Despite issuing nine walks and committing three errors, the Miami Marlins still had a chance to beat the Braves.
An unexpected string of four consecutive starts has helped Gerald Laird find his swing.
Nolan Arenado's ill-fated head-first slide into second base left the Rockies without a key bat in the middle of their lineup.
Manager Fredi Gonzalez hopes the Atlanta Braves' offensive drought won't last much longer.
Tony Cruz became the second Cardinals catcher to leave with an injury Thursday night after a foul ball bounced up and hit his right hand.
"We're 17-11, and I don't think we've hit like we can hit all year," Laird said. "We've been struggling for runs and getting a three-run homer to give us a lead, but I think this team is capable of scoring a lot more runs. Just be patient and don't have guys pressing. If we keep pitching the way we are, we're going to win a lot of games."
Laird said he knows his role is to play behind Gattis but added "I'm ready to go every day, four , five, six, seven in a row, I'll do it."
