Jeff Kent, in a 1-for-26 slump, doubled in a run, Rafael Furcal hit a two-run double and Russell Martin hit his fourth homer in his last five starts as the Dodgers took three of four in Pittsburgh. They have won nine of 12.
Lowe (6-5) didn't allow anything resembling a hit until Freddy Sanchez singled up the middle with no out in the seventh, though Furcal did make an excellent play at short to get Jose Bautista to end the sixth.
Paul Maholm (2-8) took the loss.
Marlins 6, Braves 4
ATLANTA (AP) - The Florida Marlins scored four runs off Tim Hudson during a strange fifth inning and went on to beat the Braves.
Wes Obermueller (2-3) hung around long enough for the win, giving up eight hits and three runs in five innings.
Florida sent eight hitters to the plate against Hudson (6-4) in the fifth, benefiting from a couple of walks, an error by left fielder Willie Harris and a strikeout that didn't result in an out.
Giants 8, Phillies 1
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Barry Zito allowed only an unearned run over six innings and Ryan Klesko hit a three-run homer to lead the Giants over the Phillies.
Zito (6-5) pitched out of trouble throughout the afternoon to win his third straight start.
Barry Bonds was 0-for-4 with two strikeouts and a walk to remain at 746 career homers, 10 shy of breaking Hank Aaron's record. After homering 11 times in his first 76 at-bats, the Giants slugger has only one home run in 61 at-bats since connecting May 8.
Jon Lieber (2-4) allowed five runs and 10 hits in five-plus innings. He's allowed 14 runs and 29 hits in three starts after posting a 2.50 ERA in his first six.
