NEW YORK (AP) -Willy Taveras got five of Colorado's season-high 20 hits and the Rockies snapped out of an offensive drought Wednesday with an 11-5 rout of the New York Mets.

Josh Fogg (1-1) retired his first nine batters and contributed a pair of singles. Mike Pelfrey (0-2) allowed six runs and eight hits in three innings as his ERA rose to 7.90.
Cubs 9, Brewers 3
CHICAGO (AP) - Derrek Lee and Cliff Floyd each got four hits and Chicago stopped a three-game losing streak, improving to 4-9 at Wrigley Field.
After a 71-minute rain delay on a 44-degree afternoon, Brewers ace Ben Sheets pitched three scoreless innings before leaving with a strained right groin.
Chicago took a 5-0 lead in fourth off Elmer Dessens (1-1), and all the runs were unearned because of an error by shortstop J.J. Hardy, who couldn't come up with Jacque Jones' grounder.
