ANAHEIM, Calif. - St. Louis scored more runs than the Los Angeles Angels had allowed in their previous six games combined, and the Cardinals table-setters were responsible for driving in half of them. Jon Jay had three RBIs, including a two-run homer off centre fielder Mike Trouts glove during St. Louis seven-run second inning, and the Cardinals ended Los Angeles seven-game winning streak with a 12-2 rout on Wednesday night. Matt Carpenter, batting leadoff in front of Jay, also homered and drove in three runs to help keep the Cardinals two games behind Pittsburgh in the NL Central. "Matt Carpenter sets the tone for us, and he had a terrific game," manager Mike Matheny said. "He put together good at-bats and he doesnt give any away. It was also nice to see John Jay have some real nice at-bats. We need to get him going, and today was a real good indicator that hes on the right path. Hes been making some adjustments that are allowing him to have good at-bats, and it worked out for him today." Shelby Miller (9-6) struck out six over six innings and allowed five hits, including a two-run homer by Hank Conger in the second. The right-hander was coming off back-to-back losses against two other AL West clubs, including a 6-1 defeat last Friday at Oakland in which he lasted only 1 2-3 innings and gave up five runs. "I wouldnt say I was any fresher tonight. I mean, I threw 51 pitches in the second inning at Oakland and thats going to wear your arm down more so than going eight innings and throwing 100 pitches," Miller said. "But I felt strong, so I basically wanted to try to go deep in the ballgame. My pitch (count) rose up again, but I got some big plays behind me. "The biggest thing was just trying to get the ball down and hit the corners," Miller added. "I felt like I was on the corners — not the whole game, but more so than I had been. My fastball command was better and I felt like my curve ball was sharper. I just made that one mistake to Conger where I did that slide-step and tried to fool him with the curve, but I just hung it and left it right over the middle of the plate." Jerome Williams (5-4) was charged with seven runs, four hits and four walks in just 1 2-3 innings. The right-hander had not given up more than three bases on balls in any of his previous 17 starts. "After winning that many in a row, you almost always think youre due for a butt-kicking," Angels right fielder Josh Hamilton said. "Youd rather lose one like this than a really close one, but youve got to put it behind you." One night after the Angels scored all of their runs in the second inning of a series-opening 5-1 victory, the Cardinals sent 12 men to the plate in the second after Williams had set them down 1-2-3 in the first. The seven-run rally included a two-run double by David Descalso, and a two-run homer by Jay that Trout had in his glove for an instant before it popped out as his arm made contact with the top of the fence. "The hardest play to make is when you get there at the same time as the ball," Hamilton said. "Youre moving pretty good when you get there and dont have time to really have a chance to time anything." Yadier Molina, who raised his NL-leading average to .352 after going 3 for 4 with a walk, greeted Garrett Richards with an RBI single that delivered the seventh run. The Angels got two runs back in the bottom half on Congers fifth homer after a two-out walk to Alberto Callaspo. But David Freese scored an unearned run in the Cardinals third when Richards mishandled a throw from first baseman Mark Trumbo on Carpenters two-out grounder behind the bag. St. Louis increased the margin to 10-2 in the fifth on a run-scoring, ground-rule double by Carpenter and an RBI single by Jay, who had driven in only one run in his previous 35 at-bats coming in. It was only his second game this season with three or more RBIs, the other on May 4 when he had four at Milwaukee. Carpenter ended the scoring in the eighth with his eighth homer, a solo shot off Billy Buckner. NOTES: Matheny caught Williams when they were teammates in San Francisco during the 2005 season. ...

The Blue Jays lost for the sixth time in seven games on the trip, falling to the Brewers 6-1 as Milwaukee pitchers retired 24 consecutive Toronto hitters to close out the game. "We just want to go home," shortstop Jose Reyes said. "It seems like we play better baseball at home. You come out with the kind of lineup we have and score only one run." In his third start since being recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Aug. 9, Milwaukee starter Mike Fiers (3-1) held the Blue Jays to two hits and a lone run and retired the final 18 batters he faced in a 106-pitch outing. "At the same time, you have to give some credit to the pitcher from the other side," Reyes said. "He did an unbelievable job." The Brewers, who won their fifth consecutive game, jumped on Toronto starter J.A. Happ (8-8) immediately, belting three doubles to take a 2-0 lead in the first inning. The Blue Jays got on the board in the second on Munenori Kawasakis RBI ground out. The Brewers added two doubles in the third to extend their lead to 4-1. Milwaukee hitters connected for another pair of doubles in the fifth and added two more runs, staking Fiers to a five-run lead. Happ lasted just 3 1-3 innings, giving up six hits and four runs. It marked his shortest start since going just 2 1-3 innings against the Los Angeles Angels on May 10. "I got us in a hole early," Happ said. "Its tough against anybody, let alone a first-place team. Everybodys got to do their part and I came up short tonight." Toronto manager John Gibbons said his team needs to regroup as it heads into the final stretch. "Were in a little bit of a rut," he said. The Blue Jays squandered early chances against Fiers and fell behind as Happ struggled. "We couuldnt do anything with Fiers," Gibbons said.dddddddddddd. "But you still have to come back when youre down early. We really havent been able to put together anything offensively in awhile." DOUBLE TROUBLE: The Brewers set a season high with seven doubles. The team single-game record is nine, accomplished four times. Lucroys two doubles brought his season total to 42. "I got a couple mistakes up in the zone and I was able to take advantage," Lucroy said. No primary catcher has ever led his league in doubles for a season. Lucroy, who played first base in Tuesdays game, has 35 doubles as a catcher, six as a first baseman and one as a designated hitter. "Luc always has good at-bats," Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said. The major league record for doubles by a catcher in a season is 45 by the Rangers Ivan Rodriguez in 1996. TRAINERS ROOM Brewers: RHP Jim Henderson, on the disabled list since May, had right shoulder surgery on Tuesday, ending his season. .RHP Matt Garza, on the 15-day DL with an oblique strain, could return to the rotation in early September, and RHP Kyle Lohse, who is nursing a sore ankle, wont pitch during the five-game home stand, manager Ron Roenicke said. Blue Jays: Edwin Encarnacion, who was activated on Friday after missing more than a month with a quad injury, started at first base. He started the previous three games at DH, not an option in the National League ballpark. "We need him," manager John Gibbons said. ON DECK Brewers: Rookie Jimmy Nelson (2-3. 3.86 ERA) has five consecutive quality starts and has been counted on heavily with injuries to Garza and Lohse. The Brewers are 4-3 in Nelsons seven starts. Blue Jays: R.A. Dickey (9-12. 3.95) will pitch the finale in the two-game series. Dickeys nine losses on the road are tied for the most in the majors. ' ' '
