Wong collected four hits and scored three runs,
and Goldschmidt added an RBI single for the Cardinals, who
totaled 18 hits en route to their sixth victory in seven
Cincinnati rookie Aristides Aquino launched a two-run shot in
the sixth inning to set a major league record with his 10th
homer in his first 15 career games. The 25-year-old's blast off
Adam Wainwright (9-8) broke the mark set by Philadelphia's Rhys
Hoskins, who had 10 homers in the first 17 contests in 2017.
The Reds saw third baseman Eugenio Suarez exit in the sixth
inning with a left thumb sprain. X-rays were negative for
Suarez, who leads the team in homers (33) and RBIs (76).
Wainwright allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits in 6
2/3 innings to improve to 4-1 in his last seven starts.
St. Louis matched its one-run, two-hit total in Thursday's 2-1
loss to the Reds in the first inning alone, as Tommy Edman
singled and scored on Marcell Ozuna's two-out double to left
The Cardinals also did damage with two outs in the second
inning, as Wong and Wainwright each singled before Fowler
deposited a 3-0 fastball from Luis Castillo (11-5) over the wall
in right-center field. The homer was Fowler's 14th of the season
and second in five games.
St. Louis wasn't done flexing its muscles, as DeJong sent an 0-1
slider from Castillo over the wall in center field to take a 6-0
lead in the third inning before Goldschmidt muscled a fastball
to right-center for a two-run shot in the fifth.
That effectively spelled the end of a disastrous night for
Castillo, who permitted a career-high eight runs. He also
matched a career high in both hits (nine) and homers (three) in
4 1/3 innings.
Goldschmidt capped a four-run sixth inning with an RBI single
before Cincinnati dented the scoreboard, with Aquino's homer to
left field highlighting a three-run frame.
