Major Leagues: National League Roundup

Associated Press
The National League roundup …
ATLANTA ó Dan Uggla is starting to feel like a legitimate slugger again.
Uggla hit a three-run homer against his former team for the second straight night, helping Tim Hudson and the Atlanta Braves beat the Florida Marlins 5-1 on Saturday.
“I was just staying positive,” said Uggla, who is heating up after a terrible start this season. “This is what I’m used to doing. It’s one of those things, you get a couple to fall, your confidence kicks in a little bit, you start to feel comfortable, then you’re you again, I guess.”
Hudson (10-7) pitched seven crisp innings, allowing one run and six hits. The right-hander improved to 10-4 with a 2.97 ERA in 21 career starts against Florida.
Uggla connected against Anibal Sanchez (6-4) in the third inning, belting his 20th homer to extend his career-best hitting streak to 21 games. He is batting .295 this month, raising his average for the season to .206.
Phillies 7, Pirates 4
PHILADELPHIA ó Hunter Pence got one hit in his first game with Philadelphia and still made a huge impact for the Phillies. With Pence batting behind him, Ryan Howard had four hits, including a homer and two doubles, and three RBIs to lead the Phillies to a 7-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Nationals 3, Mets 0
WASHINGTON ó Yunesky Maya was officially called up from Triple-A Syracuse and pitched 51/3 scoreless innings in a 3-0 victory over the New York Mets.
Reds 7, Giants 2
CINCINNATI ó The Cincinnati Reds tscored five first-inning runs on their way to a 7-2 win over the San Francisco Giants.
Brewers 6, Astros 2
MILWAUKEE ó Prince Fielder hit a 475-foot home run, Yovani Gallardo tossed seven effective innings and the surging Brewers beat the Houston Astros 6-2 for their fifth consecutive victory.
Cardinals 13, Cubs 5
ST. LOUIS ó Ryan Theriot, who broke a 2-for-38 slump with two hits after coming in as a pinch-hitter Friday, rapped four hits and drove in three runs.
Rockies 10, Padres 6.
SAN DIEGO ó Ubaldo Jimenez was pulled after one rocky inning Saturday night as the Rockies agreed to deal their ace to Cleveland, then Colorado rallied to beat the San Diego Padres 10-6.
Eliezer Alfonzo hit a grand slam and drove in a career-high five runs for the Rockies.
JIMENEZ TRADE
SAN DIEGO ó Rockies right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez said he was traded to the Cleveland Indians ó shortly after he pitched one inning for Colorado at San Diego on Saturday night.
Jimenez, who allowed four runs on two hits with four walks and two strikeouts, said he was surprised he even pitched in the game.
