Astros Rout Cardinals
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Bud Norris won his fourth game this season and third against the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Houston Astros got career-highs of six RBIs and four hits from rookie Angel Sanchez, stretching their winning streak to seven with an 18-4 rout on Tuesday night.

Colby Rasmus and Matt Holliday homered for the Cardinals, who will try to avoid getting swept by Houston for the second time at home this season behind 11-game winner Chris Carpenter on Wednesday night. The Astros have won five straight in St. Louis, and have outscored the opposition 57-12 during their longest winning streak since an eight-gamer from Aug. 27-Sept. 3, 2008.

Houston had a five-run second against rookie Jaime Garcia (9-5) and scored four in the sixth, seventh and eighth against the St. Louis bullpen.
