PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 11 (UPI) -- Matt Holliday backed Jake Westbrook's strong outing with a three-run homer Saturday, boosting the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-1 win over Philadelphia.

With St. Louis trailing 1-0 in the sixth, John Jay singled and Allen Craig (3-for-5, two runs scored) doubled with none out off Cliff Lee (2-7) and Holliday followed by smacking a pitch into the first row of the right field seats.

Holliday went 3-for-5 and reached base for his 34th consecutive game.

Westbrook (12-8) held the Phillies to one run on four hits over 7 2/3 innings, walking two and striking out three.

Jason Motte picked up his 26th save for St. Louis, which evened its three-game series.

Lee finished by allowing four runs on 10 hits in a seven-inning stint.

Ryan Howard drove in the Phillies' only run.
