|Diamondbacks Pitcher Helps Team Beat Cardinals
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Barry Enright gave the Arizona Diamondbacks five solid innings as the fill-in for Edwin Jackson and Chris Young hit a two-run home run in a 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals that avoided a three-game sweep on Wednesday.
Both Enright (1-0) and the Cardinals' Jeff Suppan (0-4) went five innings in a game that lasted 3 hours, 53 minutes.
It's the longest nine-inning game at 5-year-old Busch Stadium, topping the previous high by 15 minutes, and was the team's longest nine-inning game of the season by 33 minutes.
Young was in a 1 for 18 slump and his career average at St. Louis was down to .125 before he hit his 14th homer in the fifth for a 3-1 lead that helped the Diamondbacks win on the road for the fourth time in 22 games and avoid getting swept for a ninth time.
