castle. LOUIS (AP) — Cedric Mullins and Tyler Nevin each hit home runs and Kyle Bradish struck out 11 in 7 innings, beating the Baltimore Orioles 5-3 against the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night.
Mullins also added three singles and stolen bases in the 4-5 night. Anthony Santander added three hits, including a RBI double for Baltimore.
It was the first time the Orioles played at the new Bush Stadium, which opened in 2006.
But the Cardinals have had a historic moment when Harrison Bader hit an Inside the Park home run in the sixth inning. Louis is now at Bush Stadium, and it is the Cardinals’ first home run since 1985. He hit the wall in the center of the ball and made a carom towards Mullins’ left field. Vader walked around the base behind Yadier Molina, who hit a double, and scored while standing without throwing the ball.
Fernando Vina was the last Cardinal to hit Inside the Park HR in Milwaukee on October 2, 2001. There are currently two other Inside-Parkers at Bush Stadium. The last Cardinal to do it at home was Vince Coleman at Busch Stadium II on May 21, 1985.
Bradish (1 win, 1 loss) pitched 7 innings for the longest pitching this season. He gave up four hits, including a home run for Vader. Double plays in the first two innings helped him handle two singles.
Dillon Tate later became the first HR of his career, St. Louis rookie Brendan Donovan gave up a ninth leadoff home run. The Cardinals then went on to hit Tate, and Baltimore brought in Felix Batista. It was the last out of his first save.
Mullins hit a one-out, two-run homer from the right-field bullpen to score Chris Owings. His fifth home run and the first two of 14 RBIs came from home.
Nevin hit a one-out home run into the bullpen in left field in the fourth inning, giving Baltimore a 3-0 lead. Lead St.Louis to attract rookie pitcher Packy Norton (0-1).
It was Norton’s first and second appearance for the Cardinals. He had five hits, three earned runs and two strikeouts. After being designated for designation by the Angels, Naughton became St. waived by Louis.
Orioles added a run to Santander’s double for a 4-0 lead.
Trey Manchini made 5-0 with six RBIs against Nick Wittgren. Wittgren’s heads-up play dropped the Owings’ pop bunt, doubling the two front-runners, reducing the damage to two on-outs and two knock-outs.
