INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indianapolis Colts have claimed center A.Q. Shipley off waivers and started filling out their 10-man practice squad. Shipley played with the Colts in 2012 but was cut by Baltimore on Saturday. He adds depth to an injury-depleted offensive line that was without its top two centers in Thursday night's preseason finale. Indy waived backup center Thomas Austin to make room for Shipley.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Matt Holliday hit his third home run in two games and broke an eighth-inning tie with a two-run single to rally the St. Louis Cardinals past the Chicago Cubs 9-6 yesterday. Holliday had three hits and four RBIs for the Cardinals.
