Rookie backup batting .643 for Cards

ST. LOUIS (AP) - If St. Louis Cardinals rookie Matt Adams had enough at_bats to qualify for the league leaders, he'd be ahead by nearly 200 points.

Since earning one of the final roster spots in spring training, the 24-year-old backup first baseman has maximized just 14 trips to the plate with two homers, seven RBIs and a ridiculous .643 batting average.

Adams' first career pinch-hit homer was the go-ahead hit in a victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday. He added another two-run homer and RBI double on Wednesday.

After Adams made the team, manager Mike Matheny said he'd try to give the former 23rd-round draft pick a couple starts a week. Regular first baseman Allen Craig got a day off Wednesday and also can play the corner outfield spots.
