati 5, Tampa Bay 0: Jonny Gomes hit a towering homer, and Mike Leake pitched six strong innings in a Reds' victory.
L.A. Dodgers 15, Minnesota 0: The Dodgers pounded out 24 hits, including three homers, while the Twins were held to four hits.
Cleveland at Arizona: Both of these teams were in the basement a year ago. Now they are both challenging for the lead in their respective divisions.
Kansas City at San Diego: The Royals haven't won three in a row since early May. They had the chance to do that in Monday's game with the Padres. Kansas City has never won in Petco Park.
Washington at L.A. Angels: Davey Johnson managed his first game with the Nationals Monday night. He hoped to move the Nats three games over .500.
Atlanta at Seattle: The Braves move to Seattle after losing to the Padres in San Diego Sunday night. They need more offense than Sunday's two hits.

Chicago Cubs 7, Colorado 3: Aramis Ramirez hit a two-run homer in the first, doubled and scored in the fifth and homered again to lead off the seventh.
Around the horn
Cleveland Indians: Have promoted rookie third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall from the minors, hoping to spark their stagnant offense. The 22-year-old Chisenhall is considered the top prospect in the organization.
