ST. LOUIS -- Chad Billingsley strode to the mound feeling like a winner.

Even though the Los Angeles Dodgers' right-hander was stuck on a five-start losing streak for a couple extra weeks while sidelined with elbow inflammation, he said there was no stewing before taming the St. Louis Cardinals for six innings in a 5-3 victory Monday night.

Luis Cruz powered the Dodgers' fifth straight victory with a three-run homer in the second. Cruz, recalled July 2 to replaced injured shortstop Dee Gordon, has two career homers and 12 RBIs. Eight of his 14 hits are for extra bases.
