Braves vs. Cardinals Score: Chipper Jones' error gives St. Louis 3-2 lead

The Braves entered the third inning with a 2-0 lead off David Ross' two-run homer off Kyle Lohse. Kris Medlen struck out Peter Kozma to begin the inning. Lohse grounded out to shortstop Andrelton Simmons for the second out. Jon Jay popped out to Chipper Jones at third for the final out of the inning.

In the bottom of the third, Michael Bourn led off the inning with a single up the middle. Atlanta was unable to do anything with it though; Martin Prado struck out, Jason Heyward flied out to shallow left field and Chipper Jones grounded out weakly to second.

In the top of the fourth, Carlos Beltran singled to right field for the Cardinals first hit. Matt Holliday grounded sharply to third, and Jones' wild throw on the double play attempt sailed into right field. With runners on the corner, Allen Craig doubled to left to cut the lead to 2-1. Yadier Molina grounded out to plate the tying run. David Freese then hit a sac fly to bring home Craig from third, giving the Cardinals a 3-2 lead.

In the bottom of the fourth, Freddie Freeman singled to begin the frame. Dan Uggla grounded out to move Freeman into second. David Ross then laid down a bunt single to put runners on the corner. Andrelton Simmons laid down a bunt and was hit by the throw to first, but Simmons was ruled out of the baseline. Medlen then struck out to end the inning.

The game is currently being aired on TBS and on ESPN Radio.
