Catcher Yadier Molina had a home run and three singles as the Cardinals remained tied for first place in the NL Central with Pittsburgh, following a 12-2 win over the Seattle Mariners. Molina’s second-inning homer off Erasmo Ramirez (5-2) snapped an 0-for-15 skid. Molina scored three times and raised his batting average to .317.
Matt Adams also homered as the Cardinals finished up a 7-2 homestand and maintain their position with Pittsburgh. Both teams are 87-62 with 13 games remaining.
Cardinals starter Shelby Miller (14-9) gave up one earned run and three hits in five innings. He became the first St. Louis rookie to reach 14 wins in a season since Dick Hughes won 16 in 1967.
