Major Leagues: National League Roundup

Associated Press
The NL Roundup …
DENVER ó Matt Holliday hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth, Aaron Cook pitched seven strong innings and Colorado snapped a five-game losing streak.
Tom Glavine gave up three hits in 61/3 shutout innings but got his second straight no-decision, despite owning a 0.79 ERA in two starts.
The game took just 2:05 to play, the shortest nine-inning game in Coors Field history.
Matt Herges (1-0) got the victory in relief of Cook, and Manny Corpas got his second save of the season.
The Rockies trailed 1-0 into the eighth before rallying. Troy Tulowitzki led off with a double to right-center off of reliever Blaine Boyer (0-2), and after Todd Helton struck out looking, Holliday blasted Boyer’s first pitch over the center field wall.
Phillies 5, Reds 3
CINCINNATI ó Pat Burrell hit two of Philadelphia’s four homers off Bronson Arroyo, a power splurge that swept Philadelphia to a 5-3 victory Monday and a split of their four-game series with the Cincinnati Reds.
Jimmy Rollins and Geoff Jenkins also homered off Arroyo (0-1), who had never before given up more than three in a game.
Cubs 10, Pirates 8, 12 innings
PITTSBURGH ó Aramis Ramirez’s sacrifice fly scored the go-ahead run during a two-run 12th inning in which the Cubs didn’t have a hit off rookie Evan Meek, and Chicago rallied after squandering a seven-run lead to win Pittsburgh’s home opener.
Padres 8, Giants 4
SAN FRANCISCO ó Greg Maddux earned his 348th career win, Adrian Gonzalez went 4-for-5 with a homer and four runs, and San Diego spoiled San Francisco’s home opener.
Maddux (1-0) gave up one run and three hits in seven innings, and has won six straight decisions against San Francisco since 2003. He retired 19 of his final 20 batters after giving up an RBI single to Bengie Molina in the first ó the only run the Giants have scored before the fifth inning this season.
Khalil Greene drove in three runs for the Padres with two sacrifice flies and a single.
Astros 5, Cardinals 3
HOUSTON ó Miguel Tejada’s two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth gave Houston the win, snapping St. Louis’ winning streak at five games.
Tejada’s home run to right field off Kyle McClellan (0-1) scored pinch runner Darin Erstad.
The Astros led 3-0 before the Cardinals three-hit ninth inning. Ryan Ludwick’s two-out, two RBI double off closer Jose Valverde (2-0) tied it at 3 in the top of the ninth. Cesar Izturis scored easily on the hit to right center field.
Marlins 10, Nationals 7
WASHINGTON ó Hanley Ramirez, Dan Uggla and Robert Andino homered, and four Florida relievers combined for 5 2-3 innings of one-run ball.
The Nationals dropped their fifth consecutive game after a 3-0 start.
