The Cardinals add to it in the fourth, Mike Antico takes this deep to right center, off the base of the wall, Nick Raposo scores it’s 4-0.

Then Arquimedes Gamboa singles to left, Irving Lopez scores easily, Antico motors in from second, and it’s 6-0 Baby Birds.

It’s 7-0 when Chandler Redmond lines this off the second baseman’s glove into short right, Matt Koperniak scores it’s 8-0.

Then L.J. Jones puts icing on the cake with this two run shot to left center, his first in Double AA, and the Cardinals lead 10-0.

And Springfield goes onto win 12-5.
