Cards Outslug D'backs

Matt Adams clubbed a three-run homer during an eight-run fourth inning as the Cardinals hammered the Diamondbacks 12-8. Daniel Descalso went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer during the big inning, while pitcher Shelby Miller and Matt Carpenter hit back-to-back solo shots in the fifth for the Cards. St. Louis earned a split in the four-game set at Busch Stadium and play in Cincinnati this weekend.
