National League roundup
Cincinnati 14, Chicago 3: Former Texas Longhorns center fielder Drew Stubbs blasted three long home runs in by far the biggest game of his young career as the Reds clobbered the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Hot-hitting Cincinnati mashed seven home runs. Stubbs, who has 11 homers on the season, went deep in the third inning (417 feet), in the seventh (417) and in the eighth (408). He drove in five runs.
Colorado 4, San Francisco 3: The Rockies blew a three-run lead in the eighth inning, then watched Todd Helton rescue them with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the 15th. Colorado stranded 20 baserunners, including 12 from the eighth through the 14th.
St. Louis 7, Milwaukee 1: Adam Wainwright threw a five-hitter and hit a three-run double off fellow firsttime All-Star Yovani Gallardo, who left in the third inning with an oblique injury. Wainwright’s double was the big hit in a five-run third as the Cardinals capitalized on consecutive fielding errors by shortstop Alcides Escobar.
Florida 3, Atlanta 2: Second baseman Dan Uggla, left off the NL All-Star team despite huge power stats, hit a homer and drove in all three Marlins runs, Ricky Nolasco pitched seven strong innings.
Pittsburgh 8, Philadelphia 5: Garrett Jones and Delwyn Young drove in two runs each during a six-run seventh inning, and the last-place Pirates took three of four from the sagging Phillies.
New York 9, Washington 5: Jason Bay drove in four runs, Angel Pagan drove in two more for the Mets. All-Star third baseman David Wright added two hits and scored two runs for New York.
Los Angeles 3, Arizona 1: Matt Kemp hit a two-run homer off reliever Aaron Heilman in the eighth inning to give the Dodgers a 5-1 road trip.
