Cardinals' Jake Westbrook, Bullpen Blank Rockies In 3-0 Victory

St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) – Jake Westbrook struck out nine and held the Rockies to four hits over 7 2/3 innings while helping his own cause with an RBI single in a 3-0 Cardinals win at Busch Stadium.

Westbrook (4-4) walked one and picked up his third victory in four starts for the Cardinals, who have won five of six and seven of nine overall.

Allen Craig recorded two hits and an RBI as St. Louis defeated Colorado in consecutive games for the first time since May 5-6, 2008 to open this four- game set.

Jorge De La Rosa (8-7) was touched for five hits and three runs in seven innings in a third straight losing turn for the Rockies, who have dropped six in a row and 11 of their last 12 games.
