PITTSBURGH — Wandy Rodriguez allowed just two hits over 6 innings and Pittsburgh earned its first win of the year.

Andrew McCutchen smacked an RBI double for the Pirates. Starling Marte and Gaby Sanchez also drove in a run, more than enough for Rodriguez on a frigid night.

BRAVES 9, PHILLIES 2: At Atlanta, Justin Upton, Jason Heyward and rookie Evan Gattis homered, while Paul Maholm earned the win.

NATIONALS 3, MARLINS 0: At Washington, left-hander Gio Gonzalez homered, providing all the offense necessary to back his six scoreless innings.

METS 8, PADRES 4: At New York, Matt Harvey allowed one hit and struck out 10 in seven scoreless innings for his first win at Citi Field, and Lucas Duda hit the first of the Mets' three homers in a whipping wind.

ROCKIES 7, BREWERS 3: At Milwaukee, Juan Nicasio pitched six effective innings for his first victory in almost a year while Wilin Rosario, Michael Cuddyer and Dexter Fowler homered for Colorado.

GIANTS 5, DODGERS 3: At Los Angeles, Tim Lincecum walked seven, matching a career worst, yet still managed to get the win when Pablo Sandoval and Hunter Pence homered.
