KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Nolan Arenado homered for the third straight game, Tyler O’Neill hit one right after him and the St. Louis Cardinals completed an in-state sweep of the Kansas City Royals 7-2.
In the second inning, Arenado and O’Neill hit back-to-back homers for the second time in three games. Arenado’s was a two-run blast for his 25th and O’Neill powered his 432 feet over the center-field wall for his 20th and a seven-run lead.
The 30-year-old Arenado went 5 for 12 with three home runs, nine RBI, and four runs in the series.
