Cardinals vs. Braves score update: St. Louis scores 2 in 7th to take 6-2 lead

The St. Louis Cardinals added two runs in the top of the seventh inning to take a 6-2 lead on the Atlanta Braves in Friday's Wild Card game.

The Cardinals took advantage of more throwing errors by Atlanta, as David Freese was able to make it to second on a throwing error by Dan Uggla to get the inning started. Freese was replaced by Adron Chambers, who was subsequently sacrificed over to third base by Daniel Descalso. Another throwing error -- this time by Andrelton Simmons -- allowed Chambers to score St. Louis' fifth run. Simmons' error, which came on a ground ball hit by Pete Kozma, allowed Kozma to advance into scoring position, and he scored on a Matt Carpenter infield hit.

The Cardinals take a four-run lead into the bottom half of the seventh, and both teams' starting pitchers have been removed from the contest. Lance Lynn took over for St. Louis starter Kyle Lohse, and the Braves finished the seventh with Jonny Venters on the mound.
