It was the Braves' turn to be frustrated in the seventh after loading the bases with one out. Pujols made a nice stop of pinch hitter Chipper Jones' smash and threw home for a forceout as Pineiro, who had been on the way to first, had to hit the deck. Then Jurrjens took a called third strike.
NOTES: Jones is in a 9 for 78 slump. ... Holliday is 7 for 12 with three doubles and four RBIs against Jurrjens. ... Attendance of 43,984 was the Cardinals' 27th sellout. ... Yunel Escobar had two hits and leads the Braves with 40 multihit games.
