The Atlanta Braves put Chipper Jones and Tim Hudson on the 15-day disabled list, a setback for a team trying to revive its fading hopes in the NL East. General manager Frank Wren sounded as if the Braves will go into Thursday's deadline looking to acquire players who can help the team in 2009 and beyond. First baseman Mark Teixeira, in the final year of his contract and determined to test free agency, is the most likely to be dealt. "The reality of the way things have gone recently and the number of injuries we're battling, I think it paints a pretty clear picture of what we should do and what we need to do," Wren said during a 12-3 loss to visiting St. Louis, which got three RBI from Albert Pujols.

There was no shame in the Marlins clubhouse. "Look who's pitching," Florida rightfielder Cody Ross told reporters. "It's Roy Halladay. He's the best pitcher in baseball. It's not embarrassing. He's a Cy Young award winner. He did exactly what he needed to do tonight. He executed every pitch it seemed like. " Halladay's complete game was the second thrown this season - Oakland's Dallas Braden also did it 20 days earlier. He did it with relative ease as the Marlins had few hard-hit balls off Halladay.

Ryan Braun, Jim Edmonds and the Milwaukee Brewers went totally batty. The visiting Brew Crew piled up 25 hits yesterday and trounced Pittsburgh, 20-0, handing the Pirates the most lopsided loss in their 124-year history. "It was fun and it was special," said Braun, who homered, doubled, singled and drove in five runs. "This game is really so much about failure, particularly as a hitter, that you rarely get a day where everyone is enjoying so much success at the same time. "I've never been involved in a game like this and I likely never will be again.

Hard times away from home San Diego Padres pitcher and former Phillie Randy Wolf, making his first appearance in St. Louis since Aug. 16, 1999, took the loss in yesterday's 6-5 defeat and is now 6-10. This season, the lefthander has had little success away from pitcher-friendly Petco Park, going 1-5 with a 6.63 ERA on the road. The Padres are 1-9 in his 10 road starts. Wolf, who left the Phillies after the 2006 season and signed with the Dodgers as a free agent, was 9-6 with a 4.73 ERA in 18 starts for Los Angeles last year.

A rain delay was worth the wait for Alfredo Amezaga and the Florida Marlins. Amezaga hit a go-ahead, two-run home run in seventh inning when play resumed after a 1 1/2-hour delay, and the Marlins beat the visiting Washington Nationals, 4-2, yesterday. It was only the second home run of the season for Amezaga, who has 11 in 1,106 career at-bats. "When I hit a home run, I don t even know how to act, because I m not used to hitting home runs and guys are not used to seeing home runs from me," Amezaga said.

Aramis Ramirez, Geovany Soto and Kosuke Fukudome had two-run hits in a record-tying first inning and the Chicago Cubs handed the hapless Pittsburgh Pirates their 11th loss in 12 games, 9-4. Chicago tied a major league record with eight consecutive hits to start the game, scoring seven runs before the home team came to bat. No team had done so in 19 years, since the New York Yankees did it against the Baltimore Orioles on Sept. 25, 1990. Micah Hoffpauir hit his ninth homer and Jeff Baker went 3-for-4 for the Cubs, who have won three of four in their quest to stay in the NL wild-card race.

Nick Johnson drove in four runs and the visiting Florida Marlins beat the listless New York Mets, 13-4, last night to gain ground on the National League East-leading Phillies. Hanley Ramirez and Cody Ross each had three hits and two RBI for the Marlins, who completed their first sweep of the Mets since taking four straight Aug. 30-Sept. 2, 2004, in New York. Dan Uggla hit his 27th homer in the third inning. Florida has enjoyed its September trips to New York the last couple of years.

Rick VandenHurk pitched five effective innings, five Florida players had at least one RBI and the Marlins beat the visiting Houston Astros, 8-6, last night for their fourth straight win. John Baker had two RBI, and NL batting leader Hanley Ramirez had two singles and an RBI to help chase starter Brian Moehler (7-8) after five innings. Florida moved within 3 1/2 games of the idle Phillies for the NL East lead. VandenHurk (2-1) struck out four and allowed two runs and five hits.

That new Mets bullpen was no help for Johan Santana yesterday. Cody Ross hit a two-run single off J.J. Putz in the eighth inning, Jorge Cantu cracked his third homer in two games and the visiting Florida Marlins rallied for a 4-3 victory over New York. "We were happy to squeeze one out. The ninth inning is always different, but we got out of it," Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said. Matt Lindstrom escaped a bases-loaded jam by getting pinch-hitter Omir Santos on a game-ending popup.

