The NL roundup …
PITTSBURGH ó Starlin Castro had three hits and Carlos Zambrano survived six choppy innings as the Chicago Cubs spoiled slugger Derrek Leeís two-homer debut with his new team in a 5-3 win against Pittsburgh.
Lee, acquired in a trade with the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night, knocked in all three Pittsburgh runs but it wasnít enough as the Pirates lost for the sixth time in eight games. Ryan Ludwick, picked up by the Pirates just before the trade deadline, went 0 for 3 with a walk
Zambrano (8-6) picked up his 13th career win over Pittsburgh, tied with Aaron Harang for second-most among active pitchers. Zambrano struck out five and walked three while giving up seven hits. Carlos Marmol pitched a perfect ninth to collect his 21st save.
Paul Maholm (6-11) surrendered four runs on six hits in six innings, striking out three and walking three.
Marlins 7, Mets 3, 10 innings
NEW YORK ó Mike Stanton hit a grand slam in the 10th inning and the Florida Marlins quickly recovered from Lucas Dudaís tying homer with two outs in the ninth.
Mets nemesis Gaby Sanchez drove in two runs and singled to start the decisive rally. Stanton threw out a runner at the plate in the fifth and Florida got seven strong innings from starter Javier Vazquez. The Marlins then took advantage of a defensive mistake by first baseman Daniel Murphy in the 10th.
Sanchez and Hanley Ramirez singled with one out off Jason Isringhausen (2-1). Dewayne Wise followed with a single through the right side and went tearing toward second base, not realizing the runners had held up in front of him.
Duda hit a tying, two-run homer off closer Leo Nunez (1-2) with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, snapping an 0-for-14 skid.
