Associated Press
The National League Roundup …
NEW YORK ó Johan Santana gave the Mets exactly what they needed after a 14-inning marathon used up their bullpen.
The two-time Cy Young Award winner pitched his seventh complete game, Fernando Tatis and Ramon Castro hit two-run homers and New York pounded Kyle Lohse and the St. Louis Cardinals 9-1 on Sunday to wrap up another successful homestand.
Santana (9-7) allowed six hits and a walk in winning for just the second time since June 1, a maddening stretch during which he was tagged with four losses and four no-decisions.
Phillies 12, Braves 10
PHILADELPHIA ó Pat Burrell hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the fifth inning and the Phillies rallied for the win.
Chris Coste, Shane Victorino, Jayson Werth and Jimmy Rollins also went deep for Philadelphia, which overcame a 5-0 deficit a day after coming back from a 9-3 hole.
Braves All-Star catcher Brian McCann left with a mild concussion after a collision with Victorino in the sixth.Since June 5, the Phillies are 8-1 against the Braves and 12-22 against everyone else.
Cubs 9, Marlins 6
CHICAGO ó Derrek Lee homered and Mike Fontenot had a pinch-hit, three-run double during a four-run seventh inning, helping the Cubs rally for a win that gave them sole possession of the NL Central lead.
Astros 11, Brewers 6
MILWAUKEE ó Geoff Blum hit a pair of home runs for Houston, including a three-run shot that capped a seven-run fifth.
Blum hit both homers off Jeff Suppan (5-7), and is batting .542 (13-for-24) in his career against the right-hander.
Padres 3, Pirates 1
PITTSBURGH ó Jake Peavy struck out 10 in seven strong innings and Scott Hairston hit a go-ahead home run in the eighth for San Diego.

Diamondbacks 7, Giants 2
SAN FRANCISCO ó Randy Johnson tossed seven shutout innings to win his fourth straight start and Arizona completed its first sweep in San Francisco in seven years.
Johnson, who recorded career win No. 292, extended his scoreless inning streak to 15, his longest since 19 straight in September 2002.
