St. Louis • Jake Westbrook pitched a five-hit shutout and the St. Louis Cardinals backed him with four home runs Wednesday in routing the Cincinnati Reds 10-0.

Jon Jay, Carlos Beltran and Matt Adams homered in a span of seven at-bats off Homer Bailey as the Cardinals took two of three from the NL Central champions.

Matt Carpenter added a two-run homer on a four-hit day. Adams homered for the second straight game and added an RBI double and walk.

The Cardinals have dominated the Reds at home the last decade, losing just three of 28 series with two splits.

Westbrook (1-1) threw his fourth career shutout, walking four and striking out three.
