WASHINGTON (AP) — Ross Detwiler allowed four hits in seven shutout innings and Adam LaRoche homered Monday, giving the Washington Nationals their first winning season with a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs.


The NL East-leading Nationals improved to 82-52. The club moved from Montreal to Washington for the 2005 season and went 81-81 that year. In 2008 and 2009, the team lost a combined 205 games, then finished 80-81 in 2011.


Phillies 4, Reds 2

CINCINNATI — Jimmy Rollins hit a three-run homer off Johnny Cueto during a cloudburst that sent fans scurrying for cover, leading Philadelphia over Cincinnati.


Rookie right-hander Tyler Cloyd (1-1) got his first major league hit and win. He singled ahead of Rollins' homer to extend the inning. The 25-year-old gave up four hits, including Jay Bruce's 30th homer, and struck out nine in seven innings.

PITTSBURGH — Brett Wallace had three hits, including a three-run homer, to lift Houston past struggling Pittsburgh.


Cardinals 5, Mets 4

ST. LOUIS — Rookie Joe Kelly pitched 6 2-3 effective innings and also doubled, and St. Louis held off New York.


Kelly (5-6) allowed five hits and two runs. He made his second start after a brief stint in the bullpen, and turned in his longest outing of the season.


Braves 6, Rockies 1

ATLANTA — Kris Medlen struck out a career-high 12 to lead Atlanta over Colorado.


Medlen (7-1) allowed five hits without a walk in his second complete game of the season. He extended his streak of scoreless innings to 34 2-3 — the Braves' longest since Greg Maddux in 2000 — before the Rockies scored an unearned run in the seventh.


Marlins 7, Brewers 3
