Royals Top Cardinals In Rain-Delayed Affair

Eric Hosmer doubled in two runs to put the Royals ahead in the top of the ninth as they held on to come back and drop the Cardinals 4-2 despite a more than four and a half hour rain delay. The game came to a halt with no outs in the top of the ninth with the bases loaded. Mitchell Boggs took the loss in relief. Cards starter Michael Wacha struck out six and allowed one run and two hits over seven innings in his major league debut. Allen Craig and David Freese knocked in the runs during the first frame for St. Louis, which had won four in-a-row.
