LOS ANGELES -- Greg Maddux recorded his 349th career victory one day before his 42nd birthday and Paul McAnulty drove in the only run with a sacrifice fly, leading the San Diego Padres to a 1-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.
Maddux (2-0) threw 68 pitches over five innings in 95-degree heat, allowing two hits and a walk while striking out two. The four-time Cy Young winner has made nine of his 35 career starts against the Dodgers in April, going 8-0 with a 1.11 ERA in that month.
Trevor Hoffman, the all-time saves leader, pitched a scoreless ninth for his fourth of the season and 528th of his career.
Chad Billingsley (0-2) allowed a run and four hits, struck out eight and walked two over five innings.
Nationals 5, Braves 4
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Atlanta starter Tom Glavine left with an injury before recording an out, and the Washington Nationals ended their nine-game losing streak.
Glavine (0-1) matched the shortest start of his 22-season, 303-win career, departing with a strained right hamstring after letting all four batters he faced reach base. He was replaced by Jeff Bennett, who got a double play grounder that scored a run to give Washington a 2-0 lead. Both runs were charged to Glavine.
Staked to that 5-0 lead, Washington starter Tim Redding (2-1) and five relievers did just enough to protect it and end the Nationals' longest losing streak since the franchise moved to the nation's capital.
Brewers 9, Mets 7
NEW YORK (AP) -- Gabe Kapler, who managed in the Red Sox organization last season, homered for the second straight day, doubled twice and drove in three runs to help Milwaukee beat the Mets.
Corey Hart had a career-high four hits and Rickie Weeks homered off Jorge Sosa (1-1) and scored three runs for the Brewers, who won two of three in the weekend series.
The 32-year-old Kapler came out of retirement during the offseason and has four home runs in 26 at-bats. The last time Kapler had at least four homers in a season was 2004, with Boston. He didn't get No. 4 that season until July 21, in his 159th at-bat.
Salomon Torres (2-0) worked two innings, and Eric Gagne pitched a perfect ninth for his third save in five chances.
David Wright hit his 100th home run for the Mets.
Astros 5, Marlins 1
HOUSTON (AP) -- Wandy Rodriguez (1-0) struck out seven and allowed five hits in seven strong innings, and J.R. Towles and Michael Bourn homered to lead the Astros, who've won two in a row for the first time this season.
Josh Willingham hit a solo homer for the Marlins.
Florida's Burke Badenhop (0-1), making his first major league start, allowed seven hits with three strikeouts and a walk. The 25-year-old Badenhop came to Florida in the deal that sent Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera to Detroit. Pirates 9, Reds 1
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Ryan Doumit, Xavier Nady and Jason Bay homered and Tom Gorzelanny (1-1) limited the Reds to one run and four hits to outpitch Cincinnati rookie Johnny Cueto, leading the Pirates to a three-game sweep of the Reds.
Cueto (1-1), outstanding in his first two starts with 18 strikeouts and no walks, wasn't as sharp in this one as he gave up five runs and five hits -- four for extra bases -- in six innings. He struck out six but also issued his first walk.
Cueto struck out 22 batters until he finally gave up a walk after being the only pitcher since 1900 to strike out as many as 18 and walk none in his first two starts.
Cubs 6, Phillies 5, 10 innings
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Second baseman Chase Utley's throwing error allowed Ronny Cedeno to score the go-ahead run in the 10th inning and the Cubs beat the Phillies to avoid a three-game sweep.
Cedeno walked leading off the 10th against Rudy Seanez (0-1) and Geovany Soto walked after Ryan Theriot's sacrifice. Pitcher Carlos Zambrano, a career .215 hitter with 12 homers, came off the bench to pinch-hit because the Cubs were out of position players.
Zambrano hit a grounder to shortstop Bruntlett that should've been an inning-ending double play. However, first baseman Ryan Howard couldn't scoop Utley's poor throw to first and Cedeno scored.
Kerry Wood (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings and Bob Howry finished for his first save.
Giants 7, Cardinals 4
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Tim Lincecum struck out 11 in six innings and rookie John Bowker homered for the second straight day and drove in four runs for the Giants.
Bowker became the first player in San Francisco history to homer in his first two games.
Lincecum (2-0) needed 23 pitches to get out of the first inning but settled in after that, allowing just one walk and six hits.
Joel Pineiro (0-1), the Cardinals' right-hander who began the year on the disabled list due to soreness in his pitching shoulder, left after giving up six runs and 10 hits in 3 2-3 innings of his season debut.
Rockies 13, Diamondbacks 5
PHOENIX (AP) -- Clint Barmes, Matt Holliday and Garrett Atkins homered, and Colorado Rockies snapped the Diamondbacks' eight-game win streak.
Barmes drove in four runs and Holliday and Atkins knocked in three apiece for the Rockies, who beat their NL West rivals for the first time in six meetings this year.
Aaron Cook (1-1) went six innings, allowing three runs on eight hits. He walked three and struck out four.
Barmes hit a 1-2 delivery from Edgar Gonzalez (0-1) 380 feet to left field for his first homer.
