DENVER — Jason LaRue, subbing at catcher for injured All-Star Yadier Molina, homered off Ubaldo Jimenez to break a seventh-inning tie and the St. Louis Cardinals clinched the NL Central crown when they beat the Colorado Rockies, 6-3, Saturday night behind right-hander Adam Wainwright (19-8).

Colorado's lead in the NL wild-card race shrunk to 2 1/2 games over the Atlanta Braves, who beat Washington, 11-5, Saturday.
