Braves Beat Cards
ATLANTA (AP) -- Alex Gonzalez hit a three run homer in the 12th inning and the Atlanta Braves beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-3 on Saturday to move into a tie for the NL East lead.

With runners on first and third and the outfielders playing shallow to guard against a sacrifice fly, Gonzalez hit the winning shot off Mitchell Boggs into the left-field seats.

The Braves are tied for first with the Philadelphia Phillies, who lost to the New York Mets 4-3.

St. Louis was six games back of NL Central-leading Cincinnati at the beginning of the day.
