Benito Santiago drove in three runs with a homer and a triple to help host Florida beat St. Louis, stopping a season-high losing streak at four games. Junior Felix broke out of a 6-for-34 slump with two doubles and scored twice. Chris Hammond (8-4) was knocked out in the sixth inning but still won his sixth straight start to reach a career high in victories. The left-hander won seven games each of the past two seasons with Cincinnati. Brian Harvey pitched the final 1 innings for his 21st save, despite giving up his first earned run since April 24, a stretch of 23 innings. Tom Pagnozzi hit his fourth home run of the season with one out in the ninth. Harvey, who pitched out of a two-on, one-out jam in the eighth, has converted 20 straight save opportunities.
