Cards Dump Angels

The Cardinals put together a seven-run second inning on their way to mauling the Angels, 12-2, in Anaheim. Matt Carpenter was 3-for-6 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored, while John Jay connected for a long ball and three runs knocked in. Shelby Miller pitched six innings of two-run ball with six strikeouts to improve to 9-and-6. St. Louis is 50-and-33.

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright was named the National League Pitcher of the Month for June. Wainwright allowed just nine earned runs over six starts while posting a 1.77 earned run average and a 4-and-2 record for the month. The Cards' ace opened the month with a complete game against the San Francisco Giants before capping June with a similar effort against the Oakland A's in a 7-1 victory at Oakland on June 29th.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
