Major Leagues: National League Roundup

Associated Press
The National League roundup …
PHILADELPHIA (AP) ó Randy Wolf pitched six crisp innings, Ryan Braun and Casey McGehee homered and the Milwaukee Brewers beat Roy Halladay and the Philadelphia Phillies 9-0 Tuesday night.
The Brewers became the first team to win a series against the NL East-leading Phillies this season. They’ll try to complete a three-game sweep on Wednesday afternoon when Cliff Lee takes the mound for Philadelphia.
Wolf (2-2) allowed two hits, struck out five and walked three against his former team.
Marlins 6, Pirates 0
MIAMI ó Josh Johnson allowed two hits in seven innings and drove in the first two runs to help the Marlins beat the Pirates.
Johnson (3-0) lowered his ERA to 1.00. He has allowed four hits or less in each of his four starts, and batters are hitting .112 against him.
Diamondbacks 5, Reds 4
CINCINNATI ó Ryan Roberts made the starting lineup because of an injury and hit two of Arizona’s four homers off Sam LeCure on Tuesday night, leading the Diamondbacks to a victory over the slumping Reds.
The Reds have dropped five of six, leaving them only a game over .500 (9-8) for the first time since they won on opening day.
Astros 6, Mets 1
NEW YORK ó Wandy Rodriguez found his form against the punchless Mets, pitching seven sharp innings to lead the Astros to a victory.
Michael Bourn and Carlos Lee sparked the offense as Houston won for the fifth time in nine games following a 1-7 start. The Astros have alternated wins and losses over those nine games.
Giants 6, Rockies 3
DENVER ó Jonathan Sanchez gave up two hits over 61/3 innings one night after Tim Lincecum flirted with a no-hitter and the Giants beat Colorado, spoiling Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez’s return from the disabled list.
San Francisco’s offense gave Sanchez (2-1) a four-run lead to work with thanks to Pablo Sandoval’s three-run homer.
