Brewers' Wright stymies Reds

Posted: Sunday, April 08, 2001

MILWAUKEE -- Jamey Wright held Cincinnati hitless until the seventh inning and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Reds 6-1 Saturday in the first day game at Miller Park.

Aaron Boone ended Wright's no-hit bid with one out in the seventh when he lined a ball up the middle that second baseman Ronnie Belliard couldn't reach for a single.

Wright (1-1) left after giving up a leadoff homer to Jason LaRue in the eighth, which kept the Reds from being shut out for the first time since 1999.

Expos 10, Mets 0

MONTREAL -- Lee Stevens homered twice and had a career-high six RBIs while Javier Vazquez pitched seven shutout innings as the Montreal Expos romped over the New York Mets.

Stevens, who went 3-for-4, hit an RBI single in the second off Steve Trachsel (0-1). He drove a two-run shot in the fourth and added a three-run homer off the Mets newcomer in the fifth.

Making his second start of the season, Vazquez (1-0) held New York to four hits -- two by Japanese rookie Tsuyoshi Shinjo -- and didn't issue a walk while striking out nine.

Padres 14, Rockies 10

DENVER -- Phil Nevin's three-run homer in the sixth inning gave San Diego the lead for good, and the Padres posted a 14-10 seesaw victory over the Colorado Rockies.

The Padres erupted for five runs in both the fourth and sixth innings off Mike Hampton. The Rockies' ace helped himself with his first career home run.

Hampton went five-plus innings, surrendering 11 hits and nine runs, six of them earned.

Cubs 8, Phillies 4

PHILADELPHIA -- Julio Zuleta drove in five runs and Sammy Sosa hit his first homer of the season as the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies.

Bill Mueller also homered as the Cubs won their third straight game.

Chicago's bullpen pitched four scoreless innings. The Phillies loaded the bases with one out in the ninth, but Kyle Farnsworth struck out pinch-hitter Gary Bennett and Travis Lee.

Pirates 5, Astros 3

HOUSTON -- Pat Meares homered and drove in three runs to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates over Houston for their first win at Enron Field.

The Astros were the last unbeaten team in the NL, having won their first four games.

Jason Kendall also homered as the Pirates ended their 0-8 skid at Enron. They lost all seven games at Houston last year and fell Friday night to the Astros.

Cardinals 8, Diamondbacks 4

PHOENIX -- J.D. Drew hit a two-run home run and Darryl Kile got his first victory as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Cardinals, swept at Colorado to open the season, go for a three-game sweep of Arizona on Sunday with Rick Ankiel on the mound against the Diamondbacks' Randy Johnson.

Luis Gonzalez hit his NL-leading fifth home run of the season, a three-run shot for Arizona.

Marlins 8, Braves 0

MIAMI -- Ryan Dempster pitched around five walks in six shutout innings, Charles Johnson snapped a slump with three RBIs, and the Florida Marlins beat the Atlanta Braves.

With an 0-4 start, matching the worst start in franchise history, the Marlins needed a break -- and got one in the first inning. Mike Lowell's two-out popup deflected off Gold Glove center fielder Andruw Jones' glove for a single, allowing two runs to score.

Dodgers 10, Giants 4

LOS ANGELES -- Shawn Green and Eric Karros gave Los Angeles back-to-back homers in three consecutive games, and Mark Grudzielanek connected in his third straight for the Dodgers.

Chan Ho Park (2-0) shrugged off a two-run homer by Russ Davis in the second inning and stood back as his teammates homered five times for the second night in a row, after bombing the Giants and Shawn Estes 10-1 Friday night.
