PHILADELPHIA (AP) Nolan Arenado sparked a record barrage of four straight home runs by St. Louis in the first inning, then hit a tiebreaking drive in the ninth that sent the Cardinals over the Philadelphia Phillies 7-6 Saturday.

With two outs in the first, Arenado, Nolan Gorman, Juan Yepez and Dylan Carson homered off Kyle Gibson. It was the first time in major league history a team connected for four homers in a row in the first inning.

"It was really cool just being a part of that," Arenado said. "It was almost surreal. You didn't really believe it. Those moments are special. I'm very thankful for them."
