Alec Burleson, Masyn Winn power Cardinals to a 5-1 win over Rockies for a 4-game split

ST. LOUIS — Alec Burleson homered, and Masyn Winn drove in two runs and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Colorado Rockies 5-1 on Sunday for a split in the teams’ four-game series.

Rookie catcher Pedro Pagés knocked in a run with a sacrifice fly, singled and scored twice for the Cardinals, who won for just the third time in 10 games.

The Rockies lost for the ninth time in 11 games.

Andre Pallante (2-2, 6.16 ERA) won for the second straight time in making his third consecutive start in Steven Matz’s spot in the rotation since moving up from Triple-A Memphis. He threw 68 pitches in five innings, allowing three hits and no runs.

Colorado’s Ty Blach (2-4) pitched five innings in his sixth start since joining the rotation on May 12 after making three relief appearances. He gave up four runs on eight hits.

St. Louis took a 1-0 lead in the second. Dylan Carlson hit a leadoff double and scored on a sacrifice fly by Pagés.

The Cardinals doubled their lead in the third when Burleson led off with a home run to right field that Greg Jones just missed catching as it cleared the wall.

A two-out single by Winn scored Brendan Donovan and Pagés, giving St. Louis a 4-0 lead in the fourth inning.

A throwing error by Ezequiel Tovar in the sixth while trying to complete a double play allowed Pagés to score for a 5-0 advantage.

The Rockies scored their run in the ninth on a one-out single by Elias Díaz, who finished with two hits.
