ATLANTA, May 28 (UPI) -- Rafael Furcal went 3-for-5 with a home run and Matt Adams added three RBI Monday in the St. Louis Cardinals' 8-2 victory over reeling Atlanta.

Adams drove in two more runs with a sixth-inning double to break the game open while Daniel Descalso chipped in with a two-run home run for St. Louis, which had 14 hits in taking the opener of a three-game series in Atlanta.

Lance Lynn (8-1) struck out eight over seven solid innings for the victory, surrendering a pair of runs on five hits and one walk.

Braves starter Tommy Hanson (5-4) was tagged for six runs on eight hits, lasting only 3 1/3 innings.
