IN BRIEF : Cardinals Slip Past Padres, 6-5

From Times wire services

Milt Thompson drove in three runs and St. Louis weathered both a shaky start and finish to defeat the San Diego Padres 6-5 today.

Jose DeLeon, 6-2, who gave up four San Diego singles and a walk before he retired a batter, worked seven-plus innings, giving up six hits, walking four and striking out three to become the National League's first six-game winner.

The Cardinals won their seventh straight at home as Eric Show, 4-4, took the loss. Dan Quisenberry, who came on in the eighth, got his first NL save and the 239th of his career.
