ST. LOUIS (AP)– The Cardinals blast 3 homers, and Mike Leake shuts down the Diamondbacks for a 6-2 win.
Jedd Gyorko, Matt Adams and Yadier Molina homered and Mike Leake pitched seven scoreless innings and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-2 Saturday.
Leake (3-3) retired eight straight between the second and fourth innings and battled back from a 3-0 count to strike out Chris Owings in the fifth to help thwart the Diamondbacks’ best scoring opportunity against him.
It was Leake’s third straight win and first at home since signing with the Cardinals as a free agent this offseason. During that span, Leake has a 0.85 ERA.
