PHILADELPHIA - David Wright had an RBI single with two outs in the 14th inning, leading the New York Mets to a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in the second straight marathon game between the teams.

New York needed 5 hours, 32 minutes to win this one after losing to the Phillies 6-5 in a 14-inning game Friday night that took 5:23 to complete.

The Phillies and Mets have played 37 innings in three games with two more still to play in the rare five-game series.

Buddy Carlyle (1-0), who was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas prior to the game as an emergency arm after the Mets used eight pitchers on Friday. He tossed three scoreless innings to earn his first big league win since June 25, 2008.

The Mets went without a hit in extra innings until Wright's knock off Antonio Bastardo (3-3). Bastardo walked Ruben Tejada to start the 14th, and Tejada went to second on Juan Lagares' sacrifice bunt. After Daniel Murphy popped out, Wright lined a single to left to score Tejada.

BRAVES 9, MARLINS 5

MIAMI (AP) — Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman each drove in a pair of runs to help lead the Braves to a win over the Marlins.

Ervin Santana (5-2) won for the first time since May 10 against the Cubs as he allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings. He struck out four.

Craig Kimbrel got the last two outs for his 15th save of the season, which tied him with John Smoltz for the most saves in franchise history with 154.

Derek Dietrich and Casey McGehee each drove in two runs and Christian Yelich had three hits for the Marlins.

Jacob Turner (1-3) took the loss allowing five runs_four earned— in five innings. Six Miami pitchers combined to walk nine batters.

CUBS 8, BREWERS 0

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Anthony Rizzo hit two two-run homers and Jason Hammel tossed seven strong innings, lifting the Cubs over the Brewers.

Both of Rizzo's homers came on full-count pitches and went deep to right, the second one into the second deck to give the Cubs a four-run lead in the sixth.

It was more than enough support for Hammel (6-3), who frustrated the Brewers by mixing a fastball in the low 90s with a tough slider. He allowed just four hits while striking out a season-high eight to help Chicago snap a three-game losing streak.

The Cubs chased Brewers starter Wily Peralta (4-5) in the five-run sixth that started with a single from Hammel, who later scored on Rizzo's homer.

CARDINALS 2, GIANTS 0

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Michael Wacha worked six innings of three-hit ball in his fifth rain-delayed start of the season and Oscar Taveras homered in his second career at-bat for the Cardinals in a victory over the Giants.

Yusmeiro Petit (3-3) gave up two hits in six innings for the Giants, but one of them was Taveras' 418-foot drive in the fifth. Petit subbed for injured Matt Cain, placed on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury, for the second straight start.

The Cardinals have piled up 6 hours, 30 minutes of idle time in Wacha's starts, with delays of 51 and 47 minutes Saturday. The total includes a 61-minute weather delay before the first pitch against the Yankees his last start for a storm that failed to materialize, and the Cardinals lost in 12 innings.

DODGERS 12, PIRATES 2

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hanley Ramirez homered twice, drove in five runs and scored four times, tying career highs in all three categories and leading the Dodgers to a rout of the Pirates.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (6-2) breezed to his third straight victory, allowing two runs and 10 hits with four strikeouts and no walks.

Jamey Wright was credited with his second save in 19 major league seasons, after pitching the final three innings and allowing one hit. His other save was in 2011 with Seattle.

Brandon Cumpton (0-2) was charged with 11 runs — 10 earned — and 11 hits in 3 2-3 innings.

REDS 5, DIAMONDBACKS 0

PHOENIX (AP) — Johnny Cueto pitched effectively into the eighth inning and the Reds gave him some rare run support in a win over the Diamondbacks.

The Diamondbacks lost centerfielder A.J. Pollock to a broken right hand after he was hit swinging at a pitch by Cueto in the eighth inning.

The Reds have had trouble hitting with Cueto (5-4) on the mound this season, but followed Friday's big offensive night by scoring all five runs off Diamondbacks starter Brandon McCarthy (1-7).

Cueto allowed five hits and struck out seven in 7 2-3 innings, and Jonathan Broxton escaped a bases-loaded jam in the eighth.

Brandon Phillips had a pair of run-scoring singles off McCarthy and the Reds had 11 hits to win for the third time in four games.

NATIONALS 10, RANGERS 2

WASHINGTON (AP) — Anthony Rendon went 4 for 5 and hit one of four Washington home runs, and Doug Fister allowed four hits in six innings as the Nationals routed the Rangers.

Adam LaRoche, Jose Lobaton, and pinch-hitter Scott Hairston also homered in Washington's offensive surge.

The Nationals have racked up 24 runs and 42 hits in their last three games, winning two straight to climb back to .500.

Rendon had six straight hits over two games before striking out in the ninth.

Fister (3-1) allowed two runs and retired the first 10 Texas batters. He's 3-0 with a 2.13 ERA in his last four starts, with 21 strikeouts and two walks.

Rangers starter Nick Tepesch (2-1) allowed five runs, four earned, on seven hits. He had won two straight decisions, but didn't make it past the second inning Saturday.
