Cardinals top Cubs after six-run first inning

July 29 2018 9:05 AM

The St Louis Cardinals used a big first inning to pull away from the Chicago Cubs in a 6-2 MLB victory on Saturday.

St Louis scored all six runs in the opening frame to cruise past Chicago at Busch Stadium.

The victory moved the Cardinals to 53-51 for the season, while Cubs fell to 60-44.

Cardinals infielder Matt Carpenter led off the bottom of the first with a bunt single. The next two batters reached base before Cubs starter Jose Quintana walked in a run.

Marcell Ozuna then followed with a grand slam over the left-center field fence to extend St Louis' lead. Yairo Munoz added an RBI double two batters later.

Cardinals starter Miles Mikolas allowed two runs in six innings pitched to pick up the win. Quintana surrendered six runs in three innings on the mound.

Javier Baez drove in Chicago's two runs with a home run in the fourth inning.
 

ARCA LEADS ANGELS

Los Angeles Angels catcher Francisco Arcia finished with three hits and six RBIs in his team's 11-5 win over the Seattle Mariners. He now has 10 RBIs in his first two games, an MLB record.

Outfielder Joey Rickard drove in five runs and scored three more in the Baltimore Orioles' 11-2 victory against the Tampa Bay Rays.

 

RED SOX EXPLOIT ROGERS

Minnesota Twins reliever Taylor Rogers allowed two runs and walked three in one inning on the mound against the Boston Red Sox, who won 10-4.

Nicholas Castellanos went 0 for four with three strikeouts in the Detroit Tigers' 2-1 loss to the Cleveland Indians.

 

ODOR WITH AN INSIDE-THE-PARK HOMER

Texas Rangers infielder Rougned Odor jogged out of the box but still ended up with an inside-the-park home run in the fifth inning against the Houston Astros.
