 Led by Colby Rasmus, the Cardinals' offense provided enough pop for starter Jake Westbrook as St. Louis dropped the Rays, 5-3.  Rasmus hit a three-run homer and drove in four as the Cards won their fourth straight.  Westbrook tossed seven scoreless innings, giving up just two hits and striking out seven, to improve to 7-and-4.  Wade Davis equaled Westbrook's seven innings of work for Tampa Bay, but surrendered two runs to suffer the loss.  Evan Longoria hit an RBI double and Matt Joyce tacked on a two-run home run in the Rays failed comeback attempt.  The loss is Tampa Bay's third in four games.  Rays manager Joe Maddon, pitcher David Price, reliever J.P. Howell and shortstop Elliot Price were all ejected in the top of the eighth inning for arguing.
