SHARE Wright holds Reds hitless until 7th inning

MILWAUKEE — Jamey Wright held Cincinnati hitless until the seventh inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Reds 6-1 Saturday in the first day game at Miller Park.

Aaron Boone ended Wright's no-hit bid with one out in the seventh when he lined a ball up the middle that second baseman Ronnie Belliard couldn't reach for a single.

Wright (1-1) left after giving up a leadoff homer to Jason LaRue in the eighth, which kept the Reds from being shut out for the first time since 1999.

Wright also had a nice day at the plate. He started a three-run burst off Pete Harnisch (0-1) in the third by drawing a leadoff walk and scoring on Tyler Houston's RBI single. Wright also singled in the sixth.

EXPOS 10, METS 0: Lee Stevens homered twice and had a career-high six RBIs while Javier Vazquez pitched seven shutout innings as Montreal romped over New York.

Stevens, who went 3-for-4, hit an RBI single in the second off Steve Trachsel (0-1).

PADRES 14, ROCKIES 10: Phil Nevin's three-run homer in the sixth inning gave San Diego the lead for good, and the Padres posted a seesaw victory over Colorado.

The Padres erupted for five runs in both the fourth and sixth innings off Mike Hampton.

CUBS 8, PHILLIES 4: Julio Zuleta drove in five runs and Sammy Sosa hit his first homer of the season as Chicago beat Philadelphia.

Bill Mueller also homered as the Cubs won their third straight game.

PIRATES 5, ASTROS 3: Pat Meares homered and drove in three runs to lift Pittsburgh over Houston for its first win at Enron Field.

MARLINS 8, BRAVES 0: Ryan Dempster pitched around five walks in six shutout innings, Charles Johnson snapped a slump with three RBIs, and Florida beat Atlanta.

With an 0-4 start, matching the worst start in franchise history, the Marlins needed a break — and got one in the first inning.

CARDINALS 8, DIAMONDBACKS 4: J.D. Drew hit a two-run home run and Darryl Kile got his first victory as St. Louis beat Arizona.

The Cardinals, swept at Colorado to open the season, go for a three-game sweep of Arizona on Sunday with Rick Ankiel on the mound against the Diamondbacks' Randy Johnson.
