Cardinals use long ball to beat Reds

(TSX / STATS) -- CINCINNATI -- Matt Carpenter, Dexter Fowler and Paul DeJong homered, and rookie right-hander Luke Weaver allowed two runs through five innings, lifting the St Louis Cardinals to a 9-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night at Great American Ball Park.

Tommy Pham went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two RBIs for the Cardinals (79-72), who trail the first-place Chicago Cubs by five games in the National League Central standings. St. Louis is 2 1/2 games behind the Colorado Rockies for the second NL wild-card spot.

Weaver (7-1) struck out seven and did not walk a batter to extend his major-league-leading win streak to seven games. It is also the longest streak by a Cardinals pitcher this season. He had been tied with Adam Wainwright. Weaver has struck out seven or more batters in each of his past seven starts.
