Minor Bounces Back to Lift Braves Over Cards
Atlanta, which has the best record in the NL, broke a three-game losing streak and salvaged the final game of the four-game set. St. Louis had a four-game winning streak snapped.
Minor (13-5) gave up one run on six hits. He struck out two and walked one. He was pitching on seven days rest after allowing four runs in 1 2-3 innings against Washington on Aug. 17. Minor, who legged out an infield hit in the seventh, recorded his team-high 19th quality start.
Simmons hit his 12th homer of the season, a solo shot in the seventh that gave the Braves a 4-1 lead.
