San Francisco, CA — Juan Uribe hit an RBI single in the 11th inning as the San Francisco Giants rallied for a rare win against the San Diego Padres, edging their National League West rivals 3-2 on Saturday.

The Giants won for just the second time in 10 meetings against San Diego and moved within 2 1/2 games of the Padres for first place in the NL West division.

Buster Posey led off the 11th against San Diego pitcher Tim Stauffer (3-2) with a groundball double up the middle. After Pablo Sandoval was intentionally walked, Uribe blooped a single to right and Posey easily scored.

Giants reliver Santiago Casilla (4-2) escaped a first-and-third, one-out jam

Dodgers 2, Braves 1

In Atlanta, Ted Lilly threw six scoreless innings for his third straight win as Los Angeles held on for a narrow win over Atlanta.

Lilly (6-8) left the game with a 1-0 lead.

Dodgers closer Hong-Chih Kuo pitched a perfect ninth in his first opportunity since Jonathan Broxton was removed from the closer’s role on Friday.

Los Angeles had two or more baserunners in four of the first six innings against Atlanta’s Derek Lowe (11-10), who pitched out of all the jams except in the fourth. Lowe gave up 10 hits in six innings.

Phillies 4, Mets 0

In New York, Philadelphia took advantage of some shoddy defense to scratch out its first runs at Citi Field this season, beating New York.

Phillies starter Roy Halladay (15-8) made the meager offense look insurmountable. He also had a base hit and scored a run while winning his season-high fifth straight start, which includes a victory last weekend against New York

Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez was booed when he pitched for the first time since his arrest on a charge of assaulting his girlfriend’s father at Citi Field.

New York starter Pat Misch (0-1) gave up four runs in six innings. The Mets committed three errors that led to three unearned runs.

Reds 5, Marlins 4

In Cincinnati, Mike Leake snapped his three-start losing streak and drove in a run, guiding Cincinnati past Florida.

Leake (8-4) allowed runners to reach second base in every one of his six innings, but he was hurt only by two homers. The rookie gave up six hits and struck out six.

Drew Stubbs homered as the Reds moved back into a tie with St. Louis for the NL Central lead.

Florida’s Sean West (0-2) took the loss.

Brewers 5, Rockies 4

In Denver, Casey McGehee hit an RBI single in the 10th inning as Milwaukee overcame three errors and having three runners thrown out on the basepaths to beat Colorado.

Ryan Braun led off the 10th with a double off Huston Street (2-4) and Prince Fielder was then intentionally walked. McGehee then lined his second single of the night into center to score Braun.

Milwaukee’s John Axford (7-1) pitched two scoreless innings in relief for the win.

Cubs 3, Cardinals 2

In St. Louis, Carlos Zambrano won for the first time since his banishment for a dugout tantrum in June, and Chicago snuck past St. Louis.

Zambrano (4-6) allowed seven hits in 5 2-3 innings. Carlos Marmol got the final five outs for the save, his 20th in 24 chances but his first in three weeks.

Chris Carpenter (13-4) took the loss as the Cardinals were defeated for the first time in five games.

Diamondbacks 9, Nationals 2

In Washington, Miguel Montero hit two of Arizona’s four home runs in the victory over Washington.

Montero started things by launching a two-run shot in the second off Jason Marquis (0-5). Gerardo Parra added his third home run with two outs to make it 3-0. Kelly Johnson hit his 18th in the fourth. Montero led off the sixth with his second home run.

Ian Kennedy (7-9) pitched seven strong innings and singled twice for the Diamondbacks. In his longest start for nine weeks, he allowed two runs, walked only one and struck out seven. His two hits were a career high, and he scored a run.

Astros 3, Pirates 2

In Houston, Bud Norris had a career-high 14 strikeouts to steer Houston to a win over Pittsburgh.

Norris (5-7) survived a shaky first inning to last seven, conceding two runs. He also got two hits for the first time in his career.

Hunter Pence homered in the fourth and drove in the tiebreaking run with a double in the seventh as the Astros won at home against the Pirates for the eighth straight time.

Pittsburgh’s Paul Maholm (7-11) went 6 2-3 innings and gave up nine hits.
