SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Tim Rattay threw for 236 yards and three touchdowns and the defense dominated for three quarters Sunday, giving San Francisco a 30-10 win over St. Louis.

Jeff Garcia, the 49ers starting quarterback, was sidelined with a left ankle injury. In stepped Rattay, a fourth-year pro who was stellar after 56 games as a backup.

He completed 19 of 29 passes and found Terrell Owens, rookie Brandon Lloyd and Tai Streets with scoring strikes. He threw to nine different receivers.

San Francisco (4-5) rolled up 389 yards of offense -- most of it early -- and cruised to just its second win in its last 10 meetings with St. Louis.

The Rams (5-3) were held to three points through 45 minutes.

Torry Holt had 11 catches for 200 yards and a score for St. Louis.
