NEW YORK - Buzz cuts have been a perfect tonic for the Mets. David Wright, Carlos Delgado and Damion Easley homered, helping New York to a 5-4 victory over Milwaukee last night that stopped the Brewers' six-game winning streak.
Jorge Sosa (2-0) won his second straight start since coming back from the minors and beat Jeff Suppan (5-3), who pitched at Shea Stadium for the first time since helping the St. Louis Cardinals win Game 7 of last year's NL championship series.
New York took a 4-0 lead in the fourth, won for the seventh time in nine games and cooled off the hottest team in the majors. Milwaukee came to town with a big league-best 24-10 record and had won 10 of 11.
Geoff Jenkins, Prince Fielder and J.J. Hardy homered for the Brewers.
Braves 4, Pirates 1
PITTSBURGH - Andruw Jones and Jeff Francoeur homered on consecutive pitches in the sixth inning to help Atlanta end its longest streak without a homer in 24 years and beat Pittsburgh.
Manager Bobby Cox tied Sparky Anderson for fourth place in career victories with 2,194.
Nationals 6, Marlins 0
WASHINGTON - Shawn Hill threw five no-hit innings before leaving with a sore right elbow, helping Washington end an eight-game losing streak by beating Florida.
Hill (3-3) walked two and retired the other 15 batters he faced.
He took the mound to start the sixth but left without throwing a pitch.
Diamondbacks 3, Astros 1
HOUSTON - Chris Young made it the perfect homecoming. The Houston native hit two solo home runs and Brandon Webb shut down the Astros for his sixth career complete game to lead Arizona over Houston.
The Diamondbacks won for the fourth time in five games.
Giants 8, Rockies 3
DENVER - San Francisco couldn't solve Josh Fogg early. Late in the game, though, the Giants figured him out.
The Colorado pitcher took a no-hitter into the sixth inning only to see it evaporate, and the Giants' Tim Lincecum earned his first major-league victory. Ray Durham's sacrifice fly to deep right in the eighth scored the go-ahead run for the Giants.
