Freddie Freeman crushed a two-run homer and Charlie Culberson drove in two runs to back Mike Foltynewicz, who pitched one-hit ball while striking out nine over five shutout innings. Tommy Pham hit a three-run homer in a five-run seventh before the Cardinals dropped their fourth in a row to stay 5  1/2 games off the NL Central lead.
