Anemic Offense Back; Cardinals can't Sweep M's
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Jason Vargas stymied the St. Louis Cardinals into the eighth inning and Matt Holliday failed again in the clutch in the Seattle Mariners' 2-1 victory that prevented a three-game sweep Wednesday night.

Holliday struck out on a ball in the dirt against Brandon League with the tying run at third to end the eighth, dropping his average to .194 with runners in scoring position.

Vargas (5-2) gave up a run on five hits in 7 2-3 innings, the second-longest outing of his career, and is 3-0 over his last eight starts. He outpitched St. Louis rookie Jaime Garcia (6-3), who gave up two runs on five hits in seven innings.

Albert Pujols barely missed homering on a drive off the top of the wall in left-center in the fourth.
