Brewers 8, Marlins 6
At Milwaukee, Rickie Weeks homered for the third straight game and the Brewers rallied again, benefiting from an umpires' video replay reversal.
Marlins pinch-hitter Ross Gload apparently hit a two-run homer down the right-field line off Braden Looper in the sixth inning that would've cut Milwaukee's lead to 8-7.
But first base umpire Bruce Dreckman's call was reversed after a video replay, the first at Miller Park since baseball adopted the system late last August.
It was the second home run taken away by replay Wednesday night. Hours earlier, Pittsburgh's Adam LaRoche became the first player to lose one.
Cubs 6, Padres 4, 7 1/2 innings
At Chicago, Alfonso Soriano hit his 53rd career leadoff homer and the Cubs won a rain-shortened game.
Soriano moved into a tie for second place on the all-time list with Craig Biggio. Ryan Theriot added two homers and Geovany Soto went deep for the first time this season in a game that was stopped following a 58-minute delay before the bottom of the eighth.
Astros 15, Rockies 11
At Denver, Lance Berkman went 4 for 4 and the Astros finished with 24 hits.
Berkman drove in two runs and scored three times for the Astros, who were one hit shy of their franchise record for a nine-inning game set against Atlanta on May 30, 1976. Geoff Blum matched his career high with five RBIs.
Mike Hampton (2-3) was the beneficiary of all the run support.
Reds 10, Diamondbacks 3
At Phoenix, Brandon Phillips drove in four runs and the Reds completed a three-game sweep
Gerardo Parra homered in his first major league at-bat, but Arizona could muster little offense beyond that against Johnny Cueto.
Willy Taveras singled three times, scoring twice, to extend his hitting streak to 14 games and Jerry Hairston Jr. doubled and tripled as the Reds won for the sixth time in seven games to climb a season-best six games above .500.
