Last updated on Wednesday, May 25, 2011

(SAN DIEGO, CA) - Daniel Descalso’s RBI single in the top of the eleventh inning gave the St. Louis Cardinals their fourth win in a row as they got past the San Diego Padres 3-2.

Lance Berkman gave St. Louis the early lead with an RBI single in the first, but Brad Hawpe responded with a two-run homer in the bottom of the frame to give the Padres a 2-1 lead.

That was the score in the seventh when Ryan Theriot's groundout scored Descalso from third.

Allen Craig led off the eleventh by drawing a walk off San Diego reliever Ernesto Frieri.

Craig stole second and scored on Descalso's two-out single to center.

The Padres have lost five straight.
