ST. LOUIS (AP) — Edinson Volquez was bailed out by his bullpen and earned the victory in San Diego's 5-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday night. Lance Lynn lost for the fourth time in five starts, allowing four runs in five innings. Allen Craig had a two-run single and 29-year-old rookie Brock Peterson had an RBI groundout in his first major league at-bat.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals placed outfielder Matt Holliday on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring sustained before the All-Star break.

The team purchased the contract of first baseman/outfielder Brock Peterson, a Pacific Coast League All-Star at Triple-A Memphis, in time for last night's game.
