 CHICAGO (AP) -Albert Pujols and Rick Ankiel homered, Scott Rolen drove in three runs with a pair of doubles and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 6-4 on Monday, moving within three games of the NL Central lead.
The Cardinals salvaged one win in what was to have been a four-game series before the Sunday night game was postponed. Chicago won on Friday and Saturday.
Pujols hit his 28th homer in the fifth, and Rolen had a two-run double in the first and a run-scoring double in the third.
Ankiel, the pitcher-turned-outfielder, made a great throw in the first to cut down Chicago leadoff hitter Ryan Theriot when he tried to stretch a double into a triple. Leading off the seventh against rookie Carmen Pignatiello, he hit his fourth homer to put St. Louis up 6-4.
Joel Pineiro (3-1) went five innings to win his third straight start. He allowed three runs and seven hits, including back-to-back homers to Daryle Ward and Mark DeRosa in the second inning. Derrek Lee homered off Troy Percival in the sixth.
Cubs starter Ted Lilly (13-6), who was 8-1 in his previous 10 starts, gave up seven hits and five runs over six innings.
Giants 8, Marlins 7
MIAMI (AP) - Bengie Molina drove in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning with his third RBI single, and last-place San Francisco overcame a four-run deficit to complete a four-game over Florida.
The Giants won their fifth consecutive game for their longest road winning streak since Aug. 21-Sept. 5, 2005. San Francisco finished 6-3 on its first winning trip of the year.
Jeremy Hermida hit a three-run homer for Florida to give the Marlins a 4-0 lead, but the Giants came back despite stranding 14 runners.
The Giants took the lead for good in the sixth, when Dave Roberts led off with a triple off Ross Wolf (0-1) and came home on a one-out single by Molina.
Jack Taschner (3-1) pitched 1 1-3 scoreless innings despite three walks. With Brad Hennessey getting the day off after converting saves in three consecutive games, Brian Wilson pitched the ninth for his first save of the year.
