Woody Williams got his 100th career win and the Cardinals beat the Giants 6-1 in San Francisco Sunday. Williams 6 1/3 innings and allowed one run off five hits and two walks. Interestingly enough, Jason Schmidt, who pitched for San Francisco, was also looking for his 100th win. Williams improved to 8-6, while Schmidt dropped to 13-4 on the season. The Cardinals led 2-1 in the eighth inning when Jim Edmonds drove in a run with a single. Later in the eighth, Mike Matheny drove Edmonds in with a single of his own. Albert Pujols and Edmonds drove in two more runs in the ninth inning to put the game away with a 6-1 lead. The Cardinals’ first runs came as a result of Scott Rolen’s 25th home run of the season in the 1st inning. Rolen is tied with Miguel Tejada of the Orioles, for the major league RBI lead with 96. St. Louis took two-of-three at San Francisco and leads Chicago by 10 1/2 games in the N.L. Central.
