Fowler homers as Cardinals sweep Phillies with 6-5 win

Cardinals Starting pitchers dominated against Pittsburgh including Wacha

The Cardinals gave Martinez all the run support he would need with a four-run fourth, which tied their season high for runs in an inning, and then three runs in the seventh.

Molina hit.300, playing in six games, on the recent seven-game trip on which St. Louis did not win a game. In his 40.0 innings and 3-3 record this year, Nola has a 4.28 ERA with 35 Ks.

Nearby the Arch at Busch Stadium on Sunday, the Philadelphia Phillies and the St. Louis Cardinals will be wrapping up their weekend Major League Baseball series. I like Wainwright to bounce back here, and even though the Cards' bullpen and offense are pretty awful, I'll take St. Louis to eke one out. And by the time we made it to the top of the ninth still losing 6-3, I was just about ready to turn off the game and get on with my day.

Tommy Pham, who had two hits, scored twice and drove in a run for St. Louis, said Fowler's homer served as a flawless pick-me-up. But "he gave it a good run and said it still wasn't quite right", Matheny said. "He's a clutch player". The rookie went five innings, allowing three runs, six hits and three walks along with four strikeouts. "It wasn't coming out great". We're just trying to find that good rhythm. The Philly right-hander surrendered just five hits on the night, and four of them were singles.

"I just didn't execute the pitch where I wanted it", Nola said of the Fowler home run. Eric Fryer made it 4-0 with an RBI single. Wong's hit took on added importance when Oh faltered in the ninth. Odubel Herrera, Daniel Nava and Tommy Joseph bunched singles in the first inning for a run and Herrera doubled home a run in the second. Seung Hwan Oh picked up his 15th save, but gave up two runs and had runners on first and second when he got a fly ball out to right to end the game.

"We had a chance to come back and just fell short again", Mackanin said.

Herrera went 3 for 5 with two RBIs, extending his hitting streak to 10 games.

Phillies: INF Cesar Hernandez was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain. He was injured making a throw on Friday night. He strained his left knee walking down the steps last weekend at Citizens Bank Park.

Cardinals: C Yadier Molina was scratched from the lineup for the second straight game with lower back stiffness.

"For whatever reason, certain guys like to hit in certain spots", Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.

Meanwhile, the Boston Red Sox defeated the Detroit Tigers 5-3, the New York Mets were beaten 3-2 by the Atlanta Braves, the Seattle Mariners posted a 4-2 win against the Toronto Blue Jays and the San Diego Padres outlasted the Kansas City Royals 6-3. Wednesday and Thursday night's games are in Philadelphia.

Aledmys Diaz went deep and Michael Wacha pitched a quality start as Cardinals (27-32) topped the Phillies, 3-2 at Busch Stadium. LHP Marco Gonzales will make his season debut for St. Louis in the nightcap.
