ATLANTA -- When Andrelton Simmons botched a grounder, the St. Louis Cardinals seized their opportunity. For the Atlanta Braves, it was another night of missed chances. Matt Carpenters two-run double that helped carry St. Louis past the slumping Braves, who shook up their lineup but still lost their seventh in a row, 4-3 on Monday. The Cardinals scored three runs in the fifth inning, taking advantage of shaky defence by Atlantas Gold Glove shortstop. In fact, Simmons had a couple of plays that couldve been scored errors but were initially ruled hits. The second one was changed to an E-6 and turned out to be especially costly, leading to a pair of unearned runs. St. Louis built a 4-0 lead and barely held on to win the series opener. "It was big," Carpenter said. "Especially when we got out to a big lead, to be able to hold them off, that was big for us." Desperate for more offence, Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez batted pitcher Aaron Harang eighth and put second baseman Ramiro Pena in the ninth spot. Pena had two hits, including a seventh-inning homer that brought the Braves within a run, but they couldnt overcome a 4-0 deficit. Juston Upton took a called third strike from Trevor Rosenthal to end the game with the potential tying run at second base -- Uptons fourth strikeout of the night and extending Atlantas woes with runners in scoring position. The Braves were 1 for 12 in those situations and are 6 of 51 during their losing streak, though Freddie Freeman saw some encouraging signs. "We hit some balls hard with runners on," he said. "We were in the game the whole game. We couldnt say that the past week." The last time the Braves had such a lengthy skid was May 21-28, 2012, when they dropped eight in a row. Their longest losing streak last season was four straight. Shelby Miller (4-2) got a shaky win, giving up six hits and two runs in five-plus innings. Trevor Rosenthal pitched out of trouble for his ninth save, giving up a leadoff single to Simmons. Jordan Schafer bunted the runner to second, but Pena flied out to right before Upton whiffed. Harang (3-3) took the loss, though he pitched much better than his previous start, when he was pounded for nine runs by the Marlins. This time, he gave up four runs in six innings but only two were earned. The game was scoreless until the fifth, when Peter Bourjos led off with a single before Mark Ellis grounded one off Simmons glove. The shortstop, looking to make a force at second, appeared to take his eyes off the ball as it skipped past him. After Miller bunted the runners to second and third, Carpenter doubled to right-centre to bring them both in. Matt Holiday followed with a hard liner past third baseman Chris Johnson to make it 3-0. "Those things happen," Harang said of Simmons error. "I told him not to be too hard on himself. Hes probably going to save my butt plenty of times this year." St. Louis added another run in the fifth on Bourjos RBI single, but Gonzalez challenged a call at third base that had seemingly given the Cardinals a 5-0 lead. Yadier Molinas bases-loaded grounder ricocheted off Harangs leg, right to Johnson at third. He caught it and blindly stepped back in search of the bag and managed to barely nick it, as the replay showed. The called was quickly overturned after a review of only 37 seconds. The Braves knocked out Miller in the bottom half of the sixth, the first three hitters reaching safely. The Cardinals went to the bullpen after Evan Gattis RBI single, and B.J. Upton followed with a sacrifice fly off Pat Neshek. Neshek escaped the jam by striking out Simmons. NOTES: The Cardinals sent pitcher RHP Joe Kelly back to St. Louis to continue his rehab from a strained left hamstring. "Joe just wasnt to the point where they thought they could push him, so keeping him around the rest of this road trip didnt make any sense," general manager John Mozeliak said. "I dont know Id call it a setback as much as he just wasnt progressing as quickly as we wanted." ... Atlanta RHP Gavin Floyd will make his season debut when he starts Tuesday against LHP Tyler Lyons (0-2) of the Cardinals. Floyd is coming back from Tommy John surgery and will start in place of Ervin Santana, who has a bruised right thumb. John Smoltz Jersey .

Less than 48 hours after pouring in 36 points, a personal best, leading his team to a comeback win in Cleveland, Williams was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week, earning the honour for the first time in his 10-year NBA career. Averaging 23.7 points off the bench and shooting 53 per cent from three-point range, Williams helped propel the Raptors to a 3-0 record from November 17-23. In Wednesdays win over Memphis, Williams registered 13 points in just 18 minutes before scoring 22 in 19 minutes Friday night against Milwaukee. The Raptors trailed by 15 when he entered Saturdays contest midway through the opening quarter. Scoring 12 quick points, Williams fueled Torontos 110-93 victory over LeBron James and the Cavaliers. Ive never really set my career on individual goals, said Williams, who found out about the award in a text from his PR department Monday morning. I wasnt waiting [for it] or anything. Ive put together some solid games this week so it was pretty cool to get that text. Acquired in an off-season trade from Atlanta - one that also brought Lucas Nogueira to Toronto in exchange for the right to waive John Salmons - Williams leads all Eastern Conference reserves in scoring, averaging 13.4 points in his first 13 games with the Raptors. He has scored in double figures in nine of his last 10 outings. After undergoing serious knee surgery to repair a torn ACL midway through his first year with the Hawks, Williams spent most of last season trying to rediscover what made him one of tthe leagues top reserves as a member of the 76ers.dddddddddddd When youre sitting there and you have a cast on and wheelchair and crutches and cant lift your leg up, you cant ride a bike, you cant run, you cant jog, obviously theres going to be some doubt there, said Williams, who admits he never felt like himself in Atlanta. Two years later its great to see some fruits of the labour to feel myself back to 100 per cent, being back healthy and having some success. In his recovery, Williams leaned on other players who have sustained similar injuries, including Celtics star Rajon Rondo and Raptors guard Kyle Lowry, who tore his ACL as a freshman in college. A prolific scorer off the bench once again, the 28-year-old combo guard has blossomed into Torontos closer less than a month into his tenure with the Raptors. Leading the team in fourth-quarter scoring with 52 points in 87 minutes played, Williams has attempted Torontos final shot in seven of eight quarters during their most recent back-to-back set, connecting on three buzzer-beaters. Lou could probably start on some teams but hes made a living on being the sixth man off the bench and hes back healthy again, said Dwane Casey. Hes a big plus for our second unit. We needed every punch he had the other night in Cleveland. Williams becomes the sixth Raptor to earn Player of the Week honours, joining Chris Bosh and Vince Carter - seven-time winners of the award - along with Mike James, Jalen Rose and Lowry. Hes the first bench player to be named Player of the Week since Suns forward Markieff Morris won it out West on Nov. 11, 2013.
