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.
