Lance Lynn allowed two runs in seven innings, Matt Holliday homered and Carlos Beltran stole home Sunday as the St. Louis Cardinals defeated Miami 3-2 to complete a three-game sweep --their first at home this season.
How it went
Holliday walloped his 12th home run of the season in the first, a 420-foot drive to center against Jose Fernandez (5-5), to give the Cardinals a 1-0 lead. Adeiny Hechavarria's RBI single in the second tied the game at 1. Allen Craig had a sacrifice fly to put St. Louis ahead 2-1 in the second, and Beltran was credited with a steal of home later in the inning as Holliday was caught in a rundown between first and second. Jeff Mathis' RBI bunt single brought Florida within 3-2 in the fourth.
