 PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Humberto Quintero and Ryan Howard hit home runs to give Cliff Lee a five-run cushion, and the Philadelphia Phillies held on for a 5-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night.
Dan Uggla hit a three-run shot, and the Braves snapped Lee's streak of 11 straight games pitching at least seven innings and allowing three earned runs or less.
But Lee (10-2) still won his eighth straight decision. He allowed four runs and eight hits in 6 1-3 innings. J.C. Ramirez and Antonio Bastardo combined for five outs. Jonathan Papelbon finished for his 18th save in 22 tries.
Right fielder John Mayberry Jr. helped Papelbon with a sliding catch on Brian McCann's sinking liner for the second out.
Paul Maholm (9-7) gave up five runs - four earned - and nine hits in six innings. Tim Hudson was scheduled to start for the Braves, but he was pushed back one day because of a stiff neck.
PIRATES 6, CUBS 2
CHICAGO (AP) - Francisco Liriano pitched a four-hitter for his first complete game in more than two years, and Pittsburgh beat Chicago for its 11th win in 13 games.
Liriano (8-3) went the distance for the first time since he tossed a no-hitter for Minnesota against the White Sox on May 3, 2011. He struck out seven and walked four to improve 5-1 in his last six starts. He also had an RBI single.
The Pirates, meanwhile, continue to roll. They came in with the best record in the majors and a two-game lead over St. Louis in the NL Central, and they had little trouble with Jeff Samardzija (5-8) and the Cubs.
Starling Marte had three hits, scored two runs and stole two bases for the Pirates.
NATIONALS 8, PADRES 5
WASHINGTON (AP) - Wilson Ramos drove in three runs, Gio Gonzalez won his third straight start and Washington defeated San Diego for its second straight win.
Jayson Werth had three hits and Denard Span added a two-run double for Washington.
Ramos has driven in eight runs in two games since coming off the disabled list on Thursday.
Chase Headley homered, doubled and drove in two runs, and Carlos Quentin had a three-run homer for the Padres, who've lost seven straight.
Gonzalez (6-3) went 6 2-3 innings, allowing three runs and eight hits while striking out five and walking one.
Padres starter Andrew Cashner (5-4) had his worst start of this season, lasting just two innings while giving up six runs and five hits. He had three walks and no strikeouts.
CARDINALS 4, MARLINS 1
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jake Westbrook worked seven strong innings and Allen Craig had two RBIs for a lineup that spoiled Jacob Turner's homecoming early on in St. Louis' victory over Miami.
Matt Holliday doubled twice with an RBI and Edward Mujica rebounded with the save for the Cardinals, who had lost eight of 11 and plummeted from the majors' best record to second place in the NL Central entering a five-game homestand.
The Marlins totaled three hits and lost for just the third time in 11 games.
The hard-throwing Turner (2-1), a former first-round pick from suburban St. Charles, Mo., and confidant of Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, surrendered four runs on seven hits in six innings. The 22-year-old entered with a 1.76 ERA his first six starts of the year and threw his first career complete game his last time out.
INTERLEAGUE
MARINERS 4, REDS 2
CINCINNATI (AP) - Aaron Harang pitched six innings in the ballpark where he still holds the strikeout record, and Nick Franklin and Michael Saunders homered to lead Seattle over Cincinnati in the Mariners' first to Great American Ball Park.
Harang (4-7) limited his former team to a pair of runs and six hits, including Joey Votto's 15th homer. Oliver Perez struck out the side in the ninth for his second save.
Franklin hit a two-run homer off Mike Leake (7-4), who had his start pushed back one day by a rainout. Saunders had a solo homer and a sacrifice fly off Leake, who lasted five innings.
