Andy Sonnanstine carried a shutout into the eighth inning and added two singles to a 12-hit outburst in the streaking Tampa Bay Rays' 3-1 victory over sagging St. Louis on Friday. Akinori Iwamura had three hits and an RBI for the AL East leaders, who are eight games above .500 for the first time in franchise history.
Albert Pujols was 0-for-4 with two groundouts, an infield popup and a strikeout, ending his streak of reaching base in all 42 games to start the season. It also ended Pujols' 14-game hitting streak. Chris Duncan homered and Troy Glaus had two hits, making him 10-for-18 the last four games, for the Cardinals. St. Louis, however, has lost eight of 10.
