Nolan Gorman went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBIs as the St. Louis Cardinals surged past the visiting Boston Red Sox 7-2 on Saturday.

Lars Nootbaar also drove in two runs for the Cardinals, who have won five of their past six games.

St. Louis finished with 14 hits, with 10 batters getting at least one each.

Cardinals starting pitcher Miles Mikolas allowed one run on two hits in five innings. He struck out four and walked one.

JoJo Romero (1-0), the third of four St. Louis relievers, earned the victory.

Rafael Devers homered for the fourth straight game for the Red Sox, who have lost four in a row.

Red Sox starting pitcher Kutter Crawford allowed one run on six hits in 5 2/3 innings. He struck out five and walked two.

Reliever Justin Slaten (2-2) allowed five runs, four earned, in the eighth to take the loss.

Gorman hit his seventh homer of the season, a solo blast, to put the Cardinals up 1-0 in the second inning. Devers’ eighth homer of the year tied the score 1-1 in the fourth inning.

Nolan Arenado and Alec Burleson hit one-out singles in the sixth inning, but the threat ended when Arenado was thrown out trying to advance on a two-out wild pitch.

The Cardinals took a 2-1 lead in the seventh inning. Masyn Winn and Dylan Carlson hit one-out singles, Brendan Donovan walked, and Nootbaar hit a run-scoring groundout.

The Red Sox tied the score 2-2 in the eighth. Duran hit a two-out single and scored on Rob Refsnyder’s double.

St. Louis seized control of the game with a five-run outburst in the bottom of the inning. Singles by Arenado, Burleson, Ivan Herrera, and Gorman produced two runs, then Winn hit a sacrifice fly.

Donovan hit a single and Nootbaar followed with an RBI single to right field for another run.
