The Cardinals won his seventh straight, two games ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Central. The Yankees are on a five-game losing streak.

DeJong said he had a 4 hour, 25 minute marathon with 2 walks, a double, 3 run home runs and 3 runs that put him 2-for-3. Arenado went 3-for-5 with a double, a three-run homer, and two runs.

Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright allowed six runs in four innings, allowing him eight hits and four walks. Relief Chris Stratton (6-4) scored the win, with Ryan Helsley scoring the final four outs for his 11th save.

In his debut game for the Yankees, starting pitcher Frankie Montas allowed his six runs on five hits and three walks in his third inning. Relief Albert Abreu (2-1) lost.

Aaron Judge said he was 2-for-5 with the Yankees' walks and his four RBIs. Aaron Hicks went 3-for-4, where he had one walk, one RBI and two runs, coming out of a 0-32 slump.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone was ejected for his sixth time this season in protest of home run umpire Ed Hickox's ball-and-strike his call. Yankees pitching coach Matt Blake also ejected.

Matt Carpenter's sacrifice fly put the Yankees ahead 1-0 in the first inning. In the bottom of the frame, Arenado hit a game-tying RBI single.

The Yankees scored on Hicks' RBI single and Judge's two-run single in his second inning, which put him ahead 4–1.

With the help of his three walks, the Cardinals hit back with five runs in the half of the inning. An RBI double by Dylan Carlson, a sacrifice fly by Paul Goldschmidt, and a homer by Arenado put the Cardinals up 6–4.

The Yankees tied Judges 2-run with his double in the fifth inning as he tied 6-6. The Yankees cut the deficit to 9–8 in the sixth inning with Jose Trevino's run-scoring single and Marwin Gonzalez's RBI fielder's choice ground ball.

In the eighth inning he hit a home run by DeJong to put him 12-8, in the ninth he hit a home run by LeMahieu and the final score was 12-9 for him.
