Beachy, Bourn lead Braves to 7-2 win over Cards

ST. LOUIS — Brandon Beachy pitched six innings of one-run ball and helped himself with an RBI single, Michael Bourn added a solo homer and the Atlanta Braves beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-2 Saturday night.

Beachy (4-1) allowed only two singles and lowered his ERA to 1.60, fifth best in the NL. He struck out six and walked four.

Bourn went 3 for 6 with two RBIs and two runs scored, and the homer was his first since Aug. 19, 2011, against Arizona.

Atlanta did most of its damage against Cardinals starter Adam Wainright (2-4). Wainright had won all six career starts he’d made against his former team, but he lasted just 4 1-3 innings, allowing five runs on nine hits, with five walks and five strikeouts.
