Posted: Thursday, August 02, 2001

ST LOUIS -- Mark McGwire tied Harmon Killebrew for fifth place on the career home run list with No. 573 and the St. Louis Cardinals ended Greg Maddux's 10-game winning streak, beating the Atlanta Braves 4-0 Wednesday night.

Darryl Kile (11-7) scattered eight hits over eight innings, striking out eight and walking one. Dave Veres pitched the ninth.

Mets 8, Astros 2

HOUSTON -- Newcomer Matt Lawton hit a tiebreaking single in the 10th inning and Edgardo Alfonzo followed with a three-run homer to lead New York.

Pinch-hitter Lenny Harris hit a one-out single in the 10th off Mike Jackson (2-2) and went to third on Tsuyoshi Shinjo's single.

Marlins 5, Brewers 4

MILWAUKEE -- Derrek Lee doubled to start a three-run rally in the ninth inning, then hit an RBI double with two outs in the 10th to lift Florida over Milwaukee.

Giants 3, Pirates 1

SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds hit his major league-leading 46th homer, and Jason Schmidt pitched one-hit ball for seven innings against the team that just traded him as San Francisco beat Pittsburgh.

The Giants won their seventh straight game with an excellent debut from Schmidt (7-6), who was traded from Pittsburgh to San Francisco on Monday. He faced just 22 batters -- one over the minimum -- and struck out eight, one shy of his season high.

Padres 4, Cubs 3

SAN DIEGO -- Tony Gwynn hit an RBI double and San Diego rallied with three unearned runs in the seventh inning to beat Chicago.

The Cubs committed two errors in the seventh, and the stunning turn in momentum gave the win to Bobby Jones (7-13), who seemed to be on his way to another tough loss.

Reds 10, Dodgers 5

LOS ANGELES -- Dmitri Young and Todd Walker each had three RBIs and three hits and Ken Griffey Jr. homered as Cincinnati won its fifth straight.

Phillies 8, Rockies 1

DENVER -- Randy Wolf (6-10) pitched four-hit ball and Philadelphia ended a four-game losing streak, beating Colorado in a game stopped in the seventh inning because of rain.

The start at Coors Field was delayed 1 hour, 23 minutes by rain. The game was called two pitches into the seventh after a wait of 1 hour, 35 minutes.

Doug Glanville, who had been on a 5-for-47 slump, had three hits, including a homer. Todd Pratt hit a three-run homer and Pat Burrell also connected for the Phillies.

The Phillies tagged Denny Neagle (6-6) for eight runs and 10 hits in 4 1-3 innings.
