PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Juan Pierre beat out a run-scoring infield single in the 11th inning, lifting the Philadelphia Phillies to an 8-7 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday.

Jimmy Rollins reached off Barret Browning (0-2) on a fielder’s choice. He advanced to second base on a grounder and then stole third.

Pierre hit one deep into the hole that shortstop Rafael Furcal made a great stab at and fired to first. Pierre just beat the throw to score Rollins and help the Phillies win two of three against the Cardinals.

Philadelphia’s Erik Kratz hit a three-run homer off Mitchell Boggs in the eighth that tied the game 7-all.

Ryan Howard also homered for the Phillies. Matt Carpenter had three RBIs for the Cardinals.

Jeremy Horst (2-0) tossed two scoreless innings for the win in a game that lasted 3 hours, 53 minutes.
