Xavier Nady drove in Nyjer Morgan with a 10th-inning single and Pittsburgh beat host Atlanta, 4-3, last night. The Braves used seven pitchers after Mike Hampton's much-anticipated comeback was postponed by a chest injury suffered in pregame warmups. Jeff Bennett started in Hampton's place. Hampton, scheduled to make his first start since Aug. 19, 2005, strained his left pectoral muscle while warming up in the bullpen. The Braves' lefthander was listed as day-to-day. Hampton's absence forced the Braves (1-3)

Curt Schilling has been so good for so long, the Arizona Diamondbacks usually don't get overly excited when he makes an exceptional start. This time, they did. Schilling limited slumping Pittsburgh to four singles in his first shutout in more than a year and the visiting Diamondbacks beat the Pirates, 5-0, last night. Rod Barajas drove in Arizona's first two runs and Junior Spivey hit a three-run homer as the Pirates lost their seventh straight. Schilling (2-2) was much better than he was Saturday against Atlanta, when he allowed five runs and eight hits in five innings in his first start since April 17. He was out for 2 1/2 weeks after his appendix was removed April 19. Retiring 16 of the first 17 batters, Schilling (2-2)

A little more than 7 hours after he put on his Buffalo Bisons jersey, Ike Davis stood on first base at Citi Field in a New York Mets uniform holding the ball from his first big-league hit. What a day. Called from Triple A at around noon to help the slumping Mets, the top prospect had two hits and an RBI in his debut, a 6-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs last night. "It's great, especially being up here and getting a win, it's awesome," said Davis, who was welcomed after the game with a shaving-cream pie in the face.

Reyes returns for Mets Do you think Jose Reyes was eager to get back into New York's lineup? The Mets shortstop arrived at Citi Field about 8:20 a.m. Saturday, about five hours before the first pitch, and made himself at home in his corner of the clubhouse, the Associated Press reported. Reyes, 26, got a base hit that nearly sparked a ninth-inning rally and made an error at shortstop that nearly cost the Mets a run. "I was a little anxious," he admitted afterward.

Outstanding performances by Oliver Perez and David Wright put the New York Mets in position to win. This time, their shaky bullpen held on. Perez outpitched Dodgers ace Brad Penny, and the Mets got a dazzling all-around effort from Wright in a 5-2 victory over visiting Los Angeles last night that helped increase their NL East lead to six games. Wright homered, drove in two runs and made a pair of marvelous defensive plays at third base. Ruben Gotay hit an RBI double in the first inning, and New York's relievers bounced back from a rough series against San Diego.

Tom Glavine earned his 297th win, pitching one-hit ball for six innings in a rain-shortened shutout to lead the New York Mets past the visiting St. Louis Cardinals, 2-0, last night. David Wright hit a two-run homer off winless Anthony Reyes in the first, and the NL East leaders made it stand up for their fifth victory in six games. Scott Rolen's second-inning infield single was the only hit off Glavine (7-5), who walked two and struck out one in his 25th shutout. After walking Aaron Miles with two outs in the second, Glavine retired his final 13 batters.

Barry Bonds sat down in the dugout to address the media swarm for Opening Day, then realized he'd forgotten his own tape recorder and ran back to the clubhouse to retrieve it. "Can you all wait?" he said with a smile yesterday before the San Francisco Giants hosted the San Diego Padres. "You all got some patience? I'll be baaack!" He needed the device in case he decided later to post anything from the interview on his Web site, www.barrybonds.com. Bonds was light and breezy before the game on a glorious day that perfectly matched the slugger's mood.

The Pittsburgh Pirates lost four minor league players yesterday, two because of positive tests for performance-enhancing drugs and two due to a revised military policy. Major League Baseball announced 50-game suspensions for righthanders Roman Carrasco and Luis Figuera, who tested positive for anabolic steroids. That span will carry through the end of the organization's Venezuelan Summer League team's season and into early next season. Outfielder Cole White and catcher Chris Simmons both will be forced to leave the Pirates' short-season Class A affiliate in State College, Pa., after the U.S. Army revised its interpretation of the U.S. Department of Defense's policy on allowing cadets to pursue professional sports careers.

Jeff Karstens has given the Pittsburgh Pirates a perfect start. Almost a perfect game, too. The recently acquired righthander set down his first 23 batters before Chris Young's two-out double in the eighth inning and finished with a two-hitter yesterday in a 2-0 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix. "We knew what he was capable of doing," Pirates manager John Russell said. "We had very good reports on him. The biggest thing is he throws strikes. That's a great asset for any pitcher.

The Pittsburgh Pirates capped a busy day with a 3-0 win over the visiting Chicago Cubs last night. Ross Ohlendorf (7-6) pitched seven innings and Freddy Sanchez got the Pirates going by scoring from second on a ball that bounded only a few feet from home plate during the fourth inning. Sanchez went 3-for-3, reached base four times and drove in two runs for the Pirates. Before the game, Pittsburgh sent starting leftfielder Nyjer Morgan to the Washington Nationals in a four-player deal involving outfielder Lastings Milledge and also shipped backup Eric Hinske to the Yankees.

Nothing special about Joey Votto's first homer, a hanging slider that he pulled into the seats in rightfield for a modest 1-0 lead. What followed was breathtaking. Jon Lieber became only the second pitcher in Chicago Cubs history to give up four homers in an inning, and Votto connected three times in all as the host Cincinnati Reds powered their way to a 9-0 victory yesterday. "I'm like a kid," said Votto, a second-year player who had never hit more than one in a game.

John Smoltz became the 16th pitcher in major league history to reach 3,000 career strikeouts, but was outpitched by John Lannan in the Washington Nationals' 6-0 win over the host Atlanta Braves last night. Smoltz fanned Felipe Lopez in the third inning, the veteran hurler's fourth of the game, to reach the mark. He struck out 10 for the second straight start and for the 45th time in his 20-year career. Lannan (1-2), a rookie, allowed five hits in seven innings and the Nationals snapped a three-game losing streak.
