Major Leagues: National League roundup

Associated Press
The National League roundup …
SAN FRANCISCO ó Willie Bloomquist hit a go-ahead two-run triple after Ryan Robertsí solo homer tied it in the eighth, and the NL West-leading Arizona Diamondbacks extended their division cushion to a season-best seven games with a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants on Sunday.
The D-backs finally delivered for Daniel Hudson (15-9) when they got to All-Star Ryan Vogelsong in the eighth. Until then, Cody Rossí first-inning home run had held up. Hudson won his third straight start, helping Arizona (80-60) leave the Bay Area for Colorado in a comfortable spot with 22 games to go.
Brewers 4, Astros 0
HOUSTON ó Shaun Marcum pitched seven innings of one-hit ball, helping the Brewers complete the three-game series sweep.
Ryan Braun homered among his three hits and drove in two runs for Milwaukee, which increased its NL Central lead to 91/2 games over St. Louis.
Marlins 5, Phillies 4, 14 innings
MIAMI ó Mike Cameron drove in the winning run with a two-out, bases-loaded walk in the 14th inning, and the Marlins benefited from an overturned ruling after a video review.
Hunter Pence was ruled out on fan interference in the sixth inning after initially being awarded a double, and the ruling change may have cost the Phillies two runs. They played the game under protest.
Padres 7, Rockies 2
SAN DIEGO ó Jeremy Hermida and Will Venable drove in three runs apiece, and the Padres snapped a nine-game losing streak.
Hermida had an RBI single in the first and a two-run single in the third as the Padres won for the first time since a 7-5 victory at San Francisco on Aug. 23.
Braves 4, Dodgers 3
ATLANTA ó Martin Prado hit a game-ending RBI single in the ninth inning and the Braves ended the Dodgersí six-game winning streak.
Reds 3, Cardinals 2, 10 innings
ST. LOUIS ó Juan Francisco capped a career-best four-hit day with the go-ahead hit in the 10th inning, lifting Cincinnati to the victory.
Mets 6, Nationals 3
WASHINGTON ó Willie Harris had a pinch-hit two-run single, highlighting a four-run rally in the sixth inning that lifted New York to the victory in what was likely Livan Hernandezís final game with Washington.
Cubs 6, Pirates 3
CHICAGO ó Randy Wells pitched six strong innings and Marlon Byrd drove in two runs to help the Cubs avoid a three-game series sweep.
Wells (7-4) was impressive again after pitching his first career shutout in Mondayís 7-0 win over the Giants. He allowed one run while scattering seven hits.
Sean Marshall pitched a scoreless ninth for his fourth save in eight chances as Chicago won just for the third time in 10 games.
Pirates starter Charlie Morton (9-9) allowed four runs, three earned, and seven hits in 4 1-3 innings.
Neil Walker hit a two-run shot in the eighth and Derrek Lee had three hits for Pittsburgh, which has lost six of eight.
