|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Adam Wainwright threw eight sharp innings and Jason Motte struck out Adam Rosales with the tying run in scoring position in the ninth, preserving the St. Louis Cardinals' 4-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics Saturday night.
Ryan Franklin started the ninth but left after Ryan Sweeney's RBI single got the A's within two. Motte struck out Kevin Kouzmanoff and got Mark Ellis to fly out before Gabe Gross singled in a run.
With runners on first and second, Rosales swung and missed for strike three, giving Motte his second save in two opportunities.
Matt Holliday homered and drove in three runs for the second straight day, and Skip Schumaker had two hits for St. Louis, which has won four of five.
