ST. LOUIS — Matt Adams hit a two-run home run in the ninth inning to give the Cardinals a victory in the opener of a four-game series with the NL Central rival they topped in the Division Series last fall. Matt Carpenter walked to lead off the ninth and Matt Holliday flied out. Adams then hit his 10th homer on Justin Wilson's 0-and-1 pitch for his first career game-winning homer.
