MIAMI (AP) – Lance Berkman’s second double of the game brought home Albert Pujols with the go-ahead run in the eighth inning, and the St. Louis Cardinals held on to beat the Florida Marlins 3-2 on Friday night.

Pujols doubled off Florida starter Anibal Sanchez (6-5) to lead off the inning, and Berkman drove Sanchez’s final pitch of the game into center field to put St. Louis on top.

Matt Holliday hit his 18th home run for St. Louis. Mitchell Boggs (1-3) threw a scoreless seventh for the win, and Lance Lynn struck out Mike Stanton with the bases loaded to end the game and seal his first major-league save.

Stanton had three hits, including a triple, and stole a base for the Marlins.
