The Cardinals wrapped up a three-game series with the Phillies with a 7-4 win on Thursday afternoon. St. Louis got rolling early with a five-run first inning. It was capped with Hector Luna’s three-run homer. Philadelphia wasn’t going to go quietly out of the first, though. They scored three times, thanks in part to back-to-back homers from Jim Thome and Pat Burrell to make it 5-3. Jeff Suppan settled down after that and went six innings to earn his third win of the season. Cal Eldred, Steve Kline, Julian Tavarez, Ray King and Jason Isringhausen—who earned his fourth save—combined for three scoreless innings to hold the lead. The Cardinals are 9-2 on the road, which is tied for the best road record in baseball.
