NEW YORK (AP) _ Tom Glavine carried a perfect game into the sixth and allowed one run over seven-plus innings to lead the New York Mets past the slumping Houston Astros 3-1 on Saturday.
David Wright matched his career high with his 27th homer for Major League Baseball's National League East Division-leading Mets, who have won seven of eight to improve to a season best 19 games above .500. Paul Lo Duca had an RBI double and Luis Castillo scored on a wild pitch.
Houston has lost six of its last seven.
Phillies 9, Marlins 1
In Philadelphia, Greg Dobbs tied the game with a two-out triple in the fourth and Chris Coste lined the next offering from Florida starter Rick VandenHurk into the left-field seats as the Phillies snapped a two-game losing streak.
Clay Condrey (5-0), who has spent the season shuttling back-and-forth to minor-league Ottawa, pitched 2 1-3 innings of relief to earn the victory. He now has as many wins as stints with the big league club this season.
Dodgers 6, Giants 2
In San Francisco, David Wells took a perfect game into the sixth inning and Luis Gonzalez hit a three-run homer in the first, leading the Dodgers past the Giants.
Kevin Frandsen's one-out single to left in the sixth broke up Boomer's bid. Scott McClain then reached on a fielder's choice in his Giants debut and scored on an error when Shea Hillenbrand's wild throw hit McClain as he rounded second on Rajai Davis' single.
Rookie Nate Schierholtz followed with an RBI triple to make it 3-2.