Barry Bonds' personal trainer was set to be released from prison today, his attorney said, the same day the term of the grand jury investigating the baseball star was to expire. It was unclear if Greg Anderson's expected release would have any bearing on whether indictments were handed up against Bonds. He is being investigated for possible perjury and tax evasion. Attorney Mark Geragos told the Associated Press late last night that he was certain Anderson would be released from jail at noon today.

BRETT ANDERSON gave up two hits, one on a questionable call, over seven innings as the visiting Oakland Athletics beat the Cleveland Indians, 3-0, on Monday night. Oakland came in one-half game behind Tampa Bay in the AL wild-card race and earned its ninth win in 11 games. The Rays lost to Texas, 6-5. The Indians lost starter Roberto Hernandez (0-3) after 2 1/3 innings with a sprained right ankle and fell to 5-24 since July 27. Anderson (2-0), in his second start since returning from Tommy John surgery in July 2011, retired the first 13 batters until Michael Brantley was ruled safe with an infield hit in the fifth inning.

SAN FRANCISCO - Shortly after being scooped up by the Giants last summer, outfielder Cody Ross instantly took a liking to some of San Francisco's exotic French delicacies. "I got hooked on Foie gras," he says. "I ate so much of it I made myself sick. " He eventually swore off the controversial culinary concoction when he learned how the gourmet goose liver was actually made: starting with force-feeding the birds and not ending well for them. "Once I found out what it was, it kind of made it taste a little different," Ross says.

SAN FRANCISCO - There was a time this season when Cody Ross and Jeff Francoeur were buried on the rosters of National League East teams, destined to play baseball through Game No. 162 and go home. When the Florida Marlins and New York Mets went to Puerto Rico for a three-game series at the end of June, the two went to a casino after a game and played blackjack. "Until about 5 in the morning," Francoeur said. "It was just the two of us. " "Next thing you know," Ross said, "we have stacks of chips in front of us. We couldn't lose.

SAN FRANCISCO - Over the past few postseasons, the Phillies have had to contend with some of the top offensive players in the game. Alex Rodriguez. Manny Ramirez. Carl Crawford. Prince Fielder. Ryan Braun. Carlos Gonzalez. And . . . Cody Ross? What he lacks in star power, the scrappy Giants outfielder has more than made up for in isolated power in the first two games of the National League Championship Series. In the Giants' 4-3 win in Game 1, he snapped Roy Halladay's hitless-innings streak at 12 with a home run in the fourth.

CHARLIE MANUEL does it his way. Regrets, he's had a few, but then again, as the song suggests, too few to mention. There was little to regret in last night's 6-1, Game 2 bustout. Oh, maybe a few regrets they haven't thrown Cody Ross more breaking balls. And he's not the one who kept serving fastballs to Ross, who, in two NLCS games, has pounded three home runs and broken up a pair of fledgling no-hitters. What's a manager to do? Do you tell a Roy Halladay or a Roy Oswalt, "I don't care if this guy is at the bottom of their lineup, don't give him anything to hit. At the same time, be aggressive.

WHO IS CODY ROSS? Five things about Cody Ross, who has hit three home runs in the first two games of the NLCS: 1. As a child, Ross wanted to be a rodeo clown if he could not be a baseball player. He is the son of a team roper and steer wrestler and he would dress up with the big red nose and sit in the stands during weekend events across Texas and New Mexico. "In the back of my mind I knew what I wanted to do when I got older and as a career. I wanted to be a professional baseball player," Ross said last week.

How quiet has the Marlins' off-season been? Even major-league baseball has demanded that Florida spend more money on its roster. Florida reached an agreement with MLB and the players' union Tuesday to increase its payroll by using more of its money received from revenue sharing. No one ever accused the Marlins of violating the revenue-sharing rules, which require teams to use that money to improve. Then again, no kind of statement like this has ever been issued by MLB. It's fairly obvious why. Last year, the Marlins' payroll was $36.8 million - dead last in the majors.

Josh Johnson showed why he is one of the top starters in the majors yesterday. Even without his best stuff, the righthander was good enough to shut down the St. Louis Cardinals. Johnson pitched six effective innings to lead the visiting Florida Marlins to a 5-2 victory over the Cardinals. Cody Ross had three hits and drove in two runs for Florida, which has won 10 of 14 to stay in the playoff race. Ross extended his hitting streak to 11 games, the longest current streak in the NL, and was 5-for-12 in the series.
