Carlos Silva extended the best start by a Cubs pitcher in 43 years, allowing one run over seven innings, and Ryan Theriot scored four times for Chicago, which beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-1 on Monday.

Silva, a fomer Seattle Mariner, gave up four hits, struck out five and walked one in his first start against Pittsburgh since 2003. He became the first Cubs starter to go 8-0 since Ken Holtzman was 9-0 in 1967.

Padres 3, Phillies 1: Adrian Gonzalez's first of two solo homers broke up Cole Hamels' bid for a no-hitter with one out in the seventh, Wade LeBlanc pitched seven impressive innings and visiting San Diego beat struggling Philadelphia.

Giants 6, Reds 5: Juan Uribe drove in four runs with two singles, providing visiting San Francisco's final lead in a back-and-forth game, and the Giants' balky bullpen held on to beat Cincinnati.

Rockies 5, Astros 1: At Denver, Jason Hammel pitched 7 1/3 crisp innings and Clint Barmes had a two-run double, lifting Colorado over Houston.

Diamondbacks 7, Braves 4: At Phoenix, Stephen Drew drove in four runs, Mark Reynolds hit his 13th home run of the season, and Arizona beat Atlanta.

Dodgers 12, Cardinals 4: Blake DeWitt hit his first home run of the year and drove in a career-high five runs to lead host Los Angeles over St. Louis.
