Last updated on Wednesday, May 18, 2011

(ST. LOUIS, MO) - Lance Berkman’s single with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth gave the St. Louis Cardinals a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia allowed an unearned run over eight innings of work, but did not figure in the decision.

The Redbirds took a 1-0 lead in the fourth on Yadier Molina's RBI single.

The Phillies tied it in the eighth when Placido Polanco's sacrifice fly drove home Jimmy Rollins.

The Cardinals sweep the two-game series as the Phillies have lost four games in a row.
