Beltran Homers Twice as Cards Beat Marlins 13-7MIAMI (AP) - Carlos Beltran homered from each side of the plate and tripled to lead a 17-hit attack Saturday, and Lance Lynn notched his ninth victory when the St. Louis Cardinals outslugged the Miami Marlins 13-7.
Swinging left-handed, Beltran hit his 15th home run in the second inning and tripled for the first time since May 2012 in the eighth. He hit another home run from the right side in the ninth - the 11th time he has homered from both sides in a game. Yadier Molina singled home two runs in the Cardinals' five-run first inning, and David Freese's fourth homer in the third inning put them ahead to stay.
Lynn (9-1) allowed a career-high seven runs in five innings against the lowest-scoring team in the majors, but his two-run single hit in the fifth inning gave the Cardinals a three-run lead to help them pull away.
