Bourjos’ legs help Cardinals beat Phillies 5-2
ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Peter Bourjos hit a game-tying RBI triple, then scored the go-ahead run by beating the throw home on an infield tapper to fuel a four-run fifth inning in the St. Louis Cardinals’ 5-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night.
Carlos Martinez (3-0) allowed two runs in six innings and Matt Adams doubled twice with an RBI.
Ryan Howard hit his 20th career homer against St. Louis, 11 coming in his hometown, and Odubel Herrera had two hits and an RBI. Aaron Harang (2-2) surrendered five runs in six innings, ending a career-best run of eight consecutive quality starts dating to last September.
Bourjos entered 7 for 15 against Harang with a homer and four RBIs, no doubt factoring into his second start considering he was just 1 for 10 on the season.
