CLEVELAND (AP) - Shin-Soo Choo got the job done again - this time without any avian assistance.
A day after his winning hit glanced off a gull in the outfield, Choo drove in three runs for the Indians to help rookie David Huff get his second big league win in Cleveland's 7-3 win Friday night over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Huff (2-2), making his sixth major league start, gave up a leadoff homer to Albert Pujols in the fourth and left with one out in the eighth after allowing three runs.
Joel Pineiro (5-7) allowed three runs in 6 1-3 innings. He has lost 7 of his last eight starts, including four straight.
The flocks of gulls that have been swarming Progressive Field the last two homestands were largely absent Friday night.
