Bullpen Helps Cardinals Beat Marlins
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Matt Holliday drove in three runs to top 100 RBIs for the third time in his career and the St. Louis Cardinals' bullpen rescued struggling Todd Wellemeyer in an 11-6 victory over the Florida Marlins Monday night.

Albert Pujols had two hits plus the go-ahead sacrifice fly in a three-run fourth inning and Skip Schumaker had three hits, a walk and scored three times.

The Cardinals bounced back from a three-game sweep by the Braves and reduced their magic number for clinching the NL Central to 10.
