NATIONAL LEAGUE ROUNDUP Willis stays hot, Marlins top Reds

The Mets have won 10 of 13 after beating the Nationals.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

MIAMI -- Dontrelle Willis won his fourth straight start to begin the season, and Juan Encarnacion's two-run single helped the Florida Marlins to a 4-2 victory Saturday over the Cincinnati Reds.

Guillermo Mota struck out slumping Ken Griffey Jr. with runners at second and third to end it, preserving Florida's eighth victory in 11 games. Griffey went 0-for-4, dropping his batting average to .200 with no homers and three RBIs. He's hitless in his last 17 at-bats.

Willis (4-0) fanned seven in six innings and gave up two runs, six hits and two walks. His ERA rose from 1.13 to 1.50.

Nate Bump, Matt Perisho and Todd Jones combined for two scoreless innings before Mota pitched the ninth for his second save. He earned Florida's first save of the season on Friday night.

Cincinnati right-hander Matt Belisle (1-2) allowed four runs -- three earned -- and seven hits in five innings. He also hit two batters with pitches.

Felipe Lopez homered for the Reds, who lost their third straight.

Lopez's two-run shot in the sixth made the score 4-2. Lopez, who entered in the third inning, sent Willis' 0-2 pitch over the scoreboard in left.

Florida built a 4-0 lead in the third when Encarnacion's two-out single scored Luis Castillo and Carlos Delgado. The hit gave Encarnacion 19 RBIs.

Cardinals 1, Astros 0, 10 innings

ST. LOUIS -- Mark Mulder threw a 10-inning shutout, outpitching Roger Clemens in a marquee matchup.

Larry Walker's RBI single off Brad Lidge in the 10th won it for the Cardinals, moving manager Tony La Russa into a tie with Joe McCarthy for fifth place on the career victories list at 2,125.

Clemens allowed four hits in seven innings, lowering his ERA to 0.32 and pushing his scoreless streak to 23 innings. But he was thwarted for the third straight time in his bid for his 330th win. He remains tied with Steve Carlton for ninth on the career list.

Giants 6, Brewers 2

SAN FRANCISCO -- Brett Tomko pitched effectively into the seventh inning and hit a two-run single to give San Francisco a much-needed win.

The Giants had lost four of five games, scoring just 10 runs in that span.

Tomko (1-3) had been particularly hurt by the lack of support, as the Giants scored just one run while he was in the game in his first three starts.

Yorvit Torrealba keyed the offense in a rare start, hitting a solo homer to score San Francisco's first run and adding an RBI double in a four-run fourth inning against Chris Capuano (0-2).

Tomko followed Torrealba's double with his two-run single and also did the job on the mound. He allowed two runs and eight hits in 61/3 innings to improve to 7-1 in his career against Milwaukee.

Scott Eyre got Lyle Overbay to fly out with the bases loaded to end the seventh inning and Armando Benitez got five outs for his fourth save.

The Brewers, who snapped a seven-game losing streak Friday against San Francisco, got an RBI single from Carlos Lee in the third inning and a solo home run into McCovey Cove -- the ninth ever by a Giants opponent -- by Russell Branyan in the fourth.
