Major Leagues: National League Roundup

Associated Press
The NL Roundup …MIAMI ó Rookie Jorge Campillo pitched seven innings and two relievers completed a two-hitter to help the Atlanta Braves beat the Florida Marlins 4-0 Monday night.
The 29-year-old Campillo (5-4), who moved into the rotation in May, allowed both hits, walked one and lowered his ERA to 2.83.
Will Ohman and Mike Gonzalez each pitched one perfect inning. Mark Teixera and Mark Kotsay each had two hits, drove in a run and scored once.
The Marlins fell a game behind the idle NL East leaders, Philadelphia and the New York Mets.
Diamondbacks 2, Cubs 0
PHOENIX ó Randy Johnson improved to 13-0 in 14 career starts against the Chicago Cubs, outdueling Rich Harden.
Johnson (7-7), winning his third straight after six consecutive losses, allowed two hits, struck out four and walked one in seven innings for his 291st victory in a swift, 2-hour, 18-minute game. The 44-year-old left-hander is the second pitcher to ever go at least 10-0 against the Cubs. The other was Sal Maglie, who was 10-0 in 19 starts against Chicago from 1954 to 1958.
Brewers 6, Cardinals 3
ST. LOUIS ó Bill Hall homered leading off the top of the 10th, helping Milwaukee beat St. Louis 6-3 after squandering a ninth-inning lead.
Milwaukee is 4-0 on its seven-game trip and a National League-best 35-19 since May 20. The win moved the Brewers percentage points ahead of St. Louis for second place in the NL Central behind Chicago.
Pirates 9, Astros 3
HOUSTON ó Freddy Sanchez hit a three-run, inside-the-park homer to cap a seven-run ninth inning, and the Pittsburgh Pirates snapped a five-game skid with a 9-3 win over the Houston Astros. Jason Bay and Adam LaRoche also homered in the inning off Houston closer Jose Valverde, who came in with the Astros leading 3-2.
Padres 6, Reds 4
CINCINNATI ó Kevin Kouzmanoff’s two-run double completed San Diego’s ninth-inning comeback off closer Francisco Cordero, and the Padres snapped their six-game losing streak.
Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 606th homer, a two-run shot that allowed Cincinnati to take a 4-3 lead into the ninth. Cordero (4-3) then gave up a lead for the second time in his last three appearances.
