San Diego 5, at Milwaukee 2: Will Venable hit the first home run of his career for the Padres. Nick Hundley and Luis Rodriguez each drove in two runs for San Diego, which had lost nine straight on the road and is tied with Washington and Seattle for the fewest wins in the majors. The Brewers lost their fourth game in a row.

at Atlanta 2, Washington 0: James Parr tossed six sharp innings for the Braves in his major league debut. Mike Gonzalez, who completed the five-hitter, has converted all nine of his save opportunities this season and 39 in a row overall, the longest current streak in the major leagues, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

at Cincinnati 8, Pittsburgh 6: Joey Votto hit a solo homer and a tiebreaking, bases-loaded single in the eighth inning to complete the Reds' rally from a five-run deficit. The Pirates gave up three runs in the eighth and lost for the 11th time in their last 13 games. Nick Masset, who came to the Reds in the trade that sent Ken Griffey Jr. to the White Sox, got the victory, and Francisco Cordero pitched out of a threat in the ninth for his 27th save in 33 chances.
