Major Leagues: National League roundup

Associated Press
The National League roundup …
ATLANTA (AP) ó Eric Hinske had three hits, including a tie-breaking single in the seventh, and Atlanta used a makeshift lineup in the victory.
Manager Fredi Gonzalez subbed Hinske in left field and Joe Mather, who had a two-run single in the sixth, in right as the Braves were missing third baseman Chipper Jones and right fielder Jason Heyward from their starting lineup.
Tommy Hanson (5-3) gave up three hits and two runs, one earned, in seven innings. He struck out 10, one shy of his career high, with only one walk.
Craig Kimbrel gave up a single to Carlos Lee but struck out the side in the ninth for his 11th save.
Matt Downs had a homer and RBI double for Houston.
After Fernando Abad (1-4) walked Nate McLouth and Dan Uggla in the seventh, Hinske’s single to right drove in McLouth for a 3-2 lead.
Cardinals 3, Phillies 1
ST. LOUIS ó Jake Westbrook allowed one run in seven innings and St. Louis snapped a three-game losing streak in manager Tony La Russa’s first game back from illness, capitalizing on Cliff Lee’s career-high six walks.
Lee (2-4) is winless in six starts since throwing a three-hit shutout at Washington on April 14. He departed after 122 pitches. Ryan Theriot, Matt Holliday and Lance Berkman each walked twice against Lee.
Reds 7, Cubs 4
CINCINNATI ó Jonny Gomes hit his first homer in nearly a month, completing Cincinnati’s seven-run rally that ended Carlos Zambrano’s run of road success.
Zambrano (4-2) had won his last 10 starts on the road, matching the second-longest such streak in Cubs history since 1919. He took a one-hitter into the sixth, then fell apart.
Nationals 4, Pirates 2
WASHINGTON ó Danny Espinosa broke out of a slump with a two-run homer in the seventh inning and Washington extended Pittsburgh’s losing streak to a season-worst seven games.
Espinosa, who was 8 for 73, drove the first pitch thrown by reliever Jose Ascanio into the left-field bullpen, scoring Mike Morse, who had singled.
