Matt Adams and Shane Robinson each drove in three runs and the Cardinals once again went on a homerless scoring binge as they routed the Phillies 11-3 on Wednesday night. It was the Cardinals' third straight win and fourth in five games since the All-Star break. Jake Westbrook pitched seven innings and got the win improving to 7-4. He allowed one run through six and didn't walk anyone. Adams drove in two runs in the second on a single through the right side and added another with a double in the gap in left center in the Cards' five-run fifth. He came around to score when Robinson who started because manager Mike Matheny didn't want to stall Jon Jay's hitting recovery by pitting him against a lefty cleared the bases with a triple. Phillies center fielder John Mayberry Jr. tried to make a diving catch of Robinson's sinking fly ball but missed badly and the ball got past him allowing the fleet Robinson to make it to third. It was the Cardinals' 25th win this season without a strikeout which is their most at this point in the season since 1991. Brock Peterson got his first big-league hit in the eighth a smash that second baseman Chase Utley couldn't handle. The Cardinals had another sellout crowd 44317 which put them over 2 million fans for the 18th straight season. CARDS KEEP POUNDING TAKE 9-3 LEAD Presented with a chance to get some run Phillies manager Charlie Manuel pinch hit for starting pitcher John Lannan in the fifth and the move didn't work twice. John McDonald grounded into a double play to end the inning and reliever J.C. Ramirez got shelled. Three of the first Cardinals to face Ramirez doubled on shots into the gap in left center and then a bases-loaded triple by Shane Robinson gave the Cards a 9-1 lead after five innings. Allen Craig led off with a double and after Yadier Molina fouled out David Freese drove in Craig with his own double. Matt Adams followed with another double to score Freese giving him three RBIs on the night. Pete Kozma walked Jake Westbrook sacrificed the runners to second and third and Matt Carpenter walked to load the bases for Robinson. Center fielder John Mayberry Jr.'s diving attempt on Robinson's sinking fly ball didn't even come close and the ball went past him with Robinson getting to third before left fielder Laynce Nix got the ball back. Carlos Beltran who's 0 for 4 and the only Cardinal not to reach base then fouled out to end the inning. In a classic moment on the big screen after the inning a guy proposed to his girlfriend during the Kiss Cam segment. However much of the moment was lost because one of the recycling guys got between them and the camera and then when he heard people yelling saw himself on the big screen and started mugging for the camera oblivious to what was going on behind him. Indications are the girl said yes. Westbrook had thrown only 71 pitches through six innings so he went back out fo the seventh and the Phillies scored twice. That was it for Westbrook who was pinch hit for in the bottom of the inning by Daniel Descalso. Westbrook allowed nine hits but didn't walk anyone in his seven innings.
