CHICAGO – The Cincinnati Reds used a lot of little hits to achieve a very big milestone.

Cincinnati rapped out 12 hits — including nine singles — and cruised to a 9-4 win over the Chicago Cubs on Friday for the 10,000th win in franchise history.

“When you look at 30 different teams and being one of six, it’s a pretty cool thing,” said outfielder Drew Stubbs. “To be a part of it is pretty special.”

Harsh winds and chilly temperatures didn’t slow Cincinnati’s offense. Stubbs drove in three runs for the Reds, who joined the Cubs, Giants, Dodgers, Braves and Cardinals as the only teams to reach the 10,000-win plateau.

The Cubs dropped their sixth straight and fell to 3-11 on the year.

NATIONALS 2, MARLINS 0: Ross Detwiler and three relievers combined on a four-hitter, Rick Ankiel homered and had three hits, and the Nationals won at home.

Detwiler (2-0) allowed three hits over six innings and struck out seven, equaling a career high. Craig Stammen threw a perfect seventh and Tyler Clippard struck out Hanley Ramirez with two on to end the eighth after walking Emilio Bonifacio on 14 pitches.

Henry Rodriguez walked two in the ninth but still earned his fourth save as Washington improved to 11-4.

Miami had its four-game winning streak snapped.

Leading off the third, Ankiel hit a 2-0 pitch from Carlos Zambrano (0-1) far over the center-field wall for his first home run of the year.

In the eighth, Ankiel doubled to right with one out off Steve Cishek, went to third on an infield out and scored on an RBI single by Ian Desmond.

Zambrano is 8-4 against the Nationals and hadn’t lost in Washington since May 14, 2005. He allowed just two hits — both by Ankiel, who also singled in the fifth. In seven innings, Zambrano struck out six and walked none.

CARDINALS 4, PIRATES 1: In Pittsburgh, Lance Lynn allowed only an inside-the-park homer to Alex Presley in seven innings to lead the Cardinals. Filling in nicely for injured ace Chris Carpenter, Lynn (3-0) gave up four hits. He walked one and struck out four. He has won each of his starts this season and compiled a 1.42 ERA.

GIANTS 4, METS 3: In New York, Hector Sanchez hit a go-ahead single in the 10th inning off Frank Francisco, and the Giants came back after blowing the lead in the ninth.

DODGERS 3, ASTROS 1: In Houston, Matt Kemp homered again, one of his three hits, and drove in two runs to lead the Dodgers. Kemp’s eighth home run of the season was a two-run shot off J.A. Happ that put Los Angeles up 2-0 in the first inning and gave him 20 RBI this season.

ROCKIES 4, BREWERS 3: In Milwaukee, Michael Cuddyer hit a tiebreaking RBI single off closer John Axford in the ninth inning and the Rockies held on to a win.


TWINS 5, RAYS 4: Josh Willingham extended his season-opening hitting streak to 14 games with a go-ahead three-run double and the Twins topped the host Rays. The Twins also got two RBI from Joe Mauer, who went 2 for 3 with two walks.

BLUE JAYS 4, ROYALS 3: Jose Bautista singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the visiting Blue Jays turned their first triple play in 33 years to hand the slumping Royals their eighth straight defeat. Kansas City had runners on first and second in the third inning when Eric Hosmer lined out to first baseman Adam Lind, who stepped on the bag to double off Yuniesky Betancourt. Lind then fired to shortstop Yunel Escobar to retire Alex Gordon, who had strayed off second.
