Atlanta first baseman Jose Rosario was instrumental in his team's 5-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. Rosario, who is on pace to hit 26 home runs this season, went 1-1 with 1 run scored to lead the offensive attack for the Braves. Atlanta reliever Wesley Wright picked up the win, upping his record to 4-3. William Martin was saddled with the loss. Anthony Zych notched his 5th save in 5 chances.

Rosario had a game-changing home run in the bottom of the seventh. On a 2-0 fastball from William Martin, he banged a 3-run home run to left-center, giving the Braves a 5-2 lead. It was the 4th home run of the year for Rosario.

"If we play like this, we can win a lot of games," Rosario told the Atlanta Daily News.

Atlanta improves to 93-59 with the win. They lead their division by 4 games.
