 ST. LOUIS (AP) -The St. Louis Cardinals tied a major league record with 10 straight hits, two each by pitcher Braden Looper and Aaron Miles, in a 10-run fifth inning that chased David Wells of the San Diego Padres on Monday night.
Looper singled to start the inning and had an infield hit later in the frame, highlighted by Scott Rolen's three-run homer. Looper hit eighth, a maneuver manager Tony La Russa has used in three straight games in an effort to spark the struggling defending World Series champions, who had lost five in a row before Monday.
The Cardinals, who entered the inning trailing 3-0, hit six straight singles before Rolen's seventh homer made it 7-3 and chased Wells. Ryan Ludwick homered on Mike Thompson's first pitch.
Yadier Molina walked before Looper and Miles each singled for the second time. David Eckstein's sacrifice fly, which made it 10-3, was the first out.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the walk does not constitute an interruption to the hit streak. The Cardinals are among several teams with 10 consecutive hits, also doing it in 1920 and 1922.
So Taguchi grounded into a double play after Eckstein's fly ball.
The big inning tied a season best for the Cardinals, who totaled 11 runs in their previous five games - all losses. The Padres allowed the most runs in an inning since giving up 11 in the first inning of a 15-5 loss at St. Louis on May 8, 2005.
