LOUIS -- Luke Weaver didnt have any big plans to celebrate his first major league win.Jedd Gyorko homered and Weaver pitched six strong innings as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Oakland Athletics 3-1 on Friday night.Its a little late, the 23-year-old Weaver said.

Five of his seven strikeouts were looking.Luke was great tonight, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. Nice to see him get out of the first without all kinds of traffic and having to be under stress right from the beginning.

Moss taking the blooper and reading off the bat to challenge to get to third, but Yadi very heads up trying to get that run across realizing that it was worth the out to make sure we get that run.Oaklands Ryon Healy singled in the fourth to extend his hitting streak to 12 games, the longest active stretch in the majors.HOMECOMINGDetwiler went to Holt Senior High in Wentzville, Missouri, 40 miles west of Busch Stadium.
