CARDINALS 5, PHILLIES 0

St. Louis closer Jason Isringhausen, making his first appearance in six days, threw a scoreless inning in the Cardinals' 5-0 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday in Jupiter, Fla.

Isringhausen, who sat out because of tightness in his forearm, needed only 10 pitches to get through the fifth inning.

Woody Williams allowed three hits and struck out two in four scoreless innings.

Phillies starter Brandon Duckworth worked three innings and gave up five runs -- four earned -- on six hits.

Mike DiFelice had a two-run double and Edgar Renteria had a run-scoring single in the Cardinals' three-run third. Kerry Robinson drew a bases-loaded walk and Williams drove in a run with a fielder's choice in the first.
