Yadier Molina clubbed a two-run homer and knocked in four as the Cardinals doubled up the Royals, 6-3, in the opener of a two-game series at rainy Kauffman Stadium. The start of the game was delayed one hour due to rain. Allen Craig went 3-for-5 with an RBI for the Cards, who have won five of their last six. Adam Wainwright scattered three runs and 12 hits over eight innings as he upped his mark to 7-and-3. The teams meet again at 7:10 on WKEI.
