The NL Roundup …
CINCINNATI ó Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 594th career homer Sunday, a two-run shot that powered the Cincinnati Reds to an 8-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Griffey’s first homer of the season, a drive off Brett Myers (0-1), left him six shy of becoming the sixth player in major league history to reach 600 homers. He would join Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Willie Mays and Sammy Sosa.
Jeff Keppinger homered and drove in three runs for the Reds.
Brewers 7, Giants 0
MILWAUKEE ó Ben Sheets (1-0) struck out eight, walked none and pitched a five-hitter for his second career shutout, his first since a five-hitter against St. Louis on May 29, 2001. He retired his last 10 batters.
Ryan Braun fell a triple short of the cycle, going 3-for-5 with three RBIs and Gabe Kapler homered for the second time in as many days.
Diamondbacks 5, Rockies 2
DENVER ó Mark Reynolds hit a two-run homer in the ninth off Manny Corpas and Stephen Drew hit a tiebreaking drive against Micah Bowie (0-1) leading off a three-run 10th as the Diamondbacks completed a three-game sweep against the team that beat Arizona 4-0 in last year’s NL championship series.
Dodgers 3, Padres 2
SAN DIEGO ó Trevor Hoffman (0-2) allowed Chin-Lung Hu’s tiebreaking RBI single in the ninth inning. Baseball’s career leader with 526 saves, also lost Tuesday when he blew a save against Houston and has a 12.27 ERA in four games.
Cubs 3, Astros 2
CHICAGO ó Derrek Lee hit a tiebreaking homer against Oscar Villarreal (0-2) in the seventh, Lee’s third homer of the season. He didn’t hit his first homer last season until the 21st game and finished the season with only 22.
Carlos Zambrano (1-0) struck out seven in seven inning.
Cardinals 3, Nationals 0
ST. LOUIS ó Kyle Lohse (1-0) allowed four hits in seven innings, Rick Ankiel homered and St. Louis completed a three-game sweep.
Despite a major league-high nine players on the disabled list, the Cardinals have won five straight since losing on opening day.
Pirates 9, Marlins 2
MIAMI ó Ian Snell (1-0) struck out 10 in six innings, allowing two runs ó one earned ó and four hits.
