   Five prisoners being held in the Wellston city jail are free, even though their warrants haven't been cleared.  

   Officials released all the prisoners Wednesday night because the police department could no longer afford to feed them.  The cash-strapped city had stopped providing funds for inmate meals.  

   Police officers began dipping into their own pockets to buy them food, but the city refused to reimburse the officers.

   All of the prisoners released were being held on misdemeanor warrants.

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Lance Lynn allowed one run over seven innings and the St. Louis Cardinals scored three times in the third in a 3-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday.

Matt Carpenter, Jon Jay and Matt Adams drove in runs for the Cardinals, who have won seven of nine.

Philadelphia has lost five in a row, tying a season high. The Phillies also dropped five straight from June 7-12.

St. Louis has the most wins in the majors at 62 and is a season-high 25 games over .500.

Lynn (12-5) had dropped four of his previous five decisions and was 3-4 with a 6.32 ERA in his past eight starts.

He returned to his early season form on Thursday.

Lynn, who was 8-1 with a 2.76 ERA in his first 12 starts, gave up just five hits against the slumping Phillies, who have scored just nine runs during the five-game skid. He struck out six and walked four.

Lynn, whose last win came on July 7, retired eight batters in a row from the fourth through seventh innings. He set the side down in order in the fifth and sixth on a combined 23 pitches.

Closer Edward Mujica picked up his 30th save in 32 opportunities. He struck out two and is tied with Pittsburgh's Jason Grilli for the most saves in the NL. Trevor Rosenthal pitched a scoreless eighth for the Cardinals.

St. Louis scored three times on four hits off Philadelphia starter Kyle Kendrick (9-7) in the third.

Carpenter drove in Pete Kozma with a one-out single. Jay followed with an RBI triple and Adams added a run-scoring single.

Erik Kratz drove in the Phillies' run with a single in the fourth.

Philadelphia outfielder Steve Susdorf grounded into a double play in the seventh in his major league debut. He was recalled earlier in the day to replace Domonic Brown, who was placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list.

Notes: St. Louis OF Matt Holliday is expected to come off the disabled list on Saturday. Holliday's wife Leslee gave birth to a son, Reid Joshua, on Wednesday night. Holliday was placed on the 15-day disabled list on July 12 with a right hamstring strain. ... The Cardinals open an 11-game road trip on Friday in Atlanta. Adam Wainwright (13-5, 2.44) will face Mike Minor (9-5, 2.88) in the opener of a three-game series. Philadelphia begins a three-game series in Detroit on Friday. Cole Hamels (4-12, 4.16) takes on Doug Fister (8-5, 3.90) in the series opener.
