Simply put, it was a struggle for Colorado Rockies starter Tyler Anderson on Sunday.

The St. Louis Cardinals hit Anderson early and often in a 12-3 win over the Rockies at Coors Field.

Anderson lasted only two-thirds of an inning and gave up six runs on seven hits. The loss moved his record to 6-7.

After the six-run first, the Cardinals added four more runs in the third inning off of Chad Bettis. In all the Cardinals had 16 hits and seven extra base hits.

First baseman Matt Carpenter became the first Cardinals player with four doubles in a game since Joe "Ducky" Medwick in 1937.

The Rockies get back to action on Monday, August 26 when they play at the Angels. Coverage starts at 7:30 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
