Olivo's homer in 10th leads Rockies past Phillies

Miguel Olivo went 5-for-5, including a leadoff home run in the 10th inning, to give host Colorado a 4-3 victory over Philadelphia Wednesday. The nightcap of the scheduled day-night doubleheader was postponed.

The Phillies' Roy Halladay took a 3-1 lead into the seventh, but the Colorado native had a no-decision after Brad Hawpe's tying, two-run triple. Olivo, who started the day in a 2-for-28 slump, homered on Chad Durbin's first pitch.

Braves 9, Brewers 2

Brooks Conrad homered, doubled and drove in four runs for visiting Atlanta.

Cubs 4, Marlins 3

Carlos Silva (4-0) gave up two runs in 61/3 innings, and Marlon Byrd hit an RBI double as host Chicago snapped a four-game skid.

Reds 5, Pirates 0

Homer Bailey (1-2) matched Johnny Cueto, giving visiting Cincinnati back-to-back shutouts.

Rays 4, Angels 3

David Price (5-1) pitched into the seventh inning to win his third straight decision, and visiting Tampa Bay scored twice on passed balls by Ryan Budde.

Blue Jays 3, Red Sox 2

Shaun Marcum (2-1) pitched two-hit ball for seven shutout innings and Travis Snider homered and drove in all three runs for visiting Toronto.

Twins 3, White Sox 2

Carl Pavano (4-3) went seven innings and made it four straight starts of allowing two earned runs or fewer for host Minnesota.

Strasburg dominates

Stephen Strasburg, the top pick of the 2009 draft by the Washington Nationals, threw six no-hit innings last night against Norfolk in his second start for Syracuse. - AP
