Cards Win 5-3 Over KC
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Colby Rasmus and Skip Schumaker homered off Kyle Davies, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Kansas City Royals 5-3 on Saturday amid chants of ``USA! USA!'' during America's World Cup match against Ghana.

The soccer game was shown on televisions scattered throughout Kauffman Stadium, sold out for the second consecutive game of the always-spirited I-70 series. As the Americans lined up for the game-tying penalty kick, both Cardinals and Royals fans took up the ``USA'' chant, then cheered a few minutes later when the goal was replayed on the center-field scoreboard.

Blake Hawksworth (2-4), making his second major league start, went five-plus innings for the win, allowing two runs and two hits.
