Garcia Improves to 5-0, Cardinals Rout Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Unbeaten Jaime Garcia pitched seven effective innings and Matt Holliday homered to start an early burst yesterday that sent the St. Louis Cardinals to a 9-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs.

Garcia (5-0), who carried a perfect game into the eighth in his previous start against Milwaukee, allowed one run and nine hits. He complemented his 84-pitch outing on an 84-degree day at Wrigley Field by hitting an RBI single.

St. Louis finished with 16 hits and took two of three in the series without manager Tony La Russa, who is back in St. Louis recovering from shingles.

Holliday homered to begin a five-run second inning.
