PITTSBURGH -- A two-run inning in the fifth is all the St. Louis Cardinals needed in a 2-1 victory over Pittsburgh Sunday at PNC Park.

Matt Carpenter came up with a solo shot in the fifth and Jed Gyorko's two-out single scored what would be the game-winner.

Jack Flaherty and Pittsburgh's Trevor Williams squared off. The pair went through four scoreless innings before Carpenter's shot in the fifth.

The Cardinals had 10 hits in the game including two singles by Jadier Molina and Jose Martinez. Marcell Ozuna, Kolten Wong, Flaherty and Greg Garcia had a single each.

Padres 10, Cubs 6

This was not a pitcher's game as the two teams combined for 27 hits with San Diego leading with 15.

Javier Baez came through big again with his career-high 24th home run and his 86th RBI of the season with a double. But the Padres took a 4-0 lead until the Cubs scored a run in the third on Baez' homer. The lead went to 5-3 before the Cubs came back to even the score at 5-5 in the seventh. Albert Almora Jr. and Anthony Rizzo had RBI singles that knotted the score.

But the Padres regained the lead in the eighth and then pounded home four runs in the ninth to put the game away.

Ben Zobrist had a solo shot in the ninth. Almora Jr. and Willson Contreras had two singles each.
