KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Matt Carpenter had a career-high five hits for St. Louis on Wednesday night. The last of them was arguably the most important. Carpenter delivered a go-ahead double in the 11th inning, and the Cardinals added two more runs on a single by Allen Craig, sending them to a 5-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals and ending a frustrating three-game losing streak. "Sometimes it takes an emotional victory like this to kind of jumpstart a team," said Carpenter, who also reached base on a walk. "Maybe this one will be the one for us." The Royals rallied with two runs in the ninth, and the game remained tied until the 11th, when Peter Bourjos worked a one-out walk off Royals reliever Kelvin Herrera (1-2). Carpenter then rapped his double to centre field, drawing a roar from a crowd comprised mostly of Cardinals fans. Craig added his single off Tim Collins later in the inning, and Pat Neshek breezed through the bottom half to end the Royals six-game winning streak against National League clubs. Sam Freeman (1-0) earned the win with a perfect 10th inning. "It was just one of those gut-check games," Craig said. "Were not going to stop competing." Carpenter became the first Cardinal to record five hits in a game since Ryan Ludwick on Sept. 4, 2009. He had a part in his clubs first three runs, driving in Mark Ellis in the second inning and scoring on Matt Hollidays groundout in the seventh After St. Louis dropped the first two games of the four-game, two-city set at Busch Stadium, the NL champs rebounded to win for the eighth straight time at Kauffman Stadium. The Cardinals persevered after Adam Wainwright blew a 2-0 lead in the ninth inning. He struck out Eric Hosmer to start it, but the ball squirted away from catcher Yadier Molina, allowing Hosmer to reach first base. Billy Butler followed with a crisp single up the middle. Trevor Rosenthal, who took the loss Tuesday night, entered in relief and walked Alex Gordon on a full count to load the bases. Salvador Perez followed with a broken-bat groundout to score a run, and Lorenzo Cains single up the middle knotted the game 2-all. "You lose the lead and a start like that from Waino, theres a lot of teams that will roll over in that situation," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said, "but the guys stepped up." The ninth-inning rally still soured a dazzling outing by Wainwright, who was trying to become the NLs first nine-game winner. The two-time All-Star did not allow a hit until the sixth inning, stranded three runners on third base and struck out eight while walking just two. "Wainwright pitched a great game. Hes an unbelievable pitcher," Cain said. "When we tied the game, I thought we had them. We tried to spoil it for him at the end." Wainwright wasnt the only Cardinal to get on track, though. Molina had hits in his first two at-bats, snapping an 0-for-16 streak. Ellis ended an 0-for-8 stretch with his single in the second that led to the games first run. Jason Vargas kept Kansas City in it most of the night. After leaving the bases loaded in the first inning, he went on strand 10 in a season-high eight innings. The left-hander allowed nine hits and walked two while allowing two runs or fewer for the fifth time in six starts. "Carpenter was pretty hot," Vargas said. "It was just one of those games where youve got to grind, make pitches and kind of think your way through things." NOTES: Vargas threw a season-high 117 pitches. ...

Englands only win in the four most recent trips north had been tight, and Scotland was expected after losing 28-6 to Ireland six days ago to show some venom against its archrival. But Scotland was just as toothless as it was in Dublin, on a parasite-infested Murrayfield pitch not worthy of a test. The English, unchanged from the narrow opening loss to France, justified their coaches trust by winning the Calcutta Cup for a fifth straight time and giving the ball surprising width for due reward. Centre Luther Burrell and fullback Mike Brown scored the tries, and England could afford for Owen Farrell to make only half his goalkicks. Scotland scrumhalf Greig Laidlaw, retained ahead of Chris Cusiter for his goalkicking and made captain, missed his two chances, both in the first half when his desperately outclassed side needed a boost. After two games on the road, England was set for the home match with undefeated Ireland in two weeks. "Ireland have played really well, but were confident also," England coach Stuart Lancaster said. In keeping Scotland scoreless in this fixture for the first time since 1978, Brown said, "The forwards put an outstanding shift in. Faz (Farrell) at 10 and DC (Danny Care) at nine just pulling the strings, it was overall outstanding." Scotland hasnt scored a try in four straight tests, three of them at home, and travels next to Italy, where it hasnt won in eight years. The statistics made dire reading for Scotland: 16 penalties conceded, 14 turnovers, 5 lineouts lost and one telescope to see where Englands 22 was. "Youre not going to win with a lineout that doesnt work," Cusiter said. "We just couldnt get anything going. We seemed to bee committing too many to rucks, not getting any fast ball, and we started missing tackles at the end.dddddddddddd We just could never put them under pressure. Its hugely disappointing." The Scots didnt start either half well. Duncan Weir booted the kickoff straight out on the full, and in the second half Scotland lost another of its throw-ins and was backed up to its 22. In between, England cruised without feeling any pressure. Farrell missed a penalty out front when his planted left foot slipped, but Care kicked a 30-meter dropped goal with aplomb for the first points. Scotland was penalized for interfering with Billy Twelvetrees, giving England an attacking lineout 10 metres out, and England rolled the maul with utter patience. Care squared off the ruck and Burrell timed his run into the gap expertly, and was tackled too late. Farrell converted, then Laidlaw missed his second penalty attempt, hitting the post for a second straight match. Farrell kicked another penalty in the 29th, and almost put the match away seconds before halftime, with a step off his left foot, dummy and clean break. Burrell came up his inside and was stopped by Scotland winger Sean Lamont in front of the left post. England, up 13-0, changed into clean shirts at the break but they didnt stay white for long. No. 8 Billy Vunipola rampaged up the middle, offloaded to Brown, and Jonny May received an overlap on the left wing. May was foiled, but Scotland centre Alex Dunbar was sin-binned. It took seven minutes for England to make the man advantage count, and even then the long buildup looked to have broken down on the left wing. But winger Jack Nowell picked up the dropped ball, shimmied past several tackles and fed Brown to scoot in with a fist pump. There was still a quarter to go, but England wasnt fussed. Scotland had nothing. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
