Juan Pierre’s 11th inning infield single scored Jimmy Rollins with the winning run as the Philadelphia Phillies came back to beat the Cardinals 8-7. St. Louis had led the game 7-4 in the 8th inning, but Philly tied it on a three run home run by Erik Kratz off Cardinals reliever Mitchell Boggs.

The Cardinals offense banged out 14 hits, including four from Matt Carpenter as well as three RBI. Jon Jay had three hits and 2 runs batted in. Cardinals starting pitcher Lance Lynn was again ineffective. He allowed four earned runs in five innings pitched. Barret Browning took the loss which dropped the Cardinals seven games back of the first place Reds in the NL Central Division.
