Louis pulled away to a 13-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The Cardinals have emerged from a deep hitting slump by scoring 13 runs in each of their last two games. Its the first time this season theyve had double-digit run totals in consecutive games. Shelby Miller (11-7) limited Cincinnatis slumping offence to two singles over the first five innings before Joey Votto hit a three-run homer in the sixth. Bronson Arroyo (9-9) matched his season high by giving up seven runs in only 3 2-3 innings, his shortest outing of the season. Freese also had a bases-loaded walk, giving him four RBIs. Allen Craig and Carlos Beltran each had three hits as St. Louis piled up 14 in all. The 13 runs were the most allowed by Cincinnati this season. The Cardinals improved to 7-3 against the Reds this season, keeping the defending NL Central champions at arms length. They moved to a half-game behind first-place Pittsburgh. Cincinnati stayed 5 1/2 games back. Both teams were coming off tough weeks set up by a lack of offence. The Cardinals lost four of five in Pittsburgh and seven straight overall, allowing the Pirates to take over the top spot. St. Louis managed a total of only 10 runs during the seven-game losing streak, which ended with a 13-0 victory in Pittsburgh on Thursday. The Reds had trouble scoring runs on the West Coast while dropping five of their last six games there. Which one would break out first in the weekend series? The Cardinals. Emphatically. They quickly got to Arroyo, who had trouble getting his pitches to go where he wanted. The Cardinals loaded the bases on a pair of hits and a walk with one out in the first, and Freese doubled off the wall in centre for a 3-0 lead. Jon Jay followed with an RBI single on Arroyos 24th pitch. It never got much better for Arroyo, who has faced the Cardinals more than any other opponent in his career and had far more bad times than good. He fell to 8-16 in 37 career starts against St. Louis. Curtis Partch relieved Arroyo in the fourth and walked the first three batters he faced, including Matt Holliday and Freese with the bases loaded. Jays double made it 9-0. Descalso hit a pair of solo shots for the first multihomer game of his career, and Craig had a two-run shot as St. Louis pulled away. The Cardinals hit only nine homers in July, including one after the All-Star break. NOTES: Cardinals leadoff hitter Matt Carpenter went 0 for 6, extending his slump to 0 for 18. ...
