Holliday, Westbrook Lead Cardinals Past K.C.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Jake Westbrook pitched eight shutout innings and Matt Holliday broke a scoreless tie with a two-run homer in the eighth, lifting St. Louis to a 3-0 win over Kansas City on a bright, breezy Saturday afternoon.

Westbrook, (4-3) whose longest start this year had been seven innings, gave up four hits, with three walks and three strikeouts while raising his career mark in Kauffman Stadium to 3-0. Kansas City's Nate Adcock went five scoreless innings in his first major league start.

Albert Pujols singled off Tim Collins (2-2) with one out in the eighth and then Holliday, who came in with an NL-leading .357 average, hit reliever Blake Wood's 2-1 pitch 433 feet over the left field fence.

Fernando Salas pitched the ninth for his sixth save in six opportunities.
