Allen Craig had a pivotal day at the plate for St. Louis -- in the fourth inning, he singled home the team's first run and later provided the game-winning hit, a two-run home run in the eighth that gave his team a 5-3 lead.

Kyle Lohse pitched well, giving up just one run on two hits over six innings, though that was only good enough for a no-decision.
