PHILADELPHIA — Pinch hitter Brandon Inge hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth inning and the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-3 Wednesday night.


Roy Halladay pitched six innings of one-hit ball and Chase Utley and Ryan Howard hit upper-deck solo homers off Wandy Rodriguez, but Mike Adams (1-2) couldn’t protect an eighth-inning lead.


Pedro Alvarez hit a solo homer off Antonio Bastardo in the seventh and his RBI single in the fourth was the only hit off Halladay.


Vin Mazzaro (1-0) retired the four batters he faced to earn the win. Mark Melancon worked the eighth and Jason Grilli finished for his ninth save in nine tries.


Mets 7, Dodgers 3, 10 inn.


NEW YORK -- Jordany Valdespin hit a grand slam in the 10th inning and the New York Mets rallied past the Los Angeles Dodgers to save early sensation Matt Harvey from his first loss of the season.


David Wright tied it with a two-out single in the ninth off Los Angeles closer Brandon League, handed his first blown save in six chances.


Matt Kemp hit his first homer of the year and drove in three runs as the Dodgers grabbed a 3-1 lead against Harvey. The budding Mets ace pitched pretty well, though, and was bailed out when his teammates rallied late.


Cardinals 4, Nationals 2


WASHINGTON — Yadier Molina hit a two-run single off Stephen Strasburg during St. Louis’ three-run first inning, and the Cardinals beat the Nationals to complete a sweep and give Washington’s All-Star ace the only four-start losing streak of his young career.


Jaime Garcia (2-1) allowed a run on Bryce Harper’s sixth-inning groundout, but otherwise added to the offensive struggles of the Nationals, who have lost six consecutive home games and nine of their last 12 overall to fall to 10-11.


Rockies 6, Braves 5, 12 innings


DENVER — Wilin Rosario scored from second on Yorvit Torrealba’s single to left and the Colorado Rockies rallied to beat the Atlanta Braves in 12 innings.


Michael Cuddyer and Josh Rutledge homered for the Rockies.


Reds 1, Cubs 0


CINCINNATI — Mat Latos pitched four-hit ball into the eighth inning, Todd Frazier hit a long home run and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Chicago Cubs.


Diamondbacks 3, Giants 2, 10 innings


SAN FRANCISCO — Pinch hitter Will Nieves delivered a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning to lift the Arizona Diamondbacks to a victory over the San Francisco Giants.
