Cardinals get 8-1 win

 PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Matt Holliday had four hits and an RBI just hours after being traded to St. Louis, and the Cardinals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-1 on Friday night in a matchup of division leaders.

Acquired from Oakland for a package of prospects earlier in the day, Holliday had two soft hits and a stolen base to help the Cardinals build a 5-0 lead. He ripped a double in the seventh and got his second infield single in the ninth.

Joel Pineiro (9-9) tossed six scoreless innings for the win, allowing four hits.

Julio Lugo homered and tripled in his first game with St. Louis and Rick Ankiel went 3 for 4 with four RBIs.

The Phillies lost for the third time in 18 games.
