Atlanta 5, Chicago Cubs 1

(Atlanta, Ga.) -- For the first four innings, Tim Hudson wondered if Jeff Samardzija would be too tough to beat. Luckily for Hudson, the hard-throwing Samardzija began having control problems, and the Atlanta Braves took advantage of the situation.

Hudson pitched six-plus strong innings and added an RBI and Ramiro Pena hit a two-run single to help the Braves beat the Chicago Cubs 5-1 Sunday.

St. Louis 14, San Francisco 3

(San Franscisco) -- Matt Cain was one of the first Giants to receive his World Series championship ring during a pregame ceremony near home plate. San Francisco's ace wasn't on the field much longer.

Cain became the first Giants pitcher since 1902 to allow nine runs in an inning when Matt Carpenter and the St. Louis Cardinals tagged him in a 14-3 romp over San Francisco on Sunday. It was Cain's shortest since June 24, 2010, while the nine runs _ all of them earned _ matched a career-high for runs allowed by the right-hander. St. Louis also scored nine runs in 3 2-3 innings against Cain on April 18, 2008.

Chicago White Sox 4, Seattle 3

(Chicago) -- The Chicago White Sox are enjoying their homer-happy start.

Dayan Viciedo hit a solo home run with one out in the 10th inning Sunday, lifting the Chicago White Sox over the Seattle Mariners 4-3.

Viciedo hit the first game-ending homer of his career, connecting against Kameron Loe (1-1).

Alex Rios homered in his career-best third straight game and Adam Dunn also homered for Chicago, which won two out of three in the series.
