MIAMI: Juan Pierre scored the winning run on a wild pitch as Miami Marlins rallied in the bottom of the ninth to hand visiting New York Mets their sixth straight loss 2-1.
Donovan Solano singled home Chris Coghlan to tie the game 1-1 before reliever Brandon Lyon uncorked a pitch in the dirt as the Marlins won their third straight.
Mets starter Jeremy Hefner (0-3) allowed only four hits and struck out a career-high eight before leaving after facing three batters in the ninth, taking the tough-luck loss.
Cardinals 2 Reds 1: Matt Holliday hit a two-run homer and Jaime Garcia pitched eight solid innings as hosts St. Louis evened the three-game series.
Choo Shin-soo had an RBI double for the Reds in the fifth before Holliday answered in the sixth. Carlos Beltran recorded three hits and scored a run while Edward Mujica struck out the side in order in the ninth inning as the Cardinals ended their three-game losing streak.
Braves 8 Nationals 1: Tim Hudson earned his 200th career victory and slugged his third career homer, and Freddie Freeman drove in three runs, as hosts Atlanta beat Washington for the ninth consecutive time.
Hudson (3-1) became the 113th pitcher in major-league history to reach 200 victories, allowing one run on three hits in seven innings. He took Washington reliever Zach Duke deep to right leading off the fifth.
Giants 2 Diamondbacks 1: Pablo Sandoval blasted a two-run homer in the ninth off J.J. Putz and visiting San Francisco rallied to win their second straight game against Arizona.
Trevor Cahill needed just 88 pitches to get through eight shutout innings, but was pulled after Angel Pagan led off the ninth with a single. Putz (2-1) replaced Cahill and Sandoval crushed an 0-1 offering into the right field bleachers.
Josh Wilson broke a scoreless tie with a leadoff homer in the eighth inning off Santiago Casilla, spoiling an impressive outing by Giants starter Madison Bumgarner.
Brewers 12 Pirates 8: Rickie Weeks ended a long dry spell with three hits — including a three-run homer — and drove in a career-high five runs as hosts Milwaukee defeated Pittsburgh for the ninth consecutive time.
Weeks recorded his first home run and multi-hit game since April 3 and scored three times for the Brewers, who also saw Jean Segura and Yuniesky Betancourt go deep for the second straight game. Tom Gorzelanny (1-0) pitched a scoreless seventh for his first victory with Milwaukee.
Padres 13 Cubs 7: Yonder Alonso, Carlos Quentin and Nick Hundley each had a home run as visiting San Diego racked up a season-high run total while evening the series at a game apiece.
