Interleague

Orioles 4, Pirates 3: At Pittsburgh, Rafael Palmeiro’s tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth helped Baltimore come back after they wasted a three-run lead, and Miguel Tejada and B.J. Surhoff homered in a win over the Pirates.

Angels 4, Braves 2: At Atlanta, Darin Erstad barreled over catcher Johnny Estrada to score on Garret Anderson’s go-ahead double, and Los Angeles beat the Braves in the first meeting between the teams. John Smoltz retired his first 14 batters and carried a 2-1 lead into the eighth.

Blue Jays 4, Cubs 1: At Chicago, Gustavo Chacin pitched seven shutout innings and Reed Johnson hit a three-run homer, as Toronto beat the Cubs, winning in its first trip to Wrigley Field. Chacin (6-4) won a matchup of rookie left-handers, outpitching John Koronka (1-1). Chacin allowed five hits, struck out six and was backed by two double plays.

Cardinals 7, Red Sox 1: At St. Louis, Matt Morris improved to 7-0 with his first complete game of the season and contributed a squeeze bunt to help the Cardinals beat Boston in the teams’ first meeting since last year’s World Series. David Eckstein had three RBIs and eighth-place hitter Yadier Molina had two.

Brewers 4, Yankees 3: Randy Johnson and New York were no better in Milwaukee. Geoff Jenkins ran down Derek Jeter’s drive in the right-field corner for the final out, preserving the Brewers’ victory and ruining the Yankees’ first trip to Milwaukee since 1997.

White Sox 9, Rockies 3: At Denver, Freddy Garcia retired 22 straight Colorado batters after a rough start to help Chicago to a rout of Colorado. In the first inning, Garcia (6-3) gave up a single, then hit Todd Helton with a pitch to bring up Brad Hawpe with two outs. Hawpe sent a 3-1 pitch over the center-field fence to put the Rockies up 3-2. But Garcia didn’t allow another baserunner after that.

Dodgers 5, Tigers 3: At Los Angeles, Jeff Kent finally made an out after he had seven straight hits, then bounced back to hit a three-run homer and drive in four runs in the Dodgers’ victory over Detroit. The shot over the left-field fence was Kent’s 12th home run. Jason Repko also homered in the Dodgers third straight win. Eric Gagne pitched the ninth for his sixth save in as many chances.

National League

Diamondbacks 10, Phillies 8: At Philadelphia, Shawn Green put an emphatic end to the Phillies’ six-game winning streak, driving in four runs in an Arizona victory. The Diamondbacks scored five times in the first inning off Cory Lidle (5-4) and snapped a five-game losing streak – improving to 15-15 on the road.
