Padres Bounce Cardinals

Jedd Gyorko hit a grand slam and drove in five as the Padres rolled the Cardinals 9-5 at Busch Stadium. Seth Smith collected three hits and an RBI in the win and Jake Goebbert drove in three. Alex Torres earned the win in relief of Jesse Hahn, who surrendered five runs in five-and-two-thirds innings. San Diego snapped a short two-game skid. Matt Carpenter drove in two runs in the loss while Matt Adams and Jhonny Peralta each collected two hits and a RBI. Shelby Miller gave up four runs in six frames and walked six for the no-decision. Kevin Siegrist took the loss in relief as the Cards saw a three-game streak end. The game was delayed in the seventh inning for nearly two hours due to the weather.
