Braves Walk Past Cardinals to Complete Series Sweep

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Austin Riley homered and Ehire Adrianza drove in the go-ahead run with the first of four straight bases-loaded walks as the Atlanta Braves scored six times in the eighth inning to complete a three-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals with an 8-4 victory. Atlanta’s rally came against a Cardinals bullpen that couldn’t hold a lead for the second straight night. Riley’s two-out, two-run homer off Giovanny Gallegos in the eighth tied the game at 4 and denied Cardinals starter Wade LeBlanc his first major league win in more than a year.
