DENVER - Kyle Lohse pitched six solid innings to match a major-league high with his seventh win and Jon Jay hit a two-run homer, helping the St. Louis Cardinals hold off the Colorado Rockies, 4-3, on Sunday.

Colby Rasmus added a solo shot and Yadier Molina chipped in a run-scoring single as the Cardinals finished up a nine-game road trip with a 6-3 mark.

The Rockies struggled to get anything going early against Lohse (7-2) a night after scoring a season-high 15 runs. The righty scattered six hits and struck out six before running out of steam in the seventh.

A healthy Lohse joins a pack of pitchers tied at seven wins. He had a total of 10 victories over the last two seasons while hampered by a forearm injury that required surgery last year.

Jhoulys Chacin (5-4) was hit hard for a second straight outing, surrendering four runs and six hits in six innings against the Cardinals. Most of the damage was done in the opening frame when Chacin allowed three runs, including Jay's deep shot to right on an 83-m.p.h. slider.

The Rockies have dropped eight of 10 and now embark on a nine-game road trip.

Lohse was cruising along until the seventh when he gave up three straight hits to begin the frame, including an RBI single by Ty Wigginton.

Reliever Eduardo Sanchez was summoned and promptly walked Chris Iannetta to load the bases. But he struck out pinch-hitter Jason Giambi and got Eric Young Jr. to line into a double play to escape the inning with no runs.

Sanchez started the eighth and ran into trouble by allowing a single to Carlos Gonzalez and walking Todd Helton. Fernando Salas came in and struck out Wigginton.

In the ninth, Salas walked Ryan Spilborghs before striking out the next two hitters. After an RBI single by Young, Dexter Fowler singled to right to put runners on the corners. But Salas got Gonzalez to ground out to earn his ninth save in as many appearances.

Padres 5, Nationals 4

WASHINGTON - These days, five runs qualifies as an offensive outburst for San Diego. On Sunday, the Padres' fifth run came on a single that barely left the infield. It was just enough for a win.

The win over Washington was just the Padres' fourth in 12 games - and the only time in that stretch they scored more than three runs.

With Jorge Cantu on second and two outs in the ninth, Ryan Ludwick hit a slow roller up the middle that Ian Desmond fielded in short center. It dribbled off his glove, and Cantu narrowly beat Desmond's throw home.

Brewers 6, Giants 0

MILWAUKEE - Yovani Gallardo allowed four hits over eight innings to win his fifth straight start, and Milwaukee beat San Francisco to wrap up an 8-1 homestand.

Milwaukee has been especially cozy at Miller Park. The Brewers are an NL-best and franchise-record 21-7 at home. Now, they'll need to find a way to play better on the road, where they are 8-17 this season.

Gallardo (7-2) retired 14 in a row at one point.

Dodgers 8, Marlins 0

LOS ANGELES - Clayton Kershaw pitched a two-hitter for his second shutout and complete game in the majors, Rafael Furcal hit his first home run of the season and drove in three runs, and Los Angeles routed Florida.

Kershaw (6-3) struck out 10 and walked one and was supported by the Dodgers' season-high 17 hits.

Florida's only hits off the 23-year-old lefthander were a leadoff single in the second by Omar Infante and a wind-blown double by Logan Morrison leading off the seventh.

Kershaw was also 2 for 4 with an RBI.

Hanley Ramirez, the Marlins' three-time all-star shortstop, was removed from the game midway through the second inning because of stiffness in his lower back.

Ricky Nolasco (4-1) surrendered eight runs and 15 hits over five innings.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly and centerfielder Matt Kemp were ejected for arguing balls and strikes.

Cubs 3, Pirates 2

CHICAGO - Aramis Ramirez ended a long home run drought, Ryan Dempster threw six solid innings, and Chicago beat Pittsburgh in a rain-delayed game.

Ramirez's line-drive solo shot in the second broke a streak of 155 at-bats without a home run, the second longest stretch of his career. Ramirez went 170 at-bats between homers from Aug. 2, 1998 until April 21, 2000.

Dempster (4-4) recovered from a poor start to post his fifth quality start in his last six outings. After allowing two runs, a walk and Lyle Overbay's two-run double in the first inning, Dempster settled down to shut out the Pirates on four hits over the next five innings.

Braves 2, Reds 1

ATLANTA - Jair Jurrjens outpitched Johnny Cueto, Martin Prado hit a two-run homer, and Atlanta rallied past Cincinnati to end the Reds' damaging road trip.

Prado also helped on defense by throwing out Paul Janish at the plate in the eighth inning to protect the lead. Janish tried to score from second base on Brandon Phillips' single to left field.

Prado's throw got to the plate first, but Janish appeared to slide home safely as catcher David Ross applied a high tag. Janish and manager Dusty Baker argued the call with home plate umpire Dan Iassogna.

The Reds lost two of three to the Braves to complete a 2-8 road trip.

Jurrjens joined a group of pitchers who have won seven games, high in the majors so far this spring.

Prado, who has seven homers, has 32 RBIs.

The Reds' Jay Bruce hit his league-leading 15th homer, off Jurrjens in the second inning, for Cincinnati's only run.
