Cardinals Vs. Diamondbacks Final Score: Carlos Beltran Powers St. Louis' 3rd Straight Win

Carlos Beltran finished 2-for-4 with two home runs and six RBI to power the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. St. Louis' third straight victory pushes the team to 19-11 on the season. Arizona falls to 14-17 with the loss.

Beltran went deep with a two-run shot in the first inning. In the second inning, Beltran crushed a grand slam off Arizona starter Ian Kennedy to make it 6-0 St. Louis. That was more than enough support for Cardinals starter Jake Westbrook.

Westbrook struck out eight in seven innings while allowing just four hits and no earned runs. The victory improves Westbrook to 4-2 overall on the season.
