National League roundup

The National League roundup…
NEW YORK — Prince Fielder hit a long home run early and a key single in the ninth inning Saturday, spoiling the Mets’ chances of a win against former closer Francisco Rodriguez and giving the Milwaukee Brewers an 11-9 victory over New York.
Casey McGehee followed Fielder’s tying hit with a two-run single off Manny Acosta, capping a four-run rally.
Rockies 7, Dodgers 6, 13 innings
DENVER — Dexter Fowler atoned for a crucial mistake by hitting an RBI single with two outs that gave the Rockies a win over the Dodgers.
Fowler misplayed a line drive by Trent Oletjen into an inside-the-park homer in the 12th that gave Los Angeles a 6-4 lead.
Pirates 5, Reds 3
PITTSBURGH — Neil Walker had two RBI singles, the second driving in Andrew McCutchen with the go-ahead run in the seventh inning, and the Pirates beat the Reds.
Astros 7, Giants 5
HOUSTON — Jose Altuve hit an inside-the-park drive for his first major league home run, a leadoff shot that sent the Astros over the Giants.
Altuve had three hits and fellow rookie J.D. Martinez homered and drove in four runs as the Astros matched a season high with their fourth straight win.
Braves 8, Diamondbacks 1
ATLANTA — Dan Uggla homered twice and drove in three runs, Brandon Beachy gave up only one run in six innings and the Braves continued to feast on the top teams in the NL West by beating the Diamondbacks.
Uggla’s two-run homer in the first gave Atlanta the lead. Uggla and Freddie Freeman hit back-to-back homers in the seventh.
Phillies 5, Nationals 0
WASHINGTON — Roy Oswalt pitched eight-hit ball for eight innings, Wilson Valdez and Jimmy Rollins each drove in two runs and Hunter Pence homered to lead the Phillies over the Nationals.
Oswalt was supposed to start for the Phillies on Friday night, but after torrential rain arrived in the first inning, the game was delayed by 2 hours, 22 minutes, and he was scratched.
The Phillies, winners for the 81st time this year, scored twice in the fourth and three times in the sixth as Oswalt (6-7) struck out nine — the most since joining Philadelphia last July.
He walked one and had runners on in every inning but the second and third.
Michael Stutes worked the ninth to complete the Phillies’ 15th shutout of the season.
