Jimmy Rollins' grand slam opened the flood gates for the Phillies, who unloaded for 11 runs in the sixth and seventh innings, returning to their winning ways with a 14-6 win over the Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park.
Rollins' slam tied a team club record for grand slams in a season (via Lauber) and led to a career-high five-RBI afternoon for the Phillies' shortstop (via Lauber), who has been rolling along since his epic 0-for-28. Shane Victorino also homered and reached base all five times, knocking in four runs of his own. Rodrigo Lopez battled through six innings, but did enough to earn his third win of the season.
Before the game, Clay Condrey was placed on the disabled list with a left oblique strain and Andrew Carpenter was optioned to triple-A Lehigh Valley. To fill their spots on the roster, Steven Register and Kyle Kendrick were recalled from Lehigh Valley. Register, 26, who was claimed off waivers by the Phillies on May 20, last appeared in the Majors in 2008 with Colorado. He had a 2.88 ERA with Lehigh Valley before being recalled. He surrended a run in two innings of mop-up work this afternoon.
