NL: Death overshadows doubleheader

Associated Press
MIAMI ó Dan Uggla homered and drove in four runs to help the Florida Marlins beat Arizona 8-6 on Wednesday night in the first game of a doubleheader overshadowed by the death of the wife of Diamondbacks pitcher Scott Schoeneweis.
In Arizona, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said deputies found the body of 39-year-old Gabrielle Dawn Schoeneweis on the floor of the master bedroom in the family’s home shortly after noon Wednesday.
Schoeneweis won 30 games in his career at Duke and was one of the better pitchers in school history.
Jorge Cantu, Cody Ross and Wes Helms also drove in runs for the Marlins in their second victory in their last nine games. Florida starter Chris Volstad (3-3) struck out a career-high nine in six innings and won for the first time since April 14.
The nightcap was still tied 8-8 after 12 innings at deadline.
Reds 5, Phillies 1
CINCINNATI ó Aaron Harang limited the NL’s highest-scoring lineup to a solo homer, and Brandon Phillips drove in three runs to help Cincinnati end Philadelphia’s winning streak at five games.
Harang (4-4) has alternated losses and wins all season. He helped the Reds snap a four-game losing streak that was their longest of the season.
Braves 12, Rockies 4
ATLANTA ó Yunel Escobar hit a three-run homer in a nine-run fourth inning and Atlanta routed Colorado for the second straight night.
The Rockies were tied 1-1 with the Braves before the Braves broke loose for their biggest inning of the season.
Atlanta lost Omar Infante in the sixth inning. He broke a bone in his left hand when hit by a pitch from Manny Corpas.
Pirates 2, Nationals 1
WASHINGTON ó Washington’s Joel Hanrahan threw a two-out, 1-2 pitch to Adam LaRoche that bounced before it got to home plate, allowing Freddy Sanchez to score from third in the ninth inning.
Cardinals 2, Cubs 1
ST. LOUIS ó Chris Carpenter returned to St. Louis’ rotation with five scoreless innings, and Chris Duncan snapped a 1-for-21 slump with two hits and an RBI.
Carpenter (2-0) gave up three hits while throwing 67 pitches in his first outing since he strained a left rib-cage muscle April 14 at Arizona, and also his 100th career start with the Cardinals.
Astros 6, Brewers 4
HOUSTON ó Wandy Rodriguez pitched seven strong innings, Miguel Tejada and Hunter Pence both had two RBIs, and Houston ended Milwaukee’s winning streak at six. Padres 2, Giants 1SAN DIEGO ó Kevin Kouzmanoff’s homer was one of just four hits for the San Diego Padres, who still managed to beat the Giants in a matchup of the two lowest-scoring teams in the NL.
Dodgers 2, Mets 1
LOS ANGELES ó Russell Martin drove in the go-ahead run with an eighth-inning single.
