Woody Williams had what may have been the greatest night of his career as the Cardinals beat the Blue Jays 13-5. He took a no hitter into the eighth inning. Even though Orlando Hudson broke it up with a single, it was still a memorable evening. Besides dominating the game from the mound, Williams also drove in four runs with a bases-loaded grounder in the second inning and a bases-loaded triple in the third. That gave the Cardinals a 7-0 lead. Edgar Renteria and Albert Pujols drove in two apiece. Pujols and Jim Edmonds homered in the sixth inning for their 16th and 13th home runs of the season. Williams, who was suffering from cramps, was pulled after the eighth inning. Williams is 8-1 with a 1.99 ERA. Dustin Hermanson, who hadn’t pitched since May 25, allowed five runs in the ninth inning. The Cardinals have won four straight.
