Felipe Lopez singled home the game-winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning to carry the Cardinals to a 6-5 come- from-behind win over the Angels in the rubber match of a three-game set at Busch Stadium. Ryan Franklin (3-0) struck out three over two scoreless innings to earn the win for the Cardinals, who took two of three in the set and have won five of their last seven. David Freese finished with three hits, a pair of runs batted in and a run scored for St. Louis, which leads the all-time series, 5-4. The Cardinals have the day off today.
Jason Giambi finished with three hits, including a three-run homer, and drove in four as Colorado outslugged Kansas City, 11-7, in the finale of a three-game interleague set from Kauffman Stadium. Mitch Maier was 3-for-5 and knocked in two runs, while Alberto Callaspo had two hits and two RBI and Willie Bloomquist homered for the Royals, who had won three in a row prior to dropping two straight. Zack Greinke (1-5) turned in his shortest outing of the season in defeat, lasting just 3 1/3 innings, charged with nine hits and eight runs -- seven earned. The Royals have the day off today.
The St. Louis Cardinals have placed starting pitcher Brad Penny on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right lat muscle. Penny left Friday's 9-5 win over the Angels after hitting just the 11th grand slam by a Cardinals pitcher in the third inning. He took his warmup throws prior to the fourth before he was replaced by Mitchell Boggs. Penny is 3-4 with a 3.23 earned run average in nine starts this season, his first with St. Louis after splitting the 2009 campaign between Boston and San Francisco.
