Allen Craig coaxed a walk and one out later Molina supplied a two-run single, icing the victory and evening the three-game series at Busch Stadium.

Molina also smacked a two-run homer, finishing with four RBI, while Mitchell Boggs (1-1) earned the Cardinals' third win in four games with 1 1/3 scoreless frames.

Mike Moustakas went 3-for-5 with four RBI, including a solo homer, while Alex Gordon added three hits in the Royals' loss.
