ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Kevin Kouzmanoff had a season-high four hits, including a home run, and Trevor Cahill threw six strong innings to lead the Oakland Athletics to a 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday.

The A's snapped a four-game losing streak with their second win in nine games.

Matt Holliday hit two home runs for St. Louis, which went 4-2 on the six-game homestand. Holliday was 8 for 12 in the series with four home runs and eight RBIs.
