    ANAHEIM, Calif. - St. Louis scored more runs than the Los Angeles Angels had allowed in their previous six games combined, and the Cardinals table-setters were responsible for driving in half of them. Jon Jay had three RBIs, including a two-run homer off centre fielder Mike Trouts glove during St. Louis seven-run second inning, and the Cardinals ended Los Angeles seven-game winning streak with a 12-2 rout on Wednesday night. Matt Carpenter, batting leadoff in front of Jay, also homered and drove in three runs to help keep the Cardinals two games behind Pittsburgh in the NL Central. "Matt Carpenter sets the tone for us, and he had a terrific game," manager Mike Matheny said. "He put together good at-bats and he doesnt give any away. It was also nice to see John Jay have some real nice at-bats. We need to get him going, and today was a real good indicator that hes on the right path. Hes been making some adjustments that are allowing him to have good at-bats, and it worked out for him today." Shelby Miller (9-6) struck out six over six innings and allowed five hits, including a two-run homer by Hank Conger in the second. The right-hander was coming off back-to-back losses against two other AL West clubs, including a 6-1 defeat last Friday at Oakland in which he lasted only 1 2-3 innings and gave up five runs. "I wouldnt say I was any fresher tonight. I mean, I threw 51 pitches in the second inning at Oakland and thats going to wear your arm down more so than going eight innings and throwing 100 pitches," Miller said. "But I felt strong, so I basically wanted to try to go deep in the ballgame. My pitch (count) rose up again, but I got some big plays behind me. "The biggest thing was just trying to get the ball down and hit the corners," Miller added. "I felt like I was on the corners — not the whole game, but more so than I had been. My fastball command was better and I felt like my curve ball was sharper. I just made that one mistake to Conger where I did that slide-step and tried to fool him with the curve, but I just hung it and left it right over the middle of the plate." Jerome Williams (5-4) was charged with seven runs, four hits and four walks in just 1 2-3 innings. The right-hander had not given up more than three bases on balls in any of his previous 17 starts. "After winning that many in a row, you almost always think youre due for a butt-kicking," Angels right fielder Josh Hamilton said. "Youd rather lose one like this than a really close one, but youve got to put it behind you." One night after the Angels scored all of their runs in the second inning of a series-opening 5-1 victory, the Cardinals sent 12 men to the plate in the second after Williams had set them down 1-2-3 in the first. The seven-run rally included a two-run double by David Descalso, and a two-run homer by Jay that Trout had in his glove for an instant before it popped out as his arm made contact with the top of the fence. "The hardest play to make is when you get there at the same time as the ball," Hamilton said. "Youre moving pretty good when you get there and dont have time to really have a chance to time anything." Yadier Molina, who raised his NL-leading average to .352 after going 3 for 4 with a walk, greeted Garrett Richards with an RBI single that delivered the seventh run. The Angels got two runs back in the bottom half on Congers fifth homer after a two-out walk to Alberto Callaspo. But David Freese scored an unearned run in the Cardinals third when Richards mishandled a throw from first baseman Mark Trumbo on Carpenters two-out grounder behind the bag. St. Louis increased the margin to 10-2 in the fifth on a run-scoring, ground-rule double by Carpenter and an RBI single by Jay, who had driven in only one run in his previous 35 at-bats coming in. It was only his second game this season with three or more RBIs, the other on May 4 when he had four at Milwaukee. Carpenter ended the scoring in the eighth with his eighth homer, a solo shot off Billy Buckner. NOTES: Matheny caught Williams when they were teammates in San Francisco during the 2005 season. ... St. Louis LF Matt Holliday didnt play for the second straight night because of a pinched nerve in his neck. ... Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright was named the NL pitcher of the month for June after going 4-2 with a 1.77 ERA in six starts, including a pair of complete-game 7-1 victories over San Francisco and Oakland. He is the only one on the staff this season to average at least seven innings per outing. ... Molina was back in the fifth spot in the batting order, after hitting in the two hole the previous six games and going 7 for 25 with a homer and three RBIs. ... Cardinals LF Allen Craig drew three walks in the first four innings, matching the total he had in 116 plate appearances over his previous 28 games. He has 18 this season in 338 plate appearances. ... Wednesday was the fourth anniversary of Albert Pujols 10th career grand slam with the Cardinals, which broke Stan Musials franchise record. ... Jays only other interleague home run came on June 30, 2011, at Baltimore against Brian Matusz. ... The Angels have committed 61 errors, the second-most in the AL. The Cardinals have made 34, the fewest in the NL. ... Howie Kendricks 102 hits are the most by an Angels second baseman before the All-Star break. Reggie Ragland Jersey. PETERSBURG, Fla.

While the Dodgers are preparing for the playoffs, the Padres showed their future has promise behind two rookies. ARL Commission chairman John Grants deteriorating funding negotiations could trigger a war within NRL clubland, Cronulla veteran Paul Gallen is warning.The premiers have much to lose if a deal between the league and clubs over funding and the salary cap is not finalised soon, with rival clubs circling the Sharks long list of off-contract stars.The saga looks no closer to resolution with Canterbury chairman Ray Dib reportedly telling Grant he is refusing to attend any further meetings while he heads the commission due to a loss of confidence.I can certainly understand the frustration of the clubs, Gallen told Sky Sports Radio on Monday.Our clubs trying to sign the majority of our team. I reckon 75 per cent of our team will be off contract next year.Last week, Grant and NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg refused to sign off on agreement to fund each franchise at 130 per cent of the salary cap from 2018.The funding model, which was agreed to by both parties last year, was set to deliver an extra $100 million to the 16 clubs per year.However Grant argued that they could no longer afford it - with a number of other issues taking precedence, including grassroots funding, takinng over the NRLs digital arm from Telstra in 2018 and a sinking fund to support struggling clubs.ddddddddddddThe Sharks, like most clubs, have a crop of stars off contract at the end of the 2017 season, including premiership players Valentine Holmes, Jack Bird, Ricky Leutele, Wade Graham, Gerard Beale, Sosaia Feki, Chris Heighington, Sam Tagataese and Chad Towsend.They (Cronulla) are trying to extend guys out like Valentine Holmes, Jack Bird and Ricky Leutele and all these young guns in the game and they dont know where the caps going to be, Gallen said.They dont know where the fundings coming from. Its very hard at the moment, because other clubs can poach players now.Its really difficult for clubs at the moment and you dont want to see a war in the game, so to speak.But I hope they get it sorted out soon and we can all move forward and clubs can start signing players and we know what direction were headed in.Grant is set for a showdown with a NRL clubs at a meeting this week after refusing to apologise or backtrack over the funding impasse.
