Holliday HR's to Lead Cards Over Pirates
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Matt Holliday hit a tiebreaking home run and Kyle Lohse won his eighth consecutive decision, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night.

Holliday led off the sixth inning with his 24th homer, a drive to right field off A.J. Burnett that put St. Louis ahead for good at 3-2.

Lohse (14-2) pitched five innings before being lifted following a 34-minute rain delay in the top of the sixth. He allowed two runs and five hits while striking out three and walking none.

Lohse has not lost in 13 starts dating to June 15 and raised his career record against Pittsburgh to 9-2.

Burnett (15-5) gave up four runs, three earned, and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings with three strikeouts and one walk. He lost at home for just second time this season in 10 decisions and 13 starts.
