Holliday Bat Helps Cards beat A's
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Matt Holliday homered and drove in three runs in his first successful night in the No. 2 slot, helping the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Oakland Athletics 6-4 Friday night.

Skip Schumaker drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh as St. Louis manager Tony La Russa improved to 6-1 against his old team. Schumaker had three hits and scored three times.

Chris Carpenter (8-1) gave up four runs in the second, matching his season worst, but none in his other six innings.

Rajai Davis matched his career high with four hits and drove in a run for the Athletics, who have lost six of seven. Conor Jackson had two hits and two RBIs.
