MLB: St. Louis 6, Washington 1

WASHINGTON, June 4 (UPI) -- Yadier Molina's three-run, first-inning homer carried the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-1 rain-delayed victory over the Washington Nationals.

Despite the 2 1/2-hour hold-up, Kyle Lohse (6-2) won his third consecutive start, scattering four hits and a run over five innings.

Ryan Ludwick doubled twice, drove in a run and scored once for the Cardinals. But while St. Louis won for the fifth time in seven games, the victory was clouded by a calf injury to first baseman Albert Pujols, who left in the fourth inning.

Ryan Langerhans drove in the Nationals' only run. Washington has now lost six of its last eight.

Odalis Perez (2-5) gave up four runs -- just one earned -- on five hits over three innings.
