Phils wipe out five-run deficit vs. Nationals

Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA ó Jesus Colome walked Jayson Werth to force in the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning, giving the Philadelphia Phillies an 8-7 victory over the Washington Nationals on Thursday.
Jimmy Rollins beat out an infield hit and went from first to third on a sacrifice bunt to trigger the winning rally. After two intentional walks loaded the bases, Rollins scored on Werthís walk.
The defending NL East champions overcame a 5-0, first-inning deficit to avoid opening the season with a three-game sweep at home for the third straight year.
 Cubs 6, Brewers 3
CHICAGO ó Former closer Ryan Dempster was a winner in his return to the rotation, Aramis Ramirez homered and Alfonso Soriano had two RBIs for the Cubs.
Moved back to the leadoff spot after hitting second the first two games, Soriano drew a bases-loaded walk in the fourth to force in the go-ahead run and added an RBI single in the sixth to snap a season-starting 0-for-11 slump.
Reds 3, Diamondbacks 2
CINCINNATI  ó Johnny Cueto allowed nothing more than Justin Uptonís solo homer in seven innings, striking out 10 in an overpowering debut for Cincinnati.
Pitching in a steady rain, the 22-year-old right-hander struck out eight of his first 13 batters. His 10 strikeouts were the most by a Reds pitcher in his big league debut since 1900, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Cardinals 3, Rockies 0
ST. LOUIS ó Brad Thompson had a career-high six strikeouts in 62/3 innings to lead the Cardinals to the win.
St. Louis took two of three from the defending NL champions, who totaled five runs in the series. Colorado was 3-for-25 with runners in scoring position, two of the hits coming in the finale, but Todd Helton was thrown out at the plate in the sixth.
Padres 3, Astros 2
SAN DIEGO  ó Trevor Hoffman kept up his seesaw season when he earned the save in San Diegoís victory over Houston.
It was Hoffmanís second save in three chances, extending his big league record to 526.
Enrique Gonzalez (1-0) got the win and Kevin Kouzmanoff hit a two-run homer for the Padres.
