St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - Matt Holliday homered among four hits and drove in a season-high five runs in a wild game that ended with the St. Louis Cardinals beating the Kansas City Royals, 10-7.

Yadier Molina added a two-run homer and drove in four for the Cardinals, who have won three of four and blew a 6-1 lead in this one.

After St. Louis had a triple play overturned in the first inning, it scored six consecutive runs to take a five-run lead after two innings. However, Kansas City scored the game's next six runs to grab the lead in the top of the seventh.

Following the Royals' three-run seventh, St. Louis scored three runs in the home half, aided by Holliday's game-tying single and Molina's eventual game- winning two-run single with two outs in the inning.

The rally made a winner of Mitchell Boggs (1-1), who threw 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief, and a loser of Tim Collins (4-1).

Mike Moustakas homered, had three hits and tied a career-high with four RBI for the Royals, who had won their previous four games.
