 MIAMI (AP) - Evan Gattis drove in two runs to highlight Atlanta's highest-scoring inning in more than a month, and the Braves snapped a four-game slide by beating Miami 5-2 on Monday night.
Justin Upton, Freddie Freeman and Gattis all doubled to lead off what became a five-run fourth, Atlanta's biggest inning since a five-run fifth against Philadelphia on Aug. 2. Kris Medlen (13-12) was the beneficiary that night against the Phillies and again on Monday, getting the win after allowing six hits and two runs in 6 1-3 innings.
Atlanta (86-57) passed idle Boston (87-58) for baseball's best record.
Chris Coghlan tied a career high with four hits for Miami, which lost for the 24th time in its last 34 games. Ed Lucas added a two-run double in the seventh for the Marlins.
Marlins starter Henderson Alvarez (3-4) gave up no hits in the first three innings, before Atlanta got to him in the fourth.
Craig Kimbrel worked the ninth for his 45th save in 48 tries. Atlanta has not lost more than four straight at any point this season.
CUBS 2, REDS 0
CINCINNATI (AP) - Travis Wood beat Cincinnati for the first time in his career, repeatedly pitching out of threats for seven innings.
Wood (9-11) finally beat the team that traded him after the 2011 season. He was 0-4 in his career, including three losses this season. He allowed six hits and fanned seven.
Kevin Gregg gave up a double in the ninth while earning his 31st save in 35 chances.
Ryan Sweeney and Luis Valbuena homered off Bronson Arroyo (13-11), who had won his last four starts against the Cubs. Arroyo allowed seven hits over seven innings, striking out six.
The Reds were coming off a week when they got six wins in seven games against St. Louis and the NL West-leading Dodgers.
Cincinnati is 13-4 against the Cubs this season. Overall, Cincinnati has won 12 of its last 15 and 22 of its last 27 against Chicago.
NATIONALS 9, METS 0
NEW YORK (AP) - Gio Gonzalez was inches from a no-hitter and Washington hit five home runs in the rout.
Gonzalez (10-6) held the overmatched Mets hitless into the seventh before pinch-hitter Zach Lutz broke up the bid with a soft single for New York's only hit. Lutz swung at the first pitch of the inning and hit a looper that landed on the first base line, taking out a chunk of chalk well behind the bag.
The left-hander struck out eight and walked two for his second career shutout and fourth complete game, improving to 5-0 in his last six starts against the Mets.
Denard Span and Ryan Zimmerman hit back-to-back homers to start the game. Jayson Werth and Tyler Moore also connected off Carlos Torres (3-4), roughed up by Washington for the second time in six weeks. Wilson Ramos added a three-run shot off reliever Greg Burke.
The Nationals won their third straight and fifth in six games.
