Cardinals Vs. Braves Final Score: St. Louis Falls 5-4 At Turner Field

The Atlanta Braves snapped a eight-game losing streak by defeating the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 on Tuesday. Catcher Yadier Molina drove-in runs in the sixth and seventh inning as the Cards tried to mount a comeback, but Atlanta closer Craig Kimbrel nailed down his 14th save of the year to give the Braves a wire-to-wire victory. The win moves the Braves to 27-24, while St. Louis falls to 27-23.

Center fielder Michael Bourn led off the game for the Braves with his fifth homer of the year, and Atlanta would brake open the game in the fourth when Dan Uggla clubbed a three-run homer to left center.

It wasn't Molina's fault the Cards lost. The veteran catcher drove-in runs in three separate innings finished the night 4-for-4 with a homer (his eighth of the season) and three RBI.
