Cardinals Rally To Defeat Pirates
Matt Holliday had the go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning after Kolten Wong's pinch-hit homer tied the score, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday. St. Louis took sole possession of first place in the NL Central for the first time this season with its third straight win. The Cardinals moved one game ahead of Milwaukee, which lost to the Chicago Cubs. St. Louis scored three in the seventh. Wong homered off Pittsburgh starter Gerrit Cole (7-5) to tie the score at 4-all. Jon Jay followed with a triple and scored on Holliday's single to left. Holliday, who also had a two-run double in the third, is 7 for 11 with three home runs and 12 RBIs in the last three games.
Seth Maness (6-3) picked up win in relief. Trevor Rosenthal got the last three outs for his 41st save.

No-Hitter In Atlanta
UNDATED (AP) - The Philadelphia Phillies have authored the fourth no-hitter of the major league season, and they needed four pitchers to do it. Cole Hamels combined with three relievers on the Phillies' first no-hitter since 2010, doing it in a 7-0 shutout of the Braves in Atlanta. It was the first combined no-hitter in Phillies history, and the 12th overall. Hamels struck out seven, walked five and threw 108 pitches in six innings before Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and closer Jonathan Papelbon each pitched a perfect inning of relief. Ben Revere provided a bases-loaded triple and five RBIs for the Phillies. The outcome drops the Braves 1 1/2 games behind Milwaukee for the second National League wild-card berth.

Astros Fire Porter
HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Astros have fired manager Bo Porter and bench coach Dave Trembley with the team mired in fourth place in the five-team AL West. The Astros have the second-worst record in the league and are 25 games out of first place. Tom Lawless will serve as interim manager through the end of the season.

Kirk Wins Deutsche Bank Championship
NORTON, Mass. (AP) - Chris Kirk closed with a 5-under 66 to win the Deutsche Bank Championship near Boston. Kirk came up with three big putts on the back nine to pull away for a two-shot victory over Geoff Ogilvy, Billy Horschel and Russell Henley. Kirk has three career victories, including two this season as he tries to gain one of the three Ryder Cup picks that will be announced today.

Europe Makes Wild-Card Selections For Ryder Cup
VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) - Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood and Stephen Gallacher are Europe's wild-card selections for this month's Ryder Cup against the United States at Gleneagles. Former No. 1 Luke Donald was the high-profile player overlooked by Europe captain Paul McGinley when he announced his three picks Tuesday at European Tour headquarters at Wentworth. Gallacher, a Scot, is one of three rookies in the 12-man European team, along with Victor Dubuisson and Jamie Donaldson. The other players who qualified automatically for McGinley's team are Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose, Martin Kaymer, Thomas Bjorn and Graeme McDowell. Donald has been on the winning side in each of his four appearances for Europe but has struggled for form this year after making changes to his swing. The Ryder Cup will be played from Sept. 26-28.
