The Nationals lost for the fourth time in six games.

METS 7, BRAVES 5, 10 INNINGS

David Wright hit the tying home run in the ninth inning off closer Craig Kimbrel and New York scored twice in the 10th to rally for the over Atlanta.

The Mets, who have won two in a row after dropping six straight, scored four of their first five runs on homers before taking a two-run lead off Jordan Walden (1-1) in the 10th. Walden gave up two runs while getting just two outs.

Matt Holliday and Carlos Beltran homered and Shelby Miller pitched six strong innings to propel St. Louis to victory.

Miller (4-2) gave up seven hits and a walk in six innings while striking out five.

He held Milwaukee scoreless through the first five innings before allowing a sacrifice fly by Jonathan Lucroy. Carlos Martinez, Seth Maness and Fernando Salas held the Brewers without a run over the final three innings. Martinez and Maness made their major league debuts.

The Cardinals jumped in front in the third inning on a two-out, two-run home run by Holliday off Brewers starter Kyle Lohse (1-3). Allen Craig followed with a single but was thrown out at the plate attempting to score on a double by Yadier Molina, one of three Cardinals thrown out at the plate.

REDS 6, CUBS 5

Jay Bruce had two RBIs and scored and Shin-Soo Choo drove in a run and scored twice to help Cincinnati hold off Chicago.

The Cubs scored three runs in the ninth against Reds closer Aroldis Chapman before reliever J.J. Hoover came on and struck out Darwin Barney with the bases loaded to pick up his first save.

Sergio Romo (2-2) struck out two in the top of the inning and survived Matt Kemp's nine-pitch single for the victory.

Posey connected for his first career game-winning RBI of any kind on a 3-2 pitch from Ronald Belisario (2-3), who hadn't allowed a run in his previous four appearances over six innings.

Clayton Kershaw came off the bereavement list to pitch seven impressive innings for the Dodgers only five days after the death of his father, Christopher, and 56 hours following the funeral in Texas. Kershaw allowed one run and three hits, struck out five and walked three in a 104-pitch outing.

PADRES 7, DIAMONDBACKS 6

Yonder Alonso hit a go-ahead, two-run homer off Wade Miley in the fifth inning and the Padres held on to beat the Diamondbacks for their seventh win in nine games.

With the Padres trailing 3-2, Alonso drove a 2-2 pitch from Miley (2-1) into the Jack Daniel's Old No. 7 deck in right-center, his fourth. It would have been a home run even in Petco Park's old configuration. The fences were moved in 11 feet from the home run porch in the right-field corner to the gap in an attempt to make the downtown ballpark play fairer. Jesus Guzman was aboard on a grounder.

The homer made a winner of Jason Marquis (3-2). Marquis allowed three runs and four hits in six innings, struck out five and walked five.

INTERLEAGUE

RAYS 7, ROCKIES 4, 10 INNINGS


Evan Longoria hit a tiebreaking single in the 10th inning and Kelly Johnson later added a two-run homer in the interleague game, helping Tampa Bay improve to 3-4 on their road trip after having a game in Kansas City snowed out the day before.

Desmond Jennings also had a two-run homer for the Rays.

Ben Zobrist led off the 10th with a double to left off reliever Matt Belisle (1-2), setting the stage for Longoria. Johnson provided some insurance by lining his fourth homer of the season just over the wall in right-center.

Kyle Farnsworth (1-0) earned the win by pitching a perfect ninth and Fernando Rodney picked up his fourth save in five chances, striking out Eric Young Jr. with two on to end the game.
