Holiday, Cardinals Beat Milwaukee
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Matt Holliday's three-run homer snapped a seventh inning tie, lifting Joel Pineiro to his eighth straight win and the St. Louis Cardinals to a 7-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday night.

Albert Pujols added his major league-leading 42nd homer for the Cardinals, who are a major-league best 26-9 since the July 24 trade with the Athletics for Holliday. They're 30-4 since July 1st in starts by their big three: Adam Wainwright, Chris Carpenter and Pineiro.

Rookie Casey McGehee hit a three-run homer in the first and matched his career high with four RBIs for the Brewers, who entered a three-game series against the NL Central leaders with a three-game winning streak.
