 EDS: TOPS with Nationals-Giants; SHOULD STAND.
By The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Randy Winn singled with the bases loaded and one out in the 11th inning Monday to lead San Francisco to a 3-2 victory over Washington on a night Barry Bonds failed to hit his record 756th home run.
Nationals rookie starter John Lannan held Bonds hitless and left him tied with Hank Aaron. Bonds fouled out to third in the first inning, walked in the third, grounded into a double play in the fifth and struck out in the seventh before leaving the game.
Ryan Klesko started the rally in the 11th with a double off Ray King (1-1). After an intentional walk and hit batsman loaded the bases, Luis Ayala came on and got a fielder's choice before Winn won it with his fourth hit.
Brad Hennessey (2-3) pitched the 11th for the win, stopping the Giants' three-game losing streak and Washington's six-game winning streak.
Lannan allowed one run and eight hits in seven innings. San Francisco rookie Tim Lincecum allowed one run and five hits in seven innings.
Cardinals 10, Padres 5
ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis tied a major league record with 10 consecutive hits in a 10-run fifth inning, with pitcher Braden Looper and Aaron Miles getting two each.
Looper opened the inning with a single and then with the Cardinals up 8-3 bunted for another hit. Miles followed both with singles, the latter driving in a run.
The streak was broken when David Eckstein hit a sacrifice fly and So Taguchi ended the inning by grounding into a double play.
Scott Rolen's three-run homer put St. Louis ahead 7-3 and chased starter David Wells (5-8). Mike Thompson entered, and Ryan Ludwick homered on his first pitch.
The Cardinals ended a five-game losing streak during which they were outscored 41-11 by Pittsburgh and Washington.
Adrian Gonzalez, Geoff Blum and Khalil Greene homered for the Padres, who outscored the opposition 23-9 during their four-game winning streak.
Looper (9-9) allowed four runs and six hits in 6 1-3 innings.
Astros 2, Cubs 1, 10 innings
HOUSTON (AP) - Eric Munson hit an RBI single in the bottom of the 10th to give Houston the victory.
Chicago threatened in the 10th against Brad Lidge (3-1) when Jason Kendall led off with a single, took second on a sacrifice and advanced on a flyout. Lidge struck out Cliff Floyd.
Ty Wigginton was walked by Michael Wuertz (2-3) to start the bottom half. After a sacrifice and a fly out, Wuertz threw a wild pitch and Munson singled to right.
Ryan Theriot doubled twice for the Cubs, who have lost four of five.
Wandy Rodriguez struck out a career-high nine for the Astros, who had lost six of their previous nine. Rodriguez gave up one run and four hits in eight innings.
Cubs starter Rich Hill allowed one run and three hits in seven innings.
Rockies 6, Brewers 2
DENVER (AP) - Brad Hawpe and Matt Holliday homered to lead Colorado over Milwaukee, which has lost 10 of 14 games but still lead the NL Central by one game over Chicago.
Prince Fielder hit his league-leading 33rd homer and Ryan Braun also connected for Milwaukee.
The Rockies scored four runs off Claudio Vargas (9-4) in the first inning. Todd Helton singled in a run and Hawpe hit a three-run homer, his 19th of the season.
Vargas gave up six runs and 12 hits in seven innings.
Fielder homered in the second but Holliday responded with a two-run drive in the bottom half.

Josh Fogg (6-7) went seven innings for the Rockies, allowing six hits and two runs.
