MIAMI -- Mike Lowell's homer sparked a five-run seventh inning that helped the Florida Marlins beat St. Louis 5-3 Saturday night, the Cardinals' sixth loss in seven games.

Cardinals manager Tony La Russa served his one-game suspension for a fight between the Cardinals and Arizona last weekend. La Russa watched the game from a suite while third base coach Jose Oquendo took over.

Jason Simontacchi held the Marlins to two hits through six innings and had a 2-0 lead before Lowell led off the seventh with his fifth homer.

Several of his teammates also got RBI hits in the inning.

Derrek Lee singled, prompting the Cardinals to turn to the bullpen, but pinch-hitters Brian Banks and Mike Redmond also got hits. Lee scored on Redmond's single to even the score at 2.

Juan Pierre, Luis Castillo and Ivan Rodriguez followed with RBI singles up the middle. Pierre and Castillo got hits past drawn-in infields.

The victory was Florida's seventh come-from-behind win this season and fourth when trailing after six innings.

Josh Beckett (2-2) gave up two runs on six hits and a walk in seven innings, winning for the first time in four starts.

The Cardinals scored an unearned run in the eighth off reliever Armando Almanza, but Braden Looper recorded four outs for his fourth save.

Steve Kline (0-3) allowed a hit and a run and got his second loss in as many outings. He also picked up the loss Thursday night at Atlanta.

The Cardinals scored runs in the fourth and sixth innings.

Albert Pujols walked, moved to third on Jim Edmonds' double and scored on a wild pitch. Edmonds finished with three doubles.

Edmonds also doubled in the sixth, a fly ball that left fielder Todd Hollandsworth lost in the lights. Orlando Palmeiro scored on the play.

Phillies 10, Giants 2

PHILADELPHIA -- Bobby Abreu homered, scored four runs and knocked in three for Philadelphia.

Jim Thome also homered and drove in two runs for the Phillies, who have won four of five. Abreu is 9-for-19 with nine RBIs and seven runs scored in his last five games.

The loss snapped the Giants' three-game winning streak, but their 18-5 start still matches their best since moving to San Francisco in 1958 -- tying the 1962 and 1971 teams.

ATLANTA -- Marcus Giles hit a solo home run in the seventh as Atlanta rallied.

With one out, Giles lined the first pitch he saw from reliever Valerio De Los Santos (0-2) into the seats in right-center, a 410-foot shot that gave the Braves their 10th victory in 12 games.

A night after the Brewers hit five homers in a 12-5 victory, they managed only five hits. Richie Sexson, who hit three home runs in that game, went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts.
