Adams, Robinson Have Big Games in Cards Win

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jake Westbrook pitched seven solid innings and contributed offensively with his second career steal, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to an 11-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night.

Matt Adams had two hits and three RBIs and Shane Robinson's three-run triple in the fifth was his third hit of the game for the Cardinals, who are 4-1 since the All-Star break and lead the majors with a 61-37 record.

Allen Craig had two hits and a walk to give him 16 hits during a nine-game hitting streak. He's second in the league in hitting at .337 behind teammate Yadier Molina, who had three hits and an RBI and is batting .339.

Westbrook had his first career three-hit game and helped knock out John Lannan when he drew a two-out walk in the fourth, stole second and scored on Carpenter's single for a 4-0 lead.
