NEW YORK – Omir Santos hit a game-ending RBI single in the 11th inning and homered in the fifth in the New York Mets’ 2-1 victory over Florida on Friday night.

Gary Sheffield led off the 11th with a single to left off Brian Sanches (1-1), who threw over to first several times to check on the aging slugger with David Wright up. After Wright struck out – smashing his bat when he reached the dugout – Sheffield stole second and went to third when John Baker’s throw went into center field.

Fernando Tatis was hit by a pitch before Santos dumped Sanches’ first pitch into left field to give New York its fourth consecutive win and sixth in seven games.

Pedro Feliciano (2-1) got one out to earn the win.

Cubs 2, Dodgers 1

CHICAGO – Koyie Hill homered and Kosuke Fukudome hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the seventh inning for Chicago.

Chicago’s Ted Lilly (6-4) and Los Angeles’ Chad Billingsley (6-3) each opened with six scoreless innings.

Matt Kemp homered with two outs in the top of the seventh for the Dodgers. The Cubs bounced back in the bottom half and ended Los Angeles’ four-game winning streak.

Kevin Gregg pitched the ninth, and held on for his eighth save in nine chances.

Phillies 5, Nationals 4

PHILADELPHIA – Shane Victorino had four hits and Philadelphia tied a season high with 16 hits.

Jimmy Rollins had two hits and two RBIs, Raul Ibanez, Jayson Werth, Pedro Feliz and Carlos Ruiz also each had two hits, and every Philadelphia position starter had at least one. The Phillies stranded 13 runners.

J.A. Happ (3-0) was the winner, and Brad Lidge pitched a scoreless ninth for his 10th save. Ross Detwiler (0-1) took the loss.

Brewers 3, Reds 2

MILWAUKEE – Corey Hart and Prince Fielder homered and Braden Looper (5-3) outpitched Johnny Cueto to help Milwaukee snap Cincinnati’s winning streak at four.

The Brewers, who had hit .204 with just two homers while going 1-5 in their last six games, only had three hits, but two of them left the ballpark. Hart’s go-ahead homer came in the seventh inning came after Fielder hit a two-run shot in the first.

Ramon Hernandez hit a two-run homer for the Reds in the fourth.

Trevor Hoffman allowed a two-out single, but recorded his 12th consecutive save since joining the Brewers. Cueto dropped to 4-3.

Astros 6, Pirates 1

PITTSBURGH – Brian Moehler pitched his first complete game in nearly nine years, and rookie Edwin Maysonet homered while going 4 for 4 and driving in four runs, helping Houston end a seven-game losing streak.

Moehler (2-3), who had a 27.00 ERA in his two most recent starts in PNC Park, was two outs away from his first shutout in almost 10 years, or since Aug. 30, 1999, until the Pirates scored on Jason Jaromillo’s run-scoring grounder in the ninth.

Ross Ohlendorf (5-5) was the loser.
