He did it! The streak is over!

Newcombe was trying to avoid being the first starter to go 0-10 and he shut down the Monkey lineup to do it. Ralph Garr was 2 for 4 with two doubles and a RBI, while Jason Kipnis added two hits and a RBI in the win.

In the other game, Nolan Arenado had a grand slam, while Albert Pujols added three hits and three runs as the Fort Lauderdale Flash beat the Golden Glovers 11-10 to win their seventh in a row.

Pete Rose and Mike Trout each added two hits and three runs scored, while Steve Howe got the win in relief. Willie McCovey was 2 for 4 with a home run and three RBI for the Glovers.
