DENVER — Lance Lynn allowed three hits in eight innings and Matt Adams ignited the offense with two homers and a career-high six RBIs as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the slumping Colorado Rockies 8-0 on Monday night.

Lynn (8-5) struck out seven and walked none before being taken out for the ninth after throwing 108 pitches. It's the first time Colorado has been held scoreless at Coors Field since last July.

Adams' big night included a two-run single in the third, a solo shot in the fifth and a three-run homer in the seventh. This was the third multihomer game of his career.

Jhoulys Chacin (1-6) struggled with his control, allowing five runs in six innings.

Corey Dickerson had two of the hits for Colorado, which has dropped seven straight.
