Bryce Harper homered, doubled, singled and had four RBIs to lift the host Philadelphia Phillies past the St. Louis Cardinals 11-4 on Wednesday.

Andrew McCutchen hit a home run and scored four runs while Scott Kingery and Maikel Franco each added a homer for the Phillies, who earned their second straight win and fifth in six games.

The game was delayed about 1 hour, 45 minutes at the start because of rain.

Phillies starter Aaron Nola (6-0) was very effective in seven innings, giving up four hits and one run. Nola, who struck out eight and walked three, threw 102 pitches, 68 for strikes.

Matt Wieters had a home run, double and two RBIs, and Marcell Ozuna also had a pair of hits for St. Louis.

Cardinals starter Genesis Cabrera, 22, who made his major league debut, struggled through 3 2/3 innings. Cabrera (0-1) allowed five hits and five runs (three earned). He fanned five and walked two.

The Phillies bolted to a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning on a two-run single from Cesar Hernandez.

The Cardinals had runners at second and third with one out in the second, but Nola rallied to strike out Harrison Bader and Cabrera to end the threat.

In the third, Harper launched a 407-foot homer to center, also scoring McCutchen for a 4-0 advantage.

Wieters hit a solo shot in the fourth to get the Cardinals within 4-1.

Harper continued his torrid offense in the bottom of the fourth with a bases-loaded double to center, scoring two more runs for a 6-1 Phillies lead. It was the 200th double of Harper's career.

Kingery then added a two-run homer in the fifth, and Franco followed with a home run as the Phillies went back-to-back for a 9-1 lead. McCutchen added the third homer of the inning, a two-run blast.

The Cardinals added three runs in the eighth on RBIs from Ozuna, Wieters and Yairo Munoz.
