MLB ROUNDUP | Sunday's other games
Mets 4, Yankees 3
NEW YORK -- Billy Wagner bounced back from a dreadful performance and the Mets got consecutive home runs from Carlos Delgado and David Wright to edge the Yankees in their Subway Series finale. Tom Glavine won his fifth straight start by pitching six innings and Wright hit a mammoth shot out of Shea Stadium, helping the Mets take two of three from their crosstown rivals. All three games were decided by one run. Derek Jeter hit a two-run single for the Yankees, who rallied from a 4-0 deficit in the ninth against Wagner on Saturday and won 5-4 in 11 innings. But Mets manager Willie Randolph went right back to Wagner -- as he said he would -- and the All-Star closer worked out of a jam for his ninth save in 12 chances.
Devils Rays 3, Marlins 0
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Scott Kazmir allowed four hits and matched a career-high with 11 strikeouts in eight innings, leading Tampa Bay over Dontrelle Willis and Florida. Kazmir (7-2) held the Marlins to three singles and Miguel Cabrera's fourth-inning double en route to a career-best fifth straight win. At 22, he's the youngest major league pitcher to win seven games this early in a season since Fernando Valenzuela in 1981. He walked one and hit a batter. Tyler Walker worked the ninth for his eighth save. Jonny Gomes keyed a three-run fifth inning with a RBI triple off Willis (1-5), who allowed eight hits in his first complete game of the season. Ty Wigginton and Greg Norton also drove runs for the Devil Rays, who swept the weekend series and have won a season-high four straight games. The Marlins have lost seven in a row, their longest skid since losing eight straight from July 7-18, 2002.
Tigers 1, Reds 0
DETROIT -- Placido Polanco's pinch-hit single in the eighth inning broke a scoreless tie, and Nate Robertson tossed 71/3 innings to lead the host Tigers. Robertson struck out seven, walked five and allowed three hits. Fernando Rodney (3-1) and Todd Jones combined to throw 12/3 hitless innings with Jones getting his 13th save. Jones set a franchise record with his 155th save with the Tigers, moving one ahead of Mike Henneman. Detroit has won nine of 10. Reds starter Aaron Harang (5-3) pitched eight innings for his third career complete game.
Nationals 3, Orioles 1
WASHINGTON -- Livan Hernandez snapped a seven-start winless streak and lifted Washington over Baltimore. Hernandez (2-5) limited Baltimore to one run in seven innings, despite giving up four walks and six hits, though all were singles. He hadn't earned a victory since April 8 at Houston, his second start of the season. The burly right-hander helped himself by driving in a run with a sacrifice bunt in the fourth, when Washington scored twice off Orioles starter Bruce Chen (0-5). Chen gave up three runs and seven hits over four innings. Mike Stanton pitched a perfect eighth for the Nationals, and Chad Cordero worked the ninth for his fifth save. That sealed a rare series victory for Washington, which won the last two games of its "Battle of the Beltway" set against Baltimore.
Cardinals 10, Royals 3
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Albert Pujols homered in his third straight game and St. Louis completed a three-game sweep, sending Kansas City (10-31) to its ninth straight loss. Chris Duncan, recalled from Triple-A Memphis Sunday, and Hector Luna homered in the fifth off Scott Elarton (0-5).
Phillies 10, Red Sox 5
PHILADELPHIA -- Bobby Abreu drove in five runs to help Philadelphia snap a five-game losing streak. Abreu singled, tripled and homered and Ryan Howard also hit a shot for the Phillies. Kevin Youkilis and Mike Lowell homered for the Red Sox.
Astros 5, Rangers 0
HOUSTON -- Taylor Buchholz pitched a five-hitter for his first career shutout. Buchholz (3-3) walked none and struck out a career-high six in his first career complete game. The Astros took two of three from the Rangers, but still have lost 11 of 16 games. Morgan Ensberg and Jason Lane provided all the offense Buchholz would need, each hitting two-run homers.
Brewers 5, Twins 3
MILWAUKEE -- Carlos Lee's two-run double keyed a four-run seventh inning to lift Milwaukee. Chris Capuano (5-3) won for the first time in four starts. Derrick Turnbow pitched the ninth for his 14th save. The Brewers rallied against reliever Jesse Crain (0-2), who gave up four runs while only getting one out.
Cubs 7, White Sox 4
CHICAGO -- Michael Barrett, booed for his punch that set off a melee the day before, delivered a game-tying triple, and Jacque Jones followed with a two-run homer in the eighth as the Cubs averted a sweep. Carlos Zambrano (3-2) got the win, allowing four hits in seven innings, including two homers to Paul Konerko. Ryan Dempster pitched the ninth for his eighth save. Aramis Ramirez homered twice.
Rockies 5, Blue Jays 3
DENVER -- Garrett Atkins drove in three runs with a bases-loaded double and Josh Fogg snapped a six-game winless streak as Colorado completed a three-game sweep. Colorado (25-19) matched its best start after 44 games. Fogg (3-2), who hadn't won since April 13, allowed three runs and seven hits in 52/3 innings. Brian Fuentes worked the ninth for his 10th save. Ted Lilly (4-4) allowed five runs and six hits in 12/3 innings for the Blue Jays, who were swept for the first time this year.
Mariners 10, Padres 8
SEATTLE -- Raul Ibanez and Carl Everett homered during an eight-run second inning to help Seattle finish a weekend sweep. Chan Ho Park (2-2) entered having allowed one earned run in 22 innings but gave up 10 runs to Seattle in 51/3 innings, the most earned runs he had allowed since June 21, 1998. Felix Hernandez (3-5), the Mariners' 2005 rookie phenom, allowed a career-high seven earned runs, one start after allowing 10 runs and five earned at Oakland. He managed to get the win, and J.J. Putz earned his sixth save.
Dodgers 7, Angels 0
LOS ANGELES -- Derek Lowe allowed three hits in seven shutout innings for his first win since April 13 and Andre Ethier hit a three-run homer as the Dodgers completed a sweep of the three-game series. Lowe (2-3) threw 118 pitches before being lifted for a pinch hitter. The 32-year-old right-hander walked three, struck out seven and didn't allow a hit after Garret Anderson's single in the third, retiring 13 of the last 15 batters he faced.
Braves 2, Diamondbacks 1
PHOENIX -- Tim Hudson pitched eight scoreless innings to help Atlanta beat Arizona. Hudson (4-3) gave up six hits and three walks. He struck out five. The Diamondbacks scored a run in the ninth off Braves closer Chris Reitsma on Eric Byrnes' RBI double. Macay McBride came on to get the final out for his first save of the season.
