Cardinals Vs. Royals Score Update: St. Louis Jumps Out To 6-2 Lead

After a disappointing performance at the plate in the series-opener against the Kansas City Royals, the St. Louis Cardinals have found their groove. St. Louis has scored six runs in the first three innings and has jumped out to a 6-2 lead.

The Cardinals jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning thanks to home runs from Matt Holliday and Yadier Molina. Holliday pegged the Cardinals to a 2-0 lead with his 11th home run of the season, while Molina extended the lead to 4-0 with his ninth home run of the season. Carlos Beltran has hits in his first two at-bats and has driven in another run.

Joe Kelly has managed to escape some dicey situations in just the second start of his career. Mike Moustakas hit his 10th home run of the season off of Kelly, but the young pitcher has managed to get through four innings with only two runs allowed.
