Carpenter, Cardinals Hand Braves Seventh Straight Loss
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Chris Carpenter won on his 35th birthday and Yadier Molina had the go-ahead hit for the second straight game in the St. Louis Cardinals' 5-4 victory over the sagging Atlanta Braves Tuesday night.

Atlanta has totaled 13 runs during a seven-game losing streak, the franchise's worst since a 10-game skid June 11-22, 2006. The Braves coughed up an early lead for the second straight game, 2-0 after three innings Tuesday and 3-0 after five on Monday.

Derek Lowe (3-2) was one of seven pitchers who have thrown a no-hitter making starts on Tuesday. He retired the first 10 batters before Ryan Ludwick homered and was chased in a four-run sixth that put St. Louis ahead 5-2.
