ATLANTA -- When Andrelton Simmons botched a grounder, the St. Louis Cardinals seized their opportunity. For the Atlanta Braves, it was another night of missed chances. Matt Carpenters two-run double that helped carry St. Louis past the slumping Braves, who shook up their lineup but still lost their seventh in a row, 4-3 on Monday. The Cardinals scored three runs in the fifth inning, taking advantage of shaky defence by Atlantas Gold Glove shortstop. In fact, Simmons had a couple of plays that couldve been scored errors but were initially ruled hits. The second one was changed to an E-6 and turned out to be especially costly, leading to a pair of unearned runs. St. Louis built a 4-0 lead and barely held on to win the series opener. "It was big," Carpenter said. "Especially when we got out to a big lead, to be able to hold them off, that was big for us." Desperate for more offence, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez batted pitcher Aaron Harang eighth and put second baseman Ramiro Pena in the ninth spot. Pena had two hits, including a seventh-inning homer that brought the Braves within a run, but they couldnt overcome a 4-0 deficit. Juston Upton took a called third strike from Trevor Rosenthal to end the game with the potential tying run at second base -- Uptons fourth strikeout of the night and extending Atlantas woes with runners in scoring position. The Braves were 1 for 12 in those situations and are 6 of 51 during their losing streak, though Freddie Freeman saw some encouraging signs. "We hit some balls hard with runners on," he said. "We were in the game the whole game. We couldnt say that the past week." The last time the Braves had such a lengthy skid was May 21-28, 2012, when they dropped eight in a row. Their longest losing streak last season was four straight. Shelby Miller (4-2) got a shaky win, giving up six hits and two runs in five-plus innings. Trevor Rosenthal pitched out of trouble for his ninth save, giving up a leadoff single to Simmons. Jordan Schafer bunted the runner to second, but Pena flied out to right before Upton whiffed. Harang (3-3) took the loss, though he pitched much better than his previous start, when he was pounded for nine runs by the Marlins. This time, he gave up four runs in six innings but only two were earned. The game was scoreless until the fifth, when Peter Bourjos led off with a single before Mark Ellis grounded one off Simmons glove. The shortstop, looking to make a force at second, appeared to take his eyes off the ball as it skipped past him. After Miller bunted the runners to second and third, Carpenter doubled to right-centre to bring them both in. Matt Holiday followed with a hard liner past third baseman Chris Johnson to make it 3-0. "Those things happen," Harang said of Simmons error. "I told him not to be too hard on himself. Hes probably going to save my butt plenty of times this year." St. Louis added another run in the fifth on Bourjos RBI single, but Gonzalez challenged a call at third base that had seemingly given the Cardinals a 5-0 lead. Yadier Molinas bases-loaded grounder ricocheted off Harangs leg, right to Johnson at third. He caught it and blindly stepped back in search of the bag and managed to barely nick it, as the replay showed. The called was quickly overturned after a review of only 37 seconds. The Braves knocked out Miller in the bottom half of the sixth, the first three hitters reaching safely. The Cardinals went to the bullpen after Evan Gattis RBI single, and B.J. Upton followed with a sacrifice fly off Pat Neshek. Neshek escaped the jam by striking out Simmons. NOTES: The Cardinals sent pitcher RHP Joe Kelly back to St. Louis to continue his rehab from a strained left hamstring. "Joe just wasnt to the point where they thought they could push him, so keeping him around the rest of this road trip didnt make any sense," general manager John Mozeliak said. "I dont know Id call it a setback as much as he just wasnt progressing as quickly as we wanted." ... Atlanta RHP Gavin Floyd will make his season debut when he starts Tuesday against LHP Tyler Lyons (0-2) of the Cardinals. Floyd is coming back from Tommy John surgery and will start in place of Ervin Santana, who has a bruised right thumb. Enes Kanter Jersey . Then he got back at the team that released him five days before the start of last season, hitting a tiebreaking double in the ninth inning of the first game at Fenway Park since Boston won the World Series last October. Kyle Singler Jersey . On Monday night, many fans in this city placed the blame squarely on the captain for his role in the James Neal overtime winner against the Pittsburgh Penguins. - Guard Greivis Vasquez and forward Patrick Patterson, two key pieces to the Toronto Raptors run to an Atlantic Division title in 2013-14, were both given qualifying offers by the team on Saturday. Raymond Felton Jersey . His stated reason for abruptly resigning as head coach of Canadas Olympic womens hockey team was he felt there were doubts about his ability to coach the team to Olympic gold in February. Paul George Jersey . The Tournament of Champions, which starts Friday, is his first event since a freak accident in Shanghai two months ago. Snedeker was on a Segway scooter during a corporate outing at Sheshan International when he took a tumble and injured his left knee.REGINA -- Its one of the most heart-breaking moments in Saskatchewan Roughriders history but Darian Durant uses it as motivation for the clubs crucial late-season run. Saskatchewan (9-5) hosts the Edmonton Eskimos (3-11) at Mosaic Stadium today after downing B.C. 31-17 last weekend to snap a dismal four-game losing streak. The Riders certainly control their playoff destiny, finishing their regular season with five