Major Leagues: National League Roundup

Associated Press
The National League Roundup …SAN DIEGO ó Pinch-hitter Tony Clark connected for a go-ahead, three-run homer off Billy Wagner with two outs in the eighth inning to give San Diego a four-game sweep of New York.
Wagner (0-1) relieved Duaner Sanchez with two outs and runners on first and second. The left-hander gave up an RBI single to Jody Gerut that cut New York’s lead to 6-5. Clark then hit a full-count fastball over the center-field wall to extend the Padres’ season-high winning streak to five games.
The pinch-hit homer was the 11th of Clark’s career and the first of the season for San Diego. It also deprived a shaky Pedro Martinez of his second win since he returned from the disabled list Tuesday.
The staggering Mets (30-32) finished a 2-5 trip to California. New York, a World Series favorite before the season, is fourth in the NL East, 71/2 games behind first-place Philadelphia.
Marlins 9, Reds 2

WASHINGTON ó Barry Zito earned his second win of the season and Ray Durham finished with four hits, leading San Francisco past Washington.
Zito (2-9) allowed three runs and seven hits in five innings.
