PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Ryan Ludwick lined a two-run double after two Cincinnati batters were hit by pitches, lifting Tony Cingrani and the Reds over the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1 Thursday.

The Reds won for the seventh time in nine games and reached .500 at 11-11.

The Pirates have lost six of seven, scoring a total of 22 runs in that span.

Cingrani (2-2) allowed one run and six hits in six innings. He struck out seven and walked two.

Ludwick's double in the sixth drove in Joey Votto and Todd Frazier. Both of them were plunked by rookie Brandon Cumpton (0-1), promoted from Triple-A earlier in the day.

METS 4, CARDINALS 1

NEW YORK (AP) — Chris Young homered to start New York's comeback and slumping Curtis Granderson singled in a run as a pinch hitter as Bartolo Colon and the Mets beat the Cardinals to send Lance Lynn to his first career loss in April.

Colon (2-3) allowed four hits in seven innings, struck out eight and walked none. Daisuke Matsuzaka finished the four-hitter with a perfect ninth for his first save since 2000 with the Seibu Lions of Japan's Pacific League.

New York took three of four from the defending NL champions and has won four of five overall.

Lynn (4-1) had been 12-0 through April in his big league career, including one March victory.

DIAMONDBACKS 5, CUBS 2

CHICAGO (AP) — Mike Bolsinger earned his first major league win, pitching into the seventh inning and hitting an RBI single as the Diamondbacks beat the Cubs.

Bolsinger (1-1) allowed one unearned run and four hits in 6 2-3 innings. He struck out seven and walked two.

Miguel Montero drove in two runs, and the Diamondbacks won consecutive games for only the second time this season.

Edwin Jackson (1-2) pitched seven innings. He retired 17 of 18 batters after Bolsinger's run-scoring single in the second.

PADRES 4, NATIONALS 3, 12 INNINGS

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Nationals outfielder Xavier Nady's tiebreaking RBI single off Craig Stammen in the top of the 12th inning, right after an error let the runner get to third base, gave the Padres a victory over Washington.

Nady, who entered the game in the ninth, hit a 2-0 fastball up the middle off Stammen (0-1), who was working his third inning.

Jedd Gyorko had singled off Stammen, then stole second and got to third when catcher Jose Lobaton's throw sailed into the outfield.

Alex Torres (1-0), San Diego's sixth pitcher, got two outs in the 11th for the win.

PHILLIES 7, DODGERS 3

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Carlos Ruiz hit a tiebreaking two-run double off Brian Wilson in the ninth inning, Marlon Byrd drove in four runs and the Phillies beat the Dodgers.

Adrian Gonzalez — whose fielding error in the fifth led to two runs — had tied the game 3-all in the seventh before Philadelphia scored four in the ninth.

Ruiz regained the lead for the Phillies when he lined a 3-2 pitch down the right field line with one out after singles by Cody Asche and Ben Revere. Byrd greeted Jamey Wright with a bases-loaded two-run single after Wilson (0-2) intentionally walked Chase Utley and hit Ryan Howard with a pitch.

Mike Adams (1-0), making his third appearance after undergoing shoulder surgery last July 31 and missing the first two weeks of the season, pitched two innings for the victory.
