June 4, 2013 at 12:25 AM

ST. LOUIS, June 4 (UPI) -- Lance Lynn dominated Arizona over seven innings and Carlos Beltran homered en route to three RBI for St. Louis in its 7-1 defeat of the Diamondbacks Monday.

Lynn (8-1) surrendered just one run on five hits, walking one and striking out six while tossing 74-of-105 pitches for strikes.

Beltran (3-for-5) delivered an RBI single in the fourth inning for a 4-0 St. Louis lead and later capped the scoring with a two-run shot in the sixth.

Yadier Molina, playing while appealing a one-game suspension for making contact with an umpire, added a solo homer and a run-scoring single as the National League Central-leading Cards took the opener of a four-game series.

Matt Carpenter added three hits and scored all three times in the victory.

D-backs starter Trevor Cahill (3-6) was touched for five runs on nine hits in a five-inning effort.

Paul Goldschmidt knocked in the only run for NL West-leading Arizona.
