REDS 4, CARDINALS 0

Leake (1-1) allowed four hits and a walk in eight scoreless innings and Devin Mesoraco hit a two-run home run for the Reds, who avoided a three-game sweep after dropping their ninth series in their last 10 in St. Louis.

Shelby Miller (0-2) allowed his fourth homer in two starts but held the Reds hitless in nine at-bats with runners in scoring position.

ROCKIES 10, WHITE SOX 4

DENVER • D.J. LeMahieu’s two-run single broke a tie in a six-run eighth inning. LeMahieu finished with three hits, including an RBI double in the sixth that tied the game at 4.

Rex Brothers (1-0) got two outs in the eighth as the Rockies took two of three in the series, and reliever Scott Downs (0-2) was the loser.

Chicago lost right fielder Avisail Garcia after he jammed his left shoulder diving for LeMahieu’s low liner in the sixth. The teams said X-rays were negative for a fracture or a separation.

NATIONALS 10, MARLINS 7

WASHINGTON • Jayson Werth hit a go-ahead grand slam in the eighth inning off Carlos Marmol after Bryce Harper’s upper-deck, three-run homer started a comeback from an early deficit, leaidng the Washington Nationals over the Miami Marlins.

Werth and Harper each delivered his first homer of the season as Washington overcame deficits of 5-0 and 7-6 in a topsy-turvy game. Werth’s shot off Marmol (0-1) came with one out, after the reliever allowed a single, hit a batter, then intentionally walked Anthony Rendon to load the bases.

It made a winner of Tyler Clippard (1-1), who yielded Garrett Jones’ tiebreaking RBI double in the top of the eighth after walking a pair of batters. Rafael Soriano worked the ninth for his second save.

CUBS 7, PIRATES 5

CHICAGO • Jason Hammel threw seven strong innings, Anthony Rizzo had four hits, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Pittsburgh Pirates despite allowing five solo home runs.

Hammel (2-0) retired the first 12 batters until Pedro Alvarez’s first homer of the game tied it to start the fifth. Hammel allowed three runs and three hits — all solo homers — while striking out six. Mike Olt and Junior Lake hit back-to-back home runs in the fifth against Wandy Rodriguez (0-2).

Alvarez and Russell Martin homered twice for the Pirates, and Travis Snider also went deep.
