(KMOV) -- The Cardinals 5-4 wild comeback win Sunday marked their first four game series sweep since late April.

Hidden beneath the dramatics of rookie Allen Craig’s 2 for 4, 3 RBI day, and Matt Holliday’s game winning hit, were a pair of subtle yet noteworthy performances. 

Jeff Suppan went six innings, his longest outing since rejoining the Birds, and allowed just one earned run; not a win for Soup, but more progress made.

Meanwhile, Brendan Ryan, collected his first hit since June 30th, walked twice, and laid down a crucial sacrifice bunt in the 9th inning.

For a player whose batting average has hovered around .200 all season, Ryan says he hopes this is a start.
