ATLANTA — Jeromy Burnitz hit a grand slam in his first game back from the disabled list, and defensive replacement Tsuyoshi Shinjo threw out Chipper Jones at the plate for the final out to preserve the New York Mets' 6-5 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night.

Armando Benitez walked two batters with two outs in the ninth, and Julio Franco grounded a single to center. Shi250001225njo, who entered in the eighth as the Mets shuffled their outfield, charged hard and made a perfect, one-hop throw home. Catcher Vance Wilson tagged a sliding Jones and pumped his fist as he jumped to his feet.

Roger Cedeno and Wilson added two hits apiece for the Mets, who have won five of six after a four-game losing streak. Steve Trachsel (3-2) won his third straight start.

Tom Glavine makes his first start against his former team Saturday, facing Braves lefty Horacio Ramirez.

PHILLIES 4, EXPOS 2: In Montreal, Kevin Millwood won his fifth straight decision, and Bobby Abreu and Placido Polanco homered to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-2 victory over the Montreal Expos on Friday night. Millwood (7-1) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings as Philadelphia ended Montreal's three-game winning streak.

MARLINS 8, REDS 4: In Cincinnati, Jeff Austin let the first seven Marlins reach base Friday night, setting up a five-run rally that sent Florida to an 8-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Austin's quick meltdown allowed the Marlins to end a six-game losing streak and provide manager Jack McKeon with a pleasant homecoming.

Ivan Rodriguez, who missed the last three games because of an illness in the family, hit an RBI double on the first strike he got from Austin. After another walk, Derrek Lee and Juan Encarnacion followed with singles.

DODGERS 6, BREWERS 4: In Milwaukee, Shawn Green hit a go-ahead three-run homer exactly one year after his four-home run game at Miller Park as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-4 for their eighth straight victory Friday night. Green hit reliever John Foster's first pitch into the right-field bullpen, erasing Milwaukee's 4-3 lead with one out in the seventh. He went 3-for-5 with four RBIs.

ASTROS 7, CUBS 5: In Houston, Jose Vizcaino hit a three-run homer off Mark Prior in a six-run first inning to lead the Houston Astros over the Chicago Cubs 7-5 Friday night. The Astros won for the 11th time in 14 home games and moved within a half-game of the first-place Cubs in the NL Central.

CARDINALS 10, PIRATES 8: In Pittsburgh, J.D. Drew tripled home the go-ahead run in the 10th inning and the St. Louis Cardinals, down to their last strike before Scott Rolen hit a three-run homer in the ninth, rallied past the Pittsburgh Pirates 10-8 Friday night. Albert Pujols didn't homer for the first time in five games, but had a career-high five hits — including an RBI single in the two-run 10th against reliever Brian Meadows (0-1).

The Cardinals trailed 6-1 and 7-2 before getting two late-inning three-run homers, Tino Martinez's shot in the eighth off Brian Boehringer and Rolen's in the ninth off closer Mike Williams.

The Pirates still had a chance to win it, with Jeff Reboulet's double scoring the tying run in the bottom of the ninth. But Cal Eldred (3-1) got Kenny Lofton to fly out with the bases loaded to send the game into extra innings.

Jeff Fassero got three outs for his second save after Eldred blew his save opportunity in the ninth — the 12th blown save in 23 chances by St. Louis relievers this season.

The Pirates have lost 15 of 19 overall. Lofton homered to extend his hitting streak to 21 games, the NL's longest this season.

DIAMONDBACKS 5, PADRES 3: In Phoenix, Danny Bautista hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the eighth inning for his first longball in more than a year as the Arizona Diamondbacks handed the San Diego Padres their ninth consecutive loss, 5-3 Friday night. Bautista also had a pair of singles, one driving in a run, to help the Diamondbacks beat the Padres for the eighth time in a row.

Bautista, who missed most of last season with a dislocated shoulder, had not homered since May 3, 2002, a span of 152 at bats.

With the game tied at 2, reliever Mike Matthews (1-2) walked Luis Gonzalez with one out in the eighth, then Steve Finley's pop fly dropped between shortstop Ramon Vazquez and center fielder Jason Bay for a single.

Bautista hit a line drive over the right field fence on an 0-1 pitch to make it 5-2.

ROCKIES 10, GIANTS 7: In Denver, Todd Helton had four hits and four RBIs in the Colorado Rockies' 10-7 victory Friday night over the San Francisco Giants, who lost Barry Bonds to an injured right leg. The five-time MVP appeared to get hurt when he straightened his leg on a fifth-inning swing. He turned hard on the pitch and hobbled to first base as the line drive bounced off the wall in right for a single. Jose Hernandez hit his third homer in four games for the Rockies, who won for just the second time in seven games but improved their NL-best home record to 16-7.

Helton was 4-for-5 after missing his first start of the year Thursday with sinus congestion. He finished a triple short of the cycle and hit his first homer in more than a month in the sixth inning.

Benito Santiago hit his seventh homer and drove in three runs for San Francisco, which has lost nine of 11.
