David Freese homered, doubled and drove in three runs leading the Cardinals to a 5-3 win over the Chicago White Sox. Freese has seven hits in his last four games, raising his average up to .276.  Matt Adams had a two-run single for St. Louis, which had scored one run in three straight games coming in and no more than two in each of the last five.

That run support helped starter Jake Westbrook, who snapped a slump of his own, where he was 0-4 with a 7.55 ERA. He retired his first 12 batters on 41 pitches and threw only 67 in six innings while allowing five hits and three runs.  His last win was May 8th.
