ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jake Westbrook allowed a run in seven innings and the St. Louis Cardinals snapped a three-game losing streak in manager Tony La Russa's first game back from illness, capitalizing on Cliff Lee's career-high six walks to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 Monday night.

Lee (2-4) is winless in six starts since throwing a three-hit shutout at Washington on April 14 and departed after 122 pitches in 6 1-3 innings. Ryan Theriot, Matt Holliday and Lance Berkman walked twice apiece off Lee, helping the Cardinals rebound after getting swept at Cincinnati.

Fernando Salas worked the ninth for his fourth save in four chances.

The Phillies totaled four hits and had only three runners in scoring position against Westbrook (3-3).
