The Braves' Omar Infante tracks his three-run homerin the fourth inning of Atlanta's 16-5 win at Chicago.

The loss left the Cubs at 51-74. Since the Phillies also won, Atlanta's lead in the NL East continued to be 21/2 games.

Braves starter Mike Minor (2-0) set a team rookie record by striking out 12 in six innings. The lefty allowed three runs and seven hits.

"He was pretty much dominating today," said Braves manager Bobby Cox, who is retiring after this season and had his last game at Wrigley Field. "Minor has a great idea how to pitch. We knew that when we drafted him."

Heyward and Infante each finished with four hits, drove in four runs, and scored four times. Atlanta was leading by 5-3 before the Braves scored four runs in the seventh, five in the eighth, and two in the ninth.

"The four hits is the best I've done all year. That shows something," Heyward said.

The Cubs have lost six of their last seven. Randy Wells (5-12) took the loss.

Rookie Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro finished 4 for 5 with two doubles.

Pirates 2, Mets 1

PITTSBURGH - A slumping Zach Duke limited the Mets to one run over seven innings, and Jose Tabata and Lastings Milledge homered, allowing Pittsburgh to salvage the final game of the three-game series by beating New York.

Duke, who lost eight of his previous 11 starts, struck out five and walked two to win for just the third time in 13 starts since May 18.

The Pirates, trying to dodge their first 100-loss season since 2001, had lost five in a row and 12 of 13 to fall 43 games below .500 at 40-83.

Rockies 1, Diamondbacks 0

PHOENIX - Dexter Fowler hit a run-scoring single in the eighth inning and Jhoulys Chacin pitched 72/3 strong innings to lead Colorado over Arizona.

Fowler also helped Chacin with a diving catch in center field that took away a hit from Adam LaRoche in the fourth. Fowler landed hard on his left side but held on to the ball. He was shaken up briefly but remained in the game.

Eric Young singled with one out in the eighth off Arizona reliever Aaron Heilman (4-5) and stole second base before Fowler's hit.
