MLB roundup: Cardinals beat down Reds; Nationals beat Sox again

St. Louis' Matt Adams is congratulated by teammates after he hit his second two-run home run in as many days Wednesday, helping the Cardinals to a 10-0 victory over the Reds in St. Louis.
St. Louis' Matt Adams is congratulated by teammates after he hit his second two-run home run in as many days Wednesday, helping the Cardinals to a 10-0 victory over the Reds in St. Louis.

Jake Westbrook pitched a five-hit shutout, and the St. Louis Cardinals backed him with four home runs Wednesday in routing the Cincinnati Reds 10-0 at Busch Stadium.

Jon Jay, Carlos Beltran and Matt Adams homered in a span of seven at-bats off Homer Bailey (1-1), as the Cardinals took two of three.

Matt Carpenter added a two-run homer on a four-hit day. Adams homered for the second straight game, and added an RBI double.

Westbrook (1-1) threw his fourth career shutout – his first since Aug. 9, 2006. He walked four and struck out three.

Bailey (1-1) had gone 23 straight shutout innings – including his no-hitter against Pittsburgh last season – before the Cardinals scored four runs with two outs in the fifth.

Nationals 5, White Sox 2: Bryce Harper homered, and Ian Desmond had three extra-base hits, as the Nationals stayed unbeaten at home.

Washington starter Jordan Zimmermann (2-0) limited Chicago to two runs and seven hits in seven innings. Both runs scored on groundouts.

Harper hit his fourth homer into the second deck leading off the fourth against Gavin Floyd (0-2), who allowed five runs and nine hits in 5 1/3 innings.
