Jones' Pitching, Hitting Lead to 8th Win

Article excerpt

Bobby Jones became the NL's first eight-game winner and had three hits Thursday night as the New York Mets roughed up a weary Curt Schilling in a 10-3 win over the Phillies in Philadelphia.

Jones (8-2) allowed three runs and eight hits in seven innings to win his fifth successive start. The right-hander, who entered the game batting .095, doubled twice, singled and drove in two runs.

The Mets have won nine of 12 and share the same record as the crosstown world champion Yankees, who are also 25-21. Schilling (6-4) lasted only 2 2/3 innings - his shortest outing of the season. He had little sleep because his wife, Shonda, went into labor and finally gave birth to the couple's second child at 6:30 Thursday morning. * Padres 4, Dodgers 1: Pitcher Joey Hamilton homered and Tony Gwynn had three hits off Hideo Nomo as San Diego won at home for its seventh successive win over Los Angeles.

Coming off his seventh NL batting title, Gwynn went three for four, raising his average to .387. * Giants 7, Rockies 2: Mark Gardner pitched six innings to win his fifth successive game as San Francisco beat Colorado, which matched its worst trip in franchise history.

That matched the mark for Colorado's worst trip of 10 or more games set in May 1993, the franchise's inaugural year. (begin THREE STAR text) Pinch-hitter Marvin Benard and Stan Javier had consecutive RBI singles in the sixth as the Giants broke a 2-2 tie. J.T. Snow added a two-run double and Rick Wilkins had an RBI single in the seventh. (end 3* text) Larry Walker went one for four for the Rockies, dropping his NL-leading average to .402. …
