Carlson homers, drives in 4 runs as Cardinals beat Cubs 8-3
Only one of the five runs allowed by Cubs starter Alec Mills was earned.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Dylan Carlson homered and drove in four runs, Jake Woodford pitched 5 2/3 strong innings in his first start of the season, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 8-3. Woodford, who was recalled from Triple-A Memphis prior to the game, struck out six and didn’t allow a walk. Carlson’s four RBIs tied a career high set earlier this season on April 7 against Miami. Only one of the five runs allowed by Cubs starter Alec Mills was earned.
