 ATLANTA (AP) -Mark Teixeira hit a three-run homer and drove in four runs in his Atlanta debut Wednesday night, leading the Braves to a 12-3 victory over Houston.
Teixeira, acquired from Texas in a seven-player trade on Tuesday, walked with the bases loaded in the first.
After Houston reliever Matt Albers walked Edgar Renteria and Chipper Jones in the sixth, Teixeira hit his first homer with the Braves and his 14th overall.
The Braves scored a combined 38 runs in three straight wins, including 24 in winning two straight over the Astros.
Houston has given up 42 runs in three straight losses.
Buddy Carlyle (6-3) gave up five hits and two runs in five innings and left the game after experiencing apparent discomfort while warming up in the sixth.
Wandy Rodriguez (7-10) gave up eight runs and six hits. He walked four batters and threw 55 pitches in Atlanta's seven-run first inning.
Marlins 4, Rockies 3
MIAMI (AP) - Byung-Hyun Kim survived a 37-pitch first inning and had a career-high 10 strikeouts to lead Florida.
Kim (6-5) needed 126 pitches to make it through 5 1-3 innings. He walked six, hit a batter, threw a wild pitch and allowed the Rockies to steal four bases. The Rockies stranded 14 runners and struck out a season-high 16 times.
Florida's Miguel Cabrera had three hits, including his 26th homer. Josh Willingham had three hits and drove in the go-ahead run for the Marlins, who won for the second time in nine games.
Josh Fogg (5-7) allowed eight hits and four runs, three earned, in five-plus innings. Fogg was pitching on nine days' rest after his last scheduled start was rained out.
Colorado's Willy Taveras reached four times and stole a career-high three bases.
Pirates 15, Cardinals 1
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ronny Paulino hit a grand slam in the first inning and Tony Armas won as a starter for the first time in more than 10 months to carry Pittsburgh.
Armas (1-3) limited the Cardinals to Aaron Miles' first home run over 6 1-3 innings for his first victory since signing with Pittsburgh last winter.
He gave up four hits, struck out five and walked one.
Pittsburgh had season highs in runs (15) and hits (20), scoring seven runs in the eighth against Mike Maroth. It was the Pirates most lopsided victory since June 11, 2005, when they beat Tampa Bay 18-2.
The Cardinals were denied their first five-game winning streak since they won seven straight in July 2006. The Pirates had dropped their last four and seven of eight and were 2-14 since the All-Star break.
Braden Looper (8-9) pitched four innings, allowing seven runs and eight hits. He hasn't won consecutive starts since winning May.
Nationals 7, Reds 2
WASHINGTON (AP) - John Lannan, ejected from his big league debut last week in the fifth inning after hitting consecutive batters, took a shutout into the sixth for Washington.
Lannan (1-0) went 5 2-3 innings, allowing two runs and five singles. The rookie left-hander left after giving up RBI singles to Ken Griffey - whose hit snapped an 0-for-14 drought - and Adam Dunn in the sixth.
Bronson Arroyo (4-12) was lifted after allowing seven runs in 1 2-3 innings, the shortest start of his eight-year career.
Washington batted around in the first inning, scoring four runs on five hits, including doubles by Felipe Lopez and Austin Kearns and a two-run single by Ryan Church. In the second, Ronnie Belliard hit an RBI double and Kearns hit a two-run homer.
