Cardinals 5, Cubs 2

Rookie Shelby Miller pitched five shutout innings and Yadier Molina had a two-run double to lead St. Louis past visiting Chicago. Miller, who had to wait out a rain delay of 1 hour, 59 minutes to start the game, left due to cramping in his right leg. Edward Mujica gave up a homer to Darwin Barney with two outs in the ninth, but still earned his 20th save in 20 opportunities.

Marlins 3, D-backs 2

Giancarlo Stanton drove in all three Miami runs with a pair of homers in a win over Arizona in Phoenix. Patrick Corbin, trying to become the first left-handed starter in 35 years to go 10-0, allowed two hits through eight innings but gave up a soaring, two-run homer to left by Stanton that tied the game at 2 in the sixth. Stanton’s line-drive home run to right off Heath Bell in the ninth put Miami ahead for the first time. Paul Goldschmidt drove in both Arizona runs with a homer and a single.

Braves 2, Mets 1

Freddie Freeman hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning off Dillon Gee, giving Atlanta a stunning victory over visiting New York in a game that was delayed nearly four hours by rain. Gee totally shut down the Braves until the ninth, when Justin Upton singled with one out before Freeman launched a towering drive into the right-field seats. Tim Hudson worked seven innings for the Braves, allowing only Gee’s RBI single with two outs in the seventh.
