Cardinals Bash Rockies, Astros Pummel White Sox

Jonathan Grant | August 19th, 2022

If you like to see a lot of runs being scored in a Major League Baseball game, then you had your chance to see just that on Thursday as the St. Louis Cardinals and the Houston Astros dealt out resounding defeats. The Cards won their fourth straight contest by smacking the Colorado Rockies 13-0 at home. Two 40-year olds helped them do the job, with Adam Wainwright pitching seven strong scoreless innings on the mound and Albert Pujols hitting a grand slam as part of a five-RBI outing.

His homer was his 690th career shot, and it was more than enough to send the Rockies to their fifth consecutive loss. Elsewhere, the Houston Astros being the Chicago White Sox with a football-esque score, hammering them 21-5 in the Windy City. Alex Bregman had a career-high six RBI’s by launching two homers and two doubles and the Astros rode a six-run fourth frame to run away and hide from their hosts. Houston are now 3.5 games up on the New York Yankees for first in the AL while the White Sox are 2.5 back in the AL Central and three games back in the AL Wild Card race.
