PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Adron Chambers drove in the go-ahead run with his first major league hit and Tyler Greene added an RBI double in the 11th inning to help St. Louis beat Philadelpha 4-2, keeping the Cardinals' playoff push alive while putting the Phillies' title celebration on hold.

St. Louis appeared to have the game won in the ninth, but Corey Patterson dropped Carlos Ruiz's drive to right with two outs allowing the tying run to score.

The Phillies (97-51), who have already clinched no worse than the wild card, entered the game with a magic number of two to clinch their fifth straight NL East title, needing a win combined with loss by the Atlanta Braves to the New York Mets.

Yadier Molina homered and Albert Pujols went 4-for-4 for the Cardinals, who won for the eighth time in nine games.
