     EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Oregon sophomore Aaron Wise closed with a 1-over 71 on Monday to win the NCAA individual title by two shots.
     Wise, who is turning pro after the NCAA ends at Eugene Country Club, is the first Duck to win the NCAA title. He also became the first player from the host school to win a national championship since Gary Hallberg at Wake Forest in 1979.
     Rico Hoey of Southern California shot 69 to finish second, while Matthias Schwab of Vanderbilt was alone in third.
     The Ducks, who were No. 26 in the latest NCAA poll, were among eight teams which advanced to match play to decide the team title. Top-ranked Texas enters match play as the No. 1 seed, followed by Illinois and defending champion LSU. Vanderbilt tied for fourth with USC, the runner-up a year ago. Oregon was No. 6, while South Carolina and Oklahoma grabbed the last two spots.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Matt Carpenter had four hits and scored three times, Carlos Martinez pitched eight innings and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-0 on Monday.

Martinez (5-5) allowed five singles, walked one and struck out eight, rebounding nicely after having allowed at least four runs in each of his three previous starts. Entering Monday, Martinez had a 1.34 ERA in 15 career games, including four starts, against Milwaukee. 

Carpenter sparked the offense from the leadoff spot. He even scored from second in the seventh after catcher Jonathan Lucroy lost track of a wild pitch by Jhan Marinez that trickled to the backstop. 

The Cardinals built a 3-0 lead after three innings, with the lineup's top four hitters accounting for 10 of the team's 12 hits on the day.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Stephen Strasburg won his 12th consecutive decision dating to last season and Jayson Werth connected for a pinch-hit grand slam to help the Washington Nationals close out the season series against the St. Louis Cardinals with a 10-2 win on Sunday.

Wilson Ramos had three hits, including a two-run homer, and drove in four runs. Bryce Harper hit an RBI single during Washington's three-run fourth inning off Michael Wacha (2-6).

Strasburg (9-0) pitched six innings of one-run ball as Washington salvaged a split of the four-game series. The right-hander improved to 12-0 in 15 starts since losing to the Mets on Sept. 9, and the Nationals have won all 15 of those games.

CHICAGO (AP) - Ben Zobrist hit a three-run homer, John Lackey pitched seven solid innings and the Chicago Cubs completed a sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies with a 7-2 victory Sunday.

Miguel Montero added a solo homer and drove in two runs as the Cubs (34-14) won their fifth straight and became the first team this season to get to 20 games over .500.

Zobrist's two-out drive to right off Vince Velasquez (5-2) made it 5-0 in the third. It extended Zobrist's hitting streak to 15 games and put the Cubs on the way to their sixth series sweep.

CHICAGO (AP) - Kyle Hendricks pitched a five-hitter for his second career complete game, Dexter Fowler hit a leadoff homer and the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-1 on Saturday.
Hendricks (3-4) struck out seven and walked none. He was in line for his second career shutout before giving up a run in the ninth.
Fowler sparked a two-run first against Jerad Eickhoff (2-7) with his sixth home run. The Cubs have won four in a row.
The Phillies lost for the sixth time in eight games.
