ST. LOUIS (AP) - 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 7 at-bats off Homer Bailey as the Cardinals took 2 of 3 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 3 of 28 series with two splits.

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