So Ryan Ludwick and Albert Pujols homered in the decisive seventh inning as the St. Louis Cardinals rallied for a 6-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds in the second of a three-game set at Busch Stadium. In the 7th inning, Ludwick led off with his first homer of the year to tie the game, and after a David Eckstein single, Pujols hit his 12th homer. Brad Thompson lasted six innings, giving up four runs on seven hits, while walking two and striking out two. Tyler Johnson (1-0) threw a scoreless seventh to earn the win, while Jason Isringhausen got the last three outs for his 14th save in 15 opportunities for the Cardinals, who have won six of seven. The Cards and Reds will play tonight at 7:00 and you can hear the game on KSMO.

Brian Bannister out-dueled Paul Byrd, and Ryan Shealy homered and drove in two runs to lift the Kansas City Royals over the Cleveland Indians, 4-3, in the second game of a three-game set at Jacobs Field. Bannister (2-3) held the Indians to a run on five hits and struck out two without issuing a walk over seven innings. The second-year hurler was coming off his best start of the 2007 campaign, when he tossed eight innings of one- run, two-hit ball to defeat Tampa Bay last Friday. Mark Teahen had two hits and an RBI, while David DeJesus also knocked in a run for Kansas City, which put the brakes on a three-game skid. Joey Gathright, recalled from Triple-A Omaha before the game, had two hits, a stolen base, sacrifice bunt and a run scored. The Royals and Indians will play again this afternoon.
