      Freese's home run lifts Cardinals

      Jaime Garcia won for the sixth time at home and David Freese homered for the first time since April 12, helping the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-2 for a four-game split heading into the All-Star break.

      Albert Pujols had two hits and Matt Holliday had an RBI single and a walk for the Cardinals, who were tied for the NL Central lead and have a roster finally healthy for the second half.

      They're 3-3 since getting Pujols back from the DL and Freese prospered batting fifth after going 2 for 12 the previous three games batting second.

      Brian Roberts hit a two-run homer for the Diamondbacks, who completed a 5-5 trip and are in second place in the NL West.
