Cardinals keep rolling in Wrigley!

Paul DeJongNolan Gorman and Lars Nootbaar homered, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 6-4 on Tuesday night for their third consecutive win.

DeJong put St. Louis in front when he opened the ninth inning with a drive to left-center off Javier Assad for his third homer this season. Dylan Carlson then tripled and scored on Andrew Knizner‘s bloop double into shallow right field.

Following a solid start from Jack Flaherty, Chris Stratton (1-0) got four outs for the win, and Giovanny Gallegos worked the ninth for his second save. Gallegos was just called up on Tuesday, while JoJo Romero was sent down to AAA Memphis.

The Cardinals had dropped eight in a row and 15 of 18 overall before their win streak. While they still have a lot of ground to make up, the fact the Cardinals are starting to pick up some momentum in May is positive.
