ST. LOUIS (AP) - Rookie Colby Rasmus had three hits and two RBIs, both putting the St. Louis Cardinals ahead in a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night.
Yadier Molina homered during a three-hit game and Todd Wellemeyer (6-6) won for the third time in eight decisions at home. St. Louis relievers allowed a run and three hits in 3 2-3 innings, with Ryan Franklin working the ninth for his 16th save in 17 chances.
Curtis Granderson homered twice for the Tigers, who have lost four in a row. They've scored four runs on solo homers during the first two games of the series.
Granderson also walked and singled and is a .467 career hitter (21 for 45) with three homers and 11 RBIs against the Cardinals. But he struck out to end the game.
