Chambers' first hit leads Cards to win over Phils

Adron Chambers' first major league hit ahead run in the 11th inning, as the surging St. Louis 2, in the opener of a four-game series at Citizens Bank Park.

Rafael Furcal doubled off Michael Schwimer (1-1) to begin the 11th for St. Louis. After Corey Patterson, whose misplay in the ninth enabled the tying run to score, sacrificed the runner to second, Schwimer intentionally walked Albert Pujols before Chambers broke a 2-2 tie with the single to right field. Pujols then scored on a double by Tyler Greene.

Fernando Salas pitched around a one-out single in the bottom of the inning to earn his 24th save of the season, while Kyle McClellan (12-6) picked up the win.
