National League

• Cardinals 3, Rockies 0: In St. Louis, Adam Wainwright took a no-hit bid into the eighth inning and wound up with a two-hitter for St. Louis. Colorado was hitless in 49 consecutive at-bats before Nolan Arenado lined a clean hit to center field with one out in the eighth. The Rockies led off Friday's game with a single, then failed to put a runner on until Todd Helton walked in the fifth Saturday. The 49 at-bats is the longest hitless stretch since 50, set by the Dodgers in 1981.

• Dodgers 7, Marlins 1: In Los Angeles, Andre Ethier had a pair of doubles among his season-high four hits, Dee Gordon hit a rare home run and the Dodgers backed Hyun-Jin Ryu (4-2) to snap an eight-game losing skid with a win over Miami.

• Giants 10, Braves 1: In San Francisco, Madison Bumgarner struck out a season-high 11 over seven innings, and Gregor Blanco drove in four runs as the Giants routed Atlanta.

• Cubs 8, Nationals 2: In Washingon, Stephen Strasburg fell apart after one of third baseman Ryan Zimmerman's two errors and wound up dropping his fifth consecutive decision, Chicago's Edwin Jackson (1-5), who left Washington as a free agent, worked into the sixth inning and hit a two-run double.

• Reds 13, Brewers 7: In Cincinnati, Jay Bruce homered his first time up, then doubled twice during a seven-run burst as the Reds delighted a sellout crowd. Six different Reds drove in two runs each, including starting pitcher Mat Latos (4-0).

• Pirates 11, Mets 2: In New York, Francisco Liriano struck out nine and pitched into the sixth inning to win his debut with Pittsburgh as Jordy Mercer homered twice.

American League

• Yankees 3, Royals 2: In Kansas City, Mo., Vernon Wells hit a go-ahead two-run homer, then made a long running catch that preserved win for Andy Pettitte (4-2) and New York. Pettitte, 40, gave up five hits, struck out seven and improved to 15-3 in his career against the Royals.

• Blue Jays 3, Red Sox 2: In Boston, Adam Lind hit a tiebreaking homer off Boston closer Junichi Tazawa leading off the ninth inning to give Toronto only its fifth win in 16 games. Toronto's Mark Buehrle had outdueled Clay Buchholz, leading 2-0, before the Red Sox rallied.

• Rangers 8, Astros 7: In Houston, Adrian Beltre, Nelson Cruz and Lance Berkman all homered to back up another solid outing by Yu Darvish, and Texas held on to win. Darvish (6-1) yielded three hits and three runs in seven innings.

• Twins 8, Orioles 5: In Minneapolis, Ryan Doumit homered, Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau each had three hits for the Twins. Baltimore lost for just the second time in seven games.
