Errors Pave Way for Braves, 6-4

August 05, 2000|From Associated Press

ST. LOUIS — Tom Glavinewon his seventh consecutive start as the Atlanta Braves defeated the St. Louis Cardinals, 6-4, Friday night.

Glavine (14-5), unbeaten since June 27 at Montreal, allowed three runs and six hits in six innings. He improved his record against St. Louis to 13-4--including 8-1 at Busch Stadium, where he's unbeaten in 10 starts since Aug. 20, 1990.

Atlanta, 15-5 since the All-Star break, had lost two in a row for the first time since July 5-6. The Braves, who got a go-ahead, two-run homer from Andres Galarraga, have the major leagues' best record at 67-42.

It was the first meeting of the year between the division leaders. The Braves were 8-1 against the Cardinals last year and 71-43 against them in the 1990s.

Will Clark, acquired Monday from Baltimore, homered on the first pitch he saw in his first home game at Busch Stadium, earning a standing ovation and curtain call from a season-high sellout crowd of 48,901. Clark is five for six with two homers since being traded from Baltimore, but made one the Cardinals' four errors Friday.
