Fowler, Wong lead Cardinals past White Sox 14-2
(CHICAGO) – Dexter Fowler broke out of his funk in grand style. The slumping outfielder hit his fourth career grand slam, All-Star Miles Mikolas tossed six innings of three-hit ball and the St. Louis Cardinals routed the Chicago White Sox 14-2 on Tuesday night. Kolten Wong had four hits, including a two-run homer and a double, as every St. Louis starter except catcher Yadier Molina got at least one hit. Jose Martinez had three hits and two RBI. Fowler lofted his sixth homer this season, but first since May 6, to cap the Cardinals' seven-run sixth. He finished with two hits and played right field in only his second start since June 27. Wong is batting only .221 this season, but has 10 hits in his last 18 at-bats. He said the surge is a result of working on swing mechanics with hitting coach John Mabry. Mikolas (10-3), selected to his first All-Star team Sunday, faced only three hitters in five of his six innings. The right-hander allowed two runs and struck out six. Charlie Tilson drove in two runs for the White Sox in the third, one of only two innings in which Chicago had base runners against Mikolas. White Sox starter Dylan Covey (3-5) lasted five innings, allowing five runs (four earned) on nine hits and two walks. The right-hander lost his fourth straight decision and has an 11.70 ERA in his last five starts. Mikolas came out dealing, fanning five of the first six White Sox hitters. Covey started strong, too, retiring eight of the first nine Cardinals batters and striking out four. Then with two outs in the third, four consecutive line-drive singles gave St. Louis a 2-0 lead.
