St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - Jhonny Peralta hit a two-run homer and the St. Louis Cardinals completed a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies with Sunday's 4-1 victory.

Yadier Molina scored on a wild pitch in the eighth inning, and Trevor Rosenthal struck out the side in the ninth to post his 44th save.
