|Cardinals Benefit from Dodger's Piching Mistakes
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Yadier Molina homered and drove in four runs, matching his RBI total from the previous 25 games, helping the St. Louis Cardinals overcome a rough start by rookie Jaime Garcia in an 8-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Chad Billingsley (7-5) was the second straight Dodgers starter to get cuffed around by the Cardinals, allowing seven runs and 10 hits in four innings. It was the second-shortest outing of the season for the right-hander, who has a 1.09 ERA in four day games but a 5.76 ERA in 13 night starts.
Randy Winn added two hits and two RBIs, his first since June 13, off a pitcher he's batting .481 against (13 for 27) with seven RBIs. Winn got a spot start in right field ahead of rookie Jon Jay, who's batting .500 during a 12-game hitting streak.
