The St. Louis Cardinals got a big performance out of their starting pitcher Jake Westbrook. Manager Mike Matheny also got a big performance out of his offense in the seventh inning as the Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 12-0 on Saturday night at Busch Stadium.
The Cardinals offense exploded for 12 runs in the seventh inning off of three Cubs relievers without hitting a single home run. Rather than employing the long ball, the Cardinals used a bevy of doubles to pepper the Cubs with a huge inning.
The Cardinals used ten hits and three walks to push across their 12 runs. Eight of the hits were for extra bases, including seven doubles in the inning.
Allen Craig, who entered the game as a pinch hitter in the inning, double twice in two at bats in the seventh while Skip Schumaker had a double and a triple in the hitting brigade.
BEST OF MAXIM
