|Blue Jays Beat Cardinals
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Carlos Villanueva worked six solid innings backed by Juan Rivera's three-run homer, the only hit in a five-run third, and the Toronto Blue Jays' beat the sagging St. Louis Cardinals 6-3 on Saturday night.
Jaime Garcia (6-3) kept his home ERA at a minuscule 0.88 because four of the runs in Toronto's big inning were unearned due to third baseman Daniel Descalso's two-out throwing error. But the left-hander gave up Rivera's sixth homer the next at-bat and walked three in the inning, including Jose Bautista intentionally to load the bases.
Garcia had four strikeouts and four walks, one off his season high, in seven innings.
