Carlos Beltran continued to pace the Cardinals power attack. His three run homer gave the Cards a 7-1 lead. Beltran is leading St. Louis with 15 home runs this season. Matt Adams hit his first major league home run to stretch the Cardinals lead to 8-1. The team gave him the silent treatment when he reached the dugout, but then mugged and hugged him for his accomplishment.
Halladay left the game after just two innings pitched with soreness in his right shoulder. Molina left the game while batting in the fifth inning. Molina was battling dehydration.
The Cardinals begin a ten game road trip in Atlanta on Memorial Day.