games against West Division rivals, including three at home. You can watch the game live on TSN at 4:30pm et/1:30pm pt and get in-depth player stats, Twitter Trender and more on TSN.cas GameTracker. Following Fridays walkthrough, Riders coach Corey Chamblin selected Durant to address the team and the veteran quarterbacks message was simple -- at this time of year players must be totally focused and pay attention to even the smallest detail. And he pointed to the 09 Grey Cup, where a too many men penalty against Saskatchewan gave Montreal a second chance at a last-second field goal for the devastating 28-27 victory. "Its a reality," Durant said. "I wanted to let the guys know that its real and it can happen and if you dont pay attention on walkthrough days or you dont get right in certain situations it can cost you a football game, better yet a championship. "You have to lock in." Chamblin said Durants message was loud and clear. "Darian is the leader of this team, as the quarterback goes the team goes," Chamblin said. "One of the greatest things about life is when you have setbacks youre able to learn from them . . . if you cant learn from those youre deemed to repeat them again." Saskatchewan enters weekend action tied with B.C. for second in the West Division behind front-running Calgary (11-3). With the Lions visiting the Stampeders on Friday night, the Riders are in a must-win situation in their quest for a home playoff game. And for running back Kory Sheets, playing three of the next four games at Mosaic Stadium certainly enhances those chances. "Thats a big advantage," said Sheets. "No one wants to come to Saskatchewan." A point not lost upon Durant. "Its all about getting into a spot where we can host a game here," he said. "Were still in good position, the schedule gods have set us up that we have three of these last four games here but we have to take it one at a time. "Edmonton isnt going to be an easy team. Theyre hungry so we have to make sure were ready." Sheets ran for 80 yards and two TDs last week against B.C., his first after missing three games with a knee injury. The win over the Lions keeps the Riders in the race for a home playoff game, which they can achieve by either finishing first or second in the West Division standings. Predictably, Sheets -- the CFLs second-leading rusher with 1,302 yards -- and the Riders are thinking big. "Were looking for a first-round bye," Sheets said, which would happen if the Riders finished atop the West Division standings. Many football pundits pointed to Sheets return to the lineup as a big reason why the Riders snapped their dubious losing streak. But Sheets wouldnt take the credit. "It wasnt me,, one man being back in there," Sheets said.dddddddddddd"I think it was more the energy I brought." Sheets return certainly enhanced Saskatchewans rushing attack and gave the Riders offence a more balanced attack. But Durant said when the weather turns cold, having a potent ground game will certainly be an advantage. "Kory Sheets is a concern for everybody," said Eskimos defensive end Odell Willis. "Hes a great back in this league. Hes putting up great numbers. Hes doing great things. You have to be aware of where he is at all times." Another key figure could be defensive lineman Alex Hall, obtained earlier this week from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Hall has a CFL-high 15 sacks and his arrival certainly rejuvenated Saskatchewans defence. "You could see a couple of D-linemen had great pass rushes during the week," Chamblin said. "Usually when you bring a newer player in, its like anything else guys get excited especially when you bring in the league sack leader." Saskatchewan slotback Geroy Simon said he can sense his teammates getting into a playoff frame of mind. "The intensity level is starting to ramp up," Simon said. But Chamblin emphasized the team continues to take the same approach it has all season, that being one game at a time. "Id say its playoff atmosphere, its getting cold outside," Chamblin said. "But we still preach 1-0." Its been a rough season for Edmonton, which is coming off a lopsided 47-24 home loss to Montreal. But the Eskimos still boast a solid aerial attack with starter Mike Reilly (3,345 yards, 21 TDs) and slotback Fred Stamps (59 catches for 1,066 yards and 11 TDs, both CFL highs). Reilly started against Montreal despite suffering a concussion the week before against Toronto. He completed 13-of-21 passes for 180 yards and two interceptions before giving way to rookie Jonathan Crompton, who was 13-of-26 passing for 204 yards with three TDs and three interceptions. "I feel good. Im ready to play," said Reilly on Friday. "Its going to be loud. Its going to be crazy." Despite his concussion, Reilly will not stay in the pocket if the opportunity to run presents itself. "If thats what the defence gives us," said Reilly. "As long as they play the game theyve been playing all year, Ill play my usual style." Both Reilly and Stamps acknowledged Edmontons precarious playoff position. "We feel good as a team. Were fine," said Stamps. "Were going to take it one game at a time." Edmonton will be without linebacker JC Sherritt, who is out indefinitely after re-fracturing his left thumb against Montreal. The CFLs outstanding defensive player last year initially fractured his thumb in a 30-29 loss to Hamilton on Aug. 2. He required surgery and missed four games before returning to the lineup. "Its disappointing not to have JC," said Eskimos head coach Kavis Reed, who feels injuries must be treated with respect so they dont get worse. This will mark the third meeting this year between the two teams. Saskatchewan took the first two games -- both in Edmonton -- and will host the Eskimos again Nov. 2.
