Carlson homers, drives in 4 runs as Cardinals beat Cubs 8-3

St. Louis Cardinals

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Dylan Carlson homered and drove in four runs, Jake Woodford pitched 5 2/3 strong innings in his first start of the season, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 8-3.

Woodford, who was recalled from Triple-A Memphis prior to the game, struck out six and didn’t allow a walk.

Carlson’s four RBIs tied a career-high set earlier this season on April 7 against Miami.

Only one of the five runs allowed by Cubs starter Alec Mills was earned.
