ST. LOUIS (AP) — Adam Wainwright allowed two runs in seven innings, Tyler O’Neill homered twice and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Cleveland Indians 8-2 to stop a six-game losing streak.

O’Neill hit a 451-foot, two-run homer in the third off Phil Maton and a solo homer in the seventh against Trevor Stephan, helping the Cardinals avoid what would have been their first seven-game skid since June 2017.

O’Neill leads St. Louis with 15 homers and 32 RBIs. Matt Carpenter drove in three runs with a bases-loaded double and Paul Goldschmidt had a solo homer.
