CHICAGO — Greg Maddux struck out 10 in his best outing of the season, and Corey Patterson hit two solo homers to lead the Chicago Cubs over the New York Mets 7-0 Tuesday night.

The Cubs won for only the second time in 10 games and homered in four straight innings, with Jason Dubois adding a solo shot and Jeromy Burnitz hitting a two-run drive.

Marlins 6, Astros 2

MIAMI — Mike Lowell snapped a slump and broke a tie with a two-run double, and Florida scored five times in the eighth inning to beat Houston.

Florida trailed 2-1 entering the eighth, but Carlos Delgado tied the score with a home run off Russ Springer (0-2). Miguel Cabrera reached on an infield single, and Paul Lo Duca doubled. Jeff Conine was intentionally walked to load the bases.

Reds 5, Padres 1

CINCINNATI — Sean Casey drove in three runs with a pair of doubles, and Cincinnati's besieged bullpen ended a long stretch of miserable performances by preserving a victory over San Diego.

Brewers 8, Phillies 5

MILWAUKEE — Brady Clark ignited a four-run sixth inning with his third hit of the game and the Brewers rallied past the Phillies.

Clark had three singles. His first one led to a three-run rally in the first, his second drove in a run an inning later and his third drove in Damian Miller from third to erase a 5-4 deficit in the sixth.

Braves 9, Rockies 5

DENVER — Johnny Estrada's two-run double sparked a six-run first inning for the Braves, who snapped Colorado's two-game winning streak.

Estrada, Ryan Langerhans, Raul Mondesi and pitcher John Thomson all had two-out RBIs in the first against Jason Jennings (1-4) to help Atlanta build the big lead en route to its sixth win in seven games.

Dodgers 9, Cardinals 8

ST. LOUIS — Hee-Seop Choi hit a go-ahead, three-run homer after he withstood a collision that forced Scott Rolen from the game with a sprained left shoulder in the Dodgers' victory.

Jeff Kent also homered and Cesar Izturis had two hits and two RBIs, helping the Dodgers end a six-game losing streak at Busch Stadium, counting the first round of the postseason last year.

Pirates 5, Giants 2

SAN FRANCISCO — Jason Bay hit a three-run homer and Jose Castillo and Humberto Cota also connected for the Pirates.

Dave Williams (3-3) pitched six strong innings to win his second straight following a three-start losing streak and avenge a loss to the Giants on April 30.

Bay, last season's NL Rookie of the Year, hit his sixth homer of the year on a 3-1 pitch from Jim Brower (1-1) in the sixth. It gave him a nine-game hitting streak and spoiled a strong spot start by Jeff Fassero.

Jose Mesa worked the ninth for his 12th save this year and 22nd straight dating to last season.

Diamondbacks 3, Nationals 2

PHOENIX — Troy Glaus brought Arizona from behind with a three-run homer in the sixth inning, and the Diamondbacks snapped their 10-game losing streak against the Washington franchise.

Glaus' NL-leading 10th homer was only the second hit allowed by Tony Armas Jr., who made his 2005 debut after coming off the disabled list the day before.

Armas (0-1), winless in eight starts since beating Florida 2-1 on July 23, allowed three runs, three hits and three walks in 5 2-3 innings.

Brad Wilkerson drove in two runs with his 13th double for the Nationals, who twice failed to score after loading the bases against starter Shawn Estes (3-3). They stranded 13 runners, matching a season high, and left the bases loaded three times in all.
