The Spokesman-Review

Astros 6, Marlins 1: Roger Clemens won his seventh straight decision and struck out a season-high 11 leading Houston to a win over visiting Florida. Clemens (7-0) allowed only three hits, including a solo homer to Ramon Castro, in seven innings to get his 317th win.

Cardinals 5, Braves 1: Woody Williams, an 18-game winner last year, won for the first time in seven starts this season with eight strong innings as St. Louis beat visiting Atlanta.

Dodgers 7, Cubs 3: Chicago ace Kerry Wood gave up second-inning homers to Adrian Beltre and rookie Jason Grabowski before hurting his arm, and Los Angeles beat visiting Chicago. Wood didn’t come out for the third inning because of tightness in his triceps.

Diamondbacks 9, Mets 5: Steve Finley hit a grand slam and Shea Hillenbrand went 3 for 5 with a home run and four RBIs to power Arizona past visiting New York.

Brewers 8, Expos 5 (14): Milwaukee overcame a five-run deficit in the ninth inning, and Wes Helms hit a three-run homer off T.J. Tucker in the 14th as the Brewers notched a dramatic win over visiting Montreal.

Reds 6, Padres 3: Adam Dunn tied for the major league lead with his 11th home run and Ken Griffey Jr. also connected to lead Cincinnati to a win in San Diego.

Phillies 10, Giants 4: Kevin Millwood shut down San Francisco in his first start against the Giants since no-hitting them last year, as Philadelphia got a win in San Francisco.

Pirates 15, Rockies 10 (12): Craig Wilson homered twice, drove in a career-high seven runs and had a three-run triple in the Pirates’ five-run 12th inning as Pittsburgh won in Colorado.
