ATLANTA (AP) -- Rick Ankiel drove in two runs for St. Louis to back another strong outing by Joel Pineiro, who equaled the best start of his career when the Cardinals edged the Atlanta Braves 3-2 Monday night.

Ankiel had a pair of two-out, run-scoring singles, one in the second inning to push the Cardinals to a 2-0 lead and another in the seventh for a 3-1 edge.

Pineiro (4-0) went 6 2-3 innings, allowing seven hits and a pair of runs while walking none. He also won his first four decisions for Seattle in 2001.

Ryan Franklin worked the ninth for his sixth save in as many chances.
