ST. LOUIS -- Allen Craig is starting to feel comfortable and the St. Louis Cardinals are hoping that continues for a long time. Craig, batting cleanup, had three hits, drove in a run and scored twice and Lance Lynn allowed two runs over seven innings to lead the Cardinals to a 5-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night. After batting.315 with 97 RBIs in 134 games in 2013, Craig has struggled to find his stroke. He was hitting .192 on April 29, but his average has risen slowly but steadily since. He was up to .231 after Fridays game. Craig said he is feeling better and better at the plate, even if the results have not been readily apparent. "Guys know when theyre feeling good in the box," Craig said. "The results may not be there, but you can still feel good and feel like good things are going to happen. Its just a matter of time and being patient. I feel like Im at that point." Nevertheless, Craig was happy with the multihit game. "Im definitely excited because I dont take success for granted," Craig said. "This games tough and a lot goes into having a good game." Lynn (5-2) allowed seven hits walked two and struck out three. He seemed to get stronger as the game went on. "It was just one of those things where everything clicked and all of a sudden I was throwing the ball where I wanted to," Lynn said. "I was throwing the ball in the strike zone and when that happens, its fun to pitch." Carlos Martinez retired the Braves on four pitches in the eighth and Trevor Rosenthal set down the side in order for his 12th save in 13 opportunities. Matt Carpenter and Kolten Wong had two hits each and scored a run for St. Louis. Matt Holiday, Matt Adams and Yadier Molina all drove in a run for the Cardinals. St. Louis finished the game without manager Mike Matheny and centre fielder Peter Bourjos, both of whom were ejected by home plate umpire Sean Barber at the end of the fourth inning for arguing balls and strikes. "I loved to see the fire and the fight that Peter showed there," Matheny said. "Frustrated and knew a couple of pitches didnt get called to what he thought was the strike zone in big situations. You cant take the emotions out of these guys." The Braves Chris Johnson went 2 for 4 with a run scored. Johnson is batting .377 (20 for 53) in May. While Johnson has been hot, his teammates have not. The Braves, who have lost 11 of 16, were held to two or fewer runs for the 18th time. "We get one or even two guys hot and theyre so far apart in the lineup that we dont get it going," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Sooner or later well start swinging like were capable of." Ervin Santana (4-1) took his first loss as a member of the Braves. Santana lasted five innings and allowed five runs and 10 hits with one walk and three strikeouts. St. Louis broke open a 2-2 tie by scoring three times in the fifth. With one out, Carpenter and Wong singled. Holliday followed with an RBI double down the right field line to score Carpenter. Wong scored on Craigs single to left and Molina made it 5-2 with a sacrifice fly. The Braves took a 1-0 lead in the second on a two-out RBI single by Tyler Pastornicky, but the Cardinals tied it in the bottom of the inning on Adams RBI double. After the Braves took a 2-1 lead in the fourth on Andrelton Simmons 6-4-3 double play ball, the Cardinals tied it in the bottom of the frame when Craig scored from third on Santanas wild pitch with two outs. NOTES: Jhonny Peralta stole second in the fourth inning for his first stolen base as a member of the Cardinals. ... Santana had two wild pitches, giving him a total of five, one behind Arizonas Wade Miley for the most in the National League. ... Atlantas Aaron Harang (4-3) will oppose Shelby Miller (5-2) in the second game of the series Saturday. ... Friday was the first time that Santana has allowed five or more earned runs since Aug. 9, 2013, in a 9-6 win over Boston when he was with Kansas City.

LOUIS -- St. Discount Air Max 90 Mens .Mihajlovic was sent off minutes from the end of Thursdays 2-0 win over Brescia and has been punished for using a disrespectful expression toward the fourth official and throwing the contents of a bottle of water at him, thus assuming an intimidating attitude.Its five years since Roscommon last contested a Connacht final but the 2010 champions booked their place in the decider with a 4-16 to 2-13 comeback win over Sligo at Dr Hyde Park. In 2011 Roscommon lost to Mayo in the final, before Mayo went on to secure five Connacht titles in a row, but in the meantime Roscommon have secured back-to-back promotions in the Allianz League.They were in Division 3 as recent as 2014, but in the championship they have struggled and their shock semi-final defeat to Sligo last year was followed by more failure in the qualifiers against Fermanagh. Here they trailed 2-8 to 0-6 at half-time and needed four goals in the second-half from Ciarain Murtagh (two), Senan Kilbride and Enda Smith.Roscommon started well and Conor Devaneys early point sent them on their way, but they always looked unsure at the back with Sean Mullooly a late call-up instead of Neil Collins.

Marren made no mistake and gave Sligo a 1-4 to 0-4 lead.Roscommon needed to get the next score but Murphy heaped on the pressure with another fine effort, before Ciarain Murtagh got Roscommons first point in 12 minutes.Keenan reduced the arrears further but Marren and Hughes hit two more points for Sligo, before they received a huge blow when Marren was shown a black card for an off the ball incident involving David Murray.Hughes got his third of the day as Sligo continued to press, annd they got a deserved second goal just before half-time.dddddddddddd. Donie Shine of Roscommon in action against Noel Gaughan of Sligo Neil Ewing sent in another ball and when Roscommon failed to deal with it at the first attempt, Kyle Cawley latched onto it, his first shot was saved by Murray, but he followed up to find the net.Sligo led 2-8 to 0-6 at half-time but they had a dreadful start to the second-half when Kilbride hit the net inside the first minute. He connected with a Niall Daly delivery to bring Roscommon back into the game.Roscommon dragged themselves level by the 50th minute when Fintan Cregg set up Murtagh to score their second goal.And after he gave them the lead again with a point, he converted a penalty in the 57th minute. Sligo hung in the game but Roscommon had too much firepower and after Enda Smith hit their fourth goal, Daniel Maye was given a black card to add to Sligos misery.Roscommon: G Claffey (0-1, 0-1 45); S McDermott, S Mullooly, N McInerney; S Purcell, J McManus (0-1), D Murray; N Daly, D Shine (0-2); F Cregg (0-1f), C Murtagh (2-2, 0-1f, 1-0 pen), C Devaney (0-3); S Kilbride (1-0), C Cregg, D Keenan (0-3).Subs: N Collins for Purcell (40), E Smith (0-2) for C Cregg (50), D Smith for Kilbride (1-1) (59), C Compton for Shine (59), N Kilroy for F Cregg (69), J McDermott for Keenan (70)Sligo: A Devaney; D Maye, K McDonnell, E Flanagan; Keelan Cawley, A McIntyre, B Egan; N Murphy (0-2), N Gaughan; N Ewing, M Breheny (0-3, 0-3f), C Harrison; A Marren (1-3, 1-0 pen), P Hughes (0-5), Kyle Cawley (1-0).Subs: L Henry for Harrison (23), C Breheny for Marren (35, black), C Henry for Gaughan (63)Referee: Joe McQuillan (Cavan).
