Scoring in every inning the Cardinals handily beat the Indians 15-2.
Ten Cards scored runs and seven players drove in runs. Nate Wolf and Andrew Olivo paved the way with three RBIs each.
Serina D’Amico provided the highlight of the day, stealing second and racing all the way home when the throw from the catcher sailed into center field and got by the outfielder.
Starting and winning pitcher Francisco Santaniello allowed the first three Indians to reach base. Paul Szulc hit an RBI single, but Santaniello retired the next three batters.
Santaniello ran out of gas in the second with two out in the second. Owen Locke took over and retired the one batter he faced in the second and escaped a bases loaded one out jam with the help of an unassisted double play.
Bayard Eton caught a line drive and doubled the runner on third base. William Marchi hurled the fourth and fifth innings allowing one run. Eton finished the game striking out the side in the sixth inning.
