ST. Womens Joe Flacco Jersey . LOUIS —The St.
Louis Cardinals needed a lift. Lucky for them, Yadier Molina was ready to return
to the lineup. Molina had three hits and two RBIs, leading the Cardinals to a
big 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday. St. Louis bounced back
from Friday nights 2-1 loss in the series opener and pulled within a game of
Pittsburgh for the second NL wild-card spot. Jaime Garcia is expected to come
off the disabled list to start Sundays series finale against Pirates
right-hander Jeff Karstens. Molina also scored a run after missing the previous
three games with a sore back. The All-Star catcher hit a tiebreaking two-run
double off Erik Bedard (7-13) in the fifth inning to give the Cardinals a 5-3
lead. “Not just his presence but his production,” St. Louis manager Mike Matheny
said. “Its great to have Yadi back.” The Cardinals had scored just two runs in
their previous two games. Batting sixth, Molina went 3 for 4. “It feels so
good,” said Molina, who indicated his back was not bothering him after the game.
“I was waiting for this moment the last three days. Its good to be back, its
good to get the win.” Pittsburgh loaded the bases with no outs in the ninth
against Jason Motte but only managed one run on Andrew McCutchens infield out.
Garrett Jones struck out swinging and Josh Harrison bounced into a fielders
choice to end the game. Motte fell behind 3-0 to Jones before coming back to get
him. Jones took a healthy cut at the 3-0 pitch, which was fine with Pittsburgh
manager Clint Hurdle. “Hes your cleanup hitter and arguably as hot as anyone we
have on the team,” Hurdle said. “Were going to play the game to win it. Were not
going to be afraid to make a mistake or play on our heels.” Barret Browning
(1-2) pitched a scoreless inning for his first major league win. Motte earned
his 28th save in 33 chances after blowing his previous opportunity Thursday
against Arizona. Motte was not dwelling on the past when he loaded the bases
Saturday. “I dont really think about the other day,” Motte said. “I was out
there and I was thinking I got to get this guy at the plate. Thats pretty much
exactly what I was thinking.” Shane Robinson also had a two-run double for St.
Louis, which finished with 11 hits. Rafael Furcal went 2 for 5 and scored twice,
and Allen Craig had two singles. Jordy Mercer went 2 for 4 with two RBIs for the
Pirates, who struck out 14 times. Craigs second hit put runners on the corners
with two down in the fifth. Bedard then walked David Freese before Molina came
up with his opposite-field double to right to put St. Louis in front. Cardinals
starter Lance Lynn allowed three runs and four hits in 4 1-3 innings. He struck
out eight and walked three. Mercer singled in Clint Barmes in the third and
doubled in Starling Marte in the fifth, cutting St. Louis lead to 3-2. Mercer
eventually scored the tying run on Jones sacrifice fly to right. NOTES: Garcia
is scheduled for his first start since June 5 after he was sidelined by a left
shoulder strain. ... Cardinals slugger Matt Holliday snapped an 0-for-14 slide
with a third-inning single. ... Edward Mujica pitched a scoreless seventh and
has yet to allow a run in eight appearances with the Cardinals. ... Marte left
in the sixth inning with discomfort in his right side and was being evaluated.

Jamaal Charles took a solid hit to the left knee on his very first carry, then
bounced right up and helped the Kansas City Chiefs score touchdowns on their
first two possessions en route to a 27-17 preseason victory over the Arizona
Cardinals on Friday night. Charles, the NFLs second-leading rusher in 2010, had
12 yards on three carries and caught one pass for 11 yards in his first action
since ACL surgery on the left knee last September. Two other key starters who
also sat out last season with ACL surgery—safety Eric Berry and tight end
Tony Moeaki—also played with no apparent problem, a huge relief for fans and
coaches. For the second straight game, the defence for Arizona (tied No. 23 in
the AP Pro 32) yielded a touchdown on the opening drive, with Matt Cassel
hitting Peyton Hillis on a 12-yard scoring strike to open the game. In their
second possession, the Chiefs (No. 18) romped 72 yards in just four plays,
capped by Shaun Draughns 4-yard run. Little was decided in the battle between
John Skelton and Kevin Kolb for Arizonas starting quarterback job. But
William Powell, a second-year running back from Kansas State, had a big game,
rushing for 92 yards on nine carries. He scored the Cardinals first touchdown on
a 2-yard run on fourth down after exploding for 67 yards a moment before.
Skelton started and was 3 for 6 for 35 yards and one interception. Kolb, who
started in the Hall of Fame game against New Orleans, came off the bench and was
one for 5 for 21 yards. The Cardinals, who spent the week practicing at the
Chiefs camp in nearby St. Ray Rice Grey Jersey. Joseph, Mo., dropped to
0-2 in the preseason, while the Chiefs matched their preseason victory total for
the past three seasons. Cassel, who missed most of the second half last season
with a hand injury, looked sharp. He connected with a wide-open Hillis to finish
a 12-play, 72-yard march for a 7-0 lead the first time the Chiefs had the ball
and was 5 for 6 for 67 yards. He rifled a 29-yard completion to Dexter McCluster
to set up Draughns TD run with 4:13 left in the first quarter. Hillis, an
off-season free agent signing, had 41 yards on four carries. He broke through a
big hole on the right side of the line for a 28-yard run in the second TD drive,
helping the first-teamers to touchdowns on the only two possessions they played.
Abram Elam intercepted Skeltons pass intended for Larry Fitzgerald and returned
it 37 yards to set up Ryan Succups 22-yard field goal in the third quarter.
Succops 24-yarder following Devon Wylies long punt return made it 20-10.
Ricky Stanzi, the Chiefs third-string quarterback, found backup tight end
Steve Maneri for 19 yards in the fourth period to help set up a 7-yard touchdown
run by Cyrus Gray. Gray had 15 carries for 65 yards and Maneri had three catches
for 69 yards. With 8:28 left, the Cardinals made it 27-17 when Richard Bartel
connected with Jaymar Johnson on an 18-yard touchdown pass. The replacement
officials were not shy about throwing flags, calling six penalties on each team
for a total of 149 yards. ’ ’ ’
