Wheeler, Hoskins, Realmuto lift Phillies over Cardinals 4-0

 Zack Wheeler threw seven shutout innings of four-hit ball and Rhys Hoskins and J.T. Realmuto slugged home runs as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-0 Sunday night.

 

Wheeler didn't allow more than one Cardinals baserunner to reach in an inning, scattered four singles through seven innings while striking out five and walking one in improving to 7-4 with a 2.66 ERA. 

 

In the sixth, Hoskins doubled off the center-field wall to start the inning and scored on a Nick Castellanos single up the middle. Two hitters later, Realmuto plated Castellanos with his sixth homer of the season.

 

Both Hoskins and Realmuto went 2 for 4 - the only hitters for either team with multiple hits. 

 

Wainwright (6-6) allowed four runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings, striking out five and walking one.
