Cardinals 5, Cubs 1

Some offense supporting strong starting pitching usually makes for a winner, and David Freese made sure of that this afternoon.

Freese went 2 for 4 with a home run, a double, and 3 RBIs. Carlos Beltran was 1 for 3 with an RBI double. Matt Holliday, though, returned to his slump, going 0 for 4. Freese’s homer and Beltran’s double both came in the 6th, which ended starter Chris Volstad’s game.

Lance Lynn pitched 8 innings, giving up 6 hits and 1 earned run, with 7 Ks.

Back home to face the Brewers and the Bucs.
