HOUSTON (AP) - Rookie Yordano Ventura threw seven solid innings for first major league win to lift the Kansas City Royals to a 4-2 victory over the Houston Astros last night. Omar Infante homered and drove in two runs for the Royals. Ventura allowed four hits and one earned run with seven strikeouts in seven innings in his fifth major league start.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Shelby Miller struck out seven and allowed three hits over six innings to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-1 win last night over the Milwaukee Brewers. Matt Holliday and Jhonny Peralta each hit solo shots in the ninth off reliever Jim Henderson for the Cardinals. St. Louis handed Milwaukee its second straight loss following a nine-game winning streak.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals activated Mark Ellis from the 15-day disabled list and inserted him into the starting lineup at second base for last night's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Ellis missed the first 13 games of the season with left knee tendinitis. He went 1 for 3 while playing five innings during a rehab game Sunday at Triple-A Memphis.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - T.J. Oshie and Brenden Morrow participated in the St. Louis Blues' optional skate. It's a positive step for a franchise hit hard by injuries during a late slide in the regular season. But captain David Backes and forwards Patrik Berglund and Vladimir Sobotka weren't ready yesterday. The Blackhawks got forwards Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews (tayvz) back on the ice Monday.
