(St. Louis)--Matt Holliday's third inning homer added insult to injury after the Redbirds had already scored 3 runs in the first. The home run ball is believed to have traveled a record 469 feet, the longest recorded in the 7 year old Busch stadium. Kyle Lohse picked up the win for the Birds. The Cards and Cubs return to action in St. Louis this evening with the first pitch scheduled at 6:15 pm.
