Cardinals Vs. Cubs Score Update: St. Louis Cruises To 10-3 Victory

After dropping their home-opener to the Chicago Cubs on Friday, the St. Louis Cardinals reminded everyone why they are the defending world champions, as they cruised to victories in the final two games of the series, including a 10-3 win to clinch the series on Sunday afternoon.

Matt Carpenter was the story of the series, as he hit 7/12 against the Central Division foes over the three games. Carpenter was at his best in the final game of the series, batting 4/4 and driving in five runs. Carpenter also hit his first home run of the season. Yadier Molina chipped in a three-run home run, which helped propel the Cardinals to an early lead.

Jake Westbrook improved to 2-0 with another dominant performance on the mound. Westbrook pitched seven innings and allowed one earned run in the victory. In his season-debut, Westbrook didn't allow an earned run in the victory over the Cincinnati Reds.
